Well in case you havent heard, our boy Hank Baskett is getting hitched to playmate Kendra Wilkinson. Hank and Kendra are Getting Hitched June 27th at the Playboy Mansion and guess who will be giving her away.
You guessed it, Hugh Heffner himself.
Hey guys, she also has a spread in this upcoming February issue of Playboy so be sure to stop by your local smut mart to grab a copy.
This begs the question:
How many Eagles do you think will attend now that the ceremony is at the Mansion? Most likely ALL.
And if it were at some lame-o South Philly joint? Significantly Less then that.
Brian Westbrook sat out Wednesday’s practice, but he’ll certainly play against the Arizona Cardinals in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. Expect him to take the rest of the week off from actual practice and focus more on getting his aching muscles and sore knees ready for gametime come Sunday. According to #36 himself:
I will start.
Birds running back Brian Westbrook did not practice Wednesday and might be limited for the rest of the week. Westbrook is nursing a badly sprained right ankle and swollen left knee, said Wednesday that he probably won’t practice much this week. Instead he will prepare for the Eagles’ divisional-round playoff game against NFC East rival, the New York Giants with an intensive regimen of weightlifting, stretching and running in a pool.
Westbrook said he will start against the Giants on Sunday, but only after taking a round of anti-inflammatory medication on Saturday night and Sunday morning to get the pain and swelling to a tolerable level. Look for B West to torch the G-Men as he usually does.
YOUR Philadelphia 76ers host Dwight ‘Superman’ Howard and the Orlando Magic tonight from the Wachovia center coming to you live at 7:30 PM on ESPN and Comcast Sportsnet.
I will be in attendance in a lovely luxury box thanks to my wonderful girlfriend and her father as the Sixers look to move above .500 again this season. Should be a great game between two of the best bigs in the East in Elton and Dwight. Pretty excited to see Dwight in person as it will be my first time ever, not to mention Elton as I have yet to make it down to a game this season. Hopefully this will be the first of many.
Enjoy the game, I know I sure will and everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the food, football and beers. I will be back and ready to post come Monday morn barring an unforeseen sports happenings that I need to rant about.
LET’S GO EAGLES for fucks sake! Arizona Cardinals at the Birds, tomorrow at 8:15 pm on NFL Network.

Chad Ocho Cinco is crediting Donnie McNabb with helping him adjust his attitude during training camp.
Ocho Cinco, who had spent the offseason criticizing Bengals management and proclaiming to the media that he would appreciate a trade out of Cincy, said McNabb helped convince him to put his teammates first and forget about his personal disappointments.
Ocho Cinco, calling McNabb a close friend, said McNabb reminded him that while he might feel miserable, millions of people would gladly trade places with him.
God I wish we coulda signed this guy. Imagine Chad running flys and catching Donnie’s bombs. Hey Chad, get back to complaining this off-season and come help us out in the NFC East. We the fans WILL LOVE YOU and show you all the support you need. PS, send me a jersey.
Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes, Brandon Jacobs blasted in two more and the Giants did just enough to beat the Birds 36-31 and positioned themselves for another postseason run. The Eagles who rank 14th in the NFL in rushing defense at 104 ypg allowed, found themselves getting murdered up front and allowed 219 rushing yards to the division foe G Men. The consistent ability to run opened up the passing attack for Eli who was able to his find receivers all night.
The Eagles had the ball at their own 45 with 1:55 left, but B West couldnt convert a 3rd and 3 on a sweep to the otuside. And was then stopped on the following play by Chase Blackburn on fourth-and-1. Andy Reid has no power run game, and his play calling on 3rd and 3 acknowledges it. I’m really starting to get sick of tired of some of the moronic things he has been doing lately.
The Giants (8-1) are now two games ahead of the Redskins and three in front of the Eagles (5-4) and the Cowboys. New York is 3-0 against the division, the Eagles, 0-3.
After giving up a 90 yard bomb to delinquent wideout Koren Robinson on the Seahawks first play from the scrimmage, the Birds D got their shit together and put together a shut out the rest of the way.
Donovan McNabb rebounded from his usual ball in the dirt and early throwing problems to complete 28 of 43 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns. B West carried the ball 20 times for 61 yards rushing.
Philadelphia (5-3) won their third in a row to stay two games behind the first-place New York Giants in the NFC East, and move ahead of Dallas (5-4) for third in the division. The Eags get the New York Football Giants next week on nationally televised Sunday Night Football at 8:15 PM ET with AL Michaels and John Madden.
Eagles All-Pro guard Shawn Andrews had surgey on his lower back yesterday will be out at least 6 weeks, with a possibility he’s done for the season.
Andrews had surgery to repair a herniated disc. The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins, who just also happened to operated the same procedure on fellow Eagles offensive lineman Tra Thomas in 2005.
The Eagles had sent Andrews to a number of specialists, trying to locate the cause of the problem. Watkins was the fourth opinion on the injury. Before Andrews visited Watkins early last week, coach Andy Reid said the team had not seen progress in his recovery after minimal improvement shortly after the injury.
Shawn has not played since injuring his back at Dallas in Week 2. Max-Jean Gilles will remain in the lineup in Andrews’ absence.
Eagles’ coach Andy Reid revealed Monday that superstar running back Brian Westbrook fractured two ribs in the opening quarter of the Eagles loss to the Redskins on Sunday as reported earlier by my cohort, the 215 Sportsguy. His status for Sunday’s game in San Francisco is uncertain at the moment but dont worry, we expect his little bro Byron Westbrook to release his diagnosis on Wednesday.
If it were my call; Do NOT play him. We all realize that the Birds have already dug themselves into a hole, but unless they feel they are already in panic mode there is no reason to trot him out there. And like the Bears match up (which is actually making me rethink this whole train of thought, shit put him out there, we’re already tanking) if the Eagles cannot beat the 49ers WITHOUT Brian why was there all of this Super Bowl or bust talk coming out of Lehigh?
