Ode to Phillies

Thursday, October 22, 2009, 5:00 PM
I wrote a little ditty for the Inquirer's Eagles version of Talkin the other day, but the editors must have deemed it newspaper-unworthy and cut it from the e-mail exchange.

Every time a disgraced NFL player emerges from prison, rehab or the doghouse of another team, the Raiders --with just reason -- are assumed to be a likely landed spot for said player. Oakland owner Al Davis has handed out his fair share of second chances. When Michael Vick was released from prison... Read more
