Sixers' T.J. McConnell gets married as Nik Stauskas plays groomsman

Congratulations to T.J. McConnell and his wife, Valerie Guiliani!

Last night, at a ceremony in Pittsburgh, McConnell wed his high school sweetheart and, his Sixers teammate Nik Stauskas posted one of the first photos of the newlyweds on his Instagram with a special message.

In June, we caught up with the couple and Valerie shared that the wedding was the reason for T.J.’s new look last season.

"I think I said, 'You will not walk down the aisle with a buzzcut. It's just not happening,'" she said. "I think he thought he wouldn't look handsome with his hair and he looks so handsome with it."

It looks like he kept his word.

Stauskas, one of the groomsmen at the affair, told our Jessica Camerato about his excitement to be involved with the wedding during the spring.

"It meant a lot to be invited to the wedding," Stauskas said. "It's going to be a special day for me. I may shed a few tears."

No word on if Stauskas shed a tear, but we wish all the best to the newlyweds after their special day.

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.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
