  1. Von Hayes 1990 Upper Deck

    Image (1) von_hayes_tphq.jpg for post 488901

    A new feature here at The 700 Level: card of the week.  Who better to start us off than Von Hayes. Von Hayes, the infamous “5 for 1″ and the namesake of many a fantasy baseball team in the greater Philadelphia region. From Baseball Reference: Lanky, phlegmatic Von Hayes came up with the Cleveland Indians,…

  2. Not What the Phillies Needed

    Sep 19, 2006, 12:51 AM EDT

    You see that picture to the right?  That’s Pat Burrell roughly 4 nanoseconds before watching strike three zoom into the catchers mitt. It just so happened that I found myself with some great seats for Monday’s game against the Cubbies at Citizens Bank Park.  When I walked into the suite I noticed the label on…

  3. Kearse Done For Year

    Sep 18, 2006, 4:15 PM EDT

    As if yesterday’s pathetic performance could get any worse, the Eagles have lost Jevon Kearse for the season. Well that’s great.  In better news, Rod Hood could play this week and Lito Sheppard is doing better. E-A-G- ah shit.

  4. While Eagles Fans Stuffed Themselves With Wings & Beer

    Sep 18, 2006, 11:10 AM EDT

    11,000 people ran 13.1 miles through Philadelphia yesterday at the 29th annual Jefferson Hospital Philadelphia Distance Run: A record field of 11,119 participated in the 29th annual race, which featured 11 bands – from bagpipers to electric guitar players – spread throughout the course on a sunny 70-degree morning. Of the top 10 finishers, 7…

  5. Monday Extras: Seeing Red

    Sep 18, 2006, 10:00 AM EDT

    Sometimes a change from green to red is a good thing.  Red means go, remember? The Phillies step up and sweep the Astros.  I think it’s safe to say that this is not the same Phillies team from 2005.  Ryan Howard went yard to take his total to 57.  I can’t comment much further on…

  6. Dallas Ticket Prices Just Plummeted

    Sep 18, 2006, 12:19 AM EDT

    Those who paid insane prices for Dallas tickets are kicking themselves right now because T.O. broke his finger in Sunday nights game against Washington.  T.O. says he’ll be out 2-4 weeks.  The Cowboys play in Philadelphia in 3 weeks.  You might have to save your popcorn until Christmas.

  7. Writer Just Your Average Philly Columnist

    Sep 18, 2006, 12:13 AM EDT

    As some of you may have noticed, Inquirer columnist Frank Fitzpatrick wrote a piece on Friday titled "Morning Bytes: Blogger just your average Philly fan" which took a look at the live blogging I did for the Eagles season opener over at AOL’s Fanhouse.  I felt Mr. Fitzpatrick was rather off base with many of…

  9. Football Friday

    Sep 15, 2006, 5:00 AM EDT

    It’s not often you have a huge game in week 2.  You could argue this wasn’t a huge game, but the Eagles have a chance to make a statement in the NFC East.  Starting out 2-0 with the Giants and either the Cowboys or Skins starting off 0-2 would be a perfect start to the…

  10. Views From the Fanhouse

    Sep 14, 2006, 10:00 AM EDT

    Some of my recent Fanhouse postings as well as a look at some of the other quality stuff over there from other teams: Donovan on the Run is Dangerous When Will T.O. Blow? Don’t Stand Next to Bruce Perry in a Thunder Storm Andy Reid is The Man: ‘Watch This Elswhere in the Fanhouse: Troy…

  11. Phillies Have a Fightin’ Chance

    Sep 14, 2006, 4:40 AM EDT

    Wednesday was a big day for the Phils.  It started off ugly, with Randy Wolf getting off to a horrible start and only lasting 2 innings.  They came back from being down 5-0 early in the first game of yesterday’s double header in Atlanta.  Eude Brito replaced him and pitched 4 straight innings of no…

  12. Beware of Back Up Kicker

    Sep 13, 2006, 2:46 PM EDT

    One of my roommates in college was a back up kicker.  He went to practice everyday for four years and kicked behind some really good kickers.  I always wondered if he ever thought about stabbing the first string kicker in order to get a chance to get into a big game against Miami U or…
