CLEARWATER, FLORIDA - MARCH 02: Bryce Harper is introduced to the Philadelphia Phillies by General Manager Matt Klentak during a press conference at Spectrum Stadium on March 02, 2019 in Clearwater, Florida.

See what Andrew Salciunas found in the Audio Vault today! Every day Andrew dives into the Vault, to pull out audio from sports and entertainment moments relevant to the day. Today that included a couple of famous Birthdays. The anniversary of Bryce Harper signing with the Phillies. Carson Wentz being released by Washington. And a sting operation luring in criminals with a promise of NFL tickets. Here is the lineup from Today’s Vault.

  • Carson Wentz Career-High In Philly

    At this point, we can look back on the Carson Wentz era and know he didn’t work out. But in 2017 we were all sure he was the guy. And to his credit, he was fantastic back then. One of the best plays from his time here was when he threw a record-setting TD vs the Rams, despite playing on a torn ACL. For all the flaws he had, and there are many of them, you can’t deny that he was fantastic that season. And despite eventually showing his lack of mental toughness, this TD proved he was the least physically tough.

  • Carson Wentz Career Low in Philly

    But there were also many crushing lows. Notably in his last year with the Eagles where he was among the worst starting Qbs in the league. Andrew pulled the pick 6  Wentz threw against the Browns that season, which as you will hear him describe was like a bingo sheet for all the repetitive mistakes Wentz made late in his time with the Eagles.

  • Bryce Harper Signs with The Phillies

    4 years ago today, Bryce Harper agreed to a deal with the Phillies. Man has that worked out. We saw the impact a bat like Harper can have on the playoff run last year. Since signing here, Harper has won an MVP, and carried the Phillies to a World Series, although they lost. And now, that once record-setting contract looks like a discount for a player of Harper’s caliber.

  • Happy 50th Birthday Eric Lindros

    And today is also the 50th Birthday of Flyers Legend Eric Lindros. So in the Vault today, Andrew played a couple of iconic Lindros moments. Including when Lindros went through a shift mostly without his stick, only to later score once he got his stick back, and then his debut where he had two trips to the penalty box, but also scored his first career goal on a Power Play.


  • Happy Birthday JT Snow

    It is also the birthday of former Baseball player JT Snow. if you have listened to Anthony Gargano for a while, you may know that he is not the biggest fan of Snow after covering him back in the day. But there is one moment from his career that does leave JT Snow in a good light. Snow once saved Dusty Baker’s son in the 2002 World Series. The was a double off the wall. Darren Baker was serving as the Giants’ batboy. But the young kid was running to the plate to pick up the bat, while a player was coming around third to score. Thankfully Snow acted fast and scooped Dusty’s kid up saving him from a collision at the plate. And Andrew played that today in the Audio Vault.

  • Police Use Tickets to Washington Game To Lure in Wanted Criminals

    Andrew also pulled something he recently saw on Twitter. He found a video of a sting operation Police pulled back in the day, where they lured wanted criminals in with offers of free tickets to a Washington Football team game. And he pulled a snippet from the Audio of the Operation to play for us today.

    @thinksmartwealth In 1985, the police sent free Super Bowl tickets to wanted criminals just to arrest them when they arrived to the stadium #thinksmartwealth #learnontiktok #chatgpt #wealth #superbowl #fyp #police #makemoneyfromhome ♬ original sound – Thinksmartwealth
