Villanova Sure can Rebound from a Loss, Can’t They?

1. Villanova Wildcats (#6 NCAA, 20-2, 8-1 Big East, 4-0 City Six) Last week: W @ Temple, W vs. Xavier Ok.  Now that we’ve established how foolish I was to think that Xavier was a player in the Big East, can we move on.  Clearly, this conference is all about Villanova and Creighton.  (People in … Continue reading

The Morning After the Morning After

Can Philadelphia Extend Brotherly Love to Host a Super Bowl? Remember when there was so much negative reaction to the possibility of a “cold weather Super Bowl”?  Remember how a foot of snow was dropped on the Philadelphia and New Jersey region causing the National Football League to panic? Yeah, how did that work out? … Continue reading

Villanova Wildcats Rebound & St. Joesph’s Flies Back to #2 Spot

1. Villanova Wildcats (#9 in NCAA, 18-2, 7-1 Big East, 3-0 City 6) Last week: W @ Marquette, W @ Georgetown It was only natural for the Wildcats to slide down the NCAA rankings like an unfortunate game of Chutes & Ladders.  I guess I was expecting a bigger slide after getting blasted by 40 … Continue reading

The Morning After the Morning After … Double Edition

Why was Macklemore’s Grammy win for Best Rap Album Such a “Travesty”? One performer is the “industry standard” of what you think of when you hear the word “rapper” — a young, African-American male from Compton, California that is signed to a major label.  The other (or others) are the minority in the rap community … Continue reading

The Morning After the Morning After

Was a Disappointing Royal Rumble just Part of the Process? The Road to Wrestlemania 30 in New Orleans on April 6th began over the weekend with the 2014 Royal Rumble, but the WWE may have to clear up a little traffic jam on the highway if the crowd displeasure in Pittsburgh over the results and … Continue reading

Nintendo Already On to the Next One

“On to the next one… Freeze! Somebody bring me back some money, please!” The lyrics from the Jay-Z hit “On to the Next One” must be playing at Nintendo headquarters in Japan.  There is a rumor floating around the interwebs that Nintendo has already begun moving forward to new console and handheld projects codenamed “Nintendo … Continue reading

Despite Epic Bombardment, Villanova still City 6’s Best

1. Villanova Wildcats (#4 in NCAA 16-2, 5-1 Big East, 3-0 City 6) Last week: W vs. DePaul, L vs. Creighton UPDATE: Creighton just hit another three pointer.  Villanova was cruising on five straight wins after a narrow loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.  The Wildcats exercised the Blue Demons by 26 only to … Continue reading

The Morning After the Morning After

Richard Sherman Shouldn’t be Hated for Wrong Reasons It takes a special kind of athlete to polarize and pull us as a society in and start talking about them.  Some athletes do it with their play on the field.  Some more unfortunate ones get a society talking as a result of some off the field … Continue reading

Phillies Re-Hiring of Manuel more Personal than Analytical

Five months ago, the Philadelphia Phillies said goodbye to Charlie Manuel — the man with a 780-636 record over nine seasons, five NL East titles, an NL pennant and the 2008 World Series Championship.  He walked away with a Wawa bag in his hand, and a front office job whenever he wanted. Yesterday, the Phillies … Continue reading

Villanova Tops Philadelphia City 6 Power Rankings once Again

1. Villanova Wildcats #6 in NCAA, 15-1 (4-0 in Big East; 3-0 in City 6) Last week: W at Seton Hall; W at St. John’s It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Villanova remains on top of the rankings, here.  Why would it?  They’re now sixth in the nation after beating Seton Hall and St. John’s last … Continue reading
