    Feb 23, 2007, 6:41 PM EDT

    From FanHouse: The New Orleans Saints needed a win to keep control of their playoff chances but it was the team from Philadelphia, with their offseason vacation plans already made, that looked like a playoff team today. The Eagles beat the Saints by a final of 38-23 and put any hope of a New Orleans…

  2. Billy Bob, Howard, Pujols, Porter, and Breasts

    Feb 23, 2007, 1:05 PM EDT

    A article in today’s Daily News talks to Billy Bob Thornton, once a major league pitching prospect, about Ryan Howard and Albert Pujols.  Thornton thinks he is to the Cardinals as Jack Nicholson is to the Lakers.  Billy Bob admits that he thought Howard deserved the MVP honor last season with Pujols missing so many…

    What was the point of sending Alan Henderson to the Jazz you ask?  TrueHoop explains: Jonathan Givony explains that Sixers/Jazz trade: Barring some sort of catastrophe that sees the Jazz lose the rest of their games and the Knicks win the rest of theirs…Utah will get New York’s 2007 2nd rounder  this year or next…

  4. My Photos Cause a Stir

    Feb 23, 2007, 12:06 PM EDT

    So the fun little photo I took of the crowd at Sunday’s All Star game in Vegas has drawn a bit of attention.  It started over at Deadspin and people have been leaving notes on the picture like crazy.  I’ve deleted some and left some up for comedic purposes.  The D.C. Sports Bog confirms that…

  5. All We Want for Christmas Is Some Downfield Action

    Feb 23, 2007, 11:44 AM EDT

    One of the most frustrating parts of a season that’s been defined by frustration has been the lack of downfield plays by the Eagles. In years past, we’ve seen Donovan throw deep balls and rack up great offensive yards, but this season, it’s been nearly all dink-and-dunk, short routes. Even the players don’t seem to…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

    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…

  12. 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…
