Your CB Year in Review

Screen Shot 2012-12-28 at 2.07.18 PM

Hello there! Checking in from my post-holiday diet of alcohol, video games, alcohol, smoked meats, and cookies… and from, somewhat effeminately, browsing The Knot’s wedding planning app (I got engaged last weekend), to bring you your CB Year in Review.

Since January 1, 1.6 million people have read Crossing Broad, accounting for 6.8 million visits and 10.5 million individual page views. To put that in perspective, the 6.8 million visits to Crossing Broad were nearly double the gross number of fan visits to Citizens Bank Park this year. So, I thank you.

Here are the top 10 most read stories on Crossing Broad in 2012:

10) Racism is Alive and Well with (Boston) Hockey Fans

9) So it Seems Michael Vick Has a Dog

8) We’ve Obtained Pictures of Pat Burrell Day Drinking and Grabbing a Girl’s Breast in Northern Liberties

7) And Now, A Conversation Amongst NFL Quarterbacks on Facebook

6) Examining Why Sidney Crosby is Such a Bitch

5) Gina Lynn’s Ex-Husband Reveals Porn Star Wife's Athlete Conquests [later recanted]

4) Your Flyers Rumors Running Commentary (no link, live blog)

3) Chris Therien Goes Off on Sidney Crosby

2) These (soon-to-be) NHL Draft Picks were Eager to Get Drunk and Screw Before Their Big Day

1) Phillies Hot Stove Running Commentary


A big Thank You to our current advertisers and promotional partners: Drinker’s Philadelphia, Godfather Locks, Girls of Philly, Joe Conklin, Monkey’s Uncle, The Armadillo Club, Sports Vault, Philly Phaithful, TiqIQ, Draft Street and Chickie’s and Pete’s. To those who helped and contributed in other areas (and I’m sure I left someone out): Ryan Gillon, Dan Fuller, Adam Reigner, John Ellis, Drew Cohen, John Miller, Dan Hershberg, Steve Lingle, Larry Colangelo, Joe DiBiaggio, Kyle McGrory and Big Scott Paterno. Local media friends, partners and just about anyone who has been kind to the site over the past year: Basically everyone at WIP and 97.5 The Fanatic, the Great Sports Debate, FOX Philly’s Good Day, CSN’s Lunch Break folks and countless others.

Most of all, thank you to Ms. CB (soon to be Mrs. CB) and you, the reader, for the continued support that make this site what it is– the best sports blog, pretty much ever.

Top 10 Philly Sports Moments of the Year, and Andy Reid’s firing… on Monday.

    That girl who’s boob that Pat the Bat grabbed is a bigger whore the recklesss and Kyle puss out and stopped the comments on

  • A Facebook User December 28, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    What happened to Princess Sass?

  • RubesPubes December 28, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    @ Kyle, do you really think that 1.6 million people have visited this site? If so, you are even more full of yourself than I originally thought. In case you didn’t learn this as part of your $150k education , unique IP address hits and “people” aren’t the same thing. My guess would be that no more than 5,000 unique people have visited this site. Just because Candy from the Oak visits this site on her/his home computer, work computer, iphone and ipad, it doesn’t mean that you have had 4 “people” that viewed your site. And now lets take it a step further and assume that Candy is at Starbucks and checks the site using their free wifi as she/he is enjoying his/her morning coffee. Now all of a sudden you have 5 “people”? And when Candy goes to Panera Bread to get his/her lunch and checks ot the site on their wifi, does that mean that 6 people now visited your site? I hope that you advertisers are smart enough to realize that your stats are complete bullshit before they invest their hard earned money advertising to the same 100 white trash losers every day.
    P.S. Congrats on the engagement. I am setting the over/under for the divorce at September 2015.

  • Kevin Maas December 28, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    It’s a crime that Rachel Recklesssss didn’t make the top 10!!’

  • Andrew Bynum's mom December 28, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    This post reeks of a response from the bashing he’s taken in the comment sections lately. What a pompous asshole.

  • Candy from the Oak December 28, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    More of a Wawa coffee person.

  • DC itus December 28, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    @RubesPubes — I really think you are onto something. You caught CB in what could only be described as a brilliant pyramid advertising scheme. When you said “My guess” I just knew the follow would be worth reading. It’s how you use numbers in your argument that really drew me in. I mean anyone can write down a 4,5 and 6, but you took the time to space them out, put words in between them.
    It is totally logical that the entire CB team is running around Philadelphia pinging the site from every Starbucks, Panera Bread and McDonalds. Bravo RubesPubes Bravo, I really look forward to your next post.

  • RubesPubes December 28, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    @ DC itus (aka Kyle’s Uncle), was this supposed to be read in the voice of a Bud Light real men of genius commercial? Because that’s how it sounded in my head just much more unfunny and annoying. My guess (wait for it) is that you haven’t gotten laid in a while. Maybe 2013 will be a better year for you.

