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.
On May 20, Chase Utley indicated that his Dodger teammates have started calling him dad, so it stands to reason that on Father’s Day, they would come bearing gifts for the oldest position player in the National League.
Utley posted these two photos to his Instagram Story today showing gifts from teammate Kike Hernandez, which includes one awesome T-shirt.
In addition to his fake teammate son, Utley also has two sons, six-year-old Benjamin and three-year-old Max, who got to take part in a very special art project for their dad. Chase gave his sons a pair of white cleats to color on, which he wore for today’s game against the Giants.
They turned out how you’d expect, which is a pretty cool thing for Chase to wear on Father’s Day.
If you can’t get enough cuteness from members of the 2008 Phillies, there’s a video of Cole Hamels having tea with his five-year-old daughter, Reeve, that will melt your heart.
Baseball is a sport that can uniquely bring families together, whether someone is your real dad or just the father figure in the clubhouse.
OK, so the caption of Fox Sports Southwest's video is maybe a little misleading.
"The absolute CUTEST thing you will see this Fathers Day is Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter!" the caption reads.
I'm guessing that, if you're a dad, the cutest thing you'll see this Father's Day is your own kid(s).
But man, this is an adorable video.
Former Phillie (and 2008 World Series MVP) Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi adopted five-year-old Reeve, one of their four children, from Ethiopia as a baby after she was abandoned at birth, found alone in a field by the police and placed in an orphanage. In the video, she asks Cole a series of rapid-fire questions and looks like she's having an absolute blast hanging out with her dad. So does Cole.
"If you were retired, what would you do?" Reeve asks.
"How 'bout I'd just like to be a dad, would that be good?" Hamels responds.
