  1. Football Food For Fans – Week 5

    Dec 15, 2006, 2:30 PM EDT

    Let’s face it, Mark eats a whole lot better than your average football fan.  While the rest of us likely dial up the local pizza shop on Sunday, Mark eats like a champion.  That is shown in his meal for the Jets game.  He does a cheesesteak in style. In keeping with tradition, I crafted…

  2. If You Build an Online Petition, He Will Come

    Dec 15, 2006, 11:27 AM EDT

    When news of the Phillies being prepared to sell the team surfaced last week, we jokingly asked if Mark Cuban had been spotted in Philadelphia lately.  Now some faithful fan decided to resort to the always successful online petition to persuade Mark Cuban to come save Philadelphia by purchasing the Phillies. It looks like they’re off…

  3. Charles Barkley on SNL

    Dec 15, 2006, 9:30 AM EDT

    Okay, so it’s a sketch featuring a fake Sir Charles and it’s not particularly funny but news has been slow lately.  (This digital short actually made me chuckle.  See also Dane Cook.)

  4. Shawn Andrews Was Hungry

    Dec 15, 2006, 1:04 AM EDT

    Personally, I thought he was joking in his post game interview when he mentioned that he didn’t want the game to go into overtime because "the way [he] ate this weekend [he] was so bloated."  It sounded as though none of the reporters found the line all that funny.  Maybe he really did eat a…

  5. Temple Has More Wins Than Notre Dame.

    Dec 14, 2006, 8:23 PM EDT

    Just thought I’d point that out for all you Irish fans out there. Temple 24, Akron 20.

  6. Eagles Continue Post Bye Week Dominance

    Dec 14, 2006, 3:54 PM EDT

    Andy Reid’s Eagles moved to an impressive 9-0 in games following the bye week.  Unfortunately for the Birds, there is only one bye week a year.  A win is a win is a win but a squeaker against the lowly Jets certainly does not breed confidence. At times the offense looked really good with Brian…

  7. Notre Dame All Set to Get Asses Handed to Them This Saturday

    Dec 12, 2006, 2:33 PM EDT

    We thought this would be an enjoyable way to send you off into your weekend. Pretty much my entire life, save a few minutes while watching Rudy for the first time, I’ve hated Notre Dame.  First, as a young Penn State fan growing up and later as I embarked on my yellow tee shirt wearing…

  8. Arizona Fans Are Savages

    Dec 12, 2006, 10:32 AM EDT

    Not sure if you saw it, but Arizona Diamonback fans — apparently they do exist — are the worst fans in all of sports.  They threw bottles onto the field!??!  That just goes to show that all those stories you hear about D-Back fans being obnoxious drunks who have no class are entirely true. What’s…

  9. Adios, Barajas and Nunez

    Dec 12, 2006, 7:54 AM EDT

    Todd Zolecki reported yesterday that the Phillies would not be picking up the options on "catcher" Rod Barajas and 3B Abraham Nunez. I won’t lie, I thought Barajas was a decent signing last year, but he turned out to be awful, losing the starting job and eventually the backup work in embarrassing fashion. We’ve known…

  10. Is the Brian Dawkins We Knew Finished?

    Dec 11, 2006, 3:26 PM EDT

    Coming into this season, Eagles fans kind of all expected B-Dawk to strap in and put in one of his signature beastly seasons we’ve come to know him for.  Sure, he was approaching the twilight of his career, but he had another good season or two in him.  Right? Turns out he likely won’t be…

  11. Know Your Target Audience and Make Them Feel Happy

    Dec 11, 2006, 12:45 PM EDT

    We mentioned back in January that Flyers fans were voted the most intimidating in the sport by NHL players.  Now the Flyers are using the poll as part of their marketing strategy.  Brilliant. Dear Philadelphia Flyers Marketing Department, Please send all payments via PayPal to If the Flyers keep winning games by the score…
