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.
Stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Tombler admitted he’s taking a vacation in reverse of the usual kind for Lehigh Valley residents, who might fly to Hawaii in the winter (or wish they could). But when you live in the tropics and haven’t been home for Thanksgiving in a long time, the trip makes sense, the Freedom High grad said.
Tombler discovered Eagles tickets are available for $30 a pop or less, and he couldn’t resist rounding up relatives and old friends for a trip south to Lincoln Financial Field.
