  1. Brian Westbrook is Underrated

    Mar 1, 2006, 5:34 PM EDT

    I felt the need to vent a little bit over at the Fanhouse about how Brian Westbrook doesn’t always get the credit he deserves as one the games truly elite players. Fanhouse: Brian Westbrook is Underrated

  2. Must. Stuff. Ballot.

    Mar 1, 2006, 2:50 PM EDT

    ESPN’s Page 2 is having a competition of sorts to vote for the best mascot in sports.  They broke it down into strange categories and are calling the Phillie Phanatic a cartoon.  I don’t know if the big green guy would take to that real nicely. So anyway, go vote for Philly’s finest.

  3. 10 Years Ago Today

    Mar 1, 2006, 2:28 PM EDT

    I’m a Philly sports nut, but if there’s anything I was ever more passionate about it was music.  I think it’s safe to say I was a Phish head at multiple points in my life — perhaps even ’til this day. It all started 10 years ago today at the Spectrum.  It was one of…

  4. Quite Frankly, Stephen A. Wants You

    Mar 1, 2006, 5:09 AM EDT

    I recently got an email from representatives at ESPN2 inviting me to appear on Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith to chat with Phillies great Mike Schmidt.  No. Wait.  They wanted to give me an exclusive invite only available to high profile sports bloggers to sit in on a viewing.  No. Wait.  They wanted to…

  5. WATN: Donald Brashear

    Feb 28, 2006, 3:44 PM EDT

    It was a sad day in Flyers history when Donald Brashear was released last off-season, but it almost seemed necessary at the time. The Flyers lost in the playoffs last season because they were still too big, slow, and prone to penalties; the league had gone to the burners, with obstruction calls handed out like…

  6. Center Court with Chris Webber

    Feb 28, 2006, 1:19 PM EDT

    Chris Webber is loved in Sacramento where he played seven years of all star quality ball.  In Philly, fans treat him like the overpaid player he has become.  The Sixers got handled last night in Sacramento but CWebb received nice ovations from the crowd despite only scoring four points.  Perhaps he spent to much time…

  7. Iverson Shafted

    Feb 28, 2006, 10:52 AM EDT

    A pretty great headline on the back of the Daily News today.  It looks like Allen Iverson got the shaft from playing in the 2008 Olympics for team USA.  I can’t say I am surprised, but I am a little disappointed.  It is still unclear as to why Iverson wasn’t given the nod, but it…

  8. Support Villanova: Buy or Sell?

    Feb 28, 2006, 6:45 AM EDT

    When Jameer Nelson, Delonte West, and Phil Martelli lead St. Joes into the NCAA tournament a few years back as a number one seed it seemed to me that all of Philadelphia was pulling for them.  This year, Villanova, baring a collapse in the Big East Tournament, will be a number one seed as well,…

  9. Jeff Garcia Mania?

    Feb 28, 2006, 2:14 AM EDT

    Jeff Garcia has taken this Eagles team from wondering what kind of draft pick they could get to the brink of a division title with a very good chance of making a Super Bowl run to boot.  There is no arguing he has performed better than all of our expectations.  His acuracy has been something…

  10. Tony Lucadello: may gave been ‘the greatest scout ever’

    Feb 27, 2006, 12:52 PM EDT

    If you’re too young to really remember Mike Schmidt’s 500th home run, chances are you aren’t familiar with Tony Lucadello.  ESPN says Tony Lucadello may have been the greatest baseball scout ever.  His story is a look back at the baseball of old, a heart warming tale with a sad ending. It started when his…

  11. Monday Extras

    Feb 27, 2006, 10:12 AM EDT

    Andy Reid on McNabb from Les Bowen’s Inky piece Saturday: "Everything’s magnified a little bit at the Super Bowl," Reid said. "I think he just got some things off his chest. He’s very positive right now and ready to roll… Get it out and move on. That’s where he’s at now. I talked to him…

  12. Not Yours, Mine

    Feb 27, 2006, 12:14 AM EDT

    You can now be friends with the700level.  Thanks to my good pal Ronnie Funtz (you may want to mute your speakers if you click on him) I am now on Myspace.  Feel free to do whatever it is those myspace people do to be my friend.  I don’t discriminate unless you are like the Dallas…
