TSP Radio and Talk Radio Podcasts, 10th Anniversary

April 22nd, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in 94WIP, Events, General, Interviews, TSP Radio

Well, as most know who follow TalkSportsPhilly on the Internet and our various adventures in the Sports World of Philadelphia and Beyond, it is TSP’s 10th Anniversary year.  And what a year it has been, saying sarcastically :).  Over the years we have done different podcasts on a variety of subjects and guests.  It hasn’t been the mainstay for TSP like the Internet and Social Media but another outlet of content for sports in a different format.  A few co-hosts even moved on to larger broadcasts and continue in Sports today.

TSP would like to Thank all that supported, participated, contributed, and read and listened over the last 10 years and will be here for many years to come.

Below is a Radio Player with a lot of different episodes on it if you want to take a listen, just Sports Talk:

ENJOY!

Riley Cooper N-Word Controversy

January 1st, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in 94WIP, Eagles, General, NFL, Video

Thinking about all the Racism and Discrimination as the main topic of this year’s discussions besides COVID-19 has brought back the thought of the Riley Cooper incident at Lincoln Financial Field.  It garnered a lot of attention then for insensitivity, I wonder what people think of this now during the current climate??

Leave your thoughts in a comment if you wish…

TalkSportsPhilly does not support Racism of any kind…

Report: Jordan Howard healthy, ready to play

TSP Eagles Analysis by 94 WIP

As I read this article by Eliot Shorr-Parks, I inquired to him earlier about comment and talk about the last Eagles game, Eliot never got back to TSP to answer, We do agree that Howard coming back will plug a huge whole in the Eagles lineup.  A strong runner is the key to opening up this whole Eagles offense, what there is left of it though. Lets keep our fingers crossed and TSP thanks Eliot and 94WIP for their contribution to this article, hopefully further collaboration happens in the future.  Another Game review will be released before game on Sunday against the Giants.  Happy Holidays to all!

NFL Draft Day Is Here … in Movie Form, at Least

April 14th, 2014 by Jim Chesko | Comments Off on NFL Draft Day Is Here … in Movie Form, at Least | Filed in 94WIP, Football, General, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

nfldraft

If you’re a hardcore fan of the National Football League, there is perhaps no more-anticipated out-of-season day than Day One of the draft. Who will go No. 1?  How many trades will be made? (Will the Eagles take a wide receiver with their Round One pick?)

Well, we’ll have to wait until May 8 for those answers in the real world, but in the meantime we have the new movie “Draft Day,” directed by Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters,” “Meatballs,” “Stripes,” “Dave”),  about a pro football executive in crisis mode on the big day.  That executive is Sonny Weaver Jr., fictional general manager of the long-suffering Cleveland Browns, son of Browns recently deceased former coach Sonny Weaver Sr., whom – it turns out – Junior had fired. Yes, he fired his father!

The Browns GM is played by Kevin Costner, who – with this football flick – checks off another sport in his filmography, which already included baseball (“Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams,” “For Love of the Game”), bike racing (“American Flyers”), golf (“Tin Cup”) and, of course, dancing with wolves!    (more…)

Pat The Bat Retires **UPDATE**

April 12th, 2012 by Mike H. | 1 Comment | Filed in 94WIP, Baseball, General, MLB, Phillies

Thanks for the memories!

Pat Burrell has decided to call it a career. He’s been plagued by a chronic foot injury for years. Burrell played in 12 seasons for the Phillies, Rays, and Giants winning World Series rings with the Phillies (2008) and the Giants (2010). He finished his career eight home runs shy of 300 and 24 RBIs from 1000. While Burrell isn’t a sure fire Hall of Famer, he has a very good chance to make the Phillies Wall of Fame. Burrell finished his Phillies career on top winning a World Series, leading the parade with Elvis (his dog), and compiling a .257/.367/.485 career line with 251 home runs and 827 runs batted in.  On behalf of all of at TSP, thanks for the memories and good luck in all of your future endeavors.

**UPDATE** Pat Burrell will leave his baseball career the same way he entered it, as a Philadelphia Phillie. Burrell is set to sign a one day contract, so that he can retire a member of the organization that drafted, developed, and made him a star. The Phillies are also preparing a special event on May 19th for Burrell. Pride of the Phillies print for all fans in attendance? Who knows.

Missanelli Just Can’t Help Himself

February 29th, 2012 by Johnny G | 2 Comments | Filed in 94WIP, General, Interviews, Sports

It’s becoming more and more evident that Missanelli just doesn’t get it. How much more can one person regurgitate the same information? Why won’t he just answer the questions based on his article on Sunday? I’ve already proven that the links he sent me STILL have the same information I corrected him with. This is just getting too hard to believe. Here is the next around with Mike Missanelli:

From: Mike Missanelli

To: John Gallante

Hahaha. You dont think Im very knowledgeable? You have any idea what my background is? You should do some research. I was a newspaper reporter for the Inquirer for 10 years. Editor in chief of a sports magazine, a TV sports anchor, a talk radio host for more than 15 years now, a college professor who teaches a course in Sports Law, and an attorney. I feel sorry for kids like you. You’re just a kid. You need to grow up.
