    Dec 10, 2006, 2:16 PM EDT

    He even said so himself!  Look: I’m not blog efficient, but it sounds like people can be very creative there. That has nothing to do with me. I just wanted to make sure people understood that." Hey thanks, Andy.  We bloggers are creative types.  And for the record, it was that "Mainstream Blogger" over at…

    ESPN.com reports that the Phillies and Charlie Manuel have agreed to a 2-year extension with a club option for a third.

  5. TTT: Redskins Fans!

    Dec 9, 2006, 10:45 AM EDT

    Hey look! This week’s installment of Trash Talk Tuesday means another feature that didn’t die after one week! I don’t have anything against the Mottram brothers in particular, I’m sure they’re fine young gentlemen, except of course the fact that they have an unhealthy hatred for Philadelphia fans.  They once called Philly fans "insufferable douchebags."…

  6. Allen Iverson is a Smart Man

    Dec 9, 2006, 4:48 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson now feels at home in Denver.  Good for the little man.  He’s also not as stupid as LeBron James when it comes to baseball rooting interests. In case you’re wondering, he was rooting for the Rockies last night against the Phillies, in part because one of his neighbors in his condo is Colorado…

  7. Flyers Practice Trustfalls and Hand Drums

    Dec 8, 2006, 5:44 PM EDT

    For years, the Flyers have been believers in team-building retreats, spending a little time each season in outdoorsy places or, recently, West Point and the Naval Academy. This year the team got its Dunder-Mifflin on in British Columbia, where apparently it rained all day while they were outside. I can’t wait to see whose name…

    That’s the slogan the 76ers seem to be going with this season.  Well then, people, let my inspiration flow! I realize The 700 Level tends to ride the wave of whatever the hot topic of the day is in Philly sports and that’s fine with me.  I think we’d all rather talk about Shane Victorino…

  11. Bye Weeks: The NFL’s Version of the Frank S. Farley Plaza

    Dec 7, 2006, 9:50 PM EDT

    Philadelphia sports fans can be glad of one thing this weekend: the Eagles didn’t lose. After the Phillies clinched the East last Sunday, the Eagles crapped on our imaginary parade by dropping another division game in pathetic fashion. This week, the Phillies returned the favor and let the Birds off the hook, barely showing up…
