I’m not a big sports fan, but American football can be really exciting. And of course, it makes me happy to see my home team doing well. So I just have to brag that this year, the Philadelphia Eagles won the final game of the season - the Super Bowl!
This win was important to Eagles fans because it was the first time Philadelphia won the Super Bowl. They made it this far twice before, but lost the final game both times. The other team this year, the New England Patriots, are one of the best teams in football history. No one expected the Eagles to do well – they were the underdog.
It was an exciting game, with both teams playing well and scoring in turn. The ending was especially tense – I couldn’t look away from the screen. But with a final score of 41-33, the Eagles took home the Lombardi Trophy and earned their place in football history.
Thanks to Dave and Ayumi for hosting a little Super Bowl party at their house. I’m glad I got to watch the game live!
