  1. 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…

  2. There’s a Ruben Amaro joke somewhere in here

    Jan 21, 2014, 4:29 PM EDT

    Winter Weather

    It’s nasty weather out there in Philadelphia today. I’d stay inside until tomorrow if I were you. Unless you’re within a two minute or so walk of the closest corner bar. That sounds like a pretty decent idea as well. They may have milk and bread. Here are some pretty photos of the snowy conditions…

  3. Snow Trumps Hurricanes: Tonight’s Flyers game has been postponed

    Jan 21, 2014, 3:26 PM EDT


    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter announced today that the city has declared a snow emergency as of 4:00 pm due to the heavy snow and freezing temperatures hitting the area. Word from the Flyers beat writers earlier in the day was that the Carolina Hurricanes were hoping to avoid a cancellation of tonight’s contest in South…

  4. Bobby Abreu signs back with Phillies

    Earlier in the day it was reported that the Phillies were “sniffing around” on Bobby Abreu as a left-handed bat off the bench. Well Ruben Amaro Jr. must have liked what El Comedulce was cooking down in Venezuela because CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman just reported that the two sides have agreed to a minor league deal…

  5. Phillies reportedly ‘sniffing around’ on potential Bobby Abreu reunion

    Image (1) rowandabreu.jpg for post 486841

    I don’t know if there are any jokes left about the Phillies adding older players. We’ll just pass this report along: according to CSN’s Jim Salisbury, the Phillies are “sniffing around” on former Phillies outfielder Bobby Abreu to potentially fill a need for a lefty bat off the bench. Abreu has been working hard in…

    NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-La Salle Practice

    You may know Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert best for his use of  an awful font on the his team’s website when LeBron James decides to jump ship and head to the Miami Heat. Or perhaps you know him best for his son, that kid with the bowties. Here’s another thing worth remembering him for:…

  7. Quotable: ‘Kobe who?’ Swaggy P currently in full effect in Hollywood

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:19 AM EDT


    Nick Young never played on a particularly meaningful team in Philadelphia. But in his short time here, he did find a way to the hearts of Sixers’ fans in a way that only Swaggy P could — by shooting, shooting, and then shooting some more. And then probably shooting even more while falling out of…

  8. Watch the entire 1980 Phillies Championship Parade in all its 80′s glory

    Jan 20, 2014, 4:25 PM EDT

    1980 Phillies Parade - HK

    I stumbled upon a pretty rare YouTube gem this afternoon which is the entire broadcast of the 1980 Phillies Championship Parade on PHL17. Some of you old heads may remember this day rather well, but many of you probably weren’t even born yet when the Phillies first took their first float ride down Broad Street.…

  9. How amazing would a Richard Sherman vs. DJacc NFC Championship next year be?

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT


    My only hope: Richard Sherman on DeSean Jackson for the entirety of next year’s NFC Championship Game. — The700Level (@The700Level) January 20, 2014 Count me among the “I found Richard Sherman’s postgame rant to be wildly entertaining if not a bit ridiculous” portion of the human race. But I don’t know about this Michael Crabtree…

  10. Vernon Wells rumors are now a thing in Philadelphia

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:09 AM EDT


    You know things in the world of Phillies fandom are not their best when an article about a potential free agent signing has to explicitly state “it wouldn’t be a train wreck” and that rumored player has been “epically bad in recent years.” As if all of the moves Ruben Amaro Jr. makes these days…

  11. Brett Brown uses Skype, basically summarizes entire Sixers’ rebuilding philosophy perfectly

    Jan 17, 2014, 2:41 PM EDT

    I watched this TrueHoop video where ESPN’s Henry Abbott talks with Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach Brett Brown and the first thing that jumps out at me is that Brett Brown uses Skype. This just seems fascinating to me. Imagine a thoughtful Skype interview with another Philly coach like Charlie Manuel or Craig Berube. (Update: apparently…

  12. LeBron James says Sixers have a “good one” in Michael Carter-Williams

    Jan 17, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams, LeBron James

    Michael Carter-Williams’ NBA debut was one Sixers fans won’t soon forget. LeBron James and the Miami Heat probably haven’t forgotten it either. MCW dazzled us in his first game as a Sixer with 22 points, 12 assists and 9 steals. And he did it while leading his team to victory over the defending NBA champs…

  13. Video: Flyers Michael Raffl gets stoned on ridiculous open net save of the season candidate

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    Nashville Predators goalie Carter Hutton makes a diving save on an open net shot by Philadelphia Flyers' Michael Raffl, right, in the second period of an NHL hockey game, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, in Philadelphia. (AP Photo/Tom Mihalek)

