On the eve of their preseason opener, the Sixers had a special guest at practice:
Can you think of anyone better to give a young team a motivational speech?
“He’s obviously one of the best to do it,” T.J. McConnell said. “I was kind of in awe to see how humble and how hard he worked. It makes you open your eyes and shows how hard you have to work to be great.”

Before Doug Pederson was an underdog, he was a longshot.
Thanks to some super sleuthing from some folks on Reddit, specifically u/nosefinger1, it has been uncovered that Doug Pederson and his Calvary Baptist Academy football team made a brief appearance in the movie “The Longshots.”
Since we don’t condone piracy, here are some screenshots.
That has to be Doug, right? If you needed more proof, u/dr_rex uncovered some more info.
The movie, starring Ice Cube and directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, came out in 2008 and was a pretty significant box office flop. Perhaps they could have given the future Super Bowl-winning head coach a bigger role.
The Eagles are still the reigning Super Bowl champs and these people want everyone driving behind them to know it.
Some people will decorate their house, others got tattoos, but people on Twitter started sharing their custom license plates today and they’re spectacular.
Here’s a few.
Bravo, Eagles fans.
If you have a license plate you’d like to show off, too, send it to us!
