Allen Iverson Keeps It Real In Hall of Fame Finalist Announcement

Kyle Scott - February 12, 2016

Allen Iverson is unreal. Just look at that getup. Acid-washed jeans, Question sneakers, Reebok shirt, gold chain, ice on wrist, Yankees hat (ah, whatever), gangsta lean– it’s all there. No one keeps it more real than AI. No one. Especially giving an interview. As part of the announcement, AI spoke to Sirius-XM and was asked about the Golden State Warriors. Specially, Steph Curry: Continue Reading

Is Dick Jerardi Even Trying Anymore?

Kyle Scott - February 12, 2016

Dick Jerardi is a product of a Philly sports time gone by. Presumably cloaked in dust-covered garments from the floor of the Palestra and footed in shit-stained shoes from the stables of fearful fillies, Jerardi and his neck wattle represent the sort of simplistic, my-opinion-is-bigger-than-yours thinking of the local sports establishment. This act worked prior to 2002. 2005, even. It no longer works in 2016.

This week, Jerardi yet again railed against the Sixers – who are certainly fair game for railing against – but did so in the most unhinged and ludicrous manner possible: Continue Reading

It Might Be a Few More Days Before Charges Against LeSean McCoy

Kyle Scott - February 12, 2016

That’s ESPN investigative reporter extraordinaire John Barr going even a step further than what I’ve been saying (that McCoy charges likely aren’t coming until at least Monday). Why the delay? A PERSON CONNECTED TO THE INVESTIGATION* told me that the DA’s office is “no longer [seeking] probable cause to arrest… they want beyond reasonable doubt,” which is the standard typically reserved for guilty judgements in court, not for the arrest, which has a much lower threshold.

Radko Gudas Nearly Decapitated Someone Last Night, And Herrrrre Come The Bullies

Kyle Scott - February 12, 2016

First Wayne Simmonds-Rangers drama, now a Dan Bylsma-backed squad is furious at Radko Gudas for nearly decapitating young whippersnapper Daniel Catenacci in only his third game in the league. Catenacci, who is a spicy-a-meatball, is undergoing concussion protocol.

This all happened in the third period, a frame after Gudas kneed Marcus Foligno, leading to this fight: Continue Reading

Crossing Streams (Episode 43): Maestro-ing McCoy

Kyle Scott - February 11, 2016

Jim, John and I discuss the process of obtaining and buying the LeSean McCoy video and Jim’s sharp eye in spotting Shady. A short discussion about that weird Nick Foles report, which may or may not be accurate, and the state of the Eagles front office. Digging in against the Sixers and their concerning missteps, and the recent announcement that they will run all ticket sales through StubHub beginning next year. We then have on my college friend, Jim Metaxas, a CPA turned professional ticket broker, to talk about what the StubHub news will mean for the entire market and how the Sixers might essentially be able to control it. Also, daily fantasy followup, Squatty Potty, your questions, and more.

HOLY SHIT JIM IS GOOD LOOKING! Is that Clark Kent with those rims? Perhaps a young Chris Martin spinning an early LP in the studio? Good lord! Almost two years now – TWO YEARS! – and I never knew my employed could pierce so deeply into your soul that when he averts his gaze it extracts the contents of your intestines through your mouth hole. Just wow. I mean, I can’t shake the visual. Young Jim has literally taken over my screen as I write this AND I LIKE IT: Continue Reading

Former Padres Coach is Mad As Hell and He’s Not Gonna Take It Anymore

Jim Adair - February 11, 2016

Man I’d love to see one of these from Ruben: Last night on Twitter – in now-deleted tweets – former Padres player and third base coach (under Bruce Bochy) Tim Flannery went in on Padres fans. Apparently Flannery gets tweets every once in a while calling him a “trader” for leaving for the Giants with Bochy. He doesn’t appreciate it (edited slightly for clarity): Continue Reading
