  1. Monday Extras: Play Ball! Except for Thomas

    Apr 3, 2006, 12:42 AM EDT

    Thomas Perez was released by the Phillies.  Man, I’m kind of sad.  I think this is a wise baseball decision, but this is like cutting the Phanatic to bring in a younger more athletic mascot or something.  []: "I’m 32 years old, and know I can help another team," Perez said. "I did my best…

    This is the kind of stuff that makes blogs so great.  ESPN may be the world wide leader, but there you won’t find remixes of RBI baseball’s theme music, a Springsteen rockabilly version of "Take me Out to the Ball Game", the music from The Natural, and Field of Dreams. -Baseball Season Will Be Starting…

  6. What is the World Coming to?

    Mar 31, 2006, 12:08 PM EDT

    The NFL is cracking down on having fun.  Why?  It doesn’t make any sense at all to me.  If you think of exciting players in the NFL who do you think of?  Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson have to be at the very top of your list.  They add flavor to the game. I don’t…

  10. Jimmy Rollins in USA Today

    Mar 30, 2006, 12:34 PM EDT

    I like the idea of J-Rolls father taking him to horrible fields to play ball: Credit his father with his brilliant defensive ability. "When I was a kid, we’d get up early and my dad would take me out to practice," Rollins says. "We’d go to the roughest fields because it was a challenge. ……

  11. Sixers Close to Having Balls

    Mar 29, 2006, 10:23 PM EDT

    As expected, the Sixers lost their 10th game in 12 tries Wednesday night.  The Sixers are holding on to the 8th playoff spot in the East by a thread and with any luck they will allow the Chicago Bulls to pass them.  The 8th seed in the East is a sacrificial lamb.  Not only do…

  12. No More Geno’s Whiz Wit at CBP

    Mar 29, 2006, 10:19 AM EDT

    Sure, we all love a good Geno’s whiz wit, but when you are at a baseball game you eat hot dogs.  Geno’s told the Phillies to go fly a kite.  The Phillies will replace the Geno’s spot with Rick’s Steaks which resides in the Reading Terminal, a disciple of Pat’s.  I can’t vouch for Rick’s…
