How’d it get so sunny in Philadelphia?

Posted March 31, 2009 by Vin

I used to (and still do) daydream about what would have happened if Joe Carter doesn’t hit that home run, if Ronde Barber doesn’t intercept that pass, if Robert Horry doesn’t make that three in game 2 of the 2001 Finals, if Scott Stevens doesn’t leave Lindros in a crumpled heap on the ice.  I [...]

An open letter to Ed Stefanski (or how to fix the Sixers experience)

Posted February 26, 2009 by Vin

Dear Ed, Long time fan, first time season ticket holder here.  I know you’ve got a lot of problems on your plate right now: the Sixers have been freefalling since the All-Star Break, your prize free agent acquisition (and $80M man) is sitting in street clothes, the team can’t play perimeter defense with under 30 [...]

Reid and McNabb: More fool’s gold for Philly fans

Posted January 31, 2009 by Vin

It was week 12 of the 2008 NFL season and the unthinkable happened: Donovan McNabb was benched for the second half. Kevin Kolb stepped in and promptly screwed the pooch some more. That poor pooch had a rough couple of weeks as he’d already been screwed repeatedly by McNabb in previous quarters. Every Eagles fan [...]

Hoping for the end of the world

Posted October 22, 2008 by Vin

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the World Series. First pitch is in about 5 minutes and then it will be official. They are the Cinderella team, the feel good story, the team that went from worst to first, winning the AL despite one of the smallest payrolls in the majors. They have a storied [...]

Week 6 2008 NFL Picks and Podcast

Posted October 10, 2008 by Vin

Week 5 of the NFL season was pretty rough.  Ryan continues to lead both the picks straight up and against the spread while RJ continue his streak of anti-locks.  We’re eagerly awaiting this week’s lock so we can bet against it.  He’s nothing if not consistent.  The featured games this week are Ravens @ Colts, [...]

Video Game Review: Top Spin 3

Posted August 5, 2008 by Vin

Tennis is a strange sport for a video game. I think you’d be hard pressed to find 5 people you know who own a console and play tennis competitively. Now, most people don’t play football either but that doesn’t stop Madden from being a juggernaut franchise. The difference though is that everyone watches football while [...]

Week 5 2007 NFL Picks and Podcast

Posted October 4, 2007 by Vin

First of all, let me apologize for our very poor showing last week. I don’t know how anyone could have picked the sheer number of upsets that happened. We expect there to be a major correction this week with the favorites winning most of the games. Hopefully, we’ll average at leat 75% right and you [...]
