  1. Video: That FlyersVerizon Wireless Perfect Season Commercial

    Jan 28, 2011, 9:09 PM EDT

    Back on December 3, 2010, we posted a few pics that the Flyers shared of a forthcoming Verizon Wireless commercial that’d feature a handful of the guys all sporting some superstitious ZZ Top beards, touting something about a perfect season.  Well, the commercial has aired, and we have the video below if you haven’t seen…

  2. Photo: Scott Hartnell’s Biker ‘Stache

    Jan 26, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT

    In the Flyers’ game agains the Blackhawks on Sunday, Scott Hartnell had a pretty solid scruff going. The game had us remembering the playoffs, and while Scottie’s beard wasn’t quite to the majesty it reached by the Finals, it was a healthy late-first, early-second covering. Ahead of last night’s game against the Canadiens though, Hartnell…

  3. The700Level’s Interview With Puck Daddy Greg Wyshynski on the State of the Devils

    Jan 14, 2011, 12:59 PM EDT

    Readers of this site will no doubt be familiar with Puck Daddy, Yahoo’s outstanding hockey blog. Greg Wyshynski, Puck Daddy’s editor, has put together a great site that highlights everything going on in the NHL, and we think he does it with just the right amount of objectivity and natural bias. That’s saying something, too,…

  4. Heckling the Marlins Kind of Like Shooting Fish in Barrel

    Sep 18, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

    First, if you haven’t read this already, please do. Then watch this: Poor, poor Marlins. Guess with Delta Force taking care of the Mike Francis situation, this guy was left to his musings. 

  5. Another Angle of the CBP Run, for Good Measure

    May 4, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    This one’s a bit longer, shot from the other side of the field. In it, you can see more of the run leading up to the taser being fired. Spoiler alert: He still gets tased.  There’s also an artist’s rendering of the event. 

  6. Our Interview With MLB.com Phillies Beat Writer Todd Zolecki

    Feb 28, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    In 2003, Todd Zolecki began covering the Phillies for the Philadelphia Inquirer. He has followed the team during some lean years, over their metamorphosis into a contender, and their 2008 World Series run. Now covering the team for MLB.com, Zolecki has also recently published a book on the Phillies, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:…

  7. I was there for the miracle.

    Matt P. recounts his experience at New Meadowlands Stadium the day the Eagles defeated the New York Giants in the Miracle at New Meadowlands.

  8. Ray Emery’s New(er) Mask Pays Homage to Philly Goaltending Greats

    Jan 5, 2010, 12:07 AM EDT

    Flyers goalie Ray Emery may be nearing a return to the crease, ahead of the original timetable after undergoing abdominal surgery. And, when he does return, he’ll be sporting a newly painted mask.  We gave him props for his first mask as a Flyer, which paid homage to the great boxers of Philadelphia—past, present, and…

  9. Sergei Bobrovsky’s New Mask: Hope You All Like Top Gun References!

    Dec 2, 2009, 12:55 PM EDT

    Our latest edition of NHL Goalie Mask Porn (we should really make a tag for that) features the new face cage of Flyers rookie Sergei Bobrovsky. It took a few looks before I decided that this is actually a pretty interesting mask with national, cultural, and artistic significance. One side is adorned with iconic Philly…

  10. The Latest Phillies Print From Sports Propaganda…

    Aug 24, 2009, 9:55 PM EDT

    Thought you might be interested to see Chris Speakman’s latest Phillies print at Sports Propaganda.    Any guesses as to the next retired number? I saw 20 and 32 go up on the wall, but considering the “1883″ it’s clearly an elite honor. 

  11. Quotable: Billy Beane on Joe Blanton

    Feb 25, 2009, 10:21 AM EDT

    Hol-ee Kalas, I think I might jump out of my face. The WFC Phillies are going to play some baseball today. It’ll  be the most meaningful meaningless game we’ve ever heard (tune in: 1PM on WPHT 1210 AM or WUBA 1480 AM), with Jamie Moyer scheduled to get the “start” and Hammerin’ Joe Blanton taking…

  12. Pretty Much the Best John Kruk Moment. Ever.

    Jan 30, 2008, 9:59 PM EDT

    Wood paneling, cheerleaders and mascots, Mets fans throwing batteries, explorations with sports heroes, a random vampire involved in real estate, severed nipples, peepshows, a vocal John Bonham solo “from the live album,” and a superior, billowing mullet can only mean one thing: John Kruk has joined the cast of Aqua Teen Hunger Force in an…
