The immediate connotation of the phrase "one-hit wonder" is negative. Clearly anyone with only one hit – as amazing as that song may sound – was never talented enough to really do anything with it. While that may be true for the majority of artists who wear that unfortunate title, there are a couple of exceptions who break through, creating a new category – the two- or three-hit wonder.

The Philadelphia Eagles blew a 17-point lead against the Washington Football Team. That’s it. That’s the column. What more do you want me to write? What else is there to really discuss about how brutal of a loss it was? It was the most embarrassing loss of the first week around the entire NFL. Even the Jaguars won!

There is really no other way to put this — and please know that I get just how absurd it might sound if you say it out loud — but there is a ridiculous amount of pressure on two young Eagles players this season. Yes, ridiculous, and it comes with the threat of a rather large domino effect if one or both can’t live up to the hype. You may think it rather strange to put so much pressure on a rookie wide receiver or a second-year running back, but this is the situation the Eagles have set up, for better or worse.

Once again, the deck of the Titanic will be shuffled around, making sure there will be difficulty in pinpointing who is actually responsible for all of these terrible decisions. So instead of pounding the pavement with my bare knuckles for the next 600 words, let me offer a solution to getting out of this real trouble.

Carter Hart is the most valuable athlete to play a sport in Philadelphia — maybe in the last 15 years.

This is tough to watch. It’s even tougher to say. The Sixers are an absolute train wreck. This is a problem from top down and has put this team in the worst possible place: NBA purgatory, just good enough to make the playoffs, just bad enough to get knocked out in the first round.

You really know things are starting to return to normal when absurd expectations are attached to a team. There was always a fine line between being happy your team won and then attaching some ridiculous future to said team, one that if not met, provides nothing but anguish.

Major League Baseball decided to leave the fate of a team up to the ball players.

Welcome home, Bryce Harper. The man is going to be here for a while and has had no issue settling in. Harper has gone to many lengths to embrace the fans - successfully – and is now throwing his hat in the GM ring. As one of those aforementioned fans, I couldn’t be happier.
