Watch: Brent Celek goes undercover as an overbearing Wawa employee

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I imagine if I needed a cup to get my day started, I wouldn't be interested in making small talk with a stranger until after I've had it — even if that stranger was Eagles tight end Brent Celek.

That in my opinion is what makes Celek such a terrible Wawa employee. Sure, he's funny, polite and engaging as an undercover coffee barista, but I was already wide awake and in a pleasant mood when I watched this video. That's never been the case at 6 a.m., when the caffeine would be most welcome.

Come to think of it, I would be a little weirded out if a random convenience store clerk was asking about my weekend plans or inviting me to play in a pick-up football game regardless of the hour. It's exactly the kind of human interaction we're all trying to avoid, which is why we're ordering our Italian Shortis off of touchscreen monitors in the first place.

So while we can all be amused by Celek's antics here, the truth is that's only because it isn't happening to any of us. We can only hope he did get in trouble for eating on the job, and his reign of terror will not be coming to a Wawa near any of us in the future.

Asked about LeBron James during Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

During 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.

Joel Embiid expects 90 percent of his tweets to go viral

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.

Amen.

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.
