Which naturally begs the question: Just what kind of candy bar are we discussing?

No town is immune from a certain level of apathy nor from bandwagoning. Philadelphians, even if we’d like to think otherwise, are no better.

Things have undoubtedly changed in professional sports, but here’s one Hall of Famer so apparently fed up with autograph chicken scratch that he had to write about it.
Plus, Manny Ramirez’s sig really is kind of a joke.

Aside from the contract talks over the first half of the season, Cole Hamels’ performance on the field has almost flown under the radar this season.
But he’s accomplished something only two other Phillies pitchers ever have.
Oct 1, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT
Claude Giroux is reportedly considering joining either HC Kladno in the Czech league or Avangard Omsk in the KHL.
Now take a wild guess at who owns / is playing for Kladno.

Ordinarily, this might be a red flag kind of deal. But I really do love me some German blood spinning.

Tune in at 10:30 p.m. to hear from the people who have covered, announced and even participated in the last 15 years of Philadelphia sports.
You’ll see some things you didn’t remember. You’ll see other things you wish you didn’t remember. And you’ll see even more that you’ll never forget.

For as great as he was on the field, it’s not been uncommon over the past week to hear former teammates and members of the local media refer to Brian Dawkins as an even better person than he was a football player.
This story, published on Friday over on 6ABC.com, only adds to that impression.

Think Mike Vick will be under pressure to perform on Sunday night?
He’ll probably be under even more pressure from a Giants defense that’s given him considerable trouble over the last two seasons.
It’s time for Vick, Reid and Mornhinweg to show what, if anything, they’ve really learned.

The 2012 campaign will likely reach its meaningful end this weekend. Things could wrap up as early as this evening.
Here’s the situation: If the Phillies lose, they are mathematically eliminated from postseason play. If the Cardinals win, same thing. If both the Phillies and Cardinals lose, you guessed it. That’s what happens when you’re six back with six to play. In this weekend’s Ryder Cup, they call that “dormie,” ladies and gents.

Weapon X is now getting the official X-Men treatment thanks to the fine people at Marvel Comics.
The above poster, created by Marvel artist Jorge Molina, will be distributed to Eagles fans as they enter the stadium prior to Sunday night’s Eagles-Giants game and the ceremony to retire Brian Dawkins’ No. 20.
Full photo inside.

Some final notes on Temple’s long-standing futility against Penn State, and an injury update that will impact the key matchup in today’s game.
Sep 20, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT
As you’ll see inside, apparently we’re not the only ones familiar with the stylings of Dan Carcillo and Evgeni Malkin. The league office is, too.
Have a favorite hockey dive? Mention it in the comments and leave a link if you can.

Panotch has confirmed a report initially from TheFourthPeriod.com that Ilya Bryzgalov has signed with CSKA of the KHL. Bryzgalov reportedly intended to move back to Russia during the lockout, so he’ll be playing a little hockey while he’s at it.

Big East commissioner Mike Aresco admitted two weeks ago that a 14th team would make sense for his conference. Now it appears a few familiar names are back in the picture.
Oh, and Temple could be playing on blue turf every now and again.

The Phillies and Mets are rained out, but this Pirates-Brewers series is pretty important if you’re looking for something to keep an eye on.
Sep 12, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT
The latest update in the on-going “Mike Vick can’t make up his mind about just what kind of quarterback he wants to be” saga appears to have Vick willing to take on all defensive comers.
Still, is “style” really the problem?
Sep 12, 2012, 11:52 AM EDT
The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Wednesday morning that it has accepted Notre Dame as a member for all sports excluding football.
ND is the sixth school the ACC has poached from the Big East in the last decade. Might it take another? What now for the Big East’s on-going transformation?

Just how bad was Temple in the first half? Check out these numbers…
Sep 8, 2012, 4:53 PM EDT
Sophomore Sam Ficken didn’t attempt any field goals against Ohio in Week 1, but tried five today.
Unfortunately for Penn State, who lost 17-16 to Virginia in Charlottesville, he missed four of them, including the potential game-winner as time expired.

Fresh off a 41-10 win over Villanova in the Mayor’s Cup, Temple takes on its first FBS opponent of the season Saturday when it hosts Maryland at the Linc (Noon / ESPNU).
Check out these six quick-hitters to get you prepped for kickoff.

As you can see, he’s stuck with the tiger motif. But this time, there’s also a phoenix on the chin, flanked on either side by Flyers logos, while St. Basil’s Cathedral is displayed prominently on the crown.

It’s kind of a flawed list considering where one of Philadelphia’s other teams sits in the pack, but your 76ers are earning some national love. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.
Sep 4, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT
Alright, think of where you went to school. Now think of a local rival you didn’t particularly care for. Now think of yourself wearing one of their t-shirts. Sucks, right?
