Philadelphia's unrelenting trash talk against the New England Patriots is still in peak form months after the Eagles dethroned Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and thousands of entitled Boston fans in Super Bowl LII.
A case could be made that we've become insufferable sore winners, but how else is a proud fanbase supposed to deal with a sore loser? Until Nick Foles confirms that he has received his congratulations and a large cup of clam chowder from Brady, it's open season.
One Eagles fan is taking the message straight to the enemy's backyard.
Over the weekend, the "self-proclaimed biggest Eagles fan alive" tweeted about a little bet that she had with her Patriots fan co-worker. If she got 4,100 likes and 3,300 retweets – numbers that symbolized the 41-33 final score of the Super Bowl – her co-worker would pay for the billboard of her choice to be displayed in Boston.
My Coworker(Pats fan) says if I can get 4100 likes and 3300 RTs he’ll pay to put this on a Billboard here in New England!! He says the chances of getting that many are as good as us winning another SB!!! Eagles Nation, let’s hand New Engalnd another L and make this happen!! pic.twitter.com/qiTx529uHU— Gina Lewis (@GinaMarie0125) June 23, 2018
Clearly, Lewis passed the test in flying colors. The Patriots fan must have forgotten that Philadelphia Eagles fans are the most rabid in the NFL – and were even before they had won a Super Bowl.
Lewis still is deciding what the billboard will say and where it will be placed, keeping in mind that some businesses will likely refuse to display the message.
Update: I’m calling around to get estimates so this man can pay up! I’m sure we’ll get a few refusals from businesses around here so it may take a bit! Lol! Anyone in Mass with suggestions or a hookup feel free to let me know! Idc where in New England it goes! 🤣— Gina Lewis (@GinaMarie0125) June 24, 2018
Stay tuned.... https://t.co/gl7IJFYYbL
Update! Got an estimate of $500 to place it on a Digital Billboard on Boston’s busiest highway so it’s seen by traffic traveling East & West! Sadly, it’s only for 24 hours! But I want it digital so it can be seen on both sides! So their home/less time or here/more time? 🤔 https://t.co/gl7IJFYYbL— Gina Lewis (@GinaMarie0125) June 25, 2018

Can’t do a poll because it wouldn’t let me enter it all.
Give me your vote on these. Feel free to suggest another! 😊

Any of those options would work, but if there's a way to superimpose it over Brandon Graham's pivotal strip sack, that should ensure Brady has reoccurring nightmares for the foreseeable future.
