Bob Costas Articulates Philly's Ownership of New York

Bob Costas wins.  For everything that's been said and written in the last 24 hours, nobody's put it all together better than Costas does during this two minute clip. 

During halftime of the Patriots/Packers game, Costas broke in this little soliloquy where he manages to grasp the current state of the Philadelphia/New York rivalry - and he nails it perfectly. It's truly a fun two minutes of audio for any Philly sports fan. (I'm going to give him a pass on the tired "Santa snowball" line.)

As 2010 winds down, just think about this: It's been YEARS since the Eagles lost to the Giants. Cliff Lee spurned the Yankees to play in Philly. The Mets are the Mets, and they'll forever be terrible. And the Flyers are arguably the best team in the NHL.

God, life is good.  And it's only gonna get funner.
