87ers going with squarest uniform in history?

Who plays in the G-League under the sea?

The Delaware 87ers, that’s who.

Wednesday is Nickelodeon Night at the 87ers’ game against the Erie BayHawks and the home squad is going with outstanding SpongeBob SquarePants uniforms.

Outrageous uniforms are commonplace in minor-league baseball, but it’s great to see the G-League embracing an outside-of-the-box look for a good cause. 

The 87ers are raising money from ticket sales and a jersey auction to benefit CHILD, Inc., which provides programs for children and families that have been impacted by domestic violence.

Tipoff for Nickelodeon Night is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Bob Carpenter Center at University of Delaware.

The 87ers entered Tuesday night’s game against Santa Cruz at 6-14 on the season, but maybe this is what they need to get them out of the Bikini Bottom of the standings.

Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

Fan injured by Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon during game

This is taking food delivery a bit too far.

A woman suffered facial injuries when the Phillie Phanatic fired a hot dog into the crowd with his cannon during Monday night’s game at Citizens Bank Park.

“And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew,” Kathy McVay, a Plymouth Meeting resident, originally told 6 ABC’s Sarah Bloomquist about the incident.

McVay said she went to a hospital and underwent a CAT scan to make sure that she didn't suffer a concussion.

“I have a small hematoma in my eye,” McVay said. “And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better. It's going to go down the side of my face.”

Per the report, the Phillies did reach out to McVay to apologize and “the Phanatic feels terrible about what happened” (although we’re not exactly sure how he explained that sentiment).

To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride.

"When I tell my brothers, they started laughing," she said to NBC10. "It's funny, it's a story I can tell people. My only thing is just to warn people just to be careful. Because you would think you'd get hit by a baseball instead of a flying hot dog."

Now that people know she’s OK, McVay can bank on people getting a decent laugh out of this one.

Rocky and Adonis return to Philadelphia in new Creed II trailer

The latest chapter in the Rocky Balboa saga is coming to theatres this Thanksgiving and the trailer for it dropped this morning.

Creed II picks up with Michael B. Jordan reprising his role as Apollo Creed's son, Adonis, coming to grips with fighting someone with the last name Drago — clearly a flashback to his father getting killed in the ring at the hands of Russian Ivan Drago.

Sly Stallone returns as the old and wise Rocky Balboa, dropping knowledge bombs instead of left hooks.

At least part of the movie takes place in Philadelphia, with a skyline shot showing up in the trailer. The first Creed movie had plenty of Philly flavor, so we're hoping we'll get a bit more in the sequel.
