The Flyers first teased the upcoming changes to their iconic orange and black jerseys earlier in the week and they just sent out a second teaser offering another look at what's to be officially unveiled next week.
As we wrote on Monday:
Since the 2007-08 season, Reebok, a subsidiary of Adidas, has been the exclusive manufacturer of jerseys for the NHL, and even if the Flyers won't be one of the teams changing their look completely, there will be some changes on the way.
According to SB Nation, at least for one season, the NHL will do away with third jerseys to make the initial jersey implementation easier. The Flyers wore special gold-trimmed 50th-anniversary jerseys last season for 12 home games. The new Adidas jerseys are also said to feature new lightweight material to keep the players cooler and improve flexibility.
Here's the tease that the Flyers shared today:
We'll all have to wait until next week to see just how different, aside from the logo, the jerseys will look.
Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.
He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.
So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.
"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."
"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"
"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.
Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.
The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.
We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.
Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.
"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."
But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.
"They deserve love," Cowherd said.
Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
