  1. McNabb Joins Iverson in Slinging Vitamin Water

    Jan 3, 2006, 9:12 AM EDT

    First it was Allen Iverson on billboards with the slickly designed bottles, now Donovan McNabb has gotten in on the Glaceau Vitamin Water kick.  I’d have to guess that Donovan’s recent signs of a weak constitution wouldn’t help his image as a drinker of vitamin water.  It turns out McNabb is a highly desired player…

  3. Apparently There is Tying in Baseball

    Jan 2, 2006, 10:46 AM EDT

    It’s November and Ryan Howard is still hitting bombs.  The MLB team tied the Yomuiri Giants 7-7 in Tokyo yesterday (or is it today?). Ryan Howard and Jones hit back-to-back solo homers in the top of the sixth inning to pull the MLB stars to within two runs after the Giants had jumped out to…

  4. Roy Jones Jr. to Fight in Philly

    Jan 2, 2006, 9:25 AM EDT

    Who was the greatest?  Who was the best of all time?  If two athletes from different eras could actually compete against each other, who would come out on top?  Ah shit, wrong story. Anyway, Roy Jones Jr. is going to fight in Philly.  Manny Siaca, of Puerto Rico, will be his opponent.  In his press…

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…
