  1. Probably Not the Most Efficient Use of a Zamboni

    Feb 1, 2007, 3:20 PM EDT

    It wasn’t just the hormonal Delco teens getting hot and heavy at the Ice Works in Aston this weekend, as a zamboni burst into flames and filled the place with thick smoke. No word yet on what started the fire, but I’m rooting for spontaneous combustion or arson by a disgruntled Comcast subscriber. >>Zamboni Catches…

  2. Pistol Pete’s Rectal Exam

    Feb 1, 2007, 2:57 PM EDT

    A reader emails: I was wondering if you had read Stan Hochman’s article today about how Pistol Pete was almost a Sixer back in 1980. I think this is the money quote here: "And then, in ’80," Williams said, picking up the narrative, "Utah waived him and Philly needed help at guard. So did Boston.…

  3. Not a Good Day for Andy Reid

    Feb 1, 2007, 1:40 PM EDT

    6 ABC has the latest: Documents just obtained by Action News show police recovered a Remington police magnum shotgun, 45 caliber bullets, a plastic container with white powder, several baggies with white residue, and a pharmacy container holding a green, leafy substance. Uh oh.  This has gone from innocent poor driving skills to a bunch…

  4. Philly’s Negativity Fueled by Media?

    Feb 1, 2007, 12:21 PM EDT

    The BM Rant, a fine Philly based blog, questions whether Philadelphia’s negativity is more of a creation by the media rather than the fans being innately negative. I ask my fellow Philly sports fans: Was McNabb’s cancelled press conference of two weeks ago a big deal to anyone not presently employed as a sports writer…

  5. Golden Boy Makes More Than Paterno

    Feb 1, 2007, 11:37 AM EDT

    When JoePa’s salary was made public this week, we were a bit surprised that it was about half what many people thought it was. More surprising is that Temple head coach Al Golden makes more than Paterno, his former coach (in base salary anyway): Joe Paterno’s salary has been revealed to be $512,664. Just in…

  6. Eagles To Play On New Grass

    The Eagles will play on new grass tomorrow. [FH]

  7. Stallworth Hopes to be an Eagle

    Feb 1, 2007, 9:42 AM EDT

    Donovan isn’t the only Eagle in Miami.  Donte Stallworth was down in Florida and had some encouraging things to say. "I think they’ve talked a little bit to Drew [Rosenhaus]," Stallworth said. "I’m sure there are going to be teams that offer me more, but in my case, it’s not going to be all about…

  8. Donovan Does Miami

    Feb 1, 2007, 12:44 AM EDT

    Hopefully this is the last Eagles fans have to hear about Donovan McNabb for a while. [Fanhouse]

  9. Wing Bowl 15

    Feb 1, 2007, 12:38 AM EDT

    For the most part we haven’t covered much Wing Bowl 15 hype, mostly because we haven’t been tuned in to the WIP morning show lately and also because we won’t be soaking wet in the parking lot of the Wachovia Center at 4:00 AM this year. For those who need their fill, the odds on…

  10. WATN: James Thrash

    Jan 31, 2007, 4:22 PM EDT

    What is James Thrash up to these days?  He’s co-owner of Philbin’s Family Fitness of course.  Thrash was spotted at some sort of press conference in D.C. involving a 7 foot 9 Asian basketball player and a guy named "White Chocolate" Naturally, talk turned to whether Thrash would be suiting up for the Nighthawks. "Matter…

  11. Phillies Forget Who is On Their Team

    Jan 31, 2007, 2:26 PM EDT

    Okay, so I admit this is a stupid post, but over on the Phillies website they have an article about a Poker tournament to raise money in honor of Cory Lidle.  Lots of players chipped in to help, including Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins.  And apparently another Phillie. Ultimate Blackjack Tour ( was the title…

  12. F Da Eagles Chica in Maxim

    Jan 31, 2007, 11:46 AM EDT

    Head on over to With Leather where our boy Matt has posted pictures of the infamous F#!* Da Eagles girl, Heather Rothstein, from the New Orleans game.  She appears in this month’s Maxim magazine.  Be ready for some Maxim style pictures people, NSFW-esque.
