Ah yes, the three day period in which there are no professional games. Except the All-Star game, because that counts now. This is the week where we turn things over to the national folks. Tonight, Chris Berman will misjudge home run balls at an alarming rate. Tomorrow, Joe Buck will sell us everything Taco Bell and Chevy (love you, Chevy, thanks for the tailgate car). And on Wednesday, the ESPYs- yay meaningless awards. For most local outlets this will be a time to gather… regroup, if you will. For us? Probably dick jokes and quizzo. Read on.
Couple of quick notes:
Thursday night. 8 P.M. Drinker's Tavern in Old City. I'll be hosting a sports movie quizzo. Free to attend. Beers? Rolling Rock ponies are a dollar. We're going to have a special Major League round. Prizes too.
We told you about this on Friday. This kid – dork – turned $60 into $20,000 playing fantasy baseball with our partners from Draft Street. You can do the same. Drop $20 into your account, enter code crossing25 when you do, and they'll give you an extra $25 to play with. That's $45 to play Draft Street's nightly fantasy games. Not a bad deal. Play here.
DeSean Jackson is a jerk.
Cliff Lee's home run, covered front to back. Or home to home, if you will.
Tiger Woods will be holding a press conference today at 11 A.M. This could be big news.
Eagles tryout anthem singers.
Bill Lyon, legend, waxes poetic about Brad Lidge.
The Flyers and Sixers are holding a huge blowout sale on Sunday, July 17th on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center. Something tells me they will be clearing out Richie and Carts jerseys. But they will have Bryz and Jagr apparel, most likely not discounted.
This is old, but here's video of Brian Wilson singing with Keenan Cahill. It's mesmerizing.
Kate Middleton upskirt? ZOMG yes and please.
I'm thinking of picking of NCAA Football '12 tomorrow. Can anybody talk me out of it?
