  2. Here’s the heavily bleeped Hooters March Madness commercial that aired last night

    Hooters

    OK, it’s late, but did anyone else just have that bizarre Hooters commercial during the Louisville-Manhattan game? — Steve Moore (@Smoore1117) March 21, 2014 Thursday was a loooong day of hoops watching for many of us. So after sitting on the couch for a solid 12+ hours and surely enjoying an alcoholic beverage or four,…

  3. Watch Comcast’s original report on the Vet demolition 10 years ago today

    Mar 21, 2014, 1:57 PM EDT

    Vet

    I can’t remember where I was the day the Vet came down. All I can recall is that I was out of town and therefore unable to make it down to South Philly to watch the 700 level meet its end. Maybe I was a little disappointed for missing out on the destruction of Veterans…

  4. No D-Jax? No J-Roll? No Problem! @FakeWIPCaller weighs in

    It’s been a week of turmoil for our local teams and a couple of their biggest stars, with DeSean Jackson supposedly about to be traded by the Eagles, and Jimmy Rollins reportedly on the outs with the Phillies, who are asking him to show “leadership.” If you ask me, good riddance to both. First of…

  5. You don’t want to hear what the scouts Jayson Stark talks to have to say about the Phillies

    On one hand it’s Friday and you can always handle bad news a little better on Friday. Plus you’ve got a full day of NCAA hoops to keep you occupied. On the other hand, none of this should come as much of a surprise to you. But Jayson Stark’s latest on your Philadelphia Phillies certainly…

  6. The Evster puts together the all-time most annoying Duke basketball team

    Everyone should love Duke basketball. Obviously we don’t — because Duke players constantly suck their own butts — but we should. They play tough defense. They bomb threes. And they sometimes have a mega-ram-bam ram-jammer who does nothing but ram. (Basically I’m just talking about Mason Plumlee here, but you know what I’m saying.) And…

  7. 3 Stars: Flyers keep up torrid pace with win over Stars

    Wayne Simmonds, Ryan Garbutt

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday from the perspective of three(-ish) players. Steve Mason Yet another solid effort from Mason, stopping 33 of 35 Dallas shots to earn his 29th win of the season. The Philly netminder may not rank among the best as far…

    A tough, tough loss for Phil Martelli and St. Joe’s in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament as the Hawks fell 89-81 in overtime to the UConn Huskies after having the victory within reach during regulation. A botched final possession in the final seconds of the second half didn’t help, and Halil Kanacevic fouling out…

  9. Phillies season ticket numbers down by at least 5,000

    Mar 20, 2014, 6:12 PM EDT

    phillies.fans

    I know at least three different people personally who opted not to renew their partial season ticket plans for the Phillies this season. A couple 17-game plans here and a couple Sunday packages there and it all adds up to roughly 5,000 less season tickets sold than last year. That number is according to the…

  10. It’s time to start talking about Claude Giroux in the MVP conversation

    On Dec. 11, the Philadelphia Flyers were embarrassed by the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, 7-2, in the Windy City and in front of a national television audience. This past Tuesday night, the Flyers held those same Blackhawks in check and eventually won an overtime thriller in South Philly when Claude Giroux sniped a…

  11. Did you know Connor Barwin also played hoops at Cincinnati?

    Connor.Barwin

    Football players suiting up and balling on the hardwood isn’t exactly a new thing. Philadelphia fans are well aware of Donovan McNabb playing for Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orangemen, but did you know that current Eagle’s linebacker Connor Barwin was a pretty decent baller for the Cincinnati Bearcats? With Cincy facing off against Harvard…

    UConn’s Shabazz Napier, the American Athletic Conference’s player of the year, took every conversation I’ve had about Saint Joseph’s for the last four months and worked it into his NCAA press availability on Wednesday: BUFFALO, N.Y. — When UConn’s star guard Shabazz Napier was asked Wednesday about St. Joe’s freshman DeAndre’ Bembry, he didn’t know…
