Rihanna has a crush on Eagles' Kendricks

Posted: January 08, 2014

MYCHAL KENDRICKS scored a shout-out from Rihanna yesterday.

The singer listed the Eagles linebacker as her choice on Instagram's "Man Crush Monday," posting a photo of Kendricks with the comment, "Is it Monday? Cuz chhh . . . #MCM"

Rihanna has a history of athletic attraction, having been linked to Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, Cavaliers center (and former Sixer) Andrew Bynum, Heat forward Rashard Lewis, and Knicks guard J.R. Smith.

Kendricks, who bears a striking resemblence to Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, didn't seem thrilled about his not-so-secret admirer.

"Some of the guys told me about it. They were busting my chops a little," Kendricks told CSN Philly.

When asked whether he'd like to meet her, Kendricks said, "I don't want to talk about this, y'all."

Who dat at 4:30 a.m.?

As it turns out, Saints fans are just as passionate as their Eagles counterparts.

After beating the Birds on Saturday night, the Saints arrived at Louis Armstrong New Orleans Internationl airport at 4:30 a.m. Sunday and were greeted by hundreds of cheering, diehard supporters.

"In my 10 years in the NFL, I have never witnessed anything like that," Saints tight end Benjamin Watson said on a conference call yesterday. "You are talking about a couple hundred people out there at 4:30 in the morning welcoming a football team back. You just don't see that at a lot of other places."

Tastefully done

If you're looking for a unique way to support the U.S. Olympic hockey team, Labatt's beer has just the thing for you.

While the brewery is headquartered in Canada, it's the independent U.S. branch that is marketing special-edition cans of suds featuring images of the Olympic jerseys from the 2010, 2002, 1990 and 1960 U.S. teams.

We'll drink to that.
