Alright, alright, alright, count actor Matthew McConaughey in as an Eagles fan, or at least a Nick Foles fan.
John Bridges, the managing editor of the Austin American-Statesman newspaper, tweeted out this photo earlier today showing a full-page ad McConaughey purchased to congratulate Austin, Texas native Nick Foles on winning the Super Bowl one week ago.
McConaughey was born in nearby Uvalde, Texas, but resides and went to college in Austin, where Foles was born and raised.
Some have said that there needs to be a movie made about the Philadelphia Eagles season. Perhaps there will be some competition between Bradley Cooper and McConaughey for the role of the MVP.
Jason Kelce delivered one of the single greatest championship day rants of all time. Dressed in a full Mummers costume, a nod to the outfits worn in the New Year's Day parade held annually in Philadelphia, Kelce was seen high-fiving fans and riding a bicycle during the parade route, but he saved his best for last.
Still in costume, Kelce stepped to the microphone on the art museum steps and called out many of the hot takes that have been said and written about these Eagles. The one person Kelce called out by name was former longtime NFL executive Mike Lombardi.
"When Doug Pederson was hired, he was rated as the worst coaching hire by a lot of freaking analysts out there in the media," Kelce said. "This past offseason, some clown named Mike Lombardi told him that he was the least qualified head coach in the NFL! Doug Pederson! The man who went for it on fourth down in the Super Bowl with a trick play! He wasn't playing just to be mediocre. He's playing for a Super Bowl. And it don't stop with him. It does not stop with him."
Lombardi heard the speech and responded via Twitter shortly after Kelce ended his speech with a flurry of curse words.
It's hard to argue with Doug's results.
Entering this season, Lombardi was very critical of Pederson but later backtracked on his comments and actually picked the Eagles
to win the Super Bowl against his former employer, the New England Patriots, when many thought the Eagles were overmatched.
The Eagles have fed off the negative comments of others and their underdog status and, perhaps, it's one of the contributing factors to their success this season.
Sidney, where's your phone?
Millions of fans lined the roads leading from Lincoln Financial Field to the Philadelphia Museum of Art with cell phones in hand, hoping to capture this once-in-a-lifetime event. That is, most people had their cell phones in hand.
Eagles rookie CB Sidney Jones apparently dropped his phone during the parade and it fell into the hands of some Eagles fans, these Eagles fans, who posted a photo on his verified Instagram.
Sidney Jones confirmed he did, in fact, lose his phone.
Can you imagine the horror Jones probably endured after dropping his phone? Losing your phone for a split second is usually panic-inducing let alone dropping it in the streets around millions of people.
We’re not sure if the fans went snooping in Jones’ phone beyond this photo, but hopefully, this fun viral moment was the only dig into his personal device.
Update: He has his phone back.
Another update: These heroes did not snoop into his phone.
