The penultimate game of the 2012 Washington Redskins regular season is this Sunday in Philadelphia against the Eagles. As always, for the second meeting of the year, I bring in @scrappled to talk about his beloved Iggles. You may remember him from the 17 different blogs he’s run over the years and his many appearances [...]
The last guest prognosticator of 2011 is @scrappled of Black Shoe Diaries, a Philly sports fan. He’s been here before. Let’s get it on!
WFY: If Michael Vick fought and executed your puppies would you favor irrevocable…Okay, that’s OLD news since Vick went to the Pro Bowl last year and signed a big contract so he’s [...]
The NHL’s decision to realign into 4 conferences with the Washington Capitals being placed into a conference with former Patrick Division rivals was welcomed enthusiastically by D.C. fans like me. Being assigned into the same conference as the New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Philadelphia Flyers, and Pittsburgh Penguins is something Caps [...]
This year, rather than just list the beat writers predictions like I did in past years, I figured I’d take it a step farther. I have compiled all the reporters on the Penn State Nittany Lions football beat and linked to their outlet, their blog (if applicable) and their twitter account. I have also included [...]
Over the weekend, the biggest Penn State blog went through a frameshift. Black Shoe Diaries founder Mike Hubbell announced he was moving on after many years helming the blog. I wish Mike well — he brought me into Blue White Roundtable back in its heyday and offered me a chance to write for the Maple [...]
Remember the Washington Redskins? They are the NFL team that plays around here. When we last saw them 15 days ago, head coach Mike Shannahan had just pulled QB Donovan McNabb from the game with 2 minutes left in Detroit because Rex Grossman was “better prepared” for the final drive of the game. That Grossman [...]
Your Phillies won the World Series(The Inky)! This is their second championship and first since 1980. It is also the city of Philadelphia’s first major championship since 1983 when the 76ers did it. Now we won’t have to hear about how Philly hasn’t had a parade anymore! We also won’t see yet another title go [...]
A while back, someone (likely a Pitt fan) posted a list of transgressions by Penn State players since 2002. It got a lot of play out there and was being referenced as definitive, but it was not even close. Run Up the Score! has exhaustively gone through that list and made the appropriate clarifications. [...]
Toll war building strength – CDTLast week the CDT had the latest on Pennsylvania’s I-80 tolls fiasco.
The latest twist is that state senator Scott Conklin announced that he wants to provide a $500 tax break for Pennsylvanians who regularly travel on the road. I wonder if that would be Constitutional.
I have to give credit to [...]
Eye in the sky catches naughty image at Harman-Geist field – The Standard-Speaker, Hazleton, Penna.Courtesy of Run Up the Score!, I have learned that the high school football field in my early “college town” was vandalized. Vandalism of high school football fields is not unusual except that this time it occurred when a satellite [...]
