  1. How Do We Clone Ryan Howard? Finds New Agent

    Jan 12, 2007, 4:15 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard is going to have one heck of a trophy room after the past year.  Even after becoming one of the biggest athletes in sports, he remains one of the most jovial and likable players around.  He was in Boston yesterday accepting a Baseball Writers Award. Some athletes dodge the winter banquet circuit, especially…

  2. Riley Cote, Bam! Kapow! Splat!

  3. When Big Jon Talks, The Defense Listens

    Jan 12, 2007, 11:43 AM EDT

    When you look at Jon Runyan, it’s hard not to picture him being this towering force of a man on the sidelines.  Turns out, it’s true.  This makes me happy. "Runyan came over and said, ‘Come on, we just need one (stop),’ " linebacker Takeo Spikes said of offensive tackle Jon Runyan. "I hate that.…

  4. Eagles Game Face Song by C. Nice

    Jan 12, 2007, 10:20 AM EDT

    The Seattle Seahawks have a weak, weak, attempt at a song about QB Matt Hasselbeck set to the tune of Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back, the Chicago Bears have video of Ditka singing the Bears fight song, last years Colts had Lil Ronnie,even the Chargers fight song made it onto the late late show. Now what…

  5. Fukudome?

    Jan 12, 2007, 9:44 AM EDT

    If indeed the Phillies can’t or won’t re-sign Aaron Rowand, we’d love to see them take a shot at this guy. The 30-year-old Fukudome is regarded as one of the best outfielders in Japanese professional baseball. He was a key member of the Japanese team that won the inaugural World Baseball Classic in March 2006.…

  6. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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. …

  12. 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…
