I feel like I’ve used this meme far too often lately, probably because Philly sports team are just bad enough that their being in contention is basically an ongoing punchline… but, the Flyers are now four points out of a playoff spot following their two “huge wins” this weekend:
Still, they’ll have to catch the Bruins, who have a game in hand. We know how this ends, right?

Rough Friday for Howard Eskin. First, there’s this photoshop which I’m still enjoying, courtesy of (@ForrealiouslyDoe). And then Hinkie went IN-STUDIO with Mike Missanelli, who, unlike with his thoughts on new media, nailed it.
I’m OK with the trades, but the more I think about it, the more disheartened I become that the Sixers, for the second year in a row (remember, they used their first round draft picks last year on guys who won’t play this year), are kicking the can down the road. It may work, but eventually you’ve got to settle on some players you want to build around. They just hit reset at the point guard position, again. It’s maybe the right move, but patience will eventually run out if even the young guys you should pay to see are pawns in this whole thing.

When it’s OK to read a Kindle at a sporting events:
A local startup is trying to create a broadband alternative to Comcast and Verizon, which sounds great until customers even remotely concerned about privacy realize that their home Wifi signal is going through a coffee shop, and that signal strength gets pounded when everyone is trying to watch Netflix at once.
Roy Williams is such a dick. This transition from talking about his tribute to Dean Smith to ripping UNC fans:
Dom Brown says his teammates weren’t on the same page last year. They might not even be reading from the same book.
Hey remember that Cuban guy the Phillies were kicking the tires on? Yep, Red Sox.
