Hockey? Roenick on Best Damn

Hockey? Roenick on Best Damn

Jeremy Roenick was on Fox's Best Damn Sports Show (windows media) talking about the potential of a 20-some game season as well as his mixed emotions about the Eagles since he grew up near Foxboro.  They also show a hoooorible commercial Jeremy was in playing a dentist.  Roenick thinks the lockout could lead to the end of the NHL as we know it. 

I am not going to lie, before the end of the Superbowl, I didn't care about anything but the Eagles, but I'm just starting to notice the lack of some Flyers action.  Apparently the NHL is saying this weekend will be the final deadline (ESPN) of final deadlines, finally.

And a quick Eagles point, in case you were wondering if Micheal Westbrook.. uh .. uh, I mean Brian Westbrook wants to return to the Eagles next season: he does.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, there was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Eagles and Cowboys will face off on Sunday Night Football, when we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
