WARMINSTER, Pa. (CBS) – A couple of hundred senior citizens decked out in green and white attended a pep rally today at a retirement community in Warminster, in preparation for this weekend’s Eagles-Packers playoff game.

Swoop, the team mascot, joined Eagles cheerleaders in getting members of the crowd up and shaking their pom-poms.

Nancy Bulera, a resident of the Ann’s Choice community, cheered on her favorite team and later gave herself a good review.

“I think I did great,” she said.  “It’s a wonderful event.  There is a lot  spirit.  There are a lot of Eagles fans here.”

Richard Haddon, minister at the retirement community (right), won that one.

He says on game day, Sunday, he’ll go to church and pray for the Eagles before the game.

“Oh yeah, we have to pray for them, you know.  Go all the way!”
