Many of you may know that I’m a Philadelphia Eagles fan. Some of you may not know that a ten year-old Robbie Holmes made a banner with construction paper for his fifth grade classroom to celebrate the Eagles’ 1981 NFC win, only to watch his boyhood hero Ron Jaworski lose Super Bowl XV to the Raiders. As any native of the Philly area, who also was alive when “Rocky” won the Academy Award for Best Picture, I am a sucker for anything that resembles that story. Yesterday I decided that Nick Foles is the new Rocky Balboa! Initially thrown away after a decent 2014 season, he bounced around the NFL for a couple of years and found himself back with the Eagles as a backup quarterback in 2017. After the Eagles’ star quarterback Carson Wentz solidified the team’s berth into the playoffs with a season-ending injury, Foles found himself as the Eagles’ starter in the playoffs. After squeaking by Atlanta in the Divisionals, he obliterated the Vikings in the NFC Championship game, positioning himself to be face to face with Tom Brady, the most formidable quarterback in the history of mankind. Just like the second-rate Rocky Balboa when he was the unlikely pick to fight the World Champion Apollo Creed! People, you can’t make this stuff up! The Rocky story is alive and well in Nick Foles and this weekend proves that dreams do come true.
