99 Year Old Eagles Fan is the Real Winner

Superfan Phil Basser, who turns 100 next month, was able to fulfill his dream of seeing his Eagles win a Super Bowl yesterday in Minneapolis yesterday.

The true winner of the Super Bowl yesterday was Philadelphia Eagles fan Phil Basser, who’s waited 99 years to see his team take the field.

“Seeing them slog in the snow and blustery wind during the 1960 championship game at Franklin Field,” replied when asked about his favorite Eagles’ memory. “They had to be true soldiers to do that and I was so impressed and inspired by them, and best of all, they won!”

He saw their last championship, and this year, Basser is confident he’ll see another.

“There is an old saying, ‘Always a bridesmaid but never a bride,’” Basser said. “Well this year, I can’t wait to walk you down that 100-yard aisle to Super Bowl victory!”
