    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…

    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…

    So it looks like the Inquirer and Daily News employees are going on strike Thursday night and launching their own competing website to Philly.com.
