  1. Important Things: The mini William Penn statue will jump from one Comcast tower to the other

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    William.Penn.statue

    Remember back when the existing Comcast tower was going up back in 2007 or so and we all made a big deal about the little William Penn statue that some construction workers placed at the very top of it in an attempt to break the nonexistent “Curse of Billy Penn”? The “curse” that supposedly inflicted…

  2. Union select goalie with No. 1 pick, who says Philly is ‘the place for cheesesteaks or something’

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:15 PM EDT

    When you trade up and take the consensus best player in the draft, it’s hard not to call it a successful day. Whether that player turns into a top notch pro talent is another story. Hi, Mr. Bennett! The Philadelphia Union traded up in today’s MLS SuperDraft to select goalkeeper from the University of Connecticut…

  3. Don’t forget: Flyers game watch party and The700Level meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar one week from today

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT

    Smiths01

    We’re exactly one week away from our Flyers game watch party at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar which will go down next Thursday, January 23rd when the Flyers take on the Blue Jackets on the road. We’ve got a pretty great list of you who’ve already RSVPd to come out and enjoy a few cold ones…

  4. Spotted: A giant TV showing Eagles football in new giant Comcast skyscraper

    Jan 16, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Eagles.TV

    It’s not everyday that news hits of the tallest building ever in your city is going to be built. That’s what happened yesterday when Comcast announced plans for the tallest building in the United States outside of New York in Chicago, which they’re calling the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center. Other than drastically altering the…

  5. Thad on his game winning three: ‘thought I was going to make it before I even got the ball’

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Thaddeus Young , Kemba Walker

    Beating the Charlotte Bobcats on your home court may not be the most exciting thing in the world but Thad Young hitting a three pointer in the final seconds to help secure the win certainly provided some great drama. Thad got a great look and took the shot with confidence and nailed it. His quotes…

  6. Cartoon: Charlie Manuel and Chris Wheeler fight over who gets the best role in Phillies organization

    Charlie Manuel has some competition for his new job with the #Phillies: pic.twitter.com/J0LSYCUlEo — Rob Tornoe (@RobTornoe) January 15, 2014 Both Charlie Manuel and Chris Wheeler will be in new roles with the Phillie for the 2014 season. In what capacity the pair will serve the organization is a bit unclear, but Philadelphia Inquirer cartoonist…

  7. Reports: Charlie Manuel to rejoin Phillies as senior adviser to Ruben

    Jan 15, 2014, 1:54 PM EDT

    Charlie Manuel, Ruben Amaro, Jr.

    But will he bring his lunch to Citizens Bank Park come April in a Wawa bag? According to reports by 97.5 the Fanatic’s Brian Startare and CSNPhilly’s Jim Salisbury, Charlie Manuel has agreed to return to the Phillies organization in a senior adviser role to the General Manager. When Manuel was let go back in…

  8. Evan Mathis celebrates Pro Bowl selection with Tonya Harding quip

    Someone tell Tonya Harding I don’t need her help getting into the Pro Bowl anymore. — Evan Mathis (@EvanMathis69) January 14, 2014 Both Evan Mathis and Nick Foles were officially added to the Pro Bowl game on Tuesday afternoon. It will be the first appearance in the game for both players. Mathis took the honor…

  9. Dope Timelapse: Kate Smith sings under South Philly skies

    Jan 14, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    Kate.Smith

    Our video man Tom at CSN is always playing with his camera equipment toys down at the South Philadelphia sports complex and got a great time lapse of the famous Kate Smith statue last night which now sits outside of Xfinity Live. The Wells Fargo Center and Lincoln Financial Field in the background under some…

  10. Video: Drexel student hits half court shot to win year supply of hoagies

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

    JimmyJOhns.Drexel

    This Drexel student hit a half court shot over the weekend which won him a year supply of free hoagies from Jimmy John’s. That’s probably worth its weight in gold to a college kid. I can’t speak for Jimmy John’s personally as I don’t believe I’ve ever had a meal there. Where does it fall…

  11. The Phillies have interest in Roy Halladay

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:21 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Not as a pitcher obviously. He retired, remember. But the Phillies do apparently have interest in Roy Halladay as an instructor of some sort. Somewhat hidden in a note by Jim Salisbury about whether or not Charlie Manuel will return to the Philadelphia Phillies in a coaching role this coming season is a quick bit…

  12. The Sixers unveiled a mascot race over the weekend featuring Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross, and a cracked bell

    Jan 13, 2014, 6:46 PM EDT

    Ben.Franklin.LibertyBell.Betsy.Ross

    The sports world is in an uproar over the Chicago Cubs unveiling a mascot on Monday known as Clark the Cub. But they weren’t the only major sports franchise to introduce a ridiculous mascot of sorts this week. The Philadelphia 76ers followed in the great tradition of racing things such as encased meats in tube…

