  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Roy Halladay is retiring from baseball

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    A dreary Monday morning just got a bit tougher. Roy Halladay is set to retire from the game of baseball. He’ll sign a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays and make the announcement later this afternoon, according to multiple reports. The decline of Halladay was one of the tougher things to watch on a…

    Lions Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Shady McCoy and the rest of the Eagles weren’t the only professionals to put on a hell of a performance during the blizzard in South Philadelphia on Sunday. The guys with the cameras in their hands from the Associated Press, USA Today Sports, and other outlets used the serene setting to…

  15. ‘Alcohol and costume fueled mud run on a bicycle’ in Philly this weekend sounds pretty cool

    Dec 6, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    Photo by Go Means Go

    The annual Manayunk Bike Race is fun for spectators and all, but this weekend there’s a bike race in Philadelphia that seems just a little more interesting for all involved. The Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships goes down this Sunday at Belmont Plateau but there are other events associated with the championship going on throughout…

  16. Connor Barwin is … THE JACKBACKER

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT


    The Mike’s cool. But you know what’s really cool? The Jack. That’s the name the Eagles have given the position Connor Barwin has been playing for the Eagles as of late because he’s pretty much doing it all on the defensive side of the ball. CSN’s Reuben Frank has a nice article on Barwin today…

  17. Watch Charles Barkley ride the subway for the first time

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT


    I’ve long suggested that there could be a website dedicated solely to documenting everything Charles Barkley says and does. It’d be full of hilarious anecdotes. It’d feature videos of Charles getting ready for his regular appearances on TNT or even better, when he does mundane stuff like rides the subway in New York City for…

  18. Video: If Chip Kelly calls a [crappy] play, it’s not because he was trying to fool the defense

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT


    Here’s a fun exchange from the press conference over at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia today as the Eagles prep for the Lions on Sunday. Inquirer columnist Bob Ford (I believe that’s his voice) asks Chip about defenses maybe doing some things early in an attempt to mask what they plan on doing later,…

  19. The Allen Iverson Celebriduck is making a comeback!

    Dec 5, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT


    Allen Iverson returned to the 76ers long after we thought we’d seen the last of him in South Philly, so why can’t the legendary Iverson Celebriduck make a comeback too? Longtime Sixers fans surely remember the buzz around Philadelphia when the 76ers launched one of the strangest and greatest promotional giveaways of all time: the…

  20. Don Tollefson: Maybe not an all-around good guy

    Dec 5, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Chiefs Eagles Football

    Don Tollefson worked in the local media in Philadelphia for decades and was well known for his charity work. Heck, in a post on this website in 2010, he was dubbed “Tolley Sunshine” and described thusly: By all accounts he’s a terrific guy who tirelessly supports and promotes local charities. He’s also, by a wide…

  21. Joe Frazier statue from 1971 Muhammad Ali knockdown gets Art Commission approval

    Dec 5, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT


    You may recall the Joe Frazier statue that was set to be built hitting a bump in the road when its original sculptor passed away. Good news for Smokin’ Joe fans today as the new design received approval from the Philadelphia Art Commission. “The sculpture will depict Frazier landing a left hook that knocked down…

  22. Even your phone thinks Nick Foles is the best QB in the NFL

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT


    Computers can’t lie. They’re all 1′s and 0′s and all that. Nick Foles is all TDs and zero interceptions. But give it a shot for yourself. Ask your phone who it thinks the best quarterback in the NFL is. No wonder Chip Kelly wants him to be quarterback of the Eagles for the next 1,000…

  23. Sometimes you get kicked in the face by an old man

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT


    Fights at sporting venues across the world have been happening since the days when Romans made people battle with actual lions and tigers and stuff. They’re nothing new. But every now and then a video of an older gentleman kicking a younger kid in the face pop up and you just have to watch. Arizona…

    Sixers Dream Team Final Auditions 07/17

    The Sixers went on a nice long stretch of losing over the past few weeks. They’re simply awful on the road, it seems. But they’ve bounced back a bit and earned a very hard fought double overtime victory on Tuesday night over the equally scrappy Magic — those dudes would NOT go away. So where…

    The winner of this week’s $25 gift card to Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse is regular commenter psudrozz who won mostly because we didn’t know what he was talking about despite it sounding intelligent and perhaps even funny/clever. Not sure. But this is what he said on Chip Kelly naming Nick Foles the Eagles…
