Video: Lucky Winner of One Millionth Phillies Bobblehead Giveaway Seemingly Unimpressed with Gold Painted Chooch

The Phillies gave out their one millionth bobblehead in franchise history on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park, and in addition to a historic 7-3 walkoff victory on the grand slam by John Mayberry Jr., one special fan received an extra-metallic version of the mini Carlos Ruiz figurine.

The lucky little fan received a gold-painted Carlos Ruiz bobblehead and was also handed his prize directly from Chooch himself as the youngster passed through the turnstile to enter the ballpark.

If you watch the video below, the kid is clearly not overly impressed with the gold paint on his Chooch bobblehead. He must have made some killer macaroni Christmas ornaments in his day and knows you can get a can of spray paint at the local hardware store for a couple of bucks.

Maybe someone needs to make the little dude a bobblehead of himself. I hear people love those.

 

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pounds) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing against the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
