Lesley’s Last Word
I was in Pittsburgh yesterday for the Phillies opener in front of a record crowd at PNC Park. It was a record crowd in large part thanks to Phillies fans who made the trip.
After months and months of criticism Flyers goalie Ilya Brizgalov seems to have found himself… or at least found a way to win. And then comes the injury.
Ryan Howard is getting better. He was taking ground balls again for a second straight day without the protective boot he’s been wearing since last month. The real mystery is Utley.
He’s such a likeable guy, has lots of charisma. Still, from the very start of spring training you could see he was in pain. The huge ice pack he wore daily like a uniform.

Even before he left the rams, it was rumored Steve Spagnuolo was coming to the Eagles to be the new defensive coordinator. Makes sense, he still has a home here, his wife is from here, and he says he loves it here.
The sixers are playing really well, winning seven of their last eight games. They are first in the Atlantic division, three games over the Celtics and two over the Knicks, and are off to their best start since 2000 (when they won ten in a row).
Most of the players and coaches don’t like him. Which actually means he is doing his job. Anyone can see that Hartnell is physical and takes shots at people making him an aggravating guy to play against.
Bill O’Brien asked the alumni at Penn State to give him a chance — and it looks like – finally — they are.
The last episode of 24/7 Flyers Vs. Rangers airs tonight. Now that the cameras are off, will they get back to business as usual?
