No, this is not Chris Long or Lane Johnson. But the Eagles won the Super Bowl, and they've inspired Philly sports teams to embrace the underdog.
OK, technically not a member of the Penn Quakers basketball team that's in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 11 years (!). Still, the dog masks are back.
This time, this chill clarinet player in the Penn band.

Penn, a 16-seed in the Midwest Region, is facing the No. 1-seed Kansas right now. Chances are, the Quakers' NCAA tourney run will not be long.
But it's the year of the underdog and the dog masks brought good juju to the Super Bowl champion Eagles.
Maybe it'll bring luck to Penn.
