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…

Last weekend I went to the XFE 31 MMA fights at Harrah’s and I have to say I was impressed with the quality and crowd at the event.  Philadelphia has a rich tradition of fighting here in the City of Brotherly Love and MMA fits right in with that tradition.  The arena was a caged ring with a walkway to the ring for the fighters entrance into the ring.  The crowd was pumped up to see a great fight card with a total of nine fights.

The XFE (Xtreme Fight Events) holds MMA events around the region and has XFE 32 on December 14th in Bethlehem, PA and another event on the 18th in Bethlehem as well.  Tickets can be bought thru the XFE website.

There was plenty of action to be had and the fights saw some heavy hitting, KO’s, and submissions throughout the bouts.  Here is a listing of the fight card and the outcomes of each bout.

During the fights I had a chance to shoot some video of the action, here are a few clips from XFE 31: Vengeance: (more…)

Eagles make Reid look like Genius

Lets put on the spare!

The air in the tires has definitely leaked out in Philly leaving the Philadelphia Eagles Nation feeling flat after the 26-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this week.  The score does not reflect the domination of the Eagles by the Chiefs and their new coach Andy Reid.  It was just an ugly game for the Eagles that included 3 fumbles lost, 2 interceptions, 5 sacks of Vick and 3-10 in 3rd down efficiency.

The Chiefs could have scored a lot more than they did if their offense was working on all cylinders and had to settle for 4 field goals after going 1-6 in the Red Zone yesterday.  Chip Kelly and the Eagles need to produce a win next week to keep the Eagles hopes alive and the fan base from being demoralized so early in the season.

The game had special significance for the return of Andy Reid and the retiring of Donovan McNabb’s number and the excitement about the game could be felt all around the stadium.  We had a chance to interview several of the fans and enjoy the pre-game festivities of the Eagle Nation, which turned out to be the best part of the day for the fans.  Take a look at the interviews in the video below.

Dallas Braden – Alex Rodriguez Feud

May 8th, 2010 by Christian | 10 Comments | Filed in Baseball, General, MLB, Phillies, Video

Not sure how many of you are following this story, but Alex Rodriguez and A’s pitcher Dallas Braden have been embroiled in a mild feud and exchanging words in the press after A-roid ran across the mound after making an out back on April 22nd.

The video below shows the incident and Braden’s comments after the game.

Things have heated up a bit since then…

“There are things that are going to have to happen,” Braden told CSN Bay Area. “Out of respect to my teammates, out of respect to the game. I think he’s probably garnered a new respect for the unwritten rules and the people who hold them close to their game. But I think you’re right, we don’t do much talking in the 209.”

Braden was referring to Stockton, Calif., known as 209, where he is from and attended high school.
