Born out of countless hours spent riding the subway bearing the same name comes "The Broad Street Line" - an irreverent mix of sports talk, music, technology and pop culture. Each week, hosts Kris Domingo and Roy Burton provide their takes on the world of sports and whatever else comes to mind - answering questions and questioning answers. So keep it locked on The Broad Street Line - radio will never be the same again...
As part of the Spring 2023 Fund Drive at WPPM, The Broad Street Line does a deep dive on the 2001 Philadelphia 76ers. The team is the subject of a new documentary on NBA TV, and despite not winning a championship, that Sixers' team captured the hearts of the City of Philadelphia like few others.We also get into the present day Sixers as well as Nick Nurse was named the team's head coach earlier this week. Can he finally push the team past the second round of the playoffs?
While the Sixers' head coaching search continues, the biggest news surrounding the team is in relation to James Harden's decision this summer. All signs point to the NBA's assist leader heading back to Houston as the 76ers don't sound inclined to offer him max money.In other basketball news, we definitely saw the end of Carmelo Anthony's career, but have we seen the last game of LeBron James as well?
We catch up with author/writer/podcaster Chris Stevens to get his thoughts on the latest debacle in South Philly as it relates to the Philadelphia 76ers. After we debate the futures of James Harden, Joel Embiid, et al., we jump over to WWE and fantasy book both Money In The Bank and the upcoming Night of Champions PPV.
Is it Christmas in May? Well, it certainly feels like it around these parts... not only is the Philadelphia Eagles schedule loaded with intriguing matchups, but the 76ers hold a 3-2 lead in their playoff series against the Boston Celtics. Two elite games from James Harden helped the Sixers get to this point, but they still need to close the deal.In the sports entertainment realm, we need to give props to WWE for putting on a very entertaining Backlash card this past weekend, and we debate whether or not Bad Bunny is the best celebrity wrestler of all time.
Truzz Howie - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 317
Once again, Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman proves that he's the smartest guy in the room. The Birds pulled off a master class this past weekend, landing a top-3 talent in Jalen Carter, getting a top-15 talent in Nolan Smith, and flipping a future pick for D'Andre Swift.Meanwhile, in the NBA, the Sixers are tied 1-1 with the Boston Celtics in their Eastern Conference semifinals series. And much to the delight of 76ers' fans, Joel Embiid wins the MVP award for the first time in his storied career.
Recorded before the 2023 NFL Draft, we (poorly) attempt to guess what the Philadelphia Eagles have in store as they try to replicate last year's incredible run to the Super Bowl. All of the optimism surrounding the local football team is dampened by the fact that Joel Embiid is heading into the second round of the NBA playoffs with a knee injury. But even with Embiid at less than 100%, we may have seen enough cracks in the Celtics' armor to finally slay the dragon that has haunted Sixers' fans for more than a decade.
QB1 Gets Paid - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 315
Jalen Hurts gets the bag as the Philadelphia Eagles reward him with a deal that makes him one of the highest-paid players in NFL history. Now that he's locked up, Birds fans can focus on what the team plans to do in next week's draft as the rumor mill is in overdrive as the countdown to KC continues. Down the street from the Eagles, the 76ers are up 2-0 in their first round series against the Brooklyn Nets, and appear to be set for a showdown against the Boston Celtics.
The Sixers are set to face the Brooklyn Nets (sans Ben Simmons) in the first round of the playoffs, but most of the focus in Philadelphia these days is on the upcoming NFL Draft. Will the Eagles select dynamic RB Bijan Robinson with the No. 10 pick, or will they choose to use it on an impact edge rusher?
Vince Is Back - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 313
The streak of great two-night Wrestlemanias continues as WWE have us another banger this past weekend. However, that excitement is tempered by the fact that Vince McMahon is back as the company is sold to the parent corporation that runs UFC. What will the new Endeavor look like and will the WWE's run of solid booking end? We try to answer those two questions as best we can.
