Eagles-hater Pete Morelli allowed to referee future Birds' games

If you like penalties and hate the Eagles, you clicked on the right story.

Alleged Eagles hater Pete Morelli will be allowed to referee future Birds' games after the league found no signs of bias towards the Eagles. 

How's this for bias? In a Week 6 win over the Panthers, the Eagles were flagged 10 times for 126 yards. Compare that to the Panthers' one penalty for one yard and you see the problem.

But it wasn't the first time Morelli got flag-happy against the Eagles. In Morelli's last 4 Eagles' games — all away from the Linc — his crew has thrown 40 penalties for 396 yards to opponents' eight penalties for 74 yards. I'm not a numbers guy, but something seems off here.

In true Philly sports fashion, the Eagles will now reach the Super Bowl where Morelli and Co. will be waiting to rain yellow on the field, leading to an Andy Reid-led Chiefs' victory where Reid orchestrates an efficient two-minute game-winning drive, perfectly utilizing all three timeouts.

Embiid receives prestigious — and hilarious — award

Joel Embiid has garnered plenty of accolades during his young NBA career. However, the Sixers’ center earned perhaps his biggest honor yet on Wednesday.

Embiid was given the Shaqtin' A Fool Midseason Award for Worst Moment of the Season.

Yes, that’s a thing.

As you likely know, former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal has a segment during TNT’s “Inside the NBA” that highlights blunders made by current players.

Embiid found himself in the crosshairs thanks to three spectacularly blown dunks during the first half of the season.

“I want to thank Shaq for acknowledging me for missing three dunks in a game as a 6-11 guy,” Embiid said in a video. “But I just didn’t have my legs that day. Next time.”

We're not sure which is funnier: Embiid's missed dunks or him trying to pass for 6-foot-11.

Nerlens Noel and Kevin Hart take a bath, make fun of Joel Embiid

Sixers fan Kevin Hart has a new-ish YouTube show he's calling "Cold As Balls." The premise is pretty simple: he and a guest take an ice bath and chill.

Previous guests have included Draymond Green, Blake Griffin, LaVar Ball, and Candace Parker

Hart just so happens to have former Sixer and current Dallas Maverick Nerlens Noel on as his guest this week.

Aside from making fun of the locker room in Philly, Hart also takes a jab at Joel Embiid. Hart does a decent-enough Embiid impression with a "Trust the Process" but he also mocks the way Embiid speaks. Not cool.

Look for that around the six-minute mark.

Noel also says Dirk Nowitzki is just as funny as Hart. I'd believe it.
