ugh

ugh

I'd like to thank the Eagles and particularly Winston Justice for sobering me up after a day of celebratory boozing and generally feeling on top of the world. Fans of both the Phils and the Birds will have to look past a horrible defeat at the hands of yet another division rival (and we haven't even seen Dallas yet) and focus on the positivity that the Phillies gave us. But we're not great at that, and it's tough to overlook the awful game on SNF. Osi Umenyiora made Justice his mark, blowing past him and sacking Donovan McNabb six times, half of the Giants TWELVE total. So much for Justice being a 2nd round steal in last year's draft. Twelve sacks ties an NFL record.

It's hard to imagine a team going from the highs of last week's offensive output against the Lions to barely moving the ball against what had been a weak Giants D. The G-Men have definitely improved, but not nearly this much. I don't even think JRoll could have helped the Eagles tonight. And I really don't know how much we can expect from this team from here on out. We've seen one great game and three downright terrible showings. It's not looking good...

But screw it, let's focus on the those Phightens!

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?

Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.

Enter Mike Trout.

The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.

First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?

And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.

We can dream, right?
