Meek Mill

Did the Patriots troll Eagles fans with their Super Bowl hype video?

Did the Patriots troll Eagles fans with their Super Bowl hype video?

We’d like to report a violation.

On the final weekday before the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots posted a hype video. That would not be news. However, they used Meek Mill for the music of their hype video.

Does anyone see anything weird about that? I do.

Throughout the Eagles’ run last season, Meek’s Dreams and Nightmares was their rallying cry. The team even came out to the song at the Super Bowl last season ... you know, the game where Nick Foles caught a touchdown, Tom Brady dropped a pass and the Eagles won, 41-33.

As you might expect, Eagles fans are not happy about this. Here’s a few of the replies to the Patriots’ post.

If this is a known troll from the Patriots, then it’s kinda brilliant, but it seems pretty odd to use Meek Mill in your hype video after he was so much a part of the Eagles' victory last year.

If you needed one more reason to cheer for the Rams on Sunday, this is it.

New Eagles hype video features Meek Mill in B-Dawk jersey

The Philadelphia sports teams love them some Meek Mill.

Once the Eagles won Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots and were introduced to Meek's "Dreams and Nightmares," the great Andrew Unterberger crowned the song "officially the greatest Philly sports anthem ever."

So it's no surprise the Birds went back to the well in 2018.

You may recall the hype video to kick off the 2018 season featured some familiar Meek refrains voiced by Black Thought of the Roots.

Now, the Eagles hype team has brought Meek himself in to pump the Philly faithful up just a few weeks into the season. I'd say it worked.

And if there's anything that gets Philly fans amped up more than Meek's song, it's Brian Dawkins. So you can guess whose jersey Meek is wearing in the video.

Philly, stand up.

Meek Mill to attend Sixers-Celtics Game 2 in Boston

Good news for people who like small-sample-size made-up stats because the Sixers are undefeated in 2018 when Meek Mill attends their game.

Meek Mill will be in Boston this evening when the Sixers look to even the series at one game apiece, according to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

Mill will be a guest of Sixers' co-owner Michael Rubin who has been a pivotal voice in helping get Meek out of prison. 

Sports Illustrated wrote a very in-depth story on Rubin's involvement and the wild day last week when Meek was released from prison, hopped on a helicopter, and wound up at Game 5 of the Sixers series against the Miami Heat. Mill rang the ceremonial bell prior to tip off.

There was also news today that Amazon is ordering a documentary series on the Meek saga with Jay Z's involvement.

Hopefully there will be multiple episodes in it featuring Sixers' wins.

UPDATE: Yep. Traveling in style.
