PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Yet another homecoming for the world champion Eagles as the Birds offensive linemen, including Brandon Brooks rang in Tuesday's 76'ers game—showing fans some brotherly love between franchises during this week long Super Bowl victory celebration.
"I'm just so excited. I'm so happy. It's just been so surreal."
The Buckley family came over from Gilbertsville decked out in their Eagles green specifically for this occasion and a chance to see the hometown heroes up close.
Signs that said, 'Congratulations, Champs' were all over the Wells Fargo Center and the 76ers mascot Franklin the Dog welcomed in Swoop for some on the court fun among other signs of unity.
"That's why you see the Brotherly Love shirts and signs all over the place. It's like the 76ers the Eagle—brotherly love—we all come together. We're going to represent them the same way they represent us."
Fans we talked with cant help but wonder if the Eagles glory will rub off on the Philly hoops club.
"First Super Bowl win so it's good for the city. There's a lot of excitement here so I hope they carry over to the 76ers so we can have a championship, too."
