Welcome back from a weekend of Erin Express and other debauchery going down in Philly this week. Enjoy today because you’ll be cramped in your house for the next two days…

How the trophy wives on the Main Line are handling their shopping today.

 

 

Monday comes at you fast.

Joe Frazier was cast to play Clubber Lang in Rocky III, but kicked Stallone’s ass so badly they decided to go with an actor instead. Could you imagine if we never heard “I pity the fool?”

Since people like the story about Hulk Hogan , maybe you will like this one which leads to the discovery of Mr. T who went on to give an incredible performance as CLUBBER LANG! In Rocky three I thought we should use a REAL fighter , just to push the envelope to where fighting films had never gone before. so I decided to use the legendary heavyweight champion from Philadelphia, Smokin' Joe Frazier to play the brutal CLUBBER LANG So he cheerfully came to the gym , Very excited, very happy, very brightly dressed all in green. Green pants , green shoes, green hat, green shirt, green suspenders! He wanted the part very badly , and believe me I wanted him to get it too ..Smokin' Joe Frazier fighting Rocky !? This would be seriously entertaining, actually unbelievable !!!!! SoI naïvely said why don't we get into the ring and move around a little and see how we look together. I didn't realize it at the time, but This was like going into a lions cage covered in steak sauce and asking " how do you think I will taste ?" This was a very Dumb idea… Very bad. Joe was one of the most punishing fighters that ever lived and other boxers would honestly say that after they fought Smokin' Joe, they were never , ever the same.… Of course I thought that was a slight exaggeration, and I wanted our movie to be special, very realistic no matter what the price… Again in retrospect, A very foolhardy, hazardous , and homicidal concept. Once in the ring, I figured I just move around and avoid his punches , and that idea work well for about two seconds .. Simply because the Next thing I knew there was a Thunderous left hook planted extremely deep in my body, And an overhand right that resembled a falling piano landing just above my left eye .. The world was now spinning in several directions at the same time… Anyway I felt bad for Joe and did not want him to hurt his hands anymore and decided to call it a day. In retrospect,It was a wonderful afternoon meeting The legendary Joe Frazier and getting six stitches but it was also A brilliant realization that I needed someone like Mr. T in my life, more about that later!

Tie goes to the runner right?

Good old fashioned brouhaha featuring Ridley and CB West Hockey at Hatfield Ice.

My favorite sporting events at Lansdale Catholic were the hockey games. Anything goes at Hatfield Ice. It’s not really school sanctioned so there aren’t any administrators who attend. I’ve seen more on/off ice fights at LC Hockey games then any other sport.

 

How does anyone linked to the Trump Administration leave their house? They’re under a constant microscope–and granted they mostly brought it on themselves–but Sean Spicer going to an Apple Store is bananas. Dude you were mocked on the best SNL skit this season and have been on every major news org in America. Someone is bound to harass you. You have aides to do this work.

 

FloCombat reports a Las Vegas venue is holding the date for a match between McGregor and Mayweather.

Sources close to FloCombat have confirmed T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas has put the June 10 date on hold for the mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.

 

Every game time and broadcast group for the NCAA Tournament.

Every year there is some unfunny sap (Darren Rovell) that tweets this and goes viral. Every year.

 

Temple’s own Hall and Oates are throwing their hat in the ring for Philadelphia Concert Supremacy. The flyer for the gig is so Philly it hurts.

Glen Howerton–Dennis from ‘Always Sunny’–seems like he may be leaving the show.

 

One way to get interested in the WBC.

 

Final Season of ‘GOT’ will only be six episodes long.
