  1. DMac Has Nothing on Cool J

    Feb 5, 2007, 2:51 PM EDT

    A snippet from the Orlando Sentinel blog about the ESPN party in Miami.  No commentary needed. Among those ushered onto the exclusive grounds: Alyssa Milano, Bonnie Bernstein, Donovan McNabb, Troy Smith, Tom Brady and Brady Quinn. Those people did not excite me, though. When LL Cool J took the stage, though … there is a…

  2. Puppy Bowl III

    Feb 5, 2007, 12:12 PM EDT

    I hear Puppy Bowl III was a tremendous game.  As MJD at Deadspin said "I couldn’t enjoy this more if they had a couple of black lab head coaches." Enjoy this video, complete with Harry the K play by play, via Philadelphia Will Do.

  3. J.E. Skeets is Good, STEPHEN A. IS NOT

    Feb 5, 2007, 11:09 AM EDT

    J.E. Skeets of The Basketball Jones has taken over the NBA Closer over at Deadspin.  This morning’s Closer is particularly amazing, done by NONE OTHER THAN STEPHEN A. SMITH.  Go check it out and then tell me you didn’t do the voice in your head while reading. [Deadspin]

  4. Ed Snider Takes Step In Right Direction

    Feb 5, 2007, 10:55 AM EDT

    Step 1: Admit You Have a Problem “We may have been delusional at the end of last season” -Ed Snider Hey, at least he finally realized it.  950 was ripping him a new one this morning but I say kudos for finally doing the right thing.  The past is the past.  Albeit a really shitty…

  5. Castro Looking Good

    Feb 5, 2007, 9:28 AM EDT

    On to baseball. Phillies reliever Fabio Castro looked good yesterday while pitching for the Dominican Republic. Phillies reliever Fabio Castro held Puerto Rico to two hits in five innings last night to lead the unbeaten Dominican Republic to a 12-0 rout in the Caribbean Series in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Castro struck out four and walked…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
