The Washington Capitals' parade looked OK, I guess

I'm admitedly not the most hardcore of Flyers fans, so perhaps watching the celebration down in Washington, DC was tougher for those among us whose blood is a bit more orange. But I must say, the Capitals party over the past few days looked pretty OK to me.

It also reminded me a bit of what an absolute bonkers and joyous time we had here in Philadelphia back in February. There's something to be said for a city ending an incredibly long and painful championship draught. The party is a little extra.

Alex Ovechkin reached Jason Kelce status over the past few days. Heck, he may have surpassed it. Maybe his podium moment wasn't as poetic but we have to get Kelce to do some laps in the fountains on the Ben Franklin Parkway one of these days. That looked fun as hell.

Also, they just seemed to have had a whole lot of beer down there, which is OK:

But because, after all, it's DC we're talking about: their crowd size wasn't the most impressive.

That's all I got. Congrats, Caps fans, I guess. Good party.

Rocky and Adonis return to Philadelphia in new Creed II trailer

The latest chapter in the Rocky Balboa saga is coming to theatres this Thanksgiving and the trailer for it dropped this morning.

Creed II picks up with Michael B. Jordan reprising his role as Apollo Creed's son, Adonis, coming to grips with fighting someone with the last name Drago — clearly a flashback to his father getting killed in the ring at the hands of Russian Ivan Drago.

Sly Stallone returns as the old and wise Rocky Balboa, dropping knowledge bombs instead of left hooks.

At least part of the movie takes place in Philadelphia, with a skyline shot showing up in the trailer. The first Creed movie had plenty of Philly flavor, so we're hoping we'll get a bit more in the sequel. 

Fan recreates Eagles Super Bowl ring out of sand

Fan recreates Eagles Super Bowl ring out of sand

Here’s another story brought to you by the fact that the Eagles are Super Bowl champions.

Remember that gorgeous ring the team received last week? Well, someone made a replica completely out of sand.

That’s pretty impressive work and it’s awesome to see that Stefen Wisniewski is so proud of his ring that he’s wearing it to the beach. His former teammate and "Philly Special" QB, Trey Burton, is questioning that decision, though.

After the ring ceremony, Wisniewski posted this to his Twitter account, a heartfelt story about what the ring means to him.

The guys on the Eagles just get it. Throughout this journey that brought Philadelphia its first Super Bowl trophy, the players have put the fans first and taken everyone along for this incredible ride. It’s awesome to see a story like this where a Super Bowl champion is so proud to share his new ring with a fan.
