  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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]

  7. Deja Vu… Flyers Notch Back-to-Back 4-0 Shutouts

    Dec 18, 2006, 9:52 PM EDT

    In an effort to make ESPN’s Power Rankings look even more horrifically stupid, the Flyers blanked the Devils tonight, winning 4-0 at home for the second straight game. After ranking the Flyers 22nd last week, we guess ESPN didn’t want to admit being completely off-base, so they only ranked the Flyers 14th (behind the Flames…

  8. Quotable: Terrell Owens Can Learn

    Dec 18, 2006, 10:46 AM EDT

    Terrell Owens on dealing with frustration: "As for me getting upset because I’m not getting the ball, going up to the coach telling him to get the ball more, all that did was get me bad publicity.  At the same time, it didn’t get me the ball any more. So I’ve learned." Wow.  A changed…

  9. Flyers 2007 Home Opener Videos

    Dec 18, 2006, 8:45 AM EDT

    With things being a little slow lately, thought I’d post this video clip that apparently opened up the Flyers home opener in Philly.  You can also get a view of what the video looked like from the crowds perspective here and here.  Not bad, not bad.  I know some of the regular commenters were in…

  10. Would Schilling be Good for Phils?

    Dec 18, 2006, 1:02 AM EDT

    Our pal’s over at Bugs and Cranks weigh in on whether or not Curt Schilling would be welcomed back to Philly.  Also, do you know what Curt’s middle name is? My take: I currently don’t have a strong opinion either way on Schil returning to Philadelphia but man, would he provide some good blog fodder.

  11. Allen Iverson: ‘Pimp Mother !@&’

    Allocate the shit out of this video brought to us by RBK via the honorable Mr. Shoals.

  12. No Flyers Suspended in Wake of Last Night

    Dec 17, 2006, 10:54 AM EDT

    The Flyers continued to reward the newfound fandom of Rob Iracane with another blowout win last night, 4-0 over the Thrashers. Mr. Iracane, a native North Jerseyan, has adopted Philly as his second sports home, rooting for both the Eagles and the Flyers this season. The result? The Flyers are on fire. Better yet, no…
