I want to feed the babies
Who can’t get enough to eat
I want to shoe the children
New shoes on their feet
I want to house the people
Living in the street
Oh, there’s a solution
I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly right into the future…
—Steve Miller Band
The Philadelphia Eagles busted up and beat down the New England Patriots in last night’s Super Bowl, winning the game 41-33. But this game was different: Fans began to choose sides based on political viewpoints rather than hometown favorites or admiration for particular players.
In a sense, this game was as much a battle between two American professional athletic teams as it was a battle of American political ideologies.
What a sign for better times ahead for the country, and, in fact, the world, that the Eagles—a team who’s namesake is the very animal who is symbolic of the United States—beat the “Patriots” during the country’s most volatile, bitter split since the Civil Rights Era of the 60s.
If anyone is unaware:
Patriots owner, Bob Kraft, gave donald trump a $1 million donation.
Head coach, Bill Belichick, wrote trump a letter supporting his political platform.
All three men consistently assert their friendship and loyalty to trump.
On the other hand, The Eagles are considered the most woke, progressive team in the NFL, according to Daily News reporter, Evan Grossman, who’s article “Right vs. Left: Woke Eagles, Trump-loving Patriots are on opposite sides of political spectrum” points out:
Eagles owner Jeff Lurie earned a doctorate in social policy from Brandeis University.
Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins helped to found the Players Coalition and took his Trump-defying anthem demonstrations well beyond the field to work with cops, politicians and convicts on criminal justice reforms.
Chris Long, defensive end, played for free this season and donated his entire salary to fund educational opportunities and, just like last year when he won it with the Pats, he’s said he won’t attend a Super Bowl celebration at the White House.
And, so, to all the members of The Resistance, to the progressives and humanitarians out there, who may be feeling politically tired and weary, heed this Monday message: sit back, press play and bask in the message from the universe: A blue wave is coming in the November elections and the tide is about to change.
