Voila_Capture617We have… a real football team. The Eagles are good. There’s no other way to say it. They’ve improved each of the last three weeks, their defense has held opponents to 21 points or less for seven straight games (the only team in the NFL to do that), they have the leading rusher in the NFL, 67 plays of 20+ yards, an emergent Riley Cooper*, oh, and Nick Foles:

Voila_Capture618 Voila_Capture609*Sequence of words I never thought I’d write.

Let’s hit it!


But first, a word from our sponsors:

Nick Foles. Meet him at the Sports Vault in the King of Prussia Mall on Tuesday, December 3 from 7 – 9 p.m. Details and tickets here.

Romo-ing. Get the new shirt from Philly Phaithful’s new Rivalry Wear:


Tickets. There are some unbelievable deals on Philly sports tickets right now on Crossing Broad Tickets. I don’t know how else to put it.


The roundup:

Our coverage yesterday:

LeSean McCoy wore a Raiders jacket.

And then he stole a Redskins flag, and upon further review, didn’t wipe his ass with it.

Security guard checked out Erin Andrews’ ass.

Jason Babin pulled someone’s hair out, because he’s a fucking lunatic.

The Redskins are accusing the officials of bullying.

D.C. reporter ripped Philly fans.

Apparently, besides being able to break off 42-yard almost-touchdowns, Brent Celek is a cockmaster:


This is something I might need to ask my Great Sports Debate colleague about.

Chip Kelly is a giver:

No one seems to know why LeSean McCoy and Riley Cooper were going at it on the sidelines yesterday. Maybe it’s because said they aren’t friends anymore. Whatever. If both keep playing the way they have been, we’ll just turn the other cheek. Season status: not ruined.

Jim Cramer and Mark Hoppus continue to do battle for most obscurely famous Eagles fans (via their Twitters):

Broad Street Hockey thinks the Flyers need a new goal song and so do I… since it’s our podcast intro.

Cord-cutters: Amazon’s new Alpha House debuted this weekend. The first three episodes of Alpha House, a comedy about four senators sharing a house in D.C. and starring John Goodman, were made available. Highly recommended, though disappointed they were only 29 minutes each. Only one episode of Amazon’s other exclusive series, Betas, is available, and it’s just meh.

Alec Baldwin is a crazy SOB.

The Mets:

Infielder Ruben Tejada is considering filing a grievance against the New York Mets, accusing the team of shortchanging him one day of service time that would have allowed him to become a free agent after the 2016 season instead of 2017, two sources with knowledge of the situation told Yahoo Sports.

While teams regularly manipulate service time to keep players from reaching arbitration early, Tejada’s case is unique not only in keeping him from free agency but the Mets not trying to hide it.

Obama showed up at the Maryland game last night to support his brother-in-law, who is the coach of Oregon State, and his daughter wore the best sweater of all-time:


Wait, they boo in other cities, too?


Every so often, a phrase will enter our vernacular and permeate hipster dialogue and social media thingeries alike. The new one is though. An example had it been used in this post: Sasha Obama’s sweater though. The Eagles used it yesterday:

Voila_Capture616This one’s gotta stop. It makes no sense. Everyone who uses it sounds like a 14-year-old girl talking about seeing the senior high school jock shirtless in the gym. His bod though. We’re better than this America. Look how silly it is:

That Kim Kardashian-Kanye West SNL skit though.

Look at Philly.com cartoonist Rob Tornoe taking a shot at bloggers:


Funny. But I don’t have a chin-goat, Rob.

Ilya Bryzgalov has been summoned to saved the Edmonton Oilers season HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
