Dan Gross: SHADY & STEPH: A BITTER-TWEET ROMANCE

YONG KIM / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER LeSean McCoy might be smiling here, but the crossfire between him and the mother of his child - who she says McCoy isn't involved enough with - is nothing but embarrassing.

L eSEAN "SHADY" McCOY lived up to his nickname Saturday night when he embarked on a Twitter battle with his baby mama, calling her names and insisting that his followers also harass her on the social-media site.

A few hours later, the Eagles running back took down his Twitter page entirely.

First, he laughably posted that he was "hacked."

The baby-mama drama all began when McCoy innocently tweeted that he was in Puerto Rico on vacation. This led to a number of replies from @Angelface0330, whose account is still active, about the fact that McCoy is not enough involved with their son, who was born in April, according to the woman named Steph's Twitter profile.

With varying levels of profanity, Steph said that McCoy has herpes, mocked his penis size, said that his good friend had sex with his current girlfriend and also suggested that McCoy had recently performed oral sex on her in efforts to avoid child-support payments.

McCoy replied that Steph was a "broke bum" and a "nobody" who was trying to make her name off their son, and told his followers to "Tell @Angelface0330 to get a job n stop begging for child support money she a BUM needs me to LIVE sad!!!"

He also said, "I hit u n a week without knowing ya name . . . My son the only reason u have a life u broke stop frontn on IG . . . U BUM."

If we may translate: McCoy says he had sex with this woman less than a week after they met and he didn't know her name. He suggests that she's casting aspersions and inaccuracies on the social-media site Instagram.

CrossingBroad.com archived and posted dozens of tweets from the couple back and forth as well as from when McCoy started retweeting messages from his fans, harrassing the mother of his child.

Although obviously neither party needed to publicly attack the other and drag a baby into the fray, we sincerely doubt that McCoy was forced into having unprotected sex with this woman.

Perhaps it's time that the Eagles and all major sports teams finally add a Condom Instructor or even a Pulling-Out Coordinator to their coaching rosters.

Reps for McCoy did not return requests for comment Sunday. Steph, who continues to tweet about the matter, also did not return our inquiry.

PYT plug on 'SNL'

"A restaurant in Philadelphia has created a new taco that replaces the shell with slices of bacon," said "SNL" Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers on the show this weekend. "Of course, no matter how good it tastes, you're still in Philadelphia," Meyers yukked. His setup of course refers to a new offering at Tommy Up's PYT in the Piazza at Schmidts, in Northern Liberties. We asked Up about the plug. He replied "I wish they said PYT. Also, f--- NYC!"

Well-said.

Vegetarian Wing Bowl

Local comedians Hillary Rea and Larry Napolitano on Saturday present an evening of comedy and competitive eating that they insist is a tribute to Sportsradio 94 WIP's Wing Bowl 21. The first Veggie Wing Bowl Comedy Spectacular takes place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Adobe Cafe (1919 E. Passyunk).

"I've always dreamed of competing in the real Wing Bowl, but I'm a 5-5, 130-pound vegetarian," Rea explains. "My only other option was to try to compete as a Wingette in WIP's big show. But I really didn't want to become a stripper," she says.

Rea and Napolitano, who's 6 feet 5 and weighs 300-plus pounds, will eat seitan wings against the New Dreamz (Space 1026's Andrew Jeffrey Wright and Rose Luardo), as well as local characters the Necrosexual and Faberge Gregg (played by comics Jimmy Viola and Gregg Gethard).

Local comedians Carolyn Busa, Jim Ginty, T.J. Hurley and John Nunn will perform stand-up throughout the night and help to referee the wing contest.

Zito shoots in Delco

Actor Chuck Zito, who was a series regular on "Sons of Anarchy," was in Delaware County last week taping a reality-show pilot, according to the Delaware County Times. The bar-makeover series would star Zito helping other bar owners remodel their establishments. The first stop was 60 East (60 E. Baltimore), in Clifton Heights, formerly Tailgators.
