Phillies burn radio station that asked if we're sick of the Phanatic

Phillies burn radio station that asked if we're sick of the Phanatic

Are you sick of the Phillie Phanatic?

That was a rhetorical question. Of course you're not.

He's a pelvis-shaking, popcorn-dumping, Tommy Lasorda pest of a hero to us all here in Philadelphia.

97.5 The Fanatic decided to tempt fate Tuesday afternoon and dare pose the question if we're sick of the Phanatic.

Welp, the responses went just as you think they would have gone (click through for yourself).

But the best response came the Phillies themselves. Drink this one in:

The mic? It has been dropped.

Today's lesson, kiddos: Don't mess with the Phillie Phanatic.

Howard, Rollins, Utley, Manuel connected again in fun way

This was pretty darn cool.

The core members from the greatest run in Phillies franchise history were all connected in a way on Wednesday night.

Jimmy Rollins, who has been performing in-studio analysis for TBS during the MLB postseason, was joined by special guest Ryan Howard.

The ballgame they watched and analyzed? Game 4 of the Dodgers-Cubs NLCS, featuring old friend and teammate Chase Utley.

And then beloved former manager Charlie Manuel joined the fun. Let's just say he was a fan of the TBS crew.

Next season marks the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 world champion club.

Let's hope all four can reunite at Citizens Bank Park next season for the festivities.

That'll be special.

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.

We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.

But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.

This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?

Well, Twitter had a field day with it.

Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.

It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
