  1. American League Champion Red Sox Return to Philly Next Season

    Dec 22, 2006, 6:11 PM EDT

    Just a quick note highlighting some of the games for next season that the Phils announced today.             The American League Champion Red Sox come to Philadelphia for a three-game set from June 16-18, as part of Interleague Play. The Phillies also host the Jays (May 16-18) and Angels (June 20-22). I…

  2. Jon Stewart on Bruce Springsteen

    Dec 22, 2006, 5:27 PM EDT

    Because I’m getting sick of laughing at the Eagles.

  3. Great Effort By Philly Hotel’s Kitchen Falls Short in Final Seconds

    Dec 22, 2006, 4:05 PM EDT

    Apparently, the Bears were outraged by the poor room service they got on the eve of their victory in Philly. ‘We were pretty fired up [Saturday night] in our team meeting," Muhammad said. "We had terrible room service, and the food was terrible at the hotel.  They did just about everything they can do here…

  4. Old One Chair Packs a Punch

    Dec 22, 2006, 3:09 PM EDT

    We, like most, give Bill Conlin his fair share of crap, but today he has a paragraph that hits the proverbial nail on the head. With an arrogance that has become more and more the face of this franchise, Andy Reid refused to answer a question on how much trouble the loss heaps on the…

  5. Loss Week Goat Herding

    Dec 22, 2006, 9:29 AM EDT

    Whenever the Eagles drop a game they should have won, there’s no shortage of blame to go around in Philly. We hold our teams accountable if they underperform, and it’s rare we take it easy on the guilty parties. So without further ado, let’s you and I determine whose fault yesterday’s debacle was. I’ll begin…

  6. Remember: Prevent Defense Just Prevents You From Winning

    If you need me, I’ll be the guy with my head under my pillow for the rest of the night. [FanHouse]

  7. WATN: Paul Byrd

    Dec 21, 2006, 9:03 AM EDT

    <p> Watching Paul Byrd put together a 2-0 post-season record with a 3.60 ERA for the Indians this month, we all remember the All-Star season he put in for the Phillies in 1999. With 15 high-ERA wins in 2007, Byrd looked poised to get a raise in the free agent market this off-season. </p> <p>In…

  8. Temple Wins 3 Games for First Time Since 1990

    Dec 20, 2006, 6:47 PM EDT

    We can hardly believe it, but the Temple Owls have won 3 straight football games. Despite losing starting QB Adam DiMichele to a nasty looking broken leg, Temple beat Miami (OH) 24-17 today at the Linc. Sophomore QB Vaughn Charlton stepped in and stepped up, throwing for 109 yards and a TD. It may be…

  9. Note to Big Jon: Beware of Attacking Tubs

    Big Jon Runyan and the tub didn’t get along too well the other day. [FanHouse]

  10. Schil’s Swan Song in Beantown?

    Dec 20, 2006, 10:58 AM EDT

    I don’t like the Red Sox but certainly find them intriguing.  Tonight they face elimination in game 6 of the ALCS at Fenway Park.  None other than Curt Schilling will be taking the mound.  That’s a game worth watching.  For all the crap people give Schil, it’s quotes like this that make you want to…

  11. Eagles Worst Nightmare Unfolds: Darwin Walker May Play Sunday

    Dec 19, 2006, 1:21 PM EDT

    News out of Chicago is that DT Darwin Walker returned to Bears practice yesterday and could very likely suit up against the Eagles on Sunday. When they traded him away this off-season for Takeo Spikes and Kelly Holcomb, the Eagles must have been circling that December 30th matchup with the Bills on their calendars and…

  12. Glad to See Lito Back

    Dec 19, 2006, 1:38 AM EDT

    It looks like Lito Sheppard will be in the lineup against the Bears. Random thought: I think one of my favorite things ever about the Eagles is after a Lito pick-6 when they play that song and the whole stadium sings along. [FanHouse]
