  1. Flyers Clean House

    Dec 23, 2005, 9:45 AM EDT

    Bob Clarke resigned and Ken Hitchcock was fired.  I wouldn’t say I’m shocked that the Flyers, who are off to their worst start in over 15 years, cleaned house this weekend.  Out with the old, in with the new.  That’s how sports goes when losing spreads rampant.  (Except for maybe the Phillies, of course) While…

  2. Parent Threatens Peewee Coach with Loaded 357 Magnum

    Dec 22, 2005, 11:05 PM EDT

    The parent of a 6 year old peewee football player pulled out a loaded magnum and threatened a coach with it.  The game was between the Outlaws and the Raiders. Acording to 6ABC’s website: During the game that started at 10am Sunday morning at Burholme Park, a father of a player started arguing with the…

  3. Donovan McNabb Pukes

    Video of Donovan McNabb puking at the line of scrimage in the horrible loss today to the Tampa Bay Bucs.  Insert Chunky soup jokes here.

  4. We Are! Drunk Fools!

    Dec 20, 2005, 6:18 PM EDT

    For the record: I never attended PSU.  This video was almost entertaining until the middle aged guy, who I’m assuming was telling all the college kids about his days as a CYO All Star, gets in the ring.  (via Fanhouse)

  5. We Talkin Bout Practice

    Dec 20, 2005, 10:41 AM EDT

    Not the game… Practice.  (longer version here) With the Sixers season starting up in just about 10 days coupled with the lack of intersting sports news today, I thought we could all use a little practice. >>Full transcript of the press conference [SI.com] Ad:

  6. WATN: Endy Chavez & Scott Rolen

    Dec 20, 2005, 12:45 AM EDT

    Yahoo Photos A couple of ex-Phillies rubbed shoulders last night.  While Endy Chavez’s simply amazing catch prevented a Scott Rolen home run, Rolen’s Cardinals took the series and earned the trip to play Detroit in the World Series.  It was a fun game to watch.  I’m glad I’m not a Mets fan today. I’m looking…

  7. That’s The Closest Bill Giles Will Get to That Trophy

    Dec 20, 2005, 12:05 AM EDT

    Bill Giles was the "honorary National League Commissioner" or something to that affect last night in New York.  He presented the Cardinals with the Warren C. Giles trophy which is named after Bill’s father.  The trophy is awarded to the National League Championship Series winner. >>Warren Giles [Wikipedia]>>Giles and Vet go hand and hand [Phillies.com]

  8. Game 7: Delirium or Denouement

    Dec 19, 2005, 5:02 PM EDT

    The following is an email I just received from my buddy Chris.  He’s a Mets fan.  I’m posting it here, with his permission, because I thought some of you would enjoy it.  (I’m pulling for the Mets) October 16th, 2003 October 20th, 2004   Those two dates represent that last two times that a game…

  9. Is there a Ralph’s Around Here?

    Dec 19, 2005, 11:59 AM EDT

    I’d settle for a coffee can: Starting next season, fans of the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will be able to have a casket or cremation urn emblazoned with their team colors and insignia.

  10. Cheesesteak Wars

    Dec 19, 2005, 9:26 AM EDT

    The lede in this story is awesome: PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The battle for cheesesteak supremacy — usually fought with beef, onions and cheese — has moved out of the kitchen and into the courthouse. Pat’s King of Steaks, a South Philadelphia institution since the 1930s, is suing Rick’s Steaks for trademark infringement. Rick’s Steaks took…

  11. Joe Morgan 1984 Topps

    Dec 18, 2005, 12:11 PM EDT

    A new weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Joe Morgan. Perhaps I’m pointing out my own ignorance on this one, but I didn’t know Joe Morgan played for the Phillies.  Alas, on my recent trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum I picked…

  12. Random Thought of the Day

    Dec 18, 2005, 9:27 AM EDT

    Scoring 9 goals in a hockey game is a lot.  The Flyers must be pretty shitty this year.  I like that Hitchcock guy though.  He makes for a good interview, unlike Andy Reid.  You know what they say, "If you’re going to let a team score 9 goals on you, at least give a good…
