  1. A View From The 700 Level

    Jan 28, 2007, 5:56 PM EDT

    To start your week off right, we bring you a couple clips from the 700 level of Veterans stadium.  This first one has some NSFW language but will surely bring back memories of the former home of our Phillies and Eagles.  The two videos after the jump will surely make you nostalgic for the old…

  2. Readers Notice the Darndest Things

    Jan 28, 2007, 4:40 PM EDT

    An email from reader Nick: There’s a video up on Philadelphiaphillies.com that interviews Tug McGraw and talks about the 1980 world series.  At 2:31 in the video clip, it looks like a missile hits the visitors’ dugout – it’s obviously some of the fireworks, but incredibly dangerous looking. I can’t figure out how to link…

  3. Wagner’s Already Complaining About the ’08 Mets

    Jan 28, 2007, 12:42 PM EDT

    It’s an early spring for the seeds of discontent in New York, as Billy Wagner has begun bemoaning the loss of Tom Glavine (whom the Mets had pretty much no shot at re-signing, as he wants to wind down his career in Atlanta). Via Metsblog and Surfing the Mets, we have the following Wagner wisdom:…

  4. Phils Set to Unleash Alternate Home Unis

    Jan 28, 2007, 10:33 AM EDT

    Tomorrow, the Phils will hold a press conference sharing their 2008 alternate home uniforms with the public. Today, Meech has an artist’s rendering of the unis, modeled we believe by Charlie Sheen. The uniforms aren’t shockingly different, but they have a throwback appeal, modeled after the Phillies’ late-’40′s gear. Go check ‘em out here.

    Andre Iguodala, Kyle Korver, and Sammy Dalembert all reached the 20 point mark in a win last night in Milwaukee.  Andre Miller was only a bucket short of the 20 point mark; he also added 9 assists and 8 boards.  It was the Bucks first home loss on the season in a game that nobody…

    Jan 28, 2007, 12:32 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins, hot off his MVP season, is back to predicting big things for the Phillies. "We’ll win probably 100 games . . . 100 games will get us to the playoffs," Rollins told Comcast SportsNet last night, when asked for his forecast for next season. "There’s going to be fireworks, I know that much…

  7. Is Billy King Delusional?

    Jan 27, 2007, 9:26 PM EDT

    Today’s Daily News says Andre Miller isn’t going anywhere. "Andre’s our point guard," the 76ers’ president/general manager was saying before last night’s 105-97 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "That’s what we needed. That’s why we got him. You’ve got to have a point guard to compete." Billy, flip over to the standings pages of the…

  8. Hartnell Gets Two for Dashing

    Jan 27, 2007, 8:56 PM EDT

    The NHL has suspended Scott Hartnell for two games after his hit on the Bruins’ Andrew Alberts last night. Marking the fourth time a Flyer has been suspended in this young season, the reaction around the league has been harsh. Maybe I’m on the side of the fan spectrum that has an unhealthy passion to…

  9. Phillies Weak on the Farm

    Jan 27, 2007, 7:25 PM EDT

    According to Craig Law, a random ESPN analyst, the Phillies’ farm system is bad.  How bad?  There is only one team with a worse ranking, San Diego. 29. Philadelphia: Thin system which got thinner by the sudden rise of Cole Hamels. The closest solid-average prospect to the majors here is Carlos Carrasco, who spent the…

  11. Football Food For Fans Week 11

    Jan 27, 2007, 4:04 PM EDT

    Football Food For Fans ~ Week 11, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ Despite this week’s installment not involving meat of any kind, it gets my thumbs up.  While not a seafood guy at heart, anything involving buttery lobster is perfectly acceptable. From Mark’s flickr page: On the menu was homemade New England Clam Chowder. I…

  12. McNabb Says Nothing’s “Bittersweet” After SNF Showdown

    Jan 27, 2007, 9:58 AM EDT

    Philly’s predictably abuzz with QB controversy theories and opinions after A.J. Feeley turned in a great (but by no means perfect) performance against the Patriots on Sunday. Despite throwing 3 picks that cost the Eagles the game early and late, just about everything Ace did in between those fateful drives was precise and methodical, picking…
