  1. 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…

  2. Nope on Noel for Sixers’ “4-4-14″ game in Boston

    Apr 4, 2014, 5:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Well, we hoped that Nerlens Noel’s cryptic “4-4-14″ tweet some weeks ago was our prospect big man’s attempt to tell us something that not even his coach apparently yet knew: That he would be making his long-awaited return from injury for the Sixers’ April 4th game–incidentally, in Boston, where Noel grew up as a Celtics…

    Phillies Cubs Baseball

    Wrigley Field is celebrating 100 years of baseball this season and it all starts with the Philadelphia Phillies taking on the Chicago Cubs this afternoon in a matinée game serving as the Cubs 2014 home opener. It is one of three home openers the Phils will play in this season. The first was a win…

  4. “We traded who?!?”: Why you shouldn’t panic about the Union trading Jack McInerney

    Apr 4, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    JACK McINERNEY

    Even if you’re the most casual Union fan, the name you know is young striker Jack McInerney. I’d guess if you asked any Philly sports fan to name one Union player, he’s the name you’d get 90 percent of the time. As of today, he’s no longer a Union player. On Friday, the Union shipped…

  5. Replacing DeSean: More Zach Ertz, please

    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.…

  6. Charles Barkley on Conan: I once tipped $25,000 [VIDEO]

    Sir Charles was a guest on Conan O’Brien’s show on Thursday night and was his typical jovial self. One of the funnier segments was when Chuck unloaded on Shaq for doing too many endorsement deals and rubbing too much lotion on his fake body. Then he gets into some talk about tipping and admits to…

  7. 3 Stars: Sloppy Flyers shutout by Bobrovsky, Blue Jackets in uninspiring performance

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 2-0 loss – their third straight and second straight shutout – to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center through the perspective of two players and one suddenly struggling special-teams unit. Unlike the Flyers’ previous two losses when they hung with the NHL’s two best…

  8. The Evster compares Don Baylor’s broken femur to other excruciating sports injuries

    Don Baylor, Vladimir Guerrero

    Earlier this week, Don Baylor (the same Don Baylor who hit 338 career home runs and once ate an entire live turkey on late night television) broke his goddamn femur attempting to catch a ceremonial first pitch. (If you haven’t seen the video of Baylor’s leg exploding, you can watch it here.) Baylor reached behind him…

  9. DeSean Jackson will wear No. 11 in Washington; Here’s his new jersey

    Well, there you have it. No. 10 is no more — at least for DeSean. You may have heard D-Jacc was interested in telling the franchise QB down in Washington to change his number: “I definitely am familiar with the No. 10 on Robert Griffin,” Jackson said during a conference call. “But, you know, we’ve talked…

  10. Flyers ready for ‘huge’ game against on-their-heels Blue Jackets

    5-bobrovsky-USA

    They’re all pretty important for the playoff push at this point but they’re especially so when the opponent is just 4 points behind in the standings. The Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets this evening at the Wells Fargo Center and there’ll be a rather unique goalie matchup. Former Flyer Sergei Bobrovsky will take on former…

    Fan appreciation night for Sixers fans takes place this Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia and in advance of that big event the team promised “76 minutes of mayhem” today. The event took place from noon until… 1:16 pm down around 5th and Arch Streets. Many fans who showed up received…

  12. Why does Chip Kelly attend so many pro days of players the Eagles probably won’t draft?

    This video segment about Johnny Manziel’s pro day is obviously a couple of days old but I just saw it for the first time this morning and found part of it interesting. In it, Johnny Football talks a little bit about his relationship with Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly from the time years ago…
