  1. We’d Like to Welcome Back Monday

    Jan 12, 2007, 7:08 AM EDT

    We’ve neglected the Monday Extras — mostly because we now just throw random links up in the "Recently Read" list, anyone like that? — for quite some time around these parts and a number of our "fans" have said they miss them.  One person even told me that was the only thing they actually liked…

  2. Jeff Garcia Mania Continues

    Fanhouse: Jeff Garcia Knocks Out Joe Frazier

  3. It’s Not Easy Being a Sixers Fan

    Jan 12, 2007, 12:50 AM EDT

    Check out this headline yesterday from Reuters: Knicks on Fire as Sixers Opt for Webber Buyout. It seems just yesterday the Knicks were the brunt of every NBA joke around.  It’s a sad state of Sixers basketball in the wake of the Iverson trade that left Sixers fans in need of a little faith.  The…

  4. Perhaps If More Pig-Snouted Fans Had Cross-Dressed…

    Jan 11, 2007, 6:19 PM EDT

    It wasn’t pretty for a while there, but the Eagles came back to take a division game on the road in Washington and keep the season “mediocre.” Donovan’s numbers look better than some of his passes did, but we’ll take a 4-TD performance any time. His 37 rushing yards were all meaningful, and showed defenses…

  5. Joe Banner Needs to Keep His Mouth Shut

    Jan 11, 2007, 2:08 PM EDT

    Fanhouse: Eagles Management Need to Keep Their Mouths Shut Update: Eagles president Joe Banner did an exclusive interview with Comcast this evening.  It seems like the Inquirer article was taken a bit out of context.  Joe, we love the Eagles, but we’re not going to worship Lurie for doing what he should have done in…

  6. Weddings During Eagles Games Suck

    Jan 11, 2007, 11:29 AM EDT

    There’s nothing worse than a wedding getting in the way of an Eagles playoff game. At least they plan on having some TVs. [Pantagraph] Not a single one of these SI reporters picked the Eagles to beat the Saints [Sports Illustrated] Bill Parcells: ‘I’ve Always Hated Football’ [The Onion] Ryan Howard just keeps winning awards. …

  7. Don’t Hold Your Breath for Rowand in ’08

    Jan 11, 2007, 8:40 AM EDT

    When I heard the news of the Bourn-Lidge trade, I liked it because I thought it probably meant two things: (1) Brett Myers will go back the role I bemoaned him leaving last season, and (2) the Phillies would push hard to re-sign Aaron Rowand. Lidge will cost less this season (and may not be…

  8. Phils Keep Romero With 3-Year Deal

    Jan 10, 2007, 9:46 PM EDT

    It’s been confirmed that the Phillies have re-signed lefty reliever J.C. Romero with a 3-year, $12 million deal with a club option for a fourth. It’s a lot of money for a very middle reliever who’s been inconsistent at best over his career, but it’s hard not to like the deal after seeing how well…

  9. Flyers Taking It to the Pens Early

    Jan 10, 2007, 7:29 PM EDT

    Eight minutes into the first period down at the Wachovia Center, the Flyers are up 2-0 over the Penguins on the strength of two power-play goals by Mike Knuble. There are few greater sights in the league than a man named Michel screaming like he might kill someone, and we’ve had the pleasure twice in…

  10. Sean Payton a Philly Local (Sorta)

    Jan 10, 2007, 3:00 PM EDT

    After reading this Inquirer article, I found out that NFL coach of the year Sean Payton grew up just down West Chester Pike in Newtown Square. He was raised on Rick MacLeish, Bill Barber, Reggie Leach and Bernie Parent, and played deck hockey as well as the real thing on an icy pond down a…

  11. Technically, It is a Home Game for Temple

    Jan 10, 2007, 12:09 PM EDT

    The Penn State Nittany Lions came to town today to play the Temple Owls at a game at Lincoln Financial Field.  Kickoff was scheduled for noon, but chances are you didn’t see it, unless of course you’re down at the Linc.  This is technically a home game for Al Golden’s Owls, but in reality there…

  12. Well He Has That Tattoo at Least

    Jan 10, 2007, 12:07 PM EDT

    Rumor time!  How about Jeremy Shockey wanting to be an Eagle.  Discuss.
