The Eagles are going to the Super Bowl. The Eagles. The Super Bowl. With Nick Foles at quarterback. The Birds absolutely destroyed the Minnesota Vikings Sunday night 38-7 and will face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in two weeks. Here's a look back at yesterday's amazing win, with all the key highlights, stats and greased poles you could ever wish for.
Despite fears, Eagles fans didn't get too out of control with their post-game celebrations. That's partly because they'd partied the whole day leading up to it. There were a couple small incidents that required police intervention, but mostly the tailgates in South Philly were all about fun — and believing in your team. Here's 15 photos from a gorgeous Sunday afternoon at the Linc.
Philly has cheesesteaks. Minnesota has something called "hotdish." In advance of yesterday's game, we broke down the two regional specialty foods to find out how they stack up when it comes to appearance, taste, ease of eating and political clout. Just like the Eagles smashed the Vikes, the cheesesteak comes out a clear winner. Bonus: Since Super Bowl LII is being held in Minneapolis, the guide is still useful for any fans headed out for the Big Game.
Dan Martino thinks politics is boring. That's exactly why the 33-year-old Olde Richmond native has jumped into the race to represent Philly's 177th District in Harrisburg — to shake things up. The district, which includes the area around Mayfair, Bridesburg and parts of Fishtown and Port Richmond, had for decades been repped by John Taylor, and his retirement has created a void waiting to be filled. Martino's platform? Cleaner, safer streets and action on the opioid crisis.
Sazon restaurant co-owner and Philly native Robert Campbell has been creating bean-to-bar chocolate. He'll demonstrate how, and talk about the ways you can use cacao and chocolate as a vehicle for flavor, nutrition and energy. Expect tastes from his line of single-origin bars, pours of drinking chocolate, and lots of cacao knowledge
