This might be my favorite TMZ headline ever, but I think it obscures the lede. Never mind that LeSean McCoy and Mike Jerrick entering a frame containing Kacie McDonnell might make you worry about Kacie’s well-being, the real story here is that Shady has apparently never heard of a green screen and seems to be genuinely amazed by a teleprompter. That, or he’s just speechless around Kacie and her Finnish Flag dress. No one ever said running backs were smart.
And why yes, I do hate July.

Unfortunately, we can no longer in good faith believe in the legend of “Who wants to sex Mutombo.” But when the sports gods close one door, they open another, in the form of new 76er Joel Embiid in a car with a smaller, whiter person:
White kid: “I’m like 5’10″ and I got a seven inch dick.”
Embiid: “You never do that shit you know?”
Off camera: “Who’s got a bigger dick?”
Embiid: “OF COURSE ME! I’M THE N*GGA”
Barstool has the video here. And with this, we know in our heart of hearts, that Hinkie made the right call. Also, as a side note, there’s no way Embiid is wrong here.
I think not probably.
Thanks to reader Mike for passing along this photo, taken from Facebook, of a few Rangers bros who, for some reason, thought it would be a good idea to put a Rangers flag around Rocky (dated June 1, six weeks after the Flyers series) in advance of the Stanley Cup Finals. Hey guys, how’s that working out for you?

Oh. Another former Flyer. Cool. Continue reading
The Eagles traded out of the 22nd pick and Johnny Manziel down to 26 to get OLB Marcus Smith. Talk about anticlimactic.
Eh. Probably deserved it.

Keith Olbermann named the Flyers’ social media person his Worst Person in the Sports World last night for their unfriend your Rangers fan friends campaign (which I thought was delightfully endearing*). He also implied that you cawnt matt reid dis:
“Very much a waste of time. Flyers fans, on Facebook? Don’t you have to be able to read to use Facebook?!”
I laughed. Olbermann grew up in New York and is presumably very much a Rangers fan. Nothing wrong with a friendly swipe at the opposition. You may deposit your faux outrage here_________.
*It also led me to discover that I, too, am a fan of the Rangers on Facebook. I think I “liked” them to get updates sometime around the Winter Classic. That, or I am the sports world’s greatest sleeper cell and was planted here in 2009, waiting for this exact moment with which to strike.
LONG LIVE MESSIER!. LET’S GO RANGERS! POTVIN SUCKS! SAM ROSEN FOR LIFE!

The Flyers have signed 2012 third round draft pick defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere (I’m never going to be able to spell that, so Ghost it is) to an entry-level contract. Ghost, who is 20, was the MVP of the Frozen Four, which was played in Philadelphia this weekend. He led his Union team to their first ever National Championship, scoring one goal and two assists in the championship game.
Ghost, an offensive defenseman, will play the final few games this season with the Phantoms.
I’ve watched him play exactly zero times, but hardcore OBs seem to be pretty excited about him. So now I am excited, too… mostly because the Flyers have a guy called Ghost. Our t-shirt printer is just shaking his damn head right now at the thought of making Casper-inspired shirts. Boooooooooooooooooooo.
UPDATE: Ghost will also be among the Flyers’ Black Aces (minor leaguers who practice – and in some cases play – with team during playoffs). He won’t be eligible to play in a game, though, since his contract doesn’t kick in until next season. But still… now we have a Black Ace named Ghost. Yes. I’m giddy.
