94WIP’s Rob Ellis Issues Kate Smith Apology

On yesterday’s show I said some things that in hindsight I regret. I called for the Flyers organization to put a halt to using your imagery and voice when singing ‘God Bless America’ before games.

Jeremy Roenick Tells The Story Of When Craig Berube Punched Him

Jeremy Roenick and now Flyers coach, Craig Berube, were both with the Flyers organization late in their careers. The two had their differences when Berube, or “Chief” was with the Flyers and Roenick was with the Blackhawks. Berube always promised Roenick he’d get him, and when the Flyers acquired Roenick, Berube got him.

Debate Lead

Great Birds Debate Champ Rob Ellis: “There Will Be One For The Thumb, That’s A Guarantee!”

The art of the verbal jab came early, growing up on the streets of Upper Darby. That was stone-busting terrain, rife with cutters that can dig deep if you don’t watch your step.

AJ Burnett $16.5 Million

AJ Burnett: ‘I’m Ready To Be Part Of Something Special’

The addition of AJ Burnett to the Phillies pitching staff changes the complexion of the entire starting rotation. Burnett, as a legitimate number three starter, puts the rest of the rotation in a place where they don’t have to produce more than they’re accustomed to.

Michael Vick Says He’s 50-60%

While Chip Kelly says Michael Vick is day to day, and Vick says his condition is improving, it still seems unlikely he will start on Sunday against the Bucs. With a capable backup in Nick Foles, and the ability to run a necessity, giving his strained hamstring another week to heal would be the most likely option.
