  1. Report: Iverson Taps Out

    Feb 8, 2006, 9:28 AM EDT

    Citing two NBA GMs and the agents for a pair of 76ers, Peter Vecsey of the New York Post has reported that Allen Iverson has asked to be traded. According to the Post article, Iverson met with Billy King on Tuesday and demanded to be moved. Vecsey supports the agents’ story with statements from two…

  2. Operation Slap Shot

    Feb 7, 2006, 6:11 PM EDT

    I used to love Rick Tocchet, basically just cause his name was Rick Tocchet.  Supposedly the whole ring has ties to Joey "Skinny Joey" Merlino, who was seen years ago sitting in Eric Lindross’ seats.  Throw in Wayne Gretsky’s wife for good measure and you have yourself one hell of a gambling scandal.  ESPN: New…

    Ey, yo, ey! Part two of the video here.

  4. The Sixers: Not Good

    Feb 7, 2006, 10:01 AM EDT

    Wow, 19 shots in a row: [NYT] The Houston Rockets held the Philadelphia 76ers without a field goal for more than 15 minutes in the second half of the Rockets’ 87-81 victory last night. Only free throws kept the 76ers in the game after an incredible stretch of offensive ineptness. They did not score from…

  5. Freddie Garcia Deal Done

    Feb 7, 2006, 12:58 AM EDT

    Phillies get starting pitcher Freddie Garcia and give up Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez.  I like it.  Phillies fans have heard too much about the potential of some of their young arms.  I’m glad we no longer have to worry about when Gavin Floyd is going to turn into a good major leaguer.  We can…

  6. Tom O’Brien to NC State

    Feb 7, 2006, 12:24 AM EDT

    Not a huge surprise really.  Tom O’Brien has done a ton for the Boston College football program.  He couldn’t quite get them over the hump into the first tier schools.  He is leaving BC for NC State.  Let’s just hope BC can replace him with a high caliber guy who can get them over the…

  7. I still think the Terrible Towel is Terrible

    Feb 6, 2006, 11:38 PM EDT

    This video would be cool if it featured the Eagles and Philadelphia fans on Broad Street and also if the Eagles didn’t tremendously suck this past year, and, perhaps, if T.O. and Donovan were best friends and going to lead us to a Superbowl in Miami and also if T.O. wasn’t so mental and also…

  8. What Happened to Scott Graham?

    Feb 6, 2006, 8:38 PM EDT

    Harry the K is back in the booth with a three year deal.  Former Phillie Gary Matthews will be joining the crew as well.  What I, and a number of my readers, found interesting was the fact that Scott Graham will not be back.  I’d say my opinion of Scott Graham in the Phillies booth…

  9. Rocky Collector’s Edition DVD

    Feb 6, 2006, 2:56 PM EDT

    Rocky hype is maxed out lately with the final installment of the Rocky series being released before Christmas.  Stallone was at the Eagles game on Monday and to build up more buzz before Christmas, the original Rocky Collector’s Edition DVD has just been released. The Collector’s Edition DVD is a 2 DVD set with lots…

  10. Doctor Wax Battle Has Smokin Hot Boxes!

    Feb 6, 2006, 11:49 AM EDT

    We’ve neglected our Wednesday baseball card of the week feature lately but we haven’t abandoned it just yet.  A special baseball card post this week featuring Doctor Wax Battle. Doctor Wax Battle hasn’t exactly been a YouTube phenom, but we hope to propel him into Internet stardom.  The Doctor, as he likes to call himself,…

  11. Bloggers Top 40 Sports Figures 2006

    Feb 6, 2006, 9:10 AM EDT

    Jamie Mottram, of AOL’s Sports Bloggers Live and the organizer of the Fanhouse, polled some of the top sports bloggers to compile a list of the top 40 sports figures of 2006.  Only one person I voted for cracked the top 40 and he doesn’t even play his ball in Philly. Check out the full…

  12. Kevin Mench Has an Eagles Tattoo

    Feb 6, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    A hot stove anecdote from MLB.com: Talk circulated earlier in the day that the teams were closing on a trade that would have included Phillies veteran starter Jon Lieber and Brewers outfielders Kevin Mench or Geoff Jenkins and possibly relievers Derrick Turnbow or Jose Capellan. It just so happens that Kevin Mench is a native…
