He did everything, but drop a “jawn” to try and convince us.

But shout out to him for being so cool about some good-natured shit talk. So I gotta ask, “Is Mark Wahlberg an honorary Philadelphian?” I know the hoagie mouths will immediately say, “No fucking way. He’s from Boston. Fuck him and fuck Tom Brady!” But he did make one of the best Disney movies of all time about the greatest Eagles underdog. Invincible is a must-watch every time it’s on, no matter what part of the movie. It’s given us one of the best Eagles fan videos ever:

There was a Wahlburgers in Northern Liberties for a second and he did mention before Super Bowl 52 that he didn’t mind if the Eagles beat the Pats.

I’d like to believe he also has this hilariously giant Sixers jersey somewhere in his mansion:

While he claims he would’ve stopped 9/11 if he was on one of those planes:

If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’ 

If that’s not some shit a Philly guy would say I don’t know what is.

Mark Wahlberg: Confirmed Philly guy.
