Darryl Dawkins Rocks a Sweet Jacket, Is Fond of Meredith Marakovits

Darryl Dawkins Rocks a Sweet Jacket, Is Fond of Meredith Marakovits

Sure, he was a beast on the hardwood, but Chocolate Thunder became a legend in part because of his over-sized personality and panache off the court.

The jacket Darryl Dawkins was rocking courtside at Tuesday night's Sixers blowout win over the Sacramento Kings was inline with that. I'm not sure if it's crocodile skin? Snake skin? Whatever it is, he looks like his typical badass self.

Comcast SportsNet's Meredith Marakovits sat down with Dawkins while the game was in progress to discuss the incredibly impressive start the Sixers have gotten out to this season. The resident of Lovetron, not surprisingly, has been impressed by Doug Collins hard-working squad. He was also a bit impressed by Ms. Marakovits.

Also in attendance on Tuesday was the Axeman, Jeremiah Trotter, who can be seen to Dawkins' right. He didn't dress all pimp-like, so he's not as noticeable.

Penn can't stop Chase Edmonds in loss to Fordham

BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.

Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).

Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.

Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.

Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.

Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.

Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate for the Phillies tonight and bats eighth. Alfaro has appeared in just four games since being called up earlier this month, and has just one hit in 10 at-bats. 

Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup and batting fifth. Pete Mackanin has said that Ryan Howard would get a lot of playing time during the last few games, but it is Joseph who gets the start tonight. Joseph is batting just .154 against the Mets this season. 

Odubel Herrera, who has been hitting well in September, will remain in the three spot. He has two homers and is batting .391 over the past week. Herrera has two hits in six at-bats against Mets' starter Sean Gilmartin.
