    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

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

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Looking at potential Flyers’ playoff opponents

    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…

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

    Andy Reid, Michael Vick, Tony DUngy

    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…

  10. 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…

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

    John.Oates

    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…

  12. Maybe don’t boo Ryan Braun tonight

    Braun.daily.news

    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…
