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.

Nobody knows where Villanova is located

The year of 2018 is winding down and coming to a close and with it comes the annual year-end lists.

It was a big year for the city of Philadelphia. The Eagles won the Super Bowl. Gritty came into this world like a wrecking ball. GQ named us the city of the year.

Oh, and the Villanova Wildcats won the NCAA national championship.

Where is Villanova anyway? Is it in Philadelphia?

Apparently, a ton of people have no idea.

Google shared its search trends in the United States for 2018 and the No. 1 search for "where is ________?" You guessed it: Villanova University.

There were a couple of other Philly-related searches that came up a lot. Nick Foles was the seventh-most searched for athlete behind Tristan Thompson, Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, Le'Veon Bell, Kawhi Leonard, and Dez Bryant.

In terms of sports team searches, the Eagles were searched for the third most behind the Cavaliers and Red Sox.

Surely, Gritty would have popped up on these lists somewhere, right? We couldn't find him in any of the lists but he did have at least one day of widespread fame back in September:

Sixers to wear a new white 'Earned Edition' jersey on Christmas in Boston

Philadelphia fans won't just be dreaming of a white Christmas this year, they'll get to see white on the court when the Sixers take on the Celtics up in Boston on Dec. 25.

According to Sixers president Chris Heck, he strongly hinted in a tweet that the team will wear a white Earned Edition uniform made by Nike on Christmas Day.

For those unfamiliar with the Earned Edition unis, the NBA is rewarding teams who made the playoffs the previous season with a one-off variation of the City or Statement Edition jerseys as part of the Nike NBA Earned Program.

The white uniforms that Heck showed off Wednesday very much resemble the team's City Edition grey look, which we were big fans of.

The Sixers travel to Boston to play at 5:30 p.m. on Christmas in a rematch of last season's tough playoff matchup. The Sixers, of course, have a new high-powered edition to their lineup in Jimmy Butler, who could help to deliver a win to all of the boys and girls in the Delaware Valley.

Here's a look at the white uniforms as well as some of the other Earned jerseys from around the league.
