  1. They May Take Our Lives, But They’ll Never Take Our Rocky

    Jan 14, 2006, 7:29 PM EDT

    I don’t really know what to say about this video.  A reader sent it to me and I felt the need to share it.  It’s the kind of video where you will find a picture of Geno’s in the middle of a Flyers montage.  It points out that the city of Philadelphia is number one…

  2. Page Six: 76er a Marathon Man in Bed

    Jan 14, 2006, 4:02 PM EDT

    Continuing with the story I posted last week, Page Six writes about Iverson’s bedroom prowess: "In Round 2, he picked me up and swiftly carried me over to a table, perching me on its edge . . . holding me up by my hips and lower back." Exhausted, Bryan said she tried to rest, but…

    Jan 14, 2006, 1:33 PM EDT

    Via Phillies.com: The Phillies have fired the opening salvo to bring free agent Alfonso Soriano to Philadelphia. An industry source confirmed that the Phillies are one of "a few" teams to present an offer to the outfielder, believed to be for four to five years. The Phillies are also believed to be willing to go…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Iverson’s Mom Gets First Victory

    Jan 13, 2006, 2:42 PM EDT

    It’s not everyday that someone achieves such a glorious milestone.  Yesterday was a big day in the life of Allen Iverson’s mother.  The Richmond Ballerz, a team which Mrs. A.I. co-owns, won their first game. ROCKVILLE, Md. — The first victory for the new American Basketball Association Richmond Ballerz featured a run-and-gun score reminiscent of…

  8. Old School Nintendo

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
