    NBA: Playoffs-Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics

    Spread the word around. If there’s one home game left of note on the Philadelphia 76ers’ home schedule–beyond one that might actually result in the increasingly historically unlikely event of a win–worth noting, it’s this one against the Indiana Pacers. Aside from giving the Sixers a chance to at least get beaten down by a…

  2. Show Me Something: After 4 years, Union have 17 home games to convince masses to pay attention

    Last Saturday night, after the Union’s 1-1 draw with the Portland Timbers, I got a text from a co-worker friend of mine. Now, this friend is a huge soccer-head. He not only has multiple Liverpool jerseys and listens to multiple Liverpool podcasts (and somehow understands the ridiculous “Scouser” accent), he manually keeps stats in an…

  3. Six great local beers for your Philadelphia Union season opener tailgate

    For many Philly sports fans, few things compare to taking an afternoon off from work and heading down South Broad for the Phillies’ home opener. No one needs any reminders that winter can be brutal here, and one weekday afternoon, even when it happens to be chilly and rainy, is still the mile marker where…

  4. Sir Charles nearly falls asleep on TV and he wasn’t even watching the Sixers

    (Or playing on the Sixers) More proof that Charles Barkley is just like the rest of us. There was a pretty funny segment on TNT’s Inside the NBA on Thursday night when the cameras caught Chuck’s eyelids getting real heavy. He kept it together and didn’t actually fall asleep, but that certainly didn’t stop Kenny,…

    When I was around 10 years old, I bumped into former Sixer and all-around terrible basketball player, Bob Thornton, at the Acme on City Line Ave. No seriously, I walked right into him. Like, right into his leg. I was looking for Skittles and he was waiting in line to buy ice cream and a…

  6. Video: Eagles new special teamer seems crazy enough to be awesome special teamer

    The Eagles introduced a couple of their new acquisitions today over at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. Among them was linebacker Bryan Braman who also happens to be dubbed one of those special teams… “specialists.” He was asked about the mentality needed in a special teams role. His answer was so matter of fact…

    “I don’t know, there’s no fire that needs to be lit though.” That’s how Jimmy Rollins responded when asked if the strange past few days is a way of Ryne Sandberg trying to light a fire under his shortstop. Jimmy has been benched the past few days and there’s no real clear reason as to…

    Six months ago, in the midst of the worst Phillies season in over a decade, I decided to take a look at the 2000 Phillies, the last bottom-dwelling Phils squad, for a little perspective. In the midst of a Sixers season that has the chance to make the ’13 Phils look like the ’04 St.…

  9. Sproles trade doesn’t make much sense for Eagles, anybody

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:11 PM EDT

    Darren Sproles

    Well, I hope everyone is happy. The Philadelphia Eagles finally added a coveted, overpaid, aging veteran during this free agency period, sending a fifth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for running back/all-purpose weapon Darren Sproles. This is a swap that would’ve been fresh and exciting maybe two years ago. Now, Sproles is…

    The Sixers put another notch in the loss column on Wednesday night when they fell 115-98 to the Kings. That makes it, let me check… one, two, three, four… eighteen straight losses for your 76ers. They can tie the franchise longest losing streak of 20 on Saturday night against Memphis if they fall on Friday…

    And that would put the count of shirtless photos on his Instagram at four out of the last eight. According to this photo, he’s up in Montana ice fishing with the boys. “The boys” being Riley Cooper and Colt Anderson. Looks like they got dinner too. This one from nine months ago looks a bit…

  12. Yeah, the Union should’ve won, but here’s three things that should leave you encouraged

    The Philadelphia Union were mere seconds away from a stunning road win on opening night against a very popular pick to win the MLS Cup. They didn’t get it. That is disappointing. There are plenty of lessons to be learned. It’s OK to be frustrated. But, let’s not pretend that this game wasn’t as encouraging as…
