  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    After coming up with the 9th most miserable moment in NFL history, Philly comes in at number 4 among miserable baseball franchises as picked by ESPN’s Page2: 4. Philadelphia Phillies More than a century in the majors and exactly one world championship. No wonder Philly fans often feel like they just went the distance with…

  6. Stallworth on Eskin

    Jan 17, 2006, 6:16 PM EDT

    Donte Stallworth was a guest on WIP’s Howard Eskin show this evening for well over an hour.  Donte comes off as a very bright, open, and interesting guy.  Perhaps the funniest part of the appearance was Stallworth’s constant references to Madden.  Donte told Eskin that he traded himself to the Eagles three years ago in…

  7. Second Place isn’t Completely Worthless

    Jan 17, 2006, 10:19 AM EDT

    For the Phillies players at least.  This year’s World Series created a ton of money for the teams and players involved.  Check out this article which breaks it all down.  What I found interesting was the little note at the bottom about how some of the teams that didn’t even make the playoffs got a…

    It didn’t take long for Chris Webber to change his tune.  A week ago he was all about putting the team first.  This morning’s Sacramento Bee says Webber is unhappy and wants to be put in a situation where he can play more ball.  For those not paying attention to the Sixers, CWebb sat the…

    Jan 17, 2006, 12:24 AM EDT

    Desperate Housewives wins an award for BEST COMEDY over Curb Your Enthusiasm AND Entourage and a bunch of other shows I’m sure are funnier than desperate old ladies.  Who votes for these things?  Americans are stupid. Other random thoughts:-Sara Jessica Parker is ugly and annoying.-What the hell did Seal do right? I like lists:11. Queen…

  11. Iverson to Pay for Murdered Man’s Funeral

    Jan 16, 2006, 9:31 AM EDT

    While I’m sure most murders in Philadelphia have tragic stories behind them, this one is just mindless: On June 24, 2003, a group of teens approached Johnson while he was waiting for a trolley and demanded he give up the Iverson jersey he was wearing. When he refused, Johnson was shot in the back of…

  12. Iggy Coming Into Form?

    Jan 16, 2006, 9:07 AM EDT

    While most of us were sleeping, the Sixers ended Seattle’s nice little 3 game winning streak last night.  Phil Jasner in this morning’s Daily News was impressed with the type of game the other A.I. had: This was the Iguodala the Sixers must have. This was the multitalented, multipositional athlete everyone – including himself -…
