Good Morningcurrently 40 degrees and heading towards 60, get out for a nice walk, jog or run ….. The Flyers are back on the ice tonight vs the Sabres hoping to turn things around and get everyone going. Who’s in goal? Elliott/Hart they still need to play much better in front of them. Shoot more, pass less, let’s go, pucks on net. Pretty simple. The Phillies are back on the field after a day off yesterday vs the Blue Jays in Dunedin Fl. Joe Girardi has the top of his line up pretty set, but is still playing with different combinations in the 6-7-8 spots. ….. and how about Bryce Harper’s new glove, does he have a crush on the Phanatic. It’s good to see Mickey Moniak having a good big league camp and taking advantage of every at bat. I was there for his first camp, great kid and solid family. Our old friend Maikel Franco is being looked at by the Mets as they have a need for a third baseman. Good luck to him. The Eagles owner/GM has chosen Jalen Hurts as the starting QB, so who will be the the backup, maybe a veteran like Ryan Fitzpatrick. A real good mentor for sure and an emergency backup if needed. The 76ers are back on the court Thursday night vs the Bulls after the All Star break, just hoping Joel/Ben are good to go. The Villanova Wildcats are busy getting ready for Thursday’s Big East Tournament, do we know who they will play Marc Rapport. Go Cats Have a great day everyone, Spring is in the air !!! Be Safe and Be Kind. #phillysports#thisfansview
Good Morning Everyone …..
🍕 It’s National Pizza Day …..
🥶🥶 it looks like another wintry mix kinda day, Be Safe …..
🏒🏒 The Flyers are back in DC tonight for another game vs the Capitals. Game Time is 6pm.
The next two games vs the NJ Devils have been canceled due to COVID-19 outbreak within the Devils organization.
Next game is scheduled for Sunday vs the NY Rangers.
🏀 The 76ers 17-7 are on the road tonight vs the Sacramento Kings 12-11 to start a 4 game west coast road trip.
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons continue to drive this bus to staying in first place and playing great ball every night.
⚾️⚾️ The Phillies Spring Training truck is on the road to Clearwater for the start of the new season. Many changes are in place for player safety along with no fan contact at the minor league complex. That’s probably the thing I will miss the most in going to the complex to see minor league ball with the young players and veterans getting in their work everyday. The fun of hanging with other Phillies fans in the warm climate when you know it’s really cold back home.
Take care and be safe everyone.
Hoping everyone has a great Tuesday and you continue to wear your damn mask, it’s far from over. Stay Safe !!!
Good Tuesday Morning RIP KobeGianna The World continues to mourn and pay respects to the Black Mamba….. The 76ers lost ugly last night to the Detroit Pistons. Let’s hope they were looking ahead to tomorrow night’s match up vs the LA Lakers. Joel Embiid had the night off with back spasms and Ben Simmons with only 11 points. The Flyers are back on the ice tonight vs the NJ Devils. Let’s hope Carter Hart got a new stick and the team is putting that 6-1 loss to the Bruins behind them. It’s only a 56 game schedule so you can’t afford to many losses like that one. Spring Training Baseball is getting close but still no word from MLB on when and how many fans can enjoy some baseball. It may be time to take our yearly trip to Clearwater off. If we can’t get into the minor league complex for practice and games at Brighthouse Field, we might sit this one out. 2020 sucked, 2021 sucking more. Where’s our vaccine ….. A wintry mix is what their saying for today, so be safe in your travels if you need to go out.StaySafe, StayStrong, StayPositive and BeKind !!!
Good Monday Morning Everyonea couple of doctor/therapy appointments this morning so running a little late. Yes, the store is open today 11-7 on this Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday….. it was a great football weekend and glad to see the teams I picked moving on. Bucs/Packers and Bills/Chiefs Hoping everyone that plays a little cashed in some winning tickets. Speaking of winning tickets, how about that Mega/Power Ball Lottery. 76ers basketball was postponed last night vs the Oklahoma Thunder due to COVID-19 issues. Up next Wednesday night vs Celtics, but not sure Flyers are back on the ice tonight and tomorrow night vs the Buffalo Sabres. I’m thinking the Fly Guys should do pretty well vs them. The NHL will be wearing #22 on their helmets in honor of Boston Bruins Great Willie O’Ree and the Bruins will also be retiring his number 22 that will hang from the Boston Garden. Big fan of Mr O’Ree especially on this day of Equality throughout all of sports, but especially hockey Hope everyone had a great weekend and will enjoy better days ahead…..StaySafe, Strong, Positive and please Be Kind….. #thisfansview
Good Morning Monday ☕️
🏈 Wildcard Playoff Football did not disappoint this weekend.
Biggest winners appear to be the Bills, Browns and Nickelodeon 💦
The Bills win a playoff game for the first time in 25 years, the Browns with a huge win over the Steelers, Steeler nation is not happy this morning.
And how about Saints head coach Sean Payton agreeing to be slimed live on the Nickelodeon Network if his team won. Good stuff !! Who Dat !!
And tonight the biggest game of the year, College Football Championship.
Heavily favored Alabama takes on Ohio State at 8pm on ESPN.
Who ya got Sean Waynant ???
🏒🏒 I had to switch back n forth as the Flyers had an exhibition game at 7pm, Orange vs White and the White team prevailed 4-3 even though the Orange team jumped out early 2-0.
My take away from the game was seeing Oskar Lindblom and Nolan Patrick back on the ice and look ready for the upcoming 56 game schedule.
Overall, the team looks ready to pick up after being bumped early in last year’s playoffs.
