Roy Halladay gets his first shot to shake off his scary spring when he and the Phillies face Paul Malholm and the Braves at 7:10 p.m. (MyPHL17). In a perfect world, he breaks eight or nine faces and is back in time to hit up the zoo with the penguin in the morning.

The Sixers on Monday made official their decision to call up Justin Holiday from the D-League and waived Jeremy Pargo. As such, here’s a video from March 7 of Holiday straight messing up the Reno Bighorns’ entire night.

This now marks the third season that the Mets have lost a starting pitcher for the entire season — Santana (2011), Mike Pelfrey (2012), Santana (2013) — before they could even make it out of the month of April.

In a lot of ways, La Salle fans won out just by seeing their team get as far as it did for the first time in nearly six decades. A memorable Big 5 run has reached its end.

Less than two weeks ago, we were sitting around watching conference championship games rooting for other teams to lose so that La Salle might make it to the First Four. Tip off between the 13th-seeded La Salle Explorers and Wichita State Shockers for the opportunity to advance to the Elite Eight is scheduled for 10:17 this evening and can be seen on TBS.

Chances are that you know very little about Wichita State and not the basketball team, the actual university. Consequently, we’ve prepared a fact sheet based mostly off what we found on Wikipedia, the universities’ websites, Forbes, and the National Center for Education Statistics.

John Cena needs to beat The Rock at WrestleMania to avoid becoming the Donovan McNabb of pro wrestling. Yup.

Coulda, shoulda, woulda. Didn’t.

If you’re comparing styles, you probably won’t finder a stranger matchup in the 2013 NCAA Tournament than Khalif Wyatt vs. Victor Oladipo.
Mar 23, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT
He exhibits the on-court demeanor of a borderline sociopath, shoots with no regard for efficiency, openly shit talks opposing players and coaches, and looks like Sid from Toy Story. He’s Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson and he’s playing the La Salle Explorers on Sunday.

La Salle bested Boise State, 80-71, in Dayton on Wednesday night to win the program’s first NCAA Tournament game in 23 years — on the university’s 150th anniversary no less.

Want a quick summation of everything wrong with the Flyers? Boom.
Mar 20, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT
They come from the two best mid-major conferences in the country. They received bids over schools from BCS conferences with (arguably) better resumes (Tennessee, Virginia). They have little-to-no recent NCAA tournament history. They both play four guards (sometimes even five) guards. There’s a lot of similarities between La Salle and Boise State ahead of their first-round/play-in game at 9:10 p.m. this evening in Dayton, Ohio.

You can now add Donovan McNabb to your evening drive — meaning incidents of road rage are about to go on the rise across the Delaware Valley. So will you listen? [poll inside]

Do Temple and La Salle still need one more win each? How many spots are actually up for grabs from the A-10 in the field of 68? How could you have made a cool $16,000 Wednesday afternoon? This and more is our Day 2, A-10 tournament primer.

Young guys. Talented or potentially talented. Ruled extraneous with the addition of two high-profile, veteran acquisitions at their positions. Acquisitions that have not gone to plan. The young guys, by the way, are flourishing. By now, we’re all familiar with the tale of Nik Vucevic, whom the Sixers selected 16th overall out of USC in…

He wants out of Orlando, he doesn’t want out of Orlando. He wants Stan Van Gundy fired, he doesn’t want Stan Van Gundy fired. He wants to dictate the terms of his free agency, he isn’t a free agent. He finally gets his wish to go to one of his two preferred markets, he realizes…

“Like Daniel Day-Lewis in Last of the Mohicans, HE WILL FIND US.” — Jon Stewart Following their 3-0 loss to Boston on Saturday, the Flyers recalled Michael Leighton and reassigned Brian Boucher to the far reaches of northern New York. Lord Voldemort started the season as the Flyers’ backup goaltender but was placed on injured…

On last night’s NBC pregame show, Mike Milbury referred to Ilya Bryzgalov as the Flyers’ “rock.” He did so after being asked a leading question about how well the goaltender had played through 23 games. Bryzgalov’s most recent outing to date had been a 2-1 win over the Senators during which he made 34 saves.…

The conspiracy theory coming out of Los Angeles — the one I just made up while sitting here in Philly — is that the Kings rented 20,000 hats as a fake show of good will and then needed a way to get them back. That is to say: Jeff Carter scored a natural hat trick…

In keeping with the NBA’s designs on growing the game internationally and potentially locating a league franchise overseas, your Philadelphia 76ers will be one of eight teams traveling abroad next October and will play two preseason games in Europe.
