    Freebie: Wil Nieves While Ruben Amaro Jr. may not believe it, the children are our future. So we’ll give a pass to the youngsters who drew these pictures of the Phillies that were used on the jumbotron at the first Sunday game at Citizens Bank Park of the season. They are rather fascinating, however. The…

    Pretty good weekend for your Fightin’ Phils over at Citizens Bank Park as they helped alleviate the pain of an opening series sweep at the hands of the Brewers by going out and winning three straight of their own over the Miami Marlins. And while the Marlins may have been pushovers in the past, they’ve…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ postseason destiny was sealed over the (gorgeous) weekend. A feisty 4-3 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday meant the orange and black clinched third place in the Metropolitan Division and, as you likely have heard, the right to meet the New York Rangers in the first round of the Stanley…

  5. J-Roll tells fan to ‘shut the F up’ by hitting walkoff homer in extras

    Not sure exactly what the conversation between a heckling fan and Jimmy Rollins was on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park but the words directed at J-Roll clearly paid dividends as the Phillies got a walkoff homer out of their shortstop in extras. Jimmy was asked about the heckling after the game and tried to…

  6. Movie Review: 5 things that bugged me about Draft Day

    Most of the reactions I had read beforehand about Draft Day—the new feature film about the NFL draft, a rather mundane event where names are read off of index cards for three straight days—amounted to, “I can’t believe they made this into a movie.” Well, they did, and it’s not bad. Kevin Costner is the…

  7. Quotable: Ryne Sandberg on how the Phillies can stop early slide

    Cliff Lee was not the stopper on Thursday night but he did pitch well enough to give the Phillies a chance. In the end the bats couldn’t capitalize on a couple of opportunities and the bullpen, namely Jeff Manship, faltered once again. The Phillies now sit at 3-6 which puts them alone at the bottom…

  8. Commentary: Jack McInerney is gone but fellow Union original Amobi Okugo shouldn’t have to follow

    You might have heard that the Union traded Jack McInerney last week and you might have read Steve Moore’s analysis of the surprising deal on this site. While I’m not here to argue with Steve’s point that the trade shouldn’t cause Union fans to panic (SERIOUSLY, DON’T PANIC!!!), and while I agree there are a…

    You may have already read about the Evster and my experience at the Frozen Four last night at the Wells Fargo Center earlier this morning. It was a great recap. If you like recaps that are 80% made up, 10% facts, and 10% making fun of me. For instance, the Evster called the second game…

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Fla. from the perspective of two players and one unit that struggled mightily in the third period.   That third period sure was ugly on Thursday night.

    Late Thursday afternoon, Enrico scored two free tickets to the Frozen Four at the Wells Fargo Center. Knowing I’m a huge hockey fan — and have literally never had plans on a weeknight — he asked me to tag along. The following is a minute by minute report of what took place. Pregame: We are…

    NCAA Frozen Four Hockey

    It’s been a good year for college ice hockey in the Keystone State. Penn State kicked off its second NCAA season with a bang by introducing some impressive new facilities, and while the school’s first go-round in the Big Ten was a little rough, the Nittany Lions ended the campaign with wins over Ohio State…
