Let’s get caught up with the Philadelphia Eagles as we look at some recent birthdays, JJ Arcega-Whiteside’s graduation and a nice Father’s Day tribute.
Imagine attending one of the most prestigious universities in our great country, being drafted to the team that plays in the city that served as its’ first capital, and being in a position to learn from two of the great receivers in the NFL. That’s exactly the position that JJ Arcega-Whiteside of the Philadelphia Eagles is in.
Oh, and did you hear that he graduated from Stanford?
Take a look:
Nice job JJ! Nice job! At 22 years young, this young man has already accomplished more than many people twice his age can claim to doing. We’ll see how things go on the field in his rookie campaign. From that, we move on to a few birthdays.
Let’s help a couple of Birds celebrate another year of life.
The middle of June means there are cookouts, family vacations, graduations, and trips to the beach. The middle of June means there are some birthdays to celebrate in the Eagles family as well.
Despite the fact that Wikipedia tells us his birthday is actually on Christmas, the Eagles offered some birthday salutations on June 15th. We’ll go with what they say.
Also, while we’re all feeling festive, we can cook up a few birthday cakes for ‘Big V’. One might not do the trick for the big fella. Halapoulivaati Vaitai turned 26 on the 16th.
Let’s take a moment to talk about Fathers Day.
And yes, we’re still celebrating Fathers Day, just like we’re still celebrating Mothers Day.
For fathers, it’s different. Theirs is a job that’s sometimes thankless. They work long hours. Sometimes, they pick up an additional shift or a part-time job. They do so all in the name of making life better for their families.
They do so knowing that they’re not always given the same level of thanks. Moms get the cool songs like ‘Dear Mama’ by Tupac and ‘A Song for Mama’ by Boyz II Men (there’s a Philly reference for you). Dads get stuff like ‘Papa Was A Rolling Stone’, but here’s what we know.
Anyone who has their father in their life knows the value of a good one, and on Sunday, the Eagles showed all fathers love with a special tribute. You have to give this one a look:
That one may be a tad late, but who cares? Fathers day should be every day. So should Mothers Day. No one can deny that one if you think about it. Happy belated Fathers Day to everyone.
