  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Frank TV Does Killer Sir Charles

    Jan 21, 2007, 10:44 AM EDT

    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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…


    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…
