Matthew McConaughey Takes Out Full-Page Newspaper Ad for Nick Foles

Nick Foles is probably going to want make sure he gets his hands on a Sunday copy of the Austin American-Statesman, and that's because there's a big surprise in there for him.

"From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles", the ad reads before the sign off: "Just keep livin, Matthew McConaughey".

Six days after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, the New England Patriots fell victim to a classic online prank.

While McConaughey is reportedly an uber-Red Skins fan [not Cowboy's fan], he clearly knows where his loyalty lies: the great state of Texas.

The connection with Foles is that the Eagles quarterback is from Austin, which is where McConaughey now lives.

Mourinho hoodoo continues as Newcastle stuns Man United 1-0
United are now 16 points behind leaders Manchester United after their second defeat in their last three league games. Pogba lasted 66 minutes before being substituted, seconds after Matt Ritchie put Newcastle ahead.


The award-winning actor took out a full-page ad in the Austin American-Statesman to let acknowledge Foles for his accomplishment.

Foles might actually be more popular than even McConaughey right now in Austin.

In the days that have followed, Foles has been the recipient of several honors that include having February 9 declared as "Nick Foles Day" by the mayor of Austin, Texas.

In fairness, Foles did in a sense at least own the Patriots defense for a few hours last Sunday, having passed for 373 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' Super Bowl win.
