PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Even a drenching downpour couldn’t dampen the moment for one die-hard Eagles fan.

Matt Gordon flew in from Oregon Wednesday morning. The South Jersey native has lived there for 20 years but he found his way back home to the iconic Art Museum steps, in town to celebrate the Eagles’ historic Super Bowl win.

“I left central Oregon last night at 8 p.m., flew overnight, got here this morning,” said Gordon. “I was lucky enough to find a hotel.”

Gordon has followed the team throughout the season.
