The sign is the brainchild of Gina Lewis, the “self-proclaimed biggest Eagles fan alive” and a Massachusetts resident.
Lewis says she bet a coworker that if she could receive 4,100 likes and 3,300 retweets of a Twitter post depicting Tom Brady fumbling the ball that he would have to pay for an Eagles billboard in Patriots Nation.READ MORE: Missing Woman Dolly Thapa Found Safe
Lewis says her tweet received that and more and her co-worker ponied up $500. The rest of the money came from a GoFundMe page.
“I didn’t think that we wouldn’t win the bet because I know how strong Eagles nation is,” Lewis said.
The billboard will be displayed outside Gillette Stadium for one month.MORE NEWS: Baker, Sununu Join Other Republican Governors In Demanding Border Security Meeting With Biden
Lewis says the GoFundMe page is continuing to raise up to $10,000 to help the artist who designed the sign pay for the piece, with the rest of the proceeds going to the Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation.
