eglz1 Posted January 30, 2021 Share Posted January 30, 2021 How many here know the history of the statue of Doug & Nick? Lots of people refer to it but it wasn't commissioned by the Eagles or anything like that. Here's one version of the history: https://theeagleswire.usatoday.com/2018/09/05/bud-light-unveils-statue-of-doug-pederson-and-nick-foles-calling-for-philly-special/ Quote The special moment between Nick Foles and Doug Pederson in Super Bowl LII is now cast in metal for all generations of Eagles fans to remember forever.T Bud Light unveiled the statue of Doug and Nick inside the Headhouse Plaza at Lincoln Financial Field on Wednesday morning. The statue depicts the moment Nick asked Doug, "You want Philly Philly?" To which Pederson famously responded, "Yeah, let's do it." The rest, as they say, is history. Foles caught a touchdown on the trick play on fourth down to the amazement of the sporting world. The base of the statue includes the conversation the two had and that the statue is courtesy of Bud Light. The bronze statue, which took four months to construct and stands over 9 feet tall, was created by Utah-based artist Raymond Gibby. We're told the statue will remain outside of the Linc "for at least this season" with the possibility of it being a permanent fixture. It was part of a Bud Light promotion. https://www.phillyvoice.com/philadelphia-eagles-bud-light-statue-doug-pederson-lincoln-financial-field-nfl/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
