So just another Saturday night in Center City with friends when OH MY GOD HEY THAT’S RYAN HOWARD AND CLIFF LEE WALKING DOWN THE STREET IN EVERYMAN HOODIES. Whatever. My buddy Steve and his friends were coming out of a bar at 15th and Sansom late last night when they bumped into Howard, Lee, and their wives, Krystle and Kristen, walking toward a parking garage. The unexpected encounter with $245 million worth of human produced some drunken bromantic excellence. Steve, not a small man by any stretch - north of 6’0” and 200 lbs every day of the week -...

Hey, where's Game 5??? (Pic via the Nats) I woke up in such a mood to rag on NL East rivals today. The boys must be back in town. Not surprisingly, the Nationals are going to celebrate their almost getting to the NLCS in an over-the-top fashion that Adam Aron would be proud of. Oh, the karma backwash is going to be strong for the Nationals. Continue reading

Screen grab CSN Maybe those La Salle kids should have raised money for the team to get to LA. I’m kidding. That’s mean. Great run for La Salle, they were just outplayed and overmatched by a better, bigger team. Congrats to those guys. Really. - Meanwhile, in less fluffy prose, F the Flyers. Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds in a shootout? Sure, Claude Giroux ripped off his panty-dropper, The Datsyuk, but then Schenn skated directly into the goalie and Simmonds nearly fell: [Giroux and Simmonds] These are the sorts of Tweets I’m getting, about the Flyers, not the Sixers: Paul...

The Phillies will be making their way back to Philadelphia this eve aboard a Delta 757. I love how their plane made the two-minute trip from Tampa to Clearwater to pick them up. Welcome back, baseball. [In 2011, the Phillies did a fly-by of the scoreboard before landing.] Continue reading

If you look closely enough, you can vaguely see something resembling a basketball court down there, via WFAA TV This is why the NCAA is a bunch of money-loving hypocrites. Look at this place-- fucking joke. Hey congratulations, you’ll be sitting in the lower risers where you can’t see dick other than the sweaty neck waddle of a Kansas almost-grad. So to compensate, we added even more ridiculous HD boards so you can spend $200 to see Dunk City in ultra HD, just like you could have done right in your fucking living room. I’ve never been to one of... Continue reading

Here’s another trailer for Sons of Ben: The Movie, this one on the New York-Philly hatred. I had the film’s director, Jeff Bell, on the podcast a few weeks ago. Do give it a listen if you haven’t yet. You can find out more about the film here. Cue soccer hating mongrels in the comments! Continue reading

I spoke about this on the Great Sports Debate (airing tonight at 7 on the Comcast Network!), and think it’s worth calling out here, if only because sports are totally miserable right now (Dear God, make the Phillies good this year or make me a bird, so I can fly far, far far away from here). In the summer of 2011, when Paul Holmgren, Howie Roseman and Ruben Amaro played their own Game of Thrones Swords, Philly sports were at an all-time high: best team in Major League Baseball, Flyers shaking up the earth, and Eagles getting all dreamy. At... Continue reading

From two years ago For the second year in a row, the Phillies were Forbes' fifth most valuable team in Major League Baseball (6th in 2011), with a valuation of $893 million, or, about six Cole Hamels. That’s up from $723 million last year. Forbes estimates the Phillies churned a small profit - about $600k in 2012 - after a loss of about $11.5 million in 2011. The increase is easily explainable: Forbes estimates the Phillies made an additional $30 million in revenue in 2012. Also, player salaries rose from about $150 million in 2010 to $180 million in 2011,... Continue reading

Ben Revere needs help. First he went to Chickie’s and Pete’s for a Philly - chicken - cheesesteak. Now he wants to get his hands on one of them Philly cheesecakes. C. For cake. Oh no. Speaking to Doug Glanville during the Phillies-Tigers game on ESPN today, this happened: Glanville: What are you most looking forward to getting to Philadelphia? Revere: I guess the cheesecake. I didn’t really have the great cheesecake my first attempt up there. I had a couple of Philly fans get on me about that. Glanville: They’re going to get on you because it’s a steak,...

