The Philadelphia Eagles will win Sunday and Jim Fritzsche’s attention between 6-10 p.m. will be riveted on Super Bowl LII.

“I will not be doing any real estate from 6 PM til 10 PM during the Super Bowl. Any other time, ABSOLUTELY,” Fritzsche messaged via email. He is a broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Services, C. Dan Joyner, Realtors. He lives in Greer.

Fritzsche was right as Philadelphia beat New England, 41-33, in a thriller. 

Fritzsche was drafted by the Eagles out of Purdue University and played one season with the Eagles at offensive tackle before injury ended his NFL career.

His passion and loyalty to the Eagles remain. Fritzsche said the Eagles will win based on his theory. “Usually I determine who has the best offensive line wins. The Eagles have a good, strong offensive line,” Fritzsche said.

“There’s nothing like Philly fans,” Fritzsche said. He will be a fan with a plan Sunday. “I’ve got forty cheese steak sandwiches, some friends are bringing the wings and potato salad. I’m pretty pumped.”

Fritzsche, whose business card has his height – 6-8 – on the back, has been back to Philadelphia for players' reunions. “That building (U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis) will be on fire (with Eagles fans),” he said.

Philadelphia fans are legend and Fritzsche shared an amusing incident of their fanaticism.

“One year I took my nephew, from West Virginia, to Philly for a game and on the way we talked about the Philadelphia fans,” he said. “On this occasion, before the start of the game, a fan ran the length of the field tossing something into the air. Nobody knew if it was a dangerous chemical or what it was. It looked like security wasn’t sure what was going on either, not being aggressive in getting to him.

“The next day I read where the man was tossing ashes, the remains of his father, on the field,” Fritzsche said with a laugh.

And just in case the Eagles don't cash in and beat the Patriots Sunday, "There's always next year," Fritzsche said. "The Eagles are loaded and have two good quarterbacks."
