  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Photo: I think there’s an alien growing inside Sly Stallone

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT


    We posted the trailer for Rocky 12 “Grudge Match” starring Rober De Niro and Slyvester Stallone a couple of months ago but even that atrocity couldn’t prepare us for the sight of the octogenarian Rocky Balboa that showed up in our Instagram feed this morning. The spot is from the same Sports Illustrated with Philadelphia…

  15. Connor Barwin says Eagles used medical latex gloves under football gloves for Snow Bowl

    Dec 12, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT


    Fan favorite Connor Barwin was a guest on Jimmy Traina’s podcast over at today and shared a couple of the secrets the Eagles used during the Snow Bowl against the Lions in frigid Philadelphia last week. Some of the tricks to stay warm were pretty typical, like a long-john type pant underneath their actual…

  16. Phillies sign pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona

    Dec 12, 2013, 10:54 AM EDT


    The Phillies finally made some waves at the Winter Meetings on Thursday as sources tell’s Jim Salisbury that the team has signed free agent pitcher Roberto Hernandez who was formerly known as Fausto Carmona. He pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays last season and finished the year with a 6-13 record and a 4.89…

  17. The current Papelbon header on

    Dec 11, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT


    … currently reads “Please Take Papelbon” and includes this nugget from Jim Salisbury who is down working the Winter Meetings in Florida: The club also continues to look to move closer Jonathan Papelbon. “They’re selling the [crap] out of him,” a representative from one club said. You may have heard rumblings that there are people…

  18. Chip Kelly doesn’t believe in any stupid SI cover jinx; but the power of the conch compels

    Dec 11, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


    A couple of solid one-liners from Chipper at his Wednesday press conference. First, he was asked about Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles being jinxed due to the second-year quarterback earning a spot on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. Q: Are you aware of the @SInow cover jinx? Coach Kelly: I don’t believe…

  19. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: On the Snow Bowl atmosphere

    Smiths Logo - Bar

    Our January 23rd, meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse is quickly approaching. Just a few reminders that it’s a Thursday night so you really should have no excuse not to come, the Flyers will be on many of their 11 televisions, but really it’ll be a great chance to mingle with both…

  20. Evan Turner on driving

    Dec 10, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT


    The Sixers are a team who are going to have to deal a whole lot with having to put losses behind them and move on to the next game at hand. Evan Turner gave a curious answer at practice today as to to how they may attempt to do move past the L’s. “You don’t…

  21. Jonathan Papelbon’s ugly Christmas sweater photo is phenomenal

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT


    Ugly Christmas Sweater parties have been going on ever since the Cosby Show first aired in 1984, so it’s safe to say we all have our own awkward photos wearing some horrid red and green sweater with snowflakes knitted into it — maybe a reindeer if you’re real dedicated. But I also think it’s safe…

  22. A few more fond remembrances of Roy Halladay

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:14 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    A number of former and current Philadelphia Phillies players shared their thoughts on the great Roy Halladay yesterday. We’ll share some of those below, but first a few links from around the web today. I also wanted to share my most memorable post on Halladay. It was a simple post about how he talks to…

  23. Here’s a lovely Winter Wonderland video of the Snow Bowl

    Dec 10, 2013, 9:31 AM EDT


    #SnowBowl from Philadelphia Eagles on Vimeo. Playing in the snow never gets old. Playing in the snow and winning a huge football game going away is something you’ll remember forever. The folks behind the #FlyEaglesFly campaign put together this lovely video from the Snow Bowl victory set to the holiday classic, Winter Wonderland. The “and…

  24. Roy Halladay places ad in Daily News thanking Philadelphia fans

    Dec 9, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT


    Roy Halladay retired from the game of baseball this afternoon in an emotional press conference after signing a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. But Halladay wanted to make it very clear that he was extremely thankful for his time in Philadelphia and that he will always fondly remember the playoff runs he and…

  25. Watch Roy Halladay’s retirement press conference live

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT


    In a sense, it’s nice to see Roy Halladay know that his body has nothing left to give the game of baseball. But damn it if it’s not sad to see one of the most likable Phillies hang it up having never achieved his dream of hoisting the World Series Trophy. The chances of that…
