Kansas City BBQ and Andy Reid always seemed like a match made in heaven.
You can only eat cheesesteaks for so many years before your palate
needs something new, fresh, marbled in fat, and even more waistline expanding.
How many different barbecue-specific eating establishments have you dined at in your lifetime?
5? 10? 15? 20? 25? 30 max?
How about in the last four months alone? Via NESN:
Fifty!? Damn. That's a whole lot of ribs, brisket, and BBQ baked beans. Is he
joking? Is he being earnest? I'm going to guess he's half serious but
embellishing a bit to make it seem like he's joking.
This in addition to the fine people at Tommy Bahama who have been keeping Reid decked out in his favorite shirts.
"You know what, over on the Plaza [in Kansas City] there's a Tommy Bahama shop," Reid told The Program's Soren Petro on Monday (via Arrowhead Pride). "There's a lady over there who took care of me, the manager of the
store over there. She heard the story about the Tommy Bahama shirts and
she sent that one over to me without any fanfare or anything. I
Aldous Snow does admire Sir Tommy Bahama, but what makes Andy such a fan?
"You wear them and you can hide cheeseburgers underneath and no one will ever know."
New secret to life: have your team quit on you, and then move to Kansas City.

Oh, man. Remember that time Joel Embiid did the Dream Shake?!? And then that time he did the crossover. And when he was pumping the crowd up on his way back down the court after drilling a three ball?!?
Well now you don't have to just remember it. You can watch it all again.
Our friendly video team cut together a video featuring every single minute of JoJo's action in his NBA debut. Sadly, he was on a 20-minute restriction, but that didn't stop Brett Brown from getting him out there for a couple of extra minutes.
Enjoy. And as Dario Saric would say, "I love him so much."

Sevyn Streeter, the performing artist who claimed Wednesday that the Sixers replaced her for the national anthem because of her intent to wear a jersey with the words "We Matter," signed a contract that prohibited political statements, according to CBS3's Jan Carabeo.
Per the report, Streeter was offered an alternate shirt and told she could wear her own shirt in the stands after the performance.
"I was angry, extremely, extremely angry and disappointed and honestly brought to tears by all of it. It broke my heart," Streeter told The Associated Press. "Honestly, I was very excited about being able to perform the national anthem. I was really looking forward to that."
The Sixers didn't directly confirm or deny the allegation but responded with the following statement:
"The Philadelphia 76ers organization encourages meaningful actions to drive social change. We use our games to bring people together, to build trust and to strengthen our communities. As we move from symbolic gestures to action, we will continue to leverage our platform to positively impact our community."
This statement is consistent with efforts being made throughout the NBA calling for action over gestures, as detailed in a feature in B/R Mag.
“I’m past the gestures,” Carmelo Anthony told B/R Mag. “I’m past that. It’s all about creating things now and putting things in motion. So, that’s what I’m on. I’m trying to get guys on board with that and help them understand that — enough of the gesturing and talking and all of that stuff — we need to start putting things in place.”
