  1. Video: Carlos Ruiz surprises local 6-year-old boy battling leukemia

    Nov 25, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Phillies made the re-signing of catcher Carlos Ruiz official last week. And while the specifics of his 3-year contract are up for debate among the baseball savvy, the awesomeness of Chooch off the field is most certainly not. He added to his awesomeness in a special way last week. Chooch showed up to…

  2. Eagles still control their own playoff destiny but wildcard now viable; plus black jerseys Sunday

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT


    Prior to this weekend’s action, it was commonly believed that the Birds would have to win the NFC East in order to earn a spot in the playoffs. After an exciting weekend of football around the NFL, however, it’s actually possible they could sneak in with a wildcard spot. Phil Sheridan blogging for ESPN explains…

  3. Nick Foles had a historic month of November

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT


    Nick Foles has been downright impressive as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles — especially so over his past few games. Just how impressive has Foles been over the last few weeks? Check out this QB rating nugget for the month of November that was dug up by the NFL’s Director of NFC Football…

  4. The Cowboys won and there’s an Andy Reid / butt GIF going around

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT


    The Eagles may have been off relaxing in the warm weather — we’re looking at you, Conor Barwin (okay, maybe not you exactly) — but there was plenty of great football to keep us entertained on Sunday. Unfortunately, the Cowboys eeked out a victory over the Giants to jump the Eagles as leaders of the…

  5. Mike Vick says Nick Foles should remain the starter

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT


    For whatever reason, Chip Kelly doesn’t seem to be a fan of naming a starting QB. All of his intimations are that Nick Foles will be his guy. Nick is winning games and taking great care of the ball. That’s what Chip values at the position. So pretty much everybody agrees that Nick Foles should…

  6. You can purchase Shane Victorino’s scraggily beard hair on eBay

    Nov 21, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT


    Just felt the need to point that out to you. It’s true. You can, in fact, purchase the beard hair of Red Sox players Shane Victorino and David Ortiz on eBay. Mike Oz of Yahoo!’s Big League Stew explains, “The items come with autographed razors used at the post-World Series ceremonial shaving that both Ortiz and Victorino…

  7. Joe Biden is a crazy person, also a Phillies fan

    Nov 21, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT


    Joe Biden was talking some smack on your favorite sandwich today down in Washington, DC. Some Delaware sandwich shop opened up a DC location and the Veep was there to talk some smack on Philly’s finest. That’s crazy talk. But then he also kinda stood up for Phillies fans, I think. So we’ll give him…

  8. Chip Kelly and Nick Foles mic’d up for the Redskins game is awesome

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    The Sound FX clip over on the Eagles website of Chip Kelly and Nick Foles being mic’d up for Sunday’s win over the Redskins is fantastic. You get a glimpse into what the coach who loves speed is like on the sidelines and how everyone else, from the Eagles quarterback to the referees on the…

  9. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: The guy who praised Paul Holmgren

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT


    I stopped in at Smith’s on Tuesday to have lunch. It included all the important food groups: vegetables, steak, and beer. Smith’s steak salad is great. And beer (Harpoon) with lunch is always a wise decision. May I suggest to the comment of the week winner that when you go to use your $25 gift…

  10. VIDEO: Donovan McNabb responds to Shawn Andrews’ claims: ‘Are you serious?’

    Nov 21, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Left: Shawn Andrews. Right: Donovan McNabb hugging Shawn's brother Stacy.

    Donovan McNabb responded yesterday to Shawn Andrews’ claims that the Eagles quarterback was degrading towards him and spread rumors that really affected his time in Philadelphia. McNabb was speaking on NBC Sports Radio and dismissed Andrews’ claims as outlandish more so than actually responding substantively to any of the claims: “For everything that I’ve been…

  11. Alllllllright! Way to go, Donnie!

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT


    Eagles punter Donnie Jones was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his impressive performance on Sunday which Reuben Frank calls the greatest performance ever by an Eagles punter. We’re stoked for Donnie and just happy it gave us a chance to use the above headline.

