  1. Andy Reid: The Softer Side

    Jan 22, 2007, 3:50 PM EDT

    Andy Reid writes poetry.  Not only does he write poetry, he’s quite prolific.  For those used to watching Andy Reid’s press conferences, you will surely be shocked out how open he is in this piece. Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t it seem like he’s teaching his son to hold? "Grab his jersey and…

  2. McNabb Sits Out of Thanksgiving Practice

    Jan 22, 2007, 1:47 PM EDT

    Donovan McNabb sat out of practice for the second straight day today.  He may or may not play on Sunday.  Does it really matter? [FanHouse]

  3. Parcells Era Over in Dallas

    Jan 22, 2007, 12:39 PM EDT

    News out of Dallas this morning has the Tuna leaving town, retiring from coaching for a third time. I have a lot of respect for Bill Parcells, and I think  it’s a huge blow to any playoff team to lose its coach unwillingly, but especially one of his caliber and talent. As an Eagles fan,…

  4. Stallworth’s Fate Told Through a Wall Hanging at NovaCare Complex?

    Jan 22, 2007, 11:23 AM EDT

    A quick look at some Fanhouse goodness. I found a posting by Chris McPherson regarding Donte Stallworth’s fate as an Eagle quite interesting. [Eagles Fanhouse] The earliest Super Bowl preview. [Fanhouse] Freshman domination in Texas-Nova [Fanhouse]

  5. Villanova Holds Durant in Check

    Jan 22, 2007, 9:01 AM EDT

    If I hadn’t read all of the hype about Kevin Durant prior to watching Villanova beat Texas on Saturday, I would have put him as the second or third best player on the Longhorns — not anything remotely resembling a lottery pick.  All the credit has to go to the ‘Nova big men for holding…

  6. Who Owns the Lane? Iverson or Carmelo

    Jan 22, 2007, 12:01 AM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets take on the Memphis Grizzlies in a game this evening with multiple implications for the Sixers.  Philadelphia is currently battling Memphis for the worst record in the league with the Celtics trying to make it a three team race.  Sixers fans have adopted the Griz as our second team for the rest…

  7. Hat Trick! Danny Briere’s First as Flyer

    Jan 21, 2007, 10:06 PM EDT

    The Flyers’ turkey will taste a little sweeter tomorrow after a nice 6-3 victory in Carolina.  The Fly guys scored four goals in the third period, three of them off of the stick of Danny Briere.  It was his first hat trick as a Flyer. Scott Hartnell is earning his paycheck while there’s no goalie…

  8. What Is This, Amateur Night?

    Jan 21, 2007, 7:44 PM EDT

    The Flyers are down in Carolina to square off against a nice couple of guys we all wish were still in Orange and Black. Looks like they’re off to a rough start, down 1-0 in the first. I’ll be watching the game until I head out to what for some reason is fondly referred to…

  9. Utley Signs 85 Million Deal Leaving Phillies Fans Elated

    Jan 21, 2007, 1:12 PM EDT

    Chase Utley will be wearing a Phillies uniform for many years to come.  Philadelphia fans couldn’t be more excited. The deal is for 7 years making Utley a Phillie through 2013.  This was step one in locking up one of the best infields this city may ever see.  Jimmy Rollins and Chase got their long…

  10. Thanksgiving Football (You Know, For Kids)

    Jan 21, 2007, 12:30 PM EDT

    Ahhh, the Glory Days.  From the grade school rivalries to the high school battles, youth football on Thanksgiving is about as American as you can get.  I fondly remember the days when my Sacred Heart (Manoa) Crusaders used to beat up on the Annunciation Raiders in Havertown.  The Turkey Bowl was our Super Bowl.  Domination…

  11. A Sobering Look at the Eagles Off-Season

    Jan 21, 2007, 11:42 AM EDT

    Mark Eckel of the Trenton Times put together a great column today on the possible “comings and goings” the Eagles may see before next season, and if he’s right, we could be looking at a very different team in 2007. Eckel breaks it down by position, naming the most likely departures and the reasoning behind…
