  1. The Sixers Are Who We Thought They Were

    Jan 8, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Everybody keeps saying that we don’t have any talent, but we’ve got talent. It’s not the most talented team in the world, but it’s good enough and we have to believe that anybody can beat anyone in this league on any give night. -Kyle Korver after last night’s 97-86 loss to Indiana. Hey, they’re good…

  2. Reebok Launches McNabb’s Super 5

    Donovan McNabb has a new line from Reebok coming out known as Super 5, a nickname we’ve used for DonnieMac on many occasions. From Eagles.com: Reebok, the exclusive on-field and sideline apparel provider of the NFL, has partnered with Eagles All-Pro quarterback Donovan McNabb to create the brand’s first signature men’s apparel collection for an…

  3. Terrell Owens to Tampa Bay?

    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 Sportsbook.com which happens to have odds on which team T.O. will play his first game for next season.  Tampa Bay was…

  4. Trey Anastasio @ Nets Game

    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. Also of note in Phish news, they are releasing many of their shows in low quality video on their Live Phish website.  You can sample the goods…

  5. A Year Ago This Week

    Jan 7, 2006, 9:54 AM EDT

    It was a year ago this week that Andy Reid sent T.O. packing for good.  We had news of the fight between Owens and High Douglas and wrote our Owens obituary titled "We’ll Always Have Dallas:" Then it all came crashing down.  Enter Drew Rosenhaus.   ESPN interview after ESPN interview.  Owens attacking his former best…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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,…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…
