  1. 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…

  2. Everybody in San Antonio wanted to hug Brett Brown last night

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    brett.brown

    Brett Brown has nothing but respect for the San Antonio Spurs and always speaks incredibly highly of the memories and championships from the time he spent there. That respect goes both ways. Brown returned to San Antonio last night as head coach of a Philadelphia 76ers team that will likely set the NBA’s All-Time losing…

  3. Chip Kelly finally spoke to DeSean Jackson, as reported by Jaccpot10′s Instagram of course

    Mar 25, 2014, 7:28 AM EDT

    Chip.Kelly

    The DeSean Jackson’ saga in Philadelphia certainly has been a bizarre one, complete with plenty of he said she said that has left fans scratching there heads. One of the things that seemingly irked fans the most was Chip Kelly brushing off questions about DeSean last week with some mediocre humor. Then Howie Roseman spoke…

  4. Watch Sixers announcer Malik Rose call Tim Duncan a horrible teammate

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:40 AM EDT

    timduncan

    The old fan saying goes something like this: “The Sixers are driving me to drink.” Sixers announcer Malik Rose isn’t exactly a fan — at least not on the outside — and he probably can’t drink on the job, so the two-time NBA Champion has to find another outlet for the bad feelings that come…

  5. Video: Jeff Carter would like to remind you about the giant Stanley Cup ring on his finger

    “Worked out pretty well for us,” former Sea Isle City, New Jersey resident Jeff Carter said of the organ-eye-zation changing day that sent him and Mike Richards packing from the orange and black for good. Short, simple, and you can just feel the slow burn. Carter and Richie return to the Wells Fargo Center tonight…

  6. Poll: Would you rather be proposed to at a Phillies game or a Phillies 5K race?

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:33 PM EDT

    Phillies5kproposal

    Phillies fans from all across the Delaware Valley laced up their sneaks, put on their favorite Pat Burrell shirseys, and pinned numbers to their chest to run a couple of miles around Citizens Bank Park over the weekend. But only one lucky lady was greeted at the finish line with a diamond. We’ve seen countless…

  7. The Mets sent an awful tweet before deleting it this afternoon

    The Mets deleted their tweet, which, as you know, means it is no longer on the Internet and never happened anyway. pic.twitter.com/BIr6x8cXO3 — Jesse Spector (@jessespector) March 24, 2014 It used to be we could mock the Mets because they had an awful baseball team. With the way the tides have turned in the NL…

  8. Here are the Phillie Phanatic sunglasses that will be all the rage this summer at Citizens Bank Park

    The Phillies announced an array of new food, fan experiences, and gear that fans can enjoy down at Citizens Bank Park this summer. They’ll have a “Top 10 Moments of Citizens Bank Park” as chosen by the fans in celebration of their 10th year at the ballpark as well as a new Phanatical Rewards program…

  9. Mike Vick is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle

    Mar 21, 2014, 6:38 PM EDT

    vickjets

    The Jets have officially signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick. They made the announcement on Twitter this evening with a photo showing Vick putting pen to his new contract. Adam Schefter reports the deal to be of the one-year variety and worth $5 million. Schefter also points out the Jets have parted ways with…

  10. Reports now indicate DeSean Jackson doesn’t believe he’ll be back with Eagles

    DeSean Jackson

    Just spoke with two sources close to DeSean. Receiver now believes he will not be back. — Tim McManus (@Tim_McManus) March 21, 2014 Happy Friday, Philly sports fans. We’ll finish out the week with this report from Philly Mag’s Tim McManus who talked to multiple sources who tell him DeSean Jackson believes he will not…

  11. Here’s the heavily bleeped Hooters March Madness commercial that aired last night

    Hooters

    OK, it’s late, but did anyone else just have that bizarre Hooters commercial during the Louisville-Manhattan game? — Steve Moore (@Smoore1117) March 21, 2014 Thursday was a loooong day of hoops watching for many of us. So after sitting on the couch for a solid 12+ hours and surely enjoying an alcoholic beverage or four,…

  12. Watch Comcast’s original report on the Vet demolition 10 years ago today

    Mar 21, 2014, 1:57 PM EDT

    Vet

    I can’t remember where I was the day the Vet came down. All I can recall is that I was out of town and therefore unable to make it down to South Philly to watch the 700 level meet its end. Maybe I was a little disappointed for missing out on the destruction of Veterans…

