  1. We Talkin’ Bout After Practice

    Jan 30, 2006, 9:12 AM EDT

    The Sixers had a meet-and-greet last night at Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes.  Allen Iverson decided he didn’t want to go to the mandatory team function and will be fined by the team.  He also left practice early and there was some sort of confrontation with Mo Cheeks. A source said Iverson was upset when he…

  2. Superbowl XL & Monday Extras

    Jan 30, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    I’ve always had a penchant for clown shoes, so an article in yesterday’s New York Times gave me another reason to cheer for Seatle in the big game: When he was playing at Boston College, and Coach Dan Henning informed him that he would not be the starting quarterback, Hasselbeck famously told Henning, "You should…

  3. Plot Details of Rocky Balboa

    Jan 30, 2006, 12:16 AM EDT

    Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer has a nice look at some of the details from the next chapter in the Rocky saga: Here’s how it goes: The long-suffering Adrian – the girl Rocky met in the Kensington pet shop in the original – is dead. Rocky owns a restaurant in South Philadelphia. He’s pals with Adrian’s brother…

  4. Dunphy Gets a W at TU

    Jan 30, 2006, 12:14 AM EDT

    Christmas came early on North Broad Street last night and it was Frantastic! Wow, that felt good saying.  Dionte Christmas scored a career high 27 points to lead the Temple Owls on to their first win under head coach Fran Dunphy. We here at The 700 Level are fans of Dunphy.  I had an extensive…

  6. There’s Nothing Like a Pretty Pitch

    The universality of soccer is fascinating.  A photographer from the Netherlands takes amazing photos of soccer fields across Europe.  [via kottke]

  7. What Will We Do Without Stephen A.?

    Jan 29, 2006, 1:03 PM EDT

    So it looks like the Inquirer and Daily News employees are going on strike Thursday night and launching their own competing website to Philly.com. The real question we should all be concerned about: what will we do without our usual dose of Stephen A. Smith?  Although it looks like he hasn’t put out a column…

  8. The Young Answer

    Jan 29, 2006, 9:16 AM EDT

    Found this exceprt from Larry Platt’s book Only the Strong Survive about Allen Iverson. In the locker room, Iverson’s teammate and close friend Xavier Gunn called a twenty-minute team meeting. "Allen, you’re selfish," he said. Iverson leaped to his feet. "How can I be selfish when I average ten assists a game?" "Not the basketball…

  9. It’s Not Always About the Money

    Jan 29, 2006, 12:02 AM EDT

    Randy Wolf reportedly got offered more money by both the Phillies and Arizona, but Wolf decided to follow his dream and put on Dodger blue: "I think every kid grows up wanting to play for the team he watched," Wolf said. "I grew up in the LA area and have many fond memories of going…

  10. End of the Wolf Pack

    Jan 28, 2006, 3:23 PM EDT

    With Adam Eaton returning to the Phils, Randy Wolf moved on to the Dodgers.  The Wolf Pack is no more.  Randy was a fan favorite not too long ago, but with all the time he missed the Wolf Pack lost much of its luster.  Let’s all hope that the right field nose bleed faithful don’t…

  11. The Teflon Playmaker

    The Big Lead comes up with a great nickname for Philly’s hated nemesis.

  12. A.I. drops 45 in Sixers Loss

    Jan 28, 2006, 9:32 AM EDT

    Iverson had another forty point effort last night against the Heat putting up 45 points in a loss to Dwayne Wade’s squad.  Iverson’s flurry of scoring hasn’t resulted in much in terms of wins and the Sixers have slowed down considerably after their fast start.  Wade led Miami with 33, 13, and 7. While the…

  13. WATN: Cecil Martin

    Jan 28, 2006, 8:17 AM EDT

    A reader points out that Cecil Martin is seen "in Europe filling the time during commercials of Sky Sports NFL telecasts."  Not a bad gig. >>2001: Did McNabb get head from Martin? [City Paper]

  14. FredEx Delivering for the Youth of Indiana

    Jan 27, 2006, 2:33 PM EDT

    Dear FredEx, Please, please, please come play for the Soul.  Please.  They have to pay you more than that substitute teaching job people are claiming you took. Sincerely,Philadelphia

  15. One Hit After Another

    Jan 27, 2006, 11:00 AM EDT

    I can’t say I was alive during the original airing of any of these videos but after viewing them, the tune to Welcome Back, Kotter has been stuck in my head for hours.  This clip features Tim McCarver, then Phillies player who came out of retirement in order to say he played in four different…

  16. Blogger Interviews Charlie Manuel

    Jan 27, 2006, 10:35 AM EDT

    The Beerleaguer caught up with the Phillies on their winter tour and got to chat with Charlie Manuel and Pat Gillick.  His impressions of Charlie were great while his take on Pat Gillick wasn’t all roses.  J. Weitzel spoke to Manuel for about 15 minutes and will be posting audio of the interview at some…

  17. Wing Bowl 15: Philly vs. The World

    Jan 27, 2006, 8:59 AM EDT

    If there ever was a year a diversion was needed from the Eagles in December, this seems to be the one.  Angelo Cataldi announced this year’s theme to Wing Bowl XV today: Philly vs. The World.  What this means is that only 5 of the contestants entered will be allowed to be members of the…

  18. D-What? D-Who?

    Jan 27, 2006, 1:23 AM EDT

    Defense?  Yeah, I don’t think the Eagles know what that is anymore. A.I. dropped 46, 10, and 5 to help the Sixers beat the Bulls on Friday but Philly fell to the impressive King James and the Cavs on Satuday night. [NBA] Fox’s Ken Rosenthal says the Dodgers are close to landing Randy Wolf. [Fox]…

  20. Brian Dawkins Named to Pro Bowl

    Jan 26, 2006, 9:14 AM EDT

    It’s nice to see a class guy like Dawkins get the nod to go to Hawaii, even if he didn’t have a phenomenal year.  I think it’s safe to say BDawk is Mr. Eagle; It’s hard to find an Eagles fan who doesn’t love the guy.  I’ll never forget the 4th and 26th game where…

  21. Frank Stallone Sighting!

    Jan 26, 2006, 8:58 AM EDT

    Sly, and more importantly, his brother Frank Stallone were spending some time yesterday in South Philly and SallyMae Mosley was hot on the trail of the Stallone brothers: Filming for the 6th Rocky movie continues.  Today, Stallone and crew spent the day at the Italian Market. His roots are in Philadelphia’s Italian Market. To prove…

  22. LeBron’s Crazy Dunk; Stern Hurts Fans

    Jan 25, 2006, 12:01 PM EDT

    You must check out the crazy dunk LeBron James pulled off in warm ups the other night. [The Basketball Jones] The Jones also points us to a very interesting article at Hoop’s World detailing David Stern’s mission to make the NBA less fun and less fan friendly. As debilitating as these actions have been towards…

  23. Sixer Lee Nailon Arrested

    Jan 25, 2006, 8:25 AM EDT

    Sixer All Star Lee Nailon was arrested yesterday for apparently beating his wife: "It has come to our attention that Lee Nailon has been arrested today by Lower Merion police on allegations of a domestic incident," Sixers president and general manager Billy King said in a statement released before last night’s game. "We have no…

  24. You Could Make Ryan Howard’s Bats for 2 Million

    Jan 24, 2006, 6:12 PM EDT

    So this only loosely pertains to Ryan Howard, but the company from which he gets his bats is up for sale and it’s quite the interesting story.  The man who started the company put it up for sale on ebay for $3.5 million.  Nobody bid on it, but it is expected to sell for somewhere…
