  1. Watch: The Phillie Phanatic’s dramatic reenactment of what it was like to watch last night’s game

    If you’re unfamiliar, this is a newer addition to the Phanatic’s repertoire where he takes out a couple of harmless little kids dressed as some sort of hot dog in order to let a nice little girl win the race and be glorified forever. Looks pretty painful. Much like watching the Phillies last night. More…

    Go ahead. Take a deep breath and exhale because after a recent, late-season stretch where doubt crept in, the Philadelphia Flyers are heading back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 17th time in the last 19 years after they clinched a spot by virtue of their 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers last night…

  3. The people who REALLY Don’t like Mike Vick are the Jets’ problem now

    I was pretty surprised when Mike Vick first signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest was that the Eagles had a pretty great quarterback in Donovan McNabb at the time. Certainly chief among the others was the potential headache Vick’s baggage could bring along with him seemed like…

  4. So Nerlens Noel wasn’t talking about Captain America being released on 4-4-14, says he increased vertical by 3 inches

    Nerlens Noel can speak. We were reminded of this amazing fact yesterday when the great big hope of the Sixers spoke to the media yesterday for the first time in ages. While his coach Brett Brown wasn’t sure what the ambiguous 4-4-14 tweet was a couple of weeks back and some of us speculated on…

  5. John Oates played this sweet Phillies-themed guitar on Jimmy Fallon

    When it comes to custom-made music instruments made in honor of the best baseball team from Philadelphia, PA, nobody tops John Oates of legendary local rock duo Hall and Oates. Unless you consider DJ Jazzy Jeff’s turntables a rock instrument. Those things are dope too. John Oates was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon earlier…

  6. Maybe don’t boo Ryan Braun tonight

    Opening Day was fun for a couple of innings. Then we got reminded of some baseball realities. The Phils bullpen being one of them. And that some people at baseball games in Philadelphia get really, really drunk. May be a chicken or egg debate there, not sure. But one thing was very clear. Ryan Braun…

  7. Scenes from Opening Day at Citizens Bank Park

    There’s nothing quite like Opening Day at the ballpark, whether it’s a World Series contender or an 0-162 also-ran. It’s just too bad not everybody can be in attendance to take in the festivities. Thanks to Associated Press photographer Chris Szagola, we’re able to bring you some of the visual effects. There’s nothing quite like…

  8. Flyers looking to clinch essentially-clinched playoff spot in Florida

    If the Philadelphia Flyers pick up two points against the sad-sack Florida Panthers on Tuesday night, the orange and black officially clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Anything can happen after the puck drops, but not exactly the unlikeliest of scenarios versus the second-worst team in the NHL. Of course, should the Panthers…

  9. Chase’d from home: no Utley (flu) for Phillies home opener

    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…

  10. Watch: The Phillie Phanatic stars in punny new Comcast SportsNet spots

    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…
