Eagles Get Routed By the Steelers

The Eagles offense and defense looked putrid last night in a 24-14 loss to the Steelers. One week after they didn't show any signs of rust following the nearly 5-month long NFL Lockout, the first team defense looked like last year's swiss cheese defense.

Ben Roethlisberger marched the offense down the field multiple times and embarrassed Asante Samuel a touchdown pass to Antonio Brown.

Michael Vick turned the clock back to his Atlanta days and threw into double and triple coverage on a few occasions. The result was 3 interceptions.

The Birds clearly have some kinks to iron out and the good news is they have plenty of time to do so before the regular season starts on September 11 in St. Louis.

Christine O'Donnell Bashes Piers Morgan

Former Senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell is defending her choice to walk out of an interview with Piers Morgan the other day.

The anti-Gay Rights proponent said that Morgan's questions were very inappropriate and creepy. She's even going so far to say that Piers Morgan was sexually harrassing her! Correct me if I'm wrong, but she's a public person and one with extreme views on gay and lesbian rights. Morgan was well within his rights to drill her especially if she wanted to come onto his show to peddle her book.

This is another case of a right-wing extremist who wants to take away rights of certain individuals, but when they're called to the carpet they cry foul. Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann pulled a similar move on NBC's Meet the Press last week when David Gregory grilled her about her anti-gay views. Bachmann tried to say his questions were inappropriate and weren't pertinent to the interview.

And, that couldn't be further off the mark. Then again, religious extremists like Bachmann (who supports Dominionism) and O'Donnell aren't playing with a full deck.

Phillies Take Another Off the Diamondbacks

It was evident that there was going to be a serious rain delay as the clouds moved in during the second inning of last nights game between Arizona and the Phillies at The Bank.

Sounds of thunder and plenty of lightning filled the skies as the Phillies took an early 2-1 lead.

The game didn't restart until 10:00 when the storms finally passed. Ultimately the Phillies came out on top in a late-night affair winning 4-1.
