The Delaware 87ers will wear awesome R2D2-inspired uniforms for Star Wars Night

The Delaware 87ers have gone out of this world for their latest promotion on Star Wars Night for this Friday's game against the Erie BayHawks at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark.

Not only will the first 1,500 fans get a Darth Vader poster but the team will wear these dope uniforms with an R2D2 motif. 

From the release:

Sevens players will wear special R2-D2 jerseys that will be auctioned off to fans to benefit Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. Twenty percent of tickets purchased using promo code NEMOURS here will also be donated to Nemours.

Fans can count on an out-of-this-world night! Upon entry, the first 1,500 people will receive a commemorative Darth Vader poster. Star Wars characters from local performance groups Garrison Carida (501st Legion) and Ghost Base (Rebel Legion) will fill the arena, and Jedi Master Yoda will serve as the public address announcer. All fans are encouraged to dress up as Star Wars characters and participate in a costume parade for the chance to win prizes.​

Yoda serving as the PA announcer? In the words of the great Tom McGinnis, "Kidding me! Are you?!"

Chip Kelly still jobless after swinging and missing with Jaguars

Chip Kelly still jobless after swinging and missing with Jaguars

Chip Kelly's job search continues.

The beloved (sarcasm) former Eagles head coach reportedly interviewed for the Jaguars' offensive coordinator opening. However, on Wednesday night, Jacksonville announced it was retaining Nathaniel Hackett as its OC.

“We are excited to announce Nathaniel Hackett as our offensive coordinator and he will immediately be tasked with installing and implementing our offense this offseason,” Jaguars new head coach Doug Marrone said in a statement from the team. “I have had the pleasure of working with Nathaniel for seven consecutive seasons and know firsthand how knowledgeable and passionate he is about winning.”

So, Kelly swung and miss twice on the Jaguars, as he reportedly interviewed for Jacksonville's head coaching job, as well.

"I’m not going to close the door on any opportunity, but I have to be very smart in what I do next,” Kelly said, via CSNBayArea.com, two days after his firing as 49ers head coach. “I don’t have to take anything, but I wouldn’t rule anything out. I need to make sure that I’m in the right situation.

“I don’t know what the future holds. I’ll do my due diligence. I’m not going to coach just to coach.”

Kelly's decline is staggering, even if you saw it coming.

Look at this NFL coaching history ...

With Eagles in 2013: 10-6, wild-card playoff berth
With Eagles in 2014: 10-6, missed playoffs
With Eagles in 2015: 6-9, fired before final regular-season game
With 49ers in 2016: 2-14, fired after regular season

Who knows what's next for the Chipper?

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 governor called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."

He can now add being torched by former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list. 

"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governor in the country," Rendell said. 

(Three fire emojis).

"In retrospect, the governor'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.

Rendell goes on to explain the difference between gritty Eagles fans who eat nails for breakfast and nerdy Cowboys fans that eat brie and drink wine on gameday.

"I once went down (to Dallas) to see a Cowboys-Eagles game," Rendell said. "I couldn't believe how blasé the fans were. First of all, they were drinking wine and eating brie. Now I venture to say that brie has never made its way inside of the Linc or Vet."