  • TJ December 28, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Can’t stop laughing how rubespubes used candy as an example of page views. Hahaha

  • 3 Finger Lenny December 28, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    I’m shocked the story of Shane Victorino being a sex addict & cheating on his wife non stop didn’t make the top 10. That phony loves breaking the 7th commandment

  • LetsGoFlyers December 28, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    God I hate Crosby

  • whitey mcwhite person December 28, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Those numbers are bullshit…i bet ANGELO CATALDI could clear it up for us

  • whitey mcwhite person December 28, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Commentor of the year is Candy from the Oak

  • Rhea Hughes' Veal Cutlets December 28, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Damn this! The Rachel Reckless story, like, TOTALLY made Crossing Broad. Also, what happened to the story of Ruben Amao grindin’ up on that young thang?

  • Jim Washburn December 28, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Why the fuck hasn’t Juanita Castillo cleaned my den yet?!?!!

  • Angelo Cataldi December 28, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    HEY KYKLE SCOTT! Your website is a shining beacon of hope for all the greasy, pimple ridden, small dicked, stinking, sociopathic morons in the world. While im off fucking 18 year olds in their velvety smooth assholes and blowing my rich decedant ejaculate directly into RHEA HUGHES eye sockets, they all congregate here. They write Down their brilliant thoughts for all to see. Great thoughts and gestures, such as making fun of garret Reid for dying, or calling every female they hear about a cunt…you know–The type of things real men say. And when they’re waiting for people’s responses, they eat hot pockets their mom made them and shit in the trash bin next to the computer.
    Except for candy of the oak. Hecant take the time to read more than a paragraph because he’s a stupid cunty faggotniggerjew that can’t read. Even if he could read, he’s too busy sticking his swollen, green, festering, nub of a penis inside his cats anus so he can feel like a real woman. He’s a fucking dildo.
    Fuck 700level or any site that posts REAL stories. I’ll tell you what? How bout I finger my rectum anally and then spray diarrhea directly into dike reeses mouth whilst pissing out my boner on RHEA HUGHES infected cunt. I fucking hate you all Kyle. Eat my piss.

  • JT December 28, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Angelo ?

  • The Original that guy December 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    Candy=commenter of the year
    Cataldi=bob saget of CB.
    Kyle, your engagement is bullshit because i didnt see it on facebook.
    Rubespubes and any of the other 5 cocksuckers who like thephightins gooch should go suck a dick since its more productive than you posting on here and spewing out things more foul than Cataldi’s tangents.
    Also, more big 5 and big east kyle. Work on it, bitch.

  • Big Ty December 28, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Candy & Angelo are losers

  • whitey mcwhite person December 28, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    @that guy, fuck college bball, nobody cares about that shit

  • "Wild" Bill Soreman December 28, 2012 at 8:58 pm

    Commenter of the year in 2011 was Iron Balls McGinty (this guy sucked by the way). This year Candy, 3 Finger and Mr. Edward Murphy are the trifecta.
    Murph might actually get my nod. I can never tell if he is fucking with us or not.

  • "Wild" Bill Soreman December 28, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Remember that asshole chirp? That’s the only good thing about the hockey strike….. No chirp.

  • Candy from the Oak December 28, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    @ angelo do you hit cap lock or hold shift when you type rhea

  • Chance- Vice President of the GnA Fa December 28, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Chirp was a pussy

  • Chance- Vice President of the GnA Falcons December 28, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Too many beers. I meant falcons.
    Whatever happened to those pussies chirip & iron balls mcginty

  • Edward Murphy December 28, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Members of the forum,
    I would like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a Happy and Safe New Year and a very Merry belated Christmas. I would like to hede a warning to everyone. On Monday evening, if you plan on consuming alcoholic beverages, please, please take the proper precautions. Prior to being inebriated, please set up a ride with your local taxi cab establishment or designate a driver. If you assign someone to be your designated driver on the front end, you will not have any issues on the back end. It is a time of celebration and we do not want anyone to suffer the consequences of someone being selfish and driving while intoxicated.
    To Mr. Scott, Thank you for providing us with this forum to freely speak our mind and express our opinions. Whether or not they are intellectual or uneducated and childish, I thank you. God bless

  • Chris December 28, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    if you charged a fee to read your comments, I would gladly pay it. I’m not sure who the commenter of the year is, but the commenter of this post is Jim Washburn hands down
    Congrats on a big year man, you’re a talented dude.