  13. The Phillie Phanatic will spend all spring in Clearwater for first time ever

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:17 PM EDT

    Phanatic.Dom.Brown

    Don’t get confused. That was not a pregnancy announcement by Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Dom Brown and the Phillie Phanatic that was posted to Instagram this afternoon. It was a photo from Mexico — we assume on the team’s cruise vacation that fans can go on if they fork over some dough — illustrating that the…

  14. Mike Vick’s alleged former stripper-slash-’secret girlfriend’ tells hilarious tales of orgies, affirmed straightness

    Jan 13, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    The thing about the year 2014 is that computers are relatively cheap and anyone can sit down and hunt and peck their way to tell any story they want. Bloggers exist, after all, and you’re reading this. So it’s always a bit entertaining when “secret girlfriends” try to write tell-all books. The latest target of…

  15. Nick Foles makes the Pro Bowl (which reminds you of things about the Pro Bowl)

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:58 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Lions Eagles Football

    If you’re anything like me, you might flip on the Pro Bowl for a few minutes on whatever day/night it’s televised if you’re not already in the middle of a Sopranos or Breaking Bad binge-watching session, but mostly because you’re curious what the weather is like in Hawaii or how awful of a shirt Andy…

  16. There was a special guest in the front row at the Sixers game last night

    Jan 11, 2014, 9:04 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson, Will Bynum

    You may remember this guy. The Sixers couldn’t get their act together on Friday night, falling to the Pistons by the final of 114-104, but fans in attendance got the treat of seeing a familiar face sitting courtside for much of the game. Wonder which team A.I. was pulling for? He did play for the…

  17. Charles Barkley sucks at beer pong but that’s okay

    Jan 10, 2014, 3:21 PM EDT

    Beerpong.Barkley

    We’re not really sure why Charles Barkley was on HLN and it’s still unclear exactly why he was playing beer pong on the air but it’s Friday and you might as well pour yourself a glass of whiskey and watch the above clip because why not. I’d guess it has something to do with Chuck…

  18. Don’t Forget: Come to Smith’s on January 23rd for The700Level meet up and Flyers watch party

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:59 AM EDT

    Smiths01

    We’re less than two weeks away from our big bash at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse for The700Level meetup and Flyers game watch party. Most of the Level crew will be in attendance, so be sure to come on out on January 23rd to enjoy a few cold beers and a chance to tell…

  19. Photo Gallery: Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live flipped through South Philly

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    055A4690_600

    Annapolis Maryland native Travis Pastrana brought his merry band of bikers and other thrill-seekers to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia last night for the Nitro Circus. The action sports event had toured Australia, New Zealand, and much of Europe previously but this tour is the first time they’ve hit North America. It’s being dubbed…

  20. Sixers CEO says team ‘won’t leave Philadelphia, ever’

    Jan 9, 2014, 4:39 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    There you have it. Ever. After word broke yesterday of a major joint announcement between the Josh Harris owned Sixers and New Jersey Devils, every conspiracy theorist on Twitter wondered if the Sixers might be relocating. That was never going to happen. But new Sixers and Devils CEO Scott O’Neil set all of that straight…

  21. Let’s listen to Shady McCoy talk about the new Super Bowl uniforms he won’t be wearing

    Jan 9, 2014, 2:15 PM EDT

    SP14_AT_SB_Vapor_Shield_HERO_001_26472

    This is kind of a bummer. Nike unveiled some new uniforms and other gear for the players to wear up in New Jersey for the Super Bowl in February. It actually appears to be some pretty sweet gear. But for some reason they had to bring on Shady McCoy for this midday talk show segment…

  22. Keith Olbermann is pissed at the Phillies over Wheels and Sarge move

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:23 PM EDT

    Olbermann

    If you caught Keith Olbermann’s show on ESPN2 on Wednesday night then you saw him select the Philadelphia Phillies as the “winner” of his segment known as the “World’s Worst in Sports.” It’s kind of his new play on his old MSNBC bit “Worst Person in the World” where he’d single out some nitwit. He…

  23. Bombshell: Chris Wheeler and Sarge Matthews out of Phillies broadcast

    Jan 8, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    Phanatic.toy

    It’ll never be Cadillac Time again. In a rather shocking development, longtime Phillies broadcaster Chris Wheeler is out from the television broadcasts after decades in the booth. Sarge Matthews’ time in the booth has also come to an end as well. That’s just goofy. The AP first reported the news. Both will move to different…

  24. Chip Kelly’s players think he’s a great leader

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chip.Kelly.boykins

    Everybody has an opinion on Chip Kelly. It’s safe to say he won over fans in a big way in his first year as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. By all accounts, the future is bright for those who bleed green. But what did his players have to say about him after one year…

  25. Old video of Jimmy Rollins with an afro dissing hockey

    Jan 8, 2014, 11:35 AM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins

    Not entirely sure how I stumbled upon this undated-but-probably-old video this morning, but it’s pretty awesome for two reasons. First, Jimmy Rollins is sporting the afro he used to rock back in his early days with the Phillies. And two, J-Roll is asked about what he loves about Philadelphia and gives an answer that would…
