Royce White shows off Frank Sinatra tattoo, questions headline writers at the Inquirer

New Sixers forward Royce White was present at Sixers media day on Friday and, before addressing concerns over his travel arrangements, showed off this awesome tattoo of Ol' Blue Eyes on his arm:

We'll take this time to briefly revisit my Frank Sinatra-Sixers corollary.

Anyway, notice the tweet above is from the Inqy's Sixers beat writer Keith Pompey. Pompey would later write an article titled, "Royce White downplays his aversion to flying." Quotes here:

"I think the most glaring [misconception], probably, from paying attention to the public opinions has to be that I can't fly," White said. "(A) that I don't want to fly. And (B) that I won't fly by choice."
"I think a lot of people think that I and the Rockets went through a situation that was really hostile," he said, "and it really wasn't. It was more so a legislation thing . . . and it got really complex and technical."

White went on to say that he'll fly when he has to and drive when he can. Perfectly reasonable. He also uses the word "glaring" related to the word [misconception] to state that the public has the wrong idea about his aversion to travel. Could that be seen as "downplaying" the issue relative to everyone's expectations? Yup.
But not to Royce:

It goes on from there:

Trust us, Royce, very few of us are in this for the money. #BeWell

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The 2017 Philadelphia Phillies look quite a bit different than the team that trotted out on the field last season.

One constant, however, is the Phillie Phanatic who brings his A-game every single year for most of our lives.

His consistency is remarkable.

Until now!

In a new promo video, the Phanatic attempts to get a makeover at the hands of shortstop and stylish dude Freddy Galvis.

The only problem is: if you're going to give the Phanatic dreadlocks -- and really, this sounds like a great idea to me -- you have to give him GREEN dreadlocks.

You'll notice they give him a 'fro at the end which is greeted with approval and it matches.

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz has had a whilrwind few days in Philadelphia as the city hosts the 2017 NFL draft.

He took some time between posing for selfies with Eagles fans and messing with Dallas Cowboys fans and hitting trick shots on live TV to talk about his busy week with CSNPhilly's Danny Pommells.

Obviously that pesky Cowboys' fan was a topic of interest.

"He was coming up and was getting booed. I was like, 'I can't take this picture.' So I nicely took his hat off and set it down and took the picture. He was cool with it. It was all in fun," Wentz said.

Carson also spoke about the record-setting Philly crowd and impressive atmosphere on Day 1 of the draft

"It was crazy. I didn't know what to expect being at the Draft Experience. The fans just kind of all circulated, it was nuts. That's Eagles fans. So much passion."

As for the Birds' first round pick Derek Barnett? Wentz had to look him up just like many Eagles fans.

"I watched some film of him. He's a dynamic player. He can really turn that corner and bend around that corner. I'm happy he's on our team I'll tell you that."

"I've heard he's a hard-working kid so that will serve him well," Wentz said.

The NFL Draft Experience continues on Friday and Saturday and is free for all fans.
