  1. Video: More on King & Stefanski

    Feb 4, 2007, 3:15 PM EDT

    I think Matt made a good point in the comments section regarding King: I will say this for the guy–he was about as good an interview and seemingly nice guy as there is in pro sports brass. He hasn’t had an easy question to answer in years, but he’s been fairly approachable to the local…

  2. WATN: Mark Recchi Waived By Pens

    Feb 4, 2007, 2:02 PM EDT

    Word from TSN is that Mark Recchi’s been waived by Pittsburgh, after limited productivity in the games for which he wasn’t a healthy scratch. If you’re a hockey fan in Philly, you’re a fan of Recchi, who’s been a class act and a talented player for years. I’d love to see him retire in Orange…

  3. Scottie Upshall Enjoys Life

    Feb 4, 2007, 12:02 PM EDT

    Remember when EA Sports NHL Hockey added the one-timer and you used it to destroy Arturs Irbe? Well if they want to add a new move that simulates the hockey lifestyle, a two-at-a-timer should be next. Scottie Upshall, being interviewed by WMMR’s Preston & Steve, dropped this juice on lucky P&S listeners and readers of…

  4. Superbowl XLI

    Feb 4, 2007, 11:09 AM EDT

    Today will be a great day.  We’re trying to sit on the couch for 12 straight hours without getting up.  We’ll be updating with all sorts of Super Bowl goodness.  So check back.  Take a trip back to Superbowl XL. What’s up with ESPN airing bowling right now? The early leader for best Super Bowl…

  5. Cole Hamels Married on New Year’s Eve

    Feb 4, 2007, 10:12 AM EDT

    Note: This article is from February 2007. The date above is incorrect. Chase Utley wasn’t the only Phillies player to tie the knot this offseason.  Cole Hamels married former Survivor star Heidi Strobel on New Year’s eve in her hometown in Missouri.  The Inquirer’s Michael Klein has more on the couple. The couple – he’s…

  6. Andy Reid Gets A Tad Testy, Writer Quips Back, Perhaps Inaccurately

    Feb 4, 2007, 10:11 AM EDT

    Yes, it’s true.  Andy Reid got a little annoyed during his weekly press conference on Monday.  A Trenton Times writer hypes the incident up while taking shots at Reid and his team.  Some very warranted, others not so much. A few seasons ago, a writer could probably pen that when prodded, Reid looked as if…

  7. Breaking: Sixers GM Billy King Fired

    Feb 4, 2007, 1:17 AM EDT

    The only surprising thing about Billy King’s departure from the Philadelphia 76ers is that it didn’t happen sooner. The Sixers were beaten on Monday by the Atlanta Hawks, a team the Sixers have had luck against recently.  With a 5-12 record, attendance struggling mightily, and no light at the end of the tunnel, the higher…

  8. Don’t Call The Fat, Furry Pig ‘PorkChop!’

    Feb 3, 2007, 9:46 PM EDT

    The Lehigh Valley IronPigs — one word! — named their new mascot, a large, furry pig, "PorkChop."  It seems rather perfect to me, "PorkChop."  Apparently this doesn’t fly with the Hispanic population and the IronPigs quickly renamed the mascot.  Now I was unaware of the term "Pork Chop" being a derogatory term for a person…

  9. Shocker: The Sixers Have Bad Attendance

    Feb 3, 2007, 5:48 PM EDT

    Dominating over any team is not something you’d usually associate with the Sixers, but apparently they’ve done quite well against the Hawks as of late.  The Sixers have won 8 out of 10 against Atlanta and look to continue that streak this evening at the Wachovia Center.  Problem is: nobody will be there to see…

  10. Cote Suspended, Flyers ‘On Notice’

    Feb 3, 2007, 3:56 PM EDT

    Call me biased, but I think the Flyers are being unfairly targeted here.  Riley Cote has just been given a three game suspension and the team has been put "on notice," whatever that means. To be honest, the only thing it does is remind us of the brilliance of Stephen Colbert.

  11. Fact of Day: What’s a Marlie?

    Feb 3, 2007, 3:00 PM EDT

    There is a team in the AHL known as the Toronto Marlies.  I saw that they beat the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL yesterday by the score of 4-2 and wondered, "What in the world is a ‘Marlie’?"  Turns out, it’s not that interesting. Via Wikipedia: The team is named after the former Toronto Marlboroughs…

  12. Should We Get These Guys Crested Blazers?

    Feb 3, 2007, 12:52 PM EDT

    Over the weekend, I thought of posting a question asking which Flyer would be the next to earn himself a suspension. We may already have our answer. If the haters covering the NHL in Canada and elsewhere have their way, Riley Cote may become the latest member of the Suspension Club. Cote came hard with…
