Fan Who Ran Into Subway Pole Gets Big Surprise From the Eagles

Here's a story that has a happy ending.

Remember the guy who ran into the pole in the infamous viral video from before the NFC Championship Game? Of course you do. Well, things have turned out alright for Jigar Desai because he's going to see his favorite football team play in London ... for free.

"From ‘mind the pillars' to ‘Mind the Gap'… London, here we come!" Desai told the Associated Press.

Due to the wildly popular viral nature of the video, the NFL reached out to Desai and got him involved with a short film where he returns to the scene of the crime, talks about his love for the Eagles, makes peace with the pillar he is famous for colliding with and is awarded free tickets to see the Eagles play in London from Swoop and the cheerleaders.
