Fan appreciation night for Sixers fans takes place this Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia and in advance of that big event the team promised "76 minutes of mayhem" today. The event took place from noon until... 1:16 pm down around 5th and Arch Streets. Many fans who showed up received free Allen Iverson, Wilt, and Dr. J. bobbleheads. Even those who weren't lucky enough to get a bobble were still treated to the sight of the Sixers dance team and big-headed Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin... doing something.

This is apparently another instance of me not knowing or understanding what the Nae Nae is. My apologies. Also, I'm not sure if that depiction of Betsy is historically accurate.

For those unfamiliar, the 76ers unveiled a mascot race of sorts earlier in the season featuring Ben, Betsy, and a giant Liberty Bell with legs.

This just happened. #BetsyRoss #NaeNae
