When it comes to New England vs. Philadelphia, nobody represents the hoagie mouths better than Tina Fey.
The Upper Darby native brought out her Philly bona fides on a pretty great sketch on Saturday Night Live last night.
The Revolutionary War sketch put the patriots of New England, led by host Natalie Portman and longtime SNLer Rachel Dratch, up against... well, pretty much everyone.
The New England contingent are all "dynasty!" this and "kiiiid" that. The insufferability was on point.
Tina Fey finally appears to defend the delegation from Philadelphia. She brought the Wawa hoagies.
Fey managed to squeeze a nod to punching police horses in among drops of mom-mom and pop-pop. She nails the pronunciation of Iggles and ends the bit offering to take it outside. Very accurate.
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."
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.
