Who's to Blame for Grossmann's 'Upper-Body Injury?'

Who's to Blame for Grossmann's 'Upper-Body Injury?'

It's standard operating procedure in hockey, especially in the playoffs, not to reveal specific details.
For Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann, he missed last night's third period with an "upper-body injury" and is currently listed as day-to-day.
Of course, Grossmann went to the bench Wednesday evening after a high hit from Tyler Kennedy and didn't look quite right. Jim Jackson and Bill Clement went so far on the broadcast as to specifically mention that he was spitting, looking for signs as to whether or not he was concussed.
But did Grossmann's problems, assuming they are concussion-related, start earlier in the game?
ProHockeyTalk has posted this video of Evgeni Malkin's outstretched elbow colliding with Grossmann not even four minutes into the first period.

Again, there's no official confirmation as to what specifically is wrong with Grossmann, but he did suffer two separate hits above the shoulder in the corner of his own defensive zone last night and both Tim Panaccio and Howard Eskin have called it a concussion.
Whatever the unspecified UBI, the Flyers better hope Grossmann can shake it. In just two months, he has already proven himself as one of, if not the most valuable defenseman on the roster.
Should Grossmann not be able to go, which Eskin indicates is the case, Panaccio reports either Erik Gustafsson or Brandon Manning will dress for Game 5.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, there was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Eagles and Cowboys will face off on Sunday Night Football, when we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
