Ryan Howard sells his incredible mansion for a record amount

Ryan Howard made about $190 million during his Major League Baseball career, which is enough to buy one of the most amazing houses you’ve ever seen. He sold that house on Thursday for the most money a home in residential Tampa has ever been sold for, $16.5 million.

Howard had the home built four years ago on 200 feet of private beach that he purchased for $3.5 million, according to the Tampa Bay Times, and sold the house Thursday to real estate investor Ben Mallah as a 15-year anniversary gift for his wife. 

Must be nice.

The previous record sale in Tampa was $11.18 million two years ago, so the former MVP is now the undisputed real estate king in Tampa.

About the house: It sits on two-and-a-half acres and includes some ridiculous features, like a moat, bowling alley, two-story library and Howard’s trophy room, which was full of his accomplishments from his career as a Phillie.

WFTS in Tampa posted a gallery in which you can see more than 100 photos inside Howard’s home, but here are some of the best ones that display just how incredible this house really is.

Now retired from baseball, and a venture capitalist with Seventysix Capital, Howard hasn’t given any indication about where he may be moving, but it'll be hard to find a place as beautiful as the one he just left. Howard will, however, be back in Philadelphia on July 14 as the Phillies will hold a retirement ceremony in his honor.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
