1. Game 5 of the '93 World Series (Schilling's 2-hitter at the Vet).
2. AFC Championship, 1996. Steelers 20, Colts 16 @ Three Rivers. Pittsburgh escapes & advances to the Super Bowl. I swear Bailey caught that pass from Harbaugh in the end zone with no time left (I was right down there), but either way, one of the greatest endings I've ever witnessed first-hand.

Get Those Grades Up:: A mistrial was declared this morning in the case of former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Greg Lloyd, who was charged with aggravated assault for allegedly shoving a gun in his son's mouth to punish him for poor grades.

The busiest day of the NHL Calendar...: or so they say. Another season and another trading deadline has arrived. Will there actually be any blockbuster deals in the final hours this year, or will it be just another tease of meaningless swaps? Things have already started today and Colorado is first out of the gates, acquiring Tommy Salo and Chris Gratton in separate deals. Everyone's in on the deadline tracking action, including, NHLPA.comand Happy Trading!

Ducks & Flyers Under One Roof?: With the potential blockbuster merger of cable giant Comcast and global giant the Walt Disney Co., one of the factors during today's discussions has been overlooked and could provide for some interesting debate down the line: A merger would put the Philadelphia Flyers and Anaheim Mighty Ducks on the same company payroll...

It's Time for me to

Not that I am defending Clarkie -- believe me, it was time for him to go -- but just to clarify the comment by Bishop...Clarke was not the Flyers' GM when Philadelphia pulled the trigger on the big Eric Lindros deal in 1992. The GM at the time was Russ Farwell. He was GM from 1990-1994 before Philadelphia brought Clarke back. What blows me away, looking back now, are all the links between Philadelphia and that trade... -The arbitrator who ruled in favor of Lindros going to Philadelphia was Larry Bertuzzi, the uncle of NHLer Todd Bertuzzi, who had a brief stint with the Flyboys; -Peter Forsberg, of course, who is now back with Philadelphia; -and another brief stay as a Flyer this season -- Nolan Baumgartner -- heralded by Clarke as the answer to the Flyers recent troubles. Baumgartner was part of the Lindros trade as the 1994 first round pick (one of the two Bishop noted above), later traded to the Maple Leads and then to Washington. I don't place much faith in Holmgren as Interim GM, but I think between Stevens and Asst. Coach Terry Murray (who last took the Flyers to the cup finals in 1997), maybe they can make some moves and turn things around. By the way Murray, don't think I forget my college days as a reporter when you nearly took my head off in the bowels of the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh following an embarrassing loss to the Penguins. :) ~Let's Go Flyers~

Arena Building Pays Off in Orlando

Sorry guys, count me out -- I've got all my money invested in the "Get Allen Iverson out of Philadelphia" campaign...

Dikembe Mutombo

I was so thrilled when Deke was playing in Philadelphia, he was such a class act. He is an amazing athlete, but more importantly, he is a fantastic human being. Man, if even half of the players in the NBA could have as big a heart as him...

posted by rosey8810 at 02:39 PM on August 22, 2006 picks the Top 25.

I think the Pittsburgh Panthers will be up there this year, at least in the top 30. a24kurtz02, as a Panther alum, I'd love nothing more. But I think they're still another year away. Hope they surprise us. And I'm really looking forward to hoops season!

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

I can think of a couple games off the top of my head that he won. Including a 10th inning inside-the-parker. We booed Mike Schmidt so why would we appreciate Abreu? But give us a .260 CF that runs into walls and we'll put him in Cooperstown. Go figure. You made my point -- you can only think of a couple times! Once this year he hit a walk-off. There hasn't been too many other moments for him in that light. Yes, the ol' "we boo'ed Mike Schmidt" line. That guy busted his butt more than Bobby ever did, which is why he is respected more than Abreu. Not even up for debate.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

Coming from a Philadelphia native who has been lucky (or unlucky) enough to see Abreu in the clutch... Picture this: Yanks-Sox, game 7, ALCS, Sox up 3, Yanks at bat, bases loaded, two outs, Abreu at the plate...Good Luck Yankees fans. (Can you say swiiiing-and-a-miss?) Rarely does this guy come up big. Yanks did not do enough to help themselves, neither did Boston. This is going to come down to the last week unless New York's pitching falls apart.

Fights so bad...

Yes, that is the very same Ken Shamrock. He's still tough, but now that he is past the 40-yr mark, he is definitely on the downhill side.

Rollie the goalie has an owie

Stranger things have happened when teams lose key players. But the dropoff level in goaltending from #1 to #2 in Edmonton is to steep. Maybe Conklin will surprise us, but I just don't see it. Carolina in four.

Hall Opens Doors for Paterno, Bowden

Ok, a grudging congrats to JoePa. Even this Pitt alum acknowledges what he's done for Pennsylvania Football. But now...will you retire already? No matter what people say, he was not the driving force behind a great 2005 PSU season (let's be real, Hall/Bradley ran the show). Time to step down and restart the interstate rivalry with the Panthers. You don't stop one of the best interstate rivalries becuase you were struggling against them and to pad your schedule.

1000 wins for Joe Torre

Here here, uglatto. Congrats to Torre for getting this far, but I curse him for the rest of his time with the Yanks.

Reliving near misses

1992 NLCS...Francisco Cabrera (curse him!), Sid Bream and the Atlanta Braves outlast Stan Freakin' Belinda, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla, Andy Van Slyke and the rest of the Pittsburgh Pirates, game 7, bottom of the 9th rally. Still think Bream was out at home plate. (Recap)

I can't believe rodman is even worth of a news story anymore. totally useless guy.

TO is hurt already

It actually is legit. Reid cleared the air with the media last night. And if you know how Reid is, he doesn't play around with that stuff. More injuries today though -- this time Pinkston and (surprise!) Buckhalter

Webber Traded to Philly

Sixers just moved Glenn Robinson to the Hornets for Rodney Rogers and Jamal Mashburn (retiring). I think Billy King may have just saved his job.

Eagles Land in Jacksonville

Sorry, haven't visited in a bit, but lil' brown, I DID read the thread, I was referring to comment #3... p.s. I think the NFC edged the AFC this year for Poorest Rendition of the National Anthem. It wasn't a blowout, but...I sure hope that singer at the NFC game was somebody important's kid, that's all I can say. posted by lil_brown_bat at 5:45 PM CST on January 23 I was not angry nor was I firing anything anywhere, just saying cut the kid some slack. If it's a typo fine, otherwise check what you write before you comment.
