Your Tuesday Morning Roundup

Welcome back to work (and school, for you more impressionable minds). The summer is over. Just nine more months until you can go outside again. Between now and then: cold, rain, ice, snow, perhaps a hurricane or two, entire football and hockey and basketball seasons, the 22nd Winter Olympiad, and countless Bob Costas poems about the human spirt and why sports are unfortunate reflections of our society.

You may hate yourself today, but I’m pumped. Sickeningly, the day after Labor Day is one of my favorite days of the year. I just slurp up the cascade of nonsensities that Costas hates so much.

I have my coffee, I showered today (not typical), and am ready for the long, cold grind that isn’t summer.

Let’s hit it!


But first, a word from our sponsors:

Cheesesteaks. Check out Jersey’s newest steak joint, Just Steaks, in the Merchantville Shopping Center. Ask for “The Crossing Broad”: $7 for a steak, fries and a bottled drink.

Crushes. My two, Darin Ruf and Cody Asche, will be at the Sports Vault in the King of Prussia Mall from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 21. Dom Brown– same place and times on September 7. Details and tickets here.

FantasyHost your fantasy football draft at the Philly Phaithful showroom in Northern Liberties:


TicketsPhiladelphia Eagles tickets for the Chiefs game start at $111.


The roundup:

The Eagles cut Danny Watkins and a whole slew of other players.

Watkins can now fight fires in the city where the heat is on. He was welcomed to Miami with a one-year contract today.

Hey, good thing thing Budweiser wasn’t charging $11 for beer at their own festival:

Lakewood BlueClaw Mitch Walding broke his rib getting off the clubhouse couch yesterday.

Worlds colliding: Lamar Odom has hired Robert Shapiro to fight his drunk driving charge. Shapiro, of course, defended O.J. with Robert Kardashian, ostensibly Khloe’s father.

Dennis Rodman is going back to North Korea to save the world. Maybe he can talk Kim Jong Un out of executing ex-girlfriend’s by firing squad. I feel like this is a nixed plot line from The Dictator (great movie).

Chip Kelly will be doing a segment with the WIP Morning Show every Monday at 8 a.m. This is a big deal, and something Andy would’ve never ever ever done. Like, ever.

Chickie’s and Pete’s won a lawsuit over the “Crab Fries.”

NBC-Comcast-mega-conglomerate-whatever-the-fuck: Both NBC Philly studios may move to the Comcast building.

Of course there will be a Jeremy Lin documentary:

Hamels had a rough bullpen session before the game last night. He jokingly chalked it up to bar hopping:

Hamels chalked up the rough bullpen session to a sore back he said he suffered while bar hopping during the road trip in Chicago. Yes, he was joking, adding that he and Sandberg “didn’t get into a fistfight” when the manager chose to take him out of the game after seven innings.

Jokes aside, Hamels said the pain in his back came from playing four straight day games and a hectic schedule that hasn’t granted the Phillies a day off since Aug. 15.

Watch the FOX Soccer channel die.

You can’t arrest me, I’m a Colts player.”

  3. yea funny thing about the beer, and even food. no one wanted beer or food because they were all rolling their face off. only thing anyone wanted was water. if you looked at everyone’s face there, you would see people tripping balls.

  4. It was $10 for a 16 oz Bud Light at MetLife Stadium on Saturday. This seems like a steal!

  5. Never mind the beer, how about $4.00 for bottled water. I bought a damn case at the supermarket last week for that much. Now THAT’S the real rip-off!

  6. Pete sued Tony’s?! What a dork. He should stick to knocking up underage Hubert’s girls and paying them off.
