Philly Special Statue Unveiled at Lincoln Financial Field
If you're going to the Eagles' season opener tonight, make sure you grab a picture with the brand new "Philly Special" statue. The "Philly Special" is undoubtedly the most iconic play in the history of Philadelphia sports and it has now been immortalized in a statue erected outside of Lincoln Financial Field.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the statue was created by artist Raymond Gibby and paid for by Bud Light. It "depicts the moment (Eagles quarterback) Nick (Foles) asked (coach) Doug (Peterson), 'You want Philly Philly?' To which Pederson famously responded, 'Yeah, let's do it.'"
The statue is located in the Headhouse Plaza of the stadium and will remain there for at least this season (and many longer).
