    Smiths Logo - Bar

    Since our big meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar on January 23rd (RSVP here!) will be in conjunction with a Flyers game being shown on the TVs, we thought it was time to award our comment of the week to one of you guys dropping knowledge about the orange and black. We go to…

  2. Just Mayor Michael Nutter in London giving Tony Blair a Philadelphia Union jersey

    Nov 6, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Nutter and Blair13

    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has been spending some time in London this week in an attempt to get some British businesses to think of Philly when looking for cities to work in in the future. He also apparently saw some bridges and towers and princes and whatnot, and maybe attempted to drum up some tourism…

  3. Dr. J talks epic dunking on the Colbert Report, canceled game with Obama and Kareem

    Nov 6, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT


    Julius Erving was a guest on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report last night to help promote his new book Dr. J, The Autobiography. The book has already made some waves for revealing that one of the reasons the good Doc had a child outside of marriage is because the young lady he impregnated had some…

  4. Of course Michael Carter-Williams’ first word was ‘ball’

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT


    There’s probably a lot of similarity to the first words kids say: Ma-ma, Da-da, Isaiah Pead, dog, etc. I think you’ll be happy to know that the first word out of the mouth of exciting Sixers’ rookie Michael Carter-Williams was in fact “ball.” Who cares that that’s actually one of the top ten most common…

  5. The Steph Curry to Iguodala oop was a beaut, plus Dre’s sick behind the back pass

    Nov 4, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT


    The street saying goes that the king stay the king. But that doesn’t seem to be the case this evening as the reigning NBA Power Ranking Champions of Week 1 got slapped around by the Golden State Warriors on their home hardwood. Check mate. Former Sixer Andre Iguodala is leading the way and drained a…

  6. Charlie Manuel busy cleaning gutters but still considering job with Phillies

    Nov 4, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT


    Inquirer Columnist Bob Brookover had the pleasure of recently spending some time on the phone with former Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel. They talked about what Charlie’s been up to as of late and also what the future may hold in store for the soon-to-be 70-year-old. First, I just love this quote about how Charlie’s been…

  7. What the Sixers?! Week one champions of all the power rankings

    Nov 4, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT


    To quote Andrew Unterberger from his recap of the Sixers big win over the Bulls this weekend: “We’re in uncharted waters here, people. Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend.” Three wins. Zero loses. And three different NBA power rankings put your Philadelphia 76ers at the top of the…

  8. Ray Emery: A true Philadelphia hero for our time

    Nov 4, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT


    On Friday night, things were looking pretty ugly for the Flyers, and for our city too. The Flyers were down 7-0 to the Washington Capitals, in front of a hostile Wells Fargo Center crowd. In the third period, things looked pretty hopeless. At that point, some teams would have rolled over and died. Some teams…

  9. Nick Foles has thrown 7 TDs before… in a video game

    Nov 4, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went out and threw an NFL record-tying 7 touchdowns on Sunday in Oakland. It was an amazing performance that almost nobody saw coming. Probably not even Nick Foles. “I don’t think Nick Foles ever seen anything on his film that would give him any indication that he’d throw for 7…

  10. Nick Foles was on fire in the first half

    Nov 3, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Eagles Raiders Football

    The Eagles lead the Oakland Raiders 28-13 after the first half thanks in large part to the impressive play of Nick Foles and Riley Cooper. Foles was 15-19 in the first two quarters, good for 260 yards and 4 touchdowns to 0 interceptions. Foles had a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the half. The Birds…

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

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT


    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…

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

    Oct 31, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT


    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…

  13. 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…

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

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT


    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…

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

    Oct 30, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT


    From our own 10, 9, 8, 7 to the @Sixers: Good luck this season! #TogetherWeBuild #FlyEaglesFly #BrotherlyLove — 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…

  16. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar

    Today’s comment of the week involves pig farming. But before we get to that! Don’t forget to mark your calendar for the January 23rd Level meetup and Flyers watch party we’ll be having at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar  located in Rittenhouse in Center City. All the cool blogger nerds will be there. If you’ve never…

  17. Either Scott Hartnell or his poodle got a haircut

    Sad day. New look. Looks like a poodle got a hair cut — Scott Hartnell (@Hartsy19) October 30, 2013  

  18. Charles Barkley on Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Image (1) charlesbarkleyletterman700level.jpg for post 487049

    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…

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

    Oct 29, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT


    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:…

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

    Oct 29, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT


    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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

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

    Oct 25, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT


    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…

  24. 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…

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

    Oct 24, 2013, 5:09 PM EDT


    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…
