10 years ago Philadelphia invaded Jacksonville to play and puke against the Patriots.
10 years ago Philadelphia invaded Jacksonville to play and puke against the Patriots. That’s was it. The only freaking Super Bowl most of us have (and possibly will) ever seen them play. Just thinking about it makes me nostalgic and then angry. T.O. had the city by the balls then proceeded to put them in a vice. WHY WERE THEY TAKING THEIR SWEET OL’ TIME WITH A COUPLE MINUTES LEFT DOWN BY 2 SCORES??? Sure, they had their best shot to take it down in 2002 vs. the Bucs at the last game at the Vet but blew it because there’s no such thing as fairy tale endings in this town. Still doesn’t make the loss vs. the Pats hurt any less.
Please, Chip, just get me 1. God knows I don’t ask you for much.
Can't wait until we're still saying "undefeated since the ASG" come June.
Flyers 1, Leafs 0
The Flyers are currently on a 4-game winning streak and they haven’t lost since the All Star break. If this trend continues, by my calculations, the Philadelphia Flyers will be your 2015 Stanley Cup Champions. Forget all that #TankForMcDavid talk, we’re gearing up for a parade down Broad, bitches. The Flyers are the closest thing to a chick with daddy issues that a professional hockey team can be. One minute they’re hot as shit going on 4-game win streaks. The next minute they’re an absolute train wreck and all you can hope for is one of their friends to take them home from the bar and the hell away from society. But it is what it is. I’ll enjoy the win streaks now and despise them once the Flyers solidify their 10th overall pick in the draft.
Del Zotto On A Million-Game (6) Point Streak
Are 3 goals and 4 assists in the past 6 games good? Like is that something that you’d be looking for in a hockey player or am I just an idiot? All you “Del Zaster” clowns can go eat a big ol’ bag of dicks because MDZ is the hottest defenseman in the league right now. How he was ever a healthy scratch will never cease to baffle me. Not only is the scoring production there, but he’s been playing solid D as well. Not the greatest defense you’d ever see in your lifetime but for sure more than good enough when you combine it with his offensive skills. 2-way hockey.
Stone Cold Steven Mason III
I’m convinced that Steve Mason is a really good goaltender in the National Hockey League. I just wish it didn’t seem at times that he was made of glass, because if he could stay healthy over the next few seasons, watch out. Last night was Mase Daddy’s 100th game as a Flyer and capping it off with a shutout was a beauty move. But seriously, Steve. Please be careful out there because you scare the living shit out of me. I love Zepp and Emery as humans, but it’s a different story when they’re inbetween the pipes.
Pork Chops and Simmer Play Their 500th Career Games
Both Jake Voracek and Wayne Simmonds played their 500th career games last night. So I just figured that’s a good enough excuse to re-visit this awesome exchange from the preseason.
Is JJ Watt training for a bout with Ivan Drago? It wouldn't surprise me if he was.
UltimateTexans – Watt rewarded himself and honored his MVP-caliber year with a very Watt-like move: A new log cabin in the “middle of nowhere” Wisconsin. “It’s really minimalistic,” Watt said. “The only thing I have to focus on is training and that’s the way I like it. There’s no frills, there’s nothing to distract you up here.” His description of his new offseason home: “It’s just an empty space and a log cabin and snow.” Watt plans to build a gym in his cabin’s barn. Other than that, his new offseason getaway will be comparable to his 2014 training setup, which found Watt sleeping in his friend’s dining room while he devoted himself to daily improvement. “It basically is who I am,” Watt said. “My friends said if we were to look at a house that’s you, (the cabin) is it.”
Boss. I think it may be physically impossibly to not like JJ Watt or want him on your team. He’s not only the best physical player in the league but has the perfect attitude to boot. He eats, sleeps and breathes football. No partying or playing grab ass on the side. Just the game. Plus the guy is more beast than man at this point. I can’t imagine what a couple months living with wolves and surviving off the land is going to do with his psyche. Or maybe JJ is simply training for a bout with Ivan Drago. It wouldn’t surprise me if he actually was.
A Skittles and 20 "I graduated from Stanford" references away from perfect mimicry.
Solid. A Skittles and 20 “I graduated from Stanford” references away from perfect mimicry.
Also, it legitimately depresses me Richard Sherman was drafted in the 5th round. We’ll never get over the whole Earl Thomas debacle, but guess who was drafted by the Eagles ahead of Sherman in 2011? Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett, CB Curtish March, Casey Matthews, K (I repeat, a KICKER in the 4th round) Alex Henery and Dion Lewis – who was selected 5 picks before Sir Richard. Fuck. Everything.
Oh, and Byron Maxwell was drafted in the 6th round of that very same draft. THANKS ANDY.
$35 all the beer and wings you can handle. And my gullet is going to bankrupt the place.
The Fieldhouse is opening up their hearts to our misery to watch the Patriots or Seahawks win another Super Bowl. $35 unlimited brews and wings. Not gonna find a better deal than that around town. Plus there will be a stellar crowd at one of Philly’s best sports bars on 12th and Filbert. No reason to not come, say hi and get plastered with your fellow depressed Philadelphians.
Contact Maura at email@example.com and mention Barstool to lock up your spots. BY PENNSYLVANIA LAW YOU HAVE TO RESERVE A TABLE TO GET IN ON THE OPEN BAR. So that’s kind of important. Also, be an American. It’s the Super Bowl. $35 all the beer and wings you can handle. And my gullet is going to bankrupt the place. No reason not to do it.
Sometimes the only way you can feel good about yourself is by making someone else look bad. And I'm tired of making other people feel good about themselves.
This was buried in the post about the emcee getting sucker punched to the moon, but Biceps deserves the right to stand out on his own. Sometimes the only way you can feel good about yourself is by making someone else look bad. And I’m tired of making other people feel good about themselves.
See, I have no experience but I’m a big fan of money. I like it, I use it, I have a little. I keep it in a jar on top of my refrigerator. I’d like to put more in that jar. That’s where Draftkings comes in. $20 nets you $20K. A wiser investment I do not know.

Dude essentially came for 20 minutes, collected his paycheck, then went to whatever mobile home clothesline he took that shirt from.
So we were at Wing Bowl last night/today and may need the next couple lives to recover. Lots of good footage, video coming soon, blah blah blah, but I wanted to touch on Mick Foley doing the definition of “Showing Up”. I don’t know what I was expecting. I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest wrestling guy in the world. If Nate were there he’d grab onto his leg like a leech and wouldn’t let go until Foley hired him as his full-time fluffer. To each their own. But this dude essentially came for 20 minutes, collected his paycheck, then went to whatever mobile home clothesline he took that shirt from. The man couldn’t even share his daughter with the masses. And I can’t exactly blame him for Irish Exiting out of there. By 8 am my legs were jello, the drunks were restless and the place smelled like the perfect concoction of puke and chlamydia. But still, I was expecting a little more out of this wrestling legend than showing up, doing a pre-arranged hack act and going on his merry way. Again, his daughter would have made a nice sacrifice to the savages in attendance.
