Went scouring the internet for some real Eagles news or something interesting to post and Vick with Sanchez’s hair is all I could find. No news is good news, I guess. Everybody’s focused on beating the shit out of the Lions in the snow and I like that.
Besides, it IS a funny picture. As Eagles and Jets fans we can both get together and laugh about our former QBs since we’re both doing so much better without them anyhow. Us with Nick Foles and you guys with Geno Sm…oh I forgot.
I’m…I’m so sorry.
GO BIRDS. Random tailgate Barstool flag photo emailed to us:
Also — does Howard Eskin still get pussy? Smart money’s on yes. Need Spike to confirm.
Really gotta give it to the Eagles for the whole #FlyEaglesFly campaign — they’ve hired the perfect video production team. The Eagles have tremendous official website video content and much of it is movie/ESPN quality. The newest video from FlyEaglesFly is no different.
Also enjoy the newest Eagles splash cartoon as a bonus. LET’S GO BIRDS.
ACCT – The dog kennels at ACCT Philly are currently full to capacity of wonderful, adoptable dogs! Stop by one of this weekend’s adoption events or the shelter to meet them!

This is a little out of my wheelhouse since I’m not as much of a dog person as some of the bloggers, but I still have a heart. If they’re at capacity that can only mean bad things for any dogs who need an immediate home. You can adopt or even FOSTER an ACCT dog and it could mean the difference between life or death or some of these pups.
If you’ve been thinking about getting a dog (especially a Pitbull) now as in this weekend is the best time.
So I just realized that you are the only one that blogged about Nelson Mandela yesterday. Not a single other blogger acknowledged him except for a couple tweets making fun of people that don’t know the difference between Mandela and Morgan Freeman. Meanwhile Paul Walker, a dude whose name I honestly did not know (someone had to refer to him as “that guy from the Fast and Furious movies” for me to know who died) gets a dozen blogs and everyone is treating it is the biggest tragedy since Nam. The guy was a mediocre actor in a movie series that was entertaining but not amazing while Nelson Mandela might have been one of the most influential people in our lifetimes, if not ever.
Is that racist or just reflective of the fact that stoolies care more about pop culture than real life? Or actually do I want to know? I’m genuinely not sure which I’d rather hear…
I think there’s a lot to it. First of all the Paul Walker RIP blogs — while grounded in some genuine sadness — were mostly sarcastic. I mean nobody’s happy the dude from Fast and the Furious died but c’mon…he’s the dude from Fast and the Furious and he died in a high speed Porsche accident. There’s a layer of sick humor in there.
As far as to why Nelson Mandela hasn’t gotten any love — hard to say exactly. Barstool does a pretty good job of being apolitical (unless you’re selling Ronald Reagan ads, I guess), and rarely gets serious or dedicates a post to any off-topic death. Is it a shame that a lot of us care more about pop culture than actual real life things? Yes. It’s fucking horrible. But it is what it is. People don’t come to Barstool to read Mandela eulogies and reminisce over the horrors of apartheid. They come for tits, sports, and laughs. Sure if somebody in America got a paper cut from a terrorist attack we’d be all over it, but Nelson wasn’t American and his only sports connection was with rugby. Plus he was black. And any literate person can read through the comments section and see how black people are talked about here.
I feel for your concern which is why I blogged it, but you can’t be surprised. Did you really expect a collective Barstool kumbaya Mandela vigil?
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Temple University says it is cutting seven sports programs in 2014, including baseball, women’s rowing and softball, among others. Nine coaches will lose their jobs. The university said Friday the decision to cut the sports, which also include men’s indoor and outdoor track and field, men’s crew and men’s gymnastics, was the culmination of the school’s underfunded athletic department and its large number of sports that it does field. Athletic Director Kevin Clark announced the decision after nearly a year of reviewing the department’s offerings. He said 150 student-athletes will be affected and those under scholarship will be able to transfer out without having to sit out a year. The last time Temple cut programs was in 1986, when it eliminated eight sports.
Bullshit. Complete and utter bullshit. Hey, you want to cut the cord on women’s rowing and men’s crew, knock yourself out. North Philly can even survive without seeing little white dudes in leotards flopping around on the gymnastic mats. But baseball?!?!?!? If GuntSoxDave can achieve his dream of bullpen catching at the D-III level, there’s no excuse for elimating the sport from any major D-I university. We’ve seen it recently where Towson and Cal were about to lose their baseball programs but alumni and fans rallied to the rescue, and hopefully a similar situation arises here.
Losing softball and track is unacceptable, too, but if this losing the baseball program is the result of some sort of Title IX horseshittery there should be riots from Girard Ave to Mt. Airy.
UPDATE: Fucking ruthless:
DM – Jay Z celebrated his 44th birthday with his leading lady Beyoncé by his side on Wednesday. The power couple have decided to go vegan for 22 days, and this was day two of their plant-based challenge. As they strive to become more spiritual, the pair opted to eat at Café Gratitude, where each dish is an affirmation.
Yup, not all cocaine dealers-slash-rappers get shot or end up in jail. Sometimes they end up with almost a billion dollars and take part in 22-day vegan challenges while eating sticks and leaves in West Hollywood on their 44th birthday while sitting across from a woman dressed like pepperoni pizza. Hip Hop is Bread.
Also, this 100% has to be the same place that Shiloh worked at in Grandma’s Boy.
Fake? Probably. You can’t believe ANYTHING you see on the Internet anymore. Girl catches fire while twerking. Michael Vick breaks his legs in a car accident. Mo lives in Philly. Lies. All lies. But you just have to love the realistic dialogue between the husband and his skank. Catch your wife naked in your own bed getting railed by some random dude? First reaction, other than rightfully ruin everyone’s lives by getting it on camera and making it go viral:
“Beds never get made around here…there’s nothing to eat in the fridge.”
Men have priorities. You can get stuffed from here to East Jabip, but you damn well better keep up with your housewife duties or else.
gamespot – One United Kingdom teenage did not get what he expected from a recent eBay purchase. 19-year-old United Kingdom resident Peter Clatworthy paid £450 +£8 shipping (around $750) for a piece of paper he thought was an Xbox One as part of an eBay scam, The Nottingham Post reported today. Clatworthy, a student from Bilborough, said he saved up to buy the limited edition Day One system as a Christmas gift for his young son. The auction listing stated it was for a photo of the console, not the system itself. However, Clatworthy said he still expected to receive the Xbox One because the item was listed in the “video games and consoles” category on eBay. “I looked at the seller’s feedback and there was nothing negative. I bought it there and then because I thought it was a good deal,” he said. “It’s obvious now I’ve been conned out of my money.” He has since brought the matter to eBay’s attention. The auction site looked into the case and told Clatworthy he will receive a full refund thanks to PayPal’s coverage for such scenarios. “We don’t allow listings which mislead, and will take action against this seller,” the company said.
Suckers getting scammed always brings a smile to my face, but nothing tops this guy getting a barely-color printout of an Xbox. It’s as if opening up an eBay account, illegally gaming the system to show positive feedback, and scamming another man out of $750 for a picture of a video game console wasn’t enough. No. They had to give him this low-ink 1998 HP bubble jet purple catastrophe. Couldn’t even send a decent color picture of the Xbox. The sucker just gave you $750 for a piece of paper. The least you can do is go to Kinkos and print the shit on something glossy.
