  1. “Mike Richards Is An All-Star” Write-In Campaign Underway

    Jan 19, 2007, 3:14 PM EDT

    When the All-Star ballots were released last week, the Flyers were decently represented, with the likes of Danny Briere, Marty Biron, Simony Gagne, and Kimmo Timonen on the list. However, a few fans have noticed one omission—Mike Richards. Richards has put together a great season since being moved up the ranks and given a role…

    I’m putting in my vote for Colbert to take over Tony K’s role on MNF.  (via)

  4. Yo Philly, I Did It!

    Jan 19, 2007, 11:14 AM EDT

    Okay, so I didn’t personally do it, but over 15,000 people decided to go out for nice little run yesterday; some of them didn’t stop for 26.2 miles.  When they finished, they received these nifty little shiny blankets that say, "Yo Philly, I Did It!" 26.2 miles for a tee shirt and a pretzel… these…

  5. Westbrook Super, McNabb Not So Much

    Jan 19, 2007, 6:00 AM EDT

    Perhaps my favorite article on the Eagles 17-7 victory over the Dolphins is Ashley Fox’s piece titled, "Man and Superman, McNabb and Westbrook."  In the early days of The 700 Level, I used to throw around the nickname "Super Five" with regularity.  I believed in the dynamic duo of McNabb’s arm teamed up with his…

  6. Andy Reid Battles Pat Gillick

    Jan 19, 2007, 12:36 AM EDT

    That’s what makes this city so great.  They’re passionate about football.  When it’s all said and done, there is nobody more loyal than than Philadelphia people.                    -Andy Reid on Philadelphia fans Yesterday evening’s drive time radio was full of big name interviews.  610 WIP and 950 WPEN battled…

  7. WATN: Robert Esche Signs With Russian Club

    Jan 19, 2007, 12:12 AM EDT

    When the Flyers traded for Marty "the Save-ior" Biron last season, the writing was on the wall that Robert Esche’s career in Philly was over. Esche failed to land on another NHL roster during the off-season, and the Boston Globe reports that he has signed with Ak-Bars Kazan of the Russian Super League. Wonder how…

  8. Should The Sixers Trade Andre Miller?

    Jan 18, 2007, 3:32 PM EDT

    Andre Miller will never live up to being the main asset the Sixers received in return for Allen Iverson.  He is a nice player, a point guard who knows how to run an offense, something the Sixers have lacked since the days of "6 feet of" Eric Snow.  It is unlikely that Miller will be…

  9. An All-Too Familiar Scene: McNabb Hurt Again

    Jan 18, 2007, 2:05 PM EDT

    As if things couldn’t look worse for the Eagles in the first half today, Donovan McNabb just left the field for the locker room with a heavy limp. Other than the flea-flicker TD that was negated by L.J. Smith’s hold, McNabb was having a terrible game, throwing 2 picks on plays in which he had…

  10. Philadelphia: Where Golf is Cheap and Awesome

    Jan 18, 2007, 12:22 PM EDT

    It took great will power to refrain from using a Big Lebowski quote in the title of this post.  An interesting tidbit in USA Today points out that Philadelphia is a haven for golfers. With 12 months of golfing left in the New Year, not everyone is planning a trip to Pebble Beach or Scotland.…

  11. Waters Suicide Potentially Caused by Football Injuries

    Jan 18, 2007, 9:43 AM EDT

    A rather scary story in today’s New York Times tells of how one expert believes Andre Waters depression and suicide were significantly effected by the vicious hits he made while playing football. Since the former National Football League player Andre Waters killed himself in November, an explanation for his suicide has remained a mystery. But…

  12. Greg Oden May Not Even Make a Dent

    Jan 18, 2007, 5:27 AM EDT

    70-49 That was the score at halftime in the FedEx forum last night.  The Sixers were down by 21 points at HALFTIME.  The problems Philadelphia has are not going to be fixed with the bounce of a ping pong ball.  It may take ping pong balls bouncing the right way for the next fer years…
