Mar 29, 2011, 11:03 AM EDT

Over the next few weeks at The700Level, we’ll be posting poll           matchups as part of our Philly March Madness competition.                      Examine the       cases of the two fine Philadelphia       athletes         below,    and     cast     your  vote at  the bottom as  to        which   you     think should    advance to         the next   round.    And        as always,   feel   free to explain    your     selection          and/or       debate the   choices    in the comments  section.

With the first round completed, we’re presenting our second round    matchups with some YouTube clips we feel to be definitive of the    respective athletes’ greatness during their time in Philly. If you    think there’s another, better video we should have used, we’d love to    hear about that below as well.
