Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Crushing Joel Embiid News For The Sixers And The Process

RTRS 071115

What is there to say?

Bad Joel Embiid news.

Embiid, Summer League, Sauce Castillo and Kevin Durant talk in the new Ricky.

Also, we mentioned before, Spike’s dog Rebel is a rescue from Aruba, and you can help the dog killing in Aruba. There is a horrible stray dog problem in Aruba, and they round them up and kill them every day. Please donate to the below spay and neuter campaign or adopt an Aruban dog at ARF Aruba. It’s easy!

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Draft Countdown and NBA Scout Elan Vinokurov

kristaps-2

The draft is just days away, and we haven’t had any setbacks. Things are just not healing as quickly as we’d like them to.

We recap the week in Sixers, including the new uniforms, Spike’s fight on WIP, and the lack of updates on Joel Embiid. Then the guys have real life NBA Scout Elan Vinokurov, founder of EV Hoops on to explain what the life of a scout is like, his relationship with NBA teams, and his thoughts on any potential Sixers. They also give their last thoughts on the NBA Finals, including Andre Iguodala’s Finals MVP Award.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: #OneSixEleven Sixers Lottery Party Recap

474019402

Well, that was pretty great.

There are two things you have to know about the second annual Rights To Ricky Sanchez / Liberty Ballers Lottery Party. 1. Andrew Sharp showed up, and took a picture with this guy. 2. They had to stop letting people into Buffalo Wild Wings on a Tuesday night because they were at capacity. Yikes!

Thank you so much for coming out. Mike and I decided that rather than eat like civilized human beings, we’d go do a podcast. Live podcast highlights will be released sometime on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for supporting the podcast. It means a lot to both of us.

Don’t forget to become a fan of Liberty Ballers in The Basketball Tournament.

MORE DETAILS

T-SHIRTS

IF YOU ORDERED A SHIRT FOR PARTY PICKUP, PLEASE CLICK ON THIS AND READ THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT GETTING YOUR SHIRT.

Thank you, of course, to the folks at Cheesesteaktees for the production and selling of the shirts, and our friend Kevin Lennertz (@KevinLennertz) for the design.

Thanks to my wife for helping to man the t-shirt booth. Thanks to Tom Hogg from Cheesesteaktees for helping.

If you were an idiot and didn’t order one, we will have a VERY LIMITED QUANTITY to sell on site, cash only.

FREE RIDES

logo_mightyA bunch of people were complaining that WAAAAHHHH the Northeast is too far and WAAAAAHHHH they wanted to drink. Now, thanks to the ridesharing service LYFT, you’ll get a ride for free (up to $20). Just download the app, and enter promo code ONESIXELEVEN in the payments section of the app. Get the app HERE or on the Apple App Store or Google Play for Android.

TIMING

People get there very early last year. You should do that this year as well. Because the lottery itself is about 10 minutes long, the party itself is mostly before the lottery happens. Of course, when we get #OneSixEleven, we’ll stay all night. We’ll start officially at 6pm, but Mike and Spike will be there earlier than that.

THE LIVE RICKY RECORDING

We’ll be recording a LIVE version of The Rights To Ricky Sanchez (we think). It will start around 6:45. It might be a disaster, but we’re going to try. There will likely be a VERY SPECIAL GUEST.

SPECIALS

It’s TRADITIONAL TUESDAY at Buffalo Wild Wings, meaning wings are just .65 cents each. ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Eat a lot of them. Eat the hell out of them with their 16 signature sauces and five dry rubs. Also, if you can get there before 6pm, you can take advantage of their Happy Hour specials, including $3 select appetizers(Mozzarella sticks, Roasted Garlic Mushrooms, Chili con Queso Dip & tortilla chips, Mini Corn Dogs, a Regular sized order of Beer Battered Onion Rings and Tortila Chips & Salsa). They have $3 liquor specials for Absolut, Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan, as well as $3-$5 23oz Tall Draft Beers with 30 beers on tap!

Also, while you’re there, sign up to host your Fantasy Football Draft Party at BWW. Book your Fantasy Football party with 10 or more people and receive a FF Draft Kit filled with: A draft board, stickers with the players names on them, (20) $5 coupons for future purchases, the Brag Flag, and (10) bottle openers with the BWW logo. The kits are limited, so book your party ASAP!

GIVEAWAYS

Thanks to our friend Marty at Sports Authority, we have a couple of sweet Sixers Starter satin jackets to give away. Buy all your Sixers gear at Sports Authority. 

HASHTAG

The official hashtag of the event for all of your tweeting and instagramming and Pinterest needs is #OneSixEleven. 

BEHAVIOR

Behave yourself. Have a great time.

This is going to be a really fun time, and Mike, myself and everyone at Liberty Ballers is so amazed and thrilled that this event can happen at all, and can be as big as it seems like it will be. Remember, when the ping pong balls fall our way, you’re going to need someone to hug.

* the Sixers are in no way involved with this party even though I took that logo and put it on the thing up top. sorry Sixers!
