  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

    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…

  11. Gilbert Arenas Dunks Off a Trampoline at All Star Game

    Feb 19, 2007, 12:23 AM EDT

    With the NBA All Star Game finishing up as a blowout and Gilbert Arenas having an off night, he decided to put on a show.  During one of the commercial breaks, a group of flying Elvis guys game out to put on one of those dunking off trampoline shows.  During the whole performance, Gilbert and…

  12. Nate Robinson is Short

    Feb 19, 2007, 12:01 AM EDT

    I was awfully bitter last year when Nate Robinson beat out Andre Iguodala to win the dunk contest.  Time heals and I am now thoroughly impressed with the little guy. Dwight Howard, Nate Robinson, and Gerald Green stepped it up a bit this year to put on a great show for those of us in…
