Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares", the opening track to his 2012 album of the same name, returned to prominence in January when it was adopted by the Philadelphia Eagles as a de facto anthem for the team's Super Bowl championship aspirations.

Jim Mulhern's reaction to the surprise of a lifetime went viral in the days leading up to the big game, and his enthusiasm didn't wane as he took in the big game.

When asked what message he would send to the President he further clarified his stance.

Comic, actor and Philadelphia Eagles fan dropped an accidental f-bomb on the NFL Network shortly after on Sunday night.

"Nah, I personally do not anticipate attending", Jenkins told CNN's "New Day".

Torrey Smith: Even before the Eagles won the Super Bowl, the wide receiver had already made it clear that he wouldn't visit the White House, citing his opposition to Trump.

Super Bowl LII likely coldest on record
A White House official told CNN that Trump has opted out of a pre-Super Bowl interview with NBC , which is televising the game. Sheila E. has a strong connection to Minneapolis because of her ties to Prince, calling the city "my second home".

LeGarrette Blount: The Eagles running back, who played for the Patriots last season, also skipped last year's White House visit.

Defensive end Chris Long, who boycotted last year's White House visit with the Patriots, said he plans to sit out this year as well. I'm about creating positive changes in the communities I come from, whether it be Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Louisiana or this entire country. In the September 12 meetings, the players hoped to better understand the complexities of the criminal justice system. "We're not protesting the anthem".

Mr Trump then went on to release a statement on Sunday, prior to the Super Bowl, reminding players why they stand for the national anthem. "They call it the anthem protest", he said, according to NJ.com.

Trump a year ago ignited controversy when he targeted players for kneeling during the national anthem. "If you don't see why you need allies for people that are fighting for equality right now, I don't think you'll ever see it", Long said in August. "It's a protest during the anthem".

"My father, when he dies, is going to be buried with an American flag draped around his casket, being that he served in the Army".
