Sixers can blame themselves

Here is the column that I wrote for Friday’s paper. While 16 teams compete in the NBA playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers sit at home left to stew over how a season that started with such promise unraveled so dramatically. It would be easy to blame all the woes of a 34-48 campaign on Andrew Bynum, [...]

The prospects of the Flyers, Sixers

One team is underachieving, while the other is overachieving, but even as the Sixers entered the All-Star break losers of five straight and the Flyers continue to play uninspired hockey both teams are in line to be part of the postseason. That’s not really a shock. The Sixers, who made the playoffs last season, lead [...]

Blog? Who me? That’s right me!

So it’s been more than two months since my last post. Yikes. Other media colleagues of mine blog daily or at least several times a week. I can’t promise that (and even if I did would you believe me anyway?), but I will do my best to keep up with blogging more, both here and [...]

Breaking my silence

Has it really been over a month since my last entry? Seems so. I guess now would be a good time to to touch base on a few things. First, high school basketball has just about consumed me this winter (when the snow and ice or a combination of both have allowed it to). On [...]

Following through

A while back I promised to be more diligent in my blogging and while I haven’t gotten the once-a-week thing down yet (forgive me, it was a tad slow at work as we progressed from winter to spring sports) I feel I’m doing a better job than before. So for all those Phillies fans who [...]

It’s been too long

I don’t know what to do. Every time I start a blog like this – I apologize for not writing more often, ask for your forgiveness and then just go on to not blogging regularly again. You’re tired of it, I’m tired of it and well, we’re all tired of it. So seriously, honestly and [...]

Back again

I’ve returned with some quick thoughts. Like always, I’ll start local, with two intriguing matchups in the Mountain Valley Conference boys and girls basketball finals Friday. The girls game, which tips at 6 p.m. at Pleasant Valley, pits defending MVC champion Pocono Mountain West against East Stroudsburg South, which topped the Panthers in both regular-season [...]

This and that

With all this wonderful weather (or non-weather I guess) coming in and schedules being juggled I thought this would be a good time to catch up on a few things. First off, congratulations to East Stroudsburg South’s Carly Gallagher, who etched her name in two more categories Tuesday night. With a season-high 27 points against [...]
