No speech in Philadelphia would be complete without saying, "Go Eagles."

To wrap up his introduction of former Philadelphia Eagles running back Herb Lusk during the Festival of Families, actor Mark Wahlberg delighted the Philadelphia crowd with a shout-out to the hometown team.

That's just a great move by the Festival of Families host.

It's no secret that Wahlberg, a Massachusetts native, is a New England Patriots fan. However, he does have a connection to the Eagles. He played Vince Papale in the 2006 movie Invincible.
