  1. It’s Lonely at a Sixers Game

    Feb 13, 2007, 8:45 AM EDT

    These numbers from True Hoop shouldn’t surprise you. The numbers from Philadelphia are depressing. The Sixers rank at the bottom of the league in attendance – 14,499 per game, down from 16,518 last season, the biggest drop-off in the league. With an average of 69% capacity, they’re the only team averaging less than 75%. The…

    Feb 12, 2007, 3:37 PM EDT

    The Palestra documentary has all of the names you think of when it comes to college hoops in Philadlephia: John Chaney, Sonny Hill, Phil Martelli, Dr. Jack Ramsey, Fran Dunphy, Rollie Massamino, and the list goes on.  The documentary has been in the works for quite some time now, but I just recently learned of…

  5. Eagles Offense is Not Efficient

    Feb 12, 2007, 2:22 PM EDT

    Fun fact of the day: The least efficient offenses are the Eagles and Broncos. Philadelphia’s yards from scrimmage translates into 23.5 points per game, yet they score just 20.8 (putting them 35 total points to the minus side). Denver should be scoring 23.8 points per game, not 21.7 (27 total points short). The only solution…

    Foodball Food for Fans ~ Week 13, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ I joke about being disappointed when the football food for the week doesn’t include some juicy meat, but in reality I’d rather eat anything Mark cooks up over my crappy take out.  That being said, this week fits the meaty criteria nicely. From…

    Feb 12, 2007, 11:22 AM EDT

    Nothing to brighten your Monday morning like a Freddie Mitchell sighting.  Freddie got a try out with the Toronto Argonauts this past weekend. Former NFL first-round draft pick Freddie Mitchell worked out with the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday. … "I wear my heart on my sleeve," Mitchell said Sunday. "But the thing about it is…

  10. WATN: Jerry Stackhouse Remembers Philly Fans (All Good, Of Course)

    Feb 12, 2007, 8:50 AM EDT

    Jerry Stackhouse may be remembered more for his appearance in a G. Love song than anything he ever did on the court in Philadelphia.  Hadn’t thought of Stackhouse lately?  Turns out he’s on the Mavericks who have a real nice team.  Stack comes off the bench for 25 or so minutes a game and puts…

  11. Pitchers & Catchers Just Days Away

    Feb 12, 2007, 8:08 AM EDT

    This is the week.  All of our Eagles complaints, all of our disgust with the Flyers, all of our hope in lottery balls, they will all be forgotten this week.  Pitchers and catchers. Bob Ford did a great job in Sunday’s Inquirer setting the mood for the glorious day in February when pitchers and catchers…
