  1. Breaking: Sixers Blockbuster Trade

    Feb 1, 2006, 12:07 PM EDT

    Okay, the post title is a lie.  The Sixers traded the biggest off-season acquisition Steven Hunter to the New Orleans Hornets for two second round draft picks.  Billy King, true man of genius. I have a theory on Billy King, if he was a nerdy white guy, Ed Wadesque if you will, there would be…

  2. He’s No Construction Worker

    Feb 1, 2006, 11:21 AM EDT

    Last year the Eagles had the Cinderella story of Jeff Thomason going from construction work one week to playing in the Superbowl the next.  This year the Steelers have a similar situation, except the Steeler, somewhat ironically, works at the global futures desk in Manhattan for Lehman Brother’s.  Most people don’t even know what a…

  3. A Year Ago This Week

    Feb 1, 2006, 10:21 AM EDT

    What a difference a year makes.  Take a look through the 700 Level archives and reminisce about what it was like to be on top, for a few weeks anyway.

  4. Sir Charles on Imus

    Jan 31, 2006, 9:30 AM EDT

    Charles Barkley was on 660 WFAN this morning chatting it up with Don Imus about racism, his book, and the lackluster NBA.  Charles has a best selling book which just went to paperback titled Who’s Afraid of a Large Black Man which he had some help from PTI’s Michael Wilbon in writing.  The book apparently…

  5. Winter X Games Drunk

    Jan 31, 2006, 4:00 AM EDT

    Over at Deadspin and Noobsports, Bode Miller and his recent comments about skiing while drunk is the hot topic.  Noobsports is conducting a very scientific experiment into the effects of skiing while intoxicated.  While Noobsports is planning a very scientific look into the new phenomenon, I just happened to have gone skiing this past weekend…

  7. Mike Bartrum Gets Free Vacation

    Jan 30, 2006, 1:54 PM EDT

    Mike Bartrum is not a Pro Bowl tight end but he sure can flick those wrists to get a nice spiral on the ball under his legs.  His skills as a long snapper have earned him a trip to be the third member of the Eagles going to the Pro Bowl.  Trotter was the only…

  9. Pujols Upset He Didn’t Get More Hardware

    Jan 30, 2006, 9:29 AM EDT

    Albert Pujols is a world champion but that doesn’t seem to be good enough for him.  He feels that the MVP of the league should play on a team who makes the playoffs.  While his argument isn’t completely off base and many media types would agree, Pujols making his thoughts public make him look like…

  10. We Talkin’ Bout After Practice

    Jan 30, 2006, 9:12 AM EDT

    The Sixers had a meet-and-greet last night at Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes.  Allen Iverson decided he didn’t want to go to the mandatory team function and will be fined by the team.  He also left practice early and there was some sort of confrontation with Mo Cheeks. A source said Iverson was upset when he…

  11. Superbowl XL & Monday Extras

    Jan 30, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    I’ve always had a penchant for clown shoes, so an article in yesterday’s New York Times gave me another reason to cheer for Seatle in the big game: When he was playing at Boston College, and Coach Dan Henning informed him that he would not be the starting quarterback, Hasselbeck famously told Henning, "You should…
