After winning the Eagles their first-ever Super Bowl in 2018, Nick Foles will never need to pay for a drink or meal in Philadelphia for the rest of his life.
But apparently after he led the Birds to their enormous 38-7 NFC title game win over the Vikings that winter, Foles managed to grab a bite and a beverage in Center City.
As in, right after the game. You might've been there.
Foles told the story of his sneaky, in-disguise dinner mission on a recent episode of his new Mission of Truth podcast with fellow former Eagle Chris Maragos.
The quarterback managed to weave his way through a city filled street to street with rabid Eagles fans going nuts - about his accomplishments! - unrecognized. That's no small feat.
Foles tells the story in his own words here:
Really excited for you to hear our new episode coming out this Friday 5/29 on my Super Bowl experience with the @Eagles. We dive deeper than we ever have before and share stories that have never been told. @MofT_Podcast @ChrisMaragos pic.twitter.com/TavIOawHDX— Nick Foles (@NickFoles) May 27, 2020
This line in particular stuck out to me as particularly surreal:
"I'm walking right next to people wearing my jerseys after we just won the NFC Championship Game."
I can't imagine many football players, if any, have experienced that kind of moment. You're the biggest name in the entire city, on the cusp of greatness, and you're walking down a side street completely unrecognized. Insanity.
For those who don't know, Del Frisco's has an enormous bank vault for private dining in its basement, which I would assume is where Foles headed:
It feels like every part of that Super Bowl run was too incredible to be true, except it all actually happened.
What a life.
