Philly donut shop takes 'Eagles fan on greased pole' to new delicious heights

Eagles fans have taken the whole greased pole thing to delicious new heights.

As a quick refresher: local police in Philly were greasing up poles in the heart of the city to make it tougher for Eagles fans to climb up during the celebration of the NFC Championship win over the Vikings.

People found this hilarious. Many took it as a challenge.

The greased pole phenomenon has inspired local Philadephia shops in impressive ways.

Dottie's Donuts, who has shops in West Philadelphia and Queen's Village, made a unique and delicious donut-type pastry in honor of the pole.

They're calling this piece of art "Eagles fan on greased pole" and describe it as a "chocolate dough with vanilla and matcha glaze. Deluxe: raspberry vanilla, cookie butter, matcha pistachio. Filled: pb vanilla butter cream, cookies & custard." 

This Eagles fan loved it:

And here's how it looks next to relatively boring normal donuts in comparison:

My next favorite greased-pole inspired creation is the below t-shirt from Hog Island Press. Just a classy t-shirt with a portion of the proceeds going to help the underdogs at the SPCA.

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.
