Before the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, Zoo New England made a bet with the Philadelphia Zoo. If the Eagles won, then Zoo New England would have to name one of its baby goats after Nick Foles.
“Playing off the whole goat moniker, we have adorable goats here, the New England zoo has adorable goats there,” said Dana Lombardo, with the Philadelphia Zoo, per CBS 3 in Philadelphia. “Both of us are expecting births in the next few months, and so we just though it was natural and how adorable it would it be to have a goat named Foles at the New England zoo.”
A few months later, that bet has been paid in full.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen bets like this. The year before after New England beat Atlanta, Zoo Atlanta named a cockroach Tom Brady.
