You spoke, Turkey Hill listened?
Ten days ago we posted a story that Turkey Hill had discontinued their Graham Slam flavor of ice cream, which has been promoted for years during Phillies games, after seeing this tweet.
The reaction surrounding the news, however, may have changed their minds. Wednesday night, CSN's John Clark tweeted out a photo of perhaps his final cup of the dairy delight on his account.
Fans, including baseball writer Jayson Stark, chimed in with disappointment that the ice cream was going away.
… but wait, Clark posted this update today, which put a smile on the face of anyone who thought they'd never have another scoop of Graham Slam ice cream.
While you may not be able to grab a pint at your local grocery store anymore, you can still find Graham Slam at ice cream shops and at Phillies games.
It could make for a sweet moment during what has been a woeful baseball season.
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.
