Tuesday is a big day for Philadelphia Phillies fans. We'll finally get a glimpse of highly-touted shortstop J.P. Crawford in a Phillies uniform.
It's one of the few moments fans have been looking forward to in an otherwise bleak season.
It's obviously a big day for his friends and family as well.
J.P.'s older sister Eliza posted an emotional message to her Twitter account talking about what it means to her and the family.
Eliza talks about how a 3-year-old J.P. would cry when he couldn't play in her tee-ball games but also how they grew up bonding over playing catch.
"I swear from the time I seen him hit and throw a ball I knew my parents gave birth to a future star and I was going to have a brother with the potential of playin in the MLB," she wrote.
"This guy really worked his butt off to make his dreams become a reality."
J.P. will take the next step in making more dreams become a reality tonight as he suits up for the Phils as they take on the New York Mets. No word just yet on whether he'll get the start.
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.
