If you're one of those people in the Philadelphia area who has to wake up really early in the morning -- like, before 10:00 am -- and have to sit in traffic while maneuvering an automobile while attempting to drink enough coffee as to not be a total zombie on your way to a fun day of work in that cubicle, then you're familiar with the Preston and Steve show on 93.3 WMMR.
The radio show crew is over at Xfinity Live this week for their annual Camp Out for Hunger where they do tremendous work for the great Philabundance organization. Also, as the name suggests, some of those crazy dudes actually sleep in an RV for like a week.
One of the fun things they did to help promote the cause and encourage people to get involved this year was to get the coaches from all of the City 6 schools to come on down on Tuesday and compete in a Pop-a-Shot tournament.
The University of Pennsylvania's Jerome Allen was given the No. 1 seed because he played in the NBA which is clearly a mistake by the committee. You want the guy with minimal basketball experience who instead opted to spend his college days in a nice dingy bar.
And coaches, here's a tip from a professional blogger: bank shot. Always the bank shot.

Villanova University's Jay Wright appeared to have a sweet stroke but much like his team in the big dance, they caved in the later rounds. It was the Drexel Dragons' Bruiser Flint who took home the trophy which just so happened to be a "bronzed" athletic supporter.
Let's hope it doesn't carry the same traditions as the cup they win in the NHL.

It look like the Eagles have found their replacement for Greg Lewis.
According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Eagles are expected to hire Rams receivers/passing game coordinator Mike Groh.
The news that the Eagles fired Lewis came out on Jan. 9 and the team has been looking for a replacement. They reportedly interviewed Groh and Bills receivers coach Sanjay Lal.
Groh, 45, spent the 2016 season with the Rams after three years as the Bears' receivers coach. Groh is available because the Rams switched head coaches, bringing in Sean McVay.
Before coming to the NFL, Groh was a longtime coach at the college level. He is the son of former Virginia head coach Al Groh and eventually became an offensive coordinator under his father before bouncing from Alabama to Louisville and then back to Alabama before heading to the NFL.
Groh was actually the quarterback at Virginia in the 90s before his father ever coached there. Groh's first coaching job was under his father as assistant coach with the Jets in 2000, when Al Groh was named their head coach for the season.
If the Eagles are looking to sign a big-name free agent at wide receiver, there could be a reunion of sorts in Philly. During his four seasons as an NFL receivers coach, Groh has worked with Alshon Jeffery and Kenny Britt, who are two of the top receivers who will be available.
The Eagles started their season with a first-round pick, two second-round picks and a third-round pick at wide receiver, but their unit was one of the worst in the NFL. Jordan Matthews was consistent, but tight end Zach Ertz was the team's leading receiver.
It's unlikely Groh will have the same unit to work with as Lewis did in 2016, but it is likely Groh will be expected to get more out of his group in 2017.
