  1. Area woman eats more food than everyone else, declared champion

    Jan 31, 2014, 9:40 AM EDT


    You may remember Molly Schuyler from that ridiculous YouTube video where she ate a 72 ounce steak in around three minutes. Today, she shattered the Wing Bowl wing eating record previously held by Takero Kobayashi. Schuyler finished the day by eating 363 wings. Kobayashi’s mark was 337. The Omaha, Nebraska native said she discovered her…

  2. Quotable: Sean McDermott wants a Philly-tough defense in Carolina

    Jan 30, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT


    Sean McDermott’s time as Eagles defensive coordinator was short lived under Andy Reid. It’s safe to say he was one of many scapegoats during the fall of the once mighty Reid era. But McDermott’s career bounced back in a big way since departing Philadelphia and he’s found great success working for the Carolina Panthers. In…

  3. David Stern starts Letterman Top 10 List with a Dr. J joke

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:26 AM EDT


    David Stern is leaving the post he’s held at the top of the NBA for 30 years but he’s going to have some fun before he makes it official. Last night he stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to read a Top Ten List about some of the many, many things he’s learned…

  4. Gosh: Nick Foles does his Napoleon Dynamite impersonation on Dan Patrick Show

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:06 AM EDT


    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show this morning and talked plenty about his career as a football player. But it was his super quick impersonation of Napoleon Dynamite that sticks out from the 8+ minute interview. Foles talked briefly about meeting Dan Marino, his love for Mike Vick,…

  5. Chase Utley bobblehead giveaway at least gets his soul patch right

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT


    The Reading Fightins will be giving away a Chase Utley bobblehead on their opening night on April 3rd to the first 3,000 adults. If adults love anything, it’s Chase Utley. Tickets go on sale tomorrow. Now, getting a bobblehead to look like the actual person it’s made to represent is often challenging. The Utley one…

  6. Classic rivalry of two storied teams picks up tonight as Sixers head to Boston

    The timeless rivalry between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics is renewed this evening in a matchup for the ages. Well, not exactly. The Sixers are 14-31 on the season while the Celtics are 15-32. But that doesn’t take anything away from the rivalry, says head coach Brett Brown. Right. From Sixers’ television reporter…

  7. What was DeSean Jackson doing at Super Bowl media day? Working for 106 & Park of course.

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:14 AM EDT


    Yesterday, we asked “why?” Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was at Super Bowl Media Day up in New Jersey. Today, we got the answer. Jackson was mingling at the media day circus yesterday as a correspondent for BET’s show “106 & Park.” “I’m actually working. I’m getting some checks,” is how DeSean described it. DeSean’s…

  8. Watch Jason Kelce and his beard train for Wing Bowl

    Jan 29, 2014, 10:20 AM EDT


    Free chicken wings. That apparently was reason enough for Eagles lineman Jason Kelce to train for this year’s Wing Bowl which will take place on Friday in South Philadelphia. Kelce held his own media day of sorts on Tuesday at the Eagles practice facility as he readied himself for the toughest competition of his life.…

  9. Why?

    Jan 28, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT


    Lil Terrio making the rounds. #oohkillem RT @cgriffin415: DeSean Jackson has a new, shorter friend at #SBMediaDay — NBC Sports (@NBCSports) January 28, 2014

  10. This is what an almost insane posterization dunk over Evan Turner looks like

    Jan 28, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    usaevanturner_1 (1)

    Gerald Green’s dunking prowess is well documented. He put some of that panache on display last night in the Suns relatively easy win over the Sixers in South Philadelphia. Green was red hot all night. He finished 10-12 from the floor and led all scorers with 30 points. Even his misses were wildly entertaining. Case…

  11. Quotable: Ruben Amaro Jr. says Phillies haven’t necessarily abandoned analytics, okay.

    Jan 27, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Image (1) rubenamarojr.png for post 485464

    ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick has a nice recap of the Philadelphia Phillies odd offseason. The moves they didn’t make, like trading Jonathan Papelbon or Dom Brown. The moves they did make, like Marlon Byrd, Chooch, Roberto Hernandez, and Bobby Abreu. It points out their obvious aging issues and also notes the organization being prisoners to their…

  12. Shady, Trent, Kelce, DeMeco, and Lane all star in latest bad lip reading the NFL video

    Jan 24, 2014, 12:02 PM EDT


    Shady McCoy sounds like a bird. Trent Cole looks possessed. Mychal Kendricks sounds like he’s talking to Rihanna. And Jason Kelce has a beard. That’s all in the latest “A Bad Lip Reading of the NFL” video you can watch above. Perhaps you remember the initial installment which featured Adrian Peterson and orange peanuts. [Fox]

  13. Steve Mason’s new goalie mask features current Flyers players as zombies [UPDATED w/ video]

    Jan 24, 2014, 11:12 AM EDT


    Somebody can’t wait until Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday nights. According to the Flyers’ Instagram account, goalie Steve Mason has a hot new mask to go along with his new multimillion dollar contract. It’s save to say Mase is something of a zombie fan as the new mask features undead Flyers players Claude…

  14. Kids reenact Richard Sherman’s postgame interview with Erin Andrews

    Jan 24, 2014, 10:35 AM EDT


    It’s Friday. We had something of a late night, maybe you heard. So enjoy this video of a bunch of little kids reenacting the instant classic interview between Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman and Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews. This little kid is pretty cool too.

