Philadelphia: All I need to get by

🏒The Flyers’ triple: After his team barely skirted the New York Islanders in overtime on Saturday, Flyers left winger Joel Farabee came out with a vengeance, scoring three goals in the first two periods last night.

  • Teammate Kevin Hayes joined in on the fun, scoring in overtime to fend off the Isles’ comeback and secure the Flyers’ 4–3 win. Phew.

🏀The Sixers’ talent: The Sixers topped the Indiana Pacers last night, winning 119–110. But lately, 15-year-old fan Sadie — who blesses Twitter with her piano rendition of “Here Come the Sixers” after big wins — has been stealing the spotlight. She’s received love from other fans and players, and is spreading the joy of sports across the internet. Again: kids these days!

⚾️The Phillies’ team: The Phillies re-signed shortstop Didi Gregorious to a two-year deal over the weekend. Gregorious, who hit 10 home runs in last year’s shortened season, is just the latest free agent the front office has locked down this offseason. Lefty pitcher Matt Moore also re-signed this weekend, collecting three million dollars from the large stack of cash the Phillies are throwing at players.

  • These moves (and the money) make it clear that the owners are willing to do what it takes to win, and TBH, we’re all for it.
