But his daughter stole the Super Bowl limelight in this wonderful picture.

So what does Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles know about protecting his daughter’s ears that most parents and most pediatricians don’t know?

He knows that noise is bad for children’s ears, causing auditory damage including hearing loss.

Football stadiums are among the noisiest places in the U.S., with the noise record exceeding allowable occupational exposure levels, so Nick Foles absolutely did the right thing.

We hope all parents will follow his example.
