Jeremy Roenick tells funny story about hugging Ed Snider

The tributes and the remembrances continue to roll in as the Flyers community mourns the passing of Ed Snider.

If you were watching Comcast SportsNet's coverage this morning, you likely caught the funny moment when former Flyer Jeremy Roenick called in and talked about the time he hugged Mr. Sinder at his introductory press conference.

Longtime Flyers beat writer Tim Pannacio set up the story by pointing out that nobody hugged Mr. Snider. Nobody.

"Get the beep button ready because I didn't give a $h!t," Roenick said.

"When you get paid a lot of money from somebody, from a team that puts a lot of emphasis and trust in you, you have to be gracious and be loyal," Roenick said. "And Ed Snider was that for me. As a human being, I don't know how you can't reach out and grab somebody and give them a hug for instilling that kind of trust in you. Mr. Snider did that for me. I don't care if he doesn't like to be touched or if he doesn't liked to be hugged or anything like that."

"I wish I'd given him more hugs," Roenick said.

Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers

Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.

The newest member of the Eagles linebacking crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.

If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:

When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.

It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.

His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]

Carson Wentz bouncing around on road to recovery


Carson Wentz bouncing around on road to recovery

Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl last month, but their fans were also treated to an encouraging site on Monday morning: Carson Wentz throwing a football.

Wentz shared some video to his Instagram story in which you can see him throwing a football from multiple angles while wearing a brace on his knee.

Back in January before the Super Bowl, the Eagles quarterback revealed that the knee injury he suffered in December was worse than originally thought. He tore his left LCL in addition to his ACL but he said then that he hoped to be back for Week 1.

"My goal is to be ready for Week 1," Wentz said. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. And I'm very confident in that."

"I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury — I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, with no looking back." 

No reason to believe any of that has changed over the last month and a half and it sure looks like he's progressing.
