These are guys who fearlessly jump in front of flying vulcanized rubber 82 nights out of the year ... but a little snake can make them go crazy.  The Philadelphia Flyers training staff went for this type of humor in this hilarious video. Bravo to whoever had to bleep out the curses from the players when they saw the snake. You seriously had your work cut out for you.  Out of all the reactions, the best was the guy who didn't really jump. Vincent Lecavalier looked shocked for a second, but more just enjoyed it. He didn't…

  • A Continuous Lean looks at The Surprisingly Stylish Side of Hugh Hefner.

    16 Oct 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Hugh Hefner is one of those rare individuals that appears to exist in a universe all his own. Sure, there’s the physical “universe” of the Mansion, the Bunnies, and the never-ending party that is Playboy, but there’s also something much deeper. Hefner has made a career out of the sort of images that you wouldn’t want your boss, girlfriend, mother, or fellow straphanger to catch you looking at, and yet, Hef still manages to come across as a gentleman at every turn. Of course, there is something slightly off about a nearly-ninety year old man that wears robes in public and is married…

    Green Philly Blog - Philadelphia's top environmental news, sustainability, local food, companies & events & Philly recycling Happy Halloween! The future of Philadelphia doesn't have to be as spooky as today’s holiday: Our friends around the web helped us imagine future possibilities our city can flourish. This week, we realized just how much business the PHS Pop Up Garden brought to South Street West as the space evolved over the previous 4 years. Could you imagine a pedestrian street in Market East?

    Green Philly Blog - Philadelphia's top environmental news, sustainability, local food, companies & events & Philly recycling Confession here. I've never been much of a soup girl. I mean, not that I was ever opposed. How else can you heal a cold without Chicken Noodle? (Now it's "Chickn" noodle.) Or the occasional Grilled Cheese MUST has Tomato Soup for that gooey, dipping perfection. But beyond that? I didn't want to waste time making soup. But now that I've been getting a CSA for over 3 years and my schedule has NOT slowed down, it's nearly impossible to keep up with all of…
