Is it just me or does the ice look like it is crying? Probably just me.

Sports Betting Updates
Referencing ESPN twice in a day is like mortal sin to me, but when news like this comes out of nowhere, I can't bring myself to ignore it.
Henry Abbott of ESPN.com is reporting that according to sources, there are conversations to sell the Philadelphia 76ers and that a deal is "imminent".
Um, I had no idea that the Sixers were for sale, did you?!
If such a deal were to happen, the team would be sold to Joshua Harris, described in this piece as a "New York-based leveraged buyout specialist." Comcast Spectacor has owned the team since 1996, when Spectacor merged with Comcast (thus… the name… not rocket science, people).
This is indeed big news if it does go down, but diehard Sixers fans shouldn't worry too much. It doesn't look like the team will go anywhere in the event of a sale:
Comcast-Spectacor also owns the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers, and the Wells Fargo Center where both teams play. The company would continue to own and operate the arena with the Sixers as a tenant, according to sources.
Nothing has been announced or made official as of this writing. Abbott is the only writer reporting this story at the moment. More to come if or when it develops.
In an effort to be your one stop shop for all Philly sports tickets, we now have tickets for Villanova games at The Well.
Nova still has four games left to play in South Philly, beginning tomorrow against Georgetown. Tickets have gone up 46% this week, but there are still some good deals out there. 200's Center is the cheapest tiqzone, with 44 tickets available for an avg of $52 a seat. The cheapest seat in the zone (and the game) is $42.
Trust me, it's more exciting than the Sixers.
Get 'em here.
