Great quote below from the article by Page2′s Brian Murphy.  I recommend checking this one out.

Link: ESPN.com: Page 2 – Philadelphia deserved this day.

Sunday was about Philly, and Eagles fans, and a dream coming true after three straight years of their hearts and spirits being put through the "Liquify" level in the sports blender of fate.

The key moment, when we all knew it was to be Philly’s Day, was when little Timmy Kelly, blind and stricken with cerebral palsy, belted out a national anthem that had even hardened Philly fans — the ones whose lifetime of cheesesteaks have spawned the hardest of arteries — drying moist eyes. The good sign for the Eagles wasn’t so much Little Timmy’s beautiful effort. It was the fact that, incredibly, nobody booed the kid. It was then, and only then, that I saw clear sailing for Iggles Nation.