🔥Philly Sports, nothing better
🥶 It’s Monday so let’s get after it and have a great day, Be Safe !!
Good Morning Monday Birds now that was a total embarrassment for both Eagles fans and football fans around the world. We don’t know if the Birds could have won that game, but we do know Coach went out of his way to make sure they didn’t. Did he want Washington to win the division, does he dislike the Giants that much or did he really want to play Nate Sudfeld that much? Nate was last seen holding beers for Nick Foles and Carson Wentz on the Championship float. I still can’t wrap myself around this and Coach owes the fans a much better answer or maybe Jeffrey Lurie says that’s it, I’ve seen enough. Does the league get involved and what could the punishment be for this ?? I was ok with Coach coming back next year with a much healthier team and some new players, but after this I’m not sure. Check out the random photo below of Zach Ertz, Carson Wentz, Jason Kelce and Dom, that’s Coach’s security guy back on the field after they showered and dressed. Photo was sent to me by Eagles fan Sean Waynant. This is going to be a very long off season for sure.
Flyers hockey is not far away to take my mind off the way the Birds season ended. Maybe Jeff Lurie needs to look at how the Flyers handled things, firing everyone just a few short years ago. But then again maybe Jeff Lurie is the new Jerry Jones. not the way I wanted 2021 to get started and I’m sure I don’t stand alone with all of this craziness….. Birds fans, can I hear from you ??
Happy National Bloody Mary Day Well, we made it to the New Year and our expectations are high that we can have a much better year then last, let’s hope so. Wishing everyone a healthy and happy new year, now let’s get after it and make it happen. New Years Day is always about family, friends and football, today we’ve got two great games. Clemson vs Ohio State All State Sugar Bowl at 8pm Notre Dame vs AlabamaCapital One Rose Bowl at 4pm The 76ers put a beat down on the unbeaten Orlando Magic last night 116-92. Up next are the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday night. Carl’s Cards & Collectibles, Inc. is closed today to celebrate New Years Day but we are right back at it tomorrow with our normal Saturday schedule 10-5. I know many of you were in yesterday to purchase packs and boxes of trading cards to bring in the new year, Cheers to some big hits. The trading card market is on fire and I expect it to continue through 2021….. #panini #topps #upperdeck #CCC #thisfansview #delco StayStrong, StayPositive, StaySafe and please BeKind. LETS ALL GET AFTER IT IN 2021 #thisfansview
Grab that morning coffee and let’s get ready to ring in the new year. I can’t thank the crew of This Fan’s View enough as the final show of 2020 brought us all together throughout the year. We are truly on our way to bigger things in 2021. Once again, thank you to all of you that follow us and have fun with us, and our sponsors who joined along with us. Cheers to 2021. Sports definitely looked a whole lot different in 2020, but we survived and we will get through this together. StayStrong, StayPositive, StaySafe and Please BeKind…. Let’s get after it in 2021 !!! #thisfansview
Good Morning Happy National Bacon Day !!Wishing everyone a Happy New Year from This Fan’s View Join us tonight at 6:30 as we close out 2020 and look forward to a very favorable 2021. We always have a spirited conversation about Philly Sports and why should that stop now. Who Wore It Best with Number 45 and that should be a no brainer and how about our Fantasy Football Contest. Carls Kettle still has room if you would like to make a donation for our holiday drive for Humane Pennsylvania Tonight we pick a winner for the very rare Autographed Phillie Phantic, someone is going to start the new year off very happy. It’s going to be another great show with all of our fans as we toast everyone for a very Happy, Healthy and Safe 2021. CHEERS https://e.givesmart.com/events/jNu/The 76ers grabbed another win last night vs a very talented Toronto Raptors team. Doc Rivers has this group playing well and should be in contention for the playoffs. Up next are the Orlando Magic on New Year’s Eve. Do the Eagles tank on Sunday night vs Washington and go for the higher draft pick, did I just say that ?? Fly Eagles Fly The Phillies made a trade for a left hander for the bullpen. Will he be throwing to JT Realmuto remains to be seen. Where are all these big teams that were going to throw stupid money at him. Interesting, but according to sources the Phillies still have not even made an offer. John Middleton you are on the hot seat….. Two weeks away from Flyers hockey as they get the season started vs the hated Pittsburgh Penguins. I’m looking for Kevin Hayes to have a monster season in his second year with the Orange n Black. StayStrong, StayPositive, StaySafe and always BeKind. #thisfansview
As we wind down 2020, don’t forget it’s not too late to help out our holiday donation drive, many of you have donated and I really appreciate that. We will pick the winner of the rare autographed Phillie Phanatic tomorrow night on This Fan’s View final show of 2020 – https://e.givesmart.com/events/jNu/ – Humane Pennsylvania
Our Phillies have been pretty quiet, but not the San Diego Padres as they have traded for Blake Snell and Yu Darvish in the past couple of days. I guess they are going all in out West and taking a run at the Champion LA Dodgers.
The Birds have a lot of work to do this off season, as they were eliminated from any playoffs this year. We need to keep an eye on this, as Doug Pederson, says he will be back as coach, but I’m not so sure. It may be time for some change and it might come at his expense. That Cowboy loss on Sunday had to leave a bad taste in the owners mouth, that was humiliating to say the least. Fly Eagles Fly
As I said at the top, tomorrow night will be our last This Fans View show of 2020. It’s been a crazy year to say the least and we shared many a show with many of you to help us all get through these crazy times. We’ve had many great guests and have talked Philly Sports every Wednesday night and then some. We will recap our year and hope you can join us one more time in 2020
StayStrong, Positive & Safe
