Does anyone love The Philadelphia Eagles more than Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper? No. Bradley loves them the most. And because he loves them the most, he is currently watching them play in the Super Bowl in the box of the Eagles owner. And at the Super Bowl, they scored some points (or some yards or something, I’m one of those people who doesn’t know about sports but will patiently listen to you explain them if you buy me dinner), and Bradley was like, so excited. How excited? Very, very excited.

Now, this being a picture and all, we can’t hear exactly what Cooper is shouting, but judging from his expression it’s something along the lines of “OH YEAH EAGLES THAT’S HOW WE DO IT YOU ARE THE BEST AND STRONGEST BOYS IN THE WHOLE WORLD AND I AM PROUD OF YOU FOR PLAYING YOUR HARDEST WOOP WOOP WHUT WHUT GIT ER DONE ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT.”

Astute cinephiles may remember that Cooper’s character in Silver Linings Playbook, the hit romantic dramedy in which he and Jennifer Lawrence attempt to dance their mental health problems away, was also a big Eagles fan. To be honest I didn’t totally understand the stakes of that movie but, like I said, I’ll patiently listen to you explain it if you buy me dinner.

This image is just begging to become a Wholesome Meme. See a friend ace a test? Post this image to show them how proud you are. A senator passes an important piece of legislation? Tweet this image to encourage them to keep up the good work. Bradley Cooper wins an award? The Eagles all recreate this image to congratulate him. Because love is a two way street.

If his favorite team wins the big game, it’ll be a great start to the year for Cooper, whose directorial debut, a remake of A Star Is Born starring himself and Lady Gaga, premieres in the Fall.
