  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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,…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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,…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Iverson Shuts Down Nelson’s Magic

    Jan 4, 2006, 4:04 PM EDT

    Not sure if Sixers fans should be excited that they found a way to beat the Magic in Orlando last night, or discouraged that they played horribly for most of the game.  At this point, I guess we should be excited that they are 2-0.  A.I. hit the game winner with about 2 seconds left.…

  13. The Man

    Jan 4, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    Wow.  Bow down to JoePa.  You have to love the guy.  My brother imed me sometime around 1:00 am, "I wish I never started watching this." The one thing we can take away from this game, as #48 in maroon and gold proved to us in the past, college kickers do in fact suck. You…

  14. Clinton Portis’ Mom Takes No Shit

    Jan 3, 2006, 8:17 PM EDT

    Found this over at Deadspin: What kind of woman would raise a man who would wear a costume like this? What kind of woman could raise such a spawn? The type that will bust you in the mouth, of course. According to The Washington Post, during Sunday’s Redskins win over the Eagles in Philadelphia, some…

  15. Niiiiiiiiiiice

    Jan 3, 2006, 12:03 PM EDT

    Eagles fans should be happy that there is no game for the Birds this weekend.  It will prevent a Sunday evening full of heartburn and allow you to watch something else.  You could watch the Sixers in Orlando tonight, Boston College at Wake on Saturday on ESPN2, or the Flyers on Saturday against Washington.  On…

  16. SI Sports Photo’s of 2005

    Jan 3, 2006, 11:05 AM EDT

    SI Photo’s of 2005: Eagles’ lineman Hank Fraley (63) gets face-masked by Atlanta Falcons’ safety Cory Hall during the second quarter of the NFC Championship game at Lincoln Financial Field. After three consecutive NFC title game losses, the Eagles finally advanced, but lost in Super Bowl XXXIX to the Patriots. Also of note: Crowd Pleasers:…

  17. Mark Cuban has it Made

    Jan 3, 2006, 10:44 AM EDT

    In what is a seeminly typical day for Cuban, he ponders why he didn’t purchase the Penguins, he meets LeBron & Malkin, and his Mavericks beat the Cavs. [Blog Maverick]

  18. McNabb Joins Iverson in Slinging Vitamin Water

    Jan 3, 2006, 9:12 AM EDT

    First it was Allen Iverson on billboards with the slickly designed bottles, now Donovan McNabb has gotten in on the Glaceau Vitamin Water kick.  I’d have to guess that Donovan’s recent signs of a weak constitution wouldn’t help his image as a drinker of vitamin water.  It turns out McNabb is a highly desired player…

  19. Eagles Lose 3 Straight, Give Mike Patterson a Raise

    Fanhouse: Eagles Lose 3 Straight, Give Mike Patterson a Raise

  20. Apparently There is Tying in Baseball

    Jan 2, 2006, 10:46 AM EDT

    It’s November and Ryan Howard is still hitting bombs.  The MLB team tied the Yomuiri Giants 7-7 in Tokyo yesterday (or is it today?). Ryan Howard and Jones hit back-to-back solo homers in the top of the sixth inning to pull the MLB stars to within two runs after the Giants had jumped out to…

  21. Roy Jones Jr. to Fight in Philly

    Jan 2, 2006, 9:25 AM EDT

    Who was the greatest?  Who was the best of all time?  If two athletes from different eras could actually compete against each other, who would come out on top?  Ah shit, wrong story. Anyway, Roy Jones Jr. is going to fight in Philly.  Manny Siaca, of Puerto Rico, will be his opponent.  In his press…

  22. Readers Write: Eagles Done?

    Jan 2, 2006, 8:40 AM EDT

    Got something to say or something you want answered? Send your comments, questions, YouTube links, and observations to our email.  We’ll post in in our new mailbag feature.Q: The Eagles are currently enjoying the least deserved week-long break in the history of sports, having wrapped up the first half of their season at 4-4.

  23. Eagles to pick at 14

    Jan 2, 2006, 5:58 AM EDT

    With the Eagles season finally being put out of misery, we can start to look ahead to getting healthy and retooling.  Yahoo lists the likely draft order: Unofficially here is how the top twenty sits for next April’s draft: 1 Houston 2-14 0 2 New Orleans 3-13 3 Tennessee 4-12 4 N.Y. Jets 4 12…

  24. Sixers Win!

    Jan 1, 2006, 11:02 PM EDT

    Granted they played the Hawks, but a 1-0 start is always good.  For tonight, it looks like all that defensive practice paid off a little.  Don’t get too excited, Atlanta has Tyronne Lue playing for them.  Allen Iverson paced the Sixers with 32. Check out this highlight video from NBA TV.  The announcer calls Sammy…

  25. Pat Burrell & Mike Lieberthal 2006 Topps

    Jan 1, 2006, 3:45 PM EDT

    A new weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Pat Burrell and Mike Lieberthal. Pat "the bat" and one half of the black hole – all this card is missing is David Bell knocking a grounder off his shin and you’d have the collective stomach ache of…
