MINNEAPOLIS — The most talked-about moment of the Minnesota Twins home opener at Target Field happened before the game. As part of the special ceremony to kick off the Twins' 58th season, a bald eagle named Challenger was supposed to swoop into the stadium during the national anthem and land on its trainer's gloved hand.
MINNEAPOLIS—Tom who? For that matter, Carson who? At least for now. In a Super Bowl in which it was expected the greatest quarterback in NFL history was going to outshine the career journeyman, it was the journeyman who outshined the GOAT. And pretty much everybody else, including Pink and Justin Timberlake. Nick Foles, welcome to immortality. Not only was he every bit the passer of Tom Brady on this day, Foles also showed he's the better receiver. "Just another game," Foles deadpanned afterward.
Our hearts break, again. And this idea of "closure?" Overrated. We finally know what happened to Jacob Wetterling and even after all these years, even after we suspected this might have been the outcome all along, we hurt one more time.
