  1. Antero Niittymaki Loves Doughnuts

    Feb 24, 2006, 6:10 PM EDT

    I’m not sure how many of you have been paying much attention to how the Fins have been doing in the Olympics, but Flyer goalie Antero Niitymaki has been playing lights out.  He shut down the Big Red Machine today and helped Finland advance to the gold medal game.  Niity has performed extremely well in…

  2. Sasha Cohen Has Nothing On Lindsay Lohan

    Feb 24, 2006, 2:10 PM EDT

    Remember Shaun White, the Flying Tomato?  He won the gold medal with a sick run in Torino a few weeks ago.  He said he hoped the gold medal would help him pick up chicks and apparently it is working.  Originally he wanted a piece of Sasha Cohen, but she couldn’t even bring home the gold,…

  3. Will Terrell Owens Steal Christmas?

    Feb 24, 2006, 5:15 AM EDT

    Somehow, I don’t see Terrell Owens’ heart inflating to three times its normal size — his ego on the other hand, perhaps. It’s the rematch we’ve all been waiting for.  If you told Eagles fans they had a chance to win the division after Donovan McNabb went down, we would have thought you were a…

    We thought we’d take a look back at some of the Philly sports highlights from 2006 as well as some of our favorite posts from The 700 Level.  I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading. January 09 – You can buy options on Super Bowl tickets.10 – The 700 Level was the featured blog…

  6. Must Read Simmons

    Feb 23, 2006, 4:15 PM EDT

    Happy Holiday’s, Billy King: 3. If the Sixers’ ultimate goal was to swap Iverson for young players, draft picks and cap space, why not deal with Boston then? Considering how badly Boston wanted Iverson, they would have agreed to any trade not involving Pierce or Jefferson (even a trade with multiple first rounders) … but…

  7. Drexel Impressive Over Temple

    Feb 23, 2006, 2:40 PM EDT

    At St. Joseph’s. At Villanova. At No. 23 Syracuse. And, last night, at Temple. The Dragons just keep winning the kinds of games they used to lose. "This," coach Bruiser Flint said, "ain’t the Drexel of old." Drexel hoops continued their impressive December last night at the Liacouras Center on Temple’s campus.  The dragons beat…

  8. Iverson in Baby Blue

    Feb 23, 2006, 12:00 PM EDT

    ESPN Images It’s pretty surreal seeing Iverson wearing anything but a Sixers jersey.  We all knew it was coming, but actually seeing it is still a little shocking. I didn’t see the game, but A.I. dropped 22 and 10 in a losing effort. >>Video highlights and recap of the game [ESPN] >>Sports Illustrated has a…

  9. Ed Snider is a Rat

    Feb 23, 2006, 10:52 AM EDT

    I suggest putting on the mid day show today and listening to Mikey Miss and the Cuz absolutely destroy Ed Snider.  Last night on Glen Macnow’s show, Ed threatened to move the Sixers to a city that loves the game of basketball.  I could go on and on about Ed Snider and Billy King being…

  10. Pedro Gomez Needs A New Assignment

    Feb 23, 2006, 5:54 AM EDT

    I don’t understand the ESPN fascination with Barry Bonds.  ESPN has assigned him his very own analyst to watch and report on every single detail of what Barry Bonds is doing.  Pedro’s most recent report on Barry went something like this: Barry Bonds arrived at camp here at Scottsdale Stadium at approximately 7:52 am this…

  11. Chase Utley’s Fiancee

    Feb 22, 2006, 11:59 AM EDT had an interview with Chase Utley the other day, talking about his off season routine, in which it mentioned his fiancee Jen.  This got me to wondering who Chase is going to tie the knot with.  After a little research, it turns out Chase is engaged to fellow UCLA alum Jennifer Cooper. (Far right,…

  12. Mardy Collins: That’s just how we do

    Feb 22, 2006, 10:48 AM EDT

    TrueHoop really is the best basketball resource on the web.  Regarding Mardy Collins: "That’s just the way I was brought up, with Coach Chaney, we don’t just give guys layups. It’s anybody in basketball, it’s not like I’m trying to intentionally hurt a guy. That’s just something I did growing up. In Philadelphia, that’s how…
