I think ESPN site crashed! Can't get it to work

Try watching in on the ESPN app on your phone if you can. I have it on now, halftime.

“This fits the stereotype of Philadelphia fans as aggressive, demanding fans that are willingRead More to cheer injuries and boo Santa,” For the love of pete, hasn't the statute of limitations run out on the booing Santa thing. I am 43, and this did not occur in my lifetime, please stop bringing it up every time you want to demonstrate that Philly fans are bad people. I'm willing to bet the writer knows nothing about why Santa was booed.

The study doesnt measure passion and knowledge which is a more accurate statement about PhilliesRead More fans. Fans Boo when their Teams or certain players are not giving 100% effort. Regarding the "Throwing snowballs at Santa story" Truth be told. That Santa Claus was a Living " Bad Santa ". He was an alcoholic acting lewdly at the game. Fans were calling him out for his bad behaviour and others pelted him with snowballs for acting like an ass. I met Bad Santas son at a Phillies game several years ago who told me his Father was a drunk and deserved the public flogging that he received. I hope this report gets back to the National Media but that will never happen. I have been too many sporting events in other cities and have seen many indiscretions committed by their fans...Cursing, intimidating or starting fights with fans rooting for the opposition, public drunkeness, throwing stuff on the field.There is no better city in this country to attend a game than Philadelphia with its knowledable, passionate fans.

Boy, I'd really like to slug the guy who came up with this..... (Seriously though, for $189M, ifRead More you had a team that can't beat the Cubs in a series --- or anybody else for that matter --- wouldn't *you* be a little "aggressive and demanding?")

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

First off, it's not our team. For those of us who live in Allegheny County the local team is theRead More Pittsburgh Stealers and the Pittsburgh Stealers is the Rooney family's team. Even though the taxpayers in Allegheny County are picking up much of the cost of Heinz Field they have no say in the management of the team and are reaping no financial rewards if the team does well. The Rooneys make the managerial decisions and are richly rewarded finacially because the nim-wits in Pittsburgh will pay big bucks for seat licenses at Heinz Field and exorbitant amounts for tickets to watch the Stealers engage in the brutal game of football! Talk about cults - I wonder what kind of kool aid the Stealer Nation is drinking!

Why are we getting Philly news on a Pgh community site.? What hapened to local coverage?. That isRead More what made Patch such a unique useable site.
PS April 7, 2014 at 04:13 pm
Something must be linked wrong with this story because your Pittsburgh comments are showing up onRead More our Philly suburb patch...
Mike Jones April 7, 2014 at 04:50 pm
There's nothing wrong. This is the new delocalized Patch. They've cross-published this story to allRead More websites in Pennsylvania. That's why you're seeing everyone's comments. For some reason, the people in New York City think we Pittsburghers give a hoot about the Phillies getting rained out.
It's our national pastime. Should it be a national holiday, too? (Patch file photo)

Forget the time - the kid played high school basketball, which was against the rules. He took theRead More opportunity to win 10K from someone else and gets rewarded for it. Lame.
Gina TB February 20, 2014 at 11:24 pm
If he had to make the shots on the 1st try then why did they allow him the 2nd shot? after heRead More missed the 1st half court shot that should have been the end. Publicity shot or not i commend Pizza Hut for stepping up to award him the $10k. I hope that Jack uses that money and pays if forward some day.
ron February 21, 2014 at 02:17 pm
They did not let him take a second shot. The ball just took a bounce right back to him so he quickRead More threw up a second shot. The bottom line was he lost and that should have been the end of it. There should have been no whining or complaining. Maybe Pizza Hut should give 10K to all the prior contestants whom lost but at least followd the rules and did not complain.
Pirates to Host Big Screen Watch Party Outside PNC Park Thursday. Photo: Andy Cook
Roger October 2, 2013 at 09:04 pm
The lack of a venue for Tuesday night's game, and the venue intended for Thursday night's gameRead More clearly reveal the animosity between the Steelers and Pirates. The reason cited for lack of a showing of Tuesday night's Wild Card game was "No place ...." Were the Steelers so hard-hearted to the Pirates not to work out something? Certainly, the Steelers had plenty of space to provide a venue. No, it may have not been right out side PNC Park, but very close by. Is the animosity between these two professional sports organizations this strong as to not work together to make something more happen than a 15' X 20' screen? How pathetic.
B October 2, 2013 at 11:10 pm
Many of the employees of PNC park are also those of Heinz field. To open a stadium isn't cheap andRead More they need an entire operations crew. They can't just open the doors and say 'come on in'. Such an impromptu event would be logistically difficult at best and certainly not without cost.

Something sounds amiss in the explanation, "... no place to host screen site." With allRead More the facilities in the area, such as Heinz Field, Stage AE, riverfront parks, ... and yet "no place ...." Somebody isn't telling the whole story.

I think the idea of hosting fans for the road games in the postseason is excellent. I also like theRead More idea of hosting fans inside the stadium during the pennant chase portion of the season during which we are on the road. How about offering the lavish Lexus Club buffet, Lexus club and Dugout Box seats, and having those associated with the team like Frank Coonelly, Steve Blass (who does not generally go on the road with the club), Many Sanguillen, and the Pirate Parrot mingling with the crowd before the game being shown on the scoreboard?

I am glad the kid will have a chance to attend to his health, but I hope he also gets to keep hisRead More scholarship. Is there any information on that, or is he merely the most recent discard of big-time NCAA sports?

He keeps his scholarship.
