Football Meets Fashion at Fashion Touchdown 2018

It’s that time of the year…Fashion Touchdown is here! We are always excited to attend this prestigious fundraiser hosted by Marrone Law Firm in Philadelphia.  We remember this event when it was held at Vie on Broad Street! Now in its fourth year, Fashion Touchdown 2018 will be held at the Filmore Philadelphia on Monday, November 5, 2018.

Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will rip the runway for a good cause and to support Big Fashion Touchdown FlyerBrothers Big Sister.  The lineup includes Rodney McLeod, Malcolm Jenkins, Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce, Brandon Graham, Chris Maragos, Jordan Hicks, Jalen Mills, and former Eagles’ Brent Celek and Todd Herremans.

Started in 2014, Fashion Touchdown has become one of Philadelphia’s biggest philanthropic events, featuring players from the Philadelphia Eagles and their wives modeling collections from Nicole Miller. In a night of fashion and football, the Eagles walk the runway in the latest looks, followed by a live auction to win their jerseys and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Past winners have enjoyed a private tour of Nicole Miller’s New York studio and dinner with Philadelphia Eagles player Brent Celek.

Last year’s sold-out event raised $360,000, a record-breaking amount due in part to the generosity of both attendees and sponsors. In addition to Marrone Law Firm, LLC, this year’s main sponsors include Live Nation, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and AmerisourceBergen. Returning runway fashion show partners include internationally-acclaimed designer, Nicole Miller, and ToBox Shoes. New this year will be Damari Savile, a men’s fashion line from Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins.

The event has a special meaning for Joseph M. Marrone, Esquire, founding partner of Marrone Law Firm, LLC. Marrone is a member of the Governing Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region and a former Big Brother himself. “Big Brothers Big Sisters has played such a significant role in my life here in Philadelphia that it’s a privilege to be a part of an event that benefits their lifesaving work,” said Marrone. “The guidance and mentorship opportunities that this outstanding organization has offered our community is enormous. I look forward to celebrating their achievements while raising money for their ongoing endeavors.

“Furthermore, I’d like to acknowledge the Philadelphia Eagles and our dedicated sponsors, many of whom call Philly home, for lending their name and resources to this meaningful fundraiser. We couldn’t be this successful year after year without them.”
The women’s fashion show will feature Miller’s Fall 2018 clothing line, while the men’s show will include a bespoke suit line from Damari Savile and men’s shoes by ToBox. Once again, Philadelphia’s own Jason Matthew Salon will donate all hair and makeup services for the female models.

Thursday Night Football 

The Myth…The Man…The Mullen: A Verified Victory in the Bay

By the time Thursday Night Football on Fox had concluded, Twitter had already verified Nick Mullen’s account.  That and the one fan – who was probably Nick’s auntie – who wore his jersey were two of the things that truly made Mullen the Man tonight.  Of course, his impeccable nearly perfect play against the Raiders contributed to the verification.

In the end, the battle in the bay ended with the Raiders defense visibly absent from Levi’s Stadium, and the 49ers offense ready to play.  34-3 would be the final score on the W. Coast, and an emotional Nick would speak with reporters following the game about his plans post-play.  To talk to his friends back home in Alabama.

Nothing like a humble winner.

Humbled was not the emotion on the silver and black sideline.  NO.  That was sheer embarrassment. Head coach, Jon Gruden could be seen during on time-out mouthing to his defensive line coach “WTF” *insert SMG emoji*.

Carr hasn’t lived up to his draft hype since his 2009 draft, and the Niners came in to Ram the Raiders (see what I did there), just a week after another Los Angeles came in and did the same.

Next Thursday, the Carolina Panthers come to Pennsylvania to take on the Steelers for Thursday Night Football on Fox.

All the Pre-Season Feels

Written by: Tashyra Ayers, F3 Creator & F3TV Correspondent | IG & Twitter: @TashyrasVoice

Pre-season is always full of anticipating fans, open practices, speculations and predictions from sports commentators on who will go all the way to claim the Lombardi Trophy. We watch for injured players to return, the latest draft picks to take their respective places – some starts others added to the depth charts of the acquiring team.

