Rocky's Robe Heads to Smithsonian

Rocky's Robe Heads to Smithsonian

In the original Rocky, Paulie got $3,000 for Rocky to put the logo of the meat-packing place he worked at, Shamrock Meats, on the robe Rocky wears.  What is believed to be that same robe is headed to the Smithsonian.

Rocky Balboa's boxing robe and gloves will share the same home as
Dorothy's ruby red slippers, Abraham Lincoln's top hat and Thomas
Edison's light bulb.

Actor and director Sylvester Stallone Tuesday donated memorabilia
from his "Rocky" movies to the Smithsonian's National Museum of
American History.

"I knew I was getting old, but I didn't think I would be with the
dinosaurs so soon," Stallone said, laughing. "No, actually, I'm really
unbelievably overwhelmed."

Stallone, 60, wore the red and yellow boxing robe in 1976's "Rocky."
He also donated a black hat and a pair of autographed boxing gloves
from "Rocky II" and shoes and his red, white and blue boxing shorts
from "Rocky III."

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
