  3. One Hit After Another

    Jan 27, 2006, 11:00 AM EDT

    I can’t say I was alive during the original airing of any of these videos but after viewing them, the tune to Welcome Back, Kotter has been stuck in my head for hours.  This clip features Tim McCarver, then Phillies player who came out of retirement in order to say he played in four different…

  5. Wing Bowl 15: Philly vs. The World

    Jan 27, 2006, 8:59 AM EDT

  6. D-What? D-Who?

    Jan 27, 2006, 1:23 AM EDT

    Defense?  Yeah, I don’t think the Eagles know what that is anymore. A.I. dropped 46, 10, and 5 to help the Sixers beat the Bulls on Friday but Philly fell to the impressive King James and the Cavs on Satuday night.

  8. Brian Dawkins Named to Pro Bowl

    Jan 26, 2006, 9:14 AM EDT

    It’s nice to see a class guy like Dawkins get the nod to go to Hawaii, even if he didn’t have a phenomenal year.  I think it’s safe to say BDawk is Mr. Eagle; It’s hard to find an Eagles fan who doesn’t love the guy.  I’ll never forget the 4th and 26th game where…

    Jan 25, 2006, 12:01 PM EDT

    You must check out the crazy dunk LeBron James pulled off in warm ups the other night.

    Jan 24, 2006, 6:12 PM EDT

    So this only loosely pertains to Ryan Howard, but the company from which he gets his bats is up for sale and it’s quite the interesting story.  The man who started the company put it up for sale on ebay for $3.5 million.  Nobody bid on it, but it is expected to sell for somewhere…
