  1. A Commercial Break, Friendo

    Feb 5, 2007, 6:27 AM EDT

    Posting rates around these parts have been at an all time high, and, as I like to think, of increasingly solid content.  So this morning, why not take a minute and see if you’re all caught up. There was an Eagles fan in Antarctica. Most people liked the Phillies new alternate jerseys. We missed Terrell…

  2. Phils Show Interest In Iguchi at 3B

    Feb 4, 2007, 7:21 PM EDT

    The big story of the day in the MLB is Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis heading to Detroit.  Good: keep them out of the NL.  But more interesting for Phillies fans are reports that Pat Gillick has been in talks with Tad Iguchi’s agent about the prospect of Iguchi returning to the Phils and manning…

  3. I’m Just Watching for the Commercials

    Feb 4, 2007, 6:08 PM EDT

    That’s not completely true.  I’m actually really excited to watch the Super Bowl this year.  The last game I really got into was the Eagles loss in New Orleans and Lord knows I was a mess watching that one.  This match up tonight is all fun with Bear v. Colt.  Plus, Billy Joel, Prince, and…

  4. Stephen A. Smith Latest To Hate The Blogger

    Feb 4, 2007, 4:51 PM EDT

    Deadspin pretty much has this story covered to a T, so go read the story there.  But yes, Stephen A. Smith does not think blogs deserve a place on Earth either.  Conlin and Smith would make strange bedfellows wouldn’t they?  A choice quote from Screamin’ A.: And when you look at the internet business, what’s…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
