Eagles superfans not too tired to keep celebrating

Several busloads headed to parade in Philly

AMITY TWP., Pa. - Being a Philadelphia Eagles superfan can be exhausting.

"I'm tired," said Brent Estock of Muhlenberg Township.

Especially after a night like Sunday.

"I couldn't sleep anyway, as tired as I was. I watched every post-game show, everything I could," said Barry "The Hatchet" Vagnoni of Exeter Township.

Watching everything, and watching everything again.

"I'm just sitting over there in my barroom. I'm watching the game again," Estock said.

If for no other reason than to make sure it really happened.

"You're like pinching yourself this morning: Did we actually win the game yesterday?" Estock said.

Estock, known for his 700-level Veterans Stadium recreation in Muhlenberg Township, and Vagnoni, overseer of the Eagles shrine known as "The Locker Room" in Exeter Township, both threw epic Super Bowl parties.

"When they said the Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions, I can't describe what it was like in here," Vagnoni said.

"We were packed here yesterday," Estock said. "Everybody that was here was having a blast."

But there's still one more party left.

"Well over 200 folks that are going with us down to the parade on Thursday," said Christa McCusker, with Klein Transportation.

Klein Transportation in Amity Township already has four buses filled for the parade, tentatively set for 11 a.m., starting at the sports complex and ending at the Rocky steps.

"Overnight, we're looking at inventory to see if we can add a fifth bus," McCusker said.

Kutztown-based Bieber Transportation Group is adding buses to its regular runs Thursday, including #303 and #306 to help accommodate fans. Bieber officials said they will cancel the #304 and #305 runs because of the timing of the parade.

"Hatchet Transportation" also has plans in the works.

"We're working on getting a bus or two. All 'The Locker Room' gang, they want to go down," Vagnoni said.
