Bryce Harper, Carson Wentz, Rhys Hoskins, and Their Better Halves Took in the Sixers Game

Russ Joy - April 5, 2019

The Sixers were coming off a stretch of relatively meaningless games, including losses to Dallas Mavericks on Monday and Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. The Phillies had an off-day following a gut-wrenching bullpen-induced collapse to the Washington Nationals. With all eyes on Thursday night’s nationally-televised game on TNT, it made sense that the city’s biggest stars would converge under the Wells Fargo Center roof to take in the Sixers’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks, who own the best record in the entire NBA.

Then it happened. We saw Carson Wentz chumming it up with Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins. They weren’t alone. Here’s an even better shot of Harper with his new #Phamily:

This warms my heart. It’s nice to see the heroes of our city out with their better halves. Bryce’s wife Kayla is absolutely beaming and I have to think the #phamily celebrated the news of the couple’s pregnancy. Sure, the Sixers lost, but it’s just a game. I’m looking forward to the next Phillies’ home game when Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner chill in the Diamond Club with Mr. and Mrs. Wentz.

Phillies Fan Loses Wager, Hands Out Chicken Nuggets

Kevin Kinkead - September 20, 2017

The only thing better than a chicken nugget is a free chicken nugget.

And the only thing better than a free chicken nugget is eating it while watching the Phillies beat up on the Dodgers for a second-straight game.

A bunch of kids had that pleasure Tuesday night, thanks to a Phils fan who lost an online wager:

Damon Miller Jr. made his bet last Thursday, which held up for all of two innings. Rhys Hoskins belted a 91 MPH fast ball out of the park in the bottom of the second, good for his 18th homer in 34 games. The Phils won 10-0.

So Miller was now on the hook for nuggets, but the wager language was vague. Who is “everyone?” Does the entire stadium get nuggets? Are they coming from Chick-fil-A or Wendy’s or what?

Unlike overly-political celebrities, or that guy who promises to tattoo (subject) on his ass if (team) wins or loses a game, Miller actually followed through with some help from the Phillies. The team bought 50 boxes of McDonald’s nuggs and had Miller hand them out at the first base gate.

Miller spoke with The Good Phight about his experience:

“(The Phillies) set up the entire thing, which I’m extremely grateful for!”

“I was actually at the game when (Hoskins hit the home run) and my first reaction was I looked at my dad and said DID THAT JUST HAPPEN!? I OWE EVERYONE NUGGETS NOW!”

Good man, much better than Lena Dunham, who said she’d leave the country after Trump won the election. She’s still here.
