  1. 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…

    Feb 12, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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. …

  8. 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 photo gallery. Phillies fans get early…

  9. Iverson Roundup: Hope for Oden

    Feb 10, 2006, 1:17 PM EDT

    The Fanhouse points us to an article in the Charlotte Observer which says the Bobcats are thinking of putting in a bid for Iverson: "We made some inquiries if it was real," coach-general manager Bernie Bickerstaff told the Observer on Saturday. "Michael (Jordan) and I plan to sit down and chat" about whether to make…

  10. 2006 Torino Olympics Tonight

    Feb 10, 2006, 11:53 AM EDT

    Ready for The Flying Tomato?  That’s what they are calling Shaun White at NBC.  Is this one of the worst sporting nicknames of all time?  I think I would rather be called Carrot Top II or something.  Damn. You don’t need a program to identify the teenage sensation from sunny Southern California. Just look for…

  11. Chris Webber & Tyra Banks

    Feb 10, 2006, 10:21 AM EDT

    One of the only reasons I ever venture to is their sometimes great photo galleries.  Today they have some of the top celebrity/athlete breakups of all time.  It’s a bit surprising that Alyssa Milano only made the list twice?!?  Anyway, I bet if Tyra Banks were still dating CWebb and she got all Spike…
