After victories by the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots in the conference championship games, the story revolving around the two quarterbacks playing in Super Bowl 52 couldn't be more different.
It didn't take long for the video, posted to Facebook by Parks' father on Tuesday night, to go viral.
She has two tickets for the big game in Minneapolis. "Now the issue is we've got to find a flight, come up with cash, come up with a hotel". I want the Eagles to win so bad.
Haley Parks, a Rutgers University junior who initially thought she missed the Super Bowl while being sedated during the 30-minute procedure, is headed to Minnesota to see her beloved Birds take on the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Her own devotion to the team was clear in a video made by her mother after Haley's wisdom teeth were removed. "But just play for one another, have fun and enjoy it".
