  1. Sixers Website is Not Good

    Jan 21, 2006, 2:22 PM EDT

    Anyone who is a Philly sports fan makes fun of Eagles website czar Dave Spadaro from time to time.  But if you compare the Eagles website to some of the other teams in Philly it is truly remarkable how great the Eagles website is in comparison.  For instance, check out the Sixers weekly feature titled…

  2. Ryan Howard Makes the Children Happy

    Jan 21, 2006, 1:17 PM EDT

    The Big Guy just keeps on bringing cheer to Philadelphia.  Ryan Howard showed up at an elementary school today in South Philly where they were painting a mural of him.  The kids sang happy birthday to Howard who turned 27 on Sunday.  Little kids are awesome — when they’re not whining little brats of course.…

  3. Best. Christmas. Ever.

    Jan 21, 2006, 11:11 AM EDT

    "What’s crazy about standing toe-to-toe sayin, I am" The latest full length trailer of Rocky Balboa has me counting down the days until Christmas.  Rocky Balboa is going to be one of those movies that is so bad that it’s amazing.  I’m going to see it just to watch Paulie.  I’m pretty sure he’s painting…

  4. Arnold vs. Rocky

    Jan 21, 2006, 8:33 AM EDT

    New post up over at the Rocky Balboa Blog featuring the first new image of the aging champion in the ring.  Remember people, his whole life was a million to one shot.

  5. MVP! MVP! MVP!

    Jan 21, 2006, 1:52 AM EDT

    The Phillies unfurled a giant 57 foot banner at Citizens Bank Park yesterday to honor Ryan Howard’s MVP award.  You can watch a video on in which Harry Kalas introduces The Big Guy.  The video has congratulations from Mike Schmidt, Dutch Daulton, Donovan McNabb, Governor Ed Rendell, Mike Knuble, Jaws, Sal Pal, Allen Iverson,…

  6. Ardmore Man Finishes 2nd in Philly Marathon

    Jan 20, 2006, 5:28 PM EDT

      Main Street Manayunk    Originally uploaded by Lo-Fi Adventures. Yesterday’s Philadelphia marathon was exhausting.  I had to walk block after block to get into prime position to catch a glimpse of the runners.  There was a great local story to come out of the marathon.  An Ardmore man came out of nowhere in only…

  7. More on Donovan’s Party

    Jan 20, 2006, 3:46 PM EDT

    Today’s Inquirer has some more details on Donovan’s Surprise 30th Birthday Party I told you about on Saturday: McNabb’s wife, Roxi, and his brother, Sean, were in charge of planning the event. Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and wife Christina and the bulk of the team came out to help McNabb celebrate his 30th, which is…

  8. Ryan Howard Wins NL MVP

    Jan 20, 2006, 2:20 PM EDT

    The way the ball has been bouncing for Philly sports lately I fully anticipated Albert Pujols winning the NL MVP honors.  When all else fails, we still have Ryan Howard.  Howard today was named the National League MVP.  Howard received 20 first place votes with Pujols receiving 12. After being named the top rookie in…

  9. Andre Waters Dead at 44

    Jan 20, 2006, 1:16 PM EDT

    Growing up, when I thought of a football player being a badass, Andre Waters was the first name to come to mind.  Blinq reports that Waters took his on life at the age of 44.  Waters on Philadelphia: Philadelphia Eagles fans are the best fans in America. They always treated me very special and they…

  10. Oh Fro-Hawk, Please Come Home

    Jan 20, 2006, 11:20 AM EDT

    Remember last years Superbowl team?  It wasn’t all that long ago.  Freddie Mitchell sporting his Fro Hawk, Terrell running all over people, those were the days.  The Eagles have become a somewhat boring team since then.  I haven’t had a whole lot of fuel for my blogging fire. But Jaws is trying to give us…

  11. No More Women Wrestling in Their Underwear While Soaking Wet

    Jan 20, 2006, 9:47 AM EDT

    Ben Franklin’s 300th birthday was the other day and if we could only take one of his countless quotes to heart it would have to be, "Beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy."  With that being said, the beer industry has been taking a hit as of late and…

