In fact, the word "gratitude" was mentioned seven times in his post on Friday as he reflected on a number of topics, including the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.
Eagles fans throughout Happy Valley saw their wildest dreams come true on the TV screens of their apartments and dorms, gathering at Beaver Canyon and in front of Old Main to celebrate the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl victory after Tom Brady's last-second Hail Mary pass fell harmlessly to the turf.
"I've got nothing to complain about", Boston resident Bill Crowley said. It's the first time the Eagles won in my lifetime.
