It's a tradition unlike any other.
After a player gets drafted, he gains thousands of new fans and new followers on social media, many of whom decide to go back in time to learn a little more. Oftentimes, these hunts through Twitter history unearth a few posts that probably should have never happened or have been deleted a long time ago.
Enter Flyers draft pick Morgan Frost.
The Flyers traded with the St. Louis Blues to select the 18-year-old Frost with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NHL draft on Friday night and immediately, this Tweet surfaced — which has now been deleted.
Life comes at you fast, Morgan.
On that night, the Flyers lost to the Washington Capitals, 7-0, in a game that included a late melee in which Brayden Schenn, involved in this trade, received a game misconduct and goalie Ray Emery traded barbs with Braden Holtby.
In another Tweet, Frost was critical of the move the Flyers made to sign Vinny Lecavalier.
Born in Barrie, Ontario, Frost can root for any team he wants growing up and fans should probably give him some slack on these tweets surfacing, but a message to everyone on the night before you're going to get drafted: go through your feed and delete anything that could find its way onto this blog.
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!
Here's a tip for any and all business owners out there: Come up with a solid Joel Embiid pun, base a product around it and watch your sales go through the roof.
We've seen it with Philly's own Evil Genius Beer Company and their Trust the Process and Phantom of the Process beers.
And now a local mead —a honey-based alcoholic beverages — is catching on to the trend.
The Colony Meadery in Allentown released Joel Em-Mead Saturday (an all-time great name), a nice 6.9 percent alcoholic drink with hints of cherry, pomegranate and ginger. The drink was, of course, inspired by Embiid's love of Shirley Temples.
Unsurprisingly, the thing sold like crazy, with half of the 76 cases selling out in the first 10 minutes the mead went online, according to PhillyVoice.
The 76 cases? That was just a very convenient coincidence, CEO and co-founder Greg Heller-Labelle of The Colony Meadery told PhillyVoice.
"When it came out at 76 cases, we considered that a sign from the basketball gods," Heller-Labelle said. "We said, 'Well, that’s just perfect.'"
The mead was such a hit that Heller-Labelle even got requests for cases from Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand.
With the help of the popular Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast, the mead was sold along with a sweet poster.
If you missed out Saturday, there's still a chance to get your hands on some Joel Em-Mead.
Trust the (sales) process.
