If you can't get enough BoopStats and/or you live, eat and breathe Eagles, check out the main sports Eagles training camp page each and every day the Birds are at Lehigh.

Among the many items to allow you to follow along every day of camp will be a quick-off BoopStat concerning something Eagles-like. Here is today's:

The Eagles were 5-1 vs. the NFC East last season, 1-5 against the rest of the conference.

We'll make it a point to list the entire week's set of those each weekend, in case you miss some, but it's always better to check them out daily and impress your friends with these rather important and useful and often-times mind-numbing Birds factoids.

If you've got one to contribute, send us an email.



About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
