In Honor of the Bagel Boss Guy, Here’s Our Top Ten Short Philly Athletes

Kevin Kinkead - July 11, 2019

Look, I’ll be completely honest with you –

I’ve been dying to get the viral Bagel Boss video on this website, but I couldn’t think of a Philadelphia sports connection. That’s when a Twitter follower named Gary suggested that I put together a list of the best short Philly athletes in honor of the 5’0″ guy who went on a sensational rant inside a Long Island bagel joint the other day.

In case you’re living under a rock and haven’t seen this yet, video shows the guy ranting about women who make fun of his height on dating sites. He continues to spew random nonsense and eventually is tackled to the ground by another guy:

Another customer captured the aftermath of the altercation.

Turns out the bagel boss guy has another video on his Youtube channel where he berates a couple of 7/11 employees for the same reason.

I kind of feel bad for the guy for being that short, but listen man, that doesn’t give you the right to go around yelling a bunch of shit at people. Just get it together.

Looks like Inquirer/Daily News Columnist Stu Bykofsky is Taking a Buyout

Kevin Kinkead - July 11, 2019

Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News/Philly.com buyout and layoff update:

Longtime columnist Stu Bykofsky appears to be on his way out –

Bykofsky is a “Metro Columnist” who wrote about anything and everything. He’s been with the paper for 30+ years, having started in the late eighties, back when I was three years old and Guns and Roses had just released “Appetite for Destruction.”

He’s written something like a bazillion stories over the years, but you might be most familiar with the time he ate his column after predicting the Eagles would lose Super Bowl 52. When I say he “ate his column,” I mean he literally inserted the newspaper clipping into a Turkey hoagie and consumed it.

Redskins Insider Describes ‘Mass Exodus’ of Employees from the Organization: “Nobody Wants to Work There”

Kevin Kinkead - July 10, 2019

You just hate to see this.

According to Chris Russell, Redskins insider for 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Dan Snyder’s organization has seen a “mass exodus of employees in 2019.”

From The Fan’s website:

“Almost 40 employees behind the scenes have left since January, since they fired (Brian) Lafemina and his crew,” Russell told The Sports Junkies Wednesday.

“I’ve been told this by multiple, multiple people. Almost 40 people have left, behind the scenes. We’re not talking about football players or coaches or anything like that. … Nobody wants to work there. It’s a terrible culture.”

The Redskins fired President of Business Operations and COO Brian Lafemina in December less than eight months after hiring him. Chief Marketing Officer Steve Ziff, Senior VP of Consumer Sales Jake Bye, and Chief Commercial Officer Todd Kline also left the organization.

….

“Nobody wants to work there. Nobody believes in the direction and the leadership of that franchise.”

This is disappointing.

Tim Jernigan, Wearing His Own Jersey, Raps Under the Pseudonym “Stud Muffin”

Kevin Kinkead - July 8, 2019

Super Bowl champion Tim Jernigan returns to the Eagles this season on a one-year deal.

In addition to having an excellent gold grill, he is now a rapper, as Philly Voice points out:

Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan revealed this offseason that he’s launching a rap career with an outfit called Good Boyz Music Group.

Good Boyz has released six music videos in the last two months, including one for a song called “Come Thru,” where Jernigan raps in his Eagles jersey under the moniker Stud Muffin.

There’s a lyric referencing former Eagles kicker David Akers, who until now was probably the least likely Eagle to ever end up in a rap.

The song is terrible, just absolutely atrocious, but you should listen to it after the jump (Jernigan comes in at 0:38) –

Philadelphia Sports Power Couples: The Top Five

Kevin Kinkead - July 8, 2019

Glen Macnow asks the question:

It’s a good question, and I think it’s pretty obvious that the Zach and Julie Ertz have skyrocketed to the top of the Philadelphia sports power couple rankings. Actually, I think they were probably already there, so they simply solidified their place after Julie won another World Cup this weekend.

Who, then, is #2?

I think A.J. Feeley and Heather Mitts are #2 on my list. Rodney Peete married Philly native Holly Robinson, who was not an athlete but became a successful actress, so they could be added here. Randall Cunningham’s wife, Felicity, was a ballet dancer (he once dated Whitney Houston, but they didn’t marry). You could also go with Rocky Balboa and Adrian Pennino, if fake boxing is your thing. Somebody also mentioned Bryan Colangelo and Barbara Bottini as a Philly sports power couple, which made me laugh.

Glen got some other good replies, however, after the jump:

Ezekiel Elliott Won’t be Suspended

Kevin Kinkead - July 3, 2019

NFL statement:

Disgusting. Another Dallas Cowboy let off the hook by the NFL.

I personally believe that Zeke should have been suspended for the week 7 and week 16 games against the Eagles.

Go Birds.
