With Winless Pistons In Town, Tickets for Sixers' 'Will-to-Win' Game Going for Less Than a Buck

With Winless Pistons In Town, Tickets for Sixers' 'Will-to-Win' Game Going for Less Than a Buck

Think extra hard before you buy that soft pretzel on your lunch break this afternoon. Yes, I know it's delicious, especially with some nice spicy mustard which happens to be a free condiment, but think of the other caloric-free options. Instead of that carb-filled snack, you could spend that money on some quality family entertainment.

Tickets for tonight's Sixers-Pistons game at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia start as low as just $0.78 on StubHub. That's less than a buck for you counting at home!

Why are tickets so cheap, you may ask? Well the Detroit Pistons are currently on an eight game losing streak after having played eight games this season which gives them a total of zero wins.

That and Andrew Bynum is out until 2013 likely has something to do with it. Don't think the Sixers are going to take Detroit lightly though. Spencer Hawes says the Pistons are going to be both hungry and thirsty to win the game. Which makes me maybe want to buy that pretzel.

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.
