  • Phils emboldened by Kapler's spring message

  • 'Bold' choice: NFL champ Kelce talks to Phillies
    Jason Kelce made Chase Utley's infamous World Series championship speech seem tame a couple of weeks ago, when he dropped a wildly celebrated, but profanity-laden speech about the Eagles, underdogs and championships on the steps of the Philadelphia art museum.
