Eagles superfan Marybelle Alston, 88, formerly from Wayne, took to dancing on Twitter once again after the Eagle’s win over the Colts Sunday, writes Stephanie Farr for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

In an appropriate Philadelphia sports tie-in, she danced to the Phillie’s unofficial anthem, “Dancing on My Own”.  

Alston became a Twitter sensation last May when video of her dancing in her Eagles gear to Janet Jackson’s “All for You” went viral, attracting more than a million people, even evoking a response from Jackson, who wrote, “I luv it.”

This recent video dance has garnered more than 5,000 likes and 500 retweets so far.

The video, like the one in May, was posted by Alston’s daughter, Danita Alston.

”Mom slept through most of the game, woke up asking if we won. The rest is history – victory dance,” Danita Alston wrote.

Mother and daughter live now in Riverview, Fla. but continue to embrace Philly pro sports teams. Danita’s Shih Tzu dog is even named Eagle. 

Their “woman cave” has two Eagles rugs,  two Eagles footballs, a “Fly Eagles Fly” sign, an Eagles coaster, and a framed Eagles print. There’s also an Eagles love seat and sofa.
