  2. Doug Flutie Needs Protection

    Jan 14, 2006, 9:24 AM EDT

    We Boston College alum don’t have many legends to hold in places of high honor.  I heard Troy Bell gave up his hopes of a career in the NBA for a shot at boxing, but has recently been spotted at an NBDL try out.  Craig Smith seems to be too undersized to stick anywhere.  Who…

  3. Obviously He’s Not a Golfer

    Jan 14, 2006, 8:58 AM EDT

    The hot stove is sure to get hotter in the coming days, but before any real talks began, baseball GM’s hit the lanes: Before knocking down trade rumors, baseball general managers toppled some bowling pins. GMs began their annual meetings Monday with an afternoon at the lanes, putting on colored shirts for some kegling. ‘‘I…

  4. Villanova Gets National Attention

    Jan 14, 2006, 1:34 AM EDT

    Nova is garnering national pub and, with the way they can shoot, they deserve it: The rollouts aren’t as clever as they used to be. Rules prohibit the shower of streamers onto the court after the first made basket. Some of the games are now played on the Main Line or in North Philly instead…

    If you had a childhood anything at all like mine you will truly enjoy clicking these links. One of the funniest video’s I have seen on the internet in ages is a real person version of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out.  An absolute must click, even for just the music alone. Next Up: everything you ever…

  7. 20.7 Mil to Sit the Bench in Crunch Time

    Jan 13, 2006, 9:23 AM EDT

    A nice article today by the Inquirer’s Joe Juliano on the Sixers $20.7 million dollar man who doesn’t see much action in the fourth quarter. All the hope and optimism that Chris Webber expressed during the preseason, when he felt confident he would play more like the player he was before major knee surgery in…

  8. Google Video & NBA Team Up

    Jan 13, 2006, 12:39 AM EDT

    If you are a geek of any kind you know that this past week was CES where Google announced an online video store among other things.  Usually, Google knows what they are doing, but their partnership with the NBA has me puzzled a bit.  You can now purchase a video of an NBA game for…

  9. Eagles Crush Skins

    Jan 13, 2006, 12:32 AM EDT

    I wrote a short game recap as well as a short picture post over at the Fanhouse but I thought I’d comment here about Brian Dawkins.  Sitting behind the Eagles bench gives you an amazing look at the passion Brian Dawkins brings on every play.  When he’s not in the game pumping his teammates up…

  10. Eagles Fans Aren’t All Bad

    Jan 12, 2006, 2:51 PM EDT

    The Eagles message board can be a dangerous place for the uninitiated.  I’ve been a member since March of 2004 but am more of a lurker than an active participant.  Over at All Spin Zone they tell a tale of Eagles fans coming together and forming real life relationships through their common love for our…

    Editors Note: Enrico’s former roommate is now The700Level’s foreign correspondent who resides in the capital city of Ireland. This report comes from Scott in Dublin. I went to the Ireland v South Africa rugby match at Lansdowne Road. After going down 3-0 early, Andrew Trimble took a great pass from Ronan O’Gara in for a…

  12. Terrell Owens For Dirty Socks

    Jan 12, 2006, 1:01 AM EDT

    It was reported yesterday that the Eagles are allowing Drew Rosenhaus to seek a trade for Terrell Owens from the Eagles.  Ray Ratto got this one perfectly right, note the headline:       "The Philadelphia Eagles       have given agent Drew Rosenhaus permission to seek a trade for Terrell       Owens, though it’s…
