Carson Wentz's newest tattoo has special meaning

Football players get tattoos all the time. For Carson Wentz, his newest tattoo has special meaning.

Wentz, who got engaged to Madison Oberg in February, posted photos on Instagram of the matching tattoos he got with his fiancé. The two have "Agape" on their wrists, which Wentz explains in his caption is the Greek word for "the highest form of love." 

Wentz has said he's "very confident" he'll be able to return to the Eagles in Week 1. He'll host a charity softball game for his AO1 Foundation Friday, June 1, at Citizens Bank Park.

Former Eagles WR Jason Avant competes on American Ninja Warrior

On the next episode of American Ninja Warrior, airing June 25 at 9 p.m. on NBC, former longtime Eagle Jason Avant competes with Jalen Mills and Quintin Mikell in attendance to cheer him on.

Avant, 35, appeared in 148 games in the NFL, 116 with the Eagles, before retiring and settling in the area and opening Launch, a trampoline park in Deptford, New Jersey.

He has to make it through the first round … right?

The show’s Facebook page gave this preview of his run through the course.

He seems to have a little trouble on the beginning stages of the course, but, would they really tease Avant’s run only for him to end up losing? My completely uninformed guess is that Avant makes it to the end and smashes the buzzer.

I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see.

Cheesesteaks are great.

People who are new to Philadelphia should eat cheesesteaks. People who are not new to Philadelphia should also eat cheesesteaks.

New 76ers draft pick Zhaire Smith is new to Philadelphia so he went to eat a cheesesteak.

Thankfully, it was a pretty good one at Jim's Steaks on South Street. It appears as if there is no ketchup or other strange substances on his cheesesteak. Hot peppers are not only acceptable but encouraged, in my humble cheesesteak eating opinion.

Congrats, Zhaire for enjoying a cheesesteak successfully without embarrassment.

You can learn much more about Smith and his abilities and fit with the Sixers right here.
