The week of every home game, the Eagles run a promotion called #FanFriday, in which Swoop could be hanging out anywhere in the area. It could be the Cherry Hill Mall, Dilworth Park, Pat’s and Geno’s, or pretty much any spot you can think of. The first fan to high five Swoop at that particular spot earns two free tickets to that week’s game.
Well, with the Eagles taking on the Giants this week on Thursday Night Football, the team understandably moved up #FanFriday to Tuesday. Here is this week’s winner:
Thanks to the trained eye of Mark Magowan, we learned this is not the first time Twitter user @YungYle has won the Fan Friday contest. Actually, it’s not even close to the first time:
