Bernie Parent Wants You to 'Stay Horny' This Valentine's Day

Bernie Parent Wants You to 'Stay Horny' This Valentine's Day

Bernie Parent wants you to "stay horny." You read that correctly.

In an article on Philly.com entitled, "Unleash your hidden wolf on Valentine's Day," Flyers Hall of Fame goaltender Bernie Parent is dispensing advice on the matters of love.

Using the 2012 Winter Classic Alumni Game as an innuendo-laden preface, Bernie explains the pressures of having to "perform" as a 66-year-old in front 45,000 fans and millions more at home.

After explaining that it was his inner-wolf that allowed him to work up the courage to reap the rewards of venturing into the unknown, rather than merely sitting on the bench and waving, Bernie applies this logic to the ways of the heart.

Everything I type will fail in comparison so here's Bernie:

Let’s forget my career with the Philadelphia Flyers, back-to-back
Stanley Cup championships, and Hall of Fame induction, just for one
minute. Even though these significant events have opened many doors and
opportunities beyond my wildest dreams, I am here to introduce you to
the human side of me; the primitive side, the animal side, the “wolf.”

...

Now that I’ve set the tone, revealed my goal to help people find what
makes them tick and my purpose for joining Philly.com, I’d like to turn
the focus to the month of February and Valentine’s Day.

...

Being that I am a seasoned ladies man and “Philadelphia’s most
interesting man,” I have the same message for both types of people: Find
your wolf.

...

Stay horny, my friends.

—The Most Interesting Man in Philadelphia

Chris Long donating first 6 game checks for scholarships in Charlottesville

Chris Long talked the talk. Now he's walking the walk. 

The Eagles defensive end is donating his first six game checks of the 2017 season to fund two scholarships in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. 

In August, Long spoke out about the violent protests in Charlottesville (see story).  At that time, he thought the majority of the original protesters, protesting the removal of a Confederate statue, were from out of town. He thought his neighbors were the ones trying to stop them. He also took umbrage to President Donald Trump's response, which condemned "violence on many sides."  

Now, Long is doing more than just speaking out. Based on his $1 million base salary in 2017, six games checks will amount to roughly $375,000. 

"In August, we watched people fill our hometown streets with hatred and bigotry," Long said in a release. "Megan (his wife) and I decided to try to combat those actions with our own positive investment in our community." 

According to the release, the scholarships will be administered by Long's alma mater, St. Anne's-Belfield School. Two members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia will be given the seven-year scholarships to go a Virginia school. The two scholarships will go to students entering sixth grade and will provide them with tuition through high school graduation. 

The Longs have actually been sponsoring a student who will graduate this spring from St. Anne's-Belfield, the release said. They have been paying for the student's tuition for the past six years. But now, Long wants to make a more public statement. 

"We want these scholarships to be reflective of what the 'Cville' community is really about -- supporting one another, social equality and building up those in our community who need it," Long said. "We hope our investment will change the lives of the students who receive the scholarship and in turn, those students can positively impact others."
