  1. Like A Horse With a Broken Leg

    Feb 10, 2007, 6:06 AM EDT

    Just shoot ‘em. It’s the same old story really.  You could cut and paste what has been written about this team all season long and it’d probably apply to yesterday’s loss.  I don’t have any in-depth analysis of the game.  To be honest, I’m kind of over this team.  They never came close to reaching…

  2. Eagles Are Awesome

    The beauty of a country wrapped up in a bird.

  3. Revenge Game Down at the Linc

    Feb 9, 2007, 1:15 PM EDT

    After giving up 12 sacks and getting flat out embarrassed last time they faced the G-Men, the Eagles are aiming to make Eli look as bad as ever today and cough up a loss. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? Eli’s looked like A.J. Feeley’s little brother lately. But the O-Line will need to stand up…

  4. Ryan Howard’s Mom Gives Him an Allowance

    Feb 9, 2007, 11:02 AM EDT

    This is classic Ryan Howard. Howard, profiled on HBO’s "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" in a segment to air Monday night, talks about how his financial adviser – his mother – gives him an allowance out of the money he earns. "She handles the funds. Like, I’ll get it, and then I won’t see it.…

  5. Schmidt on Burrell

    Feb 9, 2007, 8:58 AM EDT

    Mike Schmidt tends to keep to himself for the most part, but yesterday at a breakfast in Dayton, Ohio, Schmidt spoke up about one Phillie in particular.  Michael Jack attacks Pat Burrell and Adam Dunn for being so darn strikeout prone. "Now I know that if I had choked up on the bat with two…

  6. Sixers by the Numbers

    Feb 9, 2007, 8:12 AM EDT

    Forbes has gone through the books of every NBA team, evaluating their values, expenses, and how well they manage their money versus talent. I can’t do simple addition without a calculator, so this is all well over my head. They also do a lousy job of explaining their metrics for us mathtards. But the Sixers…

  7. Stop With the McNabb Hate

    Feb 9, 2007, 6:05 AM EDT

    If someone says, "I’m not rooting for this team while Donovan McNabb is their quarterback," can they still be an Eagles fan?  Plus, topless Wing Bowl people. [Fanhouse]

  8. ‘As Long As You Don’t Bring Your Gayness On Me, I’m Fine’

    Feb 8, 2007, 6:11 PM EDT

    That’s an actual quote from Sixer Shavlik Randolph in regards to former Penn State standout John Amaechi’s coming out as gay man who once played in the NBA.  Wow.  Leave it to a floorslapper. From ESPN’s Page 2: Truth: The most ignorant reaction to Amaechi’s coming out was from Philadelphia 76ers forward Shavlik Randolph, who…

  9. Dunk Contest Still Has Potential

    Feb 8, 2007, 3:14 PM EDT

    The days of Jordan vs. ‘Nique with Craig Sager giving the commentary are long gone.  The dunk contest surely has seen it’s low lights in recent years.  Last year, however, we saw Iggy put on an amazing display of acrobatics.  Because really, that’s what the dunk contest is, a competition in gymnastics. The dunk contest…

  10. A-10 February Madness on North Broad

    Feb 8, 2007, 1:40 PM EDT

    Note: The following post is by Matt P, Temple University, Class of 2002. Fran Dunphy’s first season at Temple has been rough at times, with the team currently in 10th place in the A-10, but last night, they did something they hadn’t done since the Liacouras Center was built: broke the century mark. The Owls…

  11. Adidas 5IVE All Star

    Feb 8, 2007, 10:23 AM EDT

    Now that Super Bowl ads go straight to YouTube it only seems right sneaker companies upload their own videos to the site before most people have seen them on television. Adidas has an interesting thing going, an ad of sorts, where they sent 20 NBA ballers to a rooftop in Vegas to play some ball. …
