The below video features legendary Eagles wide receiver, current radio voice, and my favorite Eagle growing up, Mike Quick, talking about Philadelphia football fans' passion, the old days at Veterans Stadium, and the Ubiq x Puma collaboration on their 700 Level Collection sneakers which were made in homage to the infamous upper bowl of the Vet (RIP).
The video isn't exactly new, but we stumbled upon it while doing research for our recent post on actor Ryan Phillippe rocking some sweet new Eagles' Nikes. We felt it deserved its own post. It's worth a watch.
At one point Quick starts talking about the crazy stuff that went on in the old section of the Vet that this here site is named after.
"In the 700 level, our camera guy every now and then he'd would come up with something that he pulled out of the 700 level," Quick reminisced. "It may be people getting it on, I mean getting it on... Having sex in the 700 level... All sorts of fights."
"In the 700 level you get it all," Quick said.
I like that. In the 700 level you get it all.
Perhaps the best part, immediately after Quick mentions people having sex in the 700 level of the Vet, the video switches to a super sexy shirtless Eagles fan. Thanks, I really needed that image.
Sixers head coach Brett Brown is in Australia this week, where he has accused longtime friend and former Australian men's national team assistant coach Shane Heal of defrauding him of $750,000, according to the Australian Associated Press.
Brown invested $250,000 into each of three companies for which Heal was the sole director. Brown wasn't given a legal title regarding the companies and didn't know the specifics of how the money would be used.
"I assumed that the money was going to be used for what Shane told me it was going to be used for," Brown said. "Because it was a friend that I had for 25 years."
Heal was charged last year by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission following an investigation relating to alleged misconduct in 2008, 2009 and 2010, according to the AAP.
The sides return to court in Brisbane on July 20.
Heal played in the NBA for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1996-97 and was with the San Antonio Spurs in 2003.
A day after going 0 for 5 with five strikeouts, Odubel Herrera is leading off for the Phillies in their series opener Friday night against the Reds (see game notes).
It's the first time Herrera is leading off since last Aug. 19, a span of 84 games.
Cesar Hernandez gets the night off. He's been dealing with a groin pull for 10 days, manager Pete Mackanin said Friday.
Andres Blanco bats second and plays second.
Maikel Franco is back in the six-hole after going 1 for 5 with two strikeouts in the cleanup spot Thursday. Tommy Joseph bats fourth and Michael Saunders fifth.
