  1. The Game That Nobody Watched

    Sep 29, 2006, 9:10 AM EDT

    Driving back up he AC Expressway around 1:30 AM last night I was shocked to hear the Phillies were still on the radio.  The game didn’t start until 11:32 PM and ended sometime after 2:00 AM.  I was probably one of the few people to hear/see it end.  Turns out the Phils were flat all…

  2. Phillies 1st Round Playoff Tickets Sold Out

    Sep 28, 2006, 9:39 AM EDT

    The Phillies sold tickets this morning to the divisional series games which would take place in Philadelphia on October 7th and perhaps October 8th in the event  of The Apocalypse that the Phillies do in fact make the playoffs. Tickets were gone in minutes and I did not get lucky.  So dear reader who got…

  3. Fabio in the Fourteenth

    Sep 28, 2006, 12:27 AM EDT

    Wow.  These Phillies sure know how to toy with our emotions.  The Phillies blew two save opportunities.  4 errors and shoddy bullpen work allowed the Nationals to come pitches away from ending the Phils season.  Jimmy Rollins came up with the game winner in the 14th.  Fabio Castro came in to finish it off in…

  4. Somebody’s a Winner

    Sep 27, 2006, 3:43 PM EDT

    The more I hear about the Terrell Owens apparent suicide attempt the less I believe it was actually a suicide attempt.  My reasoning includes the idea that if Terrell did in fact try to kill himself, they would not allow him to leave the hospital.  In such a situation, the person is usually kept under…

  5. Rich Kotite 1991 Pro Set

    Sep 27, 2006, 1:12 PM EDT

    A new feature here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Rich Kotite: In The Great Philadelphia Fan Book, Glen Macnow uses the phrase "bumbling idiot" to describe Rich Kotite. Perhaps the most famous of his screw ups was when he went all Milli Vanilli.  From Wiki: The beginning of the end…

  6. Report: Terrell Owens Attempted Suicide

    Sep 27, 2006, 9:41 AM EDT

    Wow.  Deadspin has a post up reporting that Terrell Owens’ trip to the hospital last night was a result of a suicide attempt. Maybe I should take that graphic over there on the right down.  As much as I’ve bashed T.O. for being an ego maniac, shit like this isn’t even funny. Update: More from…

  7. He Just Wanted You to Know the Phillies Stunk

    Sep 27, 2006, 12:24 AM EDT

    The Phillies, after failing to take a one game lead on Monday night against Houston, fell a full game back after their loss on Tuesday night to the Nationals.  Some may blame it on the blown call on Chase Utley’s home run which they called foul.  Others would just say the Phillies stink. The NYTimes…

  8. Is That a Puck or a Piece of Dust on My Monitor?

    Sep 26, 2006, 2:29 PM EDT

    Via the 27th email I received from the Flyers this week: The Flyers will air their preseason game vs. the Washington Capitals tonight, Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00 pm live on the internet since the game is not televised.  This broadcast, brought to fans by B2-Networks, marks the first time in National Hockey League history…

  10. 110 Year Old Ball Player from Philadelphia

    Sep 26, 2006, 9:46 AM EDT

    Silas Simmons, who is 110 years old, grew up in a rowhouse at 17th and Bainbridge.  His amazing story is featured in today’s NYTimes: Simmons, known as Si, was born on Oct. 14, 1895 — the same year as Babe Ruth and Rudolph Valentino, and before F. Scott Fitzgerald and Amelia Earhart. He played at…

  11. All Tied Up With 6 Left

    Sep 26, 2006, 12:42 AM EDT

    3 Phillies games in three days has worn me out, short post here to rest up for the playoff push. Tonight was a tough loss.  The pen seemed to let this one get away.  A win would have given us a fairly commanding lead over the Dodgers, but we are neck and neck with 6…

  12. Brian Westbrook is a Beast

    Sep 25, 2006, 9:15 AM EDT

    I highly reccomend going to check out the Inquirer’s photo album from yesterday’s victory over the Niners.  Click back and forth between photo 4 and photo 5.  It’s awesome. Brian Westbrook is one of the most underrated players in the NFL.  He does it all. -Video of Mike Paterson’s 98 yard fumble return & Westbrook’s…
