Spadaro on Owens

Spadaro on Owens

I feel like Dave Spadaro is hit or miss, but it is hard to argue he has some insider information on almost everything Eagles.  I think his job would be rather fun.  He basically blogs about the Eagles, but a bit more professionally.  He also seems to have the most access of any media person ever.  So he tends to know what he is talking about.  Spadaro today on the Owens "non-story":

This is absolutely one of the most disappointing stories I've ever witnessed. A player who came to Philadelphia, who begged to come to Philadelphia, who everybody wanted to come to Philadelphia came to Philadelphia and enjoyed one of the most glorious seasons in the history of this franchise and this wonderful sports city.

And now he's just messing it all up.

Why? What for? This is a non-story from every angle except from the Owens camp. The Eagles aren't going to give the guy a new contract. I will tell you this -- and this is my opinion and maybe I get fired over saying this -- but I truly believe this: The Eagles would rather go 0-16 than yield to Owens in this situation.

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.
