That Mike Schmidt Nike Mustache T-Shirt You Have Is Now Totally Out of Style

That sweet Nike t-shirt you have featuring the silhouette of Michael Jack Schmidt's sweet hair and mustache is now totally outdated. Delco Times photographer Eric Hartline captured the above image of Schmidty down in Clearwater, Florida today and it clearly shows that the mustache is gone. The photo reminded us of that one time we asked the Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman about his 'stache and some of the other great facial hair in today's game.

From our interview with Mike Schmidt back in 2011:

Okay then. Have you seen the Nike t-shirt that features the
outline of your mustache on the powdered blue background with maroon
cap? Have you seen that?

Schmidt: No, I haven't?

They
have a nice line of t-shirts featuring some of the greatest mustaches
in baseball history. They have you, they have Rollie Fingers, they have a
couple of other guys…

Schmidt: Really? I don't know.
Mine sure doesn't stand out. It's funny you mention that, Fingers is
sitting right across the table from me right now and we were talking
about mustaches earlier today.

How about guys in the game today? Best facial hair in the game today? Jayson Werth's beard?

Schmidt: Off the charts.

Anyone else stand out to you?

Schmidt:
No. Sometimes I get a little taken back by some of the things I see:
earrings, tattoos, hair, stuff like that. Then my wife has to remind me,
'take a look at yourself back in the 80's.' Imagine some of the stuff
we had going. I had a beard. I played with a beard. I played with curly
hair. I played with a permanent. We used to all get our hair curled back
then so we used to just shake our heads and walk out of the shower. I
don't want to throw any stones at anybody today because if you take me
back to my youth, I made some of the same decisions.



Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

What a week it's been for Chris Christie. 

After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."

He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list. 

"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said. 

(Three fire emojis).

"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Boom. Roasted.

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.

He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.

It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.

The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."

Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right? 

Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:

And:

And:

After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:

[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.

More to this as we learn it...
