With the Flyers on the road in Montreal (CSN / 94 WIP) and the Temple Owls still down in Texas (TCN / 1210 AM), surely there must be some pseudo-sporting going down in Philly tonight, right?

For the first time in the 68-game history of the Holy War, the Villanova Wildcats are scheduled to step foot on the campus of St. Joseph’s University. If that isn’t good enough to get you going, then I don’t what is.

Temple’s matchup with Wyoming is the Owls’ second bowl appearance in the last three seasons, but only their third in the last thirty-three. Having lost the 2009 EagleBank Bowl to UCLA, the program has not claimed a postseason victory since 1979. Fortunately for their hopes of making history, they’ve drawn a very favorable opponent in the Cowboys.

Bowl bids, especially in the modern era (when you can qualify even with a losing record), may not mean a lot to other institutions, but they certainly do to Temple. Such an appreciation for what others take for granted is no doubt the product of a history graced with such an opportunity a mere three times over the last thirty-three seasons.

From deflections to well-placed screens to a general lack of preparedness from not one, but two Capitals goalies, the Flyers proved on Tuesday night that good things do indeed happen when you put the puck on net.

Shout out to the St. Joe’s Hawks on their big win over Creighton. But you tell us, was their celebration a violation?

Big 5 game. Big East controversy. Big student roll outs. This has the potential to special. The Temple Owls are set to host the Villanova Wildcats from inside the Apollo on Broad. Tip-off is scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday evening (ESPN 2 / 1210 AM).

What can be said for Kapono’s time as a Sixer? No, really, that wasn’t rhetorical. Help us out here.

We are now less than one month away from the 2012 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park and just six days away from the premiere of HBO’s Flyers-Rangers 24/7 series. With things starting to come together and take shape, we’re back with another one of these amusing time lapses, slowly (or, I guess, quickly) revealing the changes to CBP in preparation for the week-long outdoor events schedule.

Word is now out that Madson has declined arbitration with the club, effectively ending his time with the Phightins, save for some head-spinning move on the part of Ruben Amaro. Mad Dog leaves town not just with a World Series ring, but also (little known fact) with a staggering number of the club’s minor league records for starting pitchers.
Dec 7, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT
Though we were hearing that “money and length” were the sticking points of the ongoing Jimmy Rollins-Philadelphia Phillies free agent talks—as if that were “breaking” news—we’re also hearing that Jimmy might be on his way back to town…maybe.

Multiple reports are now out that the Miami Marlins have made a 10-year offer to first baseman Albert Pujols. An exact dollar figure has not been confirmed, though the number $22 million per is getting tossed around quite a bit by the relevant baseball heads on Twitter.