  • Jake D December 28, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Lmao at Ed Murphy post. Wtf

  • Rachel Recklessssssssz December 29, 2012 at 12:06 am

    @whitey mcwhite person the same argument is often used against the NBA.
    Except the NBA is cared for by West Philly, North Philly, the bustling port of Chester (if you believe the Sons of Ben bullshit), and white folks across the Delaware valley who may not have received a diploma, such as yourself. Delco4Lifer I assume? These people can be spotted in Eastern Bucks around Levittown and Bensalem, The entire county of Delaware enrolled in public school and 30% of the catholic schools excluding Malvern and St. Joe’s Prep, and the greater Northeast and spotted marks of manayunk where a guy dated hood trash one time in high school, so he still sports his Eric Snow jersey.
    NCAA Big 5 fans can be found from the 5 city school participating: La Salle, St. Joe’s, Villanova, Temple, UPenn (and increasingly Drexel). You can spot them being the ones doing actual work, not belonging to unions, taking pride in their jobs, becoming productive members of society, and rarely holding a job paid for by the tax payers of Philadelphia. Like I said, productive.
    Yeah I give about 2 shits more about the NCAA than the hood rats in the NBA.

  • whitey mcwhite person December 29, 2012 at 2:57 am

    Rachel, back to sucking nig penis ASAP

  • Bobby December 29, 2012 at 6:39 am

    I say in 2013 Kyle disables the disgraceful comment section on the articles. No class 700 level lowlifes

  • Rum Ham December 29, 2012 at 7:30 am

    What’s the context of the picture of the texts?

  • Ron Mexico December 29, 2012 at 10:12 am

    He cataldi my New Years wish is that you work on your material, it’s getting old stale and predictable. Most of all, FUCK YOU

  • Donkey Dick December 29, 2012 at 10:30 am

    Ron Mexico, go choke on a bleeding aids infested dick

  • Ron Mexico December 29, 2012 at 10:33 am

    It’s herpes donkey you fucking mook

  • Scott Kyle December 29, 2012 at 10:37 am

    @ Bobby, dream on, it will never happen. The the inflated 1.6 million would become an inflated 10,000 number. Idiots in the comment section = revisits to check if someone addressed their comment.

  • jdglskjgs December 29, 2012 at 11:18 am

    I love when he shut the comments off while he hocks those horrible t-shirts. The bashing those shirts would take was good reading.

  • jdglskjgs December 29, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Funniest Post of the Year Nomination: Kyle compares his girlfriend to Minka Kelly. That is all.

  • Al Bundy December 29, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Godfather locks is a scam-capper

  • Angelo Cataldi December 29, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    Hey Ron Mexico….your small cellulite ridden pouch of skin that is supposed to be a penis is outdated and predictable because you haven’t used it since the eagles won their last championship. Youre a pathetic waste of sperm. Instead of impregnating your scumbag mother, your dad should’ve shot his load on his living room floor and set it on fire, burning him, her, and the sperm that made you all at once. After I wash myself with lube because of your terrible attitude, I’m going to stick my finger inside of RHEA HUGHES anus whilst wearing barbed wire. Fuck you. You’re a fucking socialist sand nig with no intelligence.
    And candy, I type RHEA with my boner, cause it automatically caps it no matter what.

  • MikeMamula59 December 29, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Hey angelo your boner must be tiny to hit those little keys. And how can tou piss with a boner. Inconceivable. Seriously though, what IS with the text convos? Who cares

  • Ron Mexico December 29, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    I hope RHEA HUGHES gives you genital warts cataldi

  • Peg December 29, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    What’s the deal with the chick in the pic??

  • P December 29, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    What is the deal with white people?

  • Ron Mexico December 29, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Fuck you

  • P December 29, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    What is the deal with wet backs?

  • Ron Mexico December 29, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    Again… Mother Fuck you

  • Charlie Brown December 29, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    Worst commenter of the year goes to “Your Mother”
    Posted about 167 comments – not 1 of which were funny.

  • The Polish Coffin Stealer December 29, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Thanks for all of the comments you all make. Cataldi, you are one twisted minded motherfucker. Have a good new year everyone. Sto Lat!

  • whitey mcwhite person December 29, 2012 at 9:25 pm

  • A Reader who gives a dam December 30, 2012 at 12:36 am

    MVP is Edward Murphy.
    He’s high character & passion for his causes puts everything into perspective.

  • A Reader who gives a dam December 30, 2012 at 12:37 am


  • vrenzi December 30, 2012 at 1:58 am

    shows how lame this year in philly sports was. especially when the top blog was the one that focused on how the phillies were getting better..

  • Matt December 30, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Remember when this site used to be respectable? Then Kyle started plugging for knockoff t-shirts, amateur porn sites and sports picks. I understand you have to pay the bills, but there are so many different ways. If I wanted to buy the stuff your advertising I would already have it.

  • Chirp December 30, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    I am honored that I was remembered…
