Phillies fans are going to love Hans Crouse for this Nick Foles/Tom Brady tweet
Newest Philadelphia Phillies pitching prospect Hans Crouse is supposed to be quite the character.
How quirky, you may ask? Well, this is his wiggle:
Hopes are high for Crouse, who was recently touted as the Rangers’ closer of the future by experts at MLB.com.
He’s currently working his way through the minors as a starter, though, and had a 3.35 ERA in 13 starts for Double-A Frisco before the trade. His numbers are solid: only 27 hits and 19 walks allowed with 54 strikeouts across 51 innings this season.
It’s hard to tell where exactly Crouse’s sports fandoms lie; he’s tweeted about the Red Sox a lot, Shohei Ohtani (who isn’t obsessed?), golf, LeBron, and Sam Darnold, to name a few.
But Philadelphia sports fans are going to love this tweet from last year. On October 8, the Chicago Bears beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-19. Former Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles, who brought Philly its first Super Bowl back in February 2018, was the hero in this game, too.
Foles was the Eagles’ backup QB, but had to step up when Carson Wentz got hurt. He led the Eagles to their third Super Bowl, but this time, they won.
Fast-forward to October 8, 2020, and Foles managed to outduel Brady once again. With barely a minute remaining, Cairo Santos’ field goal put the Bears ahead for good.
As with the Super Bowl, Brady left the field without shaking Foles’ hand.
Obviously, Foles wasn’t representing Philly in the October game that inspired Crouse’s tweet, but Philadelphia sports fans will never forget the guy who brought them their first championship.
And they’re going to love Crouse for already being on their wavelength.
