I think I may actually have a little time to throw out some links today … we'll see how far I can get. No time to waste.
-That Ovechkin fellow is pretty good I guess:
I caught the tail end of this game, and it was a horrible outcome for the Flyers. The Canadians were winning late in the third period, but Washington tied it and sent it to overtime, meaning both teams picked up at least one point. It didn't really matter who won for the Flyers, but we wanted someone to lose in regulation and not get any points. Turns out, Montreal got 1 point and the Caps got 2 with the shootout victory.
-Tyson Chandler, not headed to Charlotte. Chris Paul exhales.
-Marvin Harrison may be on his way out of Indy. That should give him plenty of time to shoot people in Philadelphia.
Perhaps a reunion with Donny? Probably not.
-Everyone's favorite ex-Sixer (or not) and Plymouth-Whitemarsh grad John Salmons is heading to Chicago in a trade.
Brad Miller heads to Chicago as well, while the Kings get Andres Nocioni, Drew Gooden, Michael Ruffin and Cedric Simmons. Um, I'm pretty sure Nocioni is better than Salmons and Gooden is about as good, if not better, at this point than Miller, but that's just me.
-Zach Randolph punched another former Sixer great, Louis Amundson.
Stop trying to kiss Zach, son.
-I wouldn't mind chillin with Stephon Marbury at a bus stop.
-Jarron Gilbert is a beast.
-Larry Bowa, still awesome:
“You mean the same guy who was never on time, out of shape and has one complete game? He has more stuff to worry about in the A.L. East than me. He has to worry about getting people out. He was never on time, was out of shape and never helped the kids out. Put that on the fucking dot-com. Put it in the headline.” [Ed. note: Done.]
“He never watched the game (when he was on the DL). Jason Schmidt watched the games. Nomar Garciaparra watched the games. Mark Sweeney watched the games. You go right down the line, everybody who was on the DL watched the games. But not him. He was out of there,” explained Bowa. “I’m in everybody’s corner when they work. When they’re lazy and don’t work. I could give a (well, you get the picture).”
-Don't ever forget, the Dr. was the original dunking ganster:
-Maalik Wayns was named a McDonald's All-American, via HHR.
-Meet Penn State's new kicker:
Also, Andre Miller got hurt last night—according to Dei Lynam during the game, it's a strained calf—so that's not good. But, the Flyers finally play again tonight, as they take on the Sabres at the Wachovia Center.
