The Sixers are 31-25, in the midst of their longest winning streak since January of 2012, and haven’t lost at the Wells Fargo Center in over two months. In fact, Philly sports teams are straight up kicking ass right now. Check out this neat little factoid, courtesy of Crossing Broad’s own Anthony SanFilippo:
@JoyOnBroad Philadelphia professional sports teams since 2/4/18:
The Eagles officially ripped a hole the size of Texas in the space/time continuum.

If all of that wasn’t reason enough to make you feel, uh, firm—there’s now also this:
Carson Wentz will be ringing the bell at the Sixers-Magic game tomorrow night. Pro tip: Hit it with the cane and let freedom ring.

Carson Wentz to ring the bell?! Let freedom ring, indeed. It should make for yet another awesome night in the midst of what is, by far, the greatest month in the history of Philly sports. Good luck, Orlando.
I imagine when the lights drop and Wentz walks onto the court tomorrow night that the noise generated by what should be a boisterous and eager crowd might blow the top off the Wells Fargo Center, but what the hell do I know? That’s why I asked 76ers game day presentation crew member Dan Sieck–the guy who actually rolls the bell onto the floor–what he expects.
