There's an old saying on the Internet that dates back hundreds of years: when it's the summer lull of MLB All-Star week, write blog posts about your hated rival.
So here we are, on the slowest sports day of the year. Let's talk about how rotten the Dallas Cowboys are.
Thankfully, veteran free agent running back DeAngelo Williams provided us with all of the ammunition we as Philly sports fans could ask for on a day like today.
Williams recently sat down with ESPN's Adam Schefter and mentioned a couple of teams he wouldn't want to play for, Dallas Cowboys included. Courtesy the folks at BleedingGreen:
The Cowboys, they win. They just don’t ever show up during the playoffs, though. Like they always disappear in the playoffs. I got a great depiction of the Cowboys fan base during the regular season last year. They were on cloud nine. You couldn’t tell them anything. Anything. Because they were gonna win the [championship], that’s all they said. Fans just got extremely super annoying.
And then the minute they lost, they either got cheated, somebody was hurt, the excuses start flowing, it’s just amazing to me, that fan base in general, they can’t handle defeat. Still to this day they say the Dez Bryant catch against the Green Bay Packers was a catch.
"Cowboys fans just got extremely super annoying" may be the most accurate thing ever in all of sports.
Thanks, DeAngelo. Free beers in Philly next time you cruise through.
Odell Beckham pretended to urinate on the Eagles’ home field, but it was Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall who may have crossed the line with his use of bodily fluids on Sunday.
Video shows the unidentified Eagles fan accuse Marshall of spitting on him amid a heated verbal exchange during pregame warmups. It’s unclear what compelled a six-time Pro Bowl selection to have words with some guy wearing a Randall Cunningham throwback jersey, but if Marshall did spit, it was after he was repeatedly challenged to a fight.
There is no visual confirmation as to whether Marshall spit on the man, either, as the footage appears to be shot on the first smart phone ever made. Marshall’s head does make a forward motion as if he were spitting. Then again, some people just have trouble controlling their saliva when they’re yelling, too, leaving open the small-percentage chance this was accidental spittle.
You be the judge.
Spit or not spit, it will be interesting to see if the Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field rethink their policy on allowing fans on the field before certain games after this little – ahem – spat.

Sometimes the internet is a wonderful place.
Since basically, no one wants to listen to Joe Buck call a thrilling Eagles 61-yard game-winning field goal, we scoured the web to find four other amazing versions of Sunday’s sensational ending to the Eagles' 27-24 victory over the New York Giants.
1. Merrill Reese and Mike Quick on 94.1 WIP
The legendary voice of the Eagles since 1977, Reese, along with former Eagle Mike Quick, delivers a call that will shoot shivers up your spine.
2. Spanish Broadcaster Ricky Ricardo
A longtime voice of the Phillies and now the Spanish voice of the New York Yankees, Ricardo delivers with this enthusiastic call.
A phenomenon that has taken over the web, adding inspirational music from Titanic makes everything just a little bit better.

A staple movie cliché from the '80s and '90s, the record scratch, freeze frame plays itself perfectly in this moment.
