  1. Phillies Practice Base Running

    Feb 23, 2007, 9:22 AM EDT

    Taking a look at the Inquirer’s newest spring training photo gallery shows us encouraging news that the Phillies are actually practicing base running.  Practice coupled with some new base coaches should hopefully improve upon some of the poor base running from seasons past.  Also, Kyle Drabek blows.

  2. Hockey is Brutal

    Feb 23, 2007, 9:09 AM EDT

    From the NYTimes: There was blood and bedlam on the ice in Buffalo. The goalies were throwing punches at each other, coaches were arguing and a player was heading to the locker room with a nasty gash on his forehead. Emotions were running high between the Sabres and Ottawa Senators, and that was long before…

  3. Sixers Fall To Lakers, Produce Old School Highlights

    Feb 22, 2007, 5:17 PM EDT

    The Sixers fell to the Kobe-led Lakers on Friday night.  No big surprise there. But in more winning related news, they honored the 25th aniversary of the last title team in Philadelphia, the 1982-83 Wold Champion Sixers. You can see a couple of the nice video tributes here with a little Sir Duke in the…

  4. You! No, YOU! Phillies & Mets

    Feb 22, 2007, 2:24 PM EDT

    I get a kick out of the Phillies and Mets talking a little bit of smack… in February.  Hey Jimmy, David Wright laughs at you. “I kind of laugh at it, to be honest with you,” Mets third baseman David Wright said. “There’s no reason they should be thinking about the New York Mets in…

  5. Tommy Gunn Didnt Hear No Bell

    Feb 22, 2007, 12:38 PM EDT

    Former WBO Heavyweight champ and (more importantly) costar of Rocky V, Tommy Morrison, will attempt a comeback tonight in West Virginia. Morrison, who for years has claimed to have been either set up or just really unlucky, lost his ability to fight professionally when he tested positive for HIV in 1996. In recent tests, Rocky’s…

  6. Sweet 16: KSK? Never Heard of It.

    Feb 22, 2007, 12:33 PM EDT

    Well we have advanced to the Sweet 16 of that blog tournament at Busted Coverage, taking down 3 seed 100% Injury Rate and our friends at 6 seed Bugs & Cranks (close one!). Now we’re rewarded with #2 Kissing Suzy Kolber, a Deadspinoff. Oh boy. We may need your help and a massive server error…

  7. Moyer More Than an Arm

    Feb 22, 2007, 9:24 AM EDT

    Sometimes you can’t put a price tag on the value of a savvy veteran.  Jamie Moyer is certainly that at age 76.  He is showing many of the younger guys, including stud Cole Hamels a thing or two. Drabek is not alone. Former starter Randy Wolf was seen many times talking pitching with Moyer during…

  8. Pat Gillick Loves Those Floral Prints

    Feb 22, 2007, 9:14 AM EDT

    In today’s Inquirer photo gallery of spring training we’re treated to 5 straight pictures of Karim Garcia and another of Pat Gillick wearing one of his patented floral print shirts.  The guy doesn’t look bad for his age.

  9. Andy’s Presser A Big Yawn

    Feb 21, 2007, 3:01 PM EDT

    Before I get to the injuries… Andy Reid had a press conference today in which it had been reported he would take questions regarding his huge cover story in Philly Mag.  Listeners and media members alike were rather let down when Andy briefly mentioned the article but refused to answer any specific questions regarding it.…

    Feb 21, 2007, 1:40 PM EDT

    Click on the picture for the celebrities pointed out.  Flickr will allow you to see a much larger version.  Also, maybe you can spot more.  Another celebrity shot, including Arnold’s bad socks.

  11. GCobb to Charge for Content

    Feb 21, 2007, 10:56 AM EDT

    Reader Marc writes in: Did you see GCobb is going to charge $10 a month membership fee?  It’s the lead story on GCobb.com.  I like Gary Cobb, but spending $120 a year to get so called exclusive information is a bit steep.  I can go to deadspin.com, the700level.com, and profootballtalk.com and get better insight an…

  12. Andy Reid Talks About His Sons in a Philly Mag Cover Story

    Feb 21, 2007, 10:52 AM EDT

    For the first time ever, in a Philadelphia Magazine cover story, Andy and Tammy Reid open up about their sons.  The question it leaves me with more than anything else is, why now?  What made Andy decide to go public with all of these things and why now? >>Andy & Tammy Reid Talk About Their…
