The Eagles are looking for their ninth win, and Monday’s game means another on-field showdown. Super fans like Shirley Dash will be along for the ride.
“Monday night games it’s a long day,” Dash said. “You have to work, prepare for tonight’s game.”
Around Philadelphia, Dash is known as “EagleShirley.”
Dash said Bird Nation is special and with so much negative attention brought to the city, sports is a connector.
Dash said she never missed a game, rather it’s in person or watching from her home with loved ones. As a little girl from North Philadelphia, her brother taught her about sports and to see her brand build is a proud moment.
In her spare time, she runs Football 101 Do’s and Don’ts — a series of classes that teach women about football and how they can also be part of the game.
Besides meeting countless fans, Dash has made appearances in Eagles commercials and a 2019 documentary, “Maybe Next This Year.”
Before Dash left our studio, she had one word for the Eagles, “WIN” and “Don’t get hurt.”
