A few World Series rings were stolen from Citizens Bank Park during game two of the NLDS, have you heard? Well the story is about as awesome as one could expect.
According to 6 ABC, 21-year-old Matt Marvine was kicked out of the game for acting like an idiot. Nothing new there. He was wearing a mask with "Rockies Killer" on it. But instead of exiting the building, he somehow ended up in a Phillies office filling out an application for a job. Totally what I would do! He fills out the job app and takes off with an envelope that had three World Series rings in it.
Here's the best part: "Police were able to track down Marvine quickly because he left his job
application behind, complete with his name, address and phone number."
No word on whether he got the job or not.
Update: Philly.com has plenty more, "Police said Mervine has been arrested before, on drug and carjacking charges." Shocker.
Sixers point guard T.J. McConnell is doubtful for Wednesday's home game against the Raptors with a right wrist sprain.
McConnell was in a splint at practice Tuesday and said he would try to play but would leave it up to the medical staff.
McConnell is averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in 38 games. The Sixers went 5-2 in the last seven games he started before his injury, and won 113-104 in Milwaukee without him. Sergio Rodriguez started at PG in McConnell's place and had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Chasson Randle backed up the point and had 10 points and a pair of threes.
Joel Embiid did not practice Tuesday (rest) and is listed as probable for Wednesday night when the Sixers (13-26) host the Raptors (27-13).
“Joel Embiid ... was a little bit, had the flu,” Brett Brown said.
Jahlil Okafor (probable) did not participate in practice and received treatment. Brown said Okafor had soreness. Gerald Henderson is also probable and had an individualized workout Tuesday.
So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.
It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
