  1. You Can’t Change Allen Iverson

    Jan 6, 2006, 7:52 PM EDT

    Today’s NYTimes looks at how Allen Iverson, despite cleaning up his outward appearance, is still as outspoken as ever.  The article takes a look at David Stern’s attempt at creating a "new golden era" of NBA hoops. But Iverson said that Stern’s new rules, most notably the dress code, had not changed him. “Everybody knows…

  2. Trade Rumors: Tejada for Abreu

    Jan 6, 2006, 1:29 PM EDT

    Friday trade rumors are out there which involve Bobby Abreu going to the Orioles for Miguel Tejada who would likely move to third.  The O’s are looking for the Fightins’ to throw in some pitching but the Phillies don’t have a whole lot of quality to offer.  The most humors part of the Fox article,…

  3. What is Wrong With the Sixers?

    Jan 6, 2006, 9:48 AM EDT

    They aren’t losing like we expect them to?  I was going to write something today about the Sixers hot 3-0 start, but frankly, I am at a loss for words.  They are the only undefeated team in the East.  I may have to renege on my position on Kyle Korver.  I don’t like reneging. What’s…

  4. Terrell Owens Sleepy Time

    Jan 6, 2006, 9:01 AM EDT

    The Eagles had a much needed bye this week and I watched as little football as possible to take a step back from the sorry season to this point.  What I did see of the Dallas/Washington game was quite enjoyable.  Terrell Owens caught a TD pass and proceeded to take a nap with the ball…

  5. Childress to Captain Minnesota’s Ship

    Jan 6, 2006, 12:43 AM EDT

    After news earlier in the week that Tom Heckert had been promoted to the title of GM, news broke Thursday night that Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress is set to replace the inept Mike Tice in Minnesota.  The consensus around the league and in Philly was that Childress was long overdue a head coaching position…

  6. Paterno Breaks Bone, Called ‘Old Fart’

    Jan 5, 2006, 9:08 PM EDT

    JoePa had a rough day on Saturday.  His team stinks and got beat up on by Wisconsin 13-3.  He gets tackled and breaks a bone on the sideline.  Then he gets called an "old fart" by an ESPN analyst.  It was more stupid than anything.  Craig James was commenting about how Wisconsin’s coach "gave it…

  7. Sunday Miller Notes on Phillies

    Jan 5, 2006, 5:00 PM EDT’s Randy Miller has become a Phillies fan favorite with his solid insight in his articles.  Today he has 10 hot stove questions to ponder.  Some points I found interesting. A source says Soriano doesn’t care where he plays and has given Bentz total control over negotiations. Look for Bentz, who is seeking a seven-year,…

  8. Iverson Wants Olympic Gold

    Jan 5, 2006, 2:32 PM EDT

    Love him or hate him, you have to respect A.I.’s heart.  In an age where big shots like Kobe and Shaq decide they’d rather take a vacation than bring home a gold for the U.S., A.I. seeks to bring gold back to Philly. ESPN:    "He wants to win a gold medal," said Colangelo, the…

  9. I Fell Asleep

    Jan 5, 2006, 8:52 AM EDT

    I’m sad to admit it, but at some point in the 4th quarter I was gone.  I’m sad I missed what ESPN said, "May have been the greatest championship game performance ever."  Vince Young is nasty.

  10. Iverson Shuts Down Nelson’s Magic

    Jan 4, 2006, 4:04 PM EDT

    Not sure if Sixers fans should be excited that they found a way to beat the Magic in Orlando last night, or discouraged that they played horribly for most of the game.  At this point, I guess we should be excited that they are 2-0.  A.I. hit the game winner with about 2 seconds left.…

  11. The Man

    Jan 4, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    Wow.  Bow down to JoePa.  You have to love the guy.  My brother imed me sometime around 1:00 am, "I wish I never started watching this." The one thing we can take away from this game, as #48 in maroon and gold proved to us in the past, college kickers do in fact suck. You…

  12. Clinton Portis’ Mom Takes No Shit

    Jan 3, 2006, 8:17 PM EDT

    Found this over at Deadspin: What kind of woman would raise a man who would wear a costume like this? What kind of woman could raise such a spawn? The type that will bust you in the mouth, of course. According to The Washington Post, during Sunday’s Redskins win over the Eagles in Philadelphia, some…
