It was a glorious Sunday in Philadelphia. The Eagles defeated the Browns behind rookie quarterback Carson Wentz’s solid debut, and the Sixers’ top pick in the 2016 Draft wasn’t arrested for running onto Lincoln Financial Field during the contest.
But maybe, just maybe, Ben Simmons never had any intention of running on the field or wreaking havoc on the game, which makes him unlike most Philadelphia sports fans.
A billion, Ben? That number is far too high to reach. Ad Week wrote in April that Twitter has 300 million active users, so unless people created 700 million pornbots between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, this was never going to happen. That’s sad, because I would have loved to have seen how many security guards would have been required to bring down the 6-foot-10, 240-pound Simmons.
The Eagles Twitter account got involved and encouraged law-breaking activity.
Simmons was there with teammate Joel Embiid, and it appears they were lucky enough to meet the Most Interesting Man in the World from those Dos Equis ads.
They were shown on the scoreboard and cheered by fans during the third quarter. Although, were those cheers of encouragement to run on the field that were ignored? It’s probably not wise to offend Eagles fans, guys. Maybe next time you should show some backbone and run on the field.
