A chat with the bride from the Sixers' Draft Lottery Party wedding

A chat with the bride from the Sixers' Draft Lottery Party wedding

Some relationships last for 10 days, some are for a couple of years if you have a good agent and then some relationships — like Philly sports fandom — are for life.

Hopefully, the relationship that was sealed last night at the Sixers' Draft Lottery Party with a couple of "I Do's" is the latter.

Yes, a couple got married at the NBA Draft Lottery Party put on by the Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast at Xfinity Live! Tuesday night and was officiated by ESPN's Pablo Torre.

Our very own Marc Farzetta caught up with the bride and the father of the bride prior to the nuptials and she seemed about as cool as Ben Simmons before a game.

Is this how she always saw her big day going down?

"Since I was a little girl, I've always dreamed of having Robert Covington at my wedding," the bride said.

And he was. RoCo was a special guest on the evening and received a lovely ovation from the crowd despite having a rough playoff stretch to finish the season.

The Sixers didn't win the draft lottery, instead, coming home with the No. 10 overall pick thanks to the Lakers, but it's safe to say this couple went home winners last night.

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.
