Man wears Phillie Phanatic hat in license photo for ‘religious purposes’

Man wears Phillie Phanatic hat in license photo for ‘religious purposes’

Think you look especially dashing in your driver’s license photo?

Think again.

We have found the best photo ever taken.

After an Arizona man won the right to express his religion and wear a spaghetti colander on his head in his driver’s license photo, one man, Anthony F., has done one better.

He got his photo taken in a Phillie Phanatic hat and posted it to Reddit.

Anthony, who now lives in San Diego, California, received the Phanatic hat from his dad, a Phillies’ season-ticket holder, and he decided to wear the hat for his driver’s license photo.

He indicated that in order to wear the hat, he had to write a statement that it was for religious purposes.

In a Reddit direct message, Anthony, who goes by "WorkinSD" on the social media platform, provided the following. We're providing an edited version.

They told me to take it off. I told them it was a religious head garb. She kinda rolled her eyes at me, here we go and said, 'You are going to need to write something down about it because my ID # is going to be all over this.

I Wrote and signed a statement, 'I am required by my religion to wear this specific religious head garb in my picture.' Then they took the photo.

I did it too because no matter how much they suck, they are still my team. That and because everyone told me I wouldn't be able to.

Unfortunately, you cannot see my tuxedo T-shirt in the photo.

This is so ridiculous that it’s awesome. Kudos to Anthony for the next five years.

He will have the best driver’s license in the United States.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
