Joe Frazier in Hospice Care, Fighting Liver Cancer

Joe Frazier in Hospice Care, Fighting Liver Cancer

Joe Frazier is once again fighting. Unfortunately all of us, this time, it's against an opponent even his legendary left hook can't stop.

It is our sad duty this morning to bring you the news that Philadelphia boxing legend "Smokin'" Joe Frazier is in failing health. Reports broke Saturday evening that the former champ and all-time great has been taken to a Philadelphia-area hospice facility, and is in the final stages of an aggressive form of liver cancer.

Our condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

There's plenty that can and will be said about the career of Joe Frazier over the coming days. But, for now, we'll leave it to George Foreman to sum up what we all know, or at least should know, about one of the greatest competitors the sport has ever seen. Long before his lean-mean-fat-grillin' machines, you may remember Foreman as the A-No. 1 Baddest Man on the Planet. As he reveals below, there wasn't a single man on this earth—including Muhammad Ali—who scared him in the ring.

Save, of course, for Joe Frazier:

Ed Rendell, Jim Kenney roast Chris Christie for ripping Eagles fans

What a week it's been for Chris Christie. 

After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."

He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list. 

"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said. 

(Three fire emojis).

"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Boom. Roasted.

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

We finally found something (not great) about Joel Embiid: Manziel Buddy?

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.

He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.

It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.

The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."

Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right? 

Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:

After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:

[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.

More to this as we learn it...
