  1. Video: Sixers’ large-headed Betsy Ross mascot busts a move

    Apr 3, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT


    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…

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

    Apr 3, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT


    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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  6. Oddsmakers see Flyers’ chances of Stanley Cup dreams improving dramatically over last month

    Apr 2, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT


    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…

  8. Sons of Ben soccer fan group get their own beer from Yards

    Apr 2, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    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. According to an email that went out to all Sons of Ben members today, they’re getting a brew…

  9. Photo: The Eagles are removing the giant DeSean Jackson banner on side of Linc [UPDATE]

    Apr 1, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT


    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…

  10. Charles Barkley pranks Manute Bol with Rick Mahorn’s scary face

    Apr 1, 2014, 12:07 PM EDT


    In honor of April Fool’s Day Sixers PR man Michael Preston unearthed this gem and shared it with the world.

    Apr 1, 2014, 1:59 AM EDT

RT Desean Jackson, Garcon, D Hall, Wale in DC (via @Wale) — David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) April 1, 2014 The Redskins were listed as the oddsmaker’s favorite to land former Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson and if Monday night was any indication, Vegas sure is right a lot.

  12. Scenes from a goofy but victorious opening day in Texas for the Phillies

    Mar 31, 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

    Domonic Brown, Marlon Byrd

    The only thing Monday’s opening day down in Texas was missing was Chris Wheeler on your television calling baseball “goofy.” I’m not sure what was least expected: the Phillies bats erupting for 14 runs or Cliff Lee struggling mightily, allowing 8 earned runs on 11 hits over 5 innings of work. But at the end…

  13. Jimmy Rollins hits an opening day grand slam for his 200th career home run

    Mar 31, 2014, 3:10 PM EDT


    Jimmmmaaaaayyyy! Remember how fun this can be? Jimmy Rollins bashed a grand slam to the seats in right down in Texas in his second at-bat of the season. It just so happened to be the 200th home run of his career. It was the second major milestone Jimmy reached on the day. By making his…

  14. Reasons to get excited for Phillies baseball: At least we get to watch Cliff Lee every fifth day

    Mar 31, 2014, 12:14 PM EDT

    Looking, ummm, good there, Chase...

    They’re not really built to be a win now team. They haven’t been bad enough over the past few seasons to have promising young pieces to look ahead to a bright future. And their spring was one for the crapper. So aside from “it’s always nice to have baseball around” and “the lines at Citizens…

  15. Odds on who will sign DeSean Jackson: Skins and Raiders favorites

    Mar 31, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT


    DeSean Jackson is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle but chances are he’ll pop up somewhere and give Birds’ fans headaches. Kind of hopping it’s not the Redskins, who oddsmakers are placing as the favorite to sign the speedy wideout. Reports over the weekend said DeSean would be visiting DC today as the first stop on…

  16. What really happened with DeSean Jackson?

    Mar 31, 2014, 11:02 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    You probably heard that a dozen times over the weekend. Whether you were the one being asked or the words were coming out of your mouth, Philadelphians everywhere want to know what really happened with DeSean Jackson. I don’t think the answer is as clear cut as some would like it to be. I don’t…

    Mar 29, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia 76ers just lost their 26th straight game to tie an NBA record. The last time someone in Philly had that much trouble on a basketball court, he was sent to live with his Auntie and Uncle in Bel-Air. There’s more in the below video. [Jimmy Fallon]

    The Sixers did what they do last night down in Houston and fell to the rockets to earn their 26th loss in a row, tying the All-Time NBA record for losses in a row. Brett Brown spoke about the 26-game losing streak all matter-of-factly following the game, even echoing some of the sentiments Andrew put…

  21. The Pope has more Philly sports jerseys than you do

    Mar 27, 2014, 2:27 PM EDT

    Vatican Pope Family Meeting

    Unless you’re one of those people who love jerseys, maybe. Then you could possibly have more Philly sports jerseys than the Pope now does after Mayor Nutter and his cohorts showered the Pontifex with gifts, most of which were sports jerseys with “Pope Francis” on the back. From Dan McQuade at Philly Mag who suggested…

  22. Bobby Abreu will not make the Phillies roster

  23. GIF: Flyers goalie prospect slashes player in back of head

    Mar 26, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT


    We’ll just go right to the lede from Yahoo Canada: Slashing an opponent whose back is turned in the head might play well with hardcore Philadelphia Flyers fans, but for civilized people, probably not as much. Yeah, no. We’ll forget the undeserved swipe at Philly fans slide for a minute and pay our attention to…

  24. Reminder: The Phillies do have guys that can hit some homers occasionally

    Mar 26, 2014, 7:33 AM EDT


    I know you’re all recovering from the news that Kevin Frandsen is no longer in the Phillies organization while also dealing with the reality that Bobby Abreu still has a decent shot at making the opening day roster when the team flies north later this week, but here’s a little ray of sunshine from Florida…

  25. Area woman lashes out at the wrong Jets for signing Michael Vick

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson

    Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still a rather polarizing figure and anytime his name appears in the news there are going to be those who believe he deserves zero chances to be an upstanding member of society ever again. After Vick signed with the New York Jets last week, many of those people…
