Here’s a recap of Syracuse’s scrimmage versus Vermont from

Syracuse lacrosse is three weeks out from its season opener, and the Orange on Sunday finally got a chance to do something it hadn’t done since its NCAA Tournament loss against Towson last May.

It got a chance to measure its progress, to evaluate a host of underclassmen and new contributors to the main lineup against a different color uniform.

”Kids were itching to get on the field,” sophomore FOGO Danny Varello said. “Fall ended early, and kids are kind of lost without lacrosse, so it’s kind of a big thing to take a break. When we were on the break, kids got really antsy.”

Remember, a mumps outbreak on campus sabotaged the fall season, canceling any scrimmage opportunities while the team dealt with the health scare. So, there was intense curiosity during a 21-8 outcome against Vermont inside the Ensley Athletic Center to see which players would rise up in game-like conditions.

Here are some pictures from the scrimmage yesterday.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

The Eagles are going to the Super Bowl!!! |

After the confetti flew and fireworks erupted and 69,596 fans sang “Fly, Eagles, Fly!” while the Eagles hoisted the NFC championship trophy, coach Doug Pederson gathered his team in the locker room and uttered a proclamation that hasn’t been heard in Philadelphia in 13 years. “We’re going to the Super Bowl!” Pederson said. “We’re going to the stinkin’ Super Bowl!”

A season that started when players showered Pederson with Gatorade following a season-opening win continued with another Gatorade bath late in the Eagles’ 38-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC championship game on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field. They now have a Feb. 4 date with the New England Patriots in Minneapolis. “We’re not only going to Minneapolis,” owner Jeffrey Lurie told the crowd. “We have something to do in Minneapolis. One more win!”

Best Tweet of the night has to go to the Philadelphia Police Department.

I’m ready to give Nick Foles a long term contract.

Party Time!!!

Center City was definitely where the party was at last night after the game. Here are a bunch of videos I took from Broad St. after the Eagles won. Warning: Some of the videos contain NSFW language.

This is very #OnBrand: Nicholas Cage once blew $150 million on a private island and a dinosaur skull—here’s everything he bought.

Best known for his roles in movies such as “National Treasure” and “Leaving Las Vegas,” Nicolas Cage was once a top earner in Hollywood, worth $150 million. But Cage didn’t hold on to his fortune for long.

He squandered it away on a string of expensive and often eccentric purchases, eventually facing foreclosure on several properties and owing the IRS $6.3 million in property taxes. Now worth around $25 million, Cage is taking roles left and right to help pay off his debts. As chronicled in CNBC’s “The Filthy Rich Guide,” here’s a glimpse at some of Cage’s craziest purchases.
