    Phillies Spring 2014 - Chooch

    We may have missed this over the winter when it was first reported, but a PBT post today highlighting Bob Brookover’s Inquirer column this morning informed us that Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz received an exemption from MLB that will allow him to take Adderall in 2014. This is notable, of course, because Ruiz received a…

CSN’s Jim Salsbury put his photography skills to good use as well. That guy is multi-talented. Visitor at…

  3. Next key date in Sixers’ rebuilding plan? ‘Early ticket renewal’

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:55 AM EDT

    Sixers.Blueprint

    The Sixers’ organization, by most accounts, is headed in the right direction. In the sense that, they’ve got a pile of something and they’re trying to build something better out of it. You can’t get much worse than just having a pile. Hence, right direction. And the organization is smart enough to even have a…

  4. Young Kevin Grow gets more use out of No. 33 Sixers jersey than Andrew Bynum did, according to Evan Turner

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:34 PM EDT

    Kevin Grow - Sixers04

    You’ve likely heard the tale of local high schooler Kevin Grow who had the amazing opportunity to sign a two-day contract with the Sixers and tag along with the team for a whole bunch of events. The young baller’s run was capped off this evening with a chance to hang with the Sixers’ players in…

  5. Pizza Hut Delivers: West Chester kid gets $10k after original half-court shot debacle

    Feb 18, 2014, 5:25 PM EDT

    pizza

    Fans who aren’t big on following rules were outraged after a West Chester University student was seemingly robbed of the $10,000 owed to him for hitting a half-court shot at a game last week. Turns out, the rules said he had to hit all of the shots in succession, and that meant no big cash…

  6. Chris Bosh of all people says the Phillie Phanatic is scary looking

    The Starters crew over at NBA.com did their uniquely quirky thing at All-Star Game Weekend down in New Orleans and, once again, it did not disappoint. First, they had some fun asking the stars of the big game what kind of smoothies they would make. But more apropos to this website is when they asked…

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    avant

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant took his typically sure hands on the football field and used  them to write for Sports Illustrated about the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation down in Miami. Avant believes Miami’s locker room is not a typical situation but also points out the lack of diversity training in the NFL in…

  9. Photos and video of Cupid’s Undie Run in South Philly

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT

    IMG_1007

    Hundreds of people gathered in South Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon to run around in the cold rain and snow and then drink beer afterwards. And they did it all while only wearing their underwear. Seems totally normal, I know. It was all part of the second annual Cupid’s Undie Run which takes place in cities…

  10. Noted Cowboys’ fan Dom Brown received a personalized Philadelphia Eagles jersey, says he’ll wear it

    Dom.Brown3

    The city of Philadelphia briefly pondered exiling Phillies outfielder Dom Brown after he tweeted a photo of himself at the Linc in a Cowboys jersey during an Eagles game. Alas, most of us just drank another beer and forgot about the whole thing a minute later. Not CSN/NBC’s John Clark, however. Clark is down in…

  12. Shocker: Roy Halladay may sleep in a little now, run less

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:16 AM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 07

    Roy Halladay returning to the Philadelphia Phillies organization as a pitching instructor this spring was a move greeted overwhelmingly positive by fans. Roy’s exactly the kind of guy you want melding the minds and arms of the team’s pitchers of tomorrow. But when word of his return as an instructor first broke, many wondered whether…

    Evan Turner’s Instagram account can drop something of incredibly high quality at any moment. Like when he’s on the crapper at Spencer Hawes’ house for example. The Kid ET posted the above photo of what appears to be toilet paper with President Barack Obama’s face on it. Sixers fans have come to know Spencer’s Republican…

    I don’t know what’s outside your window right now but I’m willing to bet it’s white or gray and has no hint of sunlight whatsoever. So with that, let’s look at some of the first photos to emerge from Spring Training 2014 down in Clearwater, Florida. Philadelphia Phillies baseball is just around the corner. Get…

  16. Even the Utah Jazz mascot was embarassing Sixers fans last night (VIDEO)

    The Sixers lost to the Jazz on Wednesday night out in Utah. Not only were Brett Brown’s bunch handed their season-worst eighth straight loss, but the Jazz’s mascot — cleverly named Bear — even used the opportunity to take a poor Sixers fan hostage and shave his head. Like being a Sixers fan isn’t humiliating…

    DeSean Jackson updated all of his followers on Instagram and Twitter this evening of the “#NewInk” he recently added to his back and/or neck area. I believe the “Jaccpot” lettering had been there for a while and the Los Angeles Angels ‘A’ with wings was added above it. Instagram user Bill Till brings up an…

  18. Andrew Bynum’s reported practice exploits are simply hilarious

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Cleveland Cavaliers

    You’d think a guy making millions of dollars for one season of playing — or in some instances, NOT playing — basketball would have a decent sense of decorum on the hardwood. Alas, most NBA players are not Andrew Bynum. We’ve all heard tales about Bynum not really enjoying basketball, seemingly going through the motions…

    Pitchers and catchers reported just today and we’re already treated to an influx of Phillies news. Cole Hamels will likely not be ready by Opening Day. Ruben Amaro made a splash by signing A.J. Burnett to bolster his staff. And hey, what about that new Cuban guy?!? To be fair, you’ve all probably done it…

  20. Video: The Mo Speights highlight reel you never thought would exist

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:09 AM EDT

    This poor kid was at the game. We feel for you, young lady.

    The Sixers lost by 45 points on Sunday night. They lost by 43 points on Monday night. Some might call that progress. Dei Lynam was out at the game in California so we’ll let her suffer the misery of recapping this one in full, but I think we can all take a moment to enjoy…

    Everyone around the NFL/Internet is reacting to the news yesterday about Michael Sam revealing his truth to the world prior to the NFL Draft in a couple of months. A number of outlets, including SI’s Peter King, wrote that the Eagles are viewed as an organization that would have no qualms drafting him. Below is…

  23. With Flyers on Olympic hiatus and the Sixers being the Sixers… times are hard

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:57 PM EDT

    Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony

    Man, no Flyers for 2+ weeks… awful Sixers… and a ho-hum kick-start to Spring Training for the Phils, looks like I’m cleaning out the DVR for a good stretch here. That was a comment on a post about Blake Griffin doing the Sixers dirty late on Sunday evening, but it raises a good point. Sure,…

    For the second game in a row, Tony Wroten hit a rather impressive 3/4 court shot to end the third quarter. Earlier in the week, Wroten hit a 60 footer (video) in a loss to the Boston Celtics. On Friday night, he did it again, this time banking a 62 footer in in a loss…

  25. Marcus Vick wants to fight George Zimmerman after DMX bout on rocks

    Feb 7, 2014, 6:44 PM EDT

    marcus.vick

    Local “celebrity” boxing promoter Damon Feldman may have jumped the gun on announcing a boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX. That fight appears to be on shaky ground, with no contract actually signed and DMX’s camp doubting it will ever come to fruition. “DMX will release an official statement if and when an agreement…
