LeSean McCoy Explains 20 Cent Tip
The Eagles running back has been tip shamed all over the internet. So much so that Charlie Sheen pledged $1000 to the waiter who received a 20-cent pittance from McCoy who has explained the reason for the tip. Sorta:

"A 20-cent tip is kind of a statement. You can't disrespect somebody and expect them to tip you. I don't care who the person is. That's why I left my card so they could see my name."

McCoy didn't explain how he was disrespected but did add that he's glad Charlie Sheen is finally "doing something positive".

Curious: what's your tipping philosophy? I usually double the amount and leave 20%.

Oh No He Didn't

Connect With ARod

From the Hutto Hippos to the New Braunfels Unicorns, I love a good nickname. How about the Conway Wampus Cats, Mars Area Fighting Planets or Webster University Gorloks? Here are more of the strangest mascot nicknames around.

I feel terrible for anyone who plays for Yuma. They're Criminals. Really.
