Shane Victorino's Hawaii Five-0 Appearance Looks Hilarious

Shane Victorino's Hawaii Five-0 Appearance Looks Hilarious

The only problem is I'm pretty sure that the Hawaii Five-0 remake is supposed to be a drama and not a comedy. By the looks of this preview clip of Shane Victorino's cameo on the show that airs tonight at 10:00 pm on CBS, one might come to the conclusion that the only reason anyone tunes in to watch said show is the super sweet Jurassic Park-like flyover shots of the Hawaiian island.

The only thing I really noticed about this clip that features Shane as a businessman of sorts on what looks like a company retreat is the mad chill background music. It sounds to me like Jimmy Cliff doing "World Upside Down." Need another Philly tie in? Cliff performed this song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with the legendary Roots crew. Sadly, the clip of that is no longer working.

From Jimmy Cliff's website:

“I wrote the lyrics, but it was a song originally written by [late
reggae great] Joe Higgs,” Cliff says. “Joe and I were very close. People
knew the role he played with Bob Marley & the Wailers. He for me
was one of the unsung heroes of Jamaican music. This was a song I always
felt I would do. I recorded the song in 2009 in Jamaica, played the
tapes for Tim and he pulled it out as one he wanted us to do. The song
was originally called ‘World Turned Upside Down,’ but I re-wrote the
lyrics and made it for the world today. Joe’s was not as broad a
subject.”

Mahalo!

As far as marketing for a television show with not exactly blockbuster ratings, recruiting a member of the WFC Philadelphia Phillies is certainly one way to go. At least one city and another state are talking about it.

I also like the idea of a world in which Shane Victorino is a powerful executive in the world of big pharma. We'd watch a whole series about just that.

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.
