  1. 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…

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

    Apr 12, 2014, 1:34 PM EDT

    draft-day-poster

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Watch: Crazy buzzer beater goal that won Gophers spot in championship with less than a second left

    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. For even more of a…

    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…

  8. The NCAA Frozen Four gets underway in Philadelphia

    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…

  9. Report: Eagles made trade offer for Miami Dolphins OLB Dion Jordan

    Dion Jordan

    This time last year, there was rampant speculation as to whether the Philadelphia Eagles would use the fourth overall draft pick on outside linebacker Dion Jordan. The connection was simple: the Birds needed a pass-rusher for their newly installed 3-4 defense, and head coach Chip Kelly knew Jordan better than anyone from their rime together…

  10. Mike Schmidt thinks MLB should use the force, not human umpires, to call balls and strikes

    Michael Jack Schmidt was a guest on 97.5 the Fanatic on Thursday to talk about his new gig calling Sunday Phillies games alongside Tom McCarthy and either Jamie Moyer or Matt Stairs on the television broadcast. He hints that the broadcast may be a little different with some story telling be a welcomed addition. He…

  11. GIF: Ben Revere diving faceplant! And a sweet catch

    Revere.dive.brewers

    Ben Revere’s defense seems to be all over the place. He doesn’t seem to get great reads on balls hit towards him and sometimes he has enough speed to recover and make the play and sometimes he doesn’t. I didn’t think he was getting to this Lyle Overbay ball in the ninth. Still, for a…

  12. Ryan Braun is the new Phillies killer and he may have mocked you last night, Philly fans

    Philadelphia fans are not in any way shape or form fans of Brewers’ slugger Ryan Braun. In fact, I might go so far as to say the fanbase really, really doesn’t like the former MVP who later served time for performance enhancing drug use. This was discussed after the home opener when Braun smashed three…
