    Tom Gordon was just on the morning show talking with Angelo Cataldi and company.  Rhea Hughes put it well after the interview noting that he "said all the right things".  Gordon is extremely excited to be closing again and seems to have a very business like approach to the season.  He noted he isn’t concerned…

  2. WATN: Mardy Collins

    Feb 17, 2006, 12:08 AM EDT

    Temple alum Mardy Collins shows that being a student under John Chaney can really shape you for the rest of your life.  You may remember Temple’s "Goon Gate" from back in 2005 when Chaney sent in a goon to rough up the opponents but the roughing up turned into broken bones. In last night’s Denver…

    Somehow C-Webb doesn’t top the list. [Sports Illustrated] No word yet on A.I.’s destination, but the Sixers continue to improve their chances in the Greg Oden sweepstakes by losing their 10th straight last night. Penn State fans are not all right in the head. [Deadspin] Could we have a Terrell Owens and Terry Glen feud…

  5. Bitchers and Catchers

    Feb 16, 2006, 12:02 AM EDT

    While many Phillies have already arrived in Clearwater, Florida, today is the day pitchers and catcher are to report.  The Phillies wasted no time in irking some of their fans.  In an article from yesterday’s Inqy, Jim Salisbury talked to Brett Myers who isn’t a happy camper.  Tom Goodman put it best: It’s also worth…

  6. Johnny Weir & Vai Sikahema Go Shopping

    Feb 16, 2006, 12:02 AM EDT

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  The article is one of those, you have to read it all to get the full effect.  But in the first couple lines alone, Johnny Weir, gold medal hopeful in figure skating, calls Vai, former Philadelphia Eagle, "honey" and refers to himself as a "princess." He showed up…

  7. Nice Shot Kyle

    Feb 16, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Maybe I should criticize the Sixers everyday, then in the following days they will go out and beat the defending world champs.  The Sixers actually played really well last night and Kyle Korver hit a three with seconds left to put the game into overtime.  A.I. dropped 42 and flirted with a triple double. One…

  11. Fantasy A.I. Trade

    Feb 14, 2006, 11:07 PM EDT

    The Sixers get Randy Foye, Craig Smith, Rashad McCants, Dan Dickau, LaMarcus Aldridge, and then trade Dickau and Aldridge for a No. 1 draft pick.  All that for Allen Iverson.  ESPN’s trade machine says it can work!  What fantasy deal can you get to pass through the trade machine? Picture this line up in 3…

  12. Men are from Mars, Iverson is from Mercury, & Sheed is from Uranus

    Feb 14, 2006, 10:44 PM EDT

    You know, just the other day when I was out hunting quail under the twilight moon, I found myself gazing to the stars and wondering to my self, "Self, I think its about time someone compared the moons and planets of our solar system to the National Baskeball Association players."  Behold, not days later, ESPN…
