  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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]

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Reebok Launches McNabb’s Super 5

    Jan 7, 2006, 3:17 PM EDT

    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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Howard Never Stops

    Jan 7, 2006, 8:54 AM EDT

    Bill Conlin gives a nice little run down of the beastly nature of Ryan Howard’s trip to Japan.  In Game 2, after taking his mother and sister on a daytime tour of various Tokyo must-sees, Ryan toured the bases. He led off the second with one of those inside-out lasers to left-center. Kentaro Nishimura, a…

  17. You Can’t Change Allen Iverson

    Jan 6, 2006, 7:52 PM EDT

    Today’s NYTimes looks at how Allen Iverson, despite cleaning up his outward appearance, is still as outspoken as ever.  The article takes a look at David Stern’s attempt at creating a "new golden era" of NBA hoops. But Iverson said that Stern’s new rules, most notably the dress code, had not changed him. “Everybody knows…

  18. Trade Rumors: Tejada for Abreu

    Jan 6, 2006, 1:29 PM EDT

    Friday trade rumors are out there which involve Bobby Abreu going to the Orioles for Miguel Tejada who would likely move to third.  The O’s are looking for the Fightins’ to throw in some pitching but the Phillies don’t have a whole lot of quality to offer.  The most humors part of the Fox article,…

  19. What is Wrong With the Sixers?

    Jan 6, 2006, 9:48 AM EDT

    They aren’t losing like we expect them to?  I was going to write something today about the Sixers hot 3-0 start, but frankly, I am at a loss for words.  They are the only undefeated team in the East.  I may have to renege on my position on Kyle Korver.  I don’t like reneging. What’s…

  20. Terrell Owens Sleepy Time

    Jan 6, 2006, 9:01 AM EDT

    The Eagles had a much needed bye this week and I watched as little football as possible to take a step back from the sorry season to this point.  What I did see of the Dallas/Washington game was quite enjoyable.  Terrell Owens caught a TD pass and proceeded to take a nap with the ball…

  21. Childress to Captain Minnesota’s Ship

    Jan 6, 2006, 12:43 AM EDT

    After news earlier in the week that Tom Heckert had been promoted to the title of GM, news broke Thursday night that Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress is set to replace the inept Mike Tice in Minnesota.  The consensus around the league and in Philly was that Childress was long overdue a head coaching position…

  22. Paterno Breaks Bone, Called ‘Old Fart’

    Jan 5, 2006, 9:08 PM EDT

    JoePa had a rough day on Saturday.  His team stinks and got beat up on by Wisconsin 13-3.  He gets tackled and breaks a bone on the sideline.  Then he gets called an "old fart" by an ESPN analyst.  It was more stupid than anything.  Craig James was commenting about how Wisconsin’s coach "gave it…

  23. Sunday Miller Notes on Phillies

    Jan 5, 2006, 5:00 PM EDT

    PhillyBurbs.com’s Randy Miller has become a Phillies fan favorite with his solid insight in his articles.  Today he has 10 hot stove questions to ponder.  Some points I found interesting. A source says Soriano doesn’t care where he plays and has given Bentz total control over negotiations. Look for Bentz, who is seeking a seven-year,…

  24. Iverson Wants Olympic Gold

    Jan 5, 2006, 2:32 PM EDT

    Love him or hate him, you have to respect A.I.’s heart.  In an age where big shots like Kobe and Shaq decide they’d rather take a vacation than bring home a gold for the U.S., A.I. seeks to bring gold back to Philly. ESPN:    "He wants to win a gold medal," said Colangelo, the…

  25. I Fell Asleep

    Jan 5, 2006, 8:52 AM EDT

    I’m sad to admit it, but at some point in the 4th quarter I was gone.  I’m sad I missed what ESPN said, "May have been the greatest championship game performance ever."  Vince Young is nasty.
