    Mar 30, 2005, 2:22 AM EDT

    The NFL draft is fast approaching with less than 4 weeks till the former college boys whip out their finest purple suits they can afford.  The Eagles, with their plethora of picks, are poised to make some noise.   NFL.com has a write up featuring the players who are likely to make up the second half…

  3. Phillies lose to Sox: 9-5

    Mar 29, 2005, 11:21 AM EDT

    I realize that no one really cares much about Spring Training baseball, and that’s cool.  I just thought I would take this opportunity to point out how much nicer of a website Boston.com is when compared to Philly.com.  The sports section is especially nicer with Globe devoted pages to all Boston teams; they even break…

  4. Kenny Thomas and Brian Skinner

    Mar 29, 2005, 9:54 AM EDT

    You have to feel pathetic when Kenny Thomas and Brian Skinner get the best of you.  The Sixers lost to the Kings last night in Chris Webber’s return to Arco Arena.  I didn’t watch any of the game because it was on the Left Coast.  What a bad Coast. Webber apparently went 4 for 20…

  5. This is a Philly Sports Blog

    Mar 29, 2005, 7:03 AM EDT

    Yes, This is a Philly Sports Blog, but I think I may start posting some other random things which I think are interesting, and I’m sure many of you will find them interesting as well.  If not, let me know in the comments section.  Don’t worry, the Eagles, Sixers, and Phillies will still be the…

  6. Sixers beat Kobe. Iggy has hops.

    Mar 28, 2005, 11:55 AM EDT

    The Sixers beat the struggling Lakers for the first time in L.A. since 1998 despite A.I. shooting 7 for 72.  The 76ers are on a mini run with the Webber to Iverson tandem picking up some steam.  I think they have settled into their roles a little better now and it looks like they will…

  7. Eagles great at drafting for future

    Mar 28, 2005, 10:20 AM EDT

    There is a nice little piece today over at Foxsports talking about the Eagles efficiency in recent years at drafting for the future, and not necessarily current need.  They use Lito and Mr. Brown as examples to replace Troy and Bobby. An AFC executive says that by the second year, high draft picks should be…

  8. Phillies roster spots coming down to wire

    Mar 28, 2005, 6:12 AM EDT

    With only a week left until opening day, it’s nearing that time for the Phillies to be finalizing their roster for opening day.  Kenny Lofton and Marlon Byrd are likely to open the season on the DL, which leaves 2 likely spots open with a few players fighting for a spot.  I would love to…

  9. Iverson hits game winner against Toronto

    Mar 25, 2005, 11:47 PM EDT

    Donyell Marshall only had 7 three pointers this time around and that wasn’t enough.  A.I. hit the game winner with 2 seconds left to give the Sixers a 103-101 win over Toronto. C-Webb had a nice game with 32 points, second to Iverson’s 36.  Can both superstars actually work together?  Tonight is a good example…

  10. McNabb lobbied for Plax

    Mar 25, 2005, 9:26 AM EDT

    When McNabb lobbied for T.O. last off season it worked.. his attempt to lobby for Plax this off season didn’t.  Foxsports is reporting that Donovan tried to convince the Eagles management that Plax would look good in green.  You can’t argue with DonnyMac, but the price tag the Giants paid was a bit high. Link:…

  11. Philadelphia ranks 34th

    Mar 24, 2005, 3:19 PM EDT

    Some website ranks city skylines and Philadelphia came in at 34th globally.  The criteria is kind of whacked, but who really cares? Completely unrelated: You can purchase jerseys which Eagles players wore in the NFCC game against Atlanta.
