    It’s over. 26 games and exactly two months since the 76ers last experienced the joy of finishing a basketball game with more points than the dudes wearing the other unis, the Sixers are once again winners, triumphing over the Detroit Pistons tonight in front of a very appreciative Wells Fargo Center. The losing streak is…

    A strangely huge crowd of more than 17,000 showed up at Wells Fargo Center Saturday night expecting (hoping?) to see the Sixers set the NBA record for consecutive losses at 27. They forgot that the Detroit Pistons are a total dumpster fire. The Sixers beat the Pistons, 123-98, in an absolute laugher. It was the…

    The Philadelphia 76ers just lost their 26th straight game to tie an NBA record. The last time someone in Philly had that much trouble on a basketball court, he was sent to live with his Auntie and Uncle in Bel-Air. There’s more in the below video. [Jimmy Fallon]

  4. Stop defending DeSean Jackson

    It’s times like this where you have to force yourself to step back and look at a situation objectively, not through green-tinted glasses. The Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, and it is 100 percent Jackson’s fault. Look, I’m not going to attempt to spin Jackson’s release as the Eagles got better on the football field…

    Where to even begin with this? There’s just so much going here. The guys over at Broad Street Hockey had quite the exchange on twitter yesterday with former professional boxing champion Riddick Bowe, who you may remember from such matches as the “Fan Man” fight and his other bouts with Evander Holyfield. They asked Bowe,…

    After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today. — Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) March 28, 2014 What a bizarre story. The Eagles just shocked plenty of football fans across the country by tweeting the news that the team has parted ways with the…

    If you follow me on Twitter, you know it’s been a busy week for me. And since I can’t possibly show you all my wallet photos (do people still carry wallet photos?), I’m going to do the next best thing and post a totally, completely and utterly shameless photo of my 2-day-old daughter Sarah right…

    The Sixers did what they do last night down in Houston and fell to the rockets to earn their 26th loss in a row, tying the All-Time NBA record for losses in a row. Brett Brown spoke about the 26-game losing streak all matter-of-factly following the game, even echoing some of the sentiments Andrew put…

    Here’s a sneak peek into how things work at The 700 Levvy: Every Thursday afternoon, I email Enrico telling him I have NO IDEA what I’m gonna write about for this week’s post and every week he responds by saying “ummmm” and “durrrrrrr” and “I don’t know what you should write about either.” Then, after some lousy ideas are…

    The Sixers go for number 26 tonight. It’s been almost exactly two months since Evan Turner hit that tough runner in Boston to beat the Celtics, 95-94. Since then, the Sixers have played 25 games and have lost each and every one of them. None of the games have gone to overtime. Until that wacky…

    Vatican Pope Family Meeting

    Unless you’re one of those people who love jerseys, maybe. Then you could possibly have more Philly sports jerseys than the Pope now does after Mayor Nutter and his cohorts showered the Pontifex with gifts, most of which were sports jerseys with “Pope Francis” on the back. From Dan McQuade at Philly Mag who suggested…
