Best Tweets from Super Bowl 52 (2018)
There’s something about big, talked-about events like the Super Bowl and The Oscars that bring out the best tweets. Here were our favorites.
1.) Minneapolis Mayor’s Jacob Frey’s Welcoming Message
Mayor Jacob Frey would like to extend a warm welcome to Minneapolis…

2.) Trust in Your Players
In fairness to Coach Belichick, we don’t have a good handle as to why Malcolm Butler was benched for the big game. There may have been justifiable reasons.
Doug Pederson put a lot of trust into his back-up QB. I suppose that Pederson’s role as a back-up quarterback during most of his playing career may have helped him with that decision.
With the gutsy “Philly Special” call, Pederson went against 95% of his coaching fraternity by making a very aggressive call at a critical point in the game. It’s the type of call most NFL coaches wouldn’t make in a regular season game. Pederson did it in a Super Bowl.
One coach benched the guy who made arguably the greatest defensive play in #SuperBowl history. The other coach had an undrafted backup RB toss the ball to an undrafted backup TE, who threw a TD pass to a backup QB on 4th-and-goal. The 1st coach was considered a genius. #Eagles

3.) The Real Nick Foles
Nick Foles made a statement in the NFC Championship game against the Vikings. He made an even bigger statement in the Super Bowl. Talking about hitting tight windows with passes. This guy was on fire! He puts the “man” in “Next man up.” Saint Nick made another visit for Philly fans.

4.) Who wore it best?
This is funny – especially for Apple computer owners.
who wore it better: justin timberlake or mac os sierra? pic.twitter.com/F0J6heUkAr

5.) JT’s Outfit was Ripe for Parody
I think Bob Ross could knock off Justin Timberlake’s outfit in about the same amount of time it would take Philly to march down the field from their own 25 yard line and score a touchdown.

6.) Did You Know Prince is from Minneapolis?
Minnesotans are more than a little proud of the fact that Prince is from Minnesota. What gave it away? Oh, by the way, Bob Dylan is from here, too.
I thought JT’s homage to #Prince was done respectfully! No way to please everyone but this lighting up of his symbol was just the coolest! 💜 #PepsiHalftime #SuperBowlLII #Prince4Ever pic.twitter.com/LhTJmpmLCS

7.) The Best Super Bowl Commercial 2018
Like his brother Peyton Manning, Eli has this whole commercial thing down. I can’t tell you why; but they know how to get a laugh.

8.) Empire State Building is Flying like an Eagle
Okay, this is not going to make Giants and Jets fans happy. Empire State Building, you have some ‘plaining to do to your local football fans. Note: from Minneapolis, we forgive you.
#FlyEaglesFly–straight to the top of the #EmpireStateBuilding! We’re celebrating the @Eagles #SuperBowlLII victory with lights sparkling in the team’s colors for 30 minutes, then static lights until 2AM! pic.twitter.com/NefPllG0hI

9.) Fly Eagles Fly
It was a long time coming.

10.) Lord’s Prayer
Eagles’ players and coaches seemed like great people. Foles and Pederson, who garnered most of the air time, are class acts. Congrats!

11.) Congrats From Outer Space
A bird’s eye view of the city of Philadelphia with congratulations from the Space Station. Philly fans understand what “feeling out of this world” is like.

12.) The Gates
The gates of Philadelphia’s City Hall. Yes, that’s a keg on its way up. pic.twitter.com/JSANa3Wodw

13.) Okay, Tom Brady didn’t write this
Brady throws for 500 yards and loses. That’s gotta be tough; but Brady handled it all with good sportsmanship. Plus, he does have a few rings to fall back on.
“Id like to congratulate the Eagles & their fans. Great game, unfortunately we came out on the losing end. I’d like to think we’ll get another shot at the Eagles, but this league can be tough. In next year’s Super Bowl, we’ll probably play someone else”#SuperBowlLII
