And it's "its" not "it's."
Nuns taught me that.

Atheists are not rabid; many are clear thinking, logical, and only seek the truth.
And they know how hard it is to learn in spite of the brain washing of their youth.
Many are loving, caring and considerate people who are happy to be alive, and are good because they love humanity, not because they fear a beat down by an "all loving" whatever.

Yours is one of the dumbest posts I've ever read on this site, and that is saying quite a bit.
Bank overdraft fees creeping up again, consumer monitors say

jusyablogger-- more aptly named "justarightwingwatercarrier."
Not every conservative agrees that big banks should be able to charge ever- increasing fees for more automated services just to pay the CEO of the month a heftier bonus.

Exactly. Take your money out of big banks and put them in a local credit union. Big banks are blood suckers for the little guy. I'm not condoning over drafting an account, but big bank fees are usurious.

No, guys like this didn't get Trayvon Martin killed. It was guys who carry concealed weapons and act like a wannabe cop and follow (and scare) a kid coming back from the local store with skittles and an iced tea.
I'm white, and I saw my white neighbor wearing a hoodie today. I didn't stalk him, or presume that he was on drugs and up to no good.
There are bad people everywhere--and just as I try not to look at fat, white male suburbanites with goatees wearing big goofy khaki shorts below their knees as a bunch of drunks who will sucker punch you if you are wearing an out-of-town sports team's jerseys, you should release your stereotypes of people in hoodies as well.

Yeah, ekw555, blame the ones who were robbed. They were probably just asking for it.

Please, Phillies Fans, don't let this stupid article affect you! The writer is just trying to create a fake storyline for when the Nationals come to town! Watch for it-- what an easy, prepared article.
I'll be cheering Werth's first at bat, just like everyone else in the stands.

Cowboys, Redskins lose; McNabb benched

You do understand that Reid coached in 4 of those ProBowls as a result of his team losing the Championship Game. That's how it works: The losing coach of the AFC & NFC Championship Game coaches the ProBowl that year. The losing coach is also allowed substitutions/add-ons to the team, which, I believe, is how Donovan got to play in at least 3 ProBowls. So let's put that "5" ProBowls to rest.
I do agree that Donovan was "clicking on all cylinders," as he likes to say, in his first years in the NFL; as an Eagle fan I will always cherish and appreciate him and his talent for those years. But he had a short life span that was well-masked by Andy Reid's and Jim Johnson's schemes and talents.
And now he has been unmasked. Shanahan is pretty astute, and figured it out quickly; and unlike Reid, Shanahan has no loyalty to the guy.
I wish McNabb well, and thank him for what he gave Philly when he was motivated/interested. I guess too much money understandably makes people comfortable. Comfortable doesn't win football games.

They both look like losers. To posters Mike, Mamula (wow, that's weird) and six speed: It doesn't matter whether you boys find the wife attractive. Apparently, some loser with a dorky beard and big ears did, and now they are both looking at some serious time.

Looks like Stephen "Ears McMoron" Shappell will be doing lots of time now that his BGFF (best girl friend forever) dimed him out under questioning and told police where her husband's body was buried. Hope he found a good hiding spot or a good lawyer-- 'cause his life is over.

About that rumor

I think the rumor was put out there by the NY media. They know the Mets need all the help they can get, and the Yankees might also benefit from putting the Phightin's off their game. They're trying to mess with the Phillies' heads 'cause they know the Phils are coming back to retake the title this year!!! Ignore it, and PLAY BALL!!!!
Kolb wants his chance but will be a 'team player'

realtruth, the defenses Donovan benefited off of from 2002-2007 were tremendous. Best in the entire league. Yeah, players dropped passes, and I don't recall seeing receivers lay out for Donovan's passes like Deion Branch did for Brady in that AFC Championship game vs. the Steelers. I'm not a hater. But dropped passes come with the territory. There may also be less dropped passes if they were thrown better. The only real reason I want a change is because Donovan's time has come and gone; he's only going down from here. He wasn't clutch, no matter how many regular season wins he had against a re-building NFC East (which the were for most of the 2000's). There's no race agenda (what are you, 50 years old or more?)-- I'll take Steve McNair (RIP) over McNabb any day. That guy was clutch!! Kolb could turn out to be a washout, but I hope not. I really hope the Eagles wouldn't draft a guy so early who couldn't throw the ball more than 15 yards downfield. I am not an Eagles coach or strategist, I don't have all the information the team has. I trust that they will make the right decision. I am an Eagle fan unencumbered with contractual issues and draft picks and media looking for a story. I am also a patient person, but I do recognize futility when I see it.

No one is saying that all of the Eagles' failures were due to McNabb. I think this is a discussion of when Kolb should get a chance to start, for whatever team. McNabb was good, but not clutch in the big games. I remember he threw back to back pics in the endzone in SB XXXVIII, the first one negated by penalty. Those were two terrible passes. Let the country laugh at Eagle fans who think McNabb's time has come and gone; they haven't been watching every play of every Eagle game for 11 years, just the Sportcenter highlights.
Mon., 02/01/10 - 13:19 PM
I thought Kolb looked pretty good against Baltimore last year; he was moving the ball down the field with precision. He got picked off in the endzone by future HOFer Reed (who also picked off Manning 2x in the playoffs this year). In the Saints game, one of Kolb's picks was because Celek stopped his route short instead of taking the correct angle on the aggressive DB; Kolb had properly thrown the ball to Celek before he turned. Celek was probably used to finishing his route, turn, face Donovan, and wait for the ball to be thrown. I think Kolb might turn out to be pretty good, for whatever team gives him a chance. Donovan's got a great long ball, but his inacuracy on the short passes have really stopped a lot of drives early, and prevented receivers from catching the ball in stride.
Harry's favorite Whitey story

I'll never forget a game Whitey and Harry called sometime in the 90's; I forget who the Phillies were playing, but it was somewhere in the midwest. In the first inning or so, Whitey says it's gonna rain-- he's an old farmboy and he can smell it in the air. Harry and the listeners believe Whitey, of course, and we all therefore expect an eminent rain delay. As the game goes on, Whitey sticks to his story of how he can smell the rain coming. Well, the rain never came. As the innings go on, Harry starts teasing Whitey about the lack of rain-- something must be wrong with his nose. So it's the 9th inning, and Harry's calling the plays, but adds something like, "Although you could hardly see the catch he made through the torrential downpour out there." I almost drove into a tree, I was laughing so hard! Thanks for the great memories, Harry and Whitey. I don't think I can comprehend right now how much I'll miss you.
