Seeing a former athlete in the broadcast booth has turned into a common occurrence in today’s sporting landscape. However, a sport like crew typically lacks big-name stars, so when Drexel University graduate Alexandra Paulin found her way into the 6ABC booth for the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta May 10 and 11, it was quite the [...]
For the second consecutive May, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay has landed on the disabled list. And for the second consecutive May, many questions surround the right-hander, his future and the future of the organization. The tipping point for Halladay’s struggles came May 5 when he surrendered nine runs and recorded only seven outs. It [...]
In his first year in charge of making draft decisions for the Philadelphia Eagles, head coach Chip Kelly chose pieces that he hopes can become the foundation for a winning formula in Philadelphia.

Things were rolling as smoothly as possible roughly 10 months ago for Bruiser Flint’s Dragons.

If so, you’re probably quite disappointed at this point. But pout not, for the cream of the Colonial Athletic Association crop this winter can still [...]
Something has been lost in the disappointing 2-6 start for the Drexel men’s basketball team. Samme Givens graduated last year, and Chris Fouch is lost for the season, which sure has given us a lot to talk about in the midst of the team’s early-season struggles. Still, we fully expect our Dragons to bounce back. [...]
Featured above are former sports editor Alex Falk (left), co-sports editor Julia Fisher (center), and co-sports editor John Chagaris (right). The trio spent many late production nights at the Triangle office. What does writing for The Triangle mean to me? Well, let’s go back a few years. As a teen entering college, one of my [...]

On June 12, the investigative team PSU, which was hired to do an internal investigation of the situation, published their 267-page review called the Freeh [...]
Cole Hamels had the Philadelphia Phillies right where he wanted them. A 28-year old about to enter his prime, a clear fan favorite, a playoff hero and a very talented left-hander, he had the ideal resume to bring to the table, whether negotiations took place in Philadelphia or elsewhere. The Phillies made it clear they [...]
The Phillies have put together arguably their most disappointing first half of the season in franchise history in the first three-plus months of the 2012 season.

This article is dedicated to the ever-inspiring head coach (emeritus) of the University of Tennessee women’s basketball program, Pat Summitt. Some of you may be wondering why I am writing about a coach from Tennessee. She is nowhere near Philadelphia on the map, but in our hearts she couldn’t get any closer. Summitt encompasses what [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers had an overall successful season. There weren’t too many expectations going into the season because the team was, for the most part, brand new. The common thought among “hockey people” is that trading away a former 40-goal scorer and a team captain could set the organization back a few years. The Flyers [...]

Over the last few years, the 76ers’ organization has struggled to choose a defined path for the team.
