What's an Eagles game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football without a little trash talk? Or, in this case, a lot of trash talk.
Yes, we hate the Cowboys, but which ones do we really despise? The rivalry doesn't have quite the same number of villains as it did during, say, the 90s, when Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and their band of criminals were racking up Super Bowl wins. Even in recent years, the venom has dipped with the departures of more recent stars such as Tony Romo.
This is a team that's been to the NFL playoffs in two of the last three years, yet seems almost unrecognizable as far as hatable names and faces. Fortunately, NBC Sports' Andrew Kulp has you covered.
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.
