On Friday the 49-22 Miami Heat host the 37-34 Philadelphia 76ers in what could be a playoff preview.

Going into their third regular season matchup The Heat are up 2-nothing on the Sixers, but this time of year it's all about playoff seeding. Right now Miami holds the 3-seed sitting 2 1/2 back the first place Chicago Bulls and 1 1/2 behind the Boston Celtics. The Sixers are currently holding the 6th seed.

If the playoffs started on Friday this would be Game 1.

Meanwhile, In Russia...

Can you imagine the boom in business that parking decks/lots/meters would have if this happened here? You could charge like $50 an hour and people would have to pay it. I mean really, who can afford to have their car thrown out?

The parking is $50. That's too much, is it? Oh, what’s that you say? You’re going to take a chance and park on the street? That’s fine, but if the crain-o-matic-car-destroyer comes by you’re fucked.

Luis Castillo Impressive in Debut


When the best compliment Charlie Manuel can give you is that you looked "in shape" you might want to consider showing up earlier to BP.

On Wednesday former Mets second baseman Luis Castillo made his spring training debut with the Phillies. In the 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Castillo grounded out twice, popped out once, going 0 for 4. No one was expecting a lot from him immediately and the Phillies have seven more spring training games after Wednesday where he can put forth his best effort to piss all over the memory of the late Chase Utley.

never forget.

The guy to keep an eye on though is Michael Martinez. The energetic Rule 5 pick has been on (spring training) fire at third base, and he can play three infield positions and centerfield. With Placido Polanco set to expire like Stop-and-Shop lunchmeat you may want see if Martinez is still available on the waiver wire in your NL East-Only Spring-Training Fantasy League.

We're Still Here Boys and Girls

So are Mario and Luigi. TheWizWit is gonna stay strong, so keep coming back for the same old ridiculousness that we've been doing for the past 18 months. Yes, we'll be contributing content and hilarity to Barstool Sports Philly (check that shit out by the way, our boy Maurice is killing it over there), but we'll be keeping it real and fresh over here too.

Peace, love and Cliff Lee.

Oh, it's like that?

On Tuesday Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver appeared on Comcast SportsNet and compared the current relationship between the NFL owners and players as "modern-day slavery".

Early Wednesday Weaver phoned in to 610 WIP to retract his statements and issue an apology. He also plugged his Twitter feed which has been in damage-control-overrdrive for the past 24 hours. "I'm sorry for those words I used," Weaver posted on his Twitter. "If I offended anyone, please forgive me."

If you don't believe he's sorry, stop by his twitter and take a drink for every apology.

For those of you who forget what happened the last time Leonard Weaver was trying his hand at "the slave trade" here's an image of his week 1 injury vs the Packers during the 2010 season.

Picking cotton is about all he can do now.

Weaver has been optimistic about coming back to play this season despite his kneecap still being lodged in his taint. Which is why he may have felt the need to become vocal about getting paid again.

His racial outcry is so far the third during the lockout comparing the owner/player relationship to slavery. The first two coming from the Washington Redskins' own Albert Haynesworth, and Fantasy Football's own Adrian Peterson.
