Here's Video of Michael Young Telling Howard Eskin 'You Suck'

Philadelphia Phillies fans were lukewarm on the signing of third baseman Michael Young this offseason. Young has been an All-Star and strung together plenty of great seasons in Texas, but he's 36 this season and hasn't played much third base the past couple of years.

CSN Philly's John Gonzalez wrote today about Young having resided in Dallas, Texas for over a decade, which -- let's be honest -- can lead a person to some strange tendencies. How long did it take for a Philadelphian to ask him if he was a Cowboys fan, you may be wondering? He didn't even get passed the airport.

The convo started when 94WIP/FOX29 reporter Howard Eskin asked the very important question of whether or not he'll continue to be a Cowboys fan given his current 215 area code.

Before he ended Friday’s interview at Bright House Field, one reporter
(OK, fine, it was Howard Eskin) asked Young what he termed “an important
question.” Now that Young is with the Phillies, will he “give up being a
Cowboys fan?” Young’s reply was priceless.

“You suck,” he said to Eskin (jokingly).

Young should fit in just fine.

Michael Young, saying what many Philly fans have been thinking for decades.

And for the record, Young says he's not planning on ditching his Cowboys fandom. Which is fine. He needs to get used to getting booed playing in Philly.

Former Eagles QB Tim Tebow hits home run on first pitch in first pro at-bat

Former Eagles QB Tim Tebow hits home run on first pitch in first pro at-bat

Well, heck. Look at that.

Tim Tebow, former NFL quarterback prospect for many teams including the Philadelphia Eagles, hit a home run in his first at-bat as a professional baseball player.

And not only did he hit a home run in his first at-bat, it was on the FIRST PITCH he saw in a game for the Mets team in the Port St. Lucie instructional league in Florida.

I wonder if Phillies' reliever David Hernandez saw Tebow's dinger.

You think the Mets can call him up for the postseason or what?

TEBOW TIME! In his first live-action AB, Tim Tebow hits a solo HR to left-center.

First instructional league at-bat. First pitch. First HOME RUN. @TimTebow, everybody.

NFL Notes: Texans place J.J. Watt on IR; Dez Bryant misses practice

NFL Notes: Texans place J.J. Watt on IR; Dez Bryant misses practice

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans placed star defensive end J.J. Watt on injured reserve on Wednesday.

The move came one day after a person familiar with Watt's condition told The Associated Press he had re-injured his back and that the Texans expect him to be sidelined until at least December — and possibly the entire season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't discussed his injury.

Watt, who has won Defensive Player of the Year for the past two seasons, missed training camp and Houston's four preseason games after surgery in July to repair a herniated disk in his back. He started each of the team's three regular-season games and got hurt again Thursday against the Patriots.

The Texans signed veteran defensive end Antonio Smith to take his spot on the roster.

The team was still exploring the injury and it's unclear if it will require surgery.

It's a major blow for Houston, which selected Watt with the 11th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Watt has played 83 consecutive games for the Texans despite various injuries, including torn core muscles and a broken hand last season.

This was a tough offseason for Watt, who had surgery in January to repair five torn core muscles before going under the knife again in July to repair his back.

Watt, who led the NFL with 17 1/2 sacks last season, has 1 1/2 sacks this season to give him 76 for his career.

The 27-year-old is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and a four-time Pro Bowler. He's been a force since entering the league not only because of his pass-rushing prowess, but also because of his uncanny ability to swat down passes. He has 45 passes defended in his six-year career. He has forced 15 fumbles and recovered 13.

Cowboys: Dez Bryant (knee) misses practice
FRISCO, Texas — Dallas receiver Dez Bryant won't practice Wednesday after injuring his right knee in last week's win over Chicago.

Bryant injured the knee on his first catch early in the game but came back in the first quarter. He caught his first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 win.

Coach Jason Garrett said the team didn't have results of an MRI, and Bryant tweeted, "We'll find out today," to a fan who asked about his status.

Bryant missed seven games last year after breaking his foot in the opener. He also dealt with ankle injuries last season.

The Cowboys visit San Francisco on Sunday.
