Your Friday Morning Roundup

Some items we didn’t get to over the last few days:

I wasn’t joking when I said they need to put a William Penn statue on top of Mt. Comcast. Which is exactly what they’re going to do:

Comcast set out to “reverse the curse” by placing a small William Penn figurine on top of the office tower it opened in 2007.

The Phillies won the World Series the following year.

Comcast is now planning an even taller tower next door.

But a Comcast spokesman says William Penn will be moving up, too, when the 59-story tower opens in 2017.

Yuengling is making their own ice cream, for some reason.

Kevin Stocker and Doug Glanville (ughhhh) might be the leaders in the clubhouse:

Earlier in the week, Todd Zolecki wrote that Brad Lidge, Mitch Williams, Curt Schilling and John Kruk were likely off the table (Kruk is still a longshot), and:

Sources said names in the mix include Doug Glanville, who works with ESPN; Buck Martinez, who broadcasts with the Blue Jays; Kevin Stocker, who has received high marks for his work with the Pac-12 and CBS Sports networks; and Mickey Morandini, who is a coach with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Jamie Moyer’s name also has been mentioned.

Ricky Bottalico and Ben Davis currently work pregame and postgame shows at Comcast, and they could receive consideration to join McCarthy in the booth.

Chris Coste previously worked as a pregame and postgame analyst with Comcast, but he is not a candidate at this time.

Meanwhile:

LeSean McCoy predicts multiple Super Bowls:

“The time has come,” McCoy said when prompted by Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle that Eagles fans are frustrated by not having a Lombardi trophy in their possession. “In the next five years, we should get a couple wins.

“We have the talent, we have the coach and the players all have the same goal and same dreams.”

More on SCP:

“He’s creepy,” said Rae Dean, who lives a few houses away from Pagano. “He’ll come outside with his underwear on. One time he came outside carrying a gun with just his underwear on.”

Dean said Pagano moved to the neighborhood about nine years ago and lives there with his wife and 10-year-old daughter.

Totally normal.

  1. Stocker or Glanville? I don’t know anything about Stocker, but I have seen Glanville on ESPN and I can’t tell you if he is good or not because I typically fall sleep after he says 4 words. That said, take some comfort in knowing Eskin is reporting this. Dude hasn’t been right on a “report” in like 20 years.

    But it is good to see the Phillies resigning Kendrick for way more than he deserves and going after a 37 year old left bench bat who hit .240 last year!

      I was thinking the same thing about Eskin. As soon as he ‘breaks’ news i know it’s off the table completely.

      I also think it’s funny that this ‘sports’ website only covers actual sports news once in a weekly recap. Meanwhile we have to continuously read about Kyle’s feud with a no-name stripper.

    Angelo should try & get the Swiss cheese pervert in the wing bowl. He could be the ultimate bad guy

  3. Yuengling made ice cream during prohibition to scrape by. Now its bringing it back to make money off its brand.

  4. Kacie McDonnell begs for compliments this week by posting a selfie of her new haircut.
    Can we post the picture here and have the readers vote on whether they like it or not?

  5. Why the hate on Glanville?

    Dude’s a genius. He seems boring on ESPN because we’re used to boisterous douchebags everywhere and he’s not that. He’s extremely intelligent, knows the game, and has more personality than Wheels. I’d be ecstatic if he was the new color guy.

  6. I don’t like Stocker or Glanville. I’m hoping for Moyer at this point. I really wish they got rid of T-Mac…

  7. Stocker or Glanville=zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  8. Guys… why not Glannville? He is certain to add a little bit of color to the broadcast

  9. I can only imagine the nice naps I will be enjoying this summer on sat & sun afternoons listening to big tity t mac & boring ass Granville.

  10. Kill TMac's Moobs

    I’ll happily take Glanville’s calm demeanor over Ricky Bo’s dead fish stare and grunts of approval. The best color guy we’ve ever had (Ashburn) often said about ten words per inning. Glanville is an intellectual class act who actually grew up as a Phils fan and would be fine, just get TMac and his moobs the fuck outta here.

  11. The placement of a statue doesn’t make a sports team win or lose.

  12. Still waiting for McCarthy to get canned. I hope the whole broadcast is a disaster so they are forced to terminate Tom. Hoping for a Zumoff/Snow situation where they hate each other.

    Eskin tweeting that Glanville and Stocker are the finalists pretty much guarantees it will be neither one of them. That piece of shit hasn’t been right in a quarter century.

    Doug Glanville is SABR friendly and educated. The Phils won’t hire him. I know he’s not as animated and/or adored as the rumored guys to take over but I’d guarantee he’d be better than McCarthy. However, I do understand that’s like being the tallest dude in a class of midgets.

  16. Eskin can’t pick his nose. He said the Eagles would beat the Saints along with his bookie, Mark Lawrence. Wrong. He also has not lived up to his wager bet where he had to walk or bike somewhere. Have no idea why CBS retains him. When you lose your full time job and replaced by Barkann, it’s time to hang it up.

  17. Hey morons, I never had a bad day in my life. While your slaving at your minimum wage job I’m driving a free Loxus courtesy of Loxus of Choster. I’m staying in a beautiful penthouse suite courtesy of the Boring Schmata Hotel and Casino. See my fur coat on the Eagles sidelines thanks to Vontraska Limited it didn’t cost me one thin dime. You would be an idiot not to notice my Bates Headphones I got from Jimy Iodine.

    • Wow, so glad you didn’t use the actual names of those products and locations! You might have been sued for copyright infringement.

      If I hear of anyone who found your set, I’ll let you know.

    Kyle, do you come on here and get a kick out of the comments section like everybody else? Or do you more or less ignore them? I’m genuinely curious, please answer
