  1. Flyers Look Back at 40 Years

    Jan 24, 2007, 2:20 PM EDT

    A history lesson for most of us.  Okay, I’ll admit it.  I like the Flyers.

  2. Flyers 1 Draft Pick in 2007!

    Jan 24, 2007, 12:11 PM EDT

    Continuing with our Flyers theme today, I’d like to point you in the direction of a phenomenal Flyers tee shirt I just purchased (head band not included)  You can get your very own as well.  But you probably shouldn’t. Because, you know, you don’t want to have the same shirt as me. It’s made by…

  3. Gagne, Forsberg, & Stallone

    Jan 24, 2007, 9:29 AM EDT

    Simon Gagne was the lone Flyer names to the All Star team.  He scored in last nights skills competition. Apparently, some ESPN guy didn’t think Forsberg should have made the squad. [ESPN] We’ve mentioned it before around here, but Peter Forsberg may have some teams interest. [Blinq] The Flyers have named Sylvester Stallone as Honorary…

  4. McNabb Reports Were False

    Jan 24, 2007, 8:56 AM EDT

    Just like we had guessed yesterday, the reports in the Trenton Times are completely off base according to Andy Reid and Donovan’s agent.  That’s it, nothing else to talk about.  I take back all my negative comments about McNabb until we hear from Super Five himself. >>Reid: McNabb stories were made up [Inquirer]

  5. Game On!

    Jan 24, 2007, 4:30 AM EDT

    Today is the big day.  The game you’ve all been waiting for, the NHL All Star game in Dallas!  What’s that?  You can’t name 4 players in the NHL?  Okay, let’s set the record straight.  To be honest, we’re not the most die hard of Flyers fans, but we can get into the playoff atmosphere,…

  6. WATN: Dikembe Mutombo

    Jan 23, 2007, 10:20 PM EDT

    Deke was honored during G.W.’s state of the union just now.  Deadspin has a much better photo of the tallest person at last nights SOTU.

  7. The Bill Conlin Trashing Bloggers Garbage

    Jan 23, 2007, 3:57 PM EDT

    In case you’ve missed it, Bill Conlin trashes bloggers.  Read here to catch up. Perhaps the most amazing line of an email from Bill Conlin to Crashburn Alley: The only positive thing I can think of about Hitler’s time on earth-I’m sure he would have eliminated all bloggers. Wow.  As a Deadspin commenter notes, "I’m…

  8. Get Creative Against New England

    Jan 23, 2007, 3:17 PM EDT

    It looks like Donovan McNabb will likely be on the sideline for the game Sunday night against the amazing Patriots.  That will leave things up to A.J. Feeley or more realistically Brian Westbrook.  It may get ugly. But just because the Eagles have an extremely small chance of winning doesn’t mean they can’t go down…

  9. McNabb Drama We Don’t Need

    Jan 23, 2007, 12:50 PM EDT

    I’m starting to get a little sick of McNabb and I’m one of his supporters.  I have a feeling we may be hearing a lot of this bickering from number five. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is unhappy with coach Andy Reid, fellow quarterback Jeff Garcia and the media for how they are portraying his…

  10. Ovechkin, Crapitals Desperate for Some Black Friday Magic

    Jan 23, 2007, 10:46 AM EDT

    With the late game between the Colts and the Falcons banished to the cavernous depths of the NFL Network, regular folk had to find something other than pro football to watch while getting their digestion on last night. USC-ASU was pretty solid, but Comcast SportsNet had another option: a replay of the 5-OT Flyers-Penguins playoff…

  11. Howard On Utley and Contracts

    Jan 23, 2007, 10:01 AM EDT

    Ryan Howard was honored yesterday by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association with their Outstanding Professional Athlete award.  Aside from the award, Howard said some interesting things. The topic of the night focused around Chase Utley getting the dream contract and how Ryan felt about being the reigning NL MVP.  Did Howard complain about not getting…

  12. Stephen A. Smith: The Lost Episode

    Jan 23, 2007, 5:32 AM EDT

    Word came down last week that Stephen A. Smith’s hit television show, Quite Frankly, had been canceled.  Luckily, we’ve found a lost episode in which Screamin A. has a few special guests.  Barry Bonds, George W. Bush, and Paula Abdul talk to the master of the cheese doodle. Now that Stephen A. has been canned…
