America's Flagship Goes Green: SS United States Lights Up for Philadelphia Eagles

Excitement was at an all-time high in Philadelphia on February 4th as the Philadelphia Eagles faced the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, fighting for their first-ever Super Bowl title.

In honor of the city that has welcomed her for the past 20 years, the SS United States lit up Eagles green — and she'll be going green again on Wednesday night to celebrate their historic win!
