Has this been the greatest year in the history of Philly sports?

As I took my sabbatical this week, I was pondering this very matter. And wouldn’t you know, Bob Ford had a similar thought running through his head on Sunday. Though, to my credit, Bob is more broadly discussing the run of success Philly teams had between the 1973-74 and 74-75 championships for the Flyers, all the way through Villanova’s 1985 National Championship.

I’m getting a little ferklempt: Eagles lose options, Sixers stay put. Talk amongst yourselves.

Your daily Eagles fix focuses on one of the season’s major question marks – the linebacker trio. And how they read real good and stuff. Oh, and Eagletarian gives you watching points for tonight’s preseason game against the Jets.

The Pundit is starting to get juiced for College Football. Mark Schlabach over at ESPN gives him 25 more reasons to get hyped. And, in case you don’t read the whole thing, I’d just like you to see this:

T for Temple Uuuuuuu, Unnnnn-iversityyyyyy. Fight fight fight, for the cherry and the white, for the cherry and the white we’ll fight! (Editor’s note: The MAC is quaking in their less recruited boots).

Check back a bit later tonight, for Part 1 of the NFL preview.
