Alexa changes tune, takes jab at Patriots

Alexa changes tune, takes jab at Patriots

Don't worry, Eagles fans.

Amazon's Alexa isn't changing her Super Bowl LII prediction.

She's just adding some juice.

Remember when Alexa said she was taking the Eagles because of their "relentless defense" and "underdog status?"

Well, that's still the case.

But Alexa decided to tweak things by throwing a little shade at the Patriots.

Now when you ask, here's Alexa's response, which you can watch in the video above.

The team favored to win is the … *cough* … is the … *cough* … excuse me, is the Patriots. That was tough to get out. But I'm flying with the Eagles on this one because of their relentless defense and the momentum they've been riding off their underdog status. E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!

If the Eagles take down the Patriots on Sunday night, expect to see Alexa partying down Broad Street.

The Dodgers are now calling Chase Utley 'dad'

The Dodgers are now calling Chase Utley 'dad'

Dodgers shortstop Kike Hernandez hit a two-run homer off Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning on Sunday to help spark his team’s 7-2 win over the Nationals on Sunday. 

Then he thanked his dad. 

Not his real one. 

In his postgame interview with SportsNet LA, the 26-year-old thanked his 39-year-old teammate Chase Utley, who is apparently a father figure. 

"After my first at-bat my dad Chase told me to use his bat, and I did, and first pitch I hit a homer,” Hernandez said. “It’s dad’s bat.”

So the Dodgers are now calling Utley dad. Fantastic. 

We've found the 1 thing that scares Joel Embiid

We've found the 1 thing that scares Joel Embiid

We've found the one thing Joel Embiid is afraid of.

It's not an opposing big man. 

It's water.

We all know Embiid would have no qualms about sliding into Rihanna's DMs, but prior to those pictures, it was difficult for his mates to get him down a slide in the Bahamas. As evidenced by this hilarious video from Sixers minority owner Michael Rubin.

@joelembiid is not a fan of water slides 😂 (@michaelgrubin)

Hey, as long as he doesn't have to face-up Hassan Whiteside in a pool, the Sixers should be OK.

In all seriousness though, Sixers fans would probably prefer that Embiid stays as far as possible from any type of contraption that could potentially lead to a freak injury.
