Thursday, February 28, 2013, 1:05 AM

Keswick Tavern hosts all-female wing-eating contest

Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 1:45 PM
For the sake of full disclosure, I went to Tuesday night's all-female wing-eating competition to cheer on my little sister, Victoria, but I left with the knowledge that those girls can eat a heck of a lot more than I can. What started as some friendly trash-talking during an all-you-can-eat wing night... Read more

Sixers find low point; sink lower

Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 8:37 AM
The Sixers' hopes of making the playoffs crawled out of a river in New Jersey yesterday, and boy, they did NOT look good.

Video: Remember when Simon Gagne and the Flyers made history?

Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 5:08 PM
Simon Gagne, reacquired Tuesday by the Flyers, played a major role in the team's 2010 Stanley Cup run - even though they came up short against the Blackhawks in the Finals. He did, however, provide one of the greatest moments in Flyers' history, a moment so great that it was memorialized by the NHL... Read more

Phillies' Domonic Brown hits mammoth home run, laughs at Miguel Cabrera

Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 3:55 PM
Yesterday, Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera hit a monster home run of Phillies' closer Jonathan Papelbon. In what was an obvious attempt to show up Cabrera, Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown took a 7th inning pitch from Yankees pitcher Zach Nuding, a 22-year-old non-roster invitee, and put it into orbit...