    You know what a totally normal thing to see on the streets of Philadelphia is? A horse wearing an Eagles hat. Totally normal. This horse is wearing an Eagles hat. — Dan McQuade (@dhm) November 20, 2013  

  13. Lorenzo’s Pizza now available at the Wells Fargo Center

    Nov 19, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT


    Some strange people around the Internets were not exactly satisfied recently with the “limited” food offerings at the beautiful home of the Flyers, Sixers, and numerous Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber concerts. Those nitwits will be happy to learn that Lorenzo & Sons Pizza — a staple of South Street and Will Smith songs —…

  14. It sure looked like Evan Turner got fouled before getting T’ed up

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Oh, Evan. The KidET got T’ed up at a very inopportune time in last night’s tough loss in Dallas to the Mavericks. The Sixers held their own on the final night of their challenging road trip and found themselves right in the game down to the wire. An Evan Turner drive-and-flail ended in a no-call…

  15. Charles Barkley says ‘black people don’t play beer pong’ after Jordan pong comeback

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT


    Michael Jordan was spotted (not wearing something truly awful for once) playing beer pong last week and the Internet was all abuzz. This was a big deal for some reason. This didn’t really register on our radar until TMZ put a camera in front of Charles Barkley’s face last night and asked him about MJ’s…

  16. Bill Cosby’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon last night was bizarre

    Nov 19, 2013, 9:42 AM EDT


    Anyone up late last night hoping for some lovely moments between Bill Cosby and the Roots on Jimmy Fallon were left a bit puzzled after a bizarre performance from the Jello Pudding Master. Cosby was on Fallon to help promote his upcoming Comedy Central standup show which airs this weekend and is apparently his first…

    Philadelphia Marathon

    While most of you were gearing up for a football game at the Linc with some cold beers and grilled meats, thousand of more athletic people were putting their bodies through the joy of running 26.2 miles through the streets of Philadelphia. Here’s a quick little gallery of some of the runners, including race winner…

  18. Now the refs in Philly are apparently cursing at Eagles’ opponents

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT


    Maybe spending all that time around 69,000 Philadelphians in South Philly rubbed off on the referees working yesterday’s Eagles-Redskins game. Because one umpire directed some very foul language at one of the Redskins players. You can watch the clip of Trent Williams discussing the incident above and read the transcript from the Washington Post below:…

  19. Multiple reports say Chooch is re-signing with the Phillies

  20. Watch Shady McCoy steal a Redskins fan’s flag

    Nov 17, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT


    Prior to kickoff this afternoon at the Linc, some Redskins fan was attempting to fly his Redskins Country flag in South Philadelphia. LeSean McCoy was not having any of it. Shady went over to high five some Birds fans and snatched the flag right from the aforementioned Redskins fan. He then walked away and tossed…

  21. Eagles post cartoon of Nick Foles as Napoleon Dynamite

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT


    Not sure if you caught this earlier in the week but Nick Foles, the current starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles who has yet to throw an interception this season, was asked about the frequent comparison he gets to the character in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. “I get it a lot,” Foles said with a…

  22. So were all of those previous #10mode efforts only really 8s or 9s?

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    DeSean Jackson has been having a fine season. He’s put up some good numbers and caught some real nice and lengthy TDs. His teammates are even saying he’s been a better teammate this year. Eagles beat writer Tim McManus has an article about DeSean’s big turnaround this season and it includes this gem about DJacc…

  23. GIF: Andre Iguodala buzzer beats the Thunder, leaves front row fans hanging

    Nov 15, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    It hasn’t been all that difficult moving on from Andre Iguodala as a Sixers fan. Sure, he’s continued his all-around style of play with his current club, the Golden State Warriors. But he’s never reached superstar levels and he still hasn’t been totally likable as demonstrated by his reaction after drilling this buzzer beater against…

  24. The Phillies add a Clete

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

  25. The power of Chip compels you… not to do that shot

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT


    Chip Kelly and his Philadelphia Eagles have a mantra. Habits reflect the mission. Whatever that means. Okay, what does it mean? Vinny Curry explains: “All he’s saying is basically follow the blueprint and pick your head up at the end of the season and see where we are,” defensive end Vinny Curry said. “And so…
