BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Congratulations to Philadelphia and their fans for a terrific victory last night.

Of course, we Patriots fans are disappointed, but among true fans there will be no sense of being cheated or any of that nonsense.

The better team won, and it was well-deserved. In fact, the Eagles were so on fire, I was proud of the Pats for making the game as close as it was.

For younger fans who might still be struggling to deal with the loss today, this is how you deal with it – you compliment the winners, rally behind your team, and start looking forward to next year. We here in Boston have no reason to cry about it when we lose one once in awhile.

And from what we know of Tom Brady, he will be quietly working on his pass-catching between now and next season.

A few other observations from last night:

I like Justin Timberlake’s acting work in the movies, but his music is just awful. Why was he even there last night? Was Vanilla Ice unavailable?

With a couple of minor exceptions, the multi-million dollar commercials were awful too. What is the story with all of this virtue-signalling, where companies try to tie their product to social justice and equality?

That’s better than branding yourself with white supremacy I suppose, but does anyone really swallow it? And by the way, I don’t think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ever intended his speeches to be used to sell trucks, even good ones.

Anyway, it was a great game, and while my team didn’t win, it was otherwise a fun evening.

Go Celtics, go Bruins, and the truck leaves Fenway for Florida today.
