Andy Reid Says Sons Decisions Didn't Affect the Eagles Football Team

Andy Reid Says Sons Decisions Didn't Affect the Eagles Football Team

With the news that Andy Reid’s son Garrett was in possession
of steroids at the time of his death, it’s tempting to leap to conclusions. In
a statement through the Philadelphia Eagles, the head coach attempted to squash
such an association.

"As you all know, my son Garrett battled addiction for
many years. While there were some victories along the way, it ultimately was a
battle that he lost and that cost him his life. Our family feels the pain of
that loss every day.

"Today’s report saddens me greatly, but only confirms the troubles Garrett
encountered in the final years of his life. As parents, we were encouraged by
his apparent progress but, like many addicts, he was able to conceal the signs
of relapse.

"Jeffrey Lurie, the Eagles organization and the people of Philadelphia
have been remarkably supportive of my family throughout our ordeal. I am
confident that my son’s decisions did not affect our football team in any way.
I cannot apologize enough for any adverse appearances that my son's actions may
have for an organization and a community that has been nothing but supportive
of our family."

In other words, it is not believed at this time that there was any connection to the steroid supply found in Garrett's dorm at Lehigh University -- site of Eagles training camp -- and the team's players. It's worth noting nobody has tested positive for a PED, either. However, no definitive word on who they were for.

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
