One of Joe Girardi’s first meals in Philly was gloriously gluttonous

One of Joe Girardi’s first meals in Philly was gloriously gluttonous

Joe Girardi, he’s one of us. Right down to the choice of Philadelphia brunch spots.

After a former manager that was all in on the health craze, from coconut oil to pushups on the field, Phillies fans should find their new manager’s palate and enjoyment of the finer carbs in life quite refreshing.

In an interview with MLB Network on Monday, Joe Girardi admitted that one of the first places he went out to eat in his new city was Green Eggs Café, a Philadelphia staple. The café, if you’re not familiar with it, is the place to find lavish cannoli or cookie dough French toast, red velvet pancakes and things of that sort of gloriously gluttonous nature.  

And behold, it appears that the Phillies’ new skipper agrees and is all in on Philadelphia’s extreme palate. He mentioned he selected the pumpkin bread seasonal French toast, which he claims must have had 10,000 calories in it. (You can hear just how much he enjoyed in the meal in the video above.)

If you’re look for photos for reference, here’s a post you can drool over from their Instagram page to get a general sense of the absurdity of this meal.

 

While this may be up for debate, Green Eggs is a delicious and classic spot that has quite a few locations throughout the city now.

No matter what, Philadelphians can all appreciate their new manager's fondness for the finer things in life, including sugar-laden, syrupy brunches. We’d recommend this list to our new guy, if he's really looking to hit all the spots for his stomach (see story).

Girardi said he also hit up Giuseppe and Sons on the 1500 block of Sansom for dinner, so you know he appreciates some quality pasta and bread.

You’ll fit in just fine, Joe.

Joe, may we interest you in a soft pretzel or cheesesteak next?

You have to see what Joel Embiid sent Bryce Harper

Philadelphia is truly the city of Brotherly Love, even between the sports teams in this city.

It turns out, even the superstar athletes in this city support one another and, from the looks of it, their kids. Even from many miles away, in Las Vegas.  

According to Bryce Harper’s Instagram story, he was sent some cool Process gear by none other than Joel Embiid.  

It seems like Embiid wants to make sure Harper and his whole family are rocking the right team this season. Harper’s post on social media includes a Sixers jersey, a Process hat and long sleeve, among baby clothes for future prodigy of Philadelphia, Krew.  

Nothing like instilling the Philadelphia fandom from a young age. Here’s what Harper posted below.  

You just love to see it.

Sixers release chilling hype video ahead of season opener vs. Celtics

'Tis the season for hype videos, as all around the NBA, digital teams prepare to unite their team’s fans with epic storylines that look toward the season ahead.

The Sixers' hype video, released on social media this afternoon, is no different. The team used Brett Brown’s unique voice to narrate the painful, rewarding and exciting journey this team has gone through in the past five-plus years. 

Brown's voice is filled with emotion, as someone who has lived through all the ups and downs as head coach. From the players of the process, to on-court battles  with the Celtics, to re-living the painful end to the 2018-2019 season at the hands of Kawhi Leonard, the video has it all. 

Don’t believe us, just watch it for yourself.
