T.O. faces disaster

Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 8:54 PM
Cover 2’s all-time favorite wide receiver, needless to say Terrell Owens, is currently facing “financial disaster” according to GQ Magazine. Hey — we said he was our fave, not the best, the smartest or the most frugal. Owens is being swamped by the gigantic mortgage payments... Read more

Welcome to 2012

Tuesday, January 3, 2012, 11:47 PM
Am I the only guy the country who thinks that: 1. The Phillies are in major trouble for 2012? The last time I looked Ryan Howard was writhing on the ground with a torn achilles tendon and his 116 RBIs won’t be available until deep into the season. And Raul Ibanez’s 84 RBIs were let... Read more

Double Failure Doomed Reid

Monday, October 10, 2011, 1:51 PM
The fans organizing an October Revolution to oust Andy Reid are missing what has already gone down. What will get Reid out at the end of this season happened Sunday --- the Eagles' gutless failure to replace the craven Phillies as the town's darlings. Now both of them are shown to be losers. The...

The Cheeseburger goes the low comedy route

Sunday, October 9, 2011, 4:53 PM
Andy Reid is hilarious. Catch his new standup act at a comedy club near you! Failing rapidly as a head coach, the soon-to-be ex-coach is branching out into a whole new career! Can tap dancing and juggling be far behind? The possibilities for thigh-slapping Andy humor are endless: Why are the Phillies... Read more

This World Series run will be a bear!

Thursday, September 29, 2011, 12:27 PM
If the Phillies win the World Series this year they'll have earned it. No more playing out-manned Milwaukee, the choking Dodgers or the just-happy-to-be-there Rays. They had an easy projected path for a week or so, hoping to play the gagging Braves, the happy-to-be-there D'Backs and the ultra-chokers... Read more

Hitters, pitchers, the Phillies and Temple

Wednesday, September 28, 2011, 2:11 PM
Baseball awards, why you won't read a Phillies prediction here and a quick look at college football. There are two serious debates in major league baseball on the season's final day. One is whether Justin Verlander of Detroit should win both the AL Cy Young and MVP awards, a feat not accomplished... Read more

Welcome to State College, Eagles fans!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011, 12:19 AM
Welcome to the club, Eagles fans. Now you know how Penn State fans have felt for the last 13 years — the problem is the coach and he’s untouchable. Venting your spleen against Andy Reid may be fun and internally satisfying, but it doesn’t change a damm thing in the real world. ... Read more

Is Eight Enough?

Sunday, September 25, 2011, 12:24 AM
IT’S ABOUT TIME: It took tough guy Cole Hamels to say what every pitcher on the staff was thinking after Saturday’s craven display by the Phillies non-hitters. Hamels – perhaps the least likely guy in the clubhouse to call out his teammates – couldn’t stand it after the... Read more

Get some backbone, Big East!

Tuesday, September 20, 2011, 11:13 PM
Why doesn’t the Big East stop whining and show some backbone by going after Duke and North Carolina from the ACC? Instead of worrying about which football rats are going to flee the sinking ship, grab Kansas from the Big Leftover and build a basketball conference to rival Tobacco Road. If... Read more

End of the line for Donny Mack?

Tuesday, September 13, 2011, 8:58 PM
Less than three years removed from the NFC title game, Donovan McNabb looks more and more like a guy who’s at the end of the line. SI.com’s Don Banks said McNabb's massive fade is the worst he can recall. “Has anyone in recent memory suddenly lost more luster off their resume than... Read more
About this blog
Don McKee arrived at the white Inquirer building the same month (August of 1974) that Richard Nixon departed the White House, but claims no connection. He has covered Penn State football, the Flyers of Fred Shero, the Eagles of Dick Vermeil and backed up several beats. After 25 years covering high school sports in three cities and two states, he says the only teams he is allowed to root for are Conrad Weiser High School and Penn State, his two alma maters. LIKES: Straight talk. HATES: Spin doctoring and mindless devotion to conventional wisdom. Reach Don at dmckee@phillynews.com.
