Philadelphia Eagles Rookie Dinner Ended With a Mere $17,747.86 Bill

We aren’t sure if Eagles second-year man Lane Johnson actually forced rookies to pay for all of this, but it sure appears that way. In keeping with tradition, the Eagles ran up a dinner bill of over $17k at Del Frisco’s steakhouse in Philadelphia and the rookie (or rookies) were most likely left paying the tab. 19 Remy Martin Louis XIII shots? I’m not even mad, I’m impressed...

Gregg Popovich On A/C Failure: “Hopefully We Can Pay Our Bills”

Game 1 of the NBA Finals went down in San Antonio last night and the big buzz around the series opener wasn’t the Heat, it was the heat.

Tampa Bay Rays Celebrate With Pony In The Dugout

The Tampa Bay Rays have the worst record in baseball this season but that hasn’t stopped them from having some fun. During yesterday’s 11-6 loss to the Marlins, the Rays broke out a pony head on a stick and had some fun galloping around the dugout. It was pretty outstanding and I’m hoping it makes a return soon but, judging from their performance on the field this year, those...
