Eagles Super Bowl Champions


Be sure to check out “Eagles Super Bowl Champions” a song written by our own UFCW Local 1360 Member Darryl Rivers from Ravitz Shop Rite. The song was written on January 23, just 12 days before the Eagles won the Super Bowl. The song was played in Ravitz Shoprite and PriceRite leading up to the Super Bowl. Darryl had full confidence in the Eagles and wanted to create a song that would not only commemorate the victory but also hype up the fans for many years!
