Tuesday is a big day for Philadelphia Phillies fans. We'll finally get a glimpse of highly-touted shortstop J.P. Crawford in a Phillies uniform.
It's one of the few moments fans have been looking forward to in an otherwise bleak season.
It's obviously a big day for his friends and family as well.
J.P.'s older sister Eliza posted an emotional message to her Twitter account talking about what it means to her and the family.
Eliza talks about how a 3-year-old J.P. would cry when he couldn't play in her tee-ball games but also how they grew up bonding over playing catch.
"I swear from the time I seen him hit and throw a ball I knew my parents gave birth to a future star and I was going to have a brother with the potential of playin in the MLB," she wrote.
"This guy really worked his butt off to make his dreams become a reality."
J.P. will take the next step in making more dreams become a reality tonight as he suits up for the Phils as they take on the New York Mets. No word just yet on whether he'll get the start.
The Eagles are still the reigning Super Bowl champs and these people want everyone driving behind them to know it.
Some people will decorate their house, others got tattoos, but people on Twitter started sharing their custom license plates today and they’re spectacular.
Here’s a few.
Bravo, Eagles fans.
If you have a license plate you’d like to show off, too, send it to us!
Here's a tip for any and all business owners out there: Come up with a solid Joel Embiid pun, base a product around it and watch your sales go through the roof.
We've seen it with Philly's own Evil Genius Beer Company and their Trust the Process and Phantom of the Process beers.
And now a local mead —a honey-based alcoholic beverages — is catching on to the trend.
The Colony Meadery in Allentown released Joel Em-Mead Saturday (an all-time great name), a nice 6.9 percent alcoholic drink with hints of cherry, pomegranate and ginger. The drink was, of course, inspired by Embiid's love of Shirley Temples.
Unsurprisingly, the thing sold like crazy, with half of the 76 cases selling out in the first 10 minutes the mead went online, according to PhillyVoice.
The 76 cases? That was just a very convenient coincidence, CEO and co-founder Greg Heller-Labelle of The Colony Meadery told PhillyVoice.
"When it came out at 76 cases, we considered that a sign from the basketball gods," Heller-Labelle said. "We said, 'Well, that’s just perfect.'"
The mead was such a hit that Heller-Labelle even got requests for cases from Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand.
With the help of the popular Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast, the mead was sold along with a sweet poster.
If you missed out Saturday, there's still a chance to get your hands on some Joel Em-Mead.
Trust the (sales) process.
