Al Morganti: Hopefully rest of NFL learned not to sleep on underdog Eagles

It is almost impossible to believe that 2019 opens up with such a rush of optimism, and a belief that the Philadelphia Eagles have another chance to bring a winter parade down Broad Street and the Parkway.

Al Morganti: Carter Hart is the key to the Flyers' future

The most important person in the Flyers organization is not the new general manager Chuck Fletcher. It’s not captain Claude Giroux, and it’s certainly not interim coach Scott Gordon, or whoever is behind the team’s bench beyond this season. The most important person in the Flyers organization is a 20-year old kid from Alberta named Carter Hart.

Opinion

Al Morganti: 'If Pederson or any of the Eagles thought there would be a grace period they were very wrong'

The Super Bowl champion Eagles are headed toward the mid point of the season looking like anything but a team ready to defend its title. The team is headed to London with a game it must win to keep its head at sea level at the half way point of the season.

Al Morganti: Phillies' late-season collapse is overshadowing improvement in win column

From the front office, to the manager’s chair, to the locker room, and right into the stands, the Philadelphia Phillies 2018 season has been a regrettable mess that will mercifully come to a close this weekend.

Al Morganti: Serena Williams may have been wrong, but that doesn't make the umpire right

The Serena Williams meltdown at the US Open — and the resulting discussion — is only further proof of the lack of respect for women in sport, especially when it comes to Williams.
