Former Flyers Lift The Cup

Last week the Los Angeles Kings won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, defeating the NJ Devils in six games in what was a very competitive series.  The Kings have been in existence for nearly 45 years and before last week have never hoisted the oldest trophy in North American sports.  L.A. has had […]

Banner Never Understood Philadelphia Fans

Last week long-time Eagles president Joe Banner stepped down from his post, which was a shock to everyone around the Delaware Valley.  This change is nothing short of monumental for the organization.  Banner was president for 18 years, and was a key component in turning the Eagles into the powerhouse NFL franchise they are today.  […]

Is 90’s Baseball Making A Return To Philadelphia?

The 2012 Phillies are not the Phillies we’ve been used to watching over the last five years.
They aren’t winning games like they used to, and the brand of baseball we’re seeing on the field isn’t exciting like years past.  Injuries obviously haven’t helped the situation, but all good things do eventually come to an end.  […]

A Happy DeSean Is A Better DeSean

Maybe the Eagles have finally learned from their past mistakes.  During the past decade they had a wide receiver named Terrell Owens sulk about his contract.  They let that situation ruin the entire team.  I firmly believe if the Eagles took care of Owens years ago the way they took care of DeSean Jackson we […]

Franchising DeSean sets up an explosive comeback in 2012

For weeks now reports stated the Eagles will use the franchise tag on wide receiver DeSean Jackson. On Thursday it finally became official as the franchise tag was placed on number 10. The Eagles became the first team this off-season to utilize the franchise tag. If the Eagles don’t sign DeSean long term he would […]

NHL’s Atlantic Divison: The Toughest Division in Sports

Tonight I was watching the Rangers/Devils game on NBC sports network. The game was called by the great Doc Emerick which makes the telecast even better than usual for an NHL game. Emerick in my opinion is one of the greatest if not the greatest announcer of all time for any sport. The excitement and […]

At 40 Jagr Can Still Play With The Best Of Them

Tuesday night the Flyers won a thriller in Winnipeg Manitoba when they defeated the Jets in overtime in one of the wildest hockey games in recent memory by a score of 5-4 . The win was good and hopefully will kick start this team to getting back on a long winning streak. The problem is […]

Phillies Bats need to be Clutch in 2012

Spring training is officially underway in Clearwater and the Phillies enter 2012 eager to get the bad taste out of their mouths from the bitter end to the 2011 season. Pitchers and catchers have officially reported and a handful of position players including Chase Utley, Hunter Pence, and Ryan Howard have arrived.
The hype that surrounded […]

Peyton Manning – A Once In A Lifetime Opportunity For Eagles

Earlier tonight on the NFL network the question was thrown around about where Peyton Manning could end up at in 2012. The teams thrown out as most likely landing spots included the Redskins, Dolphins, and Cardinals. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger then threw out the Eagles as a landing spot. He wasn’t necessarily saying this […]

Superbowl XLVI Should Be Remembered As “The Mediocre Bowl”

Once again Eagle fans are forced to watch the rival NY Giants celebrate a Superbowl championship. On Sunday night mediocrity reigned supreme in the NFL as the 9-7 Giants became the first team in NFL history to win a Superbowl with that record.
The Giants finished a measly 1 win better than the Eagles in the […]
