    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…

  2. 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.

    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…

    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…

  5. 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.

    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.

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, author of the highly entertaining Blog Maverick, had the University of Texas at Arlington Physics department conduct a study on the new balls the NBA will be using this year compared to the balls previously used.  Click here to read more about balls.  It’s pretty interesting stuff: I asked the…

  9. Who Feels Like This Guy Looks?

    Dec 30, 2005, 10:02 AM EDT

    Andy Reid’s press conference yesterday was hilarious, the bad part is, it’s wasn’t supposed to be. [Eagles.com] In McNabb’s press conference: "one of the worst games I’ve ever been a part of…" Donovan looked and sounded like he just spent the past 20 minutes crying. [Eagles.com] Eagles may sign CB Will Peterson, maybe. [CentreDaily] That…
