  1. The Seats

    Feb 20, 2007, 1:25 PM EDT

    I think it’s safe to say I attend a good number of events.  I’ve had my fair share of nose bleed tickets — my Villanova 5 pack this year is in the last row of the Wachovia Center — and I’ve gotten lucky a couple of times and sat at the 50 yard line in…

  2. Scottie Upside

    Feb 20, 2007, 12:08 PM EDT

    Since joining the Flyers in the Peter Forsberg trade, Scottie Upshall has put together some impressive shifts, scoring 2 goals and 1 assist in 2 games. The #6 overall pick in 2002, Upshall was essentially a disappointment in Nashville, enduring some injury problems while losing PT on a team that overachieved while he was still…

    Feb 20, 2007, 11:44 AM EDT

    Football Food For Fans ~ Week 14, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ You know, this Eagles season has had it’s ups and downs.  With no chances of a post season appearance, it will all be over in a few short weeks.  Perhaps the most disappointing result of the shortened season is no more football food…

  4. Quotable: Bill Lyons On Sports

    Feb 20, 2007, 10:00 AM EDT

    From Bill Lyons’ acceptance speech into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame: For all that soils our sports today – the arrogance and avarice of coddled mercenaries, the Machiavellian agents, the loutish, drunken behavior in the stands – for all that, sports remains the place where we are privileged to witness pride and passion, valor…

  5. Geoff Jenkinstown, PA

    Feb 20, 2007, 9:37 AM EDT

    Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com is reporting that the Phils and Geoff Jenkins have reached a preliminary deal to bring the outfielder to Philly. The deal is said to be for 2 years, paying Jenkins $13 million. A third year may be added if he reaches certain plate-appearance milestones. Jenkins, with nice numbers against righties, was…

  6. What is Missing From This Photo?

    Feb 20, 2007, 9:15 AM EDT

    Here is a shot of the West’s practice at the Mandalay Bay Jam Session.  The West squad lacked the goofiness of a Shaq/LeBron/Dwight dance off or Agent Zero doing his thing.  For the most part, it was a practice, nothing more. But if you take a closer look at this photo of the Western team,…

  7. Finishing Strong: Is It Really Important?

    Feb 20, 2007, 6:01 AM EDT

    Bob Brookover has a piece today in the Inquirer that says, at this point, finishing strong is the number one goal for the Eagles.  It got me to wondering if that really is the case?  Does winning two games to end your lackluster season really carry over into the following year?  Is it really something…

  8. Pat Burrell’s Proposal in Pictures

    Feb 19, 2007, 9:38 PM EDT

    The Internets can produce amazing things — both amazingly good and amazingly bad.  These pictures of Pat Burrell proposing to his new fiancee don’t really fit into either of those, but they are quite interesting for a number of reasons.  Perhaps I’m unqualified to comment on the topic of a marriage proposal, because the closest…

  9. Terrell Owens Hates Jessica Simpson

    Feb 19, 2007, 2:23 PM EDT

    This blog post from the Dallas Morning News brings joy to our hearts this holiday season.  Terrell Owens has declared that Jessica Simpson and her pink jersey is distracting Mr. Romo. "Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room or in Texas Stadium," T.O. said. "I think with everything that…

  10. Leaving Las Vegas

    Feb 19, 2007, 1:46 PM EDT

    The scene at McCarren today is unlike any I’ve ever seen at an airport.  I’m just happy I’m on US Airways and not Southwest.  The line for Southwest spanned for blocks and blocks outside of the airport.  If this kind of crowd was in Philly, they’d be lined up all the way to Prospect Park.…

  11. Takeo’s Season Is Over.

    Feb 19, 2007, 12:10 PM EDT

    The torn rotator cuff he played through on Sunday will prevent Takeo Spikes from playing again this season. Andy Reid announced today that TKO has been placed on the IR. Dr. James Andrews will surgically repair the injury on Friday. Still intact is Spikes’ streak of consecutive seasons playing for a team that doesn’t make…

  12. An Interesting View of Christina

    Feb 19, 2007, 12:01 PM EDT

    Christina Aguilera impressed me.  Tony Braxton, not so much. Here is a quick video I shot of the view I had of the show.  I was literally four seats away from the stage.  A picture after the jump.
