On Thursday night I had the opportunity to attend the induction ceremony for the Class of 2023 for the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame.  The event was held at the Live Casino and Event Center where the inductees included Bernard Hopkins, Bill Giles, Carlos Ruiz, Jay Wright, and Jeremiah Trotter just to name a few.  It was a Who’s Who of high-profile Philadelphia Sports stars from over the years.  You can hear my interviews with some of the inductees on Saturday's edition of The Locker Room with Billy Schweim.

I did not forget that it is Dallas week!  The Eagles host the most hated team for Birds fans, the Cowboys are coming to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday, Kickoff is at 4:25 and you can hear all the action on 97.3 ESPN Radio with Merrill Reese and Mike Quick.  The Eagles are 7-1 and can increase the lead in the NFC East with a win over the 5-2 Cowboys.  Is the rivalry as intense as ever or are the Cowboys just another team on the schedule?  After being torched by Sam Howell with 4 Touchdown Passes last week, can the Eagles defensive secondary stop Dak Prescott and The Boys? 

We will hype it up this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim and I want to remind you to come join us on Sunday as we broadcast Live from the Caesars Sports Book inside the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City.  We broadcast live from 10 am to 12 pm each Sunday of the NFL season.

On Saturday’s show, former Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Dave Klemic and Producer Nick Earnshaw join me in the studio.  We will play my interviews with some of this year's inductees to the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame.  The Eagles vs Cowboys rivalry will be a hot topic through out the show!  In Hour Two we always talk with the Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan checking in Live from Las Vegas with his thoughts on this weekend's action.  Plus we will hear from Mike Doctorvitz who writes a column for thelockerroombillyschweim.com.  Mike D gives us his takes on the Eagles, Sixers and Flyers. 

On Sunday’s Show, we invite you to join me, Mike Carlin, and Josh Hennig as we broadcast Live from the Caesars Sports Book inside the Tropicana Atlantic City.  We will get you ready for Week Nine of the NFL season and breakdown the Eagles matchup with the Cowboys.  Every Sunday throughout the football season we get the “Keys to the Game” with Fox 29 News Sports Anchor and 973 ESPN Eagles Writer Scott Grayson brought to you by Blitz’s Market in Ocean City.  In Hour Two we will talk with my Fantasy Football Guru Brian Hartley brought to you by Charlie’s Bar and Restaurant in Somers Point.  "The Guru" gives us his best plays for week nine in the NFL.

All that and more this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim heard every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to Noon on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey.
