Pod: The Sixers Are Moving?

Screenshot: 76Place.com

Nearly two years ago on this very site, John put on his tin foil hat and theorized that the Sixers were going to move to New Jersey.

Last week, the Sixers announced their latest plans to build their own arena. It’s a little west of Jersey, but still drew the attention of the Philadelphia area and has the whole region debating its merits.

The guys are no different; this week, they discuss the project, plus John’s bout with COVID-19, the Flyers’ lost summer, and more.

The rundown:

• John makes his return to the airwaves after catching COVID-19 long after it was fashionable

• While John was suffering with his illness, Joey Walnut over here was battling through yet another hot dog-related competition (7:20)

• The Phillies took some momentum into the All-Star Break before sputtering out of the gate after it (9:41); the guys discuss Joe’s column on how to improve MLB’s Midsummer Classic (13:08)

• What are they drinking? It was a hundred frickin’ degrees out; they’re drinking water (18:51)

• The guys dig into the Sixers’ plans to build the currently-poorly-monikered 76 Place in Center City (19:49)

• Oh, yeah, James Harden signed (36:27)

• The Flyers failed to sign South Jersey’s Johnny Gaudreau, while simultaneously getting rid of cancer survivor Oskar Lindblom and trading for Tony DeAngelo, who was also born in South Jersey but also has some baggage (39:49); how big a missed opportunity was this? What is the plan? Is there even a plan at all?

Trea Turner is (Going to Be) a Phillie; Jalen Hurts Should Be the NFL MVP Favorite The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The Phillies agreed to a massive contract with free agent shortstop Trea Turner on Monday, which was perfect timing for the guys to discuss the deal and Turner's potential impact on the roster (5:59), what the lineup looks like in 2023 (16:58), and whether the signing closes the gap on the Braves and Mets (21:38).  Then, after the Eagles topped the Titans on Sunday (31:38), Jalen Hurts gets his due – at least on this pod – as the favorite to win the NFL MVP award (38:13).
