Bonus #2 – Congratulations Philadelphia Eagles

Funny to Informing with John!

This is just a little bonus thing. I wanted to congratulate my hometown on a hard fought Super Bowl win. The city and the people there get such a bad reputation from media and other places.

I discuss a little bit about this bad reputation they get, the Super Bowl game itself (a little), and the fact that the entire city is now promised a beer! They were the underdogs all year and pulled out a championship for the city of Philadelphia, AND with their backup quarterback! – Respond and begin discussions! – show your support for the show!
