The Eagles are having fun again. So much fun, they decided to change sports. Kinda.
After Torrey Smith's 59-yard catch-and-run touchdown gave the Birds a 21-0 lead over the visiting Cardinals early in the second quarter, six Eagles got together in the end zone and celebrated by pretending to hit a home run into the stands.
And it was glorious.
Nelson Agholor pretended to pitch a baseball to Smith, while Smith used the football as a bat to hit a home run. Alshon Jeffery was the catcher in the reenactment, while Carson Wentz played the umpire. LeGarrette Blount and Zach Ertz were involved as well.
Dan Levy tweeted a gif of the celebration.
You see that, Mike Trout?
That's what we call subliminal Phillies recruiting!
Joel Embiid wasn't the only one throwing shade at the Phoenix Suns on Thursday evening.
The Philadelphia 76ers' official Twitter account got in on the action after the Suns tossed some shade in their direction.
It all started with a tweet while Mikal Bridges was still a member of the 76ers' squad. @Sixers posted some highlights of Bridges from his Villanova days. Harmless enough.
Then Bridges got traded to the Suns for Zhaire Smith and an unprotected first round pick in 2021. It appears as if the original highlights tweet was deleted but the @Suns had receipts.
That's when the @Suns tossed a jab.
The Sixers didn't take it lying down.
Who you got in the battle of the hoops nerds behind the team Twitter accounts?
Just remember: don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.
This got really awkward, really fast (see video of Mikal Bridges talking about playing for the Sixers even after he was traded away).
After the city of Philadelphia, the campus of Villanova and generally everyone on the internet was celebrating the local product Bridges being drafted by the Sixers, the team dished him to Phoenix (see story).
The news especially hit home for the Bridges family, as his mom, Tyneeha Rivers, works for the organization as the vice president of human resources at Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which includes the Sixers.
This tweet just about sums it up.
Upon being drafted, there was tremendous joy for a hometown kid playing for his hometown team.
Josh Hart, Bridges' former Villanova teammate, had the tweet of the night, too.
Then everything changed after about 46 minutes.
The reactions started pouring in.
All of them, Arch, all of them. At least he found the silver lining for his former teammate.
