If you were one of those folks who were legitimately concerned about Eagles defensive end Jason Babin's intention to participate in the running of the bulls right before training camp opens... you're quite the mark, aren't you?
Babin played off the apparent gag over the weekend, admitting he doesn't even have a passport. Though his original comment wasn't provided with a whole lot of context, and his interest in such an experience certainly could be legit, the odds he would actually go -- or that the Eagles would allow him -- were always improbable. Sounds like one for the bucket list though.
And so concludes that chapter of the increasingly bizarre tale of Jason Babin.

LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?
Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.
Enter Mike Trout.
The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.
First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?
And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.
We can dream, right?
