This week on the podcast: Aaron Hernandez goes to jail, the NHL & NBA playoffs are on the horizon, T.O. weighs in on the 'is a hot dog a sandwich' debate & Ben tries out for Jeopardy.
Episode 12 of the podcast. Full of miscellaneous goodness. Phillies, Flyers, summer beers, kickball, ballpark food & more.
I think the embedding actual worked this week, so the podcast should be right below this text. For now, the link is also below and we can always be found on the Podomatic app, just search 'broadstbeat'.
When the Phillies signed Aaron Harang to a one-year, $5 million deal in late December, they were hoping for a veteran presence in the rotation that could eat some innings.
Harang did much more than eat innings in his Phillies debut Wednesday night, tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings.
The Phillies would get their first run(s) of the season in the game as well, as veteran Jeff Francoeur, who came to Spring Training as a non-roster invitee, smacked a three-run home run to center to give the Phillies the lead on their way to a 4-2 win.
…and they’re off…to a terrible start.
The Phillies kicked off the 2015 season this afternoon at Citizens Bank Park by getting absolutely romped by the Red Sox, 8-0.
The Red Sox wasted little time getting to it against the Phillies, as Dustin Pedroia took just the fifth pitch of the game out of the park to put Boston up 1-0.
As most of you are aware, the last time the Pittsburgh Penguins went to battle with our Philadelphia Flyers and emerged victorious was October 17, 2013. I thought it would be fun to take a look at the way life was back then, a whole 536 days ago, compared to how they are now.
Villanova guard Dylan Ennis has played his last game as a Wildcat. Ennis announced that upon graduating in the upcoming weeks, he will play elsewhere next season. Since he is a graduate student, he does not have to sit next season out and can play immediately, as opposed to undergrad transfers, who have to sit a season in order to play elsewhere.
Here's the link for this week's episode of the podcast with Ben & Dan. So much random goodness, Flyers, Easter, Will Ferrell, a guest appearance by Tom DeLonge, McDonald's breakfast, Final 4 etc.
Still having trouble making the embedded podcast work so use the link for now. You can also find it if you download the Podomatic app for your phone.
Chase Utley continued to look solid Sunday in a small sample size so far this spring, hitting two home runs (video below) and walking once in the Phillies’ 4-4 tie with the Detroit Tigers.
Utley would get the day started on a strong note for the Phillies, cracking a two-run home run to right in the bottom of the first to put the Phillies ahead 2-0.
Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!
