  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Sean Williams & Akida McLain Done at BC

    Jan 18, 2007, 12:26 AM EDT

    Bad news coming out of Chestnut Hill today with word that Sean Williams and Akida McLain were dismissed from the team.  There’s no word yet as to why they were let go but niether of them were a stranger to trouble.  This is horrible news for a BC fan. For more on this:>>Boston College Dismisses…

  7. The Mustache Rides On

    Jan 17, 2007, 9:06 PM EDT

    Sal Fasano is headed north of the border, having signed a minor league contract with the Blue Jays. He will be invited to try to win a roster spot with the club in spring training. I can’t remember a player as average as Fasano becoming so popular with Phillies fans, with the backup catcher even…

  8. The Battle for the Bottom

    Jan 17, 2007, 1:20 PM EDT

    A match up for the ages will take place tonight between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Memphis Grizzlies.  The two teams have combined for 19 wins so far this season.  They may make the battle for last place in the NBA a two team race if they keep losing at such rapid clips.  I wonder…

  9. Mark McGwire Fleer

    Jan 17, 2007, 12:00 PM EDT

    With the Eagles season ending, we’d like to return to our baseball card of the week feature.  This week we depart from our typical Philly athlete to examine the much debated Mark McGwire. Without further ado, a card from the days of yore.  A baseball card from a time when the cream was something you…

  10. No Lack of Rendell Analysis

    Jan 17, 2007, 10:50 AM EDT

    For those of you who can’t get enough Fast Eddie, he should be around to analyze Eagles games for quite a while.

  11. An ESPN Photo Without Comment

    Jan 17, 2007, 9:05 AM EDT

    Something about this photo from the frontpage of ESPN.com made me feel the need to take a screengrab and share it with all of you.  I don’t have anything to say about it really.  Just enjoy. The associated articles: Webber signs on with Detroit | CWebb on going home again | Broussard: Pumped for a…

  12. Mo-Tivational Speaker

    Jan 17, 2007, 9:02 AM EDT

    When you tie a Wachovia Center record for least first-half points (27), two things are likely. First, you’re gonna get your ass reamed by the coach at halftime, and second, you may need to break some sort of positive record in the second half to win. By most accounts, Sixers coach Mo Cheeks isn’t a…
