  • Bud Light to Eagles: Philly Philly!

Johnson capitalized on the popularity of the dog masks worn by the Eagles players before the NFC Championship once he realized fans were scrambling to get them: He partnered with Oldies.com to sell the masks and have 65 percent of the proceeds go to Philadelphia schools.

Eagles fans could be celebrating a Super Bowl victory on the folks at Bud Light should the beer giant keep its promise to Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson.

It was just a few days ago when Lane took to Twitter and announced he would be selling dog masks and donating the majority of the money to fund Philadelphia area schools.

The Eagles now are massive underdogs entering Super Bowl LII, but many didn't expect them to get out of the NFC bracket and yet here they are.

The Eagles' 38-7 romp over the Minnesota Vikings sent the "underdog" Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl to face the New England Patriots in two weeks.


Low and behold, the Cowboys and Giants both stumbled, the Eagles ran through the NFC East and took the top spot in the NFC playoff field and, despite losing MVP-worthy Carson Wentz, have reached the Super Bowl.

Both Long and Johnson responded by telling the National Football League they should donate the proceeds from their shirt to Philadelphia schools as well.

He made that vow back in August, according to a report from ESPN.

So far, Long and Johnson's tweets have not been answered by the Official NFL Shop account.

Johnson's shirts sold for just $19. Johnson responded at the time, tacking on the necessary clinking-beer-mugs emoji at the end.
