You've Got Sixers Email, Vol. 9: Michael Levin Calls the Viagra Hotline

That man is not your maker. - USA TODAY Sports

Levin's Hinkie fanboyism reaches new heights, we discuss the GM's Twitter presence and weigh in on the summer's most provocative music video.

Michael Levin
Kicking this off right. I'm going to Vegas this weekend for non-Sixers Summer League action, but there's a chance Mr. Hinkie will be there at the same time. So I reached out to LB registered user and Sixers PR man, Michael Preston, about trying to set up a time to talk to Sam. He said he'd let me know, then a few days later, I got this response:

"Hey Mike -
Sam said he would keep his eye out for you out in Vegas.
Thanks!
mike"

So he must know what I look like! Or he just assumes I look BLOGGY AS SHIT. Either way, we'll be good friends in no time.
Additionally: "he is aware that you will be out in Vegas."
HE IS AWARE OF MY WHEREABOUTS.

Sean O'Connor
This is going to turn into one of those things where you go looking for Hinkie and he'll end up thinking you're a stalker (which may be accurate) and then hide in a hotel room a la the Knicks when Houston signed Jeremy Lin, only instead of an offer sheet there's an interview request and a love letter signed by all the LB writers.

Michael Baumann
This is going to be like the time I got backstage at that Dolly Parton concert.

Tanner Steidel
"Do you know anything about... my father's where.....abouts"

Reduce your muscle mass 100% and you will look like the bloggiest blogger who ever blogged.

Rich Hoffmann
Even if you don't get to talk to him, that's a tremendous answer you got back.

Michael Levin
Oh I will talk to him if it's the last thing I do. (It may be the last thing I do.)

Roy Burton
Who's next in succession if/when something happens to Levin? And on a related note, does that mean that I'll get promoted to 10th on the depth chart?
I can only imagine Levin laughing like a little girl the second Hinkie speaks to him.
Hinkie: "Hey, Mike, it's nice to meet y--"
Levin: EEEEEEEHEHEEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH

Jake Pavorsky
My buddy Jake Fischer was out in Orlando for summer league, ran into Hinkie and started talking to him. He mentioned his name, and Hinkie said "Yeah, I was reading one of your tweets the other day." Scary.

Brandon Lee
A billion Internet dollars to the person who can find Hinkie's twitter account.

Michael Baumann
Jesus Christ. Sam Hinkie: the Fanservice GM.

Michael Levin
It's not Fan Service until he does it to ME.

Jake Pavorsky
it's literally @samhinkie. Has like 80 followers. Couple reporters follow him. Never tweets of course

Sean O'Connor
He swiped Adam Aron's account when he, ahem, resigned.

Michael Levin
HAHAHAHA Daryl Morey follows him. <333333333333

Sean O'Connor
that's my favorite thing ever

Michael Levin
Rockets East Rockets East Rockets East

Got a gchat from Dave while in the writers room at work. The way the room works is the writers assistant (me) types on the computer while the writers each have their own monitors around a long table. So when I went to my email to grab a script, all the writers saw a "YO" from "WIBR." It inspired a two-minute riff on a radio station named WIBR.

Roy Burton
WIBR used to be a sports talk radio station, ironically enough: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIBR

Dave Rueter
Hahaha, oh man. Hope you didn't get in trouble. I wanted to talk second wild card.

Michael Levin
Been watching the unrated Robin Thicke Blurred Lines video a lot lately.... an awful lot. (Editor's Note: NSFW. Very NSFW. Lots of Boobs.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwT6DZCQi9k Jake, avert your eyes.

Rich Hoffmann
Me too. My favorite part of that video is when it says #THICKE all big on the screen. That's just getting right to the point.

Jake Pavorsky
*shields eyes*

Ben Revere weighs in on Andrew Bynum.

Michael Baumann
Love it. Ben Revere for head coach.
Any final thoughts?

Justin F.
I like...eggs.

Dave Rueter
Take care of yourself. And each other.

Michael Baumann
That's a better way to end it.

Jake Pavorsky
I would've gone with Be Excellent to each other, Dave.
