Why I am glad the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl

This one may be a bit controversial.

I’ve never really been invested in football, in fact, Sunday’s game was only the second game I had watched this season. I started watching when I saw that there was only a 1 point difference in the scores (32-33). The part of the game I saw was riveting, and I was definitely glad I watched it. I didn’t really know who to root for at first. I mean, I don’t live in Philadelphia or anywhere in the New England area. It wasn’t until I did a quick google search that I found out who to root for: The Philadelphia Eagles. My decision had nothing to do with their skills, their players, or their location. It all had to do with the national anthem. The fact of the matter is, that the idea of players taking a knee during the national anthem is garbage. It didn’t get their point across. It just made them appear ungrateful of our veterans and the great country we live in. My quick google search discovered that the Eagles had never taken a knee during the national anthem. Ever. However, the Patriots, (unpatriotically) had 17 incidents of players taking a knee. Now don’t get me wrong, I fully support the first amendment. But the first amendment gives me the right to disagree with their protest of showing dishonor to the flag and bringing politics into an expected time of fun and enjoyment. I am sure you may not want to read about politics here, and I would much rather spend time talking about other things, so I will try my best to keep from filling my website with political stuff.
