Casual Friday Sixers Links: A Storm Of Winter Blowouts

Cannot figure skate - Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

We'll bring the links, you bring the discussion. Casual Friday open thread discussion fun for everyone! In this week's edition of Casual Friday we have Hot Sports Takes, way too many Olympics references, and you angrily shoveling snow for the second day in a row and the 15th time this winter.

Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links!

Housekeeping:

• After all the worry over beating the Celtics a couple weeks ago, the Sixers have not won a game since and lost several in hilarious fashion. I love this team.

• Missing you, green grass. The grass is supposed to be green, isn't it?

• Want to share some Sixers thoughts with the LB community? Write a FanPost. Do a good job on it and we may even promote it to the front page. I'll even link to it in the weekly links post too. You'll be famous!

• Keep the conversation going with your friends irl, go like the LB Facebook page!
