You want to see the most fired up dude on the entire planet right now? That is YouTuber “EventStatus” in that video above. What got him all fired up? This video rant from YouTube favorite EDP445 after the Eagles lost to the Redskins in which he thanked the Redskins for putting an early end to the Eagles season. EventStatus did not care for that, and spent about fifteen minutes above letting it be known. There were times during that video that I got mad by osmosis, and there were other times where I was afraid. Dude is no joke ready to explode.
In fact, dude was so fired up that he broke EDP445 (Note: Below video is actually pretty depressing):
Do you see what this season has done to us? It’s not even week 17 … it’s not even Christmas … and we broke EDP445. What if he’s gone forever? What if he never comes back? Oh wait, never mind. He’s back.
Chip was Nasty McNastierson today:
Jeff McLane: “Would you feel confident in leaving Bradley Fletcher alone on Odell Beckham?”
Chip Kelly: “We haven’t talked about any of that, so… again…”
Jeff McLane: “I was just looking ahead to next game [since you said you didn’t want the season-ending questions].”
Chip Kelly: “Was that like a wise-ass comment?”
Kelly also took exception to questions about Mark Sanchez starting (Nick Foles is out again) and one on “what-ifs”.

K.J. McDaniels’ mom is not on board with the Sixers’ plan. We know this. But thanks to her attendance at last night’s Sixers vs. Magic game in Orlando, we also now know how she feels about free throws, half-court fan shots, and passing her son the ball.
First, when should they pass her son the ball? Always.
When it comes to when her son should pass the ball, the answer is never.
Free throws? They take too long.
Half-court shots to win a gift card? What are you, a chump?
She did much more than that, of course. She got removed from her seat and then reappeared elsewhere. She offered in depth, critical analysis. She took selfies. She’s a dream come true.
I know Scott O’Neil told us we’d be getting a mascot soon, but can we just fly K.J.’s mom up here and mic her up?
This moment needed Gus Johnson. Villanova won in overtime, 82-77. They are 11-0. \\//

After a week’s worth of “maybe” and “why haven’t they announced anything” and “Matt Kemp has old-man hips,” the trade between the Dodgers and Phillies for Jimmy Rollins is officially official.
As previously reported, the Phillies will send Rollins to L.A. and will receive minor league pitchers Zach Eflin and Tom Windle in return. The Phillies released a statement on the trade, and I think Chase Utley has something in his eye:
“The Dodgers are very lucky to acquire a player like Jimmy. I’ve said it time and time again that Jimmy makes everyone around him better. The team will miss his leadership on the field and his infectious smile, but most of all, I will miss our pre-game handshake.”
The trade will formally be announced in a press conference later today.
DUDE, THE SEASON IS NOT OVER! Everyone seems so down. Eagles win two, Cowboys get crushed by Colts, Eagles make playoffs, go to NFC Championship Game. Simple.*
Another one after the jump.
*Alternate take: The Eagles are going to lose again because they didn’t use Bradley Cooper.

When you’re down in Clearwater this year watching Phillies Spring Training, especially keeping an eye on [player name] and [player name] who we got in return for Jimmy Rollins, you’ll also be able to check out [player name] and [player name] of the Philadelphia Union.
According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, the Union have agreed to a multi-year deal that will bring their pre-season training camp to the Joe DiMaggio Complex in Clearwater, right across from the Phillies’ Brighthouse Field home. The Union’s pre-season training takes place in February. So when you’re checking out the anonymous dudes the Phillies invited down there (or just the guys you wish were anonymous), you can pop across the street and check out the anonymous dudes on the Union. They’re cool, I swear.
