Real News: Flyers Fire Stevens, Hire Laviolette

Ah, the old switcheroo. The Flyers have parted ways with head coach John Stevens today after the team suffered through two consecutive shutouts and have replaced him with former Hurricanes and Islanders coach Peter Laviolette.

Stevens was 120-109-34 since taking over the team in 2006 -- the same year he led them to the Stanley Cup finals. Unfortunately, the flyboys have looked mediocre thus far posting only a 13-11-1 record for 27 points and standing on the outside of the early playoff picture.

The Flyers were granted permission by the Carolina Hurricanes to contact Laviolette after he was fired by the team on Wednesday. Laviolette is the winningest American-born NHL coach of all time.

Experience Ochocinco In App Form

The Chad Ochocinco Experience, the newest and most revolutionary iPhone app is now available. I’ve gone ahead and actually downloaded this to my phone to personally check it out and review it.

The verdict? It’s pretty damn cool.

Who's On Third? Placido Polanco!

Yes, his head is incredibly bulbous and, no, I don't know why. But Placido Polanco is your new third baseman whether you like it or not.

Dolla Dolla Bills Yall - Week 13

It's Thursday already and time for another round of NFL spread picks.  The NFL Network is showcasing yet another gem tonight as the Jets take on the Bills - in Canada.  Seriously, do they put the least appealing games on Thursday on purpose?  Shouldn't they try and make this at least somewhat appealing, you know... for ratings purposes or something?

So since you won't bother watching that... have fun getting loaded at your local drinking establishment this evening! 

Picks after the jump...

Placido Polanco: Really?!?!?!?

Why the fuck is his head so big?

It appears, that pending a physical, the Phillies will be signing Placido Polanco to a three-year, $18 million contract. He would be taking over third base duties for the Phillies. I can't say that I'm thrilled, but I will save my review of the deal until it's actually been signed.

Until then, the question remains...Why the fuck is his head so big?

Fun With Eldrick

Tiger Woods, whose life's been flipped, turned upside down over the last week – has dealt with injuries from a car accident, allegations of his wife going ghetto on him, and countless women coming forward alleging Tiger is nothing more than a prowling playa. And let’s not forget the damage to his reputation and credibility the longer this thing goes along.

Having said all that, online sportsbook has decided to release some interesting/funny prop bets on their site in regards to all this. Sure didn’t waste any time, did they?

And as a bonus after the jump - a must-see video released by the Chinese showing a CGI version of what might've happened during the night of Tiger's accident. Those guys can do anything!

Called It: vol. 2

This needed to be brought to your attention. In last week’s NFL spread picks, we went 11-4-1 and are picking winners at 57% clip.  Do you know how good that is?  No?  Well read this:
Now to be a successful handicapper you have to make up for the vig on the losing bets so to breaks even you need to have a win percentage of 52.4 percent. If you can achieve a long time winning percentage of 55 percent it is considered very good. Anything over 60 percent is excellent however most bettors don't sustain this percentage over the long run. []
And I'm just some random dude picking, not a real handicapper.

Iverson Back = BLINGEE TIME

Q: Why did I spend 30 minutes at work using a website geared towards pre-teen girls?
A: The Answer.

Blingee after the jump.

He's Baaaaaaaaaack!

Allen Iverson is back. AI informed the Sixers this morning that he will be returning to the Sixers after a two and a half year absence. He will make his return on Monday against the Nuggets.

The Day the NFC overtook the AFC

The complete domination of the Bill Belichick-coached Patriots by the New Orleans Saints on Monday night was a signifying moment in the NFL.

The Pats had no answer for the Saints' offense. The precision passes from Drew Brees, the size of the Saints receivers, the punch of the ground game -- the Patriots young defense weren't prepared or physically able to stop New Orleans. On defense, the brand new starting corners -- especially Mike McKenzie -- stepped up like Channing Tatum and held Randy Moss and Wes Welker to under 100 yards combined. This was a statement by the class of the NFC to the league and to anyone paying attention at home: the AFC is no longer the stronger conference.  Pictorial evidence!

Sixers to Iverson: Ball's In Your Court

Allen Iverson can be a Sixer again if he wants, he just has to sign. According to the Sixers have offered Iverson a non-guaranteed contract, something that may be a deal breaker for the All Star guard.

Real News: Eagles Ink Celek

ESPN is reporting Brent Celek and the Eagles have agreed to a six-year contract extension.  The deal is expected to be finalized today and announced later this week.

Six years is a long time, but we all know that NFL "contracts" mean nothing anyway. 

Perfect Seasons?

Can both the Saints and Colts go undefeated? Well, of course not, that's impossible. Will this post serve as a jinx to make sure neither does? Yes, absolutely. Is that Mr. Perfect? Sure is!
