With Christmas Day coming up the Monday after this weekend three days away, The Locker Room with Billy Schweim and my crew including Mike Carlin, Dave Klemic, Josh Hennig, Nick Earnshaw, and Danny Ryan wants to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

I wrote to Santa Claus and asked for Five presents for Philly sports teams this year:

The first gift I want is for the Eagles to turn it around and win convincingly over the Giants on Christmas Day.  We need good vibes this holiday season for the Birds.

My second request is for Santa to give us continued inspired hockey by the Flyers, plus get a bonafide goal scorer at the trade deadline (not asking for too much here).

Third, I want the Phillies to get a pitcher to solidify their rotation.  The Dodgers just signed another high-profile pitcher in Yoshinobu Yamamoto, so I need Santa Claus to get in touch with Phillies President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski.

Fourth, I want the Sixers to stay healthy.  Joel Embiid had a monster month of December averaging 41.4 points in eight games while shooting shooting 92.5 from the foul line along with 12.9 rebounds per game.  A healthy Embiid means a deep postseason run for the 76ers. 

My last wish is that one of our teams win a Championship this season!  Only two Philadelphia sports teams have won titles in their sports this century: the 2008 Phillies and the 2017 Eagles.

Just because this Sunday is Christmas Eve, The Locker Room with Billy Schweim is still broadcasting Live from the Caesars SportsBook inside the Tropicana Atlantic City for NFL Week 16! 

On Saturday’s show, former Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Dave Klemic and Producer Nick Earnshaw will join me in the studio.  We talk about the week in Philly sports and get you ready for the Eagles vs Giants game on Christmas Day.  We will have a special guest call into the show during the first hour who is beloved by Eagles fans, so don't miss tuning in!  Hour Two we will hear from the Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan Live from Las Vegas.  "The Book" gives us his unique perspective on betting this weekend's action. Plus we will talk about the two best teams in Philadelphia right now: the Flyers and Sixers!

On Sunday, join me, Mike Carlin, and Josh Hennig as we broadcast Live from the Caesars Sports Book inside the Tropicana to get you ready for the NFL Sunday action.  The Eagles play the Giants on Christmas day so we will 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.  Then Hour Two we talk more NFL with my Fantasy Football Guru Brian Hartley brought to you by Charlie’s Bar in Somers Point.  "The Guru" will tell us who are the hot plays for NFL Week 16.

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.
