The Big Piece fits in so well here.

Yesterday, Evan Turner joined a conference call with several local bloggers (we were not invited, likely because our Sixers coverage is, uh, honest), and the fine folks over at The700Level.com brought us this little gem from Turner about Ryan Howard:

"He said you gotta compare Philly to like a big brother…some days he's gonna like you and some days he might not like you, but he still loves you, and it's all about what you do and how you do things…but it's always having the support, no matter what."


Finally, an athlete who just "gets it."  Even when asshole bloggers write about his sprained ankle exploits at Dorney Park, it's because we care.

Now, about that 3 for 24 slump…
