Jakub Voracek sprays annoying Leafs fan with water

This guy deserved it, right?

During Saturday's 4-2 win for the Flyers, one fan got all wet after annoying Jakub Voracek. As seen in the video below, the Toronto Maple Leafs fan was cheering and banged on the glass behind the winger’s head and Voracek sprayed him with water through a crack in the glass.

This is how Jake Voracek dealt with an annoying Leafs fan tonight 😂👌

Voracek also did some damage on the ice, too, as he scored his second goal of the season and collected his 14th assist. Those 14 assists are good for second in the NHL.

Don’t mess with Jake.

Aspiring astronaut Joel Embiid found Eric Jr. tweets funny

One of the sad things about the NBA offseason is that we don't get quite as much Joel Embiid in our lives on a regular basis.

Sure, he'll pop up at a local basketball court every now and then or maybe at a charity soccer event but we don't get to see him on our television every third day or so. That's a bummer for trusters of the process.

Thankfully, Vulture's Nate Jones caught up with Jojo the other day to ask him about some of the more eventful moments of the offseason thus far, such as Bryan Colangelo's burner accounts and his playground antics.

Embiid's answers rarely disappoint.

Jones: One of the things you’re famous for doing in the off-season is dunking on five-foot-tall white guys. Are you going to be doing more of that this summer?

Embiid: I don’t know. That’s not something I wake up in the morning like, I’m gonna go to the court and dunk on people. It’s just usually I go do my regular stuff, play tennis, and then some random fans happen to be talking shit, so then I gotta teach them a lesson. And that’s what I do.

I love it so much. Jo just has to teach fools a lesson. So that's what he does.

When asked about Colangelo's burner accounts, he calls Eric Jr., "my boy" and says he enjoyed the collar tweets: "The collar tweets were actually really fun. I enjoyed that one. Those were funny."

There's some other funny stuff mixed in, so go check out the whole Q&A, and be happy that these words actually came out of Joel Embiid's mouth:

I’ve always wanted to be an astronaut.

Are you listening, Elon Musk? Make it happen. But not until he retires in 17 years. Maybe he can head up Donald Trump's Space Force at that point. Nobody would mess with Joel Embiid in space.

Eagles players thoroughly enjoyed Baker Mayfield owning Colin Cowherd

Baker Mayfield wasn't universally praised before being drafted into the NFL. Much of the criticism surrounding him was somewhat flimsy, however.

Take Colin Cowherd for example -- speaking of guys who are not universally praised lol. He's still grasping at straws.

Cowherd had Mayfield on his show and pointed to a clip in which the quarterback tossed a touchdown and ran over to celebrate with the Ohklahoma band and student section instead of his teammates. Cowherd pointed to it being an example of Mayfield lacking... something?

Mayfield wasn't having it tough and responded in fantastic fashion. Watch the exchange below.

Plenty of people on Twitter thoroughly enjoyed the exchange; a couple of Eagles players among them.

Chris Long liked it. Lane Johnson loved it. Somebody else presumably wanted more of it.
