After a more than disappointing start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers finally seem to be turning things around. The Orange and Black have gone 6-2-1 in their last nine games to put themselves back into the playoff picture after the first quarter of the season. The Flyers have found their scoring touch in their […]

The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Toronto Raptors 108-98 Nov. 20, and the score misleadingly implies that the game was a close one. Typically a subpar three-point shooting team (shooting 32.6 percent as a team before the game, a percentage that ranked 22nd out of 30 teams in the NBA), the Raptors were simply unconscious […]
The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of a bye week, riding a three-game winning streak that has them tied for first place in the NFC East. After starting out 3-5 in the first half of the season and allowing over 24 points per game on defense, the Eagles have won three straight since, giving […]
Drexel engineering student Connor Gallagher summed up his thoughts on the Philadelphia Eagles in one word: “Finally.” After a 4-12 record last year and the ups and downs of this season, this is a moment that Eagles fans have been longing for and are hoping will last. The team got its first home win in […]
This week, Philadelphia will be buzzing about Nick Foles’ impressive passer rating of 132.5 and the fact that he has thrown 16 touchdowns and no interceptions in seven starts. Young fans will likely make a concentrated effort to vote Foles into the Pro Bowl. Meanwhile, countless sidewalk conversations will include pledges of support for head […]
After two consecutive weeks of horrendous quarterback play, Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said to CSNPhilly.com earlier this week, “We need someone to step up, whether it’s an existing young quarterback or somebody we go out and acquire. … It’s about finding key players to take the horns.” Lurie then went on to support current […]
During the Aug. 17 Philadelphia Phillies game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, there were chants being yelled throughout Citizens Bank Park. “Fire Ruben! Fire Ruben! Fire Ruben!” The fans were showing their support for recently fired Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and their strong disapproval of the job being done by General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. […]
Five years can be longer than you think, and the Philadelphia Phillies had this brought to their attention last week. The organization welcomed back Brad Lidge, the delivery man of the final out that clinched the franchise’s most recent World Series in 2008, as he signed a one-day contract Aug. 1 to retire as a […]
The NFL’s preseason is usually used to find out who will make the team, but for the Philadelphia Eagles it will determine a lot more than that. The Eagles will send out an almost entirely new coaching staff this season. Although this may be exciting, new coaching presents two different schemes. Head coach Chip Kelly […]
Over the course of the past two weeks, soccer has become a popular topic in the United States. At the Major League Soccer All-Star Game, MLS Commissioner Don Garber announced that there would be four more teams added to the league. “As MLS enters a period of accelerated growth,” Garber explained, “the addition of new […]
The 2013 Philadelphia Phillies’ roster, with an Opening Day payroll of $159 million, was built to compete and win now. With many of the core pieces in the final year of their contracts, it is perhaps the final year for these players to make a run together. Among the impending free agents are Chase Utley, […]
The 2013 Philadelphia Eagles are looking to pick up the pieces of the puzzle that were missing last season. The team’s four wins in 2012 were the franchise’s lowest season total since 1998, and heading into training camp, the Eagles are still missing a very important piece of that puzzle: a starting quarterback. The quarterback […]
The Philadelphia Flyers experienced this past season what nobody in the City of Brotherly Love expected: regression. After tangoing with, and topping, the rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs just one season before, this year was a marked step backward. The team underperformed at every position, and the […]
Last offseason the Philadelphia 76ers were celebrating the arrival of 7-foot All-Star center Andrew Bynum and sharpshooter Jason Richardson. Bynum and Richardson were greeted to roaring crowds while Sixers fans dreamed of a playoff run led by their new big man and budding young star Jrue Holiday. Fast-forward to the present day, just a few […]
Ryan Howard could not proceed any further. His ailing leg — which has a weak arch of the foot, a recovering Achilles tendon and a torn meniscus — eventually became too problematic. On July 8 it was deemed necessary that he get the torn meniscus surgically repaired, a procedure that is estimated to require six […]
In her senior year of high school, Rachel Godwin Becker realized she could take her passion for sewing and turn it into a career. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in fashion design with a minor in fashion marketing from the International Academy of Design in Tampa, Fla., and working in the bridal industry […]
The Philadelphia Phillies are about to enter the most uncertain stretch of the season in their most uncertain season since 2000. Unable to play .500 or better baseball consistently, the Phillies will have a few major decisions to make as they approach the trade deadline. Four of their starting eight position players are unsigned beyond […]
On June 18, 2007, the lowly Philadelphia Flyers lost the NHL Draft Lottery despite being the worst team in the league. The Chicago Blackhawks, only the fifth-worst squad that year, drafted a highly regarded American right wing with the No. 1 overall selection. His name was Patrick Kane. On June 9, 2010, Kane squeaked a […]
The 2013 Philadelphia Phillies still have some of the stars from the 2008 World Series championship team, but right now they look like a different ballclub entirely. The veteran group has a record of 38-41 so far this season and is trailing the Atlanta Braves by seven games in the National League East as of […]
