Charles Barkley is beloved in this city unlike many others, so when Chuck talks about how he experienced the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory, we are most certainly here for it.
Sir Charles visited Jimmy Kimmel Live and spoke about winning money on the Eagles Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
Jimmy asked Chuck just how much money he won betting on the Birds.
“In Alabama, it’d buy a big condo,” Barkley said with a smile. “In L.A., a small guest house.”
That's more than I won.
Charles told a story about how he was in Philly for the NFC Championship Game and stayed downtown, warning Minnesota Vikings fans about our crazy fans.
“It’s a Philadelphia Eagles town by far.”
He also told a story about playing drunk once in a game for the Sixers.
“I have no idea what happened that game,” he said. “I was blasted, not going to lie.”
Thankfully he said that was the only time he played while intoxicated. I'm going to guess he had a few cold ones after the Eagles won the Super Bowl too. Love you, Chuck.
You can see more from the interview below. Chuck says he hasn't played ball since he retired.
We've seen Carson Wentz orchestrate a victory celebration before. But he's never had a dance partner quite like his new wife Maddie Oberg.
As we wrote Monday, the pair got married over the weekend up in Bucks County in what looked like a beautiful affair. Wentz shared some photos from the lovely day.
And now some of the fun has started to pop up on the internet. Like their introduction for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Wentz.
The intro has a bit of Pam and Jim from "The Office" wedding vibe before a "Dirty Dancing" fake out leads them into the "Thriller" dance that includes much of their wedding party.
Looks like a good time to me.
Wentz also shared a teaser video of their day on his Instagram:
Villanova head basketball coach Jay Wright shared some images of his players receiving their championship rings today.
The Wildcats received the rings for their impressive run in the 2018 NCAA Tournament that was capped by a dominant performance over Michigan in the title game.
Guard Phil Booth shared a video showing off his new bling, complete with his name engraved on the side.
It's quite the piece of hardware for an organization that doesn't pay its athletes. Gotta win a championship to earn the bling.
