    Apr 23, 2014, 8:10 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles reported to the NovaCare Complex on Monday for voluntary workouts as part of Phase One of the offseason program. In case you needed more evidence though that training camp and football season are right around the corner, the NFL has released the 2014 regular season schedule. The Birds will open their season…

    NLCS Phillies Dodgers Baseball

    Cole Hamels will take the ball tonight for your Philadelphia Phillies for the first time this season as Ryne Sandberg’s club looks to take the series from the Dodgers while playing within a Matt Stairs-moonshot-distance of the famous “Hollywood” sign up in the hills. There a couple of mixed trends for Hamels season debut against…

  3. Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers

    Apr 23, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT


    It’s an unusual team that leaves you with such a feeling of confidence and optimism after losing 77% of their games in the regular season, but such was the story of the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers were very bad indeed, but they were bad with a purpose, and frankly, they could (and probably should)…

  4. Watch Carl Crawford’s botched catch attempt that led to Phillies victory in extras

    Apr 23, 2014, 12:22 PM EDT


    You can listen to the Phillies broadcast of the awful catch attempt made by Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford here, or see it above while watching L.A. manager Don Mattingly wax poetic about his team’s poor defense above. Credit Chooch for hustling his ass off to second base on the error. Phillies beat writer Jim Salisbury…

  5. At least Evan Turner didn’t punch any teammates in Philadelphia

    Apr 23, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

    Evan Turner

    Things haven’t been all sunshine, rainbows, and wins for the Indiana Pacers since they dealt for Evan Turner in the eleventh hour of the NBA trade deadline. We always knew Evan to be a little bit different while he played in Philadelphia, but there were never reports like the one Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski wrote about…

  6. Dan Carcillo gives Flyers fans the metaphorical finger in 4-1 Rangers win

    Apr 22, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT


    One upset Flyers fan gave Dan Carcillo the middle finger and Carbombs didn’t have to say a word. That’s the kind of night it was in South Philadelphia on Tuesday as the Flyers fell behind early and never really found a way to battle back. The Rangers looked like they’d been studying up on Dikembe…

  7. Moving Lecavalier up to second line could pay dividends for Flyers; Mason to backup Emery tonight

    Apr 22, 2014, 5:24 PM EDT

    Andrew MacDonald, Jason Akeson, Brayden Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier

    Despite heading home tonight for Game 3 and tied 1-1 in their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers’ offense could use a boost. Welcome back to the second line, Vinny Lecavalier. In an effort to create some more offensive punch, Flyers head coach Craig Berube is moving Lecavalier from the…

  8. Ryan Howard suddenly off to one of best starts of his career at the plate

    Apr 22, 2014, 3:02 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard

    Even back when he was bashing upwards of 40 home runs per season, Ryan Howard was a notoriously slow starter. Now all of a sudden, when everybody is least expecting it, the Philadelphia Phillies three-time All-Star first baseman might be in the midst of the best month of April in his 11-year big-league career. With…

  9. The time Craig Berube sucker punched Jeremy Roenick: Watch the punch that started it a decade earlier

    Apr 22, 2014, 2:08 PM EDT


    Jeremy Roenick told a pretty wild tale on 94 WIP yesterday about how calculated hockey feuds can be. And just how patient a hockey goon can be in exacting his revenge. The story goes back more than a decade when Roenick was playing for the Flyers and the Chief was hired as a player-coach of…

  10. Playoff hockey returns to the Wells Fargo Center tonight which means bright orange t-shirts too

    Apr 22, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT


    It’s not exactly Peter Laviolette’s “It’s time for some JAM!” shirt or making light of the fact that neither Philadelphia fans nor Sidney Crosby like each other, but the Flyers released the design of their first playoff t-shirt today. It isn’t anything really that will get you fired up for tonight’s game, but Ray Emery…

  11. Video: After hard-hitting Stephen A. Smith interview, DeSean Jackson appears on Arsenio Hall show

    Apr 22, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT


    DeSean Jackson had a busy Monday. The guy got a new boat. Did something with a snake. And even appeared on the Arsenio Hall Show. You can watch part of the segment above and the rest of it below. Arsenio throws strange objects at Djacc to see if he can catch them. One object he…

  12. Watch Cliff Lee, who is awesome, high five a couple kids during his eight shutout innings

    Apr 22, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT


    This is one of the times where I’d like to give myself a little pat on the back for reason No. 1  of my preseason “Reasons to get excited for the 2014 Phillies” post: “At least we get to watch Cliff Lee every fifth day.“ I know, I really went out on a limb there.…
