  1. Marcus Vick: Nick Foles supporters are ‘silly peasants’ and Eagles fans are ‘dumb motherf***ers’

    Paging all you silly peasants and dumb mother– nevermind. Marcus Vick took to Twitter Sunday to rub in an especially insufferable first half of Eagles football with his typically insufferable tweets. And now, Marcus’ thoughts, as Nick Foles was going 11 for 29 for 80 yards while getting sacked three times. Bear in mind, this…

  2. Time Lapse and Photos: Welcome to Penn State hockey’s Pegula Ice Arena

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    Army Penn State Hockey

    This post can be alternately titled — “More people care about college hockey than preseason professional basketball.” We’re a little late with this, but 6,370 fans showed up to watch the Penn State hockey team open its new home — Pegula Ice Arena — with a 4-1 win over Army last Friday night. (Second Army…

  3. When’s the last time the home team won a football game at Lincoln Financial Field?

    Over the last two seasons, there hasn’t been a whole lot of winning football in this city. Dating back to the start of last year, the two teams that call the Linc home — the Philadelphia Eagles and the Temple Owls — are a combined 11-25. “I don’t know if Lincoln Financial Field is cursed,…

  4. Hilarious: Watch Nick Young crash his toboggan while riding the Great Wall of China

    Oct 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    NICK-YOUNG-TOBOGGAN

    There is a Swag-sized hole in our hearts now that Nick Young is no longer a member of the 76ers. Young was replaced in the offseason by cheaper — presumably better — talent, but no combination of promising rookie pieces can be as horrifyingly entertaining as Swaggy jacking 30-footers. Now a member of his hometown…

  6. Video: Craig Berube tells Inquirer columnist Mike Sielski to ‘get lost’

    Screen shot 2013-10-08 at 11.22.07 PM

    You may not be familiar with Inquirer columnist Mike Sielski by name, but you likely remember him from Craig Berube’s introductory press conference on Monday. Sielski was the one who asked Ed Snider about the perception created by hiring someone like Berube, who was “steeped” in a Flyers culture “that hasn’t won a Cup in…

  7. Peter Laviolette allegedly lost the locker room, then went the way of Ken Hitchcock

    Oct 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    USATSI_7225310_138566172_lowres

    Too much jam? Boy if this isn’t beginning to sound like Ken Hitchcock all over again. Hitch, you may remember, was fired just eight games into the 2006-07 season, after he had reportedly lost his locker room, particularly young building blocks like Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Bob Clarke also resigned/was removed that day as…

  8. Want more Ed Snider? After press conference, he kept talking about this ‘disaster’

    Oct 7, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 1.51.35 PM

    Ed Snider caught plenty of attention with his combative attitude at Monday morning’s press conference and his insistence that the Flyers “don’t need a fresh perspective.“ But when the press conference formally ended, and when the media scrums began, that’s went the real fun started. We’ll get out of the way and let the quotes speak…

  9. Flyers Chairman Ed Snider: ‘We don’t need a fresh perspective’

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Ed Snider

    “We don’t need a fresh perspective” — Ed Snider And that line — more than any other from Monday morning’s press conference, maybe more than any line at any time — sums up the last 38 years of Philadelphia Flyers hockey. Craig Berube was officially introduced as the 18th coach in Flyers history on Monday,…

  10. Laviolette Fired: Flyers to introduce Craig Berube at 11 a.m. — Watch here

    It took all of three games. Peter Laviolette is out as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. Craig Berube will be introduced as your new head coach in a press conference at 11 a.m. You can watch that press conference right here in the video window below: As you’ve all no doubt heard by now,…

    Ilya Bryzgalov hasn’t made it all the way to the Tyson Zone, but there’s very little you wouldn’t believe about his future career prospects if you were only sold a good story. Working on confirming or debunking, but, word in Philly is Bryzgalov is about to sign an East Coast Hockey League contract in Las…

  15. Chip Kelly: Harold Carmichael’s 1984 retirement is killing the 2013 Eagles

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    Great caption: Eagles' Harold Carmichael (17) crashes to the frozen artificial turf after catching a touchdown pass late in second quarter of NFC playoff game against the Vikings Saturday, Jan. 3, 1981 at Philadelphia. Minnesota's Willie Teal, left, could not stop the score. (AP Photo/Ingraham)

    In 14 NFL seasons, 13 of which he spent with the Philadelphia Eagles, Harold Carmichael caught 590 passes for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns. After spending the final year of his career with Dallas in 1984, Carmichael retired from the game. And that decision is just killing the Eagles’ offense right now. Geoff Mosher has a…

    In retrospect — and maybe even at the time — sending Jonathan Singleton and Jarred Cosart to the Astros for Hunter Pence, not a great idea. Still, it’s amazing how it easy it is for athletes to make fans like them. Show even the slightest bit of a sense of humor, especially by way of…

    The Sixers on Monday made former Minnesota Golden Gopher Rodney Williams the latest to sign a partially-guaranteed deal with the franchise, joining him with Khalif Wyatt, Darius Morris, and Vander Blue. Williams, you may remember, played for the Sixers’ summer league team in Orlando after going undrafted. In his final year at Minnesota, the 6-foot-7…

    What the hell is going on here? The Huffington Post has a story about a Mike Vick appearance at a Buffalo Wild Wings that’s been cancelled, although it turns out he was never really scheduled for such an appearance, protests were promised, death threats are being mailed, and, then in a separate but semi-connected chain…

    Ahhh, Bill O’Brien. You get all excited and have to catch yourself before you say f—. This is never not enjoyable. Following Penn State’s 34-0 drubbing of Kent State on a rainy Saturday at Beaver Stadium, O’Brien had a little fun with the reporters, calling them out for ignoring his defense’s second consecutive shutout over…

    Rough couple days for Chip Kelly, whose team has lost its last two in a row, whose two-point conversion tried last night failed, and whose cell phone went off in the middle of his press conference Friday.
