JVR Shows His Love for Sixers After Game 7

JVR Shows His Love for Sixers After Game 7

One of the biggest positives from the Flyers first round victory over the Sabres was the play of James van Riemsdyk. JVR really stepped his game up in a big way in the playoffs, a tremendous sign for the potential impact this kid can have both now and in the future. His play on the ice aside, he also seems to have embraced the local sports scene in a great way -- a trait we Philadelphians always appreciate -- showing his love for the other team that plays in the Wells Fargo Center by rocking a Sixers cap following last night's game 7 win. Now only if one of the Sixers can have the opportunity to rock a Flyers hat after a game 7 playoff victory... [photo via @centericephilly]

One other quick note on Buffalo: Be sure to check out the Sabres Eulogy over at Puck Daddy which was written by the rapscallions over at Flyers Goal Scored By.

The Phillie Phanatic got a date with a Dodgers reporter, spilled all over her

The Phillie Phanatic got a date with a Dodgers reporter, spilled all over her

The Phillie Phanatic is nothing if not persistent. 

When he has his big bug eyes set on something, he goes to great length to make it happen.

So it was with great joy we got to see his wooing of Los Angeles Dodgers' reporter Alanna Rizzo paid off on Thursday -- at least in the short term.

Prior to today's matinee with the Dodgers, the Phillies broadcast showed the Phanatic setting up a lovely, romantic setting on the field at Citizens Bank Park for a date with Alanna.

"He knows exactly how to get to a ladies' heart," Phillies play-by-play man Tom McCarthy said.

But then the Phanatic had to go screw it up like the goof that he is and spilled his beverage all over his date.

We're hoping that Phyllis does not see this clip, for everyone's sake. But part of us thinks it may have all been a ploy to punk the opposing team's media member. Maybe the Phanatic is smarter than we all think and had that up his sleeve all along.

"Do they have to put him in a cage when they take a flight," John Kruk wondered aloud.

Good question.
