Watch Sam Morin with the monster takedown


Watch Sam Morin with the monster takedown

It was just yesterday that we wrote a post wondering where Sam Morin is and how the Flyers need him.

Welp, Morin went and reminded us of exactly where he was and why the Flyers really do need him.

As you're likely aware, Morin is honing his game with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and he found himself in a scrap last night against the Springfield Thunderbirds' Bobby Farnham.

It was Big Sam who brought the thunder. Okay, so maybe the fight never really got going but the takedown is tough to argue with. Props to the smaller Farnham for even attempting to mess with Sam.

Former Eagles WR Jason Avant competes on American Ninja Warrior

On the next episode of American Ninja Warrior, airing June 25 at 9 p.m. on NBC, former longtime Eagle Jason Avant competes with Jalen Mills and Quintin Mikell in attendance to cheer him on.

Avant, 35, appeared in 148 games in the NFL, 116 with the Eagles, before retiring and settling in the area and opening Launch, a trampoline park in Deptford, New Jersey.

He has to make it through the first round … right?

The show’s Facebook page gave this preview of his run through the course.

He seems to have a little trouble on the beginning stages of the course, but, would they really tease Avant’s run only for him to end up losing? My completely uninformed guess is that Avant makes it to the end and smashes the buzzer.

I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see.

Cheesesteaks are great.

People who are new to Philadelphia should eat cheesesteaks. People who are not new to Philadelphia should also eat cheesesteaks.

New 76ers draft pick Zhaire Smith is new to Philadelphia so he went to eat a cheesesteak.

Thankfully, it was a pretty good one at Jim's Steaks on South Street. It appears as if there is no ketchup or other strange substances on his cheesesteak. Hot peppers are not only acceptable but encouraged, in my humble cheesesteak eating opinion.

Congrats, Zhaire for enjoying a cheesesteak successfully without embarrassment.

You can learn much more about Smith and his abilities and fit with the Sixers right here.
