Every rule has an exception. The rule of adults not bringing a glove to the ballpark because it’s ridiculous, unnecessary, and stupid? This is the exception. If you bring a Bill Brasky-sized glove to the ballpark that’s big enough to catch a pop-fly basketball then it’s not stupid. It’s awesome and so are you.

Welcome Alexa from the University of Delaware. Nothing wrong with a little Blue Hen heat every once in awhile. Would actually love it if it were more than once in a blue moon. Get on it, DE.
Should be able to see Alexa and other smokes at the Barstool Blackout tour as it returns to Philly this Friday. Click here and get your tix now before it sells out. ALL SMOKESHOWS GET IN FOR FREE.
Remember to do your Stoolie duty email the Facebook links of Smokeshow nominations to Phillytips@barstoolsports.com
10-10, baby!!!! Can you say playoffs?!?!
But you have to give credit where credit is due. The Phils actually put together very impressive back to back wins at LA the past two nights winning 7-0 and 3-2, respectively. Granted, that’s after a stretch of games (sans the 10-9 win in the last game vs. the Rockies) in which they literally couldn’t hit dick, but it’s good they’re playing somewhat competitive ball. And with pretty boy Cole curing his tender biceps injury from lifting all those baseballs, who knows what can happen? Maybe this team can even end up at .500! Golly gee.
PS – Cliff Lee has been absolutely majestic since his first start:
At least someone is earning his 16th highest paid player in the world money. Not really, but whatever. Trade bait baby.

Hey, I’m not going to hate on these guys at all. There’s been an effort from Philadelphia sports franchises to show people Brotherly Love, but it seems like certain Eagles are showing their faces more in this city than anyone else. If you’re out in CC you regularly see the likes of Kelce, Barwin and Riley Cooper out and about mingling with the common folk. A rare feat for millionaires these days. And unlike Pat Burrell, they’re actually approachable without having to worry about your ego or woman being fisted.
PS – Those shirts were given out at the game. Of course Connor Barwin would be the guy who immediately rips off the sleeves to any T. Of course he is.
Much like our heroic bus fight video Monday, this might be one of the most inspiring Russian dash cam clips we’ve ever posted. Suspense, intrigue, danger, a car chase, violence, domestic violence, an alcohol-induced Fencing Response, heroism — it has it all. This 3 1/2-minute Russian dash cam video is the must-see mini movie event of mid-afternoon Wednesday. Don’t miss it.
PS – Have Russian people ever seen the sun?
Two days. Just over 48 hours. That’s all we have until utter hell is released at District N9NE. If you’ve been there before then you know what kind of mayhem to expect. If you haven’t, you can’t fathom the chaos and quality of smokes you’re missing. These tatties will be there as will many of her friends. Pick it up and get your tickets to Friday’s show now before it sells out.
Local Hero Faces To Up To 115 Years In Prison After Scamming Comcast To Save Subscribers $2.4 Million
arstechnica – Two men pleaded guilty to a scam that lowered the bills of 5,790 Comcast customers in Pennsylvania by a total of $2.4 million. They now face prison time and will have to pay their ill-gotten wealth back to Comcast. 30-year-old Richard Justin Spraggins of Philadelphia pleaded guilty in February and was “ordered to make $66,825 in restitution and serve an 11- to 23-month sentence,” the Times-Herald of Norristown wrote at the time. Scaggins was described as the second-in-command of the operation. The accused ringleader, 30-year-old Alston Buchanan, pleaded guilty last week. “Buchanan faces up to 57½ to 115 years in prison, although Buchanan will likely serve a lesser sentence than the maximum,” the newspaper wrote. There is no agreed-upon sentence—the judge will decide how long Buchanan will spend in prison and how much he’ll have to pay back. “Comcast lost $2.4 million and it will be up to the judge to see how much the defendant will be required to pay back,” prosecutor Jeremy Lupo said.
If ever there should be a Kickstarter…started…it should be for these two protectors of the common man. They have the technological know-how and balls of steel to swipe over $2 million away from one of the most ruthless corporations in America and they just give it away? Lower people’s cable bills instead of taking the cash grab? That’s 21st century Robin Hood legend status.
Really a shame that our court system is controlled by big money or else these guys when judged by 12 of their peers might’ve actually walked free. No way 12 middle-class people throw a guy in jail forever for stealing money from a company whose whole purpose is to steal money. Shame that’s not the world we live in. Instead these guys will…who the hell knows? Kabletown will probably grind their bones into a fine powder then have their board members snort it off a cable box for fun at the next company party.
Thanks for the free HBO, guys. Don’t get murdered in prison!
Slack a couple days and everything goes haywire. The Philly Patriots are now comfortably in the fan lead and have more talent than we do. Spencer Hawes has been MIA as have the majority of the NBA guys. So here is our final push. LAST WEEK of recruiting.
Did you ever play D1 / EuroLeague / Semi-Pro / Professional basketball? Do you know someone who has? Is this person in need of $50,000 for four games of basketball? If yes — get familiar with the team. Email us at email@example.com and we’ll take it from there.
We’ve already got one of the tourney’s best PGs, a shooter, and two of the best PFs…we just need to round out the roster with talent. We’d love to do it with Philly local guys, but anybody who loves hoop and money is eligible.
Also — somebody is gonna win $25,000, free sneakers or a decade, a trip for 10 to Vegas, and all types of other stuff. If you become a fan of our team you’re automatically entered to win. The more points you get the more chances you have. Would love to see Stoolies walk away with all this stuff.
