Late last week and over the weekend, we stumbled upon several noteworthy pictures of current and recent Philly athletes. Some photos (Werth and D-Jac) were taken recently….


Taken in Orlando at the NBA All-Star Game, posted on Freddie Mitchell's Facebook page

… others (Giroux and Flyers) were following a road win against the New York Rangers in February of 2009. Members of the team – Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Darroll Powe, Riley Cote, Scottie Upshall and Claude Giroux – went out to celebrate the victory with Bill Richards, Mike’s father.

The Flyers had just beaten the Rangers, 5-2, during a Sunday afternoon game at Madison Square Garden. These were taken later that night, early Monday morning (as you can tell by the screen in the background in one of the pictures), at what looks like a Philly bar. Giroux and Richards had both scored in the win, which was cause for two generations of Canadian boys to get rowdy.

And yes, the tail was plentiful. Don’t ask– just view.

In case you were wondering, only one player remains from this not so Dry Island: Claude Giroux.


  1. That Wii Home Screen music turns any party into a legendary one.

  2. like father like son

  3. i hope Wii sports was played

  4. Richards’ dad probably brought the blow.

  5. Jayson Werth is a douche.

  6. Nova Supports Gay Wright's

    ha I was there that night. It’s the field house in the city. And you are exactly right about the Rangers game being that day. Richard’s uncles were all there too and Upshall was hammered perving on every chic.

  7. People are obsessed with pics of Carter and Richards together with beers in their hands. After reading the headline, I was expecting more, not just 10 pics of the same guys in the same bar on the same night.
    I feel bad for athletes in this city, especially around this time of the year when there’s nothing else to talk about……
    In other news, I gotta take a shiz-nit, brb.

  8. the tail was plentiful? the tale was 6 6’s…except for maybe the short haired one, but she has such short hair it’s like, meh.

  9. I wonder if they got mr. Richards dick
    Sucked that night

  10. The girl with the short hair parted to the side is gorgeous!

  11. Oh, the days when the Flyers could beat the Rangers…

  12. I call BS the Giroux story (despite the pictures). The Flyers beat the Rangers IN AN AFTERNOON GAME?

  13. I love how girls ho themselves to get in a picture. lol

  14. Mr.Richards looks coked up

  15. Really guys??? Coors Light? I expected more from Canadians.

    Coors Light is considered “IMPORTED” to them

  17. Hahahaha DeSean and Freddie Mitchell, fucking perfect. Freddie probably tried to sell him on a timeshare or something, fucking loser.

  18. i don't do cocaine, i just like the smell of it

    that last pic, the dude in the white looks like don vito… what is going on back there?!

  19. Wow you are simply obsessed with trying to prove Richards was no good. Are you on the TMZ/perez hilton payroll? You should be.
    Oh, my bad, it’s the panotch/carchidi/seravalli payroll.
    How long until you use these pictures as evidence Giroux is a drunk/druggie/tail chasing whore?
    My bad again! You’ve already started.
    Adam Proteau’s quote from THN refers to losers like you: “certain elements in Philadelphia who looked at Richards as you do if you’ve ever had a stunning girl break up with you: you create and/or exaggerate her deficiencies to make you feel better about not having her around any longer.”

  20. My interest in Richards died a little after he left Philly. The recent media obsession with him made sure to finish the job.

  21. I think the difference between Richards and Carter going out on the town vs Giroux going out is pretty big. They didn’t come to play every game. He does.

  22. Nam- sounds like its mike Richards- probably coked up too

  23. I swear if that girl with the short hair, front and center, ISN’T my boss’ daughter, then she’s an amazing lookalike. I’m gonna kill her for not telling me that she was there…lol.

  24. Sorry Stevie. Not Richards – not by a long shot. For a start older, wiser and graduate school educated.
