Weapon X Mailbag: Who is the tomato pie of Philly sports?


We’re in full offseason mode and it’s a lull interval, so I’m going to go goofy with our lead query this week:

@TheNotoriusGVB: Who’s the tomato pie of Philly sports activities? (Undecided I even know what I imply, however I really feel such as you’ll determine it out.)

I don’t wish to overthink this, so I’m going with the primary participant who involves thoughts: David Akers. Now, there was this huge controversy on Twitter earlier within the week after somebody not From Right here mentioned they didn’t get why folks like tomato pie in Philly. Ought to tomato pie be your favourite meals? No. Is tomato pie superior in the suitable setting, one thing to munch on at a vacation social gathering or tailgate whilst you’re selecting on meals all day and throwing them again? Completely.

Taking a chew of it when the sauce thickens after being omitted and getting room temperature simply hits completely. Seize a pie from Cacia’s on Ritner Avenue in South Philly and produce it to Jetro or the Okay Lot in Week 2. You’ll be the MVP of the tailgate.

So why is that David Akers? Akers, whereas a several-time Professional Bowler, was in the end a complementary participant as a kicker. Nonetheless, he was rattling good for a very long time. We took without any consideration having an superior kicker all these years. With the way in which kicking woes have plagued the crew at instances since then, I yearn for the times of David “Inexperienced” Akers.

Its excellence is constant. You may take tomato pie without any consideration. Don’t. Have a slice whilst you’re stress-eating throughout the Dallas Monday Evening Soccer sport. You’ll find it irresistible. For those who don’t order one the next sport, you’ll assume, “Rattling, I actually want we nonetheless had tomato pie.”

I want Akers may nonetheless be the Eagles’ kicker. I want I may have some tomato pie proper now.

[BLG Note: I’d just like to add that Trenton tomato pie is arguably the GOAT pizza style. Just had one over the weekend and it was fantastic, as always. Pictured below.]

@Aidan00459305: Who’s realistically getting traded on the deadline this yr for the Eagles?

Howie Roseman has persistently been essentially the most aggressive entrance workplace government within the league. Whereas I might truly start getting feelers on the market for old-ish stars like Fletcher Cox who may nonetheless command a hefty return, I’ll consider it once I see because it considerations this franchise.

This principally comes down as to whether you assume the Eagles are going to make a commerce for Deshaun Watson, proper? I’ve written beforehand that I need nothing to do with Watson at this present time limit for moral and ethical causes.

There are two methods to have a look at the Watson rumors:

  • The Eagles are beginning a second-year, second-round quarterback with 4 profession begins and it is sensible for both the Texans or Watson’s agent to leak them as an social gathering.

My head says it’s the primary choice, however my coronary heart says it’s the second.

Once more, as I discussed concerning Roseman’s aggressive nature, I can’t say that the sort of deal would shock me.

@CitizensBankers: Ideas on the Eternals trailer?

I’m into it! There’s been some controversy surrounding it on condition that the characters’ designs and outfits, in addition to the surroundings, are fairly muted. That’s a convincing distinction from what we noticed when the characters have been initially created by comedian e book legend Jack Kirby within the ‘70s. For those who loved the technicolor thrills of Thor: Ragnarok, that’s as a result of that movie had Kirby’s fingerprints throughout it. Eternals? Not a lot, at the very least on the floor.

It’s a dangerous transfer on Disney/Marvel’s half. We’ve seen one other fully unknown solid of characters explode into stars with the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, however this one appears even grander in scope. With the concept the Eternals themselves have been on the Earth for hundreds of years, we’re probably going to see some retconning and get a take a look at previous main MCU occasions by way of a special prism.

Nonetheless, that solid is completely bonkers. Chloe Zhao simply received an Oscar as a director. Marvel Studios is attempting to make this their Sport of Thrones and that comparability goes past the truth that two of the Stark kids can be on this. The palace intrigue may hook us simply as Thrones did.
