When it comes to famous Philadelphia Eagles fans, nobody is a bigger supporter than Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
The Millville, New Jersey native attends as many games at the Linc each season as he possibly can. He’s tight with the Eagles players and they’ve been known to reward him with keepsake footballs after scoring touchdowns. Trout returned the favor by gifting some bobbleheads to the Birds a couple of seasons ago.
So when Jim Salisbury caught up with Trout out at the MLB All-Star festivities in Cleveland on Monday, of course he had to ask him about his prediction for the Birds this coming season.
“Going to the Super Bowl, baby,” Trout said.
He was also asked about DeSean Jackson's return.
"I'm excited. Big playmaker. He's a big part of the offense and is going to help Carson Wentz out a lot."
Trout and Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz have been known to go hunting together in their free time. Maybe next time they go they'll have another Super Bowl victory to reminisce over.
