    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 victory over the league-leading St. Louis Blues on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center from the perspective of two players and one whistle-happy referee.

  2. UConn’s Shabazz Napier daggered Villanova last time they met in Philly, ending with ‘that guy Bill Raftery yelling Onions’

    After a wild first two days of the NCAA tournament that featured roughly 45 overtime games, Stephen Freaking Austin leading the parade of 12 seeds to pull of upsets because of a FOUR-POINT PLAY, that white guy on Mercer doing one of the best versions of the Holy-Crap-We-Just-Beat-Duke dance I’ve ever seen and Phil Martelli’s…

  3. Michael Vick’s 10 greatest Eagles moments

    Mar 22, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets on Friday, finally severing his ties to the Philadelphia Eagles organization after five seasons of service. While he ultimately came up short as the franchise quarterback, enduring his share ups and downs, benchings and injuries, there is absolutely no denying he authored a great number of memorable…

  4. MATCHDAY: If Union want to contend, these are the ones they have to win

    Mar 22, 2014, 10:40 AM EDT

    Union players celebrate scoring during the second half against the Portland Timbers in Portland, Ore., Saturday.

    It’s easy to get hyped for a season-opener in front of a raucous crowd, like the Union did in a 1-1 draw in Portland. It’s VERY easy to get amped up for a home-opener against a playoff team on a beautiful day in front of 18,000-plus, like the Union did in a 1-0 win last…

  7. 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,…

  8. 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…

    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…

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

    sandberg

    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…

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

    Mar 21, 2014, 8:22 AM EDT

    paulus_medium

    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…

  12. 3 Stars: Flyers keep up torrid pace with win over Stars

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…
