Over the next few weeks at The700Level, we'll be posting poll        matchups as part of our Philly March Madness competition.                   Examine the       cases of the two fine Philadelphia       athletes      below,    and     cast     your  vote at  the bottom as  to      which  you     think should    advance to         the next   round.  And       as always,   feel   free to explain    your     selection        and/or      debate the   choices    in the comments  section.

With the first round completed, we're presenting our second round matchups with some YouTube clips we feel to be definitive of the respective athletes' greatness during their time in Philly. If you think there's another, better video we should have used, we'd love to hear about that below as well.
