Bud Light will treat fans to free beer if the Eagles manage to win Super Bowl LII, and it’s all thanks to right tackle Lane Johnson.
As if you needed any more motivation to cheer the Eagles on this season, Johnson promised he’s “giving out beer to everybody” should the club win the big game. That caught the attention of the national media, and before too long, Anheuser-Busch property Bud Light, which responded with quite the generous offer.
There are some not-entirely-insignificant dilemmas here, mainly being that the free liquid is Bud Light. I’m more of a Yuengling man, so this news actually comes as a massive disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably choke a few down, but I don’t have to be happy about it.
Also, does Johnson technically still owe Eagles fans beer if AB throws a party in his name? Technically, he’s not giving anybody a thing!
You hear that, Lane? Bud Light party or not, I’m still going to be hitting you up for beer after the Eagles win the Super Bowl. And maybe spring for the craft stuff, too.
Philadelpha 76ers fan Kevin Hart has a new-ish YouTube show he's calling "Called As Balls." The premise is pretty simple: he and a guest take an ice bath and chill.
Previous guests have included Draymond Green, Blake Griffin, LaVar Ball, and Candace Parker.
Hart just so happens to have former Sixer and current Dallas Maverick Nerlens Noel on as his guest this week.
Aside from making fun of the locker room in Philly, Hart also takes a jab at Joel Embiid. Hart does a decent-enough Embiid impression with a "Trust the Process" but he also mocks the way Embiid speaks. Not cool.
Look for that around the 6-minute mark.
Nerlens also says Dirk Nowitski is just as funny as Hart. I'd believe it.
What goes around comes around, at least for some charitable Eagles fans.
Some good karma has found its way to particular Eagles fans, courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. Fans who donated to head coach Mike Zimmer’s foundation to apologize for some of Philadelphia’s rowdy behavior before, during and after the NFC Championship Game have received a special memento from U.S Bank Stadium.
Eagles fans were gifted a jar of the historic confetti that streamed down onto the newly-crowned Super Bowl Champions at the Vikings’ home field on Feb. 4 and a thank you note acknowledging their contribution to the organization.
Check out Reddit user EYEsoar’s photo for proof.
While it may not be enough for fans to perform their own Jalen Mills-style confetti angels, these generous Eagles fans will hold a piece of Philadelphia history.
The donation from Eagles fans now total more than $18,000 as of Jan. 26, according to the ZimFoundation Twitter page and we can only imagine this total will grow.
It pays to be nice.
