Ellen is looking for Phillies fans who deserve financial help, a new car or more

It looks like Ellen Degeneres wants to do a little giving in the Philadelphia area. Her website, ellentube.com, shared a link on social media recruiting Phillies fans specifically to share their stories.

Her team will, apparently, be at the ballpark on Wednesday to meet and talk with fans who submit their stories. It seems like she will then pick a winner whose story shows they deserve financial help.

Here's what the ad looked like.

Raptors fan Drake found a way to use his own curse on the Sixers

Raptors fan Drake found a way to use his own curse on the Sixers

Oh, he really did it, didn’t he?

If you’re looking for a scapegoat for the Sixers' Game 7 loss to the Raptors Sunday night (see observations) beyond the normal Twitter arguments, look no further. 

It appears that Drake invoked his alleged “curse” on Philadelphia by rocking an old pair of Sixers shorts to watch the game. He posted it on his Instagram story seconds after Kawhi Leonard sealed the game with a shot so insane, it’ll probably appear in the lyrics of the rapper’s next album.

Check out the screenshot from his Instagram story for yourself.


This is bold. And it also explains a lot about why he wasn’t sitting in his regular spot in the arena, as I’m sure he didn’t want Raptors fans thinking he cared about supporting Philadelphia. 

The Drake curse has widely been a phenomenon since he was spotted wearing a Maple Leafs jersey to Game 4 of the NHL playoffs. He has also been connected with Alabama' football's loss in the 2019 national championship game, an AS Roma loss, a Connor McGregor loss at UFC 236 and a 2015 Serena Williams loss in the U.S Open, among others.

It appears the curse is alive and well, with his latest victim being the Sixers.

Raptors troll the Sixers on social media after crazy Game 7 finish

Raptors troll the Sixers on social media after crazy Game 7 finish

Ouch, this one hurts. 

A lot.

The Raptors managed to eliminate the Sixers in one of the most heartbreaking ways, Kawhi Leonard's buzzer-beater fell in to give the Raptors a 92-90 win in Game 7 (see observations).

The Raptors' social media team was also prepared with a post to hit us right where it hurt. It posted a video poking fun at Philly’s traditional pregame bell ceremony.

We guess it’s a good way to troll, even if we think the video is a little awkward. We’re already devastated by this loss and now you poke fun at one of the team's major traditions?

Way to hit a fan base when it's down. See ya next year, Raptors.
