Nnamdi Asomugha Injured Jeremy Maclin By Jumping on Him After Game-Winning Touchdown

Kyle Scott - December 11, 2012

Sometimes you just don’t need punchlines.

Jeremy Maclin’s groin injury has him limited in practice this week, but he still should play on Thursday. How did he hurt the groin, you ask? 

Nnamdi Asomugha, of course.

Maclin told reporters today that he got hurt when Nnamdi jumped on him after the game-winning touchdown on Sunday.

From the looks of it (watching the replay in slow-mo several times), Nnamdi didn’t connect very hard with the groin. Rather, he put his weight awkwardly on Maclin, which we’re guessing is what caused the injury.

Oh, fine:

 

There it is.

Jeremy Maclin Out on Sunday

Kyle Scott - September 21, 2012

Bit of a surprise here– Jeremy Maclin will not play on Sunday due to his hip pointer, Andy Reid announced this morning.

King Dunlap and Riley Cooper are also out. Cooper’s hair will be missed, but Dunlap and his slow-ass legs won’t be.

Jeremy Roenick Rips Yinz (Again)

Yesterday, before the Flyers embarrassed the Penguins in front of their Halloween party fans, Jeremy Roenick spoke with Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow on WIP about the Penguins and their fans.

The grammaticals, for your reading enjoyment:

“A lot of Penguins fans today on Twitter, telling me I don’t know my ass from my elbow. They’re kind of crazy. I wonder how many games they played in the National Hockey League. But, I guess they know better than I do.”

“I only broke my jaw, and broke my nose, and broke all my fingers, and broke my ankle and broke my toes. Yeah, I didn’t win a Cup, but I still battled in it, though. But I guess they can tell me what I don’t know and what I do now. It’s amazing… it’s amazing. It’s amazing to me. It’s also amazing to say what a loser I am, you know. I just played 27 holes at Donald Trump’s golf course. Had a great time today, getting ready for the best time of the year, playoffs. And these people are tweeting me, probably from their rock breaking jobs or toilet bowl cleaning jobs, telling me what I don’t know and what I do know. It’s amazing to me. It’s amazing to me. It’s amazing.”

“Isn’t it amazing? I don’t have a life and I’m such a loser, but I can still go out and play golf in 55 degree weather.”

“Didn’t you know, you can’t do that. You can’t say anything bad about the Penguins or Sidney Crosby or Malkin or anybody. You’ve got to be very, very quite. You’ve got to make sure you respect them.”

“They’re probably the best players in the league. I’ll take Malkin over Crosby seven days a week. But if you offered me Giroux? I’ll take a Giroux, or a Hartnell.”

 

This should go over well.

Jeremy Roenick Also Thinks That The Penguins are a Bunch of Whiners

Kyle Scott - April 11, 2012

Peter Laviolette.

Mike Milbury.

Craig Berube

John Tortorella.

Jeremy Roenick.

What do all of these guys have in common? No, they're not all awkward-haired, aging 1990sish hockey personalities. They all think the Penguins suffer from vaginal discomfort.

Over the last two years we have – rightfully – taken exception with Roenick– in 2010 he cried on national TV after the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, and last year he sat by idly as Jay Mohr lambasted Philly fans on a show that – I think – may have already been cancelled.

Consider this redemption for JR.

Appearing on Puck Daddy’s Marek vs. Wysh radio show, Roenick was asked about the Penguins. It turns out that he too thinks they are a bunch of whining, sissy, silly fucks from the Shit City. Or something like that:  [via Puck Daddy]

"Pittsburgh's untouchable. Let's just get that straight. If you say something bad about them, they're going to complain, they're going to whine, they're going to revolt against you. The fans, they going to bitch-slap you all over Twitter. They're gonna attack you. God help everybody if you say anything negative about the Pittsburgh Penguins. They're like the almighty.

“They're a phenomenal team. I love watching their team. I love watching Malkin and Crosby and all them. But you can't say anything bad about them and not get backlash, complaining from those camps. I wish they'd just go and play and we can all have fun watching them. Think they have the best chance to win the Cup.

"I wouldn't have apologized. I don't know if I would have said exactly what Mike Milbury said, but he did and he had to apologize. I don't know if I could, if I believed it. Um, that's just me. You know, Mike does things his way.

"I don't understand why John Tortorella [got] fined. That's his opinion. I can't stand in the National Hockey League how they can just throw fines when they want when they don't like when something that’s said. I thought it was freedom of speech in the United States”

 

Yes. Yeeeessss, JR. That’s what I like to see.  

