Hunter Pence On Conan O'Brien: Still Obsessed with Eating and Drinking, But at Least He Shaved

Hunter Pence On Conan O'Brien: Still Obsessed with Eating and Drinking, But at Least He Shaved

World Series Champion and Generally Goofy Guy Hunter Pence was a guest of Conan O'Brien's on Tuesday night on TBS to talk about being on top of the world, broken bats, what it's like to be really interested in drinking out of a mug on television, and why he chose to come up to bat to a Katy Perry song at one point in career.

It's all very Hunter Pence.

Not surprisingly, Conan's sidekick Andy Richter may have had the best line of the segment when he said what he'd use as his at-bat music.

Report: Darren Sproles tore ACL and broke arm on same play

Still riding high after a crazy win on Sunday, the Eagles got some bad news the next morning. 

Darren Sproles is done for the season. Maybe for his career. 

According to a report from ESPN, Sproles tore his ACL and broke his arm on the same play on Sunday afternoon at the Linc. The play came early in the second quarter. It first looked like Sproles hurt his knee and was then kicked on his right wrist on the way down. 

Sproles will have surgery on his arm on Monday and surgery on his knee later, per the ESPN report. 

The 34-year-old running back once said this would be his final NFL season but then backed off those comments when asked this summer. 

"We're gonna see," he said in June. "Right after we make the playoffs, then come back and ask me." 

It's possible Sproles' career is over, but it's also possible he'll try to make a comeback so his career doesn't end like this. 

After picking up 11 rushing yards on Sunday before leaving the game, Sproles now has 19,155 all-purpose yards in his career. That's the eighth most in NFL history. 

In his absence on Sunday, Torrey Smith took over as the Eagles' punt returner. Smith tweeted after the game that he hasn't returned punts since high school.
