    Henry Abbott over at TrueHoop talks with former Sixers 2nd round draft pick Sam Clancy who is currently playing ball in Spain.  Most of us probably don’t remember too much about Sam Clancy.  I remember him most for his role in knocking my Troy Bell-led Boston College squad out of the 2001 NCAA tournament.  It…

  6. Ryan Howard MVP of Japan Tour

    Jan 8, 2006, 9:54 AM EDT

    I was going to leave the headline as Ryan Howard named MVP and leave off the "of Japan Tour" part.  That would have been mean to those of you who see the headlines first in RSS readers.  Alas, Ryan Howard has not been named MVP of the National League, yet at least.  He was however…

    Jan 7, 2006, 2:59 PM EDT

    Does it pay to read way too many news articles on the Internet?  ESPN has an article today in which Chris Mortensen said Tampa Bay may "seriously consider signing" Owens. I surfed over to which happens to have odds on which team T.O. will play his first game for next season.  Tampa Bay was…

    Jan 7, 2006, 12:43 PM EDT

    Check out ESPN’s pictures from last night’s Nets game against the Magic in East Rutherford and you will see one of my favorite musicians had front row seats.

  12. Howard Never Stops

    Jan 7, 2006, 8:54 AM EDT

    Bill Conlin gives a nice little run down of the beastly nature of Ryan Howard’s trip to Japan.  In Game 2, after taking his mother and sister on a daytime tour of various Tokyo must-sees, Ryan toured the bases. He led off the second with one of those inside-out lasers to left-center. Kentaro Nishimura, a…
