  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

    This clip has been making the Internet rounds but I thought I’d pass it along for those who haven’t seen it.  Frank Caliendo does a killer Barkley impersonation.

  5. Patriots Favored By a Double Deuce (and Still Rising)

    Jan 20, 2007, 10:54 PM EDT

    Yesterday, we heard that the Birds were a 17-point underdog in their match-up with the best football team ever  assembled this Sunday in Foxboro. The spread jumped to 22 today, and ESPN already has it at a record-breaking 23.5, making yesterday’s 17 look like the Google IPO. Considering Donovan McNabb hasn’t even been ruled out…

  6. Eagles to Sign Aussie Punter

    Jan 20, 2007, 5:13 PM EDT

    Les Bowen reports that the Eagles have agreed to terms with Saverio Rocca, a 33-year-old Australian Football player. Bowen points out that the Birds often pick up a second punter for camp, but there’s already a lot of buzz about this guy, likely due to the success of other Aussies like Mat McBriar and Darren…

  7. ALL YOUR CHANTS WORKED: J.ROLL IS THE NL MVP!!!

    Jan 20, 2007, 2:02 PM EDT

    We’ve been waiting and debating (ok, other people were debating), but it was just announced that our own Jimmy Rollins is the National League MVP. Matt Holliday had a helluva season, and his Rockies made a great run. There was plenty of room to argue for him to be the MVP, but what we saw…

  8. 1 Redskins Fan

    Jan 20, 2007, 12:17 PM EDT

    You know, I didn’t think Redskins fans had funny in them but this is pretty good. [from SI.com] This is pretty good too.  Just don’t look in the middle.

  10. B&C Prematurely Celebrating Jimmy Rollins Day

    Jan 20, 2007, 12:19 AM EDT

    Meech may or may not be known for being premature in certain areas, but he has faith in our man J-Roll.  We can dig it.  He’s wasted no time in anointing November 20th, 2007, "Jimmy Rollins Day."  He’s got a big day planned and we’ve been told it may feature some of Jimmy’s family highlights…

  11. La Salle to Explore Not Having a Football Team Again

    Jan 19, 2007, 10:54 PM EDT

    Citing difficulty in finding suitable opponents in the ever-weakening MAAC, La Salle has dissolved its football team again. The Explorers took a 56-year break before, bringing the program back in 1997. The school insists the decision has nothing to do with the team’s performance, but going 0-10 doesn’t exactly help. La Salle is the sixth…
