  1. Pedro v. Cole

    Aug 14, 2006, 2:12 PM EDT

    Every summer the Phillies seem to have a pivitol series that could seemingly make or break their hopes at a post season.  Coming into the four game home stand against the division leading Mets, the Phils are 4 games back of Cinci in the wild card hunt with another four teams in between.  With the…

  2. Gone, Gone, Gone

    Aug 14, 2006, 12:19 AM EDT

    In the sixth inning of Sunday’s loss to the wild card leading Reds, Brett Myers gave up back-to-back-to-back home runs.  You don’t see that very often.  Something else you don’t see very often is a major league ball player beating his wife in the middle of a public street.  Apparently the transcripts of 911 calls…

  3. Only 58 Days Away

    Aug 11, 2006, 11:18 AM EDT

    Great video for the first few minutes, then it kind of tapers off a bit.

  4. It was a Drive to Behold

    Aug 11, 2006, 9:18 AM EDT

    That’s how Dave Spadaro talks about the first drive of the Eagles preseason game last night against Cleveland.  Sure the Birds offense seemed to be clicking on the opening series and they walked away with 3 points, but this was the second game of the PREseason.  "A drive to behold?"  I could see if it…

  5. T.O. Thinks His House Outplayed its Contract

    Aug 10, 2006, 10:53 AM EDT

    T.O. thinks his house is worth more than what everyone else thinks it’s worth.  Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Luxury estates are apt to take longer to sell than lower-priced properties, but in the opinion of some knowledgeable realtors in the Moorestown area, the problem is that the house is somewhat overpriced. While Lacey would not…

  6. ESPN Invincible Challenge

    Aug 9, 2006, 10:57 AM EDT

    The release of perhaps the most anticipated movie in the history of Philadelphia, besides Rocky Balboa and EAT!, is only weeks away.  August 25th is the date you can get your Disney fill of Eagles football.  ESPN, which is part of the Disney/ABC empire, has launched into full Marky Mark promotion mode.  If you think…

  7. “The Real Rocky” Gets His Due

    Aug 8, 2006, 1:59 PM EDT

    From the AP Wire: Stallone has said that he had been working on a screenplay about a fighter when he watched Wepner, improbably, nearly go the distance with heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali in 1975. "What I saw was pretty extraordinary," Stallone said during a 2001 interview that became part of a "Rocky" anniversary DVD. "I…

  8. Apparently, Joey Lawrence Likes Philly Sports

    Aug 8, 2006, 12:28 PM EDT

    I recommend heading over to The Mighty MJD sports blog to see how this video has any sort of sporting relevance.

  9. Travis Pastrana X Games Double Backflip

    Aug 7, 2006, 3:19 PM EDT

    From the department of crazy shit: Travis Pastrana did a double back flip on a motorcycle at the X Games last week.  This was the first time anyone has ever done this in competition.  I’m a sucker for the X Games. -LA Times: Pastrana electrifies crowd with his theatrics Updated: Changed to better video

  10. Phils Find Way to Help Their Wild Card Chances

    Aug 7, 2006, 2:48 PM EDT

    The Phillies didn’t help their wild card chances over the weekend by losing 2 of 3 to the Mets, but they certainly helped their chances today by sending Ryan Franklin to the WC leading Reds.  Although knowing the Phillies track record, Franklin will likely go on to be a second half Cy Young candidate. The…

  11. WATN: FredEx

    Aug 7, 2006, 1:25 PM EDT

    My Monday morning just got a little brighter while reading Deadspin to find out that the Cowboys have got a secret weapon in camp: none other than Mr. 4th and 26 himself, Freddie Mitchell. If somehow we could only convince Jerry Jones to bring back Ricky Waters, we could have the perfect storm of outspoken…

  12. Football was Played Yesterday

    Aug 7, 2006, 12:10 AM EDT

    Timmy Chang! So it was mostly guys you hope you never have to see on the field this year for the Birds, going up against Raiders you likely never heard of.  But it was football.  With the Eagles schedule having 5 preseason games this year, the first teams saw extremely little action.  The action they…
