Philadelphia Eagles fans celebrated in expected fashion during their team’s Super Bowl win, ranging from harmless fun to criminal mischief as they took to the city’s streets.

But few reactions could compare to that of one fan who ran face-first into a subway pillar on his way to the Eagles’ NFC Championship game win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Yahoo Sports’ Ron Schiltz caught up with our hero ahead of Thursday’s NFL opener between the Eagles and Atlanta Falcons. Thankfully, he appears to be just fine and ready to give his all for the Eagles again this season.
