    Yep, John Street is the mayor of Philadelphia.  Ryan Howard had a busy day yesterday.  He played with kids, met with Mayor Street, and watched the Sixers.  The worst part of the day was when Mayor Street referred to him as Ron.  Ron Howard.

    But now I’m rethinking that plan.  A.I. made a little trip to the dentist.  Actually I’m pretty sure it’s an oral surgeon who removes wisdom teeth. PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) – Philadelphia 76ers superstar Allen Iverson will miss Tuesday night’s game against the Detroit Pistons after undergoing oral surgery to remove an abscessed wisdom tooth. Ouch.

  3. Sixers Website is Not Good

    Jan 21, 2006, 2:22 PM EDT

    Anyone who is a Philly sports fan makes fun of Eagles website czar Dave Spadaro from time to time.  But if you compare the Eagles website to some of the other teams in Philly it is truly remarkable how great the Eagles website is in comparison.  For instance, check out the Sixers weekly feature titled…

    The Big Guy just keeps on bringing cheer to Philadelphia.  Ryan Howard showed up at an elementary school today in South Philly where they were painting a mural of him.  The kids sang happy birthday to Howard who turned 27 on Sunday.  Little kids are awesome — when they’re not whining little brats of course.…

    "What’s crazy about standing toe-to-toe sayin, I am" The latest full length trailer of Rocky Balboa has me counting down the days until Christmas.  Rocky Balboa is going to be one of those movies that is so bad that it’s amazing.  I’m going to see it just to watch Paulie.  I’m pretty sure he’s painting…

      Main Street Manayunk    Originally uploaded by Lo-Fi Adventures. Yesterday’s Philadelphia marathon was exhausting.  I had to walk block after block to get into prime position to catch a glimpse of the runners.  There was a great local story to come out of the marathon.  An Ardmore man came out of nowhere in only…

  12. Oh Fro-Hawk, Please Come Home

    Jan 20, 2006, 11:20 AM EDT

    Remember last years Superbowl team?  It wasn’t all that long ago.  Freddie Mitchell sporting his Fro Hawk, Terrell running all over people, those were the days.  The Eagles have become a somewhat boring team since then.  I haven’t had a whole lot of fuel for my blogging fire. But Jaws is trying to give us…
