Reliving Easter 2011

This post originally appeared on April 24, 2011, Easter. Enjoy.

In the span of three hours, we witnessed near-miraculous achievements by the Sixers, Phillies, and Flyers. The Sixers somehow came back against the Heat, Roy Halladay struck out 14, Shane Victorino hit an inside the park home run, and the Flyers capped off an amazing comeback to beat the Sabres in overtime. What an Easter.


  1. @City of Philadelphia #WINNING, DUH


    What a day. What results.

    Talk about a Sunday for the ages! WOW!

  5. Damn! The Magic lost last night and are now on the brink.
    PS: Is it me or does twitvid have performance issues (compared to the youbtues)?

  6. Twitvid does not seem great, but I don’t know if it’s how it’s prepared or not. I noticed a Twitvid over on The Fightins and it seemed to play just fine.

  7. Crappers! Just read that the Phillies win comes with some bad news: Contreras is on the DL, and now Madson has “soreness”. The Phillies batters better start getting production way up if KK is going to close night after night. Crappers!

    Huh? I thought it was Contreras who had the sore elbow and Madson now inserted as the closer. I’m all confused.

  9. Crappers! Flash is all confused. Crappers!

    Contreras on the DL; Madson is closing but has soreness. You know it’s a matter of time before he goes on the DL too with that, given the Phillies luck of late. Clear it any?

  11. i need some utley in my life. i wonder how many games above .500 we will be when he gets back?

  12. hey guys, replaced it with youtube. use twitvid because mlb doesn’t like their videos on youtube, so this keeps it out of their sights

    The holy trinity. And on the 3rd loss, they rose again (Sixers/Flyers). Easter Halladay. What is it with Easter and sports the past 2 years? Last year, McNabb traded. This year, the trinity. LETS GO PHILLY

  14. Many thanks, IBM. All is cleared up. So, who replaces Madson as closer when he joins Jose on the DL? Antonio Bastardo? This thing is going from the sublime to the ridiculous as warp speed!

  15. Bastardo has looked good this year, but I’d like to see Stutes get a shot at it. Other more likely option… Baez (cringe)

    God no! Anyone but him! I’d sooner take my chances with JOAN Baez! Where’s Al Holland or Steve Bedrosian when we really need them?

    Let’s hope G comes to play today.

  18. -Phillies can’t get an extra base hit in Colorado….which has the air density of the moon

    -“G” appears to have not even traveled to NY

    -Eagles brass has gone into witness protection

    -Sixers everyone wanted them to…and still get ripped for it

    If Jesus is a Philadelphia sports fan, he is staying in the tomb.

    Happy Easter

    Oh, and Sean Brace still sucks.

  19. I got a hit last night!

  20. Wow, really depressing reading all of the upbeat comments.
    Was that really only three years ago? Everything went downhill in a hurry.

    P.S. Cody Asche can go but his gf can stay.

  21. Good times.

    And the Flyers finally beat the Rangers in MSG today!

  22. Amazing Memorial Day

    Chris Wheeler throws Tom McCarthy down a well and jumps in after him.
