La Salle Is Going Dancing

La Salle Is Going Dancing

Temple and Villanova too. But they've done that in the past two decades so that's not as exciting as the Explorers getting a bid.

La Salle will get the national spotlight as well with one of the play-in games on Wednesday night.

Let's go Philly.

From CSN:

Villanova (20-13), a No. 9 seed, has been placed in the South region and
will face 8-seed North Carolina (24-10) on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

Temple (23-9), also a 9-seed, has been placed in the East region and will face NC State (24-10) on Friday in Dayton, Ohio.

Salle (21-9), which had to sweat out Selection Sunday, will face Boise
State (21-10) on Wednesday at 9:10 p.m. in Dayton in one of the First
Four games between 13-seeds. It will be the Explorers' first NCAA
tournament appearance since 1992.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

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.
