  2. Fire Charlie, Hire Dutch

    Apr 11, 2006, 4:18 PM EDT

    It seems like the only logical move at this point.  The Phillies are 1-6 and Vincente Padilla has more wins than the entire Phillies teams.  Firing Charlie Manuel isn’t the only move which needs to be made.  The Phillies have to go BIG and by big I mean metaphysical in their next hiring.  They need…

  3. Fran Dunphy to Coach Temple

    Apr 10, 2006, 12:04 PM EDT

    Former Penn basketball coach Fran Dunphy will be taking over what John Chaney left behind as Temple’s head basketball coach.  It is an interesting twist to the landscape of the Big Five.  Dunphy turned Penn into an Ivy League powerhouse and seems like a great choice to work the bench in North Philly. Penn and…

    Apr 10, 2006, 10:03 AM EDT

    It was made known locally a few  weeks ago that Darren Daulton had seemingly lost a few of his marbles but now he has taken his metaphysics nationally, appearing on SportsCenter last night and will be making an appearance on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.  From USA Today: Sad: Darren Daulton, in a new…

  6. Ryan Howard Has a Big Stick

    Apr 8, 2006, 3:48 PM EDT

    35 inches is a lot of wood: "Look at this," he says. "This thing’s 35 inches, 34½ ounces. But look how small it looks in his hands. We say, ‘Is it really that big? Or is it just that big when we pick it up?’ This thing is like a tree. But it’s like a…

    Apr 8, 2006, 10:39 AM EDT

    "You know what," manager Charlie Manuel said at the end of another eulogy, "when you get right down to it, right now, I’d say the first four days out we kind of stink. That’s the bottom line. We’ve got to get better." From today’s Inqy

    Terrell Owens always claims he is misunderstood.  People judge him before getting to understand the real T.O.  Charlotte Observer: But before judging the 32-year-old Owens, it helps to understand him. To do that, you must travel 67 miles down Route 280 East from Birmingham, past Harpersville, Childersburg and Sylacauga into Alexander City – Alex City…

    Friday Random Video time.  I spent Wednesday night in New York City watching David Gilmour at Radio City Music Hall.  I saw David Gilmour perform Shine On You Crazy Diamond live and in person.  It was one of the coolest musical performances I’ve ever seen.  It was one of those things you never though you…
