Eagles, the clear champion of champions, featured on Jeopardy

Does it ever get old, Eagles fans?

You know, being reminded that your team won the Super Bowl?

It sure doesn't.

For some fans, maybe it's still sinking in — but these daily reminders must feel good.

There were a few more Monday. First, this question popped up on "Jeopardy."

Pretty sure every Eagles fan has the answer for that one. This also comes after the Eagles were featured on "Wheel of Fortune" in March.

And the Birds are obviously on top of the entire sports world, as well.

They were declared victorious — and dominated — in this NBC Sports Northwest poll.

The results were possibly skewed just slightly because of this, but the fans have spoken.

Eagles owner Jeff Lurie said it quite well right here in March:

"The incredible nature of being able to see Eagles fans fulfilling their championship dreams is indescribable. And it wasn’t just the parade, it wasn’t just on the field with the confetti, it’s every day since. And the stories, I can’t tell you how many times people come up to me, wherever it is, there’s always Eagles fans everywhere, and they may just see you and start crying. They may see you and start hyperventilating.

"The stories they have with their mothers, their fathers, who they got to experience it with. I don’t know if you could explain it to fans everywhere in the country, but those of us who know the passion and the love for this football team and how much they’ve wanted the Eagles to win a Super Bowl, it’s like it gets played out every day in a real emotional, real personal way. I always say we’ve got the best sports fans in America, if not the world. But the personal stories are what drives it to be so special."

Brent Celek would rather retire than play for Cowboys

Brent Celek would rather retire than play for Cowboys

Need another reason to love Brent Celek?

Probably not — the standing ovation he got at the Sixers game in March just hours after being cut by the Eagles gives you a sense of the connection he has with Philadelphia fans.

But appearing Friday on 97.5 The Fanatic, Celek did the one thing guaranteed to get you in any Eagles fan's good graces — diss the Cowboys.

"Hell no. Do you think I would play for the Cowboys? Philly is my home," Celek said. "If they offered me 10 million, I still wouldn't go."

While Celek said back in March before being cut that he wasn't planning to retire, it sounds like his mind has shifted. He has a hard time imagining himself playing anywhere besides Philadelphia.

"I think I'm leaning more toward retirement," Celek said. "I've had a few offers, but none of them are worth leaving a city that I have been in for 11 years where I won the Super Bowl in my final year. It wouldn't feel right to put another uniform on."

Like seeing Brian Dawkins in a Broncos uniform, it would be bizarre to watch Celek suit up for another team. 

If he does find a new home, we know it definitely won't be Dallas.

Mets pitcher records 1st MLB hit off Scott Kingery, jokes on social media

Mets pitcher records 1st MLB hit off Scott Kingery, jokes on social media

When someone gets a bloop single or a broken bat hit, they’ll often say “it looks like a line drive in the box score.” Does the same apply when your first major-league hit came off Scott Kingery lobbing pitches over the plate?

Thursday, in the midst of the Mets' 20-run victory, the Phillies used position players to record the final nine outs of the game. Roman Quinn pitched first and regularly registered in the upper 70s with his offerings, but Kingery on the other hand …

In the eighth inning, Mets reliever Jerry Blevins was called on to hit for just the fourth time in his 12-year MLB career and he delivered with an RBI single off the soft-tossing rookie infielder. 

After the game, Blevins took to social media to make a joke about his first hit.

Mets fans had some fun with the moment, too.

While Dodgers fans, just didn’t get it.

The Phillies went on to win the second game of the twin bill, aided by a solo home run from Kingery. The Phils also gained a half-game on the Atlanta Braves in the standings, so we can have a laugh at this one.

Congratulations, Jerry, it’s a line drive off Kershaw in the box score.
