Well done, Stoolies. Well done indeed.

Smitty,

First off, I’d like to thank you, barstool, and all the stoolies for helping us this year. Fucking ridiculous how much money we raised in that 24 hour window.

We were able to make a $10,000 donation to charlotte’s family. My sister delivered the check to them last night. We will also be making a donation to someone I coach with at West Chester East, our D-Line coach’s wife, who has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer. And finally, a 3rd donation will be made to CHOP.

Please feel free to share with all those who donated, or simply keep to yourself….but one things for sure. We all made a difference in Charlotte’s life and when stoolies come together for the common good, shit gets done.

Thanks again bro.

Viva,

Mike

ORIGINAL BLOG WITH VICTORIA AND BABY CHARLOTTE HERE

So there you have it. All in all over $15K was raised in that 24 hours when the original blog was posted. If there’s one thing about Stoolies I pride more than anything else is we look out for and take care of our own. We’re a family here. We can bust each other’s balls to the ends of the Earth but as soon as an outsider takes a shot we’re all ready to fight. And, like #HELMETSTRONG (RIP), I’m happy to say one came through again. The goal was shattered to the point where other families were able to be helped, too. Well done, Stoolies. Well done indeed.

Please continue to keep Victoria and baby Charlotte in your thoughts and prayers. The GoFundMe page is still open, too, so keep on spreading the word for this great cause. No amount donated is too small.

Kevin Kolb’s Concussion Symptoms May Not Be Worth The $47+ Million He Was Essentially Donated Playing Ball

Worth it in my already mushed mind.
kolb

SI – With concussions, sometimes you don’t know what is a symptom and what is not. But some symptoms are impossible to ignore. The ringing is like someone shooting a shotgun right next to my ear, every second of every day. It doesn’t go away. The sensitivity to light also has a profound impact. I’ll be in a business meeting indoors and have to politely ask to put on my sunglasses before the headaches and double vision start. But I can deal with those symptoms. The short-term memory loss is more difficult. Sometimes I don’t know if I’m just busy with a very full schedule and that’s why I can’t remember everything, or if it’s a concussion symptom.

I’m one of those “If you can’t handle the heat, get your ass out the kitchen and ESPECIALLY don’t take the paycheck” kind of guys. Would I take $47 million and risk the possibility of my brain melting every time someone shines a light in my eyes like the Sloth victim from Se7en? Absolutely, but I don’t speak for everyone.

Kolb gets a lot of crap for being an overpriced, overrated bum. If you’re solely looking at the statsheet then he fits the bust description perfectly. Nobody got more money for doing less than Corn On The Concussed Kolb. However, nobody really thinks about the shit he was/is going through because of the game. Could you sit in a cube with a fire alarm going off in your ear and be productive? Shit no. Imagine how Kolb felt while trying to memorize a playbook. And it’s not just him. Jim McMahon is only 55 and he can barely remember his own name let alone what he was doing just 5 minutes ago. May not be worth it to some people to play in the NFL and risk living their life literally in the dark.

Still…$47 million buys a lotta nice sunglasses. Worth it in my already mushed mind.

The White Girl Pumpkin Spice Rap Isn’t As Bad As You Think…It’s Much, Much Worse

What do you get when you combine an annoying craze with a couple of hipster-fat white chicks trying to be funny?

 
What do you get when you combine an annoying craze with a couple of hipster-fat white chicks trying to be funny? This. This is exactly what you get. Watch it a couple of times and people are going to think you have Ebola as the eyes and ears start to bleed. Doesn’t look good when you steal your main chorus from the Pants On The Ground dude, either. That man is untouchable.

Not a lot going right in this video EXCEPT the somewhat cute broad coming straight out of left field with the rap at 1:12:

Haven’t heard a snowflake dominate that much since Greg “G-Reg” Olsen dropped multiple bombs on the 7th Floor Crew (6:10). Will never get tired of this jam:

Mo’ne Davis Got Paid To Do A Chevy Commercial Directed By Spike Lee And It Won’t Affect Her NCAA Status…Wait, What?

So a 13-year-old that can't drive is advertising for a car in a commercial that celebrates Philly but is directed by one of New York's most iconic fans? Makes sense.

Actually a pretty tight 60-second spot featuring an incredible underdog story and the city that rallied behind her and her team…if it weren’t a freaking advertisement. So a 13-year-old that can’t drive is advertising for a car in a commercial that celebrates Philly but is directed by one of New York’s most iconic fans? Makes sense. I was also under the impression that young athletes, no matter the age or sex, were not allowed under NCAA regulations to accept payment for their likeness. Whatever. I love the Mo’ne Davis and Taney Little League story-lines, but that’s not going to change the face she’ll be throwing underhand full-time within 2 years. However, bet the bank on her starting on the UConn women’s basketball team. Geno’s already got her in the bag.

