Aaron Rodgers Was at the Sixers Game Last Night

Aaron Rodgers Was at the Sixers Game Last Night

The Sixers loss last night in Milwaukee was ugly. While they've dropped quite a few in their recent slump, Monday night's loss was pretty much the ugliest of the bunch. The Bucks are simply a very bad basketball team and Doug Collins' boys played down to their competition. Evan Turner -- who got the rare start -- shot 1-12 from the field which pretty much captures the night in a single stat.

Ugly all around. Except in the stands!

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was at the Bradley Center to take in the action as was Miss America Laura Kaeppler.

Could the Super Bowl Champion quarterback attending a basketball game featuring an opposing team that plays in the same city as the Philadelphia Eagles be a sign of his desires to play for Andy Reid and the Eagles one day? Most certainly not. But sometimes if you type those things on the Internet people click on them.

Or maybe Rodgers is going to star on the Bachelor and duel it out with Tim Tebow in a Rose Bowl. That's how that show works, right?

Also not likely.

So, to recap: A couple of pretty famous and pretty pretty people were at the Sixers game last night. Carry on.

Temple names Keith Gaither wide receivers coach

Temple head coach Geoff Collins on Monday added two new members to his coaching staff.

Keith Gaither will take over as the wide receivers’ coach and Kyle Lane is the new video coordinator. 

Gaither comes to Temple with 21 years of coaching experience. He spent last season as Army's wide receivers coach. Prior to that, he spent time with Tusculum College (1998-99), Thomasville City Schools (2000-04), Winston-Salem State (2005-08), Elon (2009-10) and Ball State (2010-14).

Gaither spent his collegiate career at Elon, where he was a four-year starter and voted all-region at defensive end before graduating in 1997. Collins originally had retained Frisman Jackson from the 2016 staff, but Jackson was hired by the Tennessee Titans. 

Lane is a Temple alum who spent time with Kansas during the 2016 season as its assistant video coordinator.

Soul sign DL John Sheehy, OL John King

The Philadelphia Soul on Monday signed two players from their recent open tryouts, defensive lineman John Sheehy and offensive lineman John King.

Sheehy (6-5, 260), primarily a defensive end at Western Texas A&M, appeared in 13 games with the Buffalos during the 2013 season recording 16.0 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss of 16 yards, and 1.5 sacks. He spent his 2014 season and a redshirt because of injury. He returned in the 2015 season posting 25.0 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for a total loss of 10 yards and one sack. 

“Finding guys like John is what makes hosting these tryouts well worth the effort,” head coach Clint Dolezel said in a statement. “Getting to the quarterback has to be a priority in arena football and I believe John has the skillset to be a great AFL pass rusher.”

King (6-8, 320) started 34 at Buffalo and was the Bulls' starting right tackle his last two seasons.

“With the addition of John to our offensive line, we will be able to continue our success of leading the league in fewest quarterback sacks," Dolezel said.  “Each year we produce at least one All-Arena offensive lineman and I believe John has the qualities to reach that caliber.”
