  1. @FakeWIPCaller’s Ten Best (And Ten Worst) Philadelphia Sports Moments of 2013

    Dec 26, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Riley Cooper

    The year 2013 got off to a pretty good start for Philadelphia sports fans, with the firing on New Years’ Eve of Andy Reid. Unfortunately, nothing else good happened for quite awhile, with the Phillies, Sixers and Flyers all turning in awful seasons. It was another year without a local championship, just like all of…

    With the Eagles on their bye week, the Phillies assembling a squad of over-35 All-Stars and the Sixers completely ruining their future by trying hard and winning, I figured we’d try something different this week: It’s the first-ever @FakeWIPCaller Philly sports mailbag. @FakeWIPCaller @The700Level how many Super Bowls would Jim Johnson have won if he…

  3. Ray Emery: A true Philadelphia hero for our time

    On Friday night, things were looking pretty ugly for the Flyers, and for our city too. The Flyers were down 7-0 to the Washington Capitals, in front of a hostile Wells Fargo Center crowd. In the third period, things looked pretty hopeless. At that point, some teams would have rolled over and died. Some teams…

  4. Foles, Eagles, Foles!: A legend is born. @FakeWIPCaller is ready to call the Eagles’ quarterback controversy.

    In Sunday’s thrilling victory over Tampa Bay, Eagles fans got a glimpse at the future of the franchise — and that future is Nick Foles. Not only did Foles throw for 296 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, but he was poised, confident, and didn’t choke at all. Foles led the first-place Eagles to a…

    Michael Vick

    For all those years, every true Eagles fan prayed that one day, we’d at last be rid of Joe Banner, Donovan McNabb, and Andy Reid. One by one, we got our wish. So why does being an Eagles fan still suck? Here are ten reasons why, counting down: 10. Michael Vick, whose last playoff win…

  6. Fire Sam Hinkie

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    The Sixers need a general manager who’s willing to do the most important thing of all: give frequent local media interviews Sam Hinkie should be ashamed of himself. He’s been the general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers for two months, and in that time he’s given two press conferences and zero radio interviews. His only…

  7. Why the Sixers Must Name Allen Iverson Head Coach

    The Philadelphia 76ers have spent the past month conducting one of the most boring, uneventful, irrelevant coaching searches in the history of sports. Ever since the team announced the resignation of Doug Collins and the hiring of math nerd Sam Hinkie as general manager, we’ve seen nothing but candidates who are either retreads or assistants…

  8. What Roy Halladay Owes Philadelphia

    The Sunday before last, Roy Halladay gave up nine runs in 2 and 1/3 innings to the awful Miami Marlins, bringing his ERA for the season to 8.65. After the game, Halladay admitted that his shoulder had been bothering him for awhile. Following a visit a few days later to Dr. Lewis Yocum — because…
