I normally write a long, rambling open for The Sesh. Sometimes it’s hilarious, other times it’s a nonsensical stream of consciousness. It’s often self-indulgent, but not in a pompous (dickish?) way. But most importantly, it’s always based on strong feelings about one thing or another – and as you know, I tell you exactly how I feel. For better or worse. However, today, I have nothing to bloviate about. Nary (nary?) a thing that inspires me to have feelings, much less those of a strong nature. Sure, I could’ve forced something about Tim (don’t call me Timmy) Jernigan’s sprained ankle or written a bunch of words about how insane we are as a fanbase to care so much about OTA’s – or more succinctly – football without pads and hitting (aka not football). Do other fanbases monitor these meaningless team activities as much as we do? No way, right? Regardless, the point is – I won’t subject you to that. I care about you guys too much. I can’t lie to you and fake my way through an open because there’s nothing I feel passionate enough to write it about. Oh wait, that’s what I just did! With that in (your blown) mind – let’s get to breaking down those (not) football activities with everything we got. But first…
Some shameless self/site promotion. Jon Marks shared three things he’s thinking about the Eagles. Spoiler alert: I agree with his thoughts – even if it pains my soul to give Howie Roseman credit for anything. Also, one Eagles rookie has been making some noise (in a good way) so far during OTA’s – here’s Jack Fritz with more. Alright, now that my shilling duties are out of the way, let’s tear through some Eagles notes.
Notes? Did someone say notes? I’ve got lots of notes. Well, to be more precise, my buddy BLG has (practice) notes for you. I promise you’ll enjoy them, especially if you’re a fan of Carson Wentz and the #SexyDeepBall.
What’s that? You want more notes? Done. This time it’s Jimmy Kempski providing the (practice) notes. I guess, in a sense, I’m providing notes too – in that I’m creating notes about notes. My head hurts. Let’s move on.
Moving on, let’s graduate from notes to observations. Jeff McLane provides us with his (practice) observations from yesterday. Personally, I’m more of a notes guy than an observations guy, but to each their own. Am I right?
Dave Zangaro would tell me I’m not right. As he, like McLane, chose to convey his (practice) observations as well. Have I sufficiently killed this “notes” and “observations” thing yet? Definitely, right? Yeah. I have a tendency to do that.
As a result, let’s end this shit now before I can do any more damage. Oh wait, as this post approaches it’s end, the damage is only beginning. Yup, that’s right kids — Twitter Time:
Wentz rolled to his left and threw across his body to hit Alshon Jeffery for a deep TD. I’d say Carson’s arm strength isn’t bad. #Eagles

“Wentz to Jeffery” has such a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Not to mention the #SexyDeepBall
#Eagles Darren Sproles on possibly retiring at end of season: “We’ll see. After we make the playoffs, come back and ask me again.”
— Ed Kracz (@kracze) June 5, 2017
I honestly believe Darren Sproles could play for another 10 years if he wanted to. He may be better now than he’s ever been. It’s crazy. On related note, I don’t think he’s human.
Reich says Eagles second team guards should be starting on most other teams. #Eagles

Reich? Am I supposed to know who that is? Reich…Reich..Reich…Oh! Frank Reich. Forgot about that guy. Anyhoo, yay guards, I guess.
If any teams were talking to Jeremy Maclin before 4:00 p.m. ET on Monday, they were tampering https://t.co/JEDveHsjNe

Kinda like how the Chiefs tampered to get Maclin in the first place? #TamperingBurn
I played 3 games… this list is a joke. https://t.co/KnKDX1p816

Early frontrunner for tweet of the year. Also, JJ Watt – not a list guy. Noted.

There’s so much going on here I don’t even know what to say. The whole thing is just…weird. From the Bryce Harper jersey Rex is wearing, to the weirdo sticking his tongue out in the back, to the fact that all the girls look like they could be the Ryan brothers’ children — it’s all f*cking weird. I feel dirty just looking at it.
Ravens signed veteran CB Brandon Boykin.

Ozzie does it again.
— Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) June 6, 2017
I have no idea what Francesa said to elicit this reaction, but it’s hilarious nonetheless. More importantly, who knew Smash Mouth was still a thing?

Give me Jordan and the points. I’d bet my life on it.

That Nashville crowd is amazing. The energy is palpable and I don’t think any hockey crowd has ever sounded louder on my TV. Props. Speaking of props…
