    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg liked what he saw from Cole Hamels in his long-awaited season debut. A better job by the bullpen would have helped, along with a few more runs against Zack Greinke. Greinke outpitched Hamels with seven strong innings, Hanley Ramirez homered and Yasiel Puig drove in two runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 5-2 victory over the Phillies on Wednesday night. Hamels took the loss in his season debut, after missing the first three weeks because of biceps tendinitis. The 30-year-old left-hander threw 86 pitches, allowing two runs and six hits…

    The Inquirer reports that City Controller Alan Butkovitz is making the kinds of movies you’d expect a mayoral candidate to make, only without quite saying yet that he’s a mayoral candidate. For example: he just hired a media strategist renowned for helping get Detroit’s mayor elected. Butkovitz is prohibited by the City Charter from saying that he’s running for mayor without first resigning his current job. In an interview late Tuesday, he said his committee, Friends of Alan Butkovitz, had hired Joe Slade White & Company for “whatever I’m doing next.” He said he…

    By Paul Kurtz PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Sales of silencers, the screw-on devices that muffle gunfire, are soaring. It’s a little quieter these days at gun ranges all across America. According to the Bureau of Alchohol, Tobacco and Firearms sales rose a whopping 37-percent last year. Industry analysts say the buying spree follows a run on guns that happened in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre. In other words, many gun owners are now accessorizing. But this man, who declined to give his name, has a more practical reason for buying his. Gun shop owner Fred Delia (left) and Tom Hazell holding…

In 2013, 116, and so far in 2014, just 23. “There’s no definitive answer as to why the numbers have dropped,” Philadelphia Police Spokesperson John Stanford said. “I think there have been more of a push to educate drivers that this is a violation of the law.” Now how do officers determine who they will pull…

So if you yearn for that romantic ride in the park, you’d better catch it soon. Will the Tin Lizzy replace the elegant carriages and the soothing sound of a horse’s hooves in fabled Central Park?  If Mayor de Blasio has his way, they will. Animal rights activists are cheering.

Now the adorable avenue is a major destination for dining and retail. In 2010 Passyunk Avenue was profiled in the travel section of the New York Times for it's cool cafe culture and hip boutiques. After the young art crowd helped established East Passyunk Avenue as an exciting place to be, culinary heavy weights followed suit. In May of 2013,…

New York did not announce any dates Wednesday, but teams can begin camp 15 days before their first preseason game.

    The NFL has a lot of television network partners to keep happy, and that job got more difficult when CBS was given a package of Thursday night games this season. The league for years used "Monday Night Football" to show its highlight game each week, but when NBC landed "Sunday Night Football" and ESPN went to Monday night, the league puts its best games on Sunday night. This year NFL needs to make sure CBS and FOX were happy with their regular Sunday schedules, give CBS some good games for Thursday night, and still make "Sunday Night Football" and "Monday Night Football" must-watch events.

    23 Apr 2014 | 8:23 pm
    In Game 1 of the first-round series between the Dallas Mavericks and heavily favored San Antonio Spurs, the No. 8-seed Mavs held a surprising 10-point lead in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for them, that advantage didn't last — the Spurs held them to one field goal in the final seven minutes of regulation to grab a 90-85 win and 1-0 series advantage. Given the circumstances, the Mavericks could be forgiven for thinking they had squandered their best chance at stealing a road victory. They would not let go of the same opportunity in Wednesday night's Game 2. On the strength of their…

''Don't give us a passing grade yet, because we're still taking the test,'' Sharks coach Todd McLellan said Wednesday after the Sharks' mellow skate at Staples Center. After so many years of playoff disappointments, the Sharks are one win away from kicking off their latest postseason run with quite a sweeping statement.

    Last night, the Toronto Raptors came back to beat the Brooklyn Nets in Game 2 of their 2014 NBA Playoffs series. However, what made the rounds was the video below of Drake lint rolling his pants in his courtside seats. Not really surprising, just is what it is.

  • Banana Protein Muffins Recipe

    Beth Funari
    23 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Green Philly Blog - Philadelphia's top environmental news, sustainability, local food, companies & events & Philly recycling I'm convinced that most banana muffin recipes are born as a result of a bunch of bananas sitting on the counter about to go bad. Well, at least that's the situation I find myself in every time I bake with bananas. So I had my browning bananas and I happened to be craving a good muffin.  BUT I really wanted these muffins to contain some protein. If I don't eat protein with my breakfast I'm typically hangry (angry hungry) shortly after. I also had hopes of…

Don’t believe me? Walk the streets of London for a few hours or ride the metro in DC. Return to Philly and compare. But when people talk about Philly being dirty, they’re often referring to our litter problem. Yet litter is such a large, debated topic. How do we combat litter? Do we concentrate efforts on educating people or cleanup efforts after the fact? Neighborhoods with litter…

    Green Philly Blog - Philadelphia's top environmental news, sustainability, local food, companies & events & Philly recycling It is awkward to be a vegetarian in the company of carnivores. I’m out to eat with my parents, in town visiting, and we’ve stopped for a bite to eat. And I am realizing for the first time since adopting my new diet what it means to be a man and a vegetarian in America. The waitress asks me if I’m a vegetarian after she takes my order.
