Featured Blog at Philly Future

I’ve been selected as the feature
blog over at
Philly Future. They asked
me to answer a few questions for those who never sat in the 700 Level.

1. How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been doing The 700 Level for
a little over a year. Prior to that I
had a personal blog I had been doing for maybe another year back and even
before that I’ve had some stupid personal web pages dating back to maybe 1998
or so.

2. What motivated you to start blogging?

The groupies. Besides them, a blog just archives my
thoughts and entertains my friends.

3. What's your favorite Philly sports team throughout history (team and year)?

I think the two that come to mind immediately
are last years Superbowl losers and the Sixers squad who fell to the Lakers in
the finals a few years back. The way the
city got behind these two teams is what makes Philly such a great sports
town. I was born in 1980 so I’m part of
the generations who don’t know what it’s actually like to be at a non-mummer’s
related parade down Broad St.

4. For those not familiar with the700Level, what should they know?

I don’t take myself too
seriously. I like to talk about the
major Philly teams and just give my friends and I a place to vent our
frustrations or let it be known we think David Bell/Mike Lieberthal/Bobby
Abreu/Kyle Korver stinks. If I find a
link that I think my friends would enjoy, I post it up.  I don’t just like sports, but that’s what I
use to get people to the Level; you will see some random music stuff as well as
whatever I feel like talking about today.

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.
