Meet Foles the Goat From a New England Zoo
Yes, you read that right. A zoo in New England named a goat after the Eagles' Nick Foles. Why on Earth would a zoo in New England name a goat after Foles? A bet. Franklin Park Zoo in Boston made a bet last year with The Philadelphia Zoo before the Super Bowl.
The acronym GOAT (greatest of all time) has been used to describe both Nick Foles and The New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. The two zoos decided to make a friendly wager for Super Bowl LII. If the Eagles won, the New England zoo would name the next goat born at the zoo after Foles. If the Patriots won, The Philadelphia Zoo would name their next goat born after Brady.
The Franklin Park Zoo kept their word and welcomed Foles the goat back in May 2018.
The Philadelphia thanked the zoo graciously on Twitter.
