I might be bad luck for the Eagles...

Since I don't have a television, I purchased a streaming audio feed of the Eagles game today against the Bears.  I started listening around the 2nd quarter when they were winning 9 to 6, all scored with field goals apparently.  Then the Bears got two more field goals to make it 9 to 12.  Then, the Eagles scored a touchdown in the last quarter bringing it to 16 to 12.  With a minute left, the Bears were on the complete opposite side of the field and had no time-outs, which would make one seem like the Eagles were going to win.  But somehow, and I don't know how because I wasn't paying really close attention (instead filing coins and junk mail into jars and trash bags), then got all the way to the 27-yard line with 20 seconds to go.  And then they did a pass and scored a touchdown with 9 seconds left!  I was like, "What???" 

And then it was over.  Now the Eagles are 2-4, and the coach or manager or someone is sounding really depressed.  I'd be worried that he's gonna go home and drink a bottle of Scotch and sleeping pills.  Where's the anger?  What about all the testosterone, people?  I wanna watch the post-game video but .asx files don't seem to play on the Mac, even with Windows Media Player.  Any clues anyone?  Oh, wait, I upgraded and now it's working.

So, my first game.  A loss.  I am strangely upset.  I remember when I was temporarily an Angels fan as a kid that every game I went to was lost.  This may be why I gave up on watching sports so early.  I may be able to dig up some long buried personal issues with this new sports hobby.  Think I'll open this bottle of wine and finish my cleaning mission.
