  1. 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. …

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Well He Has That Tattoo at Least

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

  8. Chris Webber Buyout Almost Complete

    Jan 10, 2007, 11:22 AM EDT

    For those curious how a buyout works, basically the Sixers would give Webber a portion of the money owed to him and save a couple million dollars over the next two seasons.  All of Webber’s contract will still count against the Sixers salary cap.  According to many sources the deal is all but finalized.  Hoopsworld:…

  9. Philly May No Longer Have Allen Iverson But They Have Tonex

    Jan 10, 2007, 6:36 AM EDT

    The Sixers are obviously not going to draw a big crowd to many of their home games this year.  Without A.I. suiting up every night, there isn’t a real good reason to shell out big bucks for Sixers tickets unless LeBron or .  Tonex is in town Friday night to solve all of those problems:…

    Jan 9, 2007, 8:38 PM EDT

    Joe Horn was bothered today by his injured groin and sat out of much of the Saints practice. Four-time Pro Bowl receiver Joe Horn sat out significant portions of the New Orleans Saints’ practice Tuesday, still bothered by the groin injury that caused him to miss the last four games of the regular season. Saints…
