Del Frisco's wouldn't print a fake receipt so Evan Mathis was forced to make one. Here's how he did it.

Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis is a player who will go to great lengths for a laugh.

You may have heard about or seen the receipt he posted on Twitter (seen above) on Thursday from Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse for a whopping $64,000. The caption read "Teaching rookies a lesson..." This coming just days after Lane Johnson's $17,000 receipt from the same steakhouse made waves in the media. Johnson explained that his bill was split multiple ways and was just a nice dinner out with the guys, not part of any rookie hazing or anything.

Turns out, Mathis never drank a single sip of Remy Martin Louis XIII or ate a single bite of Banana Bread Pudding to obtain that $64,000 receipt.

Some news outlets actually ran with the fake receipt story but as Adam Schefter pointed out this morning, the items on the receipt formed an acrostic that read "ROCK PAPER SCISSORS RASHAMBO." PFT's Mike Florio had a bit of a hissy fit about it which is a rather hilarious read.

It may not have taken $64k from his bank account but a lot of effort went into the photo you saw. We reached out to Mathis via Twitter and asked how he made the receipt.

He told us he first went to Del Frisco's on Wednesday night and "asked if they could print out a fake receipt. It wasn't possible so I scanned my dinner receipt."

"I created all the data," he told us. "Sent it to my friend who has PhotoShop skills. Then I just printed it out and folded it to the right size."

It's worth noting his friend has very good PhotoShop skills.

But what about that red table cloth that the receipt was placed on? Was that fake as well? It was a red polo shirt.

Union's home win streak snapped, fall to Whitecaps, 3-2

CHESTER, Pa. — Roland Alberg continued his scoring run (see story), but it couldn’t cover up for defensive mistakes, as the frustrated Union fell to the Vancouver Whitecaps, 3-2, on Saturday night at Talen Energy Stadium.

The loss, their second in three games, snaps a 10-game home unbeaten streak for the Union and sinks their record to 7-5-5 on the season and 6-1-2 at home. The Whitecaps move to 7-7-3.

Thing were looking up for the Union early. The hosts opened scoring in the 14th minute with an eye-opening display of skill from Tranquillo Barnetta, Ilsinho, Fabian Herbers and Alberg.

Barnetta began the play upfield off a turnover from Pedro Morales. And after ticky-tac passing at the top of the Whitecaps box, a one-touch delivery eventually found the feet of Herbers on the right side, giving the rookie space to fire off a right-footed volley that decked the upper left corner post.

That’s where Alberg pounced. The red-hot midfielder settled it off a Sebastien Le Toux deflection and easily placed it home for his fifth goal of the season — all of which came in the Union’s last three games.

But the Whitecaps would counter just five-minutes later on one of many Union mistakes. A corner cross into the box slipped through the hands of Andre Blake and onto the head of Andrew Jacobson and in.

The Whitecaps made it 2-1 in the 42nd by catching the Union overcommitted as a result of a Barnetta turnover in the midfield. On the counter, Kekuta Manneh torched Union defender Josh Yaro, cut to the middle and fired off a low shot that cleanly beat Blake. In the 84th minute, Christian Bolanos added the insurance when his shot was deflected in by Keegan Rosenberry.

It was the eighth goal the Union allowed in their last three games.

The Union fought back in stoppage time, when a corner was headed by Walter Restrepo back into the crease where Chris Pontius was waiting to make the finish. However, the match ended seconds after, 3-2.