    Fanhouse: McNabb Done for Season with Torn ACL

  14. Soriano Signs with Cubs for 136 million

    Jan 19, 2006, 4:22 PM EDT

    $136 million.  Wow, just wow.  MSNBC: Chicago radio station ESPN 1000 reported Sunday that the Cubs have signed outfielder Alfonso Soriano to an eight-year contract worth approximately $136 million. 8 Years?!?  Perhaps it’s a good thing the Phillies didn’t get sucked into the Soriano bidding war.  I’m glad the Phillies didn’t shell out that kind…

  15. Isiah Thomas vs. Sports Guy

    Jan 19, 2006, 3:25 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas was one of the best ever at running the show on the court but I think its safe to say he is horrible at running a professional basketball team from up above.  Isiah recently lashed out at who I like to think of as the first sports blogger, Bill Simmons, better known as…

  16. Donovan McNabb’s Surprise 30th Birthday Bash

    Jan 18, 2006, 1:58 PM EDT

    There was a Hip Hop show at the World Cafe Live upstairs last night featuring a number of Philly artists celebrating November being Hip Hop History month.  While the beats were spinning upstairs, Donovan McNabb’s wife was throwing a surprise birthday party for the Bird’s leader a few floors below. As my girlfriend and I…

  18. Philly Pretty Miserable

    Jan 18, 2006, 12:14 AM EDT

    After coming up with the 9th most miserable moment in NFL history, Philly comes in at number 4 among miserable baseball franchises as picked by ESPN’s Page2: 4. Philadelphia Phillies More than a century in the majors and exactly one world championship. No wonder Philly fans often feel like they just went the distance with…

  19. Stallworth on Eskin

    Jan 17, 2006, 6:16 PM EDT

    Donte Stallworth was a guest on WIP’s Howard Eskin show this evening for well over an hour.  Donte comes off as a very bright, open, and interesting guy.  Perhaps the funniest part of the appearance was Stallworth’s constant references to Madden.  Donte told Eskin that he traded himself to the Eagles three years ago in…

  20. Second Place isn’t Completely Worthless

    Jan 17, 2006, 10:19 AM EDT

    For the Phillies players at least.  This year’s World Series created a ton of money for the teams and players involved.  Check out this article which breaks it all down.  What I found interesting was the little note at the bottom about how some of the teams that didn’t even make the playoffs got a…

  21. Aging, Overpaid, & Unhappy

    Jan 17, 2006, 9:02 AM EDT

    It didn’t take long for Chris Webber to change his tune.  A week ago he was all about putting the team first.  This morning’s Sacramento Bee says Webber is unhappy and wants to be put in a situation where he can play more ball.  For those not paying attention to the Sixers, CWebb sat the…

  22. Americans Are Stupid (Golden Globe Content)

    Jan 17, 2006, 12:24 AM EDT

    Desperate Housewives wins an award for BEST COMEDY over Curb Your Enthusiasm AND Entourage and a bunch of other shows I’m sure are funnier than desperate old ladies.  Who votes for these things?  Americans are stupid. Other random thoughts:-Sara Jessica Parker is ugly and annoying.-What the hell did Seal do right? I like lists:11. Queen…

  24. Iverson to Pay for Murdered Man’s Funeral

    Jan 16, 2006, 9:31 AM EDT

    While I’m sure most murders in Philadelphia have tragic stories behind them, this one is just mindless: On June 24, 2003, a group of teens approached Johnson while he was waiting for a trolley and demanded he give up the Iverson jersey he was wearing. When he refused, Johnson was shot in the back of…

  25. Iggy Coming Into Form?

    Jan 16, 2006, 9:07 AM EDT

    While most of us were sleeping, the Sixers ended Seattle’s nice little 3 game winning streak last night.  Phil Jasner in this morning’s Daily News was impressed with the type of game the other A.I. had: This was the Iguodala the Sixers must have. This was the multitalented, multipositional athlete everyone – including himself -…
