Football Food For Eagles Fans - Divisional Playoff Round

Football Food For Eagles Fans - Divisional Playoff Round

Eagles fans all across the country enjoyed yesterday's dethroning of the reigning champions on their home turf. Our football foodie Mark may have enjoyed it just a bit more than the rest of us because he had this delicious meal to savor during the victory.

From Mark's flickr page:

I went steakhouse classic here. Grilled (outside. Yes, I fired up the
Weber grill) New York strip that I sliced and laid atop some red potato
smashed potatoes (made with garlic, heavy cream, blue cheese and
crumbled smoked bacon). On the side, some crispy baked onion rings.

In the Chickie & Pete's glass, Brooklyn Brewery Brown Ale.

Needless to say, it all went down pretty smooth. I'm not really a
mashed/smashed potatoes fan, but, man, these were some of the best I've
ever had (can I say that about something I myself cooked?).

And with the Eagles laying a solid 23-11 win on the suddenly overrated
"NY" Giants, it went down even better. No repeat for you, Giant fans!
Goes down even better as you saw the "Ah Geeze" Eli Manning face and
the "Whattttt happened???" Tom Coughlin face.

Here's to hoping we get to see what kind of feast Mark pulls out for the Super Bowl.

Report: Andrew Bogut expected to sign with Cavaliers after buyout from Sixers

Report: Andrew Bogut expected to sign with Cavaliers after buyout from Sixers

Andrew Bogut, we hardly knew ye. 

After coming over from Dallas as part of the Nerlens Noel trade, Bogut is already thinking about his next move.

With the Sixers expected to buy out Bogut's contract, the former No. 1 overall pick will look to sign with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon. 

The Sixers swapped Noel for Bogut, Justin Anderson and a top-18 protected first-round pick — which will likely turn into two second-round picks — last Thursday. 

With LeBron James begging the front office for help, the Cavaliers are also expected to sign Bogut's former Dallas teammate Deron Williams in Monday, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania

La Salle suffers demoralizing loss to struggling UMass

AMHERST, Mass. -- Zach Lewis scored a career-high 37 points, including six three-pointers, and Massachusetts pulled away from La Salle 84-71 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.

Lewis, whose 37-point effort was the best for any player in the Atlantic 10 this season, hit nine of his 16 field goal attempts overall and was a perfect 13-for-13 at the free throw line. Dejon Jarreau added 20 points and four three-ponters for UMass (14-15, 4-12).

Pookie Powell hit five 3-pointers and scored 24 points, and B.J. Johnson added 20 points to lead La Salle (14-13, 8-8).

Both teams shot similar percentages and had similar three-point totals, but the Minutemen finished with a plus-14 advantage at the free throw line.

La Salle remained within striking distance but a 13-4 stretch for UMass midway through the second half pushed its lead to 63-51. The Minutemen kept the Explorers at arm's length the rest of the way.
