    Jan 2, 2006, 5:58 AM EDT

    With the Eagles season finally being put out of misery, we can start to look ahead to getting healthy and retooling.  Yahoo lists the likely draft order: Unofficially here is how the top twenty sits for next April’s draft: 1 Houston 2-14 0 2 New Orleans 3-13 3 Tennessee 4-12 4 N.Y. Jets 4 12…

  3. Sixers Win!

    Jan 1, 2006, 11:02 PM EDT

    Granted they played the Hawks, but a 1-0 start is always good.  For tonight, it looks like all that defensive practice paid off a little.  Don’t get too excited, Atlanta has Tyronne Lue playing for them.  Allen Iverson paced the Sixers with 32. Check out this highlight video from NBA TV.  The announcer calls Sammy…

  4. Pat Burrell & Mike Lieberthal 2006 Topps

    Jan 1, 2006, 3:45 PM EDT

    A new weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Pat Burrell and Mike Lieberthal. Pat "the bat" and one half of the black hole – all this card is missing is David Bell knocking a grounder off his shin and you’d have the collective stomach ache of…

  5. Eagles Trick or Treat

    Jan 1, 2006, 2:11 PM EDT

    The fine folks over at The Eagle Report went trick or treating and some how managed to hit the homes of almost all of the Eagles.  Here’s a sampling of what the Birds were giving out: Brian Dawkins – Jawbreakers: When we rang his doorbell, Dawk jumped out from behind a bush and made a…

  6. Skateboard Mega Ramp

    Jan 1, 2006, 11:58 AM EDT

    From the NYTimes: Approximately 360 feet long, the ramp is 75 feet high at its apex. That is where riders begin their run, speeding down a 180-foot-long roll-in to a ramp that launches them across a 70-foot gap with trapeze netting below. Landing on a 27-foot sloped section, they then boost up to 50 feet…

  7. The Cheesesteak of Suffering

    Jan 1, 2006, 10:09 AM EDT

    I don’t have a Mac, but if I did, this widget sounds tasty.  To tell you the truth, I don’t even know what a widget is?  It kind of makes me think back to Mr. Ostick’s AP econ, guns & butter, Mick Jagger, etc.  Widget?  I don’t know.  But Apple’s got a cheesesteak of death…

  8. The Beginning of the End

    Jan 1, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Photo credit: your pal Matt Tonight marks the start of the Sixers season.  For all intents and purposes this year will be a mediocre campaign at best.  The Sixers haven’t changed a whole lot from the team they put out on the floor last year and with A.I. and CWebb inching closer to the twilight…

  9. Trading Burrell Will Not Be Easy

    Dec 31, 2005, 12:47 PM EDT

    Even Phillies.com is getting real about the fact that the Phillies need to trade Burrell: That doesn’t mean Gillick isn’t going to try. He’s going to aggressively shop Burrell and see what comes of it. I think his answer was simply reminding fans and potential buyers that Burrell can be productive (his .222 average with…

  10. The Orange and the Black (Wigs)

    Dec 31, 2005, 9:16 AM EDT

    Yahoo Photo A solid lead in today’s Courier Post: "It took some time, but the Flyers finally found an opponent as  inept as themselves."  There you go Flyers!  Basically, I’m only talking about the Flyers because they gave the fans orange wigs last night. Flyers fans unofficially set a Guinness world record by getting 9,315…
