Ryan Moats Doesn't Mess Around

Ryan Moats Doesn't Mess Around

The new blog setup over at the Eagles official website seems like it may bring quality entertainment to us even while the team may stink.  There is a blog by Kendra Wilkinson who is a playboy bunny, a blog by many of the Eagles cheerleaders, and a blog by Eagles rookie running back Ryan Moats among many other fan blogs.  From time to time I will post some excerpt of their blogs here for your entertainment.

I like Ryan Moats, despite his poor play last week, but I don't really grasp his blog thing on the Eagles website.  His most recent post today was about his fiance.

My whole life I never did the playing around thing with women. I always
wanted to find a lady who was on the same page with me and wanted the
same things I did. In college, it's hard to find that type of woman
because everyone wants to party. I really wasn't into that. She was the
only one I knew who was real concentrated on her work and knew what she
wanted. She's very independent.

It was just plain to see, if
this didn't work I wasn't going to get married. I don't see this not
working because we work at it. We don't like each other somedays. But
at the end of the day, I always come to my senses. That's part of love
I guess. Sometimes you don't like 'em, sometimes you do. She's very
responsible, a great worker. That's the type of partner I want. When we
try to make a life together, I don't want to have to do all of the work
like worrying about bills while my wife does the luxury thing. She
works just as hard as I do.

Okay, cool.  The guy found a woman that he loves and is going to get married, that's great man, good work Mr. Moats.  Is this what the future of sports teams on the Internet will be like?  We get to hear about the love lives of some of our teams players?  Can we sign Chris Webber or Terrell Owens up for one of these blogs?

The weirdest part of Moats most recent post was his proposal technique, not exactly Rico Suave:

What I did to propose was get her mad and started a fight that lasted
the whole week. I was being a jerk on purpose. She hung up on me that
week like four times. I got home and told her that I was being mean on
purpose. I got down on one knee and said since we get so mad at each
other let's do that marrying type of thang.

Ahh, "that marrying type of thang."  Congrats Mr. Moats to your new engagement and we want details about the honeymoon.

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

Best of NHL: Trocheck's last-second goal lifts Panthers past Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Vincent Trocheck scored with just under 5 seconds remaining to lift the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

Jonathan Marchessault also scored and James Reimer stopped 26 shots to help the Panthers complete a 5-0 road trip -- their first perfect trip of at least that many games in franchise history.

Reimer has won five straight decisions and has not lost in regulation since Jan. 7 against Boston, going 6-0-1 since.

The Panthers moved into a tie with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Bruins.

Kyle Brodziak, playing for the second time after missing 10 games due to a broken foot, scored for the Blues and Jake Allen finished with 31 saves. St. Louis lost its second straight since winning six in a row (see full recap).

Coyotes use three-goal 1st period to beat Ducks
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata capped Arizona's three-goal first period and the Coyotes held on for 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

Christian Dvorak and Jakob Chychrun also scored for Arizona, and starting goalie Mike Smith had 27 saves before leaving about 4 1/2 minutes into the third period after a collision in the net. Marek Langhamer helped kill a power play after being pressed into action for his NHL debut and stopped six of the seven shots he faced.

The Coyotes have won four of their last six.

Langhamer gave up Ryan Getzlaf's second goal of the night with 26.8 seconds to play, but thwarted two quality shots in the final seconds.

Jonathan Bernier gave up three goals on six shots in the first period for the Ducks. John Gibson came on to start the second and stopped all 14 shots he faced (see full recap).

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid admits to reaggravating foot injury after 2014 surgery, almost quitting

Joel Embiid trusts the Process, more so than anyone — the process of patience.

After sitting out two whole seasons because of foot injuries, Embiid learned the importance of patience the hard way.

Appearing on NBA TV's Open Court, Joel Embiid opened up about how he reaggravated the fracture in his foot that cost him the 2015-16 season.

"I didn't know how to deal with patience," Embiid said on the roundtable discussion. "I just wanted to do stuff, that's why I think I needed a second surgery, because after my first one, I just wanted to play basketball again. I just wanted to be on the court and I pushed through what I wasn't supposed to.

"At one point I thought about quitting. I just wanted to come back home and just forget everything."

Embiid goes on to discuss the Sixers' turnaround this season and his mindset during his recovery. Watch the full clip below. 

Embiid also said he models his game after Hakeem Olajuwon.
