New Eagles safety Will Parks is from Philadelphia, and he's extremely excited to be back home - so excited that he stayed up until 2 a.m. Tuesday night answering questions from Eagles fans.
You see, Parks is an avid and entertaining Twitter user. He often tweets in all caps, like he's sprinting through his tweets at full volume. It's chaotic, and fantastic.
His Q&A Tuesday night began after 1 a.m., when the 25-year-old shared some news about Eagles head coach Doug Pederson's music choices:
COACH DOUG IS LIT. CALLED EM EARLIER. I CANT WAIT. HES LIT. ITS LIT. THE ENERGY IS THERE. HE WAS LISTENING TO POST MALONE. ALL MAN. LETS DO PEDERSONNNNNNN.— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
he was GOING HARD with the Post.. I’m excited to work with em!!— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
Gotta say, I didn't see Pederson as a Post Malone fan. I figured more 70s and 80s rock, maybe a little country and bluegrass from his Louisiana days. (Plus, Post Malone is an enormous Cowboys fan. Hmm.)
Anyway, Parks realized Eagles fans were still awake and responding to his tweets, so he fired up a Q&A session. The questions quickly turned Philly-related, so here are some highlights.
Parks weighed in on Sheetz vs. Wawa, an easy lay-up for anyone endearing themselves to Philly fans:
WAWA. TF IS A SHEETZ? https://t.co/C2wzRxqSyL— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
He nailed the requisite cheesesteak question:
Delasandros. Max’s. https://t.co/CaAAZuYAV4— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
He gave us a little more insight on Pederson:
CHESS https://t.co/Hg13paXK5e— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
He gave his assessment of Carson Wentz:
MVP if he didn’t get hurt. I’m all in on Carson. No bap. Buddy can sling. He can run. He can read. He can see. He can play. Play very good. https://t.co/J266mOdwY4— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
And of Allen Iverson:
BIG TIME. A. I. IS THE BEST POUND FOR POUND PLAYER EVER. LEBRON MY GUY. https://t.co/SEz2dZPsI4— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
And he gave us his favorite ice cream flavors:
Pistachio. Butter Pecan. https://t.co/7cHp8mdkHZ— William (@PhillyWill11) March 25, 2020
If Parks had said his favorite ice cream was vanilla Haagen Dazs, I would've worried he was pandering. But it seems like this really is the high-energy guy Eagles fans are getting.
The same guy, of course, from this iconic interaction during his college days at the University of Arizona:
He also clearly has plenty of energy: Parks tweeted his last answer at 2 a.m. and was back tweeting by 8 a.m.
