Philadelphia Eagles fans – famous and otherwise – took to social media on Sunday night to celebrate the team's first Super Bowl title. As the Nick Foles-led Birds put the wraps on a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, the excitement and celebration poured forth on Twitter.
Here's what they were saying:

I think of my Father tonite who was a HUGE Eagles fan, taking me as a young boy to see the Eagles play at Franklin Field many years ago. Thanks for those memories Dad, I'm sure you're smiling in Heaven! GO EAGLES!!— Michael A. Nutter (@Michael_Nutter) February 5, 2018
Nick Foles was cut.— Nathan H. Rubin (@NathanHRubin) February 5, 2018
He thought about quitting.
He became a back-up quarterback.
He worked hard.
He got an opportunity.
He took advantage of his opportunity.
He’s now a Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl MVP.
The lesson? Never give up. #SuperBowl
