Last month our SUPER BOWL CHAMPION EAGLES started Training Camp, with hopes high for a 2nd Championship campaign.  So this seems the perfect time to look back at an Eagle who, long before there was a Super Bowl, helped lead our Birds to victory in the 1960 NFL Championship Game played at Franklin Field.  

Drafted by the Eagles in 1957, Tommy played a major role in that game, contributing to the take down of Vince Lombardi's seemingly invince-ible Packers. He is now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame  -- and for only a few weeks The Media Theatre will give you a rare and personal look at the pivotal role sports journalist, Ray Didinger played in his career.

It is clear that award-winning writer, Ray Didinger has written yet another great sports story - and it comes to life at the Media Theatre every Wednesday and Sunday from August 8th through August 26th.

It is an autobiographic that recounts a seminal time in Ray Didinger’s life as he helps his life-long hero, Tommy McDonald reach his goal of getting into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
