  1. Shane Victorino is a World Champion of baseball once again

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Shane.Victorino.World.Champ.Sox04

    There’s just something awesome about Shane Victorino with the bases loaded in the postseason. The Flyin’ Hawaiian made his mark on history once again last night when he ripped a bases clearing double high off the Green Monster to put the Red Sox up for good last night en route to the Red Sox defeating…

  2. Oops. Jrue Holiday thanks Pelicans fans pregame on behalf of himself and the Sixers.

    Oct 31, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    Jrue

    MCW’s wildly impressive NBA debut last night may make the moving on from Jrue Holiday process just a little bit easier for Sixers fans. Still, it’s not going to happen over night. And it certainly isn’t going to be easy for Jrue either. Holiday was given the honor of addressing the New Orleans crowd last…

  3. Even Allen Iverson’s retirement photos have me captivated

    Oct 31, 2013, 2:34 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    It was an announcement years in the making. We all knew it was coming. And yet Allen Iverson still has the ability to captivate us all. He told some stories. He showed the love for the coaches and players who helped make his career possible. He shed a few tears. And he reminded us of…

  4. Video: Yes, the Sixers really did score 19-straight points to start the season against the Heat

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    MCWslam

    The Sixers’ season got underway on Wednesday night and they wasted no time flipping the script on everything fans of this team knew about the planet called Earth we live on. They scored 19-straight points to start the game before Miami notched a single bucket. Michael Carter-Williams got an open-court dunk for the first NBA…

  5. The Eagles show of brotherly love towards the Sixers is adorable

    From our own 10, 9, 8, 7 to the @Sixers: Good luck this season! #TogetherWeBuild #FlyEaglesFly #BrotherlyLove pic.twitter.com/RCDmFHbm4R — Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) October 30, 2013 For whatever reason, people get a big kick out of the different sports franchises in this town supporting one another in any way. Sometimes it’s as simple as Mike Vick…

  8. Charles Barkley on Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Following up on AU’s fantastic reminder that the NBA Draft Lottery is a tricky thing, I thought it worthwhile to point out another smart person’s take on Andrew Wiggins. Sir Charles spoke to Sports Illustrated (via CSN) recently about the Sixers and their future. The quote that I enjoyed in particular was when asked about…

  9. Freddie Mitchell gets three-plus years in prison for tax fraud, says TMZ

    Oct 29, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Freddie.Mitchell

    I guess that means the judge wasn’t buying Freddie Mitchell’s defense that head injuries he sustained during his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles contributed to the tax fraud schemes he pulled off once he was out of the league. After appearing in court last week, Mitchell was apparently sentenced today. TMZ has the report:…

  10. Five years ago today we learned what winning felt like

    Oct 29, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    EnricoWorldSeries200808

    Before I even got to the ball park on October 29th, 2008, I had that feeling that so many others had that day: that this would be the day the Phillies finally bring a championship to the city of Philadelphia during my lifetime. I remember screaming and jumping up and down and saying out loud…

  11. Philadelphia bar still refuses to show Eagles games because dog fighting

    Oct 28, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Andy Reid, Michael Vick, Tony DUngy

    I suppose there’s good news and bad news for residents of Graduate Hospital / Fitler Square / South Street West / whatever-you-like-to-call the area of the city near 22nd and Lombard Streets in Philadelphia. The bad news is that you can’t watch an Eagles game at Doobie’s, the cozy corner dive bar known for it’s…

  12. Eagles-Giants TV analyst: ‘What a sorry excuse for professional football’

    Oct 28, 2013, 10:04 AM EDT

    Giants Eagles Football

    It’s one thing when we all sit at home and make fun of just how awful of a football game we watched between the Eagles and Giants yesterday. But that’s part of the reason Twitter and hard alcohol exists, so we can bitch about the things we endure as Philly sports fans, try to make…

  13. Freddie Mitchell says brain injuries contributed to tax fraud, had judge watch ‘League of Denial’

    Oct 25, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Freddie.Mitchell

    Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchel was in court this week down in Orlando in front of a Federal judge who the former People’s Champ hoped would show him some mercy. FredEx claims that head injuries he suffered playing football contributed to the tax fraud he plead guilty to earlier this year. The details are…

  14. This is basically a 46-second Eli Manning derp face in video form

    Oct 25, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Image (2) thankseli.jpg for post 485046

    I’ll admit, the love theme threw me off for a second. But then the joy of watching Eli Manning derp around the field thanks to the handy work of your Philadelphia Eagles made everything right in the world. It’s the latest production from the Eagles in their great #FlyEaglesFly series. Smart work on the editor’s…

  15. Charles Barkley doesn’t care if Mike Vick needs a cane and a walker

    Oct 24, 2013, 5:09 PM EDT

    charles.barkley

    Sixers legend Charles Barkley is never one to be shy about his opinions on all things sports. He was a guest on 94 WIP on Thursday afternoon and talked, among many other things, about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situation. Not surprisingly, Sir Charles has a strong opinion. We’ll update this post with more from Chuck’s…

  16. I guess I’m pulling for Shane Victorino in the World Series

    Oct 23, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    victorino.ortiz

    The World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals gets underway this evening up at Fenway Park. With the hopes of Philadelphia bringing a trophy back to Citizens Bank Park shelved for at least another year or five, the only logical rooting interest in this matchup is to pull for the…

  17. Tony Wroten made a YouTube movie about the Sixers’ young rap group

    Oct 23, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Tony.WRoten

    The 2013-2014 Philadelphia 76ers may only have something like six actual NBA players (says Brett Brown), but at least they have a rap group, ammirite?!? Shit this is gonna be a long season. No, really. Apparently some of the youngsters on the Sixers roster including Michael Carter-Williams and Tony Wroten have formed a rap group…

  18. Reminder: Toni Kukoc was European which made him awesome

    Oct 23, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    kukoc

    Many people forget that Toni Kukoc played an important role in the Sixers’ magical run to the NBA Finals back in 2001. Kukoc was one of the important pieces — along with Nazr Mohammed, Theo Ratliff and Temple great Pepe Sanchez — that were traded away by Billy King to bring in Dikembe Mutombo to…

  20. This old NFL Films video on the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is great

    Oct 18, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    cowboys.cheerleaders

    A commenter posted this last night on Dave’s truly wonderful “Hater’s guide to the Dallas Cowboys” but we thought it was worth highlighting in it’s own post to remind you just how awful the Dallas Cowboys truly are. It’s a rather old NFL Films piece on the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry that ends sometime around the change…

    All Tastykakes are delicious. But all Tastykakes are not created equal. Some are just a bit more delicious than others. This is the order of deliciousness: 15. Anything sugar free Just buy some carrot sticks. 14. Snowballs Are they really pink? What kind of person buys these? 13. Dreamies Twinkie’s step sister. 12. Chocolate Bells…

  23. Hater’s guide to the Dallas Cowboys (and why you should never date a Cowboys fan)

    With first place on the line this weekend, I thought it would be a good opportunity to revisit our dear ‘ol divisional rivals from Texas. Now, the Cowboys haven’t really been on our radar these past two years; we’ve focused most of our energy on hating our own team. To truly hate another, as they…

  24. Why was Bernard Hopkins wearing an alien mask on live TV?

    Bernard.Hopkins

    You could say that Bernard Hopkins has been hit in the head many, many times throughout his life. And you wouldn’t be wrong. But that may or may not have anything to do with why the “pride of Philadelphia” and many-time world champion boxer was wearing an alien mask while appearing on Philly Sports Talk…
