  1. Conlin and Fitzpatrick Share the Same Rusty Typewriter

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:52 PM EDT

    Apparently, Bill Conlin doesn’t like the Internet either.  I don’t know what it is with these crunchy old Inquirer/Daily News guys.  On Ryan Howard, who he painfuly dubs "the Rhynamiter:" But whenever an athlete is anointed with this level of acclaim, the Mickey Mice are never far behind. The Drive-By Media, as Rush Limbaugh likes…

  2. Eagles Fanhouse Updates

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:44 PM EDT

    Two of the featured bloggers over at the Fanhouse do a point/counterpoint feature.  Today they argue whether the Eagles need to be more of a running team or if they can win it in the air. MJD Point: The Eagles Are Going to Need to Run the Ball MDS Counterpoint: Philly’s Point Will Come from…

    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,…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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…
