247:Mark Wahlberg is a New England Patriots fan, but has plenty of ties to the Philadelphia Eagles after playing Vince Papale in the 2006 movie “Invincible.”
Wahlberg became a supporter of the Eagles after shooting multiple movies in Philadelphia and filming “Invincible,” but he’s going with his hometown Patriots in the Super Bowl.
However, he won’t be upset if the Patriots fall to the Eagles.

Diehard Patriots fan Mark Wahlberg wouldnt mind if Eagles win Super Bowl “I think the Patriots win by 17. But if the Eagles win, I am telling you I would be fine. If it was anybody else I would be devastated” “How excited I am that the Eagles are in the Super Bowl, having played Vince Papale, having played an Eagle, having become an honorary Philadelphian, been welcomed by the Philadelphia fans as one of their own. I have made 5 movies in Philadelphia and I predicted the Eagles would make it to the Super Bowl. It is my Patriots and Eagles and I couldnt be happier. I am very excited. It is win-win” #flyeaglesfly #eagles #superbowl From @richeisen show
If Marky Mark’s Patriot fan card wasn’t already removed, that sh*t is GONE now. This is completely clear, the guy was never a Patriots fan, he’s a fan of himself. “Go Eagles because I shot movies in philly” is basically what he’s saying. I used to wear a shirt that had a bald eagle on it, according to Mark that means I should be tweeting #FlyEaglesFly. The fact that this guy is somehow become a mouthpiece for Boston fans is physically revolting.
In case you didn’t know, Wahlberg dipped at halftime of last year’s super bowl. To top it off, he scapegoated his son for the reason behind leaving. Classic blame the kid move. He said the kid was sick, then apparently churning out f-bombs and making a scene. Two different stories, which one is true? Probably neither. Wahlberg is just a walking cop-out who uses the Patriots fan base to grow his notoriety in acting.
Everyone who’s a real Pats fan never turns that game off, much less leave the actual stadium. Yeah, being down 28-3 was downright gut wrenching and gave me a borderline panic attack. But, there’s guarantees we all have in life – death, taxes, Patriots coming back down double digits in the 4th. USA Today using “die hard patriots fan” in the headline describing Wahlberg should be considered slander towards New England.
Fine with the Eagles winning? The rain of boo’s from Gillette when he eventually crawls back will be epic.
