Most people try to persuade others that they knew the winner of an important game all along, especially when they witness an upset game, but these people never seem to have any proof. Luckily, my proof is set in stone, or, actually, the Kings Courier. All the way back in November, I wrote a little article about almost being a fortune teller after I correctly predicted the Astros winning the World Series even though the ‘stros won in 7 games rather than 6 as I initially predicted. In the concluding paragraph, I made a few other predictions just to test my skill in the art of extrasensory ability. One of these has already proved to be incorrect after Oklahoma lost in the college football playoffs, but my prediction that was perhaps the most unbelievable and unforeseeable came true this weekend.

The Philadelphia Eagles defied all odds just to make Super bowl LII after a late regular season injury to their youthful, possible MVP candidate Carson Wentz, who went down in week 14 against the Rams with an ACL injury which put an end to a magnificent season for him and endangered the Eagles fans’ hopes on their team making and winning the Super Bowl. The team already had the best record in the league which they managed to hang on to in the final weeks of the season, but people viewed the new backup quarterback Nick Foles as completely inferior and many people throughout sports thought that he ruined the Eagles’ chances of taking home Super Bowl LII.

The Philadelphia Eagles disagreed. The Eagles came out firing leading the Patriots 9-3 after the first quarter and 22-12 at the half. It seemed that they might actually have a chance to run away with the championship, but the other team had this guy named Tom Brady. Brady was amazing during the game throwing for 505 yards on 28 completions and 3 touchdowns. The Patriots came back in the third quarter to bring the score to Eagles 29-Patriots 26. The final quarter was filled with excitement as well. With just minutes to go and down by 5, Brady came out to lead the Patriots on what could have been a march down to the field to yet another Super Bowl victory, but a collapse in the offensive line caused an Eagles pass rusher to come from behind Brady and swat the ball out of his hand causing a fumble that led to an Eagles field goal which sealed the victory.

Eagles fans, of course, loved the victory, the franchise’s first Super Bowl. They have a parade planned for Thursday which will certainly be filled with mayhem. After asking a local Eagles fan, Jake McKay, about how it felt to be a Super Bowl champion, he responded, “It feels really good.” The real victory, however, goes to myself. Months ago, I picked a team which has never won a Super Bowl in the past to make history, and they pulled through. While a hardcore Eagles fan somewhere probably had a tattoo predicting the Super Bowl years ago, I’m still one of the first people to predict the correct winner of this year’s championship. I might not have known that they would have done it with their backup quarterback or in the stunning and exhilarating style in which they won, but I still can take home the satisfaction that my mental powers succeeded.

    Myself as well as many others were absolutely shocked with the outcome of the Super Bowl champions. I never knew you could predict the future as well as you did. Great article!

    Great article, Hayden! The fact that you predicted the Eagles to win months ago is amazing! I’m very lucky to be classmates with such an intellectually superior human being like you!
