  1. 20.7 Mil to Sit the Bench in Crunch Time

    Jan 13, 2006, 9:23 AM EDT

    A nice article today by the Inquirer’s Joe Juliano on the Sixers $20.7 million dollar man who doesn’t see much action in the fourth quarter. All the hope and optimism that Chris Webber expressed during the preseason, when he felt confident he would play more like the player he was before major knee surgery in…

  2. Google Video & NBA Team Up

    Jan 13, 2006, 12:39 AM EDT

    If you are a geek of any kind you know that this past week was CES where Google announced an online video store among other things.  Usually, Google knows what they are doing, but their partnership with the NBA has me puzzled a bit.  You can now purchase a video of an NBA game for…

  3. Eagles Crush Skins

    Jan 13, 2006, 12:32 AM EDT

    I wrote a short game recap as well as a short picture post over at the Fanhouse but I thought I’d comment here about Brian Dawkins.  Sitting behind the Eagles bench gives you an amazing look at the passion Brian Dawkins brings on every play.  When he’s not in the game pumping his teammates up…

  4. Eagles Fans Aren’t All Bad

    Jan 12, 2006, 2:51 PM EDT

    The Eagles message board can be a dangerous place for the uninitiated.  I’ve been a member since March of 2004 but am more of a lurker than an active participant.  Over at All Spin Zone they tell a tale of Eagles fans coming together and forming real life relationships through their common love for our…

  5. Irish Rugby Stomps South Africa 32-15

    Jan 12, 2006, 9:59 AM EDT

    Editors Note: Enrico’s former roommate is now The700Level’s foreign correspondent who resides in the capital city of Ireland. This report comes from Scott in Dublin. I went to the Ireland v South Africa rugby match at Lansdowne Road. After going down 3-0 early, Andrew Trimble took a great pass from Ronan O’Gara in for a…

  6. Terrell Owens For Dirty Socks

    Jan 12, 2006, 1:01 AM EDT

    It was reported yesterday that the Eagles are allowing Drew Rosenhaus to seek a trade for Terrell Owens from the Eagles.  Ray Ratto got this one perfectly right, note the headline:       "The Philadelphia Eagles       have given agent Drew Rosenhaus permission to seek a trade for Terrell       Owens, though it’s…

  7. Wing Bowl 14: The Virgin Wing Bowl

    Jan 11, 2006, 9:20 AM EDT

    Philly.com has a whole section dedicated to Wing Bowl 14, Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti’s twisted brain child.  There are videos of both successful and failed eating stunts as well as a few of wingettes wearing very little.  This year’s competition has been dubbed the Virgin Wing Bowl, with no former contestants being allowed entry,…

  8. Fans Show Up; Flyers Don’t

    Jan 10, 2006, 9:30 AM EDT

    East Rutherford, NJ –  Flyers fans headed up the Jersey Turnpike last night in droves to watch the Flyguys play the Devils at Continental Airlines Arena.  I’ve been working outside of New York City for the past few weeks so I was in the neighborhood to catch the Flyers get destroyed.  The hockey was lack…

  10. Rumored Tale of Iverson with Nas’ Woman

    Jan 9, 2006, 9:41 PM EDT

    ‘‘Me and the boy A.I. got more in common / Than just ballin’ and rhymin’ / Get it? More in Carmen / I came in your Bentley backseat, skeeted in your Jeep / Left condoms on your baby seat. . . .”                       —Jay-Z (“Super Ugly”) Nas, Jay-Z,…

  11. Featured Blog at Philly Future

    Jan 9, 2006, 4:49 PM EDT

    I’ve been selected as the feature blog over at Philly Future. They asked me to answer a few questions for those who never sat in the 700 Level. 1. How long have you been blogging? I’ve been doing The 700 Level for a little over a year. Prior to that I had a personal blog…

  12. NYT: Larry Brown Got 18.5 to Go Away

    Jan 9, 2006, 1:02 PM EDT

    NYTimes (via): Larry Brown’s chaotic 331-day term as coach of the Knicks netted him $28.5 million — or $1.24 million for each of the 23 victories he posted last season — after he was awarded $18.5 million in a settlement with the team. Jesus.  We’re all in the wrong profession.  Why couldn’t I have been…

