99-Year-Old Eagles Fan Celebrates the Team's First Super Bowl Win

Internet, meet the man who is quite possibly the oldest fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, Phil Basser (now affectionately known as Philadelphia Phil, who has lived in the city since 1918). 

Phil has followed the team ever since they played their first game in 1933, and once remarked that if he lived to be 100, he might see them win a Super Bowl. 


Well, last night he did see the Eagles win the Super Bowl, as they defeated the New England Patriots 41-33. The best part? Basser literally turns 100 next month


Are we the only ones getting kinda misty-eyed right now?
