Rumor: Phish to Reunite @ Spectrum

Rumor: Phish to Reunite @ Spectrum

Back in December I mentioned a rumor that Phish could reunite at the Wachovia Spectrum on Halloween 2006.  Well Trey Anastasio is in town to play a solo show at the Electric Factory (Wednesday night) in support of his latest effort Bar 17.  Last Thursday's Inquirer talked to him about the new album.  I found the final quote interesting:

Bar 17 is an elegant and serious album. Yet dare him to pick a
date for a Phish reunion - an event the group's devoted fan base craves
- and Anastasio is back to teasing: "Dec. 23, 2006. Wachovia Spectrum.
I want to do it where the Flyers won the Stanley Cup."

Trey is a known Flyers fan and Phish has performed the national anthem at multiple Flyers games.  They have ties to former Flyer John LeClair who is
a Univeristy of Vermont alum.

The photo above features Trey on the right with Martin St. Louis holding up Lord Stanley's Cup.  It's from a 2004 private party with The Samples along with Phish.

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

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:

And:

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...
