And the 76ers won, so then I kind of started watching – at that time I also played Little League baseball and my team just happened to be the Phillies – so I started watching the Phillies for a bit. But my main sport has always been football, so when it came to football season I started rooting for the Eagles and I just never stopped. That was back in the early 80s."