    The Flyers ended up losing to the Nashville Predators in extra shootout goals. That always sucks. Especially when it looked like B. Schenn or Cooter may have iced it for you. Alas, they come away with one point. It was pretty damn entertaining game by all accounts however and those who tuned in witnessed one…

  14. Important Things: The mini William Penn statue will jump from one Comcast tower to the other

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT


    Remember back when the existing Comcast tower was going up back in 2007 or so and we all made a big deal about the little William Penn statue that some construction workers placed at the very top of it in an attempt to break the nonexistent “Curse of Billy Penn”? The “curse” that supposedly inflicted…

  15. Union select goalie with No. 1 pick, who says Philly is ‘the place for cheesesteaks or something’

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:15 PM EDT


    When you trade up and take the consensus best player in the draft, it’s hard not to call it a successful day. Whether that player turns into a top notch pro talent is another story. Hi, Mr. Bennett! The Philadelphia Union traded up in today’s MLS SuperDraft to select goalkeeper from the University of Connecticut…

  16. Don’t forget: Flyers game watch party and The700Level meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar one week from today

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT


    We’re exactly one week away from our Flyers game watch party at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar which will go down next Thursday, January 23rd when the Flyers take on the Blue Jackets on the road. We’ve got a pretty great list of you who’ve already RSVPd to come out and enjoy a few cold ones…

  17. Spotted: A giant TV showing Eagles football in new giant Comcast skyscraper

    Jan 16, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT


    It’s not everyday that news hits of the tallest building ever in your city is going to be built. That’s what happened yesterday when Comcast announced plans for the tallest building in the United States outside of New York in Chicago, which they’re calling the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center. Other than drastically altering the…

  18. Thad on his game winning three: ‘thought I was going to make it before I even got the ball’

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Thaddeus Young , Kemba Walker

    Beating the Charlotte Bobcats on your home court may not be the most exciting thing in the world but Thad Young hitting a three pointer in the final seconds to help secure the win certainly provided some great drama. Thad got a great look and took the shot with confidence and nailed it. His quotes…

  19. Cartoon: Charlie Manuel and Chris Wheeler fight over who gets the best role in Phillies organization

    Jan 15, 2014, 3:35 PM EDT


    Charlie Manuel has some competition for his new job with the #Phillies: — Rob Tornoe (@RobTornoe) January 15, 2014 Both Charlie Manuel and Chris Wheeler will be in new roles with the Phillie for the 2014 season. In what capacity the pair will serve the organization is a bit unclear, but Philadelphia Inquirer cartoonist…

  20. Reports: Charlie Manuel to rejoin Phillies as senior adviser to Ruben

    Charlie Manuel, Ruben Amaro, Jr.

    But will he bring his lunch to Citizens Bank Park come April in a Wawa bag? According to reports by 97.5 the Fanatic’s Brian Startare and CSNPhilly’s Jim Salisbury, Charlie Manuel has agreed to return to the Phillies organization in a senior adviser role to the General Manager. When Manuel was let go back in…

It will be the first appearance in the game for both players. Mathis took the honor…

  22. Dope Timelapse: Kate Smith sings under South Philly skies

    Jan 14, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT


    Our video man Tom at CSN is always playing with his camera equipment toys down at the South Philadelphia sports complex and got a great time lapse of the famous Kate Smith statue last night which now sits outside of Xfinity Live. The Wells Fargo Center and Lincoln Financial Field in the background under some…

  23. Video: Drexel student hits half court shot to win year supply of hoagies

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT


    This Drexel student hit a half court shot over the weekend which won him a year supply of free hoagies from Jimmy John’s. That’s probably worth its weight in gold to a college kid. I can’t speak for Jimmy John’s personally as I don’t believe I’ve ever had a meal there. Where does it fall…

  24. The Phillies have interest in Roy Halladay

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:21 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Not as a pitcher obviously. He retired, remember. But the Phillies do apparently have interest in Roy Halladay as an instructor of some sort. Somewhat hidden in a note by Jim Salisbury about whether or not Charlie Manuel will return to the Philadelphia Phillies in a coaching role this coming season is a quick bit…

  25. The Sixers unveiled a mascot race over the weekend featuring Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross, and a cracked bell

    Jan 13, 2014, 6:46 PM EDT


    The sports world is in an uproar over the Chicago Cubs unveiling a mascot on Monday known as Clark the Cub. But they weren’t the only major sports franchise to introduce a ridiculous mascot of sorts this week. The Philadelphia 76ers followed in the great tradition of racing things such as encased meats in tube…
