Sports Bio

Ive been to many baseball games,most notably game 5 of the 1993 world series. Curt Schilling pitched a complete 2-0 shutout to force game 6. We all know what happened after that.Live and die with the Phillies, Allen Iverson is the best player in the NBA, cry before during and after the Flyers seasons, and will always bleed Eagles green.

First round KO: Philly's first "Flyin Hawaiian" knocks out Jose Canseco in the first round of a celebrity-charity boxing match. He treated him like the Giants goal-post in 1992, making Canseco look even more ridiculous then he already has made himself. Sikahema was asked if there were any surprises. "That it didn't finish in the first 30 seconds," he said.

As the Apple turns...: Willie Randolph is out as manager of the New York Mets, fired in the middle of the night 2 1/2 months into a disappointing season that has followed the team's colossal collapse last September. In the middle of the night? Seems pretty cold.

How 'bout dem ball-girls?!: The bottom line is having the best seat at Citizens Bank Park. It was enticing to Laura Litzenberger, another of the new ballgirls. "I spoke to some of the girls who were ballgirls last year and my biggest fear is touching a fair ball; they told us to concentrate on the game," said Litzenberger, a Kutztown University graduate with a degree in elementary education.

$5 Dollar Fine: for looking at his hair too long. Some funny baseball humor. "They're very strict in Double-A," said Chris Coste, Kendrick's teammate on the R-Phillies. "The problem is that it was written up and put in the kangaroo court box, but he was called up before the case could be read." The charge? "Spending 22 minutes and 39 seconds in front of the mirror doing his hair," Coste said, without a hint of a smile. "And his hair didn't change from Minute 1 to Minute 22. He really likes his hair."

The Saints come home to a heart warming party: and hang out with grateful, while a little tipsy, fans of the city's historically maligned, now proud franchise. If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye, you dont like football. It brought a couple to mine, and I am a Philadelphia phan.

McCarthy: marketing deal good for Favre

"Oops, was I thinking out loud there? Sorry. I must be suffering from Favre Fatigue. Anyone know where I can get treatment?" No worries there. Lets go Brett, dont play and cut yer losses. Myself? I am more concerned with Donovan McNabb.

AFI names its top 10 sports movies

A few god picks I would agree yes, but Slapshot should be on that list, Major League yup. No Water Boy? No Invincible(made by Disney, hence no cursing in a South Philly bar? C'mon yo!!) but we cannot forget the all-time classic, Debbie Does Dallas eh?(just for shits and giggles at least) What about Any Given Sunday or even the Last Boy Scout?

Mets' Wagner calls out teammates for ducking media

While I wish no ill-will on any baseball team, as a born and bred Phillies phan I can only look on with glee at the Mets misfortunes. That and taking a couple from the Braves. Seems like Wagner has a big mouth but he does speak the truth. And bring the heat. Enter Sandman.

Pink Balls

I have no problem with pink balls. I bought my mother a pink mother's day Louisville Slugger last year. I have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to Cricket rules. Wish I did actually. Whats' next? Pink pucks for the NHL? Pink soccer balls for the World Cup? Perhaps pink footballs for the NFL?

"I would wear them just to get the confused glances..." Man, I could have people confused almost every day of the week being a Phillies, Flyers, Eagles and 76ers phan!!

You have got to be kidding. Just goes to show that Belichick's and the Patriot's arrogance knows no bounds. It was with great glee seeing these kids running around in the Pat's 19-0 shirts( I don't know how to make the link look like regular words) http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/15224640/detail.html So does that mean they are gonna try and charge the little poor Nicaraguan kids for the privilege of wearing these shirts?

Basketball team resists Saudi restrictions on female athletes.

"This wouldn't happen if the event were being held in Saudi Arabia, where women aren't even aloud to drive. " Do "women" in Saudi Arabia know how to spell, what are they "allowed" to do?? Can they defend the pick-and-roll?

Isiah Permanently Ejected

Who would hire him? Hopefully NOT my Sixers. Is there any way he could coach the Raiders?

School team hit for 66 runs in two innings

They should institute a 10 run mercy rule like they had in my little league days. And get a pitcher not a belly-itcher. Maybe also some batters and not turkey platters.
