    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Holy moly. pic.twitter.com/N0qQ8GJiFQ — Dennis Deitch (@DennisDeitch) March 20, 2014 Yes, that appears to be an Amaro shirsey in the wild, spotted down in Florida today at the Phillies game against the Astros by beat writer Dennis Deitch of the Delaware County Daily Times. The only possible explanation I can come up with is he’s…

  7. They’re calling Jayson Werth an ‘idiot’ down in Washington now

    Werth-a-rine

    Philadelphia fans know all to well that Jayson Werth is something of a character. He developed a reputation as a guy who didn’t always want to talk to the media and some painted him as a player who just had a bad “aura” to him. But he was a pretty darn good right fielder who…

  8. The pros and cons to trading DeSean Jackson

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

    desean

    One of the most polarizing athletes in this city, reports of a potential DeSean Jackson trade received a largely negative reaction across the board. Of course, many would be disappointed to see a fan favorite and one of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL shipped out by the Philadelphia Eagles. Even folks who…

    Aside from Claude Giroux and the Flyers going on a nice little hot streak, it seems like it’s been all Jimmy Rollins not leading this and DeSean Jackson me me me me-ing that in the Philly sports talk world these days. So even the most minor bit of positive news out of Clearwater gets us…

    I’m a sucker for a cool YouTube video. I mean, part of my job is to watch videos all day long. So whether you’re promoting your brand of baseball gloves or your school’s baseball team, if the video is well done or even a little interesting, I’ll watch. And so here is a pretty badass…

    Here’s a pretty cool video of some of the folks over at Wilson heading to Clearwater to hook up some of the Phillies with custom gloves. Jonathan Papelbon, Marlon Byrd, Carlos Ruiz and others talk about what they like in a glove and we learn a little bit about some of their superstitions. Apparently some…
