But, in the lime light of this Dawkins fiasco, a lot of things happened in our wonderful town over the past day or two.
First, Phillies news.
After losing to Toronto Thursday and the Reds yesterday to start Spring Training 0-3, the Phils routed the Rays today at Brighthouse Networks Field in a rematch of the World Series 12-5 after scoring five runs in the first inning.
Also, Adam Eaton has officially been released by the ball club. WOO-HOO!
Now, the 76ers.
They defeated the Knicks at the Garden yesterday 108-103, but lost at home tonight to the Magic 106-100.
Now, the Flyers.
They lost to the Canadiens at home last night in overtime 4-3. My boy Scottie Upshall got a very questionable goalie interference penalty called on him, allowing the Habs to go on the power play.
Also, Glen Metropolit and Osi Vaananen were put on waivers, while Danny Briere is looking to come off the "schnide" as he was activated today and defenseman Nate Guenin was brought up from the Phantoms and Claude Giroux and Lasse Kukkonen were sent down the Phantoms.
Wow, that was a lot.
