  1. Is Smerconish Turning Into a Blogger

    Mar 1, 2007, 1:05 PM EDT

    Talk radio personality and political pundit turned Daily News columnist Michael Smerconish turns in a piece about.. well, it’s kind of about his own experience at an Eagles game 40+ years ago, but then he cites — without linkage of course — ESPN’s Sal Pal and Comcast’s Ray Diddy about McNabb/Garcia garbage. This reads exactly…

  2. Breaking: Kyle Korver Traded to Utah

    Mar 1, 2007, 12:15 PM EDT

    The first trade in the Ed Stefanski era has sent Kyle Korver to Utah in exchange for guard Gordan Giricek (expiring contract) and a protected first-round pick. A decent player and a community guy, Korver will be missed in Philly, but Stefanski’s charge is to rebuild the Sixers, and adding first-rounders is the best place…

  3. Matine Hockey Games: Perfect for Ruining Saturday Productivity

    Mar 1, 2007, 11:39 AM EDT

    There’s a slight chance we had too many Jäger and car bombs last night. I blame Daulerio for the idea and Meech for the execution. But, anticipating this might happen, our friends up at the league office scheduled the perfect cure for a hang over: some matinée hockey. I’ve always been a fan of the…

  4. Was Show and Tell Around in 1924?

    Mar 1, 2007, 10:41 AM EDT

    An interesting NYTimes piece takes a look at a traveling baseball memorabilia show of a different sort and the man behind it all. It is an irreverent sort of reverence. A life-size cardboard cutout of Sparky Anderson stands next to Cannon’s bed. In his living room, there is a large display case with a triptych…

  5. First Glimpse of the 2007 Phillies

    Mar 1, 2007, 9:00 AM EDT

    Things started out a bit rocky for Kyle Drabek.  FSU took him deep after only 3 pitches.  From the Trentonion. Drabek, the Phillies’ top draft pick last season, is a long way from pitching in the majors. It took all of three pitches to see that, since that delivery was smoked deep into the bullpen…

  6. Are Lito’s Days as an Eagle Numbered?

    Feb 28, 2007, 2:44 PM EDT

    Lito Sheppard has had a decent year, perhaps a bit low for his own standards in terms of interceptions.  Overall I thought Lito played fine in ’07.  But hidden in a piece about the Eagles promising defense next year are hints of a possible break up between Lito and the Birds. Defensive czar Jim Johnson…

    Are you a male cheerleader? Do want to rally your supporters as you prepare to get smacked by a Hall of Fame coach on the brink of an astonishing milestone? Easy. Go out on that comedy limb, and point out that not only is he old, he’s going to die sometime! "Joe Paterno’s on his…

  8. Jimmy Rollins: Hip Hop Mogul

    Feb 28, 2007, 11:22 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins has his own entertainment company known as Rollins Entertainment and a music company known as Bay Slugga’s Inc.  How the two relate exactly is a bit unclear to me.  Details from Rollins’ move into entertainment falls in line with the aspiring mogul’s goal of capitalizing on any given opportunity for success. "I…

  9. Mo Cheeks Can Still Shoot The Rock

    Feb 28, 2007, 6:22 AM EDT

    Coming off a nice win over the Heat on Wednesday, the Sixers have embarked on a West Coast trip that starts tonight in Sacramento.  They had a light practice on Thursday before their flight out west.  After the session, Mo Cheeks owned Sammy D., ThadYo, and Louis Amundson in shooting contests. The team wrapped up…

  10. There Will Be Baseball Played Today

    Feb 28, 2007, 12:33 AM EDT

    Granted, it will be more of the Kyle Drabek variety than the Cole Hamels variety, but the Phillies will play a "game" of baseball today in Clearwater against Florida State University. Chase Utley is excited to get things going and thinks the fact that FSU is going to use wood bats gives the Phils an…

  11. Holmgren Busy: Flyers Acquire Another Backup Goalie, Dump Calder

    Feb 27, 2007, 3:07 PM EDT

    In a somewhat surprising move, the Flyers closed the trading season today by acquiring goalie Martin Biron from the Sabres for a second-round pick. You may remember Marty from such films as last week’s epic "Getting My Ass Kicked by Ray Emery." Biron is a solid goaltender and had a lot of success with Buffalo…

  12. Dwayne Says ‘No!’ Lou Says ‘Yes!’

    Feb 27, 2007, 3:05 PM EDT

    The Sixers beat the stumbling Heat last night at the Wachovia Center.  Below is a video of Louis Williams blowing by Dwayne Wade only to completely facialize Udonis Haslem.  Sick. [via]
