No More Geno's Whiz Wit at CBP

No More Geno's Whiz Wit at CBP

Sure, we all love a good Geno's whiz wit, but when you are at a baseball game you eat hot dogs.  Geno's told the Phillies to go fly a kite.  The Phillies will replace the Geno's spot with Rick's Steaks which resides in the Reading Terminal, a disciple of Pat's.  I can't vouch for Rick's but I'll be sure to give a full report once I give it a go.  Do not fret hungry fans, there is still the Schmitter, Bull's BBQ, and Tony Luke's Pork Italian, not to mention the foot long Hatfield Franks.

Hey, you can always look on the bright side, the Chikie's and Pete's crab fry stand has doubled in size!

Also of interest, the Phillies are targeting college aged fans by throwing Rooftop Thursdays this year at CBP.  Complete with bull riding, beach days, and free Xbox usage.  While the beach days may seem like a good idea to attract the Delilah's of the 215 on a sunny day in South Philly, I'm afraid it will attract more Ralphie's from the Northeast who weigh 295.

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Another award: Carson Wentz named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month

Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.

The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.

Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.

The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.

It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.

While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.

This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.

The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Watch: Joel Embiid can't get over how much he trusts the process

Joel Embiid really trusts the process. 

And he'll tell you as much over and over.

In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.

By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.

And he does. Trust the process.
