Reid takes vacation, Doesn't remember pants

Reid takes vacation, Doesn't remember pants

Ok, So maybe I made up the part about the pants, but he did take a nice vacation.  I'm sure it was much nicer than your last vacation.. Sure tops the beating I took in Vegas.

He does actually open up a little in this piece and enjoys a few whale blowings.

Andy Reid is not who you think he is. He is not really the uncommunicative, yep-nope, time-is-yours guy you see on your television screen during those sleep-inducing day-after-the-game news conferences. Get him away from that sterile auditorium at the NovaCare Complex, get him away from the television minicams and the media packs and, honest to God, he's a terrific interview. Put him in an island paradise like Maui, with a view of the South Pacific in front of him and eggs Benedict on crab on his breakfast plate and the guy can be downright funny, engaging, candid and yes, even informative. "Wow, did you see that?" Reid said after spotting a pair of whales off in the distance. "See them out there? The one just blew. There he goes again. See it?"

Cat-lover Ben Simmons raises his 2 Savannah cats to support #RaiseTheCat

Cat-lover Ben Simmons raises his 2 Savannah cats to support #RaiseTheCat

It all started with a simple tweet at 1:58 p.m.

Ben Simmons asked his Twitter following about the cat.

One hour and 19 minutes later, Simmons decided to participate himself.

With his two Savannah cats.

For those out of the loop, Sixers fan @GipperGrove started the social media movement — one we can surely affirm is one the world has never seen before — in which fans raise their cats after each Sixers win, which there have been plenty of recently.

The Sixers won their third straight game on Friday night, squeaking out a 93-92 win over the Trail Blazers and are now 8-2 in their last 10 games. Joel Embiid is legit, and this team, in Year 4 of The Process, is making basketball great again in Philly. And all of this without Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 overall pick who's still rehabing a Jones fracture in his right foot.

To celebrate Simmons' cat-raising, @GipperGrove pinned this to his Twitter page.

#RaiseTheCat lives on.
