Coming to a NBA city near you

The NBA season is about six weeks way, but John Wall fever is starting to get a hold of everyone. The OTWT Maryland bureau send this photo earlier today from a Foot Locker. I know he has talent but this shirt is terrible and no one should ever wear it.

Professional Tailgating: There goes a piece of my tailgating soul

Sometimes it's time to move on, but moving on can hurt. After weeks of waiting it finally happened, the tailgating car, a 2002 vw golf, was traded in as part of a deal for a new car for the family.

The car was getting up there in miles and in memories. It has seen its fair share of sporting events, most of them documented on this site. It went to Rutgers for the famous Louisville game and saw a bunch of years of season tickets. Its been to countless baseball games, Eagles games, and seen friendlies involving Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and two USMNT games.

Its helped me lug my golf clubs to a variety of courses around the state including Blue Heron Pines, Echo Lake, and the Architects Club. It also assisted with a trip to North Carolina to play a variety of different courses that had hosted USGA events.

I'm sure the new tailgating car, a honda accord, will produce the same type of memories but its always hard saying good bye to your first love and that is exactly what I had to do :(

It would have made a great epic movie

Wow, where do you start with the Eagles. They lost, 27-20 to the Packers, and that is the most important thing. But after one game there are still more questions then answered.

Is Kolb the right guy? Don't know because he left the game with an injury and was terrible before leaving.

Will they be able to run the ball? Don't know Weaver is done for the year.

What is Mike Vick's roll on this team? It might be a gimmick player or it could be starting quarterback.

Is the defense any good? Bradley got hurt again and while they look good, I don't know if part of that was from the Packers shutting down a little.

The one thing we did learn is that both Brandon Graham and Nate Allen held their own on defense and look like they are going to players on defense. Allen will go down in Eagles history of the Donovan McNabb player.

This game reminded me of the NFC Title game of a couple of years ago against the Cardinals, fall behind earlier and then fight to come back and just come up short. So I guess there is one good thing, we get to do it all over again next Sunday against the Lions.
