    Feb 22, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    And things were looking so up for the Sixers just 24 hours ago. John Hollinger of ESPN had been writing that the Sixers might have, against all appearances, actually been a top ten team in the league, while Kevin Pelton had been raving about their improved defense and newfound playoff chances.

    Feb 22, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    "I looked at our coaches and I said 'our guys, they're just not there tonight.' For whatever reason, we just weren't there. I don't know if it was a couple nights in between games in the same city. And just guys… that time of the year where you're out Christmas shopping and getting stuff taken…

    Our cheerleaders will not go unrepresented. At least they didn’t have too much time to think about the last one. Following their brutal loss at the hands of the Bears on Sunday, the Birds are right back in action tonight against the 5-7 Houston Texans. While I’m sure they’re all very thrilled to be there,…

    Feb 1, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    I caught up with our old friend Stephanie Stradley who was one of my colleagues and first bloggers at FanHouse. I answered a few questions about the Eagles for her over at the Houston Chronicle and she helped us get to know the Texans below. Plus, cheerleaders. We thought we’d let her introduce herself: Hi,…

  6. Wait, Where’s Your Clavicle Again?

    Jan 13, 2010, 3:33 PM EDT

    Fine technology blogger Christopher Wink sends along this video of the Science Cheerleader (you may remember the Q&A he did for us back in August on the subject). Well they’ve got an updated video and I really don’t know how you can find better content than “2-4-6-8! … sum is… 20?” [video below] Read more…

  9. Hank Baskett’s Other Ride

    Sep 9, 2009, 6:00 PM EDT

    When the Eagles were deciding whether or not to keep seven wide receivers on their roster this past week, it made me ponder whether or not we’d have Hank Baskett and his wife Kendra around much longer. I couldn’t decide if an Eagles receiver marrying a former Playmate with a consistently updated blog was a…

    Aug 29, 2009, 10:58 AM EDT

    Sure it’s gimmicky, but if you can’t get a laugh out of 70s nights at MLB ballparks, you may be trying too hard. I chuckled like a Phillies grandma when I saw the pictures of the guys PS’d with ridiculous 70s gear, especially a normally stoic guy like Chase Utley decked out in Saturday Night…

    Aug 28, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    This is a guest post from Christopher Wink, a co-founder of Technically Philly, an online news startup that covers technology and innovation in Philadelphia and is nearly as much fun as cheerleaders. I wonder if Darlene Cavalier was as interested in science back in 1992 when Armon Gilliam got her into both post-fight parties after…

  16. Get Your Very Own Kendra Stripper Pole

    Jun 3, 2009, 11:12 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett is getting married to a former Playboy Playmate. She has a blog post today titled, “SHAKIN MY ASS ON THE POLE.” This is not surprising. To each his own, Hank. I’m not a marry-a-stripper/playmate kind of guy, but I won’t object to others doing it. And you know what…

    May 28, 2009, 10:30 AM EDT

    Or, you know, check out what kind of make up their lovely cheerleaders are wearing. And here I thought I was impressed with the screen at Yankee Stadium. The Cowboys new 600-ton, $40 million dollar tech marvel is 180 feet long on each side and 72 feet tall. Video of it hanging above the field…

    Feb 10, 2009, 7:53 PM EDT

    Just my luck that as soon as I leave to spend a few days in the desert on a horse with no name, key members of the Flyers Rat Pack resumed their blog-worthy behavior. In reverse order of the title, the most fun story to hit my inbox this week is Joffrey Lupul’s brief appearance…

  21. Sixers Dancer Gets Into SI’s Swimsuit Issue

    Feb 10, 2009, 4:29 PM EDT

    What better way to end my lazy day of blogging than with a photo of Sixers cheerleader Melanie Fitzpatrick who apparently appears in the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated. (That’s a magazine made out of glossy paper that you purchase in a store on a shelf) You can see more pics of Melanie at…

  22. Video: Sixers Dancers Show Off Their Assets in Denim

    Feb 1, 2009, 10:10 AM EDT

    “Denim is ground zero for a great holiday season. Stocking stuffer anyone?” I think she meant the jeans. Also, I’m curious. Who do you think the target audience for such a video is? Some extremely uncool Philadelphia lady or some extremely uncool Philadelphia dude who reads a sports blog? And people, if you want to…

  23. Sixers Take On Iverson-Free Memphis Squad

    Jan 20, 2009, 5:29 PM EDT

    Just a few weeks ago, Philly fans had tonight's basketball contest with the Memphis Grizzlies highlighted as a game to look forward to due to a certain scorer coming back to face the team he made his bones with for all of those years. Well, the Allen Iverson in Memphis experiment was even more short-lived…

Kendra is a self purported fan of both the…
