  1. Photos: It was so warm in December the Eagles cheerleaders still wore shorts

    Dec 23, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    Bears Eagles Football

    December 2013 will forever be known as the month with both the blizzardy conditions Snow Bowl and the game on December 22nd that was so damn warm the Eagles cheerleaders still wore shorts. I guess global warming does have some advantages at times. Philadelphia reached record highs yesterday with the thermometer topping out at 68…

  2. Watch Chip Kelly: ‘We’re from Philadelphia and we fight’

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT


    When you absolutely beat the living daylights out of a team on prime time in front of a national audience, it’s only fitting you show a little swagger afterwards. It started with LeSean McCoy in his postgame chat on the field with NBC’s Michele Tafoya. “I think this week we got fitted for the crown,…

  3. Shady McCoy’s Madden-like spin move

    Dec 22, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles are cruising past the Chicago Bears tonight en route to an NFC East showdown with the Cowboys next Sunday evening. But before we focus on the serious task at hand in Dallas, it’s worth savoring this one. Nobody makes you appreciate the beauty of football more than Shad McCoy. He’s padded his…

  4. Eagles at Cowboys flexed to Sunday night for NFC East crown

    Dec 22, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT


    NBC executives are probably a lot like you. They want to watch Shady McCoy play football as much as possible. It was announced during halftime of the Eagles vs. Bears games tonight on NBC that the Birds’ game next Sunday against the Cowboys will be flexed to the prime time slot on Sunday Night Football.…

  5. Tony Romo puts damper on big party potential tonight at the Linc; next week in Dallas for NFC East crown

    Cowboys Redskins Football

    It’s never a great thing when you’re counting on the Washington Redskins. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys found a way to fight back today down in DC and juuuust missed crumbling for the second week in a row. The Redskins had the Cowboys up against the ropes in the fourth quarter but Romo found…

  6. Philly fans welcomed Moses Malone to town by stealing his dry cleaning, says Dr. J

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    Al Domenico, Billy Cunningham, Moses Malone

    Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving was a guest on Bill Simmons podcast over at Grantland and it’s pretty damn awesome. The first nugget that immediately jumps out at you is when Dr. J tells of Moses Malone coming to Philly from Houston and not being prepared for what was in store. Moses drove to practice…

  7. Charles Barkley talks about Leroy Jetson, fires his mother

    Dec 20, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT


    In making a point regarding Gregg Popovich’s “system ball” in San Antonio, Charles Barkley had some amazing and hilarious things to say. After talking about the seeming lack of hustle in some players today, Charles wished he played the game today. “Ain’t no doubt in my mind, if I played the NBA today, I’d be…

  8. Video: What does the Phanatic say?

    Dec 20, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Classic Phanatic

    Well this exists. For those of you who don’t spend much time on the Internet, this video posted at the official MLB YouTube page is the parody of the uber popular “What Does the Fox Say?” by Ylvis, a “comedy duo” from Norway. I can’t say I expect this version to be another Internet sensation…

  9. Friday’s Philadelphia Daily News back cover featuring Santa Claude is tremendous

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:14 PM EDT

    @PhillyDailyNews Friday Back Page — — Bob Vetrone Jr. (@BoopStats) December 20, 2013 Claude Giroux delivered an early Christmas present in the form of the best goal we’ve seen from the Flyers all year. The good folks over at the Philadelphia Daily News took full advantage of the opportunity with a perfect “Santa Claude”…

    You may have heard a couple of weeks back about Glen Macnow’s contract dispute with Sports Radio 94 WIP. Macnow has been with the station two decades but rumors were swirling that the station was not going to renew his contract in 2014. Today, reports that Macnow has reached an agreement with the station…

  11. Michael Carter-Williams leads all rookies in jersey sales, 15th among all NBA players

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    The Sixers are not a very good basketball team. In fact, they are rather bad. It’s also typically assumed that their fanbase is weak and unsupported when times are tough as judged by some low attendance numbers. But how about this shocker… The league released jersey sales numbers for October through December and get this:…

  12. Von Hayes, Santa collector

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT


    Much like their team on the field the past couple of seasons, the Phillies social media people have had their share of ups and downs. But every now and then they deposit one deep into the outfield seats. Von Hayes, Santa collector is one of those times. The team posted the above message with the…

  13. Video: Ruben Amaro Jr. attempts to hypnotize you with mesmerizing Christmas display

    Dec 19, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT


    Ruben Amaro Jr. addressed the media on Wednesday after making the signing of starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez official. The team also shared news that they brought catcher Lou Marson back to the organization and parted ways with the once highly touted catching prospect Sebastian Valle. Ruben says he still believes in the talent of his ball…

