Philadelphia Eagles play-by-play announcer Merrill Reese decided to share a memory from last season involving running back, LeGarrette Blount.

It’s Super Bowl week for the NFL, and there isn’t much going on in the city of Philadelphia this time around. As I’ve seen all over the internet as of late, many are firing up their Blue Ray players, and checking their DVR’s to see if they still have Super Bowl LII on there ready to be watched. This Sunday, the New England Patriots will make their return to the Super Bowl, but they won’t have the same opponent as last year (the Philadelphia Eagles, who won it all).

So as many are dreading the fact that the Eagles won’t be on footballs biggest stage this season, they can’t help but reminisce about last season. To this day, we keep revisiting many of last year’s clips provided by the NFL media, and also we keep hearing about stories from players and coaches. This time around though, longtime Philadelphia Eagles announcer Merrill Reese decided to share a quick story with the Eagles fan base, which involved former Eagles running back, LeGarrette Blount.

A cool moment shared by the voice of the Eagles

Last season, while the Eagles were preparing for Super Bowl LII in Minnesota, Merrill Reese was sporting his NFC Championship ring from the 2004 season. Obviously, we all know how the following game went for the Eagles as they fell short of beating the Patriots in Jacksonville.

But still, to that day that’s really all Eagles fans had to be excited about in recent times. Thankfully, Blount and his teammates stuck by that winner’s mentality and brought a Lombardi trophy to Philly. Now, Merrill and the rest of the staff and players from the 2017 season have a Super Bowl ring to rock throughout this week as they can remember the good times. Let’s just hope that Merrill has a few more coming his way in the upcoming years.
