Iverson's like "CHARLOTTE?!?! They have a team??? Holy shit. Wait! Forget it! I'll stay! I'll stay. Jesus. Forget I said anything."
Let's check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer's article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte. A poster "Reality" weighs in:
You people all need to get a grip. It's the freaking SIXERS. This
team has no heart, no coach and no talent. Get used to it for the next
5 years because this isn't a quick fix.
I personally only watch the Sixers for two reasons.
For the outside chance that Hip Hop one day will break his ankle while
doing one of his trampoline dunks. Either that or the guy inside of the
costume has a heart attack and starts convulsing on the hardwood floor.
If I was the PR guy I'd have a halftime spectacular of blindfolding
that piece of trash mascot and making him run around the court trying
to dodge bear traps. A rapping, dancing, urban rabbit for a mascot ...
a big "Bravo!" to the marketing genius who thought up of that one.
When I overeat at dinner, I turn on the Sixers to get a glance of Dee
Lynam to instantaneously throw up any food in my body and pass out from
looking at that troll. I've never seen such a train wreck of a woman.
For the love of God ... comb your hair, put on some makeup to cover up
your pock marks on your face and stop wearing blouses that show off
your grandmom cleavage. If I had the choice, I'd rather make love to
Tyrone Hill ... and I'm a heterosexual male.
Thank the Lord for comment sections.
With the matchups for Saint Joseph's men's basketball's conference slate already set, the Hawks have now added an old northeast corridor rival to the nonconference portion of their schedule.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Monday afternoon that St. Joe's and St. John's will meet on Dec. 20 during of the seventh annual Hall of Fame Holiday Showcase at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Providence and Houston will play in the other contest of the two-game event.
“We are honored to be associated with the Basketball Hall of Fame, an organization that promotes all levels of the game," Saint Joseph’s head coach Phil Martelli said in a statement released Monday. "We're delighted for our players to have the opportunity to compete against the legendary St. John's program and are looking forward to an old-fashioned Philly vs. New York matchup.”
The two schools have played just once in the past 37 years—when the sides met at Hagan Arena in 2013, the Red Storm pulled out a narrow victory to advance to the second round of the NIT. But December's matchup will be the 58th all-time meeting between the programs.
Saint Joseph's last played at the Mohegan Sun Arena back in the 2015 Hall of Fame Showcase, losing to Florida before knocking off Old Dominion in the consolation game. The Hawks return nearly their entire roster for the 2017-18 season, including all five starters, led by the backcourt duo of Shavar Newkirk and Lamarr Kimble.
While things in the world of the Phillies are going about as poorly as anyone could have expected, Chase Utley reminded us over the weekend that he is still a bad man at the ripe old age of 38.
Check out this sick diving stop he made over the weekend during the Dodgers game against the Florida Marlins.
Just Chase being Chase.
Oh, and earlier in the weekend Utley is sprinting out of the dugout to get up in people's grills when Giancarlo Stanton even looks in his teammates' direction. Miss that guy. Always.
(Let's just ignore his numbers on the season (.205/.302/.289))