  14. Watch: Aaric Murray lights up Temple for 48

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:29 AM EDT


    You may remember Aaric Murray best for his worry-free neck tattoo, but now he’ll be remembered in Philadelphia for something much more impressive. The former La Salle Explorer lit up the Temple Owls on Wednesday night for 48 points, a new Liacouras Center record, surpassing Lynn Greer — who once fouled me in a Narberth…

  15. Video: Andre Iguodala almost does amazing thing

    Dec 18, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Jordan Hill

    Deadspin says it would have been the play of the year. I’m not sure I’d go that far, but it certainly would have been one ridiculously awesome highlight had Dre finished the slam over a New Orleans Pelicans defender. Alas, we’re left with a pretty awesome highlight that ends without a bucket. All positive directions…

  16. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: On questionable Chip play calling

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT


    If you’re not going to be down at the Linc on Sunday night for the big game against the Bears, the smart move would be to head to Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse and surround yourself with fellow Eagles fans. Nothing like a good random high five after a big touchdown — unless you…

  17. Joe Conklin’s Chip Kelly and the Chipmunks Christmas tune says Eagles coach is missing some nuts

    Dec 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


    Chip Kelly’s play call on 4th and 1 where he opted for a double reverse took some cojones. But leave it to the morning sports radio folks to attack chip for his lack of them. Mostly because of his squib kick decisions, I think. Joe Conklin and the folks over at the WIP morning show…

  18. Photo Gallery: Checking out Kendall Marshall, Aquille Carr and the Delaware 87ers

    Thanasis Antetokounmpo

    The Delaware 87ers recently kicked off their season down at the Bob Carpenter Sports Convocation Center in Newark and we were lucky to have friend of the Level and photographer Tug Haines down at a game last week to snap some great photos of the D-League action. You can check out the gallery below. There…

  19. Brett Brown: ‘We can’t guard anybody’

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:32 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, James Anderson

    “We can’t guard anybody. We can’t guard our own man,” Sixers head coach Brett Brown said after the team’s seventh straight loss. “It starts with individual breakdowns and we’re just trying to put out fires all behind it.” Joe Johnson agrees. The Brooklyn Nets’ shooter put up an impressive 29 points in the third quarter…

  20. What was DeSean Jackson yelling about on the sidelines? He seemed pissed.

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT


    DeSean Jackson put up some big numbers on Sunday in Minnesota — 10 catches for 195 — and actually caught a real nice touchdown from Nick Foles. But it was clearly going to be his outburst on the sideline that everyone on sports radio and the Internet were going to be talking about come Monday…

  21. 12 great photos from a snowy Army-Navy game in Philly, plus a successful cheerleader marriage proposal

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Army Navy Football

    If the now legendary Snow Bowl between the Eagles and Lions taught us anything it’s that people love photos of football in the snow. Couple a snowy affair in South Philadelphia with the pageantry of the Army-Navy game and you’ve got yourself a nice little photo gallery from this weekend. I was happy to see…

  22. Everybody is piling on Tony Romo’s choke job

    Dec 16, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Packers Cowboys Football

    Tony Romo and the Cowboys put together a spectacular display of fourth quarter ineptitude on Sunday afternoon. For whatever unknown reason, the Cowboys opted to throw the ball over and over instead of hand it off to help the clock tickaway as they had a pretty damn comfortable lead. Romo gave us all an early…

  23. GIF: Nick Foles’ block woulda been pretty sweet if it wasn’t illegal

    Dec 15, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT


    Going for it on 4th and 1 is a ballsy move. Calling a double reverse on 4th and 1 is the ballsiest. Chip Kelly did both. Maybe you didn’t like Chip getting extra cute when he only needed a yard to move the chains — Hi, Shady McCoy — but the play worked beautifully. Right…

  24. Brett Brown seems very happy with Nerlens Noel’s progress

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:34 PM EDT


    When you don’t see a guy on the court when you tune in for the Sixers every couple of nights, it’s easy to forget that they have one of the top prizes of the 2013 NBA Draft in Nerlens Noel. While Noel may not be seeing game action, he’s certainly hard at work and coach…

  25. Video: Danny Briere talks fondly of oft-maligned Philly fans

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT


    The Flyers have been playing some awful hockey as of late and after finishing off their road trip by letting the Bears put up a touchdown on them in Chicago last night they’re back in Philadelphia and hosting a familiar baby face this evening. Danny Briere returns to play at the Wells Fargo Center tonight…
