Nick Foles graces cover of Sports Illustrated's Super Bowl issue

Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles aren't just the talk of the town, they're the darlings of the country with a chance to take down Bill Belichick and the evil Patriot empire in the Super Bowl.

After his absolutely dominating performance in the NFC Championship game and unpredictable journey to the Super Bowl, Nick Foles graces this week's cover of Sports Illustrated.

It's not the first time Foles has had the honor of appearing on the cover of SI as quarterback of the Eagles. Remember all of those glorious photos from the Snow Bowl.

The story that appears to accompany the photo of Foles by Andy Benoit is titled "How the Eagles' backup plan became a Super Bowl blueprint."

The cover also includes a brief timeline of Foles' wild journey: 2013: Philly's QB of the future, 2016: Nearly quit football, 2018: Super savior.

Oh, and a guy named Tom Brady also gets his own cover. That story, unlike the Eagles one, appears to be online now.

Blue Jays bullpen overhears apparent breakup, tweets to offer help

Blue Jays bullpen overhears apparent breakup, tweets to offer help

There’s nothing like taking the person you love to a baseball game on a sunny, 80-degree night in Philadelphia. Unless you just so happen to break up with that person, in public and loud enough for the entire Toronto Blue Jays bullpen to hear you.

Looks like you’ve got a chance to make up and get an outside opinion from several members of a professional baseball team!

If you happen to know this couple, let them know that the Blue Jays are looking for them and a happily-ever-after ending could still be in reach.

If not, there’s always "The Bachelor."

Joel Embiid throws down playground dunk on poor soul

Where's Waldo?

How about Where's JoJo?

It's always awesome when Joel Embiid pops up around the city.

Let's be honest, it's hard to miss the Sixers' 7-foot-2 big man.

Like the time he was playing ball on the playground by Pat's and Geno's. Or the time he was just casually going for a run through the Philly streets.

Embiid was back at it Friday, hoopin' on the blacktop and dunking on a poor fella that had zero chance but gave good effort. According to the Twitter account @FeliciaRicci, who captured it all, the park was near Whole Foods on South St.

And later in the evening, Embiid was clearly tuning into Game 6 of the Cavaliers-Celtics Eastern Conference Finals series. He had some fun on Twitter, of course, stemming from a tweet he sent out earlier in the week.

Not a bad way to kick off the holiday weekend for Embiid.