  13. Futures Market for Eagles Superbowl Tickets

    Jan 9, 2006, 10:27 AM EDT

    One of my favorite website’s Wired.com posted an interesting piece about futures markets for Superbowl tickets which focuses on the experience of two Eagles fans: The market opened at midnight, and the brothers jumped right in. After a few minutes, with the option price at $150, Paul spent $1,200 for the right to buy eight…

  14. Urkel & Freddie Mitchell Chillin at the Mansion

    Jan 9, 2006, 9:19 AM EDT

    With Leather points out that Freddie Mitchell and Urkel have been chillin at the Playboy mansion.  I knew they were boys as I pointed out a year or so ago, but I didn’t realize they had credentials to get into the mansion.  WL writes: I remember when I would have sawed off my left arm…

  15. ESPN’s Crasnick on Burrell

    Jan 9, 2006, 12:18 AM EDT

    "The danger when you enter into a contract of that magnitude is that you’re probably signing a guy at his peak time," an American League executive said. "Your emotions are high and he’s coming off a great year, and you say, ‘We’re not going to move him anyway. Let’s give him a no-trade.’ Three years…

  16. Chris Bosh Has Skills

    Jan 9, 2006, 12:13 AM EDT

    Bosh made 3 ridiculous shots in the final few minutes, including the game winner, to lead the Raptors over the Sixers.  His performance was impressive.  It was an exciting finish, but the Sixers fall to 3-2. >>Video Highlights [NBA.com]>>Bosh’s shot sinks Sixers in Toronto [Inquirer]

  18. WATN: Sixers Former 2nd Rounder Sam Clancy

    Jan 8, 2006, 2:58 PM EDT

    Henry Abbott over at TrueHoop talks with former Sixers 2nd round draft pick Sam Clancy who is currently playing ball in Spain.  Most of us probably don’t remember too much about Sam Clancy.  I remember him most for his role in knocking my Troy Bell-led Boston College squad out of the 2001 NCAA tournament.  It…

  19. Monty Willing to Open Check Book For Soriano

    Jan 8, 2006, 11:50 AM EDT

    PhillyBurbs’ Randy Miller: Sources indicate the Phillies might be willing to pay upwards of $100 million over six years for Soriano, and Gillick confirmed yesterday that team president David Montgomery will approve a big signing. It’s encouraging to see the brass are willing to shell out some cash for top notch players.  Miller’s article also…

  20. Ryan Howard MVP of Japan Tour

    Jan 8, 2006, 9:54 AM EDT

    I was going to leave the headline as Ryan Howard named MVP and leave off the "of Japan Tour" part.  That would have been mean to those of you who see the headlines first in RSS readers.  Alas, Ryan Howard has not been named MVP of the National League, yet at least.  He was however…

  21. The Sixers Are Who We Thought They Were

    Jan 8, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Everybody keeps saying that we don’t have any talent, but we’ve got talent. It’s not the most talented team in the world, but it’s good enough and we have to believe that anybody can beat anyone in this league on any give night. -Kyle Korver after last night’s 97-86 loss to Indiana. Hey, they’re good…

    Donovan McNabb has a new line from Reebok coming out known as Super 5, a nickname we’ve used for DonnieMac on many occasions. From Eagles.com: Reebok, the exclusive on-field and sideline apparel provider of the NFL, has partnered with Eagles All-Pro quarterback Donovan McNabb to create the brand’s first signature men’s apparel collection for an…

  23. Terrell Owens to Tampa Bay?

    Jan 7, 2006, 2:59 PM EDT

    Does it pay to read way too many news articles on the Internet?  ESPN has an article today in which Chris Mortensen said Tampa Bay may "seriously consider signing" Owens. I surfed over to Sportsbook.com which happens to have odds on which team T.O. will play his first game for next season.  Tampa Bay was…

  24. Trey Anastasio @ Nets Game

    Jan 7, 2006, 12:43 PM EDT

    Check out ESPN’s pictures from last night’s Nets game against the Magic in East Rutherford and you will see one of my favorite musicians had front row seats. Also of note in Phish news, they are releasing many of their shows in low quality video on their Live Phish website.  You can sample the goods…

  25. A Year Ago This Week

    Jan 7, 2006, 9:54 AM EDT

    It was a year ago this week that Andy Reid sent T.O. packing for good.  We had news of the fight between Owens and High Douglas and wrote our Owens obituary titled "We’ll Always Have Dallas:" Then it all came crashing down.  Enter Drew Rosenhaus.   ESPN interview after ESPN interview.  Owens attacking his former best…
