The brand new Market at Maglio’s at 3632 S 3rd Street (3rd and Pattison) is offering a pound of sausage to the first 500 fans that present their Eagles tickets for this Sunday, December 14th. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
So before you park and tailgate, swing by Market at Maglio’s and pick up you hot or mild pound of sausage and then get that grill going. With its location close to the stadiums, and the market’s selection of sides, meats and cheeses, Maglio’s pre-game, might become a tradition.

Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Keith Carlos was crowned America’s Next Top Model on Friday during Tyra Bank’s long-running reality show’s season finale. This makes Carlos the first man to win the competition, since ANTM started including male models last season.
According to FOX 29, Carlos beat out 30 other men and women for the top prize, which earns him a contract with Next Model Management and a spread in Nylon magazine.
In a statement to Zap2It, Carlos said, “”I was very surprised that I won, because Will was such a strong model and Adam was so red-hot towards the end. The fact that I came through and pulled it out was very surprising for me.”

Interview by Sheil Kapadia and Tim McManus
PM: At what point in your lives did you realize that you had a chance to play football professionally?
TODD: Probably my junior year in college.
EVAN: In ninth grade, I wrote a journal and said I was going to make straight A’s in high school, and I was going
to go to Alabama and play football and baseball and then go to the NFL and then go to the WWF. Obviously, everything there was far-fetched. It’s not like I was good at anything at that age — except writing journals.
TODD: The old Twitter.
EVAN: [laughs] The old Twitter.
PM: Is wrestling still in the plans?
EVAN: Nothing is off the table yet.
TODD: Except for baseball at Alabama.
EVAN: Yeah. Baseball at Alabama was a failure.

The Philadelphia Eagles released their latest #FlyEaglesFly video and this may be the best one yet. Just in time for this weekend’s face-off between longtime rivals the New York Giants, the ad features a voiceover by a pumped-up Bradley Cooper. “This is more than a mid-season matchup,” he says. “This is a street fight—Wall Street against Broad Street.”
He goes on to have a little fun with the piece, imitating a New York accent and offering advice on how to shut up a smack-talking Giants fan. Penn alum John Legend and Philly’s The Roots provide the background sounds. Give it a watch above.
Philadelphia’s own Boyz II Men will make an exciting appearance at this Sunday’s Eagles vs. Giants game. R&B hit-makers and Philly natives Shawn Stockman, Wanya Morris, and Nate Morris will perform during halftime on Sunday, October 12th. The Grammy-winning group will put on a medley of their biggest hits and their newest tunes. Boyz II Men’s latest album, Collide, drops Tuesday, October 21st.
It looks like the Eagles are already warming up for Boyz II Men’s performance:
It’s always fun to head out to watch the Eagles play but sometimes you want to bring the party home. And sure you have your favorite wings or pizza spots. But here are five different take out options to help out your party on gameday.

In our unending quest to cover all-things-cheesesteaks, we direct you to the Washington Post’s Sports Blog where Dan Steinberg went above and beyond in figuring out just what was thrown at Philadelphia’s Public Enemy Number One, Washington Redskins defensive tackle Chris Baker. Baker was jeered by fans at the Linc on Sunday after being ejected for an unnecessary roughness penalty for crushing Nick Foles in the 4th quarter.

On Friday night, September 5th, The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) held the Jefferson Tribute Dinner at the Linc, honoring the Philadelphia Eagles.
Stephen K. Klasko, MD, president and CEO of TJU, spoke of the groundbreaking cancer research going on at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, and the generous $110 million gift by the Sidney Kimmel Foundation which will allow them to go lighting-speed ahead toward a cure for the horrendous disease. He was also delighted to announce that now that Market Street East is called Jefferson Station, people arriving at the station will be greeted by a TJU shuttle to take them to any of the buildings on the TJU campus.
He then praised the Eagles for all they do to raise funds for cancer research, and introduced Don Smolenski, president of the Eagles organization, who accepted on behalf of the team. Smolenski was grateful for the honor, paid tribute to those he knew battling cancer, and paid tribute to Phillies president David Montgomery in his fight against cancer. After dinner and the program, guests boogied down on the dance floor to the tunes of DJ Brickhouse.

This afternoon I reached out to 160Over90, the local branding agency in charge of creating the Philadelphia Eagles #FlyEaglesFly videos. I chatted with Creative Director Brendan Quinn, who, along with a team of writers and videographers, was in charge of the concept and creation of the spot. He talked about how he got Bradley Cooper involved, how keyboardist Kamal Gray helped procure the rights to The Roots song in the background, and getting some of Philly’s rowdiest Eagles fans involved in the project.
