This Week’s City…

It had been since 1980 that Philadelphia saw any of its teams win a major Championship. The city saw the likes of Mike Schmidt and Pete Rose retire, the rise and fall of Allen Iverson, seven Eric Lindros concussions, and the regular season domination but playoff collapses of Donovan McNabb. The only constant through those years were the notorious brutality of their devote fan base. Then, the 2008 Phillies came on the scene and captured the World Series over the Tampa Bay Rays. Now, the fans are still ruthless, but they have the bubbly taste of champagne lingering on their tongues.
We have a lot to cover this week, including the Flyers playoff push, Chase Utley’s balky knee, Eagles quarterback quandary and the 76ers taking the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race!
