Leo Interviews Vince “The Invincible” Papale on TSP Radio

July 10th, 2019 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, General, Interviews, PhillyWood, TSP Radio

In TalkSportsPhilly’s history I had a chance to talk with and interview Vince Papale on TalkSportsPhilly radio.  Vince has a lot of great advice to bestow in his book and in the interview.  I was impressed on how humble and friendly Vince is, he has a genuine interest in others and their success.  The “Invincible” movie very much similar to TalkSportsPhilly’s bid to talk sports and entertainment in Philadelphia.

In this interview we talk about his book “Be Invincible”, the movie, the Eagles, and future projects for Vince.  So take a listen and enjoy what Vince has to say.

The Phils will have you seeing Red this year

That’s right, the Phillies will make you see red this year.  No, not out of anger, well maybe, but this will actually be from their uniforms.  For the first time in eight years the team is gonna throw a curve ball out to the fans and bring the red jersey out of the closet.

The new red jersey will be combined with the white pinstipped pants for 6 games this year.  The Phillies have philliesred1been known to throw in the oddball jersey every once in a while.  The last time they had the red jerseys was back in 1999 for a promotion, and then again back in 1979 when they had the all burgundy jerseys.

Whatever they wear, lets hope it brings home a few wins this year.

July 26th, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Report: Five teams interested in Hamels, Dodgers and Rangers emerge as “favorites” | Filed in Baseball, MLB, Phillies

(Updates at the bottom)

Coming off of an unbelievable no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs yesterday, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that trade talk would increase for Cole Hamels immediately after. It was reported on Friday that the Cubs had made the Phillies an offer that included Javier Baez and Starlin Castro.

According to FOXSports.com MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal, the market seems to be expanding for Hamels:

Jahlil Okafor was the right pick for the Sixers

June 28th, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Jahlil Okafor was the right pick for the Sixers | Filed in General, NBA, Sixers

The NBA Draft came and went on Thursday night, and one thing remained the same from the previous two drafts, the Philadelphia 76ers added another cornerstone to their rebuilding process. With the third pick in the NBA Draft the Sixers selected Duke center Jahlil Okafor.

Okafor was selected after Karl-Anthony Towns was selected first overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves, and D’Angelo Russell was taken by the Los Angeles Lakers second overall. There were many who wanted the Sixers to end up with Russell, as he has the potential to be a star guard in the league. However, the Sixers did not land the Ohio State guard, and the team gladly took the 6′ 11″, 272 lb 19 year old center who has tremendous upside.

In what many believe is becoming a guards league in the “new NBA”, Okafor is a old-school big man who has a flurry of low post moves and dominates in the post. There are some who believe Okafor has the footwork and skill-set to be the best true big man to come into the league since Tim Duncan.

One of those believers just happens to be one of Tim Duncan’s teammates and mentors, David Robinson:

With ten days remaining until all eyes are on Chicago, this will be my second and final NFL Mock Draft. Between the time of my first mock, and the publishing of this one, I have gone over a lot of aspects that go into draft selections.  I have micro-analyzed pretty much every aspect of every team in the draft. There have been some significant changes made to this version.

#1- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston (QB/Florida State)

I still believe that Winston is the best option for the Bucs here. His athleticism is extraordinary, and if he can overcome his off-field immaturity, Winston will be a force in the NFL.

#2- Tennessee Titans: Leonard Williams (DT/USC)
