Bob's Coming Back to Town And He Knows English Now

Bob's Coming Back to Town And He Knows English Now

Yahoo! Sports' go-to Russian reporter Dmitry Chesnokov has the details from a Q&A Pavel Lysenkov did with Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky about his offseason. Topics range from his thoughts on being teammates with Ilya Bryzgalov, Bob's new wife Olga and her difficulty getting into the states last year, his honeymoon in Greece, Chris Pronger's leadership, and his current workout plan.

One of the interesting notes from the interview is that Bob says he's pretty much learned the English language now. More or less.

I have an idea about life in America. And I even know English more or
less. I tried it out in Austria. I understood almost everything, and I
can explain myself. Although I am not ready yet to give wide-ranging
interviews.

All of his answers to Lysenkov seem thoughtful and the kind of responses you'd like to see from a young guy on your team. Bob also says the Flyers told him to bulk up a bit, so he's been working on his core strength.

He also doesn't seem to want to be anywhere other than with the Flyers.

Maybe you asked for a trade yourself through your agent?  Semyon Varlamov moved from Washington to Colorado and now he has different horizons in front of him.

I didn't even have it in my thoughts to ask for a trade!  Nothing terrible happened. There is just a new person in the club. Why should I move to a different team because of that?  I like everything in Philadelphia. I want to compete for a roster spot, to play for the Stanley Cup with the guys. We have an ambitious club.

It closes with Bob being asked if it's his dream to play his entire career in Philly.

"Not a dream but a goal. This team has everything for hockey. I don't want to go anywhere," Bobrovsky says.

Finally, here's a shot of Bob and his new wife Olga.

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The 2017 Philadelphia Phillies look quite a bit different than the team that trotted out on the field last season.

One constant, however, is the Phillie Phanatic who brings his A-game every single year for most of our lives.

His consistency is remarkable.

Until now!

In a new promo video, the Phanatic attempts to get a makeover at the hands of shortstop and stylish dude Freddy Galvis.

The only problem is: if you're going to give the Phanatic dreadlocks -- and really, this sounds like a great idea to me -- you have to give him GREEN dreadlocks.

You'll notice they give him a 'fro at the end which is greeted with approval and it matches.

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz has had a whilrwind few days in Philadelphia as the city hosts the 2017 NFL draft.

He took some time between posing for selfies with Eagles fans and messing with Dallas Cowboys fans and hitting trick shots on live TV to talk about his busy week with CSNPhilly's Danny Pommells.

Obviously that pesky Cowboys' fan was a topic of interest.

"He was coming up and was getting booed. I was like, 'I can't take this picture.' So I nicely took his hat off and set it down and took the picture. He was cool with it. It was all in fun," Wentz said.

Carson also spoke about the record-setting Philly crowd and impressive atmosphere on Day 1 of the draft

"It was crazy. I didn't know what to expect being at the Draft Experience. The fans just kind of all circulated, it was nuts. That's Eagles fans. So much passion."

As for the Birds' first round pick Derek Barnett? Wentz had to look him up just like many Eagles fans.

"I watched some film of him. He's a dynamic player. He can really turn that corner and bend around that corner. I'm happy he's on our team I'll tell you that."

"I've heard he's a hard-working kid so that will serve him well," Wentz said.

The NFL Draft Experience continues on Friday and Saturday and is free for all fans.
