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.

Nobody knows where Villanova is located

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 their 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

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.
