    Apr 8, 2014, 2:28 PM EDT

    Looking, ummm, good there, Chase...

    Ah, the familiar sights of Citizens Bank Park. The Mike Schmidt statue outside the third base gate. The Robin Roberts statue outside the first base gate. The Ryan Howard statue at first base. Chase Utley at second base. Baseball doesn’t get much better than when Utley is playing in the dirt. Unfortunately for fans making…

    Being from the Galapagos Islands, the Phillie Phanatic is no stranger to evolution. But even the Phanatic isn’t always happy with the shade of green his furry coat of feathers comes in naturally. So in preparation of opening day, he may get some highlighting work done to it to give it that shiny texture that…

    NCAA Basketball: Battle4Atlantis-Kansas vs Wake Forest

    Obviously, the fate of the pesky ping pong balls on lottery night will have huge implications in Philadelphia, so while the season will mercifully end in a couple of weeks, the real stressful situation to determine the next direction of the franchise is right around the corner. The folks over at Liberty Ballers released their…

    Mondays are a downer. Yesterday more so than usual given that our promise of opening day baseball in Philadelphia was taken from us and replaced with a dreary, wet, and boring day. But the baseball gods will reward our patience today with the promise of 60+ degrees and sunshine come first pitch at 4:07 pm…

    Charlie.Villanueva

    Our Friday columnist here at The700Level.com, known to you all as The Evster, has something of a man crush on former UConn Huskie Charlie Villanueva. This is well documented. See: 8 reasons why the Sixers should, no MUST, trade for Charlie Villanueva. So with Kevin Ollie and the Huskies taking down Kentucky in an entertaining…

    Counting down till tip off, who do you have? UConn or KU? — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) April 7, 2014 Never change, Donovan. Never change. Since there’s no Philly sports action this evening, figured most of you would be tuning in to the National Championship game this evening between the Connecticut Huskies and Kentucky Wildcats. While…

  8. Replacing DeSean: The other guys, but mostly, a draft pick

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    Arrelious Benn, Chris Houston

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

    Here’s a pretty awesome video taken from the point of view of the Leap Frogs — the US Navy Parachute Team — as they jump from a plane 6,500 feet up and land smoothly on the bright green grass of Citizens Bank Park’s field. According to the video they’re falling at 120 mph towards earth.…

  10. Hopefully you’re not tailgating outside CBP right now

    phillies.rain

    The Phillies didn’t waste any time in postponing today’s scheduled home opener against the Brewers at 3:05 pm and moving it to Tuesday at 4:05 pm instead due to the weather forecast calling for rain all day long. The fact that they made the call over 24 hours in advance gave fans plenty of time…

    Jay Rosehill, Shawn Thornton

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at the TD Bank Garden on Saturday from the perspective of three players.   3. Jay Rosehill Jay Rosehill makes what I anticipate could be his only lifetime appearance in our 3 Stars recaps. No. 1, he did a very Rosehill thing, tagging Bruins forward Shawn…

  12. DeSean Jackson basically admits to knowing and spending time with gang members but denies affiliation

    DeSean Jackson appeared on Friday night’s SportsCenter in a sit down interview with Stephen A. Smith that clarified a few questions but left us wondering more. I don’t think Smith did a particularly good job with DeSean, but he did get him to admit that he knows gang members and the response given when asked…
