The Eagles have zero Super Bowls, but let’s all freak out about Kelly Green jerseys

randall-cunningham-eagles

Randall Cunningham is rolling over in his grave with all this nonsense about the Eagles jerseys.

No city in America is more obsessed with a uniform color scheme than the mouth-breathing Eagles fans who are preoccupied beyond measure for their beloved Kelly Green. Only this city could be head over heels for a fictional boxer and a color that hasn’t been used for decades.

This is where you should certainly draw a line in the sand, Jeffrey Lurie, the stupid color for the jerseys. Fight to bring them back as alternate uniforms, that’s ideally what you and the organization should be focusing on. The Eagles are .500 since the 2010 and haven’t won a playoff game since 2008…..BUT THEY’RE BRINGING BACK THE KELLY GREENS!

Chuck Barris, famed host of The Gong Show and claimed CIA assassin, passed away this morning at the age of 87. Barris, a Philadelphia native and Drexel University alum, was the King of Daytime TV, also creating television mainstays The Dating Game and the Newlywed Game.

Luckily for us, death decided to give Barris a one-day only reprieve to give him a chance to host the Philadelphia Gong Show, the pinnacle of television, before he has to return to the sweet embrace of the crypt.

Taping has already concluded, but we do have a rundown of the judges and the contestants who participated in the series. Who do you think will win? Who will receive the least amount of gongs? Let’s see, shall we…

ST. PATRICK’S DAY REPORT: Joel Embiid has been vomiting corned beef for the last hour

joel-embiid-2016100801

Philadelphia, PA – Injured 76ers center Joel Embiid has reportedly been lying face down in his apartment bathroom for the past hour, intermittently raising his giant frame to expel copious amounts of corned beef into his toilet.

Varying accounts claim that Embiid arose at the break of dawn and started to cook several bricks of the salty, cured meat that has become eponymous to the Irish and the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

Embiid reportedly began to eat the first slab of corned beef, alone at his kitchen table, at 8 a.m. this morning in complete silence. After polishing off the entire brick of fatty, marbled meat, he took a second out of the boiling pot of water and retreated, again in silence, to his table.

After successfully eating more than eight pounds of the Irish delicacy, Embiid excused himself from his kitchen and retired to the bathroom, where he has been retching nonstop for the past hour.

At press time, Embiid was able to calm himself for a brief moment as he rummaged through his bathroom cabinets, procured a “kiss me I’m Irish” hat from underneath his sink, placed it atop his head, and then returned to the task at hand.

Gostibehere’s running afoul of the FBI was reportedly Hakstol’s doing, as the head coach made several calls to the federal agency earlier this week to make them aware of Gostibehere’s involvement running an NCAA March Madness pool for his teammates.

Nick Foles hopes that brick of heroin still where he left it in North Philadelphia

Foles

Trouble is coming back to Philadelphia.

Philadelphia, PA – Shouts of “Foles coming yo!” rang out through a dilapidated, run-down section of North Philadelphia this morning as a familiar face returned to the streets for the first time since 2014.

A sawed off shotgun swinging freely at his side, barely covered by a ratty overcoat, newly re-signed backup Eagles quarterback Nick Foles strode confidently down Kensington Avenue into the Philadelphia Badlands.

Whistling the Eagles fight song to himself as he watched dealers scramble off the streets at his mere presence, Foles entered a ramshackle building and quickly headed to the back of the broken down structure.
