    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…

    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…

    Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer has a nice look at some of the details from the next chapter in the Rocky saga: Here’s how it goes: The long-suffering Adrian – the girl Rocky met in the Kensington pet shop in the original – is dead. Rocky owns a restaurant in South Philadelphia. He’s pals with Adrian’s brother…

    Christmas came early on North Broad Street last night and it was Frantastic! Wow, that felt good saying.  Dionte Christmas scored a career high 27 points to lead the Temple Owls on to their first win under head coach Fran Dunphy.

  7. What Will We Do Without Stephen A.?

    Jan 29, 2006, 1:03 PM EDT

    So it looks like the Inquirer and Daily News employees are going on strike Thursday night and launching their own competing website to The real question we should all be concerned about: what will we do without our usual dose of Stephen A. Smith?  Although it looks like he hasn’t put out a column…

  8. The Young Answer

    Jan 29, 2006, 9:16 AM EDT

    Found this exceprt from Larry Platt’s book Only the Strong Survive about Allen Iverson. In the locker room, Iverson’s teammate and close friend Xavier Gunn called a twenty-minute team meeting. "Allen, you’re selfish," he said. Iverson leaped to his feet. "How can I be selfish when I average ten assists a game?" "Not the basketball…

  9. It’s Not Always About the Money

    Jan 29, 2006, 12:02 AM EDT

    Randy Wolf reportedly got offered more money by both the Phillies and Arizona, but Wolf decided to follow his dream and put on Dodger blue: "I think every kid grows up wanting to play for the team he watched," Wolf said. "I grew up in the LA area and have many fond memories of going…

  10. End of the Wolf Pack

    Jan 28, 2006, 3:23 PM EDT

    With Adam Eaton returning to the Phils, Randy Wolf moved on to the Dodgers.  The Wolf Pack is no more.  Randy was a fan favorite not too long ago, but with all the time he missed the Wolf Pack lost much of its luster.  Let’s all hope that the right field nose bleed faithful don’t…

  12. A.I. drops 45 in Sixers Loss

    Jan 28, 2006, 9:32 AM EDT

    Iverson had another forty point effort last night against the Heat putting up 45 points in a loss to Dwayne Wade’s squad.  Iverson’s flurry of scoring hasn’t resulted in much in terms of wins and the Sixers have slowed down considerably after their fast start.  Wade led Miami with 33, 13, and 7. While the…
