    Feb 20, 2007, 9:37 AM EDT

    Jerry Crasnick of 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…

  2. 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,…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Louis Williams and Iguodala Just Miss The Sports Guy’s List

    Feb 19, 2007, 10:04 AM EDT

    ESPN’s Bill Simmons recently did his annual NBA trade value column in which he ranks the top 50 most valuable NBA players.  No Sixers made the top 50.  However, two guys did make the "almost list." Louis Williams: If you made a "top 10 things Sixers fans are most excited about right now" list, Billy…

  10. K-not Gonna Play Again This Season?

    Feb 19, 2007, 9:41 AM EDT

    After a vicious but accidental collision with the Rangers’ Brendan Shanahan on Saturday, Flyers RW Mike Knuble looks to be out for the rest of the season with fractured orbital and cheek bones, as reported by Tim Panaccio of the Inquirer today. Shanahan, a fan favorite around the league (despite playing for teams like Detroit…

  11. Eager Sent Packing, Flyers Lose Again

    Feb 19, 2007, 9:15 AM EDT

    Not long after getting a beatdown from the Pens’ Gary Roberts, Ben Eager has been traded to the Blackhawks for former Flyer Jim "Varsity Blues" Vandermeer. Vandermeer isn’t much of an impact player on defense and has been a healthy scratch several times this season in Chicago. Eager led the league in penalty minutes last…

  12. Phillies Opening Day Lottery Starts Today

    Feb 19, 2007, 6:02 AM EDT

    It’s still cold outside and Santa Claus has yet to squeeze his fat ass down your chimney this year but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about opening day of baseball season.  On their website today, tickets to the 2008 season opener against the Nationals as well as the coveted Red Sox…
