I hate the 76ers trade for the #1 pick

Like Robert Johnson at the crossroads, this blog has a life changing decision to make. Which direction does our blog take? Do we take the deal with the devil, or do we forge another path?

This brings us to the reported trade 76ers GM Bryan Colangelo pulled off over the weekend. Giving the Boston Celtics the #3 pick this year and either the 2018 Lakers 1st round pick or the 2019 Sacramento 1st round pick for the #1 overall pick this year and the rights to draft Markelle Fultz?

I hate this trade. Absolutely despise it.

060512-Angelo-Cataldi-400Angelo Cataldi surprised co-workers Monday morning when the host of the 94 WIP Morning Show came into work sporting a black t-shirt adorned with Sam Hinkie’s face and the slogan “Trust the Process” printed across its backside.

Cataldi, who once wrote in a column, “Above all, Hinkie was a loser,” feigned surprised when co-workers questioned his choice of apparel.

Rob Ellis and Mike Missanelli blaming millennials for the decline of Philadelphia sports is hell on earth

maxresdefault

The beast of hell walks among us in the clothes of a common man. If the demon should reveal its true face to you at a time when you have turned away from Christ, then you will be without protection, & it will gleefully devour your heart & rend you limb from limb & carry your immortal soul into the yawning pit.

I have foreseen how I will die. I have had a vision of my undoing. An overweight, out of touch jowly man and his sniveling, bland, milquetoast toadie disembowel me while opining about the shortcomings of the millennial generation.

So it shall be, so it shall pass.

Ruben Amaro Jr. walks into Phillies clubhouse out of habit, trades Mickey Moniak

Ruben Amaro JrOld habits die hard, just ask former Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr.

Visiting Citizens Bank Park for the first time since being fired as the organization’s general manager, the two sides got a good chuckle out of Amaro Jr. accidentally walking into the Phillies home clubhouse instead of the visitors clubhouse Wednesday night prior to the Phillies home stint with the Boston Red Sox.

“Oops…I don’t think I’ve even been to the visitors clubhouse, my bad guys,” Amaro Jr. said to the amused group of Phillies who were lounging around prior to the game, speaking with members of the media.

“Oh, and someone tell Mickey Moniak I’ve traded him to the Mets for Curtis Granderson. We need some power at the corners and they needed young talent. Should be a win-win.”

Eagles coaches raving about Marcus Smith’s Uber rating

Eagles position coaches were buzzing Wednesday morning about recently arrived defensive lineman Marcus Smith, parcticularly in regards to the young man’s 5-star Uber driver rating, claiming he had shown vast improvement already over last year.

When asked to give an assessment of Smith so far, Chris Wilson, the defensive line coach of the Eagles, said Smith’s 1992 Toyota Tercel was “practically spotless” and he “always asks you if there’s a specific route you want him to go, or if he should just use Waze.”

SCANDAL: Shorr-Parks admits to never attending an Eagles OTA, no journalist has

F-LG0XIp

Eliot Shorr-Parks is blowing the lid off of a massive Philadelphia sports media scandal.

In a stunning admission this morning on NJ.com, Eagles beat writer Eliot Shorr-Parks published a column apologizing to his readers after he admitted to not attending a single Eagles OTA this season, nor any over his entire journalistic career.

In fact, no sports journalist has ever attended an OTA in the past decade, he claimed.

The veteran journalist admitted to “just hanging out at a bar” for several hours each day with a number of other journalists from various city publications who were supposed to be covering the informal team workouts leading up to July training camp.

“Everything you read about OTAs in any of the newspapers in this city? All made up. Nobody actually goes to them, who would do that?” he wrote in a column published on NJ.com this morning. “We tried to cover them at first, but they’re so boring. Athletes running around in their shorts, playing catch? You try to crank out 1,000 words a day on that bullshit.”

“Where do they even hold OTAs anyways? Clearwater? No, that’s baseball…umm….Lehigh Valley? That sounds about right.”

Shorr-Parks decided to come clean this year, though, claiming he was feeling guilty about lying to his readers.

However, it’s believed he was forced to admit to his scam after accidentally publishing a screen shot from the NES classic “Tecmo Super Bowl” on his Twitter account over the weekend and trying to pass it off as action from OTAs.

“QB Eagles looks great this year! Really working hard on his touchdown celebrations,” Shorr-Parks wrote under the published photo.

Former PHL 17 reporter Colleen Campbell named official bartender of Coggin Toboggan

When god closes a door, he also opens a window.

Disgraced former PHL 17 reporter Colleen Campbell has landed on her feet after being fired from the local media station yesterday after an expletive laden tirade against a Philadelphia Police Officer outside of Helium Comedy Club made the rounds on social media Tuesday.

Sure she humiliated herself and only invited further embarrassment after issuing a strange non-apology in an interview with Philly Mag, in which she claimed to only have “one drink” during the evening, but changed the amount to “one margarita, two shots, and two drinks at Helium” by the end of the interview.

But you know what, who’s counting?! It’s not a bartender’s job to judge, that’s the Lords.

Colleen will have to lean heavily on her secondary bartending career to make ends meet, so we reached out to the embattled reporter and offered her the position of Official Bartender at the Coggin Toboggan offices.

She’s perfect for the position. Ask her for one drink, she may end up giving you FIVE. What an employee! Plus, she’s hilarious, I can only imagine how she’ll keep the office in stitches with her raunchy one-liners about “those fucks” at the Philadelphia Police Department. I’m laughing just thinking about her shoe-smelling bit…what a card!

She never did get back to us, but we can only assume she was so taken aback by our generous offer that she needed a few days to recover.

Besides, Colleen you don’t want to miss our upcoming company get together, we’re seeing Mitch Fatel perform at Helium Comedy Club on June 22! It should be a great show and I hear they’re offering 50% off on all drinks
