Free tickets to the
Super Bowl LII Rematch this Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
Free Birds Tickets?
As many of you know, I am a huge Eagles fan and Season Ticket holder. Needless to say, one of the greatest moments in Philadelphia history was the Eagles 41-33 Victory in Super Bowl LII back on February 4, 2018. This week, the Birds play the Pats for the first time since LII, and I would like to offer readers of “Around the Block” an opportunity to receive free tickets to the game.
n honor of Nick Foles’s #9, I will provide the 9th reader who replies to this email with two Lower Bowl seats (Section 125) to the game this Sunday at 4:25 p.m. at the Linc. (I will email you the digital tickets).
In addition to the Super Bowl rematch angle, the Pats are (as always) one of the very best teams in the NFL this season. And this is a huge game for the Birds. Coming off the bye week, and sitting at 5-4, the Eagles are tied for first place with the Cowboys, and are the favorites to win the NFC East. Upsetting New England at the Linc this weekend would be a huge step in obtaining that goal. It is not too often the Birds are a home dog, right?

The National Dog Show is actually worth the trip to Oaks (and frankly, not much is).
