If Football's a Religion, Why Don't We Have a Prayer?

3.82 of 5 stars 3.82  ·  rating details  ·  34 ratings  ·  3 reviews
The last time a Philadelphia professional sports team won a championship, Ronald Reagan was in the White House and Return of the Jedi was number one at the box office. No city with all four major sports has gone longer without one. The local NFL franchise, the Eagles, has not won a title since 1960, putting its devoted fans through decades of futility and heartbreak.

Funny book, especially if you are one of the long suffering Philadelphia Eagles fans the book celebrates. The book has a fatal flaw however, in that Longman is NOT an Eagles fan. He makes it clear he is a lifelong sportswriter, and as such, cheers for no one. As a result, he doesn not quite throw himself into the action the way Warren St. John does with "Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer", so he has no real vested interest in the Birds inevitable collapse against the Patriots.
