Robert Trivisonno sat in the Jetro Parking lot next to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia with a smile on his face last Sunday.
Trivisonno had just seen his favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles, become the first team in NFL history to win each of its first two games by one point. It was also the Eagles' second come-from-behind victory of the season, 24-23 over the Baltimore Ravens.
Trivisonno, a consultant for Resort Ownership Resolutions in West Atlantic City, goes to all the games.
But he didn't always. Trivisonno grew up in New York City as a Giants fan, but when he moved to Atlantic City at 25, he began attending Eagles games because of the shorter distance.
He's happy with that choice to switch teams.
"The season's great - 2-0 so far," the 51-year old from the Bargaintown section of Egg Harbor Township said. "They came back last week, came back this week. Now we know under four minutes they can come back for a win."
His favorite Eagle is running back LeSean McCoy. "He catches the ball, he can run the ball, he can go out in the formation, he seems to be a good blocker and we always seem to get penalties when he's on the run," he said.
Trivisonno says the Eagles will carry their momentum into Glendale, Ariz., today at 4:05 p.m. He also looks forward to facing former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, who surprisingly led the Cardinals to a 20-18 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Week 2.
"We want to play against (Kolb) because we know him," Trivisonno said. "(The Patriots) missed a field goal at the end, but it seems to be once the Eagles come into town, we'll rattle (Kolb) with our defense."
"(After the game) we'll be 3-0 to start the season, come back here and play the (New York) Giants," he added. "But to win this week they are going to have to give the ball to McCoy a little more, run the ball a little bit more and spread the ball around and not pass as much."
Trivisonno's prediction for today- Eagles 28-14.
