    Lost in the holiday shuffle this week was a little gem from Sheldon Brown, in which he indicated that the atmosphere around the Eagles was too tight before they were eliminated from the playoffs, and that it stemmed from the coaching staff and trickled down.

    Friday night I dined in the South Philly BYO restaurant Francoluigi’s High Note Cafe where the wait staff also serenede you while you enjoy your meal.  If I had gone one night earlier, I could have been sitting next to the Soprano’s John Sacrimoni. [Philly Gossip, HBO]

    Along with Freddy Garcia, Adam Eaton was one of the Phillies off-season moves to help improve the Phillies starting rotation this season.  Phillies.com has a list of 15 things about Eaton.  The fact that he lives in a cabin in the mountains means he must be a good pitcher, right? 2.

    I preemptively came out and said the Phillies "Goosebumps" campaign was going to stink before I ever saw the spots, based solely on their past track record with slogans such as "Red Means Go" and commercials of players frolicking in the grass, etc.  After viewing the spots on Phillies.com, my opinion hasn’t changed much with…

    Feb 26, 2007, 10:26 AM EDT

    I’ve ragged on Bill Conlin in the past for his loquacious style of verbal masturbation — which is often the case — but this morning he puts out a nice little piece in which he shares a Tim McCarver story I got a kick out of and had never heard in the past.  That’s what…

    Feb 26, 2007, 10:08 AM EDT

    Soccer used to be a sport that I absolutely loathed.  It has, however, grown on me a bit in recent years.  With the World Cup in ’06 as well as being in Naples in May and watching how the people there reacted to their team’s game, I have become quasi converted into a footie fan. …

    Originally uploaded by peggy.
