Lane Johnson secures free Bud Light for all if Eagles win Super Bowl

Lane Johnson secures free Bud Light for all if Eagles win Super Bowl

Bud Light will treat fans to free beer if the Eagles manage to win Super Bowl LII, and it’s all thanks to right tackle Lane Johnson.

As if you needed any more motivation to cheer the Eagles on this season, Johnson promised he’s “giving out beer to everybody” should the club win the big game. That caught the attention of the national media, and before too long, Anheuser-Busch property Bud Light, which responded with quite the generous offer.

There are some not-entirely-insignificant dilemmas here, mainly being that the free liquid is Bud Light. I’m more of a Yuengling man, so this news actually comes as a massive disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll probably choke a few down, but I don’t have to be happy about it.

Also, does Johnson technically still owe Eagles fans beer if AB throws a party in his name? Technically, he’s not giving anybody a thing!

You hear that, Lane? Bud Light party or not, I’m still going to be hitting you up for beer after the Eagles win the Super Bowl. And maybe spring for the craft stuff, too.

Sixers players react to Gordon Hayward's horrific leg injury

You absolutely hate to see it.

That's how the sports world felt Tuesday night when Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury during the NBA opener against the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The injury, which is graphic, can be seen here. Hayward has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle.

Instantly, an outpouring of support spread across the NBA.

Here is some reaction from Sixers players:

Eagles rookie Sidney Jones knows about tough injuries. He's recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.

And the terrible injury produced some powerful scenes and images.

Nolan Patrick shows his wizardry with through-the-legs pass for goal

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.
