  1. Kyle Ambrogi on ESPN

    A kid from Havertown makes it on to the front page of ESPN.com but for tragic reasons.  ESPN does a nice piece on Kyle Ambrogi.

  2. Pen Fumbles in Milwaukee

    May 18, 2006, 12:51 AM EDT

    I ended up making it to the game last night in Milwaukee.  Miller Park was a very nice place to watch a baseball game.  It’s unfortunate the outcome of the game didn’t turn out better.  Some observations: It’s pretty crazy listening to Bob Uecker actually call a real baseball game, something I’ve never really heard…

  4. McNabb Short Armed by Bush

    May 17, 2006, 3:17 PM EDT

    In a bit of a bizarre news story, Jeremy Bloom was at the White House because he was in the Olympics.  Bloom tried to give George W. a signed McNabb jersey, but somehow the jersey ended up in his wife’s hands.  I think it’s unfortunate neither of the Bush daughters were present because they surely…

  5. Rowand to Star in Rocky VI

    May 16, 2006, 12:29 AM EDT

    So he isn’t really starring in Rocky VI but it looks like he just went the distance with Apollo Creed.  Aaron Rowand spoke at a press conference on Monday about his now mythic catch last week. "People can call me stupid," he said. "It doesn’t bother me." Rowand’s catch served as an inspiration to Gavin…

  6. Howard is a Beast

    May 15, 2006, 1:41 AM EDT

    Friday it was Cole Hamels making his much anticipated debut to lead the Phillies to a win.  Saturday it was Jon Lieber flirting with perfection to shut out the Reds.  And Sunday it was Ryan Howard, after spending the night in the hospital, coming off the bench to hit two homers to lead the Phillies…

  7. Happy Mothers Day

    May 14, 2006, 11:07 AM EDT

    Major League players are stepping up to bat for breast cancer awareness today in games all across the country.  Louisville Slugger has created the special bats for the day.  After the games are played and the bats are used, you will be able to bid on the pink bats in an auction at MLB.com with…

  8. Al Gore on SNL last night

    Steroids are still funny.

  9. Aaron Rowand: Instant Fan Favorite

    May 11, 2006, 10:26 PM EDT

    Bobby Abreu he is not.  Slamming into the wall, breaking your nose, bleeding everywhere, making the catch, all with two outs and bases loaded will fortify your position in the hearts of Philadelphians.  Watch the sick catch here.  It’s like Harry knew he was going to catch it before he actually did. MLB.com: Phillies center…

  10. Iverson Deposed and Fuming

    May 11, 2006, 2:09 PM EDT

    Not exactly news, but A.I. was in D.C. giving 5 hours of deposition about a bar fight he was allegedly involved in.  NBC10 has perhaps one of the worst photo galleries I have ever seen on the Internet.  For those unfamiliar with Iverson’s predicament: "These men were basically beaten by Mr. Iverson’s security detail," attorney…

  11. Rocky Comes Home

    May 11, 2006, 11:17 AM EDT

    And all is right in the world. Now the statue may be making a comeback. The Fairmount Park Commission has approved moving the statue to a site near the foot of the Art Museum steps. That will also require city Art Commission approval. Source. But everyone isn’t happy about the move, for instance the Park…

  12. Philly Fans: Their Own Worst Enemy

    May 10, 2006, 3:54 PM EDT

    A good read from yesterday over at PhillyBurbs.com makes the argument that the longer Philadelphia’s championship-less streak continues, the harder it will be to ever overcome. Isn’t the misery self-perpetuating, then? My theory — and Baron was inclined to agree with it — is that the longer Philadelphia goes without a championship, the more difficult…