But for F3 and the City of Philadelphia, the pre-season comes with another level of excitement, but also a level of confidence and our heads held high as we embrace the title of reining SB champs following our defeat of 5-time SB champs, New England Patriots.

So, it’s no surprise that F3 was elated and even that much more excited to have access and the opportunity to engage with the players during open practices, and not just from the stands, but first hand with the players.  We’re coming off closely following your favorite Eagles players during off-season, one in particularly who wrote a book during his time away – Nick Foles, new author of “I Believe”.

F3TV correspondent, Laneisha David caught up with Nick in Cherry Hill, NJ just a month shy of the first practice for the reining champ and SB MVP.  He was finishing the last leg of his book tour which speaks to his belief in Christ as the head of his life, and the main factor, at least what he believes, to be the primary ingredient and factor to the now Super Bowl Champs, Philadelphia Eagles.

On the sidelines of the Open practice we see the comoradore in the team and understand how that played such an important role in the win the MVP QB that has been at the hel, of NE Patriots for a number of years.

Laneisha David was on-site as the players greeted screaming fans who were happy to see their reigning champs take home field for the first time since winning their championship game against the Minnesota Vikings. It was time to see them in action and week one would be a replay of the NFC East championship game against the Atlanta Falcons.

NFL Kickoff 2018: ATLANTA FALCONS VS. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Written by: LaSharon Allen, Atlanta Falcons Contributor | Instagram: @QueenofSports

The 2018 NFL Season kicked off with the Atlanta Falcons taking on the Philadelphia Eagles.  The Eagles are the defending Superbowl Champs and they were not about to let anyone come into their house, Lincoln Financial Field and spoil the celebration.

The First quarter was one for the record books, the game had a 45 minute weather delay and that may have caused both teams to come out and play slow. I have to give it to both defenses they played real well. This was a sloppy, mistake-filled gamed that did have 26 penalties total by both teams. Phillies defense really did feed off the crowd’s energy and held the Falcons to a goal-line stand when Devonta Freeman was stopped short of the goal. The eagles stopped the Falcons three times at the 1 yard line. It seems like Atlanta has left off from last season where they had trouble finding the end zone.  This is something that Head Coach Dan Quinn said he would definitely take a look at and work on. Could the OC be in the hot seat already?

After Ajayi’s 11-yard TD run and 2-point conversion gave the Eagles a lead with 2:25 left, Ryan led the Falcons down the field. He completed a 36-yard pass to Jones and connected with him again for 18 yards on third-and-17. The Falcons had a first down at the 10 but Ryan threw four straight incomplete passes. But a penalty on Jordan Hicks gave them one more chance and the Eagles held again. This is where the Eagles defense begin to come back alive.

Hold on the Falcons were not about to back down. So it seemed, Matt Ryan had a first down at the 10 but he threw four straight incomplete passes. There was a penalty on the Eagles Jordan Hicks and that gave the Atlanta Falcons one more chance but the Philly defense held again. Eagle’s coach Doug Pederson resorted to the “Philly Special” play that helped the Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41-33 in the Super Bowl. This time, Foles caught a 15-yard pass from Nelson Agholor to extend a drive that ended with Ajayi scoring a go-ahead 1-yard TD run in the third quarter. Foles hit Zach Ertz for 18 yards on third-and-6 and Ajayi ran in a few plays later to put Philadelphia up 10-6.

There was still hope for the Falcons when Deion Jones intercepted the Super Bowl MVP a pass that bounced out of Dallas Goedert’s hands and Jones returned it 20 yards to the Philly 27, This set up a 9-yard run by Falcons running back Telvin Coleman that gave the Falcons a 12-10 lead after a missed extra point by Matt Bryant, that hit the right post.  

Eagles survived the Falcons beating them 12-18! Falcons will host the Carolina Panthers 9/16/18 their division rival.

To some fans this looked more like an August Preseason game rather than the season one opener. I have to say that I look forward to seeing what both teams have to offer this year!  Welcome back to Football!
