  1. Skateboard Mega Ramp

    Jan 1, 2006, 11:58 AM EDT

    From the NYTimes: Approximately 360 feet long, the ramp is 75 feet high at its apex. That is where riders begin their run, speeding down a 180-foot-long roll-in to a ramp that launches them across a 70-foot gap with trapeze netting below. Landing on a 27-foot sloped section, they then boost up to 50 feet…

  2. The Cheesesteak of Suffering

    Jan 1, 2006, 10:09 AM EDT

    I don’t have a Mac, but if I did, this widget sounds tasty.  To tell you the truth, I don’t even know what a widget is?  It kind of makes me think back to Mr. Ostick’s AP econ, guns & butter, Mick Jagger, etc.  Widget?  I don’t know.  But Apple’s got a cheesesteak of death…

  3. The Beginning of the End

    Jan 1, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Photo credit: your pal Matt Tonight marks the start of the Sixers season.  For all intents and purposes this year will be a mediocre campaign at best.  The Sixers haven’t changed a whole lot from the team they put out on the floor last year and with A.I. and CWebb inching closer to the twilight…

  4. Trading Burrell Will Not Be Easy

    Dec 31, 2005, 12:47 PM EDT

    Even is getting real about the fact that the Phillies need to trade Burrell: That doesn’t mean Gillick isn’t going to try. He’s going to aggressively shop Burrell and see what comes of it. I think his answer was simply reminding fans and potential buyers that Burrell can be productive (his .222 average with…

  5. The Orange and the Black (Wigs)

    Dec 31, 2005, 9:16 AM EDT

    Yahoo Photo A solid lead in today’s Courier Post: "It took some time, but the Flyers finally found an opponent as  inept as themselves."  There you go Flyers!  Basically, I’m only talking about the Flyers because they gave the fans orange wigs last night. Flyers fans unofficially set a Guinness world record by getting 9,315…

With our combined strength, you will no longer puke, we can end this destructive drought, and bring a parade to Philadelphia. Who has a caption?

  7. New Balls v. Old Balls

    Dec 30, 2005, 3:09 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, author of the highly entertaining Blog Maverick, had the University of Texas at Arlington Physics department conduct a study on the new balls the NBA will be using this year compared to the balls previously used.  Click here to read more about balls.  It’s pretty interesting stuff: I asked the…

  8. Who Feels Like This Guy Looks?

    Dec 30, 2005, 10:02 AM EDT

    Andy Reid’s press conference yesterday was hilarious, the bad part is, it’s wasn’t supposed to be. [] In McNabb’s press conference: "one of the worst games I’ve ever been a part of…" Donovan looked and sounded like he just spent the past 20 minutes crying. [] Eagles may sign CB Will Peterson, maybe. [CentreDaily] That…

  12. Sixers Pump Gas

    Dec 27, 2005, 9:30 AM EDT

    The Sixers didn’t practice on Thursday, instead they hung out at gas stations where some of the players practiced their future profession: gas station attendant.  Anyone have pictures of Kyle Korver pumping gas yesterday?  This was all part of "Sixers Week."  Today, you can see Sixers mascot Hip Hop at City Hall for a pep…

  13. The 700 Level Mailbag

    Dec 26, 2005, 3:29 PM EDT

    A reader suggested we take on your questions via email, much like the original sports blogger, Mr. Simmons does.  So we’re going to give it a try here.  Wondering what kind of drugs Tom McGinnis is on while calling Sixers games? Run into A.I. at the Taj in A.C?  Wondering if anyone else saw that…

    A new weekly feature every Wednesday (or so) here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Curt Schilling. Why Curt Schilling?  Well, we saw him at the King of Prussia mall once about 10-15 years ago and were pretty fond of him as a Phillie.  Once he become a Red Sock, (Is…

  15. Ryan Howard & Derek Jeter Win Hank Aaron Award

    Ryan Howard was recognized yesterday in St. Louis for being the best offensive player in the National League this season and was awarded the Hank Aaron Award. In the video linked below, Ryan thanks Century 21, those who voted, and Hank Aaron.  He ended with noting, "this season was a blast, hopefully many more to…

    Dec 25, 2005, 10:23 AM EDT

    The NFL has announced that starting in 2007, two regular season games will be played in either Mexico, Canada, or Europe. The plan, announced last month, was approved by owners in New Orleans yesterday at the recommendation of new commissioner Roger Goodell. "We are talking about a limited number of games that we think will…

  21. Video Reminder: It is Indeed Possible

    Dec 24, 2005, 10:23 AM EDT

    A reader suggested this video as a tribute of sorts to Clarkey and his old team.  It’s a shame this hasn’t happened in… oh… the last 30 years or so.

    Dec 23, 2005, 12:05 PM EDT

    The Eagles are doing everything they can to try and convince us they are just an average team.  I don’t want to believe it.  I think they are capable of being a good to great team.  At this point, they certainly are just an average team.  You could point to many things from yesterday’s loss:…

  24. Flyers Clean House

    Dec 23, 2005, 9:45 AM EDT

    Bob Clarke resigned and Ken Hitchcock was fired.  I wouldn’t say I’m shocked that the Flyers, who are off to their worst start in over 15 years, cleaned house this weekend.  Out with the old, in with the new.  That’s how sports goes when losing spreads rampant.  (Except for maybe the Phillies, of course) While…
