  1. Westbrook signs tender offer; Reports to mini camp

    Jun 1, 2005, 1:15 PM EDT

    Good news for Bird fans.  Brian Westbrook has signed the tender offer from the Eagles worth approximately 1.4 million for this coming season. Unlike Terrell Owens, Westbrook has never threatened to sit out of training camp if a long term deal was not reached.  The Eagles didn’t ink BWest to a long term deal, but…

  2. Phils take Giants opener, East tightens to 3.5

    May 31, 2005, 10:36 PM EDT

    Randy Wolf pitched a great game to lead the Phillies past the Giants and the Braves fell to the Nationals making the NL East the tightest division in baseball.  Atlanta and Florida are tied atop the division with Washington being 1.5 back, the Mets 2.5 back, and the Phillies 3.5 back. Ryan Madson continues to…

  3. Danica in FHM

    May 31, 2005, 2:57 PM EDT

    Not sure how dated these are and I’m not into turning objects into women, but here is a link to the newest lady of sports Danica Patrick.  On Sunday she became the first female to ever lead the Indy 500.  That’s cool.  I didn’t watch a second of it and have no real interest in…

  4. Face Off Philadelphia

    May 31, 2005, 11:50 AM EDT

    The NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships were at the Linc this weekend and the 700level undoubtedly had a man on the scene. The D1 semi-finals were played on Saturday. The tailgate scene was strong to quite strong. The Level got involved in some hardcore beer pong at approximately 9am. Kids with lacrosse sticks everywhere and surprisingly…

  5. Live 8 coming back to Philly

    May 30, 2005, 10:20 PM EDT

    UPDATED: Philly.com has a short AP wire article which lists some of the artists performing: Will Smith, DMB, Stevie Wonder, & Bon Jovi among others.  I have a feeling many more artists will be announced; I’m thinking maybe Springsteen and Dylan. Fox news has a report on the return of Live Aid to Philadelphia, this…

  6. Thome Goes Yard & Phils beat Atlanta

    May 27, 2005, 11:11 PM EDT

    Jim Thome took John Smoltz deep for only his second home run of the year.  Thome hit a 3-run shot in the first inning to put the Phillies ahead 4-0 in the first inning and they wouldn’t look back.  Prior to Thome’s HR, Abreu singled in Jimmy Rollins. Cory Lidle threw another great outing going…

  7. ReebokNFL Commercials & Outtakes: Sup5, Freak, & Ake

    May 27, 2005, 7:24 PM EDT

    Reebok.com has a link to all of their commercials (videos are bottom right) they did where they put 11 NFL players in a house.  They all feature Donovan McNabb, Jevon Kearse, and David Akers.  Some are pretty funny and the outtakes are great.  These commercials sure beat the Chunky Soup ads. My favorite one features…

  8. Zooma Tour Canceled

    May 26, 2005, 11:24 PM EDT

    Man.  This news sucks.  I recently got the best tickets for any concert I have ever been to, 6th row in the pitt, for the now canceled Zooma Tour which was to feature Trey Anastasio, Ben Harper, MMW, Les Claypool, among others.  I was looking forward to this show in Camden a lot.  It was…

  9. What do you think of Charlie Manuel?

    May 26, 2005, 12:04 PM EDT

    We all know how most of Philadelphia feels about Ed Wade.  What I am curious about is how you feel about the Phillies jolly old skipper Charlie Manuel.  I’d like for those with opinions one way or the other to leave some comments.  I encourage quotes you think are ridiculous and funny, or situations you…

  10. Phillies win, but still stink

    May 25, 2005, 10:22 PM EDT

    This was the first game I watched in a while, having been extremely busy lately I’ve been listening to a lot, but the Phils didn’t look that bad.  Wolf pitched pretty well until late in the game.  I still can’t get excited about the Phils after they blew Tuesday nights game.  Charlie Manuel gives me…

  11. Terry Adams.. Sucks.

    May 24, 2005, 7:49 PM EDT

    Phillies Thankfully he was fired, or "designated for assignment" as they like to put it.  Man, he was bad, and not just kind of bad, he was horrid.  The Phillies brought up Amaury Telemaco who spent most of last season on the squad and appearing in 42 games totaled an ERA of 4.31.  Terry Adams…

  12. Sixers Fire O’Brien, Hire Mo Cheeks

    May 23, 2005, 5:15 PM EDT

    Wow, bold move by Billy King.  My initial thoughts after hearing this minutes ago are positive.  Mo Cheeks was my hero growing up, I used to model my game after him.  Jim O’Brien is not a good coach, Mo Cheeks is a good coach.  My only concern is how he will mesh with the man…
