Super Bowl bet: Zoo New England names goat 'Foles'

- After the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, many fans took to calling Nick Foles the GOAT, or ‘the greatest of all time.’

Now, those who pay a visit to Zoo New England’s Franklin Park Zoo in Boston can meet a new kind of goat that pays homage to the Eagles quarterback.

Before the Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Zoo and Zoo New England made a friendly wager, agreeing to name their next-born goat after the opposing team's quarterback.

The Eagles, of course, defeated the New England Patriots 41-33, delivering the franchise its first ever Super Bowl victory.

And, to its credit, Zoo New England honored the wager.

"We don't kid around when it comes to Super Bowl bets," the zoo tweeted.

On April 23, 'Foles' the Nigerian Dwarf goat was born. On Tuesday, May 8, ‘Foles’ was formally introduced to the world.

The Philadelphia Zoo thanked Zoo New England for honoring their bet, adding, "What an exciting time to know only a world where the Eagles are world champions!"
