Your Monday Morning Roundup: Ray Lewis Goes Away Now, Right?

Kyle Scott - February 4, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-02-04 at 8.37.46 AM

It’s a good thing the Ravens won because, had they lost, I’m pretty sure John Harbaugh would have killed that guy in the suit who, ostensibly, was to blame for the power outage. That, or Harbaugh would have had Ray Lewis stab him in the dark. 

Is anyone else really glad that it’s over? That we don’t have to see Ray Lewis moan and cry and praise God and all that shit? Like, there’s a high-probability that he killed two men, and was using a banned substance to play in the Super Bowl. Him, that goofy thing on his arm and his Shredder mask can all go fuck themselves. 

Let’s hit it.

The roundup

– Allen Iverson, not a good daddy. Here’s what a judge had to say about his parenting skills: [TMZ]

"[Iverson] does not know how to manage the children; has little interest in learning to manage the children and has actually, at times, been a hindrance to their spiritual and emotional growth and development.

For example, he has refused to attend to an obvious and serious alcohol problem, which has caused him to do inappropriate things in the presence of the children while impaired. 

He has left the children alone without supervision. He has left his young daughters in a hotel room with men who are unknown to the mother."


– Hey, Phil Sheridan is already getting on Chip Kelly’s big balls: [Philly.com]

But since his initial and largely positive first impression, Kelly has pretty much vanished. He emerged, groundhog-like, for one early morning appearance at a radio event Friday, but otherwise he has been working (we hope) on the answers to the next round of questions.

It isn't clear why Kelly declined to announce his hires as he made them. He succeeded mostly in annoying fans eager to understand his vision while forcing grown men in Eagles gear to spend weeks pretending they don't work for the Eagles, at least in public. 

 

– Philly.com is testing out a new service (they love trying hokey web things), called Slidermetrix, which allows you to rate Super Bowl commercials in real-time. Sort of like what CNN does during presidential debates, a slider allows you to continuously give feedback on commercials. Gimmicky, but pretty cool

Interesting article on how CBS handled the power outage. Will Leitch skewers job they did. The Atlantic gives in-depth details on why it happened.

– Apparently, there a fight at Xfinity Live! last night. Here’s a pic from anonymous tipster and an unrelated Tweet. Were you there? Have more information? Let us know.

Eagles Running Back Dion Lewis Was Arrested This Weekend After Getting Drunk and Pulling a Fire Alarm at a Hampton Inn

Kyle Scott - July 9, 2012

Screen Shot 2012-07-09 at 1.34.39 PM

Are you ready for some football?! A July afternoon party. We've got booze and alarms and Hampton Inns and Jesus Christ what the fuck are we talking about? 

Our first official bit of Eagles news this summer, and it’s a blasty. 

Backup running back Dion Lewis, 21, and his brother, Lamar, 35, got drunk this weekend and locked themselves out of a Hampton Inn in Albany, where they were staying, forcing them to pull the fire alarm. The plan completely backfired (jokes!): [Times Union]

The incident unfolded around 4 a.m., when Lewis and his brother, Lamar Lewis, were locked out of the Hampton Inn on Chapel Street, police said. The two men, who police say were intoxicated, then tried to get back into the hotel, but the sliding glass door to the lobby was locked, Officer Steve Smith said.

According to the police report, Dion and Lamar Lewis struck the doors "with such force as to rock them and nearly break them from their hinges." They then pulled on the alarm outside the hotel's lobby, the report said.

 

I almost read the original story as “Lewis pulled a fire arm,” not fire alarm, which, somehow, would have been more expected from an NFL player doing anything at 4 a.m.

Lewis and his brother were charged with falsely reporting a fire (a felony) and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. 

*In completely unrelated (yet totally related) news, I had a dream that Michael Vick and his now wife Kijafa confronted me about not giving QB 7 and his recent streak of good citizenship a fair shake. That’s it. That was the whole dream and I wanted to tell you about it.

UPDATE: Lewis wants to put out… the fire. He says not to be… alarmed about his behavior:

"I want to apologize to my family, the Albany community, the Eagles organization and fans, and to the NFL for my involvement in an incident this past weekend. It was never my intention to cause any public alarm or damage any property. I am sorry for any embarrassment and inconvenience that my actions have caused. I am committed to continuing to conduct myself in conformance with the high moral, ethical and professional standards that I have my entire life and of which so many others rightly expect of me. Because the matter is still in the hands of the court system, I cannot comment any further."

Here all week, folks.

Eagles running back Dion Lewis weighed in on the Penn State scandal. Hey, what happened up there, anyway?

A quick sampling of responses:

U should focus on returning kicks. Enough there 4 U 2 worry bout

too soon man…focus on running ball back more than 10 yards….

You are an idiot and a disgrace with a comment like this.

 

He quickly changed his tune:

Yeah, that should smooth things over.
