PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A South Philadelphia school had a surprise guest show up on its campus on Tuesday.
Saint Pio Catholic Regional School in South Philadelphia gave a huge welcome for Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount, before he and the Birds make their way to Minnesota.
He was taking pictures and answering questions from some mini-sized fans. And some were tougher than a post-game presser.
“Do you know the Patriots’ playbook?” a student said.
“No! I wish,” replied Blount.
“What does it feel like playing your former team?” another student said.
“That’s a great question. At first, a lot of emotion but I got over that pretty quickly, now it’s time to play ball,” Blount said.
The students now wait for Blount and his Eagles teammates to bring a Super Bowl title to a city that has never had one.