Screw it, I’m getting Lazaro’s for lunch now.

UNRELATED BUT RELATED: For some reason never I saw 25th Hour with Ed Norton, PSH and Barry Pepper until recently. I’m not a big “Spike Lee Joint” guy, but that movie was fucking boss.

Man Films Swerving Driver For Miles Predicting Accident, Is Satisfied When Correct

"I knew it was coming!"

 

“I knew it was coming!” Nothing better than that feeling of being right. Well, maybe having the intuition to call the cops when they first noticed Helen Keller was behind the wheel, but that’s neither here nor there. The dude’s a modern day Nostradamous for predicting the car driving predominantly on the other side of a road would go boom.

Oh, and then there’s the seeing your life flash before your eyes moment. Shit, I would like you to meet pants. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.

Flyers Walk Into Philly West, Beat Penguins And Continue To Make It Impossible For Me To Hate Them

If you want to feel alive, I mean really feel alive, I suggest being a Philadelphia Flyer fan this season.

bellemaregoalcelly2

 

If you want to feel alive, I mean really feel alive, I suggest being a Philadelphia Flyer fan this season. I mean they’ll bring you all the way to the depths of your darkest hour; make you really question the meaning of life itself and get their asses handed to the 4-0 by the Blackhawks. And then the next night they’ll play a great game, beat the Penguins 5-3 and have you start mapping out your day for when they’re having a parade down Broad Street come June. Highs and lows and then probably some more lows again, but definitely some highs sprinkled throughout. Just when you think you hate their guts, the reel you back in. The Flyers are now 10-1-1 in the Consol Engery Center and own the Penguins in Pittsburgh aka West Philly West. Let’s break down the game a bit.

Classy Move by Pittsburgh and Classy Uni’s Too

Nate blogged it last night but it was pretty cool that Pittsburgh made sure they sang Oh, Canada before the game last night between two American teams. It was a senseless thing that happened up north yesterday and as much as I hate Pittsburgh, that was a solid move. Also, the Pens’ new thirds looked slick when they were unveiled and looked even better in action last night. Glad they didn’t break them out with a win though.

Bellemare Nets His First NHL Goal


Bienvenue a l’emission Bellemare. Old Frenchy picked a great game to score his first career NHL goal in. The Bellemare show has officially begun. He’ll be the greatest undrafted Free Agent since Wayne Gretzky, and that’s a fact. Also, I saw the nickname Pebbles floating around the interwebs last night and I loooooove it. So Pebbles it is.

R.J. Umberger With The Gordie Howe Hatty

Welcome back to the Pittsburgh man himself. A big time goal to take the lead in the 3rd period, a secondary assist on the eventual game winner and a pretty decent fight for a guy in the later stages of his career. The goal was nice but obviously the fight was Umberger’s best contribution to the game.

Was the hit pretty much as clean as it could be? Sure. But when you’re playing at full-speed and in real-time you can’t really tell. So it was great to see Umby step in there for Coots and have the kid’s back. Fuck Despres either way. Not necessarily for the hit, but just because he’s a plug.

Speaking of Coots

A great 3 point night capped off with the empty netter at the end to seal the deal. This was a huge game for Sean Couturier on national television. Not only did he have 3 points last night, but he held Sidney Crosby (ever heard of ‘em?) to zero. He also went 5-for-8 against Crosby in the faceoff circles. Also, this happened courtesy of @PeteBlackburn.

The Other Guys

It was a great, physical hockey game all around with a ton of intensity. The Flyers have looked pretty uninspired at times so far early in the season but glad to see they took our their sacks last night. They still look realllll shaky in their own defensive end but they made up for that was some solid sustained pressure on offense. They had 17 shots in the 2nd period, the one period when they didn’t score any goals but whatever I’ll take the shots. And lastly, Ray Emery is now 2-0-1 on the season, Steve Mason is 0-3-1. Gotta imagine they stick with Razor in Detroit and hopefully sitting out 2 games in a row will give Mason time to not be such a dickhead anymore.

Woman Attempts To Put Out Fire So Of Course She Instead Extinguishes Herself In The Face

I was giddy before the video even began.

 

WOMEN! I was giddy before the video even began. You could feel it in the air something great was about to happen and man oh man did she not disappoint. Once, twice, thrice to the face. Most of the time that sort of treatment would be pixilated in Japan. Zero to Bukaki in 10 seconds.
