January 27, 2009

I'm posting this as I'm about to take down our Eagles/Phillies history border in the classroom. It's time. As the SuperBowl starts without us, and as spring training starts again,last year's teams are a thing of the past.

Throughout the year they inspired, caused anger, taught the meaning of the word persistence, defeat, and victory. Each year I start on the right and each Monday post a page from the Philadelphia Inquirer. If the teams make it to the playoffs, the pages reach the flag, if they fall short, well...

This year the Phillies added to the length, a World Series pennant adding more in the middle. The Eagles made the playoffs, but fell short of the "big" prize. Now, it's time to move on. The room will seem empty, but will soon be filled with third grade victories as we move into the final two marking periods.
