Yes, it's the worst year in Philadelphia sports history

Yes, it's the worst year in Philadelphia sports history

The Eagles are 4-4 and injury-riddled. They've blown two easy wins. The Phillies collapsed down the stretch, didn't fire Matt Klentak or Gabe Kapler, and have now not won the World Series in ten years. 

The Flyers are a disaster, and the Sixers want us to be excited because last year's #1 overall draft pick sometimes hits one three-pointer per game. And after those two losses, I don't think I've ever been more disappointed in a Penn State football coach. 

It has been, with only a couple of exceptions, the worst year ever in Philadelphia sports. 

Yes, I know what you're going to say. Didn't the Eagles win the Super Bowl just nine months ago? Didn't Villanova win the national championship just seven months ago? 

Please.

Frankly, I'm sick of hearing these arguments all the time. Stop being complacent! Stop living in the past! What's the point of even being a fan, if we're constantly thinking about last year? 

But then Tuesday, we got the worst news of all: WIP has cancelled Wing Bowl

Sure, the Eagles traded for Golden Tate. But obviously, that was merely a distraction from the Wing Bowl news. 

I don't know what I'll miss most about Wing Bowl. The costumes? The girls? The vomiting? The in-studio eating stunts, which resulted in some of the best radio of all time? The strip club after-parties that start at 10 a.m. on a weekday?  All of that, gone forever. Where am I supposed to go to drink at 6 in the morning on the Friday before the Super Bowl? Home? 

We'll always have our memories. El Wingador's run. Kobayashi's debut. The time they kept showing the video of Chris Christie falling out of his chair. 

But I wasn't ready for this. It's hard to believe that I'll never again get to make a McNabb joke the first time a Wing Bowl contender vomits. 

Other Philly sports takes: 

• Do you know why the Phillies blew it down the stretch? Analytics. Do you know why the Eagles have disappointed so far this year? Analytics. Do you why WIP got rid of Wing Bowl? You guessed it, analytics. 

• Congrats to the Red Sox, on Boston's first- and only- sports championship in 2018. 

• My Phillies offseason plan: 1) Sign Harper, Machado and Kershaw. 2) Trade Odubel Herrera and Carlos Santana for Mike Trout. 3) Fire Gabe Kapler and hire Lenny Dykstra. 

• So the Flyers have a team that isn't as exciting as their mascot? So what. That's been true of the Phillies for 35 of the last 40 years. 

• This Sixers season, the most important question to ask is: Joel Embiid or Ben Simmons? It's absolutely necessary for us to pit the two of them against each other and choose one, and whichever of them wins, pit him against Carson Wentz.

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.
