Philly Sports Recap

Phils Rock Reds, 8-1

In the second inning Ryan Howard smacked a double to center and scored when newcomer Geoff Jenkins grounded into a double play. Another new guy, third baseman Pedro Feliz stroked a line single in his first Phillies at-bat, then doubled in the second run in the fifth. During the Phillies 7-run, fifth inning barrage of the Reds, Greg Dobbs belted out a 3-run shot for the Phillies inaugural home-run of the season.

Veteran Jamie Moyer, in his 22nd Major League season, allowed only one hit over three scoreless innings. He walked none and struck out three. Rule 5 Draftee Travis Blackley also worked three scoreless innings. He allowed one hit, but picked the runner off and also struck out two.

Last years rookie sensation Kyle Kendrick will take the hill today at 1:05 against the Shitsburgh Pirates.  Word is first round draft pick Joe Savery will also see some work.

Sixers Win Big, 101 – 89

The Sixers seem to be hitting their stride at exactly the right moment with the playoffs looming in their near future.  Notice I said “their near future”, thats right, I believe the Sixers can and WILL make the playoffs this year. 

Andre Miller and Bill Green both had huge games with 26 points each, Bill’s being a season-high.  Iggy also added 24, however had a rough night shooting the rock, only going 7-20 from the field. 

The Sixers have won seven straight at home with their last loss at the Wach coming to the Magic on Feb. 1 — and 8 of their last 10.  


I’ll be in attendance with some of the guys and the lady to see our Flyers take on the Sens from the best view in the house,  Luxury Suite 1** right behind the goal, its a beautiful thing.  The Senators seem to be in turmoil at the moment after two scoreless loses, prompting the firing of head coach John Paddock.  Flyers have also been reeling as we all now.  Should make for some angry hockey players, lots of fights, and some good fun.  I’m pumped.

Flyers Streak Hits 9

The streak continues, the winless streak that is.  Last night plenty mental mistakes contributed to the 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. In their last nine games the Flyers are 0-8-1 and falling out of the race fast.  As a matter of fact they have fallen to 10th in the Eastern Conference and last in the Atlantic Division. And to make matters worse, Simon Gagne says he’s definitely out for the regular season, most likely out for the playoffs but optimistic he can resume his career next season.Gagne confirmed on Thursday night that he will sit out the rest of the last six weeks of the season due to ongoing concussion symptoms.

Last night the Flyers failed to generate a power play, a first for the season and one which definitely goes down as the ultimate sign of ineffectiveness. 

Tomorrow the Flyguys host the Florida Panthers and look to turn things around.  They then hit the road for one game in Buffalo against the surging Sabres.  Thursday I will be in attendance for their home game against the Ottawa Senators from the luxury box bitches.

The New Kid on the Ice (Block)

20-year old Ryan Parent finally received the call up.  Parent has performed masterfully on the ice this season for the Phantoms warranting the call from the Flyers.  Truthfully they have some banged up defensemen at the moment; Braydon Coburn (ruptured artery), Derian Hatcher (knee), but Parent has played good enough for the Flyers to take a serious gander. 

There is a very good shot he will see the ice tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which would be a good test for the youngster, in just his second career NHL game.  His effort in the coming weeks could prove very meaningful in the decisions the Flyers will make before or at the trade deadline, which is approaching very fast (Feb 26).
