  1. Shaun White Gold Medal Run

    Feb 13, 2006, 2:28 AM EDT

    I’m in the Olympic spirit and was happy to see Shaun White bring home the gold in Men’s Half Pipe.  It would have been nice to see an American sweep though.  Perhaps the most annoying thing about the Olympics is already knowing who won by the time the video hits television.  You can’t visit ESPN.com…

  2. NBA No-Trade Clause: Only Kobe

    Feb 13, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Marc Stein answers the question many, myself included, have been wondering. Iverson doesn’t possess the ultimate hammer. NBA front-office sources confirmed Tuesday that his contract does not contain a no-trade clause. In fact, as far as I know, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant is the only NBA player who has one. So if Iverson did in…

  3. AI: Not Charlotte?!?

    Feb 12, 2006, 9:05 PM EDT

    Iverson’s like "CHARLOTTE?!?!  They have a team???  Holy shit.  Wait!  Forget it!  I’ll stay!  I’ll stay.  Jesus.  Forget I said anything." Let’s check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer’s article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte.  A poster "Reality" weighs in: You people all need to get a grip. It’s the…

  4. Rocky @ Art Museum Yesterday

    Feb 12, 2006, 2:35 PM EDT

    From Yahoo news: "A man identified as Sylvester Stallone, left, prepares to film a scene for the movie ‘Rocky Balboa,’ during a snow storm, on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Saturday, Feb. 11, 2006, in Philadelphia. (AP Photo/Joseph Kaczmarek)" My understanding is that on Friday, fans were filmed running up the steps…

  5. Philly Mag: Requiem for a Heavyweight

    Feb 12, 2006, 9:38 AM EDT

    Rocky Balboa, the movie, comes to theaters on December 22nd.  Philadelphia Magazine’s cover story this month tells the story of how Sylvester Stallone defined Rocky and, in turn, how Rocky defined Stallone.  It’s a solid read. At times you’ll be nodding in agreement and at parts you’ll disagree completely, but it takes a look at…

  6. Swoop Santa vs. Phanta Claus!

    Fanhouse: You Missed Your Chance to Meet Swoop Santavs.Phanta Claus Comes Early I know, nobody gives a rats’ ass about mascots but me.  Whatever.  Get your own blog.

  7. Iverson’s Locker Cleaned Out

    Feb 11, 2006, 10:15 PM EDT

    610 WIP just reported that Iverson’s locker has been cleaned out and his name plate removed. No deal has been made as of the buzzer of the Sixers/Blazers game.  The Sixers lost their 8th straight.  I caught the end of it.  Iggy missed a desperation three that would have won it.  I kept waiting for…

  8. WATN: Kenny Lofton & Marlon Byrd

    Feb 11, 2006, 9:31 PM EDT

    Former Phillies Kenny Lofton and Marlon Byrd will be reunited in the Texas Rangers outfield.  My favorite part of the Forbes story on Lofton: Over 16 major league seasons with Houston, Cleveland, Atlanta, the Chicago White Sox, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, the Chicago Cubs, the New York Yankees, Philadelphia and the Dodgers, Lofton has a .299…

  9. Don’t Fire Andy Reid

    Feb 11, 2006, 10:11 AM EDT

    There has been some confussion among readers of The 700 Level about my feelings on Andy Reid.  Some felt the Andy Reid image and associated "Fire Andy Reid" message was my own doing.  This is not the case.  The image you see to the right was an advertisement placed here through BlogAds.  We don’t agree…

  10. Iverson & Cheeks Final Blow Caught on Tape?

    Feb 11, 2006, 9:20 AM EDT

    NBC10, in a report from Friday, may have caught A.I.’s final interaction with Mo Cheeks at practice on Friday.  Don’t get your hopes up for much in this video, but it’s interesting none the less.

  11. If Only Iverson Was a Bowler

    Feb 11, 2006, 12:12 AM EDT

    This all started because A.I. skipped the team bowling event for the elite season ticket holders last week.  This could have been the incident that broke the camel’s back. Let’s take a quick look at Stephen A. Smith’s column yesterday on Iverson titled Only one thing can restore Iverson’s tarnished image — winning a championship. …

  12. Phanta Claus Comes Early

    Feb 10, 2006, 6:14 PM EDT

    I almost went down to the second annual Phillies holiday sale for the sole reason I wanted to see my buddy Sid dressed up as Santa next to the Phanta Claus.  It never happened.  But you can see more pictures of little kiddies with Phanta Claus in the Phillies.com photo gallery. Phillies fans get early…
