Stephen Colbert mocks Phillies, introduces Hilly Phanatic

The only surprising thing about Stephen Colbert making fun of the Phillies with the Democratic National Convention in town this week is that it took until Tuesday.

Colbert used our beloved Phillies as the brunt of a joke last night and then invited out the "Hilly Phanatic" instead because the real guy was unvailable.

"Unfortunately the Phillie Phanatic wasn't available for the convention because it belongs to some baseball team and they can't spare him because he's the only entertaining part," Colbert said.

As you can see below, the Hilly Phanatic has the personality of Mike Pence compared to the real Phillie Phanatic. This one looks like the Phillie Phanatic's second cousin from overseas, not from the Galapagos but rather from the land of Smurfs.

Nerlens Noel and Kevin Hart take a bath, make fun of Joel Embiid

Nerlens Noel and Kevin Hart take a bath, make fun of Joel Embiid

Philadelpha 76ers fan Kevin Hart has a new-ish YouTube show he's calling "Called As Balls." The premise is pretty simple: he and a guest take an ice bath and chill.

Previous guests have included Draymond Green, Blake Griffin, LaVar Ball, and Candace Parker

Hart just so happens to have former Sixer and current Dallas Maverick Nerlens Noel on as his guest this week.

Aside from making fun of the locker room in Philly, Hart also takes a jab at Joel Embiid. Hart does a decent-enough Embiid impression with a "Trust the Process" but he also mocks the way Embiid speaks. Not cool.

Look for that around the 6-minute mark.

Nerlens also says Dirk Nowitski is just as funny as Hart. I'd believe it.

Eagles fans donate to Minnesota charity and receive a historic gift

What goes around comes around, at least for some charitable Eagles fans.

Some good karma has found its way to particular Eagles fans, courtesy of the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. Fans who donated to head coach Mike Zimmer’s foundation to apologize for some of Philadelphia’s rowdy behavior before, during and after the NFC Championship Game have received a special memento from U.S. Bank Stadium.

Eagles fans were gifted a jar of the historic confetti that streamed down onto the newly-crowned Super Bowl Champions at the Vikings’ home field on Feb. 4 and a thank you note acknowledging their contribution to the organization.

Check out Reddit user EYEsoar’s photo for proof.

While it may not be enough for fans to perform their own Jalen Mills-style confetti angels, these generous Eagles fans will hold a piece of Philadelphia history.

The donation from Eagles fans now total more than $18,000 as of Jan. 26, according to the ZimFoundation Twitter page and we can only imagine this total will grow.

It pays to be nice.
