    USA Today wants us to talk about Reggie Brown, to motivate him, and the way the Eagles receivers looked last season I must oblige: Fret over his inexperience. Whine about the Philadelphia Eagles’ paucity of go-to receivers. Protest their failure — or reluctance — to pursue a marquee receiver. Make the obvious comparison. Brown couldn’t…

  2. Dear Charlie, Please Don’t Bat Howard 7th

    Apr 23, 2006, 6:58 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard hit two blasts to help the Phillies beat the Marlins on Sunday to split the series.  One of Howard’s bombs was 496 feet, the longest home run ever hit in the short history of Citizens Bank Park.

  3. Sal’s Pals More Entertaining Than Phillies

    Apr 22, 2006, 12:31 AM EDT

    Sal Fasano is Italian, looks like a trash man, has a Fu Manchu and therefore will be beloved by Philadelphia more than Bobby Abreu, one of the best hitters in baseball, ever will. Sal loves his new found glory as the man with a mustache: “It pumped me up,” Fasano said Monday before the Phillies…

  4. Martorano to Join Gargano on the Radio

    Apr 21, 2006, 1:58 PM EDT

    Oh. Steve Martorano will start Tuesday on sports-talk WIP-AM (610) with his former midday partner, Anthony Gargano. The station had a spot to fill since the March 20 firing of Mike Missanelli, two days after an altercation with a producer over a technical snafu on a remote broadcast. Hey Steve, we don’t really want…

  5. I Can’t Beat The Daily News

    Only in Philadelphia could fan appreciation night be completely butchered.  If you haven’t heard by now, Iverson and Webber did not play last night and didn’t show up for the game until minutes before tip off.  I wrote yesterday that this could potentially be Iverson’s final game in Philly sporting a Sixers jersey but that…

  7. The End of Allen in Philly

    Apr 18, 2006, 9:55 AM EDT

    Tonight is the last game the Sixers will play this year in South Philly.  Whether it will be A.I.’s final performance at the Wachovia Center wearing a Sixer’s jersey remains to be seen.  The truth of the matter is that if Allen Iverson is to ever get traded this would be the off season in…

    From Peter King’s column today: 5. The T.O. deal is not as poisonous as most people think. A week doesn’t go by when we don’t talk about him. But if LeCharles Bentley is pulling down $12.5 million this year and the Edge $12.25 million, I’d say Owens may morph into the bargain of all bargains…

    -The Bulls helped the Sixers this weekend and ended all hopes of the Sixers making the playoffs.  The Sixers will now have some balls in the lottery.  My bet, 14th overall. -Brett Myers owns Colorado. [Inqy]  The Phils right the ship a bit and head back to South Philly to start a home stand on…

  10. The Orange and The Black

    Apr 15, 2006, 3:45 PM EDT

    The Flyers are currently up 4-1 going into the third against the Rangers, looking to gain some momentum heading into the playoffs. That brings me to the question of the new song titled The Orange and the Black by the band The Boils.  According to        The song "The Orange & The…
