Post for the Dirty Birdman - 5.2

A picture's worth a thousand words.

-Reggie Brown seems to have impressed at the mini camp.

-More on the mini camp.
-I hate the Dallas Cowboys and their fans, but i like her. (borderline work safe)

-I could use some performance enhancing contacts to get those TPS reports out faster.
-Scientists come close to answering David Bowie's question is there life on Mars?
-In an interview earlier today the author of AnAsianWebsite.com had these thoughts to say on tonight's Phillies matchup against Pedro Martinez.  Note: This quote is not a direct quote but rather a guess at what the quote from Brian would have been, so the validity of this quote is highly questionable.

I don't want to jinx the big one game winning streak the Mets have
going, so I will decline this interview.  Off the record, however, I
have faith in Pedro to be able to pitch an above average game every
time he goes out to pitch.

Joke:

A beautiful young New York woman was so depressed that she decided to
end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. But just before she
could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young sailor stopped her.

"You have so much to live for," said the sailor. "Look, I’m off to
Europe tomorrow and I can stow you away on my ship. I’ll take care of
you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy."

With nothing to lose, the woman accepted. That night the sailor brought
her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he
would bring her three sandwiches and make love to her until dawn.

Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection.

"What are you doing here?" asked the captain.

"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she replied. "He
brings me food and I get a free trip to Europe. Plus he’s screwing me."

"He certainly is," replied the captain. "This is the Staten Island Ferry."

 

Ben Simmons, Robert Covington react to Ersan Ilyasova trade

Ben Simmons, Robert Covington react to Ersan Ilyasova trade

On Wednesday, the Sixers traded Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks in exchange for Tiago Splitter and a 2017 second-round pick, as well as the option to swap 2017 second-round selections (see story).

"I want to thank Ersan Ilyasova for his positive contributions to this organization both on and off the basketball court," president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said in a statement. "Ersan is a true professional whose daily examples of hard work, focus and consistency have helped facilitate the ongoing growth of our program and culture."

The Sixers took to Instagram to express their appreciation for Ilyasova’s leadership. Ilyasova quickly embraced the role of a veteran go-to when he was traded to the Sixers in early November. Both posts below exemplify his team-first mentality.

Rare goal from Russell lifts Oilers over Panthers
SUNRISE, Fla. -- Kris Russell's goal with 7:58 left was his first in more than a year and lifted the Edmonton Oilers over Florida 4-3 on Wednesday night to snap the Panthers' five-game winning streak.

Russell's goal was his first since Feb. 11, 2016, when he played for Calgary. He went goalless in his first 48 games with the Oilers.

Fellow defenseman Oscar Klefbom also scored for Edmonton, as did forwards Zack Kassian and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Connor McDavid, who came into the night leading the NHL scoring race, had an assist on Russell's goal.

Aleksander Barkov, Colton Sceviour and Jonathan Marchessault scored for Florida. Keith Yandle had two assists for the Panthers, giving him 400 points for his career.

Cam Talbot stopped 31 shots for the Oilers, who have won their last eight games at Florida -- last losing on the Panthers' ice in 2002. James Reimer made 31 saves for the Panthers, who just completed a 5-0-0 road trip (see full recap).
