Matthew McConaughey congratulates Nick Foles

Alright, alright, alright, count actor Matthew McConaughey in as an Eagles fan, or at least a Nick Foles fan.

John Bridges, the managing editor of the Austin American-Statesman newspaper, tweeted out this photo earlier today showing a full-page ad McConaughey purchased to congratulate Austin, Texas native Nick Foles on winning the Super Bowl one week ago.

McConaughey was born in nearby Uvalde, Texas, but resides and went to college in Austin, where Foles was born and raised.

Some have said that there needs to be a movie made about the Philadelphia Eagles season. Perhaps there will be some competition between Bradley Cooper and McConaughey for the role of the MVP.

The Dodgers are now calling Chase Utley 'dad'

Dodgers shortstop Kike Hernandez hit a two-run homer off Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning on Sunday to help spark his team’s 7-2 win over the Nationals on Sunday. 

Then he thanked his dad. 

Not his real one. 

In his postgame interview with SportsNet LA, the 26-year-old thanked his 39-year-old teammate Chase Utley, who is apparently a father figure. 

"After my first at-bat my dad Chase told me to use his bat, and I did, and first pitch I hit a homer,” Hernandez said. “It’s dad’s bat.”

So the Dodgers are now calling Utley dad. Fantastic. 

We've found the 1 thing that scares Joel Embiid

We've found the 1 thing that scares Joel Embiid

We've found the one thing Joel Embiid is afraid of.

It's not an opposing big man. 

It's water.

We all know Embiid would have no qualms about sliding into Rihanna's DMs, but prior to those pictures, it was difficult for his mates to get him down a slide in the Bahamas. As evidenced by this hilarious video from Sixers minority owner Michael Rubin.

@joelembiid is not a fan of water slides 😂 (@michaelgrubin)

Hey, as long as he doesn't have to face-up Hassan Whiteside in a pool, the Sixers should be OK.

In all seriousness though, Sixers fans would probably prefer that Embiid stays as far as possible from any type of contraption that could potentially lead to a freak injury.
