Highlights From Freddie Mitchell Searching for Love On Millionaire Matchmaker

Highlights From Freddie Mitchell Searching for Love On Millionaire Matchmaker


With the Sixers-Pacers game going down to the wire at the Wells Fargo Center and the Flyers-Sabres playing an exciting one up in Buffalo, the usually must-see-live-TV event that was Freddie Mitchell appearing on Millionaire Matchmaker was relegated to the DVR. But it was worth the wait.

Some fun quotes and highlights from Freddie's episode:

  • "Basically he's been burned so many times because he's famous, and he's sick of it, so he wants [Millionaire Matchmaker] to filter."
  • Freddie: "I'm a retired NFL player thinking about coming back." "I might go back and try and play again." HA!
  • Freddie got dumped by his fiancee after the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.
  • FredEx is a 31-year-old father. He has a six-year old girl.
  • He's attracted to white and latino women.
  • Freddie: "Now I'm a venture capitalist. Any kind of ideas, businesses that I want to load my money in, that's what I do."
  • For his "mini dates," Freddie picked the Gemologist from North Carolina and a lady who was a stuntwoman that also enjoys Brazilian Jujitsu.
  • For his "master date," Freddie wisely went with the Gemologist. He took her on a helicopter ride over New York City, including Central Park.
  • His date, Adrienne, mentioned that she looked him up on the Internet and saw that he failed to pay child support.
  • "I didn't think it was none of her business about my situation with my child. I thought it was kind of rude... very rude actually." His date later said he had a good explanation, but the audience didn't get to hear it.
  • Freddie: "It was rude when she Googled me, but I've been in ball games where I was losing by 21 points or so but I never gave up, so I'm not going to give up on this date."
  • Freddie shared that he did some cheerleading stunts in high school and then proceeded to "do the chair," a cheerleading move in which he lifted his date up and sticks her rear end in his hand.
  • His date on Freddie: "A really open, nice, fun person. There were some rough spots, but overall I had fun."
  • He learned more in one date with the Millionaire Matchmaker's guidance than he did in the last three years.

All in all, Freddie was kind of a nice guy. Gentlemanly, but kind of jocky, if not a bit boring and seemingly full of shit. Sadly, Freddie and Adrienne (pictured above) never went on a second date. Hopefully he finds love some day. Or something. But for real, it'd be okay if he made more TV shows out of his dates.

Also, the other date airing on this episode was kind of an awesome train wreck during which a dude told the millionaire dater that he was totally not into her after she showed him a DVD of her in lingerie. On their first date.

Bravo.

Jeremy Hellickson leaves final start of season with right knee sprain

Jeremy Hellickson leaves final start of season with right knee sprain

Updated: 9:15 p.m.

ATLANTA — Phillies pitcher Jeremy Hellickson left his final start of the season Thursday night with a right knee sprain.

Facing the Atlanta Braves, Hellickson had gotten one out in the fourth inning when he waved for athletic trainer Scott Sheridan to come to the mound. Hellickson left the field with Sheridan by his side.

Hellickson did not allow a run in 3 1/3 innings. He gave up just one hit, walked none and struck out four.

Hellickson finished the season 12-10 with a 3.71 ERA in 32 starts. The Phillies acquired the 29-year-old right-hander in a trade with Arizona last fall. 

Hellickson will become a free agent after the World Series. The Phillies could extend him a one-year salary offer of $17 million. If Hellickson accepts, he would return to the club in 2017. If he rejects the offer and seeks a multi-year deal elsewhere, the Phillies would get a compensatory pick between the first and second rounds of next year's draft. 

Former Eagles CB Byron Maxwell benched by Dolphins

Former Eagles CB Byron Maxwell benched by Dolphins

Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell is not starting tonight against the Bengals. Maxwell, who the Eagles traded this past offseason, was already seeing his playing time diminish. Now, he will sit in favor of Tony Lippett, who has not seen a single snap for the Dolphins this season.

The Eagles' big trade this offseason keeps getting better and better. They acquired the eighth overall pick in the draft in exchange for the 13th overall pick, Maxwell and Kiko Alonzo. Not only were they able to rid themselves of Maxwell’s awful contract, but they were able to get value for a player who is now not considered an NFL starter. 

The eighth overall pick that the Eagles acquired from Miami was flipped to the Browns among other picks to move up to No. 2. As you may know, that No. 2 pick became offensive Rookie of the Month Carson Wentz. 

At the time of the trade, Maxwell originally failed his physical because of a shoulder injury. It was reported that the shoulder was so bad he could not perform a simple pushup, but the Dolphins traded for him anyway.

The Byron Maxwell trade was the stepping stone for the Eagles to land their quarterback of the future, and this news can only make them feel better about the move. Howie Roseman had an incredible offseason cleaning up the mess Chip Kelly left behind, and Maxwell’s benching will certainly help his case for executive of the year.
