  3. Bloggers Were Way Over Confident Before This Season

    Mar 2, 2007, 6:50 AM EDT

    You know what’s funny?  What bloggers predicted the Eagles would do this season.  Props to Mr. Daulerio and Mr. Bunch for being the closest.  Go read for a good laugh.  (My pick was in here. Also laughable.)

  4. New Flyers Take Off

    Mar 1, 2007, 9:55 PM EDT

    The Flyers won a tough game against the Boston Bruins Thursday night, with Marty Biron earning his first win as the team’s starting goalie. In a fitting end to a gritty contest, Scottie Upshall scored his third goal in his seven games as a Flyer after a huge save by Biron with 9 seconds left…

  5. Porter: The Eagles Answer at LB?

    Complete speculation in the title, but Joey Porter is now available.

  6. Saint Joe’s ‘Adopts’ BC Football

    Mar 1, 2007, 3:05 PM EDT

    I don’t really know what to make of this; it’s a tad bizarre, a tad pathetic, and a tad intriguing.  St. Joe’s University is "adopting" the football program of Boston College (my alma mater).  Best case scenario it gets BC a game at the Linc sometime in the future? St. Joseph’s University in Pennsylvania has…

  7. To Brett Myers: PUT THAT COFFEE DOWN.

    Mar 1, 2007, 2:05 PM EDT

    You are a starter, and we all know coffee is for closers only. Hopefully this is just spring training filler and has no real possibility of coming true, but Todd Zolecki today reports that a possible solution to the Phillies current logjam of starting pitchers would be to have Brett Myers serve as a closer.…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
