Eagles’ Chris Maragos: Minnesota restaurants refusing service

As the Philadelphia Eagles are preparing to face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, Minnesota Vikings fans are making their presence felt. Eagles safety Chris Maragos tweeted Friday that he’s been told by three restaurants in Minneapolis that they can’t reserve a table for him and his teammates.

Not surprisingly, he attributes this to Vikings fans getting some revenge.

Teammate Torrey Smith had an idea about how to get around this, however. And it has some merit.


That Minnesota fans might be bitter is understandable. After all, they were seriously pumped heading into the NFC Championship Game, and their team had a chance to become the first in NFL history to compete in a Super Bowl at their home stadium.

Then the Eagles ruined all that by stomping all over those dreams with a 38-7 blowout win to get to the title game.

Next time, Maragos might consider using a pseudonym, instead.
