Fly Eagles, Fly

St. Francis of Assisi statue

As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for the NFC championship game with the Minnesota Vikings this weekend, the Birds have a new fan in their corner.

It’s St. Francis of Assisi, who donned some Eagles gear to show his allegiance to the team. Of course, this is no surprise. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment, so it makes perfect sense that he would favor Eagles over Vikings and green over purple.
