Philly Sports Teams Doing Great!

April 8, 2018

First the NFL Eagles and then Villanova brought titles to the “city of brotherly love,” Philadelphia.

Though neither “Philly” winter sports is likely to bring another title in the upcoming ‘offs, both the NBA 76ers and NHL Flyers will be in their league’s post-season.

Even the baseball Phillies were/are expected to improve as their projected win total was a somewhat respectable 77 and a fraction.

Ah 1975, the last Flyers’ crown and a sports wrap show on WCAU that included the great announcer Harry Kalas’ call of a game winning home run by Ollie Brown for the improving, but not quite ready Phillies (4 div titles and one title, that in ’80 would follow).

Ah 1980, spring to winter, all four Philadelphia Major North American sports league teams, made the final, only the Phils, with their first ever crown won it.

Now counting college basketball’s Villanova and their second crown in 3 seasons, “Philly” has two in the proverbial bank and both winter sports teams in the upcoming NBA and NHL playoffs.