Yeah, they just went right up there and will drop down again at random times. Not much I can do about it. We have to just keep working hard and speaking in clichés and maybe one day I'll be a consistent hockey player. Well here’s something that shouldn’t surprise you. James van Riemsdyk, who at times with the Flyers suffered from testicular ascension, is in some hot water with Leafs coach Randy Carlyle, this despite JVR being among the league leaders in goals. He hasn’t scored in seven games and was benched for the final eight minutes of a 3-2... Continue reading

Lots of game highlights in the first half, but the second half (around 2:20) is filled with locker room and post-game stuff. Very cool. via WIP Continue reading

Perhaps I should have had the guy who created the pissing urinal game on Crossing Streams. Next time. Joe Vallee joined me for the third show. He is the lead author of A Snowball’s Chance, a new book calling out the national media for their mistreatment of Philly fans. It’s an outstanding takedown of the numerous stereotypes that exist, with contributions from many local media folks and sports figures, including Ray Didinger, Mike Missanelli, Howard Eskin, Dan Baker, Michael Barkann, Larry Andersen, Jim Jackson, Scott Franzke and others. The book’s closing remarks were, fittingly, written by Brad Lidge. We talked... Continue reading

Yo, seriously, step the fuck off, Reading Fightins GM Scott Hunsicker-- there’s a new zany promotion sheriff in town, and this one wants you to piss excellence. Or have excellent pisses. Something like that. Cliff Lee would be great at this: Coca-Cola Park will be the first sports venue in the world to feature a brand new revolutionary "Urinal Gaming System", allowing fans to interact with the world's only truly hands-free urinal game controller, when the Lehigh Valley IronPigs open their 2013 season this April. The p-controlled video game systems will be featured within all men's restrooms at Coca-Cola Park... Continue reading

This fucking guy. Marv Albert and Steve Kerr spent two entire telecasts fellating Ole Miss point guard Marshall Henderson, and I have no idea why. They interpreted his general jackassery and the fact that he spent 25 days in jail for counterfeiting money and using cocaine as the actions of a whimsical and lighthearted NCAA equivalent of SNL’s Gilly. Oh, there goes that silly Henderson, disrespecting all 18,000 people in this building, tossing a fake blunt and... wait, is that a handjob motion? What a guy! They even had the gall to mention that Henderson’s father joked about his son... Continue reading

Poor Five. Last night, John Cena, while addressing The Rock and Mick Foley in the squared circle as part of a debate of sorts (I don’t care, nor do I feel like looking up the context), used Donovan McNabb’s name - and just his name - as an instant punchline. Talking about those who couldn’t win the big one, Cena... “Donovan McNabb. [boos] Don...ovan McNabb. [boos] Statistically, Donovan McNabb is the greatest quarterback to ever put on an Eagles uniform. [boos] But Mick, listen to how the people in the own city that he played for remember him. [boos] Why?... Continue reading

Is that an armored monetary delivery vehicle in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? CHA CHA ITS YA BOI DJACC AND I M XTATIC 2 SEE U BUT DATS A BRINKS TRUCK POPPIN OUT MY POCKET. LOCK IT. What he said. DeSean Jackson’s latest jam, Brinks Truck, was released on YouTube yesterday. Produced (and presumably funded) by his label, Jaccpot Records, Brinks Truck celebrates the foolish lifestyle lived by so many athletes and rap stars, and unintentionally foreshadows the inevitable bankruptcy that said Brinks truck will lead to when it hauls ass out of a given...

Besides trolling you for the first 30 seconds of this video, Benstonium’s NHL 94-ization of the Flyers’ 2-1 overtime loss to the Penguins is kind of mesmerizing. And sad. It’s sad, too. Because one of the only inaccuracies in the video is the fact that the Flyers’ defensemen move wayyyy slower than those little 2-D sprites in the original game. via Pensblog Continue reading

Cousin Bern - who clarified that he would, in fact, prefer to be called Cousin Bern - was on 97.5 The Fanatic with Mike Missanelli today (audio here). Among other tidbits, Cousin Bern told Missanelli that that Tyrone Garland’s family has been staying at home to watch the games, partly because they’re all quite stitious. Superstitious: “Same sneakers. [His mom] won’t do his hair until they lose.” She won’t do his hair? “His braids-- he won’t get them done over until they lose now.” How much maintenance do they need? “She spends hours on them as individuals.” They’re all good...
