Here's the Trailer for New Sons of Ben Movie

Here's another trailer for a new movie coming out next year about the Sons of Ben and their passion for soccer in Philadelphia. If there's one takeaway from this trailer it's that Philly sports fans are a crazy passionate bunch, even when it comes to the Union on the soccer pitch. I think most of us recognize the SoBs bring an awesome vibe to PPL Park down in the River End, but it looks like this film will show much of the work they do outside of the stadium as well.

You can read more info on the film in the description below the video.

North America's Major League Soccer played its inaugural season in 1996 and although Philadelphia was a top ten market with storied sports franchises, it was not awarded a team.

Ten long years later, it still didn't have a team, so a small group of die-hard Philadelphia soccer fans took matters into their own hands and did something crazy: they formed a supporters club for a team that didn't exist. Naming their group after famous Philadelphian Benjamin Franklin, they called themselves the Sons of Ben. They had one goal – bring professional soccer to Philadelphia.

Setting themselves the modest goal of expanding to 100 members by the end of one year, they tapped into a wellspring of local soccer fanatics and soon had 1,500 drum-banging, song-singing followers. Together, these Sons of Ben started a movement that brought into existence the Philadelphia Union, changing the soccer landscape in Philadelphia forever, and also helped revive a struggling community abandoned by government, business, and its neighbors.

This is the story of the Sons of Ben.

Report: Kings called Flyers about bad goalie Steve Mason

Report: Kings called Flyers about bad goalie Steve Mason

Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.

Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.

Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.

Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)

A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

Kids, if you're reading at home, stop....

earmuffs ** He flipped him the double bird ** earmuffs

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
