PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A trio of Philadelphia Eagles and a group of cheerleaders descended on Magee Rehab Monday afternoon to light up the fans for playoff football at the Linc.
There were lots of smiles, handshakes and photos, too, as linebacker Najee Good, defensive tackle Bennie Logan, and linebacker Emmanuel Acho, walked into a second-floor gathering room decked out in Eagles green.
Pam Williams, of Wynnfield, is a Magee patient and big Eagles fan.
“I think it’s beautiful that they took out the time today of all days to come down here and spend with us. Even if it’s just an hour, two hours, whatever. I really appreciate it,” Williams said.READ MORE: PPA Adding Patrols To Monitor Illegally Parked Cars In Bike Lanes Amid Growing Number Of Bicyclists Killed In Philly
Amanda Littman is a Magee speech therapist.
“It’s fantastic. I think it brings a lot of morale to the hospital, especially at this time of year,” Littman said.
Eagles cheerleader Mandi Moffa says sharing the joy of the team’s success with Magee patients means a lot.
“We’re actually all still wrapping our heads the fact that we’re going to the playoffs this week. We’re here, we’re pumped up, we’re so excited and we’re just so happy to have this time right now,” Moffa said.MORE NEWS: Dirt Bike Rider Wanted In Hit-And-Run That Left Teenager Dead, Philadelphia Police Say
