Sixer Lee Nailon Arrested

Sixer Lee Nailon Arrested

Sixer All Star Lee Nailon was arrested yesterday for apparently beating his wife:

"It has come to our attention that Lee Nailon has been arrested today
by Lower Merion police on allegations of a domestic incident," Sixers
president and general manager Billy King said in a statement released
before last night's game. "We have no further details. Until we are
able to learn all the facts, it would be inappropriate for us to

The radio this morning was reporting that Nailon hit his wife in the face.  She then locked herself in the bathroom and called the police.  When police showed up to Nailon's home, he claimed that his wife was not home.  Um, yo Lee, your wife called the cops from the bathroom; you must have the brains to go along with your basketball skills. 

Nailon has seen action in 22 games this season and is averaging 4.2 points per outing for the Sixers.

From a Daily News article today, apparently being in jail didn't stop Nailon from making an appearance at the game last night:

Here's one way things were different last night: The Sixers issued a
brief statement concerning Lee Nailon, who was charged yesterday in
Lower Merion with simple assault and harassment and was in custody
pending a hearing this morning. Nailon was listed as inactive for the
game, but at halftime was shown on a taped message on the arena screens
welcoming the crowd.

The Sixers ended up beating Sacramento 109-103.

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

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

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.
