Let the disrespect begin.
Ahead of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia between the 49ers and Eagles, a bold Niners fan decided take a team shirt and put it on the iconic Rocky Balboa statue that sits at the bottom in the heart of downtown Philadelphia:
The nearly 9-foot-tall statue was commissioned in 1980 by Sylvester Stallone, who has played Rocky in nine films. The statue was a prop in “Rocky III,” which was released in 1982. When production on the movie was finished, Stallone donated the statue to the city.
Can’t wait for Sunday!
