The Evster Checks In on Desean Jackson’s Twitter Account

The Evster Checks In on Desean Jackson’s Twitter Account

If you’re not on Twitter yet, then you’re living a lie.

Between Coco tweeting out pics of her bonkers bazooka butt, Rob Delaney’s absurdity and Richard Simmons’ zest for absolutely everything (he’s going to the movies today!), Twitter is by far the best thing going in this world. Even better than Federal Donuts. Yep, I said it. I SAID IT.

And the best thing about Twitter (slightly better than the bazooka butts) is getting to see what our favorite athletes are up to ALL THE TIME.

What a world we live in!

Wanna know what Shaq’s eating for breakfast? IT’S ON TWITTER! Wanna tell Bubby Brister that he can suck your butt? HE’S ON TWITTER! Wanna keep track of what Desean Jackson is doing this off-season? THAT WAS SIMPLY A RHETORICAL QUESTION SO I COULD TRANSITION INTO WHAT THIS WHOLE BLOG POST IS ABOUT!

So without further adieu, let’s check in our main man, D-Jax.

Oh, you know, just the Eagles #1 playmaker tweeting pictures of himself with his “Snoopie app.” No big deal. Just a two-time Pro Bowler, rap label entrepreneur and all around P.I.M.P. instagramming pictures of himself LOOKIN’ HARD AS A MUHGGG while rockin’ blue shades and cartoon diamonds!!!

Ugh, you’re so damn cute, Desean, even though you spelled Snoopie wrong. Who am I kidding? That somehow makes you even cuter! I love you D-Jax. I’m downloading this app immediately. Also I had no problem with you falling backwards into the end zone that one time. THAT WUZ DOPE.

Okay, first of all, no one b like dat. I’m sorry Desean, I’m your biggest supporter, but there is no person in this world, NO PERSON IN THIS WORLD, who b like “Jac keep it ROLLEN tho”. Trust me on this, D-Jax, trust me. I know there’s a lot of people out there who love you, and a couple of people out there who understand what the hell you’re talking about, but I assure you, no one b like dat.

This picture is fascinating in so many ways.

First of all, the Orlando Magic are beating the Chicago Bulls?!?! In Chicago?!?! And they’re using the old squads, so someone is playing with MJ, and they’re still losing to Michael Doleac and the Magic?!?!?

Second of all, what the hell is Desean Jax doin’ hangin’ out with Chris Brown?!?! That guy is SCUM. Desean! Stay away from him! Bruno Mars prolly likes video games too!

You gotta figure that the dude in the upper right hand corner has to be using the Bulls, because he looks SO SAD. Chris Brown is just rollin’ him, wapping threes with Nick Anderson, wearing a dumb hat (WHO WEARS A WINTER HAT IN LAS VEGAS?), while Bill Wennington can’t hit a wide open 15-footer.

I could write about this picture for HOURS, but I’m gonna move on.

But before I do! Why is that guy on the Magic -- possibly Bo Outlaw? -- SO TIRED??? He’s bent over and pulling on his shorts!!! Put a sub in, dude! Ike Austin, maybe? Or Matt Harpring? Someone!!!

Adorbz!!!

I’m proud of lil Cam too!!!

Although I think the buttons on his shirt might be messed up.

What’s up with his collar?

I love Twitterrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!

You can follow Desean on Twitter @DeseanJackson10. You can also follow The Evster on Twitter @TVMWW. I’m not sure if you can follow lil Cam yet, but one day maybe, one day.

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."