  15. DeSean Jackson is enjoying life by the ocean

    Jan 24, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT


    I mean, how much fun does this guy look like he’s having in Hawaii. Who cares about being a low pick in the meaningless Pro Bowl draft selection process? Does it look like DJacc minds? I don’t think so. Lyfe is good for the Cali boy. He’s got a nice CubAn cigar and he’s frolicking…

  16. You know, Ruben Amaro isn’t exactly wrong about Bobby Abreu

    Jan 23, 2014, 3:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) bobby_abreu_cq.jpg for post 489113

    You know, Ruben Amaro Jr. isn’t exactly wrong about the Bobby Abreu signing. It is virtually a “no risk” situation where the team doesn’t have to add him to the roster out of spring training. He has been playing quite well in Venezuela. And Abreu could fill the left-handed bat off the bench need. That…

  17. Nick Foles was chosen second-to-last in the Pro Bowl ‘draft’

    Jan 23, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT


    Thank goodness for Alex Smith! According to ESPN’s Phil Sheridan, the draft style format that is new to this year’s Pro Bowl did not go so well. Safe to say he was not a fan of the novelty act. Shady McCoy was drafted with the fourth pick overall today but DeSean Jackson and Nick Foles…

  18. Billy Joel to play Citizens Bank Park on August 2nd

    Jan 23, 2014, 11:08 AM EDT

    Billy Joel

    Billy Joel was officially announced as this summer’s concert act at Citizens Bank Park. He previously played CBP on a double bill with the great Elton John. Tickets for the August second show go on sale next Friday, January 31. From the official announcement: Live Nation has announced today that Billy Joel will perform at…

  19. Video: Do not attempt to posterize the Sixers, it will not end well

    Jan 23, 2014, 10:33 AM EDT


    The Sixers took down the Knicks up in New York by a final of 110-106 on Wednesday night (much more on the win and Evan Turner’s impressive night here) and Andrea Bargnani thought he was going to treat Thad Young and Elliot Williams like props in the All-Star weekend dunk contest. Not so fast. The…

  20. Ex-Phillies Marlon Anderson and Ricky Ledee have some fun at Ruben Amaro’s expense

    Jan 22, 2014, 3:31 PM EDT


    It looks like Phillies’ fans aren’t the only ones wondering which former Phillies outfielder could be the next to sign a contract with the team. After adding Marlon Byrd and now Bobby Abreu, former Phillies Ricky Ledee and Marlon Anderson were wondering if they would be the next ones to get the call from RAJ.…

  21. Brett Brown on Grantland: He loves that Philly is a cold and angry city

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT


    The Sixers haven’t been putting a ton of ‘W’s in the win column as of late, but head coach Brett Brown has been winning fans over with his fantastic interviews. Last week it was a video chat he did with Henry Abbott of TrueHoop and today it’s a nice Q&A he had with Grantland’s Zach…

  22. Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow: You’re drinking with us at Smith’s tomorrow

    Jan 22, 2014, 1:36 PM EDT


    By the time Thursday night rolls around you’re probably going to have cabin fever like whoa and want to get out of your cramped apartment. What better way to do that than to join us at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar right in Rittenhouse in Center City Philadelphia. Join fellow readers, writers, and stalkers while…

  23. Roy Halladay will be with the Phillies in Clearwater as guest instructor

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:51 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    We mentioned the Phillies interest in Roy Halladay in a potential instructing role a couple of weeks ago. Today, the team announced that Halladay will in fact be a guest instructor down in Clearwater this spring, joining a handful of other former Phils. Halladay was known for his impressive work ethic almost as much as…

  24. Even Tony Soprano couldn’t persuade LeBron James to join the Knicks

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    Hawks Knicks Basketball

    With the Sixers up in New York this evening to take on the Knicks, the timing of this rather interesting article in the Times about how the staff at Madison Square Garden handles all of the celebrity seating requests is great. They use a super spreadsheet with custom algorithms. The piece tells of Suite 200…

  25. Sledding down the ‘Rocky steps’ looks quite fun, rather dangerous

    Jan 22, 2014, 7:36 AM EDT


    The nice thing about being young is you don’t really think to yourself, “hey, I could totally slip and bash my head onto these concrete steps. That probably wouldn’t feel real great.” Instead, you just hop on a Tupperware container, race down the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps, and enjoy the ride. Most accounts have…
