  1. The Evster’s NBA Playoff Preview

    Apr 18, 2014, 8:24 AM EDT

    CALATHESSSSS

    This is not an NBA Playoff preview. I don’t know why I called it that. I guess I figured no one would click on a link titled “Some Things The Evster Felt Like Talking About This Week on a Blog That Actually Pays Him to Write Stuff.” But then again, it’s not like you think you’re about to get legit…

  2. 3 Stars: Sloppy Flyers completely unravel in third period and drop Game 1 to Rangers

    Apr 18, 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

    Carl Hagelin, Jason Akeson

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the teams’ Eastern Conference first-round series on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden through the perspective of two players and one almost invisible unit. Ugh. That was not fun. Luckily, it was just the first game of the…

  3. Getting to know the enemy: Four under-the-radar Rangers the Flyers have to keep in check

    Leading into Game 1 tonight between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, here’s a look at four under-the-radar Rangers – ok, well, three players and one inanimate object – that the Flyers will have to keep in check in order to ensure success in the series. You won’t see star…

  4. The five best/worst tweets about Donovan McNabb’s mugshot

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    mcnabb.mugshot

    The Maricopa County (Arizona) sheriff’s office released a mugshot of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb on Thursday afternoon but it was initially unclear what alleged crime was committed. Deadspin then tracked down a criminal traffic citation from back in January, and PFT says the two are likely related. It’s still not really clear what…

  5. Whoever’s in own goal not Flyers’ gravest concern

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Lundqvist

    The news that Steve Mason is out for Game 1 of the Philadelphia Flyers’ first-round series versus the New York Rangers hurts. The possibility he could miss even more time with an “upper-body injury” stemming from a controversial collision against the loathsome Pittsburgh Penguins would be a huge blow to say the least. Yet the…

  6. Debating the Sixers’ 2014 Draft Board with Michael Levin (Pt. 1: #1-8)

    Apr 17, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins

    With the Sixers’ season coming to an end, we turn our attention to what we all truly showed up for: The draft. To that end, we invited our old friend Michael Levin of Liberty Ballers to come on and debate the Sixers’ big board for this June, with our ordered picks for the 20 names…

  7. Wayne Simmonds on Hartsy and Voracek playoff beard dye jobs: ‘Gingers should stick to being gingers’

    Hartnell.beard

    “I couldn’t let [Voracek] do it alone. After dinner last night I went to the drug store and got the Just for Men.” That was Scott Hartnell’s explanation for the dark dye job on his playoff beard this morning. If you missed it, Jake Voracek showed up at practice yesterday with a dyed beard of…

  8. Brett Brown is absolutely nervous like the rest of us about the NBA Draft Lottery

    Apr 17, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown tells it like it is. That’s one of the things most Philadelphians like about him. When the guys in suits on Draft Lottery Night reveal the teams hidden in those cards determined by some ping pong balls bouncing around, Brown is absolutely going to be nervous. “That night when you find out where…

  9. Today’s Phillies game probably won’t be very well attended based on these photos

    Apr 17, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    scenes from Wednesday night

      It’s currently in the mid 40′s here in Philadelphia. It could get as balmy as 50 or 51 by first pitch around 1:05 pm this afternoon. But how many people really want to go sit in the cold to watch a team that couldn’t put up a single run on the Braves last night…

  10. It doesn’t matter what words I put here because Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) says you can’t read anyway

    Apr 17, 2014, 9:21 AM EDT

    Olbermann

    Again, I’m not sure why I’ve continued typing in this space when Keith Olbermann says Philadelphia Flyers fans are illiterate. A man a plan a canal panama. Have you seen this column written by a dog? It’s pretty good. More insightful than anything on Olbermann’s show. But Flyers fans can’t read it. Blah blah blah…

  11. Cliff Lee struck out 13 Braves but Julio Teheran was filthier

    Apr 17, 2014, 8:04 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee, Evan Gattis

    You probably don’t want to watch the above “highlight” video from last night’s 1-0 loss to the Braves. It’s basically Julio Teheran manhandling the Phillies. Put it this way, when a Ryan Howard infield single is one of the highlights of the Phils’ night at the plate, it was not a pretty night. Cliff Lee…

  12. Union have real chance to make it hurt for rival Red Bulls tonight

    Apr 16, 2014, 3:35 PM EDT

    The Union's Leo Fernandes, left, and Maurice Edu,  right, congratulate teammate Andrew Wenger (9) who scored during the second half against Real Salt Lake at PPL Park last Saturday.

    First thing’s first: Because of the Sixers and Phillies, the Philadelphia Union game tonight against the rival New York Red Bulls is on something called WACP TV-4 (7:30 p.m).  It sounds like a channel you probably don’t get, but you definitely do:* *UPDATE: Apparently the game is also on The Comcast Network, which I was…
