    Jan 21, 2006, 1:52 AM EDT

    The Phillies unfurled a giant 57 foot banner at Citizens Bank Park yesterday to honor Ryan Howard’s MVP award.  You can watch a video on Phillies.com in which Harry Kalas introduces The Big Guy.  The video has congratulations from Mike Schmidt, Dutch Daulton, Donovan McNabb, Governor Ed Rendell, Mike Knuble, Jaws, Sal Pal, Allen Iverson,…

    Jan 20, 2006, 5:28 PM EDT

      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…

    Today’s Inquirer has some more details on Donovan’s Surprise 30th Birthday Party I told you about on Saturday: McNabb’s wife, Roxi, and his brother, Sean, were in charge of planning the event. Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and wife Christina and the bulk of the team came out to help McNabb celebrate his 30th, which is…

  4. Ryan Howard Wins NL MVP

    Jan 20, 2006, 2:20 PM EDT

    The way the ball has been bouncing for Philly sports lately I fully anticipated Albert Pujols winning the NL MVP honors.  When all else fails, we still have Ryan Howard.  Howard today was named the National League MVP.  Howard received 20 first place votes with Pujols receiving 12. After being named the top rookie in…

  5. Andre Waters Dead at 44

    Jan 20, 2006, 1:16 PM EDT

    Growing up, when I thought of a football player being a badass, Andre Waters was the first name to come to mind.  Blinq reports that Waters took his on life at the age of 44.  Waters on Philadelphia: Philadelphia Eagles fans are the best fans in America. They always treated me very special and they…

  6. 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…

  7. No More Women Wrestling in Their Underwear While Soaking Wet

    Jan 20, 2006, 9:47 AM EDT

    Ben Franklin’s 300th birthday was the other day and if we could only take one of his countless quotes to heart it would have to be, "Beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy."  With that being said, the beer industry has been taking a hit as of late and…

  10. Soriano Signs with Cubs for 136 million

    Jan 19, 2006, 4:22 PM EDT

    $136 million.  Wow, just wow.  MSNBC: Chicago radio station ESPN 1000 reported Sunday that the Cubs have signed outfielder Alfonso Soriano to an eight-year contract worth approximately $136 million. 8 Years?!?  Perhaps it’s a good thing the Phillies didn’t get sucked into the Soriano bidding war.  I’m glad the Phillies didn’t shell out that kind…

  11. Isiah Thomas vs. Sports Guy

    Jan 19, 2006, 3:25 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas was one of the best ever at running the show on the court but I think its safe to say he is horrible at running a professional basketball team from up above.  Isiah recently lashed out at who I like to think of as the first sports blogger, Bill Simmons, better known as…

As my girlfriend and I…
