With numerous April Fool’s rumors swirling around the Philly sports world today, as probably every major market, lets put to rest a few articles that some assholes tought would be hilarious to post.
Lito traded to Detroit Lions in exchange for WR Roy Williams. Philly.com
A source in Dallas say that Lito could end up in Cinci and the Eagles could land Ocho Cinco. Yahoo Sports
This however is true, and really awesome.
The Eagles were awarded 3 more draft picks (a 4th rounder and two 6th rounders) PhiladelphiaEagles.com
And we are getting some nice offers apparently for Lito, just wait as the draft nears. OTR
On a more serious note now, I went home for lunch today and tuned into ESPN to hear the NFL segment where they put teams on the clock and go over their needs and wants as the draft approaches.
The Vikings happened to be the featured team and at first they discussed their incredible rookie sensation Adrian Peterson and how they are stacked at RB with Chester Taylor spelling him. After that they questioned their quarterback position (Travaris Jackson) and mentioned how Donovan McNabb is their guy to fill the spot. WHAT THE F?
I thought all this Donovan trade talk was put to bed a while ago, and here we have ESPN, the Mecca that is sports TV and Media, broadcasting (spreading more rumors) to the world that this guy is back on the market and most likely going to be dealt. I swear these fuckers just make shit up to fill time on their show. Personally I don’t know where they come up with this stuff, and it seems as though their researchers/reporters in the field have as much access and knowledge as a blogger like myself.
