Posted in Blogroll on April 27th, 2009 by Michael Tillery

Crazy weekend in sports. Actually got to check it all out as a fan on the road. Had a great time, recharged the batteries and ate some great Texas rib eye, but now it’s time to get it. After spending most of the day on a plane, Anthony Gilbert scooped me and we barely made it for the Game 4 tip off at the Wachovia Center. I’ll have a Sixers/Magic recap up on SLAMonline shortly. Hope you all had a great weekend and mos def have a great week.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Triple 5 Soul speaks up and the Eagles go offensive in draft. We’ll see how that works out. If they fail next season, he will get called out by the media here. Trust me on that. (

Eagles trade for Ellis Hobbs. I’m impressed. (

Winners and losers in draft. Uh…how the hell did Michael Crabtree fall to #10 and Mark Sanchez rise to #4. Great pick for the 49’ers. Gimme Josh Freeman in a second over all those quarterback cats. Absolutely nothing to do with race. (Mercury News)

Kiss blames NY for the downfall of rap. (SOHH)
