Bryce Harper spends 30 minutes before games doing his hair

It's the All-Star Break. The Phillies are historically awful. Jonathan Papelbon is making poop jokes. So what is a Philadelphia fan to do other than to point at the really, really good baseball players on teams that are not our own and find things to make fun of them for.

Thankfully, Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper makes that pretty easy (when he's not being really, really good at baseball).

The Washington Post has a piece today on Harper embracing the superstar spotlight. He loves it. Yes, he's a bit of a narcissist -- which, fine, most athletes are today -- but he also is putting in all the work you want from your best player.

Still, what else do we have to talk about? Let's mock.

This is how Bryce Harper stands out on his own, and how he wants to help baseball stand out as a pursuit. He has said he takes 30 minutes on his pregame hair. He has Instagrammed his tailored suits. He has used a custom-painted bat in a game. And he has undergone an off-beat regimen – and by off-beat, we mean insane – to completely overhaul his physique so that he stood out, he popped, in ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue.

Emphasis mine.

Maybe Chase should spend a little more time on how he coiffes his hairdo instead of watching all that film?

How he prepared for the ESPN the Mag Body Issue is what caught our attention in the first place:

He did it all, you know, for baseball.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
