  1. Flyers Get Wild on the Road

    Feb 6, 2007, 8:13 AM EDT

    Although there have been some struggles at home recently, the Flyers are keeping up with the Rangers and the surging Devils by winning away, with four straight wins on the road. Last night in Minnesota, the Jeff Carter line did the scoring, and backup goalie Antero Niittymaki had another solid night in net, with the…

  2. Iguodala’s Got Game

    Feb 6, 2007, 12:19 AM EDT

    The Sixers handed the Nets another tough loss last night at the Wachovia Center.  Andre Iguodala had a sick line, dropping a career high 15 assists to go along with his 23 points. The Sixers seem to like this thing they call winning.  I get the sense a certain player living near the Rockies had…

  3. Quotable: Favre vs. McNabb

    Feb 5, 2007, 10:17 PM EDT

    A comment from Chris on my last post in which I mentioned that John Clayton believes the Eagles should look at how well Favre has done in his "old age" when they decide on the fate of five. Allow me to put this in perspective. Clayton seems to forget: Favre is an NFL iron man.…

  4. Sir Charles Can Gamble

    Feb 5, 2007, 10:11 PM EDT

    Sir Charles likes to throw some money around.  How’d he do this weekend?  Up almost three quarters of a million — not too shabby. [Fanhouse]

  5. McNabb Practices, Should Be Ready For Giants This Week

    Feb 5, 2007, 3:38 PM EDT

    Number five returned to practice today with the Birds and should be the starting quarterback on Sunday against the Giants.  Mathematically speaking, the Eagles are not eliminated from the playoff hunt just yet, but realistically, most fans don’t believe the team will get there. This leads to the question of what the final four games…

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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]

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
