Most Hated Athlete: Terrell Owens

GQ asked pro athletes who are the 10 most hated among them and who do you think came in at number one?   You guessed it, Terrell Owens.

1. Terrell Owens
Owens after beating the New York Giants, November 2004.
Unsportsmanlike conduct:
Behavior detrimental to the team
Bonus points for:
Contract-negotiating high jinks, telling Eagles coach Andy Reid to
“shut up,” telling offensive coordinator Brad Childress not to speak to
him unless spoken to, falsely outing 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia,
suggesting Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was responsible for their
2005 Super Bowl loss, suggesting the Eagles would win more if Brett
Favre was their quarterback, employing Drew Rosenhaus as an agent,
fighting with ex-teammate and team ombudsman Hugh Douglas, asking if
anyone else in the locker room “wants a piece of me”… Oh, fuck it.

Oh T.O., we will always love your ego maniacal ways and will miss your end zone celebrations dearly.  Also cracking the top 5 were some athletes with Philly connections, Kobe Bryant and Curt Schilling.  I used to be a Schilling fan, but after turning on the Red Sox and listening to too much of Shil's media whoring, I can agree with him making the list.  Kobe is Fredo to me after claiming no Philly connections back in 2001.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, there was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Eagles and Cowboys will face off on Sunday Night Football, when we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
