  1. The Sixers lost obviously but watch MCW achieve triple double with just 2.2 seconds left

    Michael Carter-Williams

    The sun rises in the east and sets in the west and the Sixers lost on Monday night. The notable takeaway from the ugly evening up at the Garden was MCW’s triple double. Notable for the fact that it was just the second of his young NBA career but also for the fashion in which…

  2. What happens on April 4th, 2014?

    Mar 10, 2014, 3:32 PM EDT

    nerlens.captain.america

    On Sunday, Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel tweeted a single date: 4-4-14. Twitter, immediately, was abuzz. What could it mean? Is Noel — who hasn’t yet suited up for an NBA game because of the torn ACL he suffered last year — plotting to finally play that day? The Sixers take on his hometown Boston Celtics…

  3. Video proof that Wayne Simmonds can dunk a basketball

    Simmer.dunk

    Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux took center stage at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday like they’ve done countless times before, only this time they were playing on hardwood instead of ice. The pair suited up to play against the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in South Philadelphia and those in attendance certainly got a show. Prior…

  4. Photo: Claude Giroux can do anything (probably not dunk tho)

    #Flyers‘ Claude Giroux spins the basketball after getting guidance from the Harlem Globetrotters’ “Handles” Franklin. pic.twitter.com/zte1229ECV — Sam Carchidi (@BroadStBull) March 7, 2014 For some strange reason Flyers’ teammates Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds will team up in a game against the legendary Harlem Globetrotters this weekend down at the Wells Fargo Center in South…

  5. Brett Brown: ‘I think there is a win in the group, maybe a few.’

    Mar 7, 2014, 1:52 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown says, funny enough, that he really loves the job of coaching the Sixers. Despite having ridiculously low odds of losing the remainder of their games this season (3/1) Brown doesn’t let his attitude sink as low as his team’s record. Brown was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning and…

  6. Jayson Stark on Larry Bowa, the ‘Rollins Whisperer’

    Mar 7, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    larry.bowa

    Philadelphia fans have been yapping about Jimmy Rollins not legging out ground balls for like a decade. That’s nothing new. But fans are also not legendary Phillies shortstop and former coach Larry Bowa. Bowa is back on the bench this season helping out with Ryne Sandberg’s crew. ESPN’s Jayson Stark caught up with the two…

  7. Fan stretches (on concrete) right along with the Phillies at spring training

    Mar 7, 2014, 11:51 AM EDT

    Streeeeetch

    Yeah, I don’t know. You kinda just have to watch. And sure enough, yeah, there’s some lady laying on the concrete under the seats down in Florida stretching along with the Phillies — who are laying on luxurious fluffy green grass, mind you. And they say Cardinals fans are the best in baseball. Thanks to…

  8. Phillies announce ‘R U Game? Talent Search’ but it’s not actually for starting pitching help

    Mar 6, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Kid Rock

    Title says it all. Well, mostly. It’s actually a talent search for national anthem singers. The full press release: WHAT: Hundreds of talented singers in the Delaware Valley will have their chance to prove that they have what it takes to sing the national anthem at a 2014 Phillies game. Fans, in groups of one…

  9. There are tornado warnings in Florida and Ben Revere is bored, so… SELFIE!

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    Ben.Revere.selfie

    It’s not exactly Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt but it’s not bad. “It’s raining I’m bored.. Time for a selfie and the best selfie ever! #phillies #wecray,” Ben Revere captioned the photo with. They so cray indeed. I mean, how many of these Philadelphia Phillies can you even name? Meanwhile, the Phillies beats fear for their lives.…

  10. Adrian Peterson thinks Mike Vick would *something something* make the Vikings a playoff team

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:22 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Ahh, Twitter… It probably all started with CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora writing yesterday that Mike Vick’s time in Philadelphia is done, according to his sources. Most in Philly believed this to be true prior to La Canfora’s article, but nobody’s response was quite as enjoyable as Howard Eskin, ultimate arbiter of what is or…

  11. Cole Hamels could miss all of April after suffering setback

    Mar 6, 2014, 9:55 AM EDT

    cole.hamels

    Not the best news out of Clearwater, Florida today as Cole Hamels has suffered a setback in his quest to ready his arm for a mid-April return to the mound in regular season game action. Reports from the beats in Clearwater indicate that it’s not an injury, but rather serious “fatigue” from attempting to get…

  12. Mosher: DeSean Jackson’s days likely numbered in Philadelphia

    Mar 5, 2014, 7:45 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    The Eagles parting ways with one receiver in Jason Avant on Tuesday wasn’t exactly shocking. Today, we learned that the organization parting ways with another, DeSean Jackson, could be more of a possibility than previously thought. CSNPhilly.com’s Geoff Mosher appeared on PFT Live on Wednesday afternoon, which you can listen to below, and pointed out…

