Bryce Harper wears Phanatic-inspired green cleats in Phillies debut

Bryce Harper wears Phanatic-inspired green cleats in Phillies debut

Bryce Harper really knows how to play to his new Philly audience.

Before he ever took the field for the first time in a Phillies uniform, he pandered the Philly faithful by shouting out past legends like Bobby Clarke, Nick “BD” Foles and Chase Utley in an Instagram post. He then rocked a totally badass T-shirt featuring the Phillie Phanatic and Gritty ala Pulp Fiction while reporting for his first day of work at Citizens Bank Park this morning.

Harper then came out to the field prior to opening day player introductions wearing a pair of green cleats made in the image of the Phillie Phanatic.

They are a custom pair of Under Armour cleats with his own "BH" logo on them as well. The Phanatic's unmistakable eyes are clearly visible. We're told they are UA Harper 3's.

Bryce wore them out to right field when he jogged out for the first inning and we assume he'll rock them the entire game, which just got underway at 3:08 p.m.

The Phillies play host to the Atlanta Braves today in the first game of the season. Click here for details on how to stream online or on the MyTeams app on your phone.

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.
