No Sports For Me

No Sports For Me

Yesterday was not a good day for me in terms of watching games I would have liked to watch.  The day game at Citizens Bank Park was.. well.. during the day, and some of us have jobs and the like.  I was getting IM updates during some of the game.  The Phils couldn't complete the sweep, but put up a decent effort after being down big early.

It would have been nice to see Bobby A. get a late inning game winner simply to hear how the wolf man Howard Eskin would respond.  But alas, Thome and Abreu came up short.

In the second game I missed of the day, The Pistons shut down the dynamic duo of Wade and Shaq in a game I know nothing about.  Did anyone else get a hurricane rolling through their neighborhood?  Power was out for hours and all I could do was listen to Jimmy Cliff's The Harder They Come and Bruce Springsteen's Live in New York on my new laptop.  They are the only 2 cds I have ripped on there so far.  How weird is it when the power goes out for that long?  I didn't even have a flashlight so my laptop was the only light I had.  Did I miss a classic in the Heat/Pistons game?  Does anyone think Larry Brown is an honest guy?

Report: Darren Sproles out indefinitely with broken arm

Report: Darren Sproles out indefinitely with broken arm

It appears the Eagles have lost running back Darren Sproles for a while.

Sproles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, suffered a broken arm in Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Giants and is out indefinitely.

Sproles left the game early in the second quarter with what was announced as a wrist injury and did not return after running the ball three times for 11 yards. 

Despite his loss, the Eagles' run game thrived. Wendell Smallwood, LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement combined for 160 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 30 carries.

Veteran Torrey Smith, for the time being at least, will take over as the Eagles' punt returner. Smith returned one punt Sunday for nine yards. He tweeted it was his first punt return since high school. 

The 34-year-old Sproles seemed to be contemplating retirement after last season, his 11th in the NFL, but backed off this spring during OTAs.

"We're gonna see," Sproles said in June. "Right after we make the playoffs, then come back and ask me."
