Hank Baskett sure picked the wrong transgender weed dealer

Here's a fun one just for the pure absurdity of it all. In an attempt to "set the record straight" about the time he allegedly, maybe did some sexy things with a transgender woman, former Eagles wide receiver and sometimes husband to Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson, Hank Baskett opened up to People Magazine about what really happened.

Here's how People tell it (they got the exxxclusive):

Last April, Baskett says he encountered a couple in a grocery store parking lot smoking marijuana. The former football player, 32, says he approached the couple to buy some pot; they gave him a phone number to call and, when he did, he was provided an address. Once he showed up at the home, Baskett says he used the restroom and when he emerged, "I saw something I thought I would never see in my life." 


Baskett says the person who answered the door, a transgender woman, was nude and making out with another transgender woman. "I froze," says Baskett, visibly shaking as he recalls the memory. Then, the woman who answered the door approached Baskett and fondled him through his basketball shorts. 


"I didn't engage in anything," he says. "It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you'll freeze. I don't know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out."

In case you weren't up to speed on what had previously been reported. The transgender woman told tabloids that Basket tracked her down via social media and that some "mutual masturbation" went down. This made for wonderfully awful reality TV for Kendra and Hank, the former of which apparently flushed her wedding ring down the toilet.

But Kendra believes Hank now.

"Hank was very naïve and gullible," she told People. "He thinks everybody is his friend. That led him to the hell that we've lived."

Eagles vets give rookies some bad, hilarious haircuts

These Super Bowl champions sure do know how to have fun … at the expense of the rookies.

The Eagles' veterans on Tuesday took to social media to showcase their hazing of the team's rookies. Don't worry, it's not the bad kind of hazing. Except if you think bad haircuts and no eyebrows are cruel.

We're going to let the haircuts do the talking.

Eagles fans troll Patriots fans again with billboard outside Gillette Stadium

Eagles fans troll Patriots fans again with billboard outside Gillette Stadium

The Eagles swear they've moved on from Super Bowl LII, but fans? Yeah, that's never going to happen.

With the Super Bowl rematch just two days away and the Birds heading up to Foxboro, Massachusetts, Eagles fans are making sure the Patriots and their fans remember who won the Super Bowl just a few months ago.

Gina Lewis, a Massachusetts-based Birds fan, erected a billboard at the intersection of Route 1 and North Street, which is about one mile outside of Gillette Stadium.

So folks driving to Gillette Stadium from Boston, and even up from Philly, will see the billboard as they head to the Eagles-Patriots preseason game Thursday.

In terms of billboards, it's not exactly the prettiest. The idea was fantastic, but the execution could have been better. The notion that Patriots fans will have to be reminded that the Eagles beat New England, 41-33, in Super Bowl LII is brilliant.

That's not a knock on the person who designed the billboard, though. Jordan Spector is a Philadelphia-based artist who designed the billboard.

The original text on the billboard was supposed to be: "No one likes us and we don’t care." But the billboard company forced them to change it.

To be fair to Spector, the actual design of the billboard is crisper than the one that went up. You can support Spector's work (you should because art is fun) here.

Some background as to how the billboard came to be a thing. Back in June, Lewis tweeted this:

It doesn't appear the coworker came through on his promise, but that doesn't really matter. Lewis started a GoFundMe, which remains active, to raise the $5,000 to pay for the billboard.

After it reached its goal, the GoFundMe remains active and the next $5,000 will be donated to Carson Wentz's AO1 Foundation. At the time of this posting, it's raised $6,530 out of its $10,000 goal.

If you're obliged to donate, you can here.
