Say Hello to Crossing Broad Mid-Atlantic

Very excited about this announcement. I think it’s really the next step in Crossing Broad’s growth. All the details are in the video, but I want to introduce you to our new Mid-Atlantic correspondent, Ryan Petzar:

Voila_Capture 2014-04-01_08-53-38_AM

Ryan used to write for The Fightins and, once upon a time, hated me. But we’ve since mended our broken fences and are moving forward on this journey together. He’s a Phillies die-hard, but grew up an Orioles fan and generally prefers D.C.-Baltimore metro area sports over Philly sports (“because they win,” he says). Please follow him on Twitter (@petzrawr). The wr at the end of his handle actually stands for Washington Redskins, so it’s a good fit.

That’s it. We’re very excited about this. As I say in the video, nothing will change on the site. We’re just going to be adding great Mid-Atlantic content in the same snarky and passionate voice you’ve come to love. It’s truly the next step in our growth. So thank you for your continued support of– Philly’s, and the Mid-Atlantic’s, most irreverent sports blog.

    Looking forward to the Blue Rocks analysis, said no one ever.

    I see what you did there Kyle.

    April Fools Kyle!!!!!

  • NAMBLA April 1, 2014 at 9:19 am

    That dude looks pervy

  • Troll Hamels April 1, 2014 at 9:20 am

    I assume this is an April Fools joke, and a lame attempt at that.

  • sheckler April 1, 2014 at 9:21 am

    hack fucking joke bro.

  • MPP April 1, 2014 at 9:22 am

    As soon as I saw he likes dc/baltimore metro sports because they win I knew this had to be a joke. those teams don’t win anything

  • Time Management April 1, 2014 at 9:22 am

    You could have spent that 5 minutes doing literally anything else, like shaving your balls with a rusted salad fork.

  • Kudos April 1, 2014 at 9:24 am

    Kudos on the typical hipster Baltimore fan, though. Cool square frames, Devo.

  • KyleDoesAnything(BJs)For$$$$$ April 1, 2014 at 9:24 am

    The joke is that he’s serious

  • BD April 1, 2014 at 9:25 am

    That dude looks like a total fan of Sandusky.

    Weak, a golf outing story would of done the job

  • Marvin Monroe April 1, 2014 at 9:29 am

    Orioles fan eh?

    I bet the guy is pretty crabby.

  • MM April 1, 2014 at 9:32 am

    Dud looks like Cookie Rojas with down syndrome.

    • Ronaldo Mexicanus April 1, 2014 at 9:40 am


  • Ok Kyle April 1, 2014 at 9:36 am

    We don’t give a shit about Baltimore. DC is the forgotten city in all of our divisions. If this was a NYC expansion maybe I’d believe it. So you’re telling me all the Google ads are paying for an extra writer to cover Nick Markakis’s night out in Inner Harbor?

    • ^^^^^^Hey Look^^^^^^ April 1, 2014 at 9:38 am

      That guy is dumb

    • Marvin Monroe April 1, 2014 at 9:44 am

      Yea, I don’t want to hear about Nick Markakis’s night out in the Inner Harbor. I’d rather hear about Crush Davis going out in Fels Point. Inner Harbor is pretty touristy. I would prefer some reports on cheaper crab places.

        LP Steamers near Fort McHenry.

  • Princess Sass's finger sniffer April 1, 2014 at 9:39 am

    I think I fucked him up the ass once?

  • Kyle Kendrick April 1, 2014 at 9:39 am

    How bout you just make fun of me once a year?

  • Jack April 1, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Those curtains are ugly as shit

  • Angelo Cataldi's fat cock April 1, 2014 at 9:54 am

    I wonder if he’s a power bottom

  • Andy Schreiber April 1, 2014 at 9:55 am

    I hope this is an April Fool’s joke.

    If not, please make that a separate site.

  • Hipple April 1, 2014 at 9:58 am

    meech’s heart has to be broken

  • Mike & Mike In The Morning April 1, 2014 at 10:04 am

    If you want to have people in DC look at CB content, fine. But make the Mid Atlantic shit a different site. Nobody in Philadelphia…it is called Crossing Broad, after all….gives a flying fuck about any other region. That is why 3 people listen to us in the morning…that and Preston and Steve.

    Oh, and maybe the fact that we fucking suck.

  • Johnny Weir April 1, 2014 at 10:04 am

    I just spanked it to this.

  • Poonany April 1, 2014 at 10:24 am

    God damn it Kyle, you are absolutely brutal on camera. Your voice sucks and so does you face

  • Bastardo's Giant Quads April 1, 2014 at 10:32 am

    Wakka Wakka

  • Jimmy McNulty April 1, 2014 at 10:42 am

    The fuck did I do?

  • Come on kyle April 1, 2014 at 10:48 am

    Are you kidding? This better be an April Fools joke. No one wants to read about “mid-atlantic” sports. get real

  • T.T. Boy April 1, 2014 at 11:15 am

    Crab and Monument logo = weak

  • Please say it ain't so April 1, 2014 at 11:34 am

    Please tell me this isn’t just a way for Kyle to continue covering Deseans instagram, I was really hoping we’d be done with that.

  • Sandy Lyle April 1, 2014 at 11:37 am

    Can you say “Philly – Centric” again, please ? Take Poonany’s advice and stay off camera !

  • Sheena Parveen April 1, 2014 at 11:37 am

    I usually refrain from slamming you on your own website, but this is just fucking stupid. What a complete waste of everyone’s time. You’re not fooling anyone, so quit being a doucher and write about anything relevant. April fools is for little kids and for those who live in their mother’s basement. The rest of us have real jobs and a life and don’t have time for this kind of malarkey. Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula.

  • Mark April 1, 2014 at 11:38 am

    This idea is beyond horrendous…..I come here because I’m a PHILLY sports fan. I don’t want to sift through shit I don’t care about, pertaining to the Redskins, Orioles, Wizards, and Capitals. If I wanted that, I would go to If this is for real, I forsee it royally backfiring and you losing a ton of your PHILLY-loyal readers that have been coming to this site for years… me. Terrible idea!

  • Larry Andersen April 1, 2014 at 11:42 am

    1984 wants their curtains back….

  • Stop Reproducing April 1, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    I don’t know what’s worse, the most unfunny April Fools joke ever or the fucking retards that actually think it’s true.

  • Budweiser April 1, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    Man you got some jacked nostrils. They are all flared up!

  • Big Daddy April 1, 2014 at 10:13 pm

    Seriously folks, Ryan is my nephew. Can’t you see the resemblance?
