The city of brotherly love is getting a dose of Tebow Time next season, as the Eagles reached a 1-year contract agreement with the QB.
Chip Kelly’s crazy roster moves continue to make headlines and shock the world, but this one comes as a huge surprise, especially since they already traded for Sam Bradford (how that move is going to play out or be utilized further, I have no idea yet).
A plan for Tebow must be set in place if Kelly is going to contradict his previously vocalized thoughts on Tebow.
Oh. Do we not remember that? Back in 2011 when Kelly was still at Oregon, he had this to say on the former Florida Gators Heisman winner:
“I look for a quarterback who can run and not a running back who can throw,” Kelly said four years ago. “I want a quarterback who can beat you with his arm. We are not a Tim Tebow type of quarterback team. I am not going to run my quarterback 20 times on power runs.” Read the rest of this entry »

This was the tweet that 21-year-old Jordan Spieth sent out just hours after winning the 79th Masters. Actually, “winning” just doesn’t encapsulate exactly what Spieth did this weekend at Augusta National.
Spieth led wire-to-wire, set a new 36-hole scoring record for the most storied golf course in the United States, hit the most birdies in tournament history, and tied an all-time Masters scoring record. So, yeah, “winning” doesn’t quite cut it.
What he did win or earn was America’s attention.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 21-year-old Spieth is finding success this early in his career. He’s got a near-flawless technique, he’s incredibly intelligent, he’s strong between the ears, and he has a respect for the game that extends far beyond his years.
Of course, comparisons are already being made to Tiger Woods, especially since Spieth is the youngest player to win the Masters since…well, Tiger in 1997. Read the rest of this entry »

Release Date: 4/20/15
On April 20th, Nashville rockers Turbo Fruits are set to release their fourth studio album, “No Control”. This album is a bit more toned down from some of their previous releases, but it’s far from mellow.

In a happy and well deserved twist, Loyola will be dedicating the new tennis center to the man who has been at the helm of the tennis program since 1979, and has earned over 700 wins during his tenure, Rick McClure.
The McClure Tennis Center is a stunning eight-court, lighted facility on the grounds of Ridley Athletic Complex. This new complex is only possible thanks to a generous, anonymous $3.2-million donation.
An opening reception will take place at 11:30am, and the dedication ceremony itself will start at 12:30pm. After the festivities end, the Hounds will play their first matches ever in the new complex when they play host to Bucknell.
All who attend are welcome to join McClure and the players in a post-match reception in the Class of 1968 Suite at Ridley.