Leave it to Roenick to complain about someone getting reprimanded for, well, complaining. He’s right, though. The NHL tried to say that Tortorella was fined last week for cursing, not for his comments about the Penguins. Somehow, that’s hard to believe. Roenick knows it. You know it. And you’re damn straight the Sidney Crosby Handjob Network, NBC, knows it too. So keep an eye out for some serious Pittsburgh bias over the next few weeks.

Listen to Roenick’s comments after the jump. Or, better yet, listen to the entire Marek vs. Wysh radio show here. The choice, it’s yours.

Your Thursday Morning Roundup: Jeremy Roenick Loses His Shit, Sixers Just Lose, D-Jac, and More

Kyle Scott - March 1, 2012

Good day, sports fans. I do apologize for what has been a slow few weeks here– both Drew and I have been under the weather and there hasn't been much going on from a blog perspective. We expect things to pick up soon now that the two worst months of the year are over. The cold, frigid (though this year Al Gore provided us some warmth) months of January and February are finished. We can move on to baseball, meaningful hockey and… well, the Sixers stumbling like a nerdy kid trying to leg out a triple in kickball.

Last night the Sixers lost for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, sixth time in seven games… and that’s not the Here Come The Sixers pun I wanted to make.

However, there was one positive takeaway: Malik Rose’s #shitmaliksays had a good night, highlighted by this gem while James Harden was choking on free throws:

Excellent
. Glad to see Malik has kept up the full court press as we get into the dog days of, um, I guess March.

– DeSean Jackson shut down Gucci last night. I’m not up on all things thug, but I assume this means they either “stayed so late they closed the store” or “it was shut down because celebs were in the house.” I don’t care to research further.

– Good article on Mike Richards and Jeff Carter being reunited.

– Here’s a grainy pic of Shane Victorino, Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon shooting a March Madness spot for TNT. The network, along with CBS, will be featuring celebs and athletes in spots throughout March.

– Finally, when a friend told me yesterday that Jeremy Roenick was advertising the Harley that he is selling on eBay through his Twitter page, I wondered why I couldn’t see the update myself. It turns out it's because JR blocked me following this somewhat heated exchange with your friendly neighborhood blogger. Sad.

Anyway, JR was back at it again yesterday, first telling off fans on Twitter…

… and then a hilariously heated exchange with Mike Milbury on NBC Sports Comcast Whatever The Fuck. Video after the jump.

Jeremy Maclin Uses Twitter to Score The Eagles Some Free…

Kyle Scott - November 30, 2011

Screen Shot 2011-11-30 at 9.28.37 AM

Two things I love (to blog about): media fights and athletes displaying Twitter entitlement.

Continuing in a long line (read: now two) of local athletes asking for things on Twitter, Jeremy Maclin used his social standing to score a few freebies.

In September, Mike Stutes took to the Tweets to land himself a free Range Rover. As you know, they don’t just give those things away, but the folks at Land Rover Main Line were happy to help, and we chronicled the encounter. Maclin, understanding the power of the pseudo-celeb Twitter account, wanted to get in on the action. So what did he request: A car? A Home? Ice? Tickets? Sex?!?

Nope– doughnuts. He requested doughnuts.

Let’s break it down:

Translation: I’m hungry and want to feed a bunch of equally famished athletes. Surely I don’t have to pay for this.

 

Screen Shot 2011-11-30 at 9.26.34 AM

Translation: Here, let me Google that for you.

 

Screen Shot 2011-11-30 at 9.31.17 AM

Translation: There’s a break in my logic. There’s a KK near me, but for some reason I am now doubting your willingness to assist. I play football.

Jeremy Maclin Trash Talks the Giants, Sort Of

Kyle Scott - September 21, 2011

Jeremy_maclin

Oh hey, Wednesday. This sounds about right:

Earlier in the week, Giants safety Antrel Rolle went on the radio and said he wanted Michael Vick to play this week so he doesn't hear any excuses when they beat the Eagles.

Today, Jeremy Maclin had this to say: [Philly Sports Daily]

"A lot of people talk because they’re insecure or scared…he’s talking so that says something."

 

Not exactly Shady-Usi, but still good.

Game on Sunday, 1 PM. We have two club level tickets to give away (with VIP parking pass). Coming up shortly in our Six Pack.
