Your Monday Morning Roundup: Please Dismantle Our Football Team Edition

Screen Shot 2011-11-14 at 9.00.33 AMPlease get lost

Good morning. I took it easy this weekend after last week’s craziness, that’s why you don’t see a 2,000 word post on why Andy Reid should join Joe Paterno (for very different reasons) in the unemployment line. That’s also the reason you don’t see another 500 words about why DeSean Jackson is an idiot. Or why the Eagles need to completely rebuild the organization from scratch– including coaches, jerseys, fight song and even their marketing campaigns. But that last post will come today or tomorrow.

A lot happened last week and over the weekend, so let’s get right to it.


A couple of quick notes:

– Next Sunday, Ilya Bryzgalov will be signing autographs at the BC Sports in the Deptford Mall. All the details and tickets can be found here.

– It is time to focus our attention squarely on the Flyers. Good news! They’re good. Better news– eat $1 hot dogs and down $3 Jag(e)r Bombs during all Flyers games and Drinker’s locations. List of locations, specials and menus here.

– Still plenty of time to help support the fight against cancer. If you buy a t-shirt from Philly Phaithful during the month of November, a portion of the proceeds will go to fighting it. Get one right here.


The roundup:

We had some popular posts last week that got lost in the shuffle. If you missed them, make sure to check out:

Kane Kalas makes a living playing poker in Costa Rica.

Creepy excerpts from old articles about Jerry Sandusky.

– Indications are that this is the Flyers’ Winter Classic jersey.

– Hunter Pence went on national TV with his cleaning lady doing dishes behind him.

– The School Philly put together a must-see video about the past week at Penn State. Caution: tear-jerker alert.

– We had one of the Penn State student reporters on our podcast last week. Be sure to check it out live every Tuesday and Thursday at 2:30 PM.

– The Economist (? yeah, we’re getting real today) says that 90% of the population in Venezuela believe that police have a hand in crimes, especially kidnappings. As you know, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramoz was rescued on Friday.

– Over-the-pants handjobs! This guy got one at the Alabama-LSU game.

– Our friend Ryan Miller got blown up the other night. Here he is whining (for realsies– epic, voice-quivering, my boyfriend is such an asshole whining).

– Lost in all of this, is that the Penn State basketball team doesn’t have many fans. [via @tarpey_15]

– Our friends over at The Team to Beat have a source who says that the Phillies have offered contracts to Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hamels. It’s not exactly Jim Salisbury reporting… but they’re good guys and have broken some news before. It’s worth a read.

– This Tweet from Vince Young to Jeremy Maclin on Friday is funny, if not confusing:

– Dr. Oz Tweeted a picture from the Eagles game yesterday. I don’t know about you, but any time you show me a pic of Dr. Oz and John Bolaris, I’m going to post it… and all the cougars are going to get damp:

– Jerry Sandusky still receives a pension from Penn State. Fun.

Reader Tom saw Alex Ovechkin at a bar this weekend:

Of course Ovi hits on average chicks.

  1. I don’t know who is the bigger tool- John Bolaris or that loser eagles fan who wears the shoulder pads & paints his face…
    – It’s a toss up

  2. Please, someone who has the game recorded, watch the replay of Vince Young’s handoff to McCoy after Vick gets hurt. Just under 6 minutes left in the game, Eagles in red zone. 3rd and 3. Perfect overhead replay after Shady is tackled. This may be the worst designed play I’ve ever seen. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU HAVE YOUR BEST RUN-BLOCKER PULLING TO BLOCK SOMEONE 3 YARDS IN THE BACKFIELD?

  3. Some other things that can leave…Spuds, and any mention of “the gold standard” by anybody who attended hebrew school.

  4. Wait, so Ovechkin’s a dirtbag because he wears jeans with holes in them and hits on average looking girls? I do not follow that logic.

  5. Wanna know something that’ll make Eagles fans want to cry? This can get worse, much worse. Next Sunday, the Birds face the Giants who are bound to be pissed after losing to the 49ers, then it’s New England which is a sure fire loss, lastly, a cross country trip to face Seattle, and after yesterday, there are NO gimmes on the rest of the schedule. By the end of the month, Fatboy Reid will be LUCKY to be 4-8! Frightening!

  6. So here’s my prediction of what’s going to happen in the next few months: the US will succeed in getting the IAEA to vote to report Iran to the UNSC again. This is simply because the IAEA acts by consensus not votes, and it will provide the necessary pressure to do this. There may be time delay imposed – for example the IAEA board will give Iran a certain time to “abide” by its “obligations” (which are made-up and don’t actually exist) before deciding to send the matter to the UNSC – but in the end the effect is the same.
