  1. John Oates played this sweet Phillies-themed guitar on Jimmy Fallon

    John.Oates

    When it comes to custom-made music instruments made in honor of the best baseball team from Philadelphia, PA, nobody tops John Oates of legendary local rock duo Hall and Oates. Unless you consider DJ Jazzy Jeff’s turntables a rock instrument. Those things are dope too. John Oates was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon earlier…

  2. Maybe don’t boo Ryan Braun tonight

    Apr 9, 2014, 10:51 AM EDT

    Braun.daily.news

    Opening Day was fun for a couple of innings. Then we got reminded of some baseball realities. The Phils bullpen being one of them. And that some people at baseball games in Philadelphia get really, really drunk. May be a chicken or egg debate there, not sure. But one thing was very clear. Ryan Braun…

  3. Watch: The Phillie Phanatic stars in punny new Comcast SportsNet spots

    Phanatic.highlights3

    Being from the Galapagos Islands, the Phillie Phanatic is no stranger to evolution. But even the Phanatic isn’t always happy with the shade of green his furry coat of feathers comes in naturally. So in preparation of opening day, he may get some highlighting work done to it to give it that shiny texture that…

  5. Andrew Wiggins is the clear apple of Sixers geeks’ eyes

    NCAA Basketball: Battle4Atlantis-Kansas vs Wake Forest

    Obviously, the fate of the pesky ping pong balls on lottery night will have huge implications in Philadelphia, so while the season will mercifully end in a couple of weeks, the real stressful situation to determine the next direction of the franchise is right around the corner. The folks over at Liberty Ballers released their…

  6. There will be Phillies baseball today in South Philadelphia

    Mondays are a downer. Yesterday more so than usual given that our promise of opening day baseball in Philadelphia was taken from us and replaced with a dreary, wet, and boring day. But the baseball gods will reward our patience today with the promise of 60+ degrees and sunshine come first pitch at 4:07 pm…

  7. Relive UConn’s Championship night through the eyes of Charlie Villanueva

    Apr 8, 2014, 7:45 AM EDT

    Charlie.Villanueva

    Our Friday columnist here at The700Level.com, known to you all as The Evster, has something of a man crush on former UConn Huskie Charlie Villanueva. This is well documented. See: 8 reasons why the Sixers should, no MUST, trade for Charlie Villanueva. So with Kevin Ollie and the Huskies taking down Kentucky in an entertaining…

  8. McNabb: UConn vs. KU, who you got? Allen Iverson likes the Huskies

    Counting down till tip off, who do you have? UConn or KU? — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) April 7, 2014 Never change, Donovan. Never change. Since there’s no Philly sports action this evening, figured most of you would be tuning in to the National Championship game this evening between the Connecticut Huskies and Kentucky Wildcats. While…

    Here’s a pretty awesome video taken from the point of view of the Leap Frogs — the US Navy Parachute Team — as they jump from a plane 6,500 feet up and land smoothly on the bright green grass of Citizens Bank Park’s field. According to the video they’re falling at 120 mph towards earth.…

  10. Hopefully you’re not tailgating outside CBP right now

    Apr 7, 2014, 11:18 AM EDT

    phillies.rain

    The Phillies didn’t waste any time in postponing today’s scheduled home opener against the Brewers at 3:05 pm and moving it to Tuesday at 4:05 pm instead due to the weather forecast calling for rain all day long. The fact that they made the call over 24 hours in advance gave fans plenty of time…

  11. DeSean Jackson basically admits to knowing and spending time with gang members but denies affiliation

    Apr 4, 2014, 7:02 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson appeared on Friday night’s SportsCenter in a sit down interview with Stephen A. Smith that clarified a few questions but left us wondering more. I don’t think Smith did a particularly good job with DeSean, but he did get him to admit that he knows gang members and the response given when asked…

    Phillies Cubs Baseball

    Wrigley Field is celebrating 100 years of baseball this season and it all starts with the Philadelphia Phillies taking on the Chicago Cubs this afternoon in a matinée game serving as the Cubs 2014 home opener. It is one of three home openers the Phils will play in this season. The first was a win…

  13. Charles Barkley on Conan: I once tipped $25,000 [VIDEO]

    Charles.Conan

    Sir Charles was a guest on Conan O’Brien’s show on Thursday night and was his typical jovial self. One of the funnier segments was when Chuck unloaded on Shaq for doing too many endorsement deals and rubbing too much lotion on his fake body. Then he gets into some talk about tipping and admits to…

  14. Flyers ready for ‘huge’ game against on-their-heels Blue Jackets

    Apr 3, 2014, 5:47 PM EDT

    5-bobrovsky-USA

    They’re all pretty important for the playoff push at this point but they’re especially so when the opponent is just 4 points behind in the standings. The Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets this evening at the Wells Fargo Center and there’ll be a rather unique goalie matchup. Former Flyer Sergei Bobrovsky will take on former…

    Fan appreciation night for Sixers fans takes place this Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia and in advance of that big event the team promised “76 minutes of mayhem” today. The event took place from noon until… 1:16 pm down around 5th and Arch Streets. Many fans who showed up received…

  16. Why does Chip Kelly attend so many pro days of players the Eagles probably won’t draft?

    Apr 3, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    chip.kelly

    This video segment about Johnny Manziel’s pro day is obviously a couple of days old but I just saw it for the first time this morning and found part of it interesting. In it, Johnny Football talks a little bit about his relationship with Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly from the time years ago…

  17. Papelbon peeved at positioning pertaining to potential game-ending play (The Phils lost again).

    Apr 3, 2014, 9:11 AM EDT

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Two issues with last night’s walkoff loss in Texas, the second night in a row the Phillies came up on the short end of a walkoff. The first issue is obviously Jonathan Papelbon. Putting inflated salary aside, he’s simply nothing close to resembling a shutdown closer to finish last season and begin the 2014 campaign.…

  18. Of course Pat Burrell went yard when he took BP yesterday wearing khakis [VIDEO]

    Pat Burre BP Home Run 1

    Pat Burrell popped up on the blog yesterday due to the continuing legacy he’s created off the field when it comes to the ladies, but the Bat can still bash. He still has it at the dish as well. CSN Bay Area posted the above clip of Burrell, currently a scout for the San Francisco…

    “ Pat Burrell is still out working for the San Francisco Giants as a “special assignment scout” and assistant to general manager Brian Sabean which means as part of his current job description he will occasionally drop by local sports talk radio stations. And sometimes the radio hosts he’s speaking with will ask him perfect…

    Apr 2, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

    schenn.simmonds

    A month ago the Flyers were a pretty longshot to win the 2014 Stanley Cup with oddsmakers giving them a 33/1 chance of a parade heading down Broad Street this summer. A red hot month of March later, one that included wins over the Penguins, Blackhawks, Blues, Stars, Kings, basically some of the best teams…

    The dedicated Union fan group that you hear banging their drums and singing throughout entire Philadelphia Union games down in Chester are being rewarded for their efforts in the best way possible: in the form of beer.

    That was fast. As you can see in the above photo, the Eagles have already removed the giant DeSean Jackson billboard/banner that hung on the side of Lincoln Financial Field. Here’s our post when it first went up when McNabb left town. The Eagles like to make the banner art somewhat ambiguous as not to…

    In honor of April Fool’s Day Sixers PR man Michael Preston unearthed this gem and shared it with the world. It featured Charles Barkley showing Manute Bol some sort of dinner table with those serving dishes usually reserved for hotel room service, only problem was under one of them was the scary mug of Rick…
