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.
Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.
After the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"
Irving's response ... NSFW ...
WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.
Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.
So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."
With the video circulating on social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.
One of the things that I love about Joel Embiid is the fact that it seems like every day we find another reason to love him even more.
Today's entry comes from a profile in GQ magazine in which he talks about plenty of things. But it was one of the first things he was asked about his Twitter account that had me rolling once again.
How do you find out if one of [your tweet] has gone viral, then?
Joel: I think 90 percent of them [will be viral]. That’s the expectation.
Amazing. The thing is, I don't know if he's giving himself enough credit. ONLY 90%????
Oh, and he subscribes to the Jah Rule school of thought: WHO CARES?
"Then I had so much time, too, because I missed that whole year and the second year after, so I didn’t have anything to do," Embiid said. "[I’d] just go on social media and converse with fans, make crazy jokes, and tweet crazy stuff because I don’t care. I say whatever I want to."
His critique of other players' boring Twitter accounts is also incredibly on point:
What do you mean some guys are always tweeting the same thing?
Joel: Bullshit like, “Game Day!” “It’s a great game.” I don’t know. They’re all the same. It’s boring.
The whole Q&A is worth any Sixers fan's time just to get to know a little more about Jojo. Be happy he's ours. And pray he stays healthy so he can take his game on the court to the same level as his game off of it.
