LF Driscoll is not taking any chances when it comes to pride in Philadelphia and our sports teams!

From Philly.com:

Ironworkers at the new Comcast tower rushed the final steel beams into place over the last two weeks, fearing that a new “Curse of Billy Penn,” thought to have doomed Philly sports teams for decades, could sack the 10-1 Eagles before the Super Bowl, construction supervisors say.

So on Monday, about 1,100 feet above JFK Boulevard, they affixed a tiny Billy Penn statue (and a Christmas tree) to the highest steel beam, placing Billy Penn in his rightful place overlooking the city from the tallest vantage point.

Buy the wings and beer! Plan the Super Bowl party!

“They did not want to take the chance and wait for the jinx,” Mike Delaney, executive vice president at LF Driscoll, the construction manager for the new Comcast tower, said of the ironworker crews who insisted on moving up the construction schedule to get Billy Penn in place.
