Sixers, Phillies respond after TV station throws shade following Markelle Fultz's first pitch

Sixers, Phillies respond after TV station throws shade following Markelle Fultz's first pitch

Whoa, that's a low blow.

FOX Sports South & FOX Sports Southeast took a shot at the Sixers on Monday after Markelle Fultz threw out the first pitch ahead of the Phillies-Braves game at Citizens Bank Park.

The station felt the need to throw some shade at the Sixers by cracking a joke about the injury history of the team's recent draft picks. Here's what they tweeted.

Not cool, man.

The Phillies and Sixers didn't go quietly, quickly putting this to bed.

The Braves were swept by the Phillies in four games, as they limp home to Atlanta.

Eagles fan performs most beautiful version of 'Hallelujah' in tribute to Wentz

There have been some tremendous covers of Leonard Cohen's masterpiece, "Hallelujah," over the years.

Jeff Buckley's immediately comes to mind. The kids these days are into Pentatonix. Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton to cold open SNL was a work of art.

But one Philadelphia Eagles fan may have recorded the most beautiful, heart-wrenching version yet. It's a tribute to recently fallen hero of Philadelphia, Carson Wentz.

You may be suspect before you click and watch, but wait 'til you hear the lyrics. This refrain will absolutely sell you:

He goes through his reads, the 4th, the 5th

Does a spin, makes the lineman miss

He throws to Ertz, a touchdown - hallelujah!

Brings a tear to the eye. Miss you, Carson.

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts this week.

Nick Foles also happens to make his season debut as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback this week.

Large quantities of people love Stars Wars. Probably slightly less people love the Eagles. So, naturally, there should be some sort of mashup.

The Internet delivered today with a Star Wars: the Last QB hype video featuring none other than Nicky Foles as the Last Hope. Basically, it's a Nick Foles hype video set to some Star Wars clips and soundbites. Why not? Maybe come February they can edit it again to include Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as the Dark Side when the Eagles are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
