Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles, who have earned the right to lose to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. We’re all very excited for them. Condolences to the Minnesota Vikings, who will have to conduct exit interviews while other teams are preparing to play the Super Bowl in U.S. Bank Stadium. We’re all feeling very sorry for them.
