  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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]

  4. ‘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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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. …

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…