  13. No D-Jax? No J-Roll? No Problem! @FakeWIPCaller weighs in

    JimmyRollins.DeSean.Jackson

    It’s been a week of turmoil for our local teams and a couple of their biggest stars, with DeSean Jackson supposedly about to be traded by the Eagles, and Jimmy Rollins reportedly on the outs with the Phillies, who are asking him to show “leadership.” If you ask me, good riddance to both. First of…

  14. You don’t want to hear what the scouts Jayson Stark talks to have to say about the Phillies

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:10 AM EDT

    sandberg

    On one hand it’s Friday and you can always handle bad news a little better on Friday. Plus you’ve got a full day of NCAA hoops to keep you occupied. On the other hand, none of this should come as much of a surprise to you. But Jayson Stark’s latest on your Philadelphia Phillies certainly…

    holywar

    A tough, tough loss for Phil Martelli and St. Joe’s in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament as the Hawks fell 89-81 in overtime to the UConn Huskies after having the victory within reach during regulation. A botched final possession in the final seconds of the second half didn’t help, and Halil Kanacevic fouling out…

  16. Phillies season ticket numbers down by at least 5,000

    Mar 20, 2014, 6:12 PM EDT

    phillies.fans

    I know at least three different people personally who opted not to renew their partial season ticket plans for the Phillies this season. A couple 17-game plans here and a couple Sunday packages there and it all adds up to roughly 5,000 less season tickets sold than last year. That number is according to the…

  17. Did you know Connor Barwin also played hoops at Cincinnati?

    Mar 20, 2014, 3:21 PM EDT

    Connor.Barwin

    Football players suiting up and balling on the hardwood isn’t exactly a new thing. Philadelphia fans are well aware of Donovan McNabb playing for Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orangemen, but did you know that current Eagle’s linebacker Connor Barwin was a pretty decent baller for the Cincinnati Bearcats? With Cincy facing off against Harvard…

The only possible explanation I can come up with is he’s…

  19. They’re calling Jayson Werth an ‘idiot’ down in Washington now

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:52 AM EDT

    Werth-a-rine

    Philadelphia fans know all to well that Jayson Werth is something of a character. He developed a reputation as a guy who didn’t always want to talk to the media and some painted him as a player who just had a bad “aura” to him. But he was a pretty darn good right fielder who…

  20. Finally, some good news: Hamels pleased with progress after bullpen

    Mar 19, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    hamels.clearwater

    Aside from Claude Giroux and the Flyers going on a nice little hot streak, it seems like it’s been all Jimmy Rollins not leading this and DeSean Jackson me me me me-ing that in the Philly sports talk world these days. So even the most minor bit of positive news out of Clearwater gets us…

  21. UPenn has a baseball team and they made this awesome trailer

    I’m a sucker for a cool YouTube video. I mean, part of my job is to watch videos all day long. So whether you’re promoting your brand of baseball gloves or your school’s baseball team, if the video is well done or even a little interesting, I’ll watch. And so here is a pretty badass…

  22. Watch Carlos Ruiz talk about his catcher’s mitt, his ‘baby’

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:21 AM EDT

    Chooch.glove

    Here’s a pretty cool video of some of the folks over at Wilson heading to Clearwater to hook up some of the Phillies with custom gloves. Jonathan Papelbon, Marlon Byrd, Carlos Ruiz and others talk about what they like in a glove and we learn a little bit about some of their superstitions. Apparently some…

  23. New Muppets movie uses Penguin mocking, Rowlf’s Flyers fandom as promotional tool

    If it was just Rowlf the Dog telling us he was a Flyers fan, we might have passed on pointing out this promo for the new Muppets movie. But whatever marketing people put this together realized there are penguins on staff over in Muppet Land, and used them in a delightful double entendre. So good…

  24. Quotable: Vegas likes what Eagles did in free agency, improved Super Bowl odds

    Mar 18, 2014, 1:51 PM EDT

    Super.Bowl.MVP

    The Eagles didn’t put together a Dream Team 2.0 over the past few weeks — that’s probably a good thing — but they did piece together some quality players on reasonable deals that can help them become a more complete team. Obviously, there are still needs to be addressed, potentially through the NFL draft, but…

    You’re only a four-year-old kid once. Eventually you’re going to grow up, go to middle school, then high school, probably college, find a career of your own, and then one day all of that hair on your head will just disappear. So little Phillip Martelli, grandson of St. Joe’s head coach Phil and son of…