  13. Sometimes you just want to give Scott Hartnell a hug [VIDEO]

    Hartnell.stache

    Hey, it’s trade deadline day and as Kimmo Timonen can relate to, you don’t always know when you’ll have your next opportunity to give Scott Hartnell a hug. So hug now. Hug Hartsy while you can. He’s a good Hartsy and a longtime teammate. No word yet on any deals from the Flyers just yet…

  14. ‘Kroll Show’ does Philly vs. Pittsburgh rivalry which features amazing vintage Darren Daulton hot dog Philly Mag cover

    Kroll.Show.Dutch.Daulton

    Comedy Central’s “The Kroll Show” took a stab at the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh rivalry last night with a sketch about two pawn shops in PA’s biggest cities run by a couple of cousins. It features Nick Kroll as a Philly pawn shop owner “Murph” down on South Street who gets understandably excited at the prospect of a…

  15. Hose Report: Turkey Bacon stood no chance at the plate

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:32 AM EDT

    Kratz

    Not a ton of interesting chatter coming out of Clearwater, Florida this week. The Phillies are back in action this afternoon after a loss last night. We’ve been a little lax on our hardball chatter, so let’s take a look… The Daily News’ Ryan Lawrence has an interesting look at prospect Roman Quinn and his…

  16. Allen Iverson in latest Reebok spot: ‘We talkin bout pants?!’

    With towering figures like Shaquille O’Neal and Shawn Kemp getting the bulk of the screen time, little man Allen Iverson steals the show — even in the barber shop. Above is the latest from Reebok Classic. The YouTube description describes it as such: Watch Episode 3 of “The Retro Shop” starring Shaq, Kemp, and comedian,…

  17. Sixers owner Josh Harris collected ~$400 million in 2013 or roughly another Sixers franchise

    Mar 4, 2014, 9:18 AM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    The Wall Street Journal reported on the banner year private equity firms had in 2013. Right near the top of the list of earners is Sixers’ owner Josh Harris and his Apollo Global Management teammates. Now, Harris didn’t pull in the $546.3 million that Apollo’s CEO Leon Black took home in dividends and investment proceeds…

    Kids who grew up in Delaware County are used to their place of origin being the brunt of many a jokes. And for the most part Delco earns it. That said, there are a few treasures nobody can take from us. Former Sixers GM Ed Stefanski and longtime L.A. Angels Manager Mike Scioscia as well…

  19. #TBT: A portrait of the sports blogger as a little kid

    thumbnail.TerryCatledge

    Most people remember the 1985-86 Sixers for names like Dr. J, Moses Malone, Sir Charles Barkley, Andrew Toney, Mo Cheeks, Bobby Jones, etc. The team was still stacked with incredible talent. But not many remember the rookie sensation that was Terry Catledge. I do. Why do I? Because it wasn’t Moses or Mo or even…

  20. Jon Stewart made a cheesesteak joke and it wasn’t awful

    Feb 21, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    Image (2) phanaticobamadailyshow2.jpg for post 485594

    Jon Stewart made the decision to tread on the rarely successful land of cheesesteak jokes on Thursday night’s edition of The Daily Show. It was in a segment about Hot Pockets being recalled and referenced a croissant cheesesteak offered by the world’s leading meat pocket maker. The croissant angle led him to the obvious Geno’s…

  21. VIDEO: Most of the Flyers are pulling for Canada today so [boo] them

    We can all go back to cheering for the Orange and Black next week, but for today, know that the majority of the guys you pull for on the ice all season long will be rooting for Canada to crush your beloved Americans over in Russia. But Hal Gil’? THAT DUDE IS ONE HELLUVA HOCKEY…

  22. You gotta see the flashy kicks Nerlens Noel was rocking at TU-UConn last night

    Feb 21, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Nerlens at Temple-UConn (2 of 2)

    Now that Sam Hinkie went and traded Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner, the 27 games left on the Sixers’ slate this season are going to be brutal. Not that they weren’t going to be brutal before, but even more so now without two of their old starters. One of the lone aspects of the stretch…

  23. The Clippers’ plane had to stop to let Byron Mullens off yesterday after he got traded

    Feb 21, 2014, 7:07 AM EDT

    Winter Weather

    The NBA trade deadline is a pretty exciting day for fans hoping their team could make the big move at any moment that could right the Brett Brown ship with eight holes in it. But it’s obviously not all that fun for those who actually play in the league whose place of residence and work…

    We’ve talked about Scott Hartnell’s children’s book on numerous occasions in the past but did you know former Flyers goalie and brilliant Philly.com contributor / love doctor Bernie Parent also has a children’s book? Well, he doesn’t really, but the folks over at WMMR’s Preston and Steve show thought it’d be a good idea to…
