  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Curt Schilling 1991 Leaf

    Dec 26, 2005, 10:23 AM EDT

    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…

  4. Ryan Howard & Derek Jeter Win Hank Aaron Award

    Dec 25, 2005, 10:44 PM EDT

    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…

  5. Are You An ‘Alcoholic Rageaholic’?

    Dec 25, 2005, 3:15 PM EDT

    Philly was apparently voted third worst sports town in America.  I laughed.  >>Read more at Swing and Miss.

  6. Eagles Road Trip to Europe?

    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…

  9. Beck @ Tower Theatre

    Dec 24, 2005, 12:36 PM EDT

    My flickr set of the Beck show at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby/Philadelphia, 10/23/06 | Someone else’s flickr set and Review | Phawker flickr set | Inquirer Review I took one video because really who wants to spend a whole show playing with their camera.

  10. 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.

  11. More on the Nutty Parent

    Dec 24, 2005, 8:50 AM EDT

    Today’s Daily News and Inquirer both have more in depth stories on the parent who pulled a 357 magnum at a peewee football game. >>A dad and the ref are charged [Inquirer]>>Who are the 5 year-olds? [Daily News]>>Parent threatens peewee coach with 357 magnum [The 700 Level]

  12. He Actually Made a 62 Yard Kick

    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:…

  13. 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…

  14. Parent Threatens Peewee Coach with Loaded 357 Magnum

    Dec 22, 2005, 11:05 PM EDT

    The parent of a 6 year old peewee football player pulled out a loaded magnum and threatened a coach with it.  The game was between the Outlaws and the Raiders. Acording to 6ABC’s website: During the game that started at 10am Sunday morning at Burholme Park, a father of a player started arguing with the…

  15. Donovan McNabb Pukes

    Dec 22, 2005, 9:19 PM EDT

    Video of Donovan McNabb puking at the line of scrimage in the horrible loss today to the Tampa Bay Bucs.  Insert Chunky soup jokes here.

  16. We Are! Drunk Fools!

    Dec 20, 2005, 6:18 PM EDT

    For the record: I never attended PSU.  This video was almost entertaining until the middle aged guy, who I’m assuming was telling all the college kids about his days as a CYO All Star, gets in the ring.  (via Fanhouse)

  17. We Talkin Bout Practice

    Dec 20, 2005, 10:41 AM EDT

    Not the game… Practice.  (longer version here) With the Sixers season starting up in just about 10 days coupled with the lack of intersting sports news today, I thought we could all use a little practice. >>Full transcript of the press conference [SI.com] Ad:

  18. WATN: Endy Chavez & Scott Rolen

    Dec 20, 2005, 12:45 AM EDT

    Yahoo Photos A couple of ex-Phillies rubbed shoulders last night.  While Endy Chavez’s simply amazing catch prevented a Scott Rolen home run, Rolen’s Cardinals took the series and earned the trip to play Detroit in the World Series.  It was a fun game to watch.  I’m glad I’m not a Mets fan today. I’m looking…

  19. That’s The Closest Bill Giles Will Get to That Trophy

    Dec 20, 2005, 12:05 AM EDT

    Bill Giles was the "honorary National League Commissioner" or something to that affect last night in New York.  He presented the Cardinals with the Warren C. Giles trophy which is named after Bill’s father.  The trophy is awarded to the National League Championship Series winner. >>Warren Giles [Wikipedia]>>Giles and Vet go hand and hand [Phillies.com]

  20. Game 7: Delirium or Denouement

    Dec 19, 2005, 5:02 PM EDT

    The following is an email I just received from my buddy Chris.  He’s a Mets fan.  I’m posting it here, with his permission, because I thought some of you would enjoy it.  (I’m pulling for the Mets) October 16th, 2003 October 20th, 2004   Those two dates represent that last two times that a game…

  21. Is there a Ralph’s Around Here?

    Dec 19, 2005, 11:59 AM EDT

    I’d settle for a coffee can: Starting next season, fans of the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will be able to have a casket or cremation urn emblazoned with their team colors and insignia.

  22. Cheesesteak Wars

    Dec 19, 2005, 9:26 AM EDT

    The lede in this story is awesome: PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The battle for cheesesteak supremacy — usually fought with beef, onions and cheese — has moved out of the kitchen and into the courthouse. Pat’s King of Steaks, a South Philadelphia institution since the 1930s, is suing Rick’s Steaks for trademark infringement. Rick’s Steaks took…

  23. Joe Morgan 1984 Topps

    Dec 18, 2005, 12:11 PM EDT

    A new weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Joe Morgan. Perhaps I’m pointing out my own ignorance on this one, but I didn’t know Joe Morgan played for the Phillies.  Alas, on my recent trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum I picked…

  24. Random Thought of the Day

    Dec 18, 2005, 9:27 AM EDT

    Scoring 9 goals in a hockey game is a lot.  The Flyers must be pretty shitty this year.  I like that Hitchcock guy though.  He makes for a good interview, unlike Andy Reid.  You know what they say, "If you’re going to let a team score 9 goals on you, at least give a good…

  25. The End of PRISM

    Dec 18, 2005, 12:14 AM EDT

    "Everybody in Philadelphia loves this kid. They love the way he plays the game.  They love the way he handles himself.  There’s nothing to not like about Scott Rolen.  He’s going to be something special around here for a long, long time." I’m pretty sure Scott Rolen is playing in the post season right now…
