Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium was known for a lot of things – having a jail, one of the worst AstroTurf fields in the world – but now you can something else to that list.  The home of a giant blue chest of porn. Former Eagle Hollis Thomas told the 94 WIP morning show in Philly the details. “[The Phillies] did have an awesome… we used to share like the shower and rest room area at the Vet, and they had an awesome collection of porn. They did, it was just like a bunch of books in there.  It was just in a chest. When I first got there I was like, ‘What is this?’ They was like, ‘This is reading material’. I was like, ‘Reading material?’” Thomas said that the blue chest of reading material was not a secret. “Everybody knows about the blue chest,” he said. “It was an array, a pretty good array of magazines. You actually had a variety too. It was almost like a newsstand, put it that way. Actually, yeah, it was the precursor to the internet. You just picked up one, and there was a little sign that said when you’re done with the book, put it back. I did get a couple of books where the pages were stuck together.” This has the 1993 Phillies written all over it. The post Veterans Stadium Was Home To Sports’ Largest Porn Collection appeared first on Ride The Pine.

Pitino on Chris Jones: As good a guard as I've coached

Rick Pitino has coached some pretty good guards during his nearly 40-year career in college basketball.  Recently at Louisville, there was Russ Smith, the two-time All-American, and Peyton Siva, the point guard who led the Cardinals to a national championship in 2013.
