New England town drapes giant eagle flag over rock statue

Apparently, Mayor Kenney knows a good bet when he sees one.


Remember when Mayor Jim Kenney refused to make a bet with the Mayor of Minneapolis before the NFC Championship game? And when he said there was “absolutely no way” he was going to put an Eagles jersey on our Billy Penn statue?

You might remember the bet he made with Brockton, Massachusetts, mayor Bill Charpentier in January, who asked the losing team city to place the winning team’s outfit on their Rocky statue. (Brockton has a statue of boxer Rocky Marciano.)

Apparently the most superstitious Philly Eagles fan knows a good bet when he sees one, as Brockton’s Rocky is now draped in a huge Eagles flag. (And could we say he’s more beautiful than ever?)

Of course, it took Brockton three weeks to follow through on the bet. (Maybe they wanted to wait for some of the pain to subside?)

Either way, Kenney was happy.

Here’s a video of Carpenter covering Brockton’s Rocky in an eagle costume, courtesy of The company newspaper.
