Ron Glover’s 2010 NFL Mock Draft (Picks 1-7)

Posted in Blogroll on April 11th, 2010 by Ron Glover

The fallout from the Donovan McNabb’s trade last week was the equivalent of the Great Chicago Fire. As the rubble still smolders, expect Comcast SportsNet in DC to fan the flames as Comcast SportsNet and other media outlets in Philly look to keep the fire kindling far more than is tastefully permissible.

Nevertheless, the NFL Draft is fast approaching and the McNabb trade has made an impact on some early first round picks this year. Here are my first seven selections.

Behind the Play of Delfino, Jennings and Ridnour, Milwaukee Holds Off Philadelphia 95-90

Posted in Blogroll on April 11th, 2010 by Michael Tillery

Once upon a time, the Sixers/Bucks match up was one of the most competitive rivalries in the league. Billed as Julius Erving vs. his dynamic counterpart, Marques Johnson, this was a game never associated with boredom. The Sixers usually defeated the Bucks but ironically were the last team Dr. J faced; Milwaukee bested Philly in the 1987 playoffs.

Flash to 2010 and the tables turned. Milwaukee won 95-90 on the road in Philly Friday night…their 4th straight win and 3rd without Andrew Bogut to inch closer to locking up a higher seed in the playoffst. It was the Sixers 6th straight loss after winning two straight on March 24 and 26.

Fan Interview Bucks vs. Sixers

Posted in Blogroll on April 11th, 2010 by Michael Tillery

I love doing what I do. Especially when I come across something like this. Getting off the train, I walk across the parking lot and almost bump into a group of kids and an adult searching for a door into the facility…excited…wanting to get in. It’s not yet 5:30 and the Sixers/Bucks tips off at 7, so I figured we’d help each other out, pass the time and get some words to document their day at the Wachovia Center. This is the Dad in me. I get emotional looking at this picture. Mike Saunders…thanks for doing this. You made my day and also the day of the kids you teach as well. Mike is someone who is getting out there and doing things. He’s not talking about it. He is doing it and his is the example our children need to see…regardless of situation, color, race…all that. Thought it was so ironic to almost bump into the group. The kids didn’t have much to say. I could tell they were nervous but glad and appreciative to be interviewed nonetheless. The interview engraved a smile on my face the rest of the day and while handing Mike my card, I lose about 5 cards to what is a windy day. To see the kids running around trying to catch the stuff of a stranger confirmed what Mike said about his kids…that they are great. I give this to you to show and prove it’s not just about me. When I see sports, I see kids. The faces…the excitement…the joy. I don’t see scandals. I don’t see the soap opera, entertainment or even the grind of the season. I see the kid I once was. The most happiness I get from covering games is when Hip Hop…the Sixers mascot, the Sixers dancers and the Hair Raisers (acrobats) throw out T-shirts. I’m a sucker for how the kids respond and see mine in every one of their eyes. Hold your kids. Tell them you love them. They need to know. It helps them grow and makes life a little more tolerable even in the struggle. Be a soul model…please?
