Have you ever been cheated on? Or better yet, have you ever felt betrayed by your sports team?

I've been cheated on several times by women, and sports teams.

The sports team that I feel betrayed by at times is the Philadelphia Eagles.

Before I begin, I want you to understand that I love the Eagles to death, but my experience with cheating girlfriends and disappointing seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles have left me to believe that they resemble each other in many ways.

A girl I used to date used to tell me that she would change week in and week out. She would do well for three weeks, but then end up disappointing again by cheating on me.

In comparison, the Philadelphia Eagles at times would go on three-game winning streaks, and show some signs of Super Bowl contention, but then lose to a sub.-500 team and give me doubt again.

I dated this girl for 10 years, her parents told me, "be patient; things will change." Subsequently, the head office of the Eagles for the past 10 years have said they're doing everything in their power to bring home a championship.

Her girlfriends would always show me their rings that they've received, I thought to myself how similar this is to the other NFL teams that have gotten their rings.

No matter how beautiful she was, no matter how many promises, no matter every attempt she made to try and improve things, she always broke my heart.

To the Philadelphia Eagles, I love you guys forever no matter how many times you disappoint me. You lead me on continuously in hope that you will be a champion one day. Until that day, I wait patiently.
