Get your hot dogs, get your cold beer, get your bargain-basement Black Friday ticket prices for Philadelphia Eagles games.

That’s what former Bethlehem resident and Navy diver Nolan Tombler found when he returned to the Lehigh Valley recently for his first Thanksgiving visit in years: The low-flying Birds are delivering low ticket prices for their remaining home games.
