  1. 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…

  2. 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. …

  3. Terrell Owens on Eskin

    Feb 8, 2007, 8:41 AM EDT

    On a slow news day, except for Andy’s other son Garrett looking at a few misdemeanors, WIP provides us with a podcast of Howard Eskin’s call with Terrell Owens yesterday.  Why would Owens accept a call from WIP?  It baffles me, unless of course they pay the man to talk to Eskin. More from Philadelphia…

  4. Keepin It Local the Rest of the Way

    Feb 8, 2007, 8:37 AM EDT

    The Flyers snapped a good road stretch by losing to the Avalanche in Denver last night, 2-1. Danny Briere scored the team’s lone goal on the power play in the second, but the ‘Lanche netted two that period as well. Marty Biron stopped 30 of the 32 shots that came his way, marking only the…

  5. Somehow I Doubt I’ll Get to Iverson’s Bash

    Feb 7, 2007, 4:49 PM EDT

    Deciding what to do while in Vegas during NBA All Star weekend 2007 surely will be tough.  Somehow I doubt I’d fit in at Iverson and LeBron’s bash at ICE nightclub.  They’re doing a four night stand at the club — ironically one of maybe 3 clubs I have been to in Vegas — and…

  6. Maybe It’s Okay The Sixers Are Winning

    Feb 7, 2007, 12:07 PM EDT

    If you’re any kind of sports fan in the greater Philadelphia area, you’ve heard by now about Greg Oden, Kevin Durant, and the tremendous depth in this years NBA draft class.  You’ve also likely been rooting for the Sixers to lose, lose, and lose some more in hopes of securing the top chance at winning…

  7. Villanova Cordially Invites You to a Wine-and-Cheese With LSU

    Feb 7, 2007, 11:51 AM EDT

    This guest post comes to us from Villanova alum Carl Patrizio, who witnessed the dramatic action from last night’s ‘Nova-LSU game in person. The Villanova Wildcats have never been known to be a “Philly” team.  Ok, sure, they reside in Philly and contribute to Philly’s well-respected college hoops scene.  But let’s just say that Nova…

  8. Ed Stefanski: The Early Years

    Feb 7, 2007, 10:45 AM EDT

    Ed Stefanski is a new name to the average fan in Philadelphia but he’s been around basketball for decades.  Most recently he was with the Nets, but back in the day he worked alongside Marc Zumoff.  Ahhh, PRISM. After the jump, the Stefanski-strator!

  9. The Hawk May Not Have Died

    Feb 7, 2007, 9:28 AM EDT

    But they sure got a beat down last night. Villanova certainly got the better of St. Joe’s last night in a game that aired on ESPN.  The game took place on Nova’s campus, but if Phil Martelli — who we think rules — had his way, all Big 5 games would be played at the…

  10. Bienvenido a Miami

    Feb 7, 2007, 9:06 AM EDT

    I can only hope my Vegas adventures next weekend can come close to the KSK & Deadspin peeps exploits in Miami last week. [KSK]

  11. Duce Staley To Retire As Eagle

    Feb 7, 2007, 9:00 AM EDT

    Former Eagle fan favorite Duce Staley will be in town this week and is retiring an Eagle.  You may have thought Duuuce retired a year or so ago… I did too. According to this party invite, somebody thinks Duce is getting his number retired. The Duce Is Loose one last time as he is getting…

  12. Banner Supporting ReidMcNabb ’08 Ticket

    Feb 6, 2007, 10:25 PM EDT

    On the Howard Eskin show earlier tonight, Joe Banner stated that he thinks both Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb will be with the Eagles next season.  Regarding McNabb, Banner pointed to his being only the fourth QB to go to four straight conference championship games, and to McNabb’s success in his first seven years in…
