Boston Zoo Names Baby Goat After Eagles’ Nick Foles, Settles Super Bowl Bet

Nick Foles’ legacy in Boston will be secure for years to come.

The Franklin Park Zoo announced Tuesday it has named a newborn baby goat “Foles” in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback. The Boston zoo named the baby goat for Foles to settle a Super Bowl LII bet it made with the Philadelphia Zoo.

Foles the quarterback led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots on Feb. 5 to claim their first-ever Super Bowl victory.

The presence of Foles the goat at Boston’s largest zoo will serve as yet another reminder of the Eagles’ upset win. It also prevents the Philly Zoo from having to name its next born goat “Brady,” after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Tough break, indeed.
