Chris Long didn't visit the White House with the New England Patriots after their Super Bowl victory in 2017 and he plans to stay home once again in 2018 if the Eagles win this weekend in Minnesota.
Long was a guest on Pardon My Take and was asked if he'd visit the White House this time around should the Eagles visit Pennsylvania Avenue as Super Bowl champs.
"No, I'm not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?" Long said.
Here's what Long said about his absence at the White House last time: "(When) my son grows up — and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is — I don’t want him to say, 'Hey Dad, why’d you go when you knew the right thing was to not go?'"
For those just tuning in to the Eagles' season, Long has donated his entire salary to charity and has been praised by Barack Obama for his actions.
Long also spoke on the podcast about the electric crowd at the NFC Championship Game.
"In all seriousness, it was the loudest stadium I had heard before," Long said. "It was just wild. Philly fans were going nuts. We had people after the game riding up the Rocky steps in ATVs and stuff."
We've found the one thing Joel Embiid is afraid of.
It's not an opposing big man.
We all know Embiid would have no qualms about sliding into Rihanna's DMs, but prior to those pictures, it was difficult for his mates to get him down a slide in the Bahamas. As evidenced by this hilarious video from Sixers minority owner Michael Rubin.
Hey, as long as he doesn't have to face-up Hassan Whiteside in a pool, the Sixers should be OK.
In all seriousness though, Sixers fans would probably prefer that Embiid stays as far as possible from any type of contraption that could potentially lead to a freak injury.
On the last season of The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin, aka Becca K., won the show by ending up with former racecar driver Arie Luyendyk, aka Arie, only to have him call off the engagement and wedding on national TV and propose to the show’s runner-up, Lauren Burnham, aka Lauren B.
Let’s hope these former athletes treat her a little better.
Today on their Facebook page, The Bachelor revealed the men that would be vying for the heart of the once-scorn show contestant and two of them stood out, former Eagles TEs Clay Harbor and Colton Underwood.
Harbor probably doesn’t require as much googling as Underwood because he was drafted by the Eagles in 2010 in the fourth round and pulled in 114 catches and nearly 1,200 yards with eight scores in his career for four teams. He won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.
Underwood was literally on the Eagles’ practice squad for six days in 2014 and was on the practice squad for two other teams without appearing in an NFL game.
If you already watch the show, a few former NFL players could be an interesting wrinkle to the house dynamic, but if you’re not a fan, I’m not sure these names, even as Eagles fans, will pull you in.
The show kicks off on May 28 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
