Not many movies have been embraced by a city like the “Rocky” franchise.
There is a statue of Rocky/actor Sylvester Stallone in Philadelphia and the “Rocky steps” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art are tourist attraction.
Stallone, who attended high school in Philadelphia, is a huge Eagles fan, and he shared a photo on Instagram of his statue dressed in Eagles gear. Stallone quoted from the movie “Rocky” when making a Super Bowl prediction:
“Now here is a statue that REALLY knows how to dress like a WINNER!!!!! I have tremendous respect for Tom Brady and the Patriots, but “… It’s about how much you can TAKE and keep moving forward! That’s how WINNIN’ is done!!!!” EAGLES BY KNOCKOUT!!! @Phillymayor @Phillycityrep #Flyeaglesfly”
Never miss a local story.
Stallone also shared a video and spoke of his love for the Eagles:
Stallone shared one more inspirational message: “Go for it! Philadelphia eagles going to fly high in the Super Bowl!#eaglesflyhigh”
