In anticipation of the ‘Monday Night Football’ matchup between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, ‘Rocky’ received a makeover.
By Robby Sabo
Well this is certainly interesting, and downright fantastic.
Tonight, on Monday Night Football, Eli Manning and the New York Giants take on the Eagles in Philadelphia, the place not suitable for the faint of heart. With New York sitting at 3-2 and the Eagles at 2-3, it’s a huge game.
Both fan-bases know this. Although, perhaps a little extra incentive couldn’t hurt.
Philly fans have to be raging right now after they woke up to this site:
#RePost———————————— #TeamWeatherford has invaded the city of brotherly love…. Can’t wait to see my brothers get to work on #MNF Photo Cred: @Teddyv28 via Twitter #NYG #Giants (Just to clarify I was tagged in this photo, it was too good not to repost) Keep it PG in the comments folks, kids read these
What you’re looking at is Philly’s statue of Rocky Balboa wearing Giants blue. In fact, he’s donning the No. 5, Steve Weatherford’s number when he was with the club.
Although Weatherford claims he had nothing to do with the Rocky makeover, the photo does come from Weatherford himself.
Now this is grounds for an especially fun night from Lincoln Financial Field.
