Of Course the Phillies and Eagles Shared a Giant Porn Collection at Veterans Stadium

Of Course the Phillies and Eagles Shared a Giant Porn Collection at Veterans Stadium

We all love a crazy tale of debauchery from the good old days at Veterans Stadium. Typically those stories involve some teenagers, a joint, a flask, or a dingy bathroom up in the 700 Level. We haven't heard a ton of zany stuff from the team locker rooms way down below.

Former Philadelphia Eagle defensive tackle Hollis Thomas was a guest on the 94 WIP morning show earlier today and thankfully enlightened the rest of us to the newsstand-like porn collection that was shared between the Phillies and Birds.

From CBS, via Deadspin:

“[The Phillies] did have an awesome… we used to share like the shower and rest room area at the Vet, and they had an awesome collection of porn. They did, it was just like a bunch of books in there,” Thomas said Thursday on the 94WIP Morning Show. “It was just in a chest. When I first got there I was like, ‘What is this?’ They was like, ‘This is reading material’. I was like, ‘Reading material?’”

Thomas said that the blue chest of reading material was not a secret.

“Everybody knows about the blue chest,” he said. “It was an array, a pretty good array of magazines. You actually had a variety too. It was almost like a newsstand, put it that way. Actually, yeah, it was the precursor to the internet. You just picked up one, and there was a little sign that said when you’re done with the book, put it back. I did get a couple of books where the pages were stuck together.”

And the legend of the Blue Chest was born.

Turns out my Uncle Ed was closer to a professional athlete than I thought back in the 80s. Except he had the Brown Cardboard Box.

Trump upsets a bunch of NBA players, too, withdraws invite to Warriors

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”

President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”

Curry told reporters Friday that he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.

Curry received support from fellow NBA players including 4-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most re-tweeted post ever.

Golden State's statement:

5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant:

Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:

Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:

Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:

After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's Men's Basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the Nation’s capital anytime soon. Except the Patriots.
