DeVonta Smith isnt from Philadelphia but he is officially a Philadelphia’n. Thanks to The Athletic for this training camp content, we know that celebrities truly ARE “just like us.” Because DeVonta Smith has an addiction….to Wawa.

A lot to unpack in this Bo Wulf 240 characters. First thing that jumps out is the “eats a sub.” I dont know if this was a direct quote from Smith, but if this was Wulf then thats a bad job. We dont eat “subs” in Philly. We eat hoagies. So someone advise Bo, and DeVonta to this error.

The second thing is the fact that Smith shares an addiction that many (myself included) have. Sometimes I find myself in a Wawa parking lot not really sure how I got there. But I may as well go in right? Wawa is our little slice of heaven in the area. Dont listen to the haters! Until you are OUTSIDE of Wawa country, you dont truly know how lucky we are. DeVonta knows. Hes from Louisiana. So the hipster from Fishtown whos sipping his IPA telling you “its not that great” is just plain wrong.

So next time you walk into a Wawa look around, because you may just see a Philadelphia Eagle waiting for his hoagie.
