AI: Not Charlotte?!?

AI: Not Charlotte?!?

Iverson's like "CHARLOTTE?!?!  They have a team???  Holy shit.  Wait!  Forget it!  I'll stay!  I'll stay.  Jesus.  Forget I said anything."

Let's check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer's article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte.  A poster "Reality" weighs in:

You people all need to get a grip. It's the freaking SIXERS. This
team has no heart, no coach and no talent. Get used to it for the next
5 years because this isn't a quick fix.

I personally only watch the Sixers for two reasons.

1.
For the outside chance that Hip Hop one day will break his ankle while
doing one of his trampoline dunks. Either that or the guy inside of the
costume has a heart attack and starts convulsing on the hardwood floor.
If I was the PR guy I'd have a halftime spectacular of blindfolding
that piece of trash mascot and making him run around the court trying
to dodge bear traps. A rapping, dancing, urban rabbit for a mascot ...
a big "Bravo!" to the marketing genius who thought up of that one.

2.
When I overeat at dinner, I turn on the Sixers to get a glance of Dee
Lynam to instantaneously throw up any food in my body and pass out from
looking at that troll. I've never seen such a train wreck of a woman.
For the love of God ... comb your hair, put on some makeup to cover up
your pock marks on your face and stop wearing blouses that show off
your grandmom cleavage. If I had the choice, I'd rather make love to
Tyrone Hill ... and I'm a heterosexual male.

Thank the Lord for comment sections.

Penn can't stop Chase Edmonds in loss to Fordham

BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.

Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).

Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.

Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.

Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.

Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.

Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate for the Phillies tonight and bats eighth. Alfaro has appeared in just four games since being called up earlier this month, and has just one hit in 10 at-bats. 

Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup and batting fifth. Pete Mackanin has said that Ryan Howard would get a lot of playing time during the last few games, but it is Joseph who gets the start tonight. Joseph is batting just .154 against the Mets this season. 

Odubel Herrera, who has been hitting well in September, will remain in the three spot. He has two homers and is batting .391 over the past week. Herrera has two hits in six at-bats against Mets' starter Sean Gilmartin.
