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

    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…

  2. Mini Martelli more loyal to grandfather’s Hawks than dad’s Hens

    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…

    The March 17th game down in Clearwater, Florida is typically a rather festive affair with fans from the Delaware Valley flocking to BrightHouse Field to wear their best wrong-colored Phillies shirts and celebrate the fact that someone in their family tree once lived across the ocean in Ireland. I was down there one year and…

  4. New FiveThirtyEight website puts pretty decent probability behind big Nova tournament run

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Nate Silver’s much hyped FiveThirtyEight.com debuted today following in the Grantland footsteps over at ESPN and they came right out of the gate crunching some interesting numbers in an attempt to predict the NCAA basketball tournament set to tip off this week. The methodology used is all pretty interesting stuff, combining a number of existing…

  5. Sam Hinkie even drove Evan Turner to airport after trade

    Not much new on the Sixers front this weekend. Not only did they lose a pair of games at the Wells Fargo Center but now even their sneakers are falling apart. Their losing streak now sits at 20 games which ties the franchise record. Nothing funny about that. One funny anecdote from over the weekend…

  6. Six great local beers for your Philadelphia Union season opener tailgate

    cultivator

    For many Philly sports fans, few things compare to taking an afternoon off from work and heading down South Broad for the Phillies’ home opener. No one needs any reminders that winter can be brutal here, and one weekday afternoon, even when it happens to be chilly and rainy, is still the mile marker where…

  7. Sir Charles nearly falls asleep on TV and he wasn’t even watching the Sixers

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    charles.barkley.sleep

    (Or playing on the Sixers) More proof that Charles Barkley is just like the rest of us. There was a pretty funny segment on TNT’s Inside the NBA on Thursday night when the cameras caught Chuck’s eyelids getting real heavy. He kept it together and didn’t actually fall asleep, but that certainly didn’t stop Kenny,…

  8. Video: Eagles new special teamer seems crazy enough to be awesome special teamer

    Bryan Braman, Pat McAfee

    The Eagles introduced a couple of their new acquisitions today over at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. Among them was linebacker Bryan Braman who also happens to be dubbed one of those special teams… “specialists.” He was asked about the mentality needed in a special teams role. His answer was so matter of fact…

  9. Watch Jimmy Rollins talk for nine minutes about Sandberg benching and apparent relationship strain

    Mar 13, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins

    “I don’t know, there’s no fire that needs to be lit though.” That’s how Jimmy Rollins responded when asked if the strange past few days is a way of Ryne Sandberg trying to light a fire under his shortstop. Jimmy has been benched the past few days and there’s no real clear reason as to…

  10. The Sixers lost obviously but DAMN if Tony Wroten didn’t break some ankles [VIDEO]

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:55 AM EDT

    tony.wroten

    The Sixers put another notch in the loss column on Wednesday night when they fell 115-98 to the Kings. That makes it, let me check… one, two, three, four… eighteen straight losses for your 76ers. They can tie the franchise longest losing streak of 20 on Saturday night against Memphis if they fall on Friday…

  11. Photo: Here’s what appears to be a shirtless Jason Kelce ice fishing on a lake

    kelce

    And that would put the count of shirtless photos on his Instagram at four out of the last eight. According to this photo, he’s up in Montana ice fishing with the boys. “The boys” being Riley Cooper and Colt Anderson. Looks like they got dinner too. This one from nine months ago looks a bit…

    1999 Victory #301 Ogea

    I’m bald. I started losing my hair while I was in high school, and by the time I was a junior in college, I came up with the ‘brilliant’ idea to never get my haircut again. If I never got another haircut, I thought. I will always have hair. Which is fine in theory, but…

  13. Cole Hamels essentially started his spring training today but feels ‘really good’

    Mar 12, 2014, 11:25 AM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 - Cole Hamels

    The good news about Cole Hamels’ bullpen session today is that he said he felt “really good” after he was finished this morning as opposed to the last time out when he said 30 or so pitches felt like a thousand. So Hamels is back to work but he still remains noncommittal about pitching for…

  14. Nerlens Noel played 4-on-4 today and can jump way quicker than you

    Mar 11, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    nerlens.noel

    We’ve heard about Nerlens Noel working on his shot with Brett Brown at practice and we’ve read the mysterious 4-4-14 tweet, but today we got some actual reporting on the Sixers rookie participating in a four-on-four practice. All signs point to impressive. Dei Lynam has the full story which includes a report on Noel’s game…

  15. One national writer thinks Eagles make most sense for Darrelle Revis

    Mar 11, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT

    revis

    One of the more surprising pieces of NFL news on Monday was word that the Tampa Bay Bucs would likely be parting ways with Darrelle Revis. Given that Revis is a high profile name that all football fans have heard of, the next step was to obviously wonder if Your Favorite Team would be interested…

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

    Mar 10, 2014, 11:44 PM EDT

    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…

  17. 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…

  18. Video proof that Wayne Simmonds can dunk a basketball

    Mar 10, 2014, 10:19 AM EDT

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

    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.…

  25. 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…
