Philadelphia legend Bernard Hopkins became the oldest boxer to win a major world title when he outpointed the (much) younger Jean Pascal to win a unanimous decision in Pascal’s home town of Montreal on Saturday night. If you’re a fan of boxing and haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend doing so. The 46-year old Hopkins had one of, if not thee most, impressive fight of his career and even brought back the executioner’s mask for some pre-fight intimidation and mocked Pascal by doing push-ups in the middle of the ring after the 7th round had ended. (Bryan Armen Graham of SI.com had a tremendous piece on the fight — read that)

Anyhoo, being that this is a baseball blog, I felt compelled to share this exchange between Bernard and Jimmy Rollins via twitter. Apparently Bernard gives Rollins “much respect” and holds him in a higher regard than other athletes who may have played in Philadelphia at one point.

Unless you’re a famous rapper or an NBA player or Justin Bieber, chances are you’ve never heard of Louis Stewart or his collection of bags. (It’s pronounced Lou-iss, like Saint ____, and not Lou-ee, like ____ Vuitton) Lucky for me, most of the people who read this blog are either famous rappers or NBA players so I won’t bother going into detail about it, but if you really wanna know, just Google “Louis Stewart bags” or check his YouTube channel and you’ll find everyone from Dr. Dre to ‘Melo to Rihanna to Wale showing off their kitschy, gator print personalized bags. Oh, and guess who else has a set of LS bags? Jimmy Rollins!

Watch as he flaunts his “Dubai set” with the personalized JRO 11 inscription on the inside:

From Todd Zolecki:

Jimmy Rollins, on slapping home plate with his left hand as he slid past Yorvit Torrealba to score the winning run in the 12th inning in a 3-2 victory over the Padres at Petco Park: “It was quick. It was my Karate Kid fly catcher.”

Said Charlie of the slide: “Youuuuu beginna luck.”

via @magelb, Durbin on Rollins’ slide:

“That was fantastic. Like a scene from The Matrix.”
