TMZ Sports reports witnesses saw Halladay's plane doing 'bizarre dips'

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of what they say is Roy Halladay's plane doing "bizarre dips and rises" moments before it crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.

The footage was captured by boaters who thought the flying pattern to be shocking and thus felt the need to record it.

Halladay's plane crashed on Tuesday in Florida. The baseball legend did not survive.

Authorities have yet to give any explanation for the cause of the crash but are investigating.

TMZ Sports spoke to multiple witnesses who commented on the flying pattern:

We spoke with other boaters in the area who told a similar story -- "dramatically increasing and decreasing in elevation."  

Another witness says, "He was flying like that all week. Aggressively."

You can view the disturbing video here if you choose. Be warned of its graphic language and nature.

The baseball community continues to mourn the loss and fans in Philadelphia have started a makeshift memorial to Halladay outside of Citizens Bank Park.

Meek Mill getting out of prison ... heading to Sixers game?

Hold up, wait a minute! 

Meek Mill is getting out of prison. And it’s happening just in time for him to get to the Wells Fargo Center before tonight’s Game 5. 

Might he be the bell ringer of choice? If he is, the building is going to go crazy. 

What did Meek Mill do upon getting his freedom back? He posted about the Sixers of course. 

Let’s go @sixers

Mill is officially being released after spending the last several months in prison. In November, he was sentenced for two to four years for violating the terms of his probation. 

Comedian and Philly guy Kevin Hart, along with Sixers minority owner Michael Rubin, confirmed Mill is getting out.

On the way to the sixers game let’s go!!!! #meekfree

During the Eagles’ improbable Super Bowl run, Mill’s song “Dreams and Nightmares” became the unofficial anthem of the team. The Eagles even used it as their entrance music in the postseason and it became a staple of postgame locker room celebrations. 

The Sixers are up in their series against the Heat, 3-1, and can finish the series tonight (8 p.m./NBCSP).

Watch Joel Embiid battle Steve Nash in soccer ping pong for $1,000

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown once famously called a young Joel Embiid's skills comparable to "Shaquille [O'Neal] with soccer feet."

Embiid put those soccer skills on display in a video for Bleacher Report in which he takes on one of the NBA's most famous soccer players, Steve Nash. You can read more about the latter's interest in futbol here.

The pair compete in an interesting game that looks like a riff on ping-pong but with a soccer ball they juggle. The rules seem pretty lax, as Nash asks Joel at one point why he's serving on points the former Sun won.

The highlight is clearly an Embiid header that is basically a spike.

In the end, it looks like Nash got the better of the Sixers' big man. All fun and games and pocket change for these two.
