Clay Buchholz's newborn son has refreshing name

This offseason, the Phillies welcomed a new addition to their rotation in Clay Buchholz.

On Tuesday, Buchholz and his wife, Lindsay, welcomed a new addition to their family: Jax Daniel.

A baby boy with a name Phillies fans will like. It's certainly strong and refreshing, which is how Buchholz feels in his new setting after spending parts of 10 seasons with the Red Sox.

Hopefully, Jax Daniel can eventually make his way to Citizens Bank Park to see dad pitch.

Here are pictures of the lovely family, courtesy of Buchholz's wife's Instagram account.

Chris Long, Lane Johnson shame NFL's official shop

Chris Long, Lane Johnson shame NFL's official shop

The Eagles' dog mania has reached the official NFL shop and the league's official shop is putting its proceeds toward a good cause.

With a little nudge from Eagles defensive end Chris Long and right tackle Lane Johnson, the NFL will donate 100 percent of its proceeds from their underdog T-shirts to fund Philadelphia School District, according to CBS3's Joe Holden.

“The bottom line is the NFL Shop will also donate 100 percent of the proceeds from this shirt to fund Philadelphia schools,” the NFL told CBS3.

On Monday, the NFL Shop tagged Long in its tweet announcing a new item — an Eagles underdog T-shirt.

Long then responded with …

Followed by this from Johnson …

Both responded Tuesday evening thanking the NFL for helping Philly schools.

Long has donated his entire $1 million salary this season to charity.

In addition to the NFL donating its proceeds of the underdog shirts to Philly school, Chegg announced its partnering with the Chris Long Foundation's Pledge 10 for Tomorrow.

Yo! Rocky Balboa has a message for Eagles fans


Yo! Rocky Balboa has a message for Eagles fans

If anyone knows about an underdog from Philadelphia finding that storybook ending, it's Sylvester Stallone.

The man who personified the Philly attitude as Rocky Balboa posted a message to Eagles fans on his social media.

Sly is wearing a custom "Stallone" Eagles jersey in the video and tells viewers he's a diehard Birds fan. He shouts out the great Timmy Brown as his favorite player as a kid. 

"I got the ring, I got the jersey, I got the will, I've got the optimism that the Birds are going to fly triumphant over Philly tonight!" Stallone says.

"Keep punching, Philly."

​The original Rock also shared an image of the Rocky Statue near the Art Museum decked out in Eagles gear.

"Now here is a statue that REALLY knows how to dress like a WINNER!!!!! I have tremendous respect for Tom Brady and the Patriots, but “… It’s about how much you can TAKE and keep moving forward! That’s how WINNIN’ is done!!!!” EAGLES BY KNOCKOUT!!!," the caption says.
