GQ asked pro athletes who are the 10 most hated among them and who do you think came in at number one? You guessed it, Terrell Owens.
1. Terrell Owens
Owens after beating the New York Giants, November 2004.
Behavior detrimental to the team
Bonus points for:
Contract-negotiating high jinks, telling Eagles coach Andy Reid to
“shut up,” telling offensive coordinator Brad Childress not to speak to
him unless spoken to, falsely outing 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia,
suggesting Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was responsible for their
2005 Super Bowl loss, suggesting the Eagles would win more if Brett
Favre was their quarterback, employing Drew Rosenhaus as an agent,
fighting with ex-teammate and team ombudsman Hugh Douglas, asking if
anyone else in the locker room “wants a piece of me”… Oh, fuck it.
Oh T.O., we will always love your ego maniacal ways and will miss your end zone celebrations dearly. Also cracking the top 5 were some athletes with Philly connections, Kobe Bryant and Curt Schilling. I used to be a Schilling fan, but after turning on the Red Sox and listening to too much of Shil's media whoring, I can agree with him making the list. Kobe is Fredo to me after claiming no Philly connections back in 2001.

About NBC internships
Pete Mackanin continues to play musical chairs with his logjam of infielders.
Tonight, Cesar Hernandez returns to the Phillies' lineup playing second and leading off. He sat against lefty Clayton Kershaw and will face righty Yu Darvish tonight. Hernandez has fared better against right-handers (.293) than southpaws (.279). He leads the team with a .359 OBP this season.
Maikel Franco will take a seat tonight. Franco has been much better over his last 10 games. In that span, Franco is 15 for 35 (.371) with two homers and seven RBIs. His average for the season is still just at .232.
J.P. Crawford will take over at the hot corner and bat seventh. Crawford has been sort of up and down since his call up, but his patented control of the strike zone has certainly translated at the big league level. The rookie is hitting a modest .256 so far but has an OBP of .340.

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Odubel Herrera, CF
4. Rhys Hoskins, 1B
5. Nick Williams, RF
6. Aaron Altherr, LF
7. J.P. Crawford, 3B
8. Jorge Alfaro, C
9. Aaron Nola, P
And here's how the Dodgers will line up against Nola:
