    If Charlie Manuel was upset at the timing of his firing in the middle of the 2013 season, it sure sounds like he’s gotten over it. Manuel was a guest on Philly Sports Talk on CSN on Tuesday evening and chatted with Michael Barkann, Jim Salisbury, and Rich Hoffmann. “I was a little surprised,” Manuel…

    .@NBCPhiladelphia #nbc10ice Ice at the Wells Fargo center by @CSNPhilly — Tom Finer (@tomfiner) February 5, 2014 It is not a pleasant day in Philadelphia. It’s cold. It’s wet. And now it’s getting icy. I suppose you could say it’s a perfect day for the Sixers to take on the Boston Celtics as…

  4. Mike Vick appears a bit confused

    Feb 3, 2014, 7:37 PM EDT


    No disrespect to Doug Baldwin but I think Russell Wilson should have got the MVP of last nights game. — Mike Vick (@MikeVick) February 3, 2014 Mike Vick sent the following tweet out on Monday evening. Not sure why Doug Baldwin would feel disrespected. Malcolm Smith might though. Feb 3, 2014; Orlando, FL, USA; Super…

  5. ESPN writer picks Phillies as second-worst team in all of baseball

    Feb 3, 2014, 3:54 PM EDT

    Dom Brown and Ryan Howard celebrate another Dom Bomb

    Now that the exciting Super Bowl is over and we’re finally done with snow this winter it’s time to get pumped for pitchers and catchers reporting to sunny Clearwater, Florida in just a few days. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast. The Super Bowl sucked. It’s still freakin’ snowing. And one ESPN analyst ranks the…

  6. Angelo Cataldi almost died for this Cheesesteak Shuffle spoof

    Feb 3, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT


    Cheesesteaks are good for pretty much one thing and one thing only: eating them. Using them for B roll footage on sports television broadcasts or as a theme for some Super Bowl Commercial is a bad idea nine times out of ten. So it shouldn’t surprise you that we here at hated Geico’s “Cheesesteak…

  7. Chip Kelly compared Russell Wilson to Bruno Mars last night

    Feb 3, 2014, 11:15 AM EDT


    You can call him a “game manager” if you want but now you have to call him a Super Bowl Champion. Russell Wilson did everything he needed to do to lead the Seattle Seahawks to an impressive victory over the Denver Broncos last night. Those lengths may have included a little superstition about not cutting…

  8. Double Manningface montage finishes off miserable Super Bowl

    Feb 2, 2014, 9:58 PM EDT


    You can call the Seattle Seahawks dominating victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 48 a truly impressive performance from the best team in the game. But it’s hard to call a 43-8 victory an entertaining one. So, in another year when our team failed to win the Lombardi trophy, it’s nice to go…

  9. Dr. J makes cameo in Chrysler Super Bowl commercial featuring Bob Dylan praising ‘originals’

    Feb 2, 2014, 9:14 PM EDT


    What do Dr. J and Bob Dylan have in common? Aside from both being total badass trail blazers? They were both in a commercial for a Chrysler that aired during the second half of the 2014 Super Bowl. The spot praised America as a country of originals and centered around Dylan with Julius Erving being…

  10. Geico going for the “commercial so awful that everybody will talk about it” angle with the Cheesesteak Shuffle lizard spot.

    Feb 2, 2014, 8:29 PM EDT


    Geico aired a commercial during half time of the Super Bowl on Sunday night featuring that little lizard sitting at 9th and Passyunk Streets in South Philadelphia in front of Pat’s and Geno’s. Then he started talking about the “Cheeseteak Shuffle.” It was not good. But now we’re talking about it, so I suppose it…

  11. 34 Wing Bowl photos that will restore your faith in protein and cellulite

    Jan 31, 2014, 1:21 PM EDT


    Thousands of chicken wings were eaten, countless beers consumed — at least two by legendary Phillie Matt Stairs — and hundreds of breasts were exposed to both the chilly weather and brutish banter. That, of course, means the 22nd annual Wing Bowl took place this morning down at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia.…

  12. Photo Gallery: Wing Bowl 22

    Jan 31, 2014, 1:11 PM EDT


    Another Wing Bowl put on by the folks of 94 WIP is in the books. The 22nd annual installment saw a record-shattering performance from new champion Molly Schuyler, a disappointing effort from Eagles lineman Jason Kelce, and a great cameo from Mr. Moon Shot himself, Matt Stairs. CSNPhilly photographer Aaron Talasnik was there to capture some…

  13. Video: Matt Stairs pounded beers at Wing Bowl 22 this morning

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT


    Matt Stairs may have just made himself the favorite to be the next Philadelphia Phillies television analyst — among the beer-for-breakfast crowd, at least. [PHOTO GALLERY: Wing Bowl 22] The former slugger and playoff legend made an appearance at the Wing Bowl this morning at the Wells Fargo Center. He made his presence known by…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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,…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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.…

  23. 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…

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

    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…

  25. 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]