Wrestlemania 39 Preview - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 312
Official Friend of The Show and Podcast Producer extraordinaire Andrew Goldstein joins us on the show as he does every year to help us break down the Wrestlemania 39 card. Not only does he lay out his beefs with WWE's creative team since Triple H took the reins, he also tells you how we all missed out on a potential "Wrestlemania Moment". We also dive into some Temple Basketball talk, discuss some options for the Eagles in the 2023 NFL Draft, and throw out a few restaurant reviews for the foodies in the audience.
Years after Chip Kelly first drove through that housing complex looking for his forever home, Marcus Mariota finally lands with the Philadelphia Eagles. But in all honestly, that was just a footnote on a wild week in Philly sports that saw Trea Turner and Kyle Schwarber show out at the World Baseball Classic while the Eagles themselves were on the short list of choices for... Ezekiel Elliott?
As we continue to shine a light on the most talented media members in the Philadelphia area, Jonathan Brown from the Best In The World Sports podcast joins the show to talk about his two-decade plus career behind the camera. Jon discusses his time working at NBC Sports Philadelphia, gives us his opinion on the Eagles' offseason moves, and explains why WWE's current Bloodline saga is one of the most compelling storylines of all time.
We're Gambling Again - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 309
Sean Brace of Fox Sports Radio's The Gambler joins the show to explain what motivated him to build a sports radio station in Philly, and why the competition has been late to the game as we all begin to publicly embrace sports betting. We also discuss why the Philadelphia Union are so compelling, and debate whether the Sixers are for real, or if they're setting us up for disappointment once again.
On The Clock - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 308
The Philadelphia Eagles filled both of their open coordinator positions - one internally, and one externally. And with that out of the way, the team can focus on free agency as they decide whether or not to re-up some of their core players. Later in the show, we run through the NFLPA survey and wonder why billion-dollar corporations have rats running around the building.
It's time to be completely honest: The NBA All-Star Game is broken, and it's hard to figure out how to fix it. Kudos to Mac McClung, however... at least the Sixers can't be blamed for the NBA's failings. But before we get to all of that, we debate the merits of attending one's high school reunion.
The Philadelphia Eagles ran out of time in Super Bowl LVII, falling to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-35. During the game, Jalen Hurts cemented his status as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, so Howie Roseman's job this offseason is to build the best team around his elite signal-caller. Also, after the fantastic performance by Rihanna, who should the NFL tap for next year's halftime show?
Keiana Williams (RealMamaEagle on Twitter) joins us to talk about her career as a prominent content creator on Twitch as well as to help us preview Super Bowl LVII. Did we think Jalen Hurts was going to be THIS good? Is there any part of us that would be happy for Andy Reid if the Eagles don't win? And who are the dark horse MVP candidates for Sunday's game? We answer all of those questions and more - tune in!
It didn't happen the way anyone would have scripted it, but the Philadelphia Eagles are headed to the Super Bowl for the second time in six seasons. In less than two weeks, they'll be facing the Kansas City Chiefs, who are making their third appearance in the Big Game during the Patrick Mahomes Era. And while it's too early to get deep in the weeds of Super Bowl talk, we'll highlight the key points, including the fact that this is the first SB matchup ever between two black starting QBs.Later in the show, we'll recap a WILD night in San Antonio and Royal Rumble 2023 will go down in the record books as one of the greatest of all time.
The Philadelphia Eagles are one win away from the Super Bowl, and standing in their way is a red-hot San Francisco 49ers team that hasn't lost a game in more than two months. Speaking of hot, the 76ers are 19-4 in their last 23 games, and later this week, we get the long-awaited matchup between Joel Embiid vs. Ben Simmons. But all of that basketball talk takes a backseat with the Birds just 60 minutes away from a trip to Glendale...
We The Ones - The Broad Street Line Express - Episode 302
The No. 1 sports radio show in Philly links up with the No. 1 hip-hop podcast as Sivad Davis of Tissue in the Tape joins us on The Broad Street Line to discuss another set of No. 1s: The Eagles and the Chiefs, who finally get down to business in the NFL Playoffs this weekend. We also look forward to the Birds trip to Kansas City this fall, and we get Sivad's list of best hip-hop projects from last year.
