The Vince Lombardi Trophy now has a home in Philly

There’s no place like NovaCare.

In case you haven’t heard, a shiny piece of hardware comes with the prestige of winning the Super Bowl. The Lombardi Trophy is here to stay in its new home in Philadelphia.

It looks like the trophy has successfully made its way from Minneapolis and survived a rowdy parade down Broad Street, though things got a bit dicey where Malcolm Jenkins was involved. It is unclear, however, if this is a temporary home for the offseason, or a more permanent location. The trophy is now located in the  NovaCare Complex, the Eagles' practice facility, located at the corner of Broad St. and Pattison Ave.

Philadelphia is definitely not complaining about the extra company and would even be happy to make room for more next year.

Maybe it took a little bit more than a few clicks of ruby red slippers, about 52 more years’ worth of work, but the trophy is home at last.

Rocky and Adonis return to Philadelphia in new Creed II trailer

The latest chapter in the Rocky Balboa saga is coming to theatres this Thanksgiving and the trailer for it dropped this morning.

Creed II picks up with Michael B. Jordan reprising his role as Apollo Creed's son, Adonis, coming to grips with fighting someone with the last name Drago — clearly a flashback to his father getting killed in the ring at the hands of Russian Ivan Drago.

Sly Stallone returns as the old and wise Rocky Balboa, dropping knowledge bombs instead of left hooks.

At least part of the movie takes place in Philadelphia, with a skyline shot showing up in the trailer. The first Creed movie had plenty of Philly flavor, so we're hoping we'll get a bit more in the sequel. 

Fan recreates Eagles Super Bowl ring out of sand

Fan recreates Eagles Super Bowl ring out of sand

Here’s another story brought to you by the fact that the Eagles are Super Bowl champions.

Remember that gorgeous ring the team received last week? Well, someone made a replica completely out of sand.

That’s pretty impressive work and it’s awesome to see that Stefen Wisniewski is so proud of his ring that he’s wearing it to the beach. His former teammate and "Philly Special" QB, Trey Burton, is questioning that decision, though.

After the ring ceremony, Wisniewski posted this to his Twitter account, a heartfelt story about what the ring means to him.

The guys on the Eagles just get it. Throughout this journey that brought Philadelphia its first Super Bowl trophy, the players have put the fans first and taken everyone along for this incredible ride. It’s awesome to see a story like this where a Super Bowl champion is so proud to share his new ring with a fan.
