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

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

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

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

Flyers Will Continue to Fly High Believe me.  I understand why you’d be upset, downtrodden and possibly furious after this past weekend as it pertains to your Philadelphia Flyers. Now that the Eagles season has ended, Philadelphia is essentially a hockey town until March or April — except me because I don’t really get into … Continue reading

Philadelphia City 6 Power Rankings — January 7, 2014

Now that we’ve settled that, let’s focus on the end of another Philadelphia Eagles season.  The Eagles lost … Continue reading
