Two former Eagles to compete on the Bachelorette

On the last season of The Bachelor, Becca Kufrin, aka Becca K., won the show by ending up with former racecar driver Arie Luyendyk, aka Arie, only to have him call off the engagement and wedding on national TV and propose to the show’s runner-up, Lauren Burnham, aka Lauren B.

Let’s hope these former athletes treat her a little better.

Today on their Facebook page, The Bachelor revealed the men that would be vying for the heart of the once-scorn show contestant and two of them stood out, former Eagles TEs Clay Harbor and Colton Underwood.

Harbor probably doesn’t require as much googling as Underwood because he was drafted by the Eagles in 2010 in the fourth round and pulled in 114 catches and nearly 1,200 yards with eight scores in his career for four teams. He won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2016.

Underwood was literally on the Eagles’ practice squad for six days in 2014 and was on the practice squad for two other teams without appearing in an NFL game.

If you already watch the show, a few former NFL players could be an interesting wrinkle to the house dynamic, but if you’re not a fan, I’m not sure these names, even as Eagles fans, will pull you in.

The show kicks off on May 28 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Chase Utley receives Father's Day gifts from his … Dodgers teammate

On May 20, Chase Utley indicated that his Dodger teammates have started calling him dad, so it stands to reason that on Father’s Day, they would come bearing gifts for the oldest position player in the National League.

Utley posted these two photos to his Instagram Story today showing gifts from teammate Kike Hernandez, which includes one awesome T-shirt.

In addition to his fake teammate son, Utley also has two sons, six-year-old Benjamin and three-year-old Max, who got to take part in a very special art project for their dad. Chase gave his sons a pair of white cleats to color on, which he wore for today’s game against the Giants.

They turned out how you’d expect, which is a pretty cool thing for Chase to wear on Father’s Day.

If you can’t get enough cuteness from members of the 2008 Phillies, there’s a video of Cole Hamels having tea with his five-year-old daughter, Reeve, that will melt your heart.

Baseball is a sport that can uniquely bring families together, whether someone is your real dad or just the father figure in the clubhouse.

Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter on Father's Day is ridiculously adorable

OK, so the caption of Fox Sports Southwest's video is maybe a little misleading.

"The absolute CUTEST thing you will see this Fathers Day is Cole Hamels having tea with his daughter!" the caption reads.

I'm guessing that, if you're a dad, the cutest thing you'll see this Father's Day is your own kid(s). 

But man, this is an adorable video.

Former Phillie (and 2008 World Series MVP) Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi adopted five-year-old Reeve, one of their four children, from Ethiopia as a baby after she was abandoned at birth, found alone in a field by the police and placed in an orphanage. In the video, she asks Cole a series of rapid-fire questions and looks like she's having an absolute blast hanging out with her dad. So does Cole.

"If you were retired, what would you do?" Reeve asks.

"How 'bout I'd just like to be a dad, would that be good?" Hamels responds.
