Eagles, Phillies Shared Gigantic Porn Stash At Veterans Stadium In the ’90s


Sure, you know Hollis Thomas as the defensive line coach for the Arena Football League’s Philadelphia Soul. But he was also a defensive tackle in the NFL for 12 seasons, most notably for the Eagles from 1996-2005.

So Hollis has been there, man. And when he says that the Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies shared a big blue chest of porn magazines at Veterans Stadium, you can believe him.

Yep, that’s what Hollis said while chatting this morning on the 94WIP radio Morning Show. CBS Sports:

“[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,” Thomas said Thursday on the 94WIP Morning Show. “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?’”

The Eagles and the Phillies shared the Vet, and the locker room area, from 1971 through 2002. The stadium was demolished in 2004.

“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.”

Awesome story, but we’ll need some confirmation, of course.
