Wednesday Musings

Here Come the Slots Well after about 43 years of deliberations and untold millions in bribes and graft, the slots parlor sites in Philadelphia have finally been named. has the story, but the bottom line is that both sites are on the Delaware River, one on traffic-clogged Columbus Blvd. between Tasker and Reed. Ed Snider, Billy King and Quincy Jones are investors in this Foxwoods development. Sugarhouse is in Fishtown and has some traffic issues as well, but mega-lawyer Richard Sprague and super builder Neil Keating are the local investors in this Delaware Avenue site. No political connections for any of those guys, huh? Somehow Donald Trump got locked out. Maybe because his site was almost totally inaccessible to the world. Sands is opening a casino on the former Bethlehem Steel site in Bethlehem. Barring legal challenges, these places should open in mid-2008. So more like 2015. Home From Atlanta We're home from Atlanta and the final photos are up on my Flickr site. It was a good trip. John and Emma enjoyed the Aquarium the most. John and I also loved visiting Turner Field. Spending time with everyone down there was a wonderful thing. John especially enjoyed meeting Kayla again, and Emma just ADORES Aunt Elaine. AI Trade I won't go into too much detail here but it's a good deal. Here's why: It moves an unhappy player It gets us 2 more 1st round picks in a deep draft It gets us a pretty good player in Andre Miller It breaks AI's salary into 2 pieces so that it's easier to make some deals under the NBA Salary Cap Now the reason this trade was needed is that Billy King is a pathetic excuse for a GM. He failed to put a team around Iverson that could hope to compete. He seems completely impatient with coaches and he just makes some terrible deals. Eagles What more is there to day except Eagles-Cowboys, Christmas night, in Dallas, for the NFC East? Well lots apparently. Check out the 53,000 or so posts at Wingheads, an Eagles fan forum. Or drop by my friend Enrico's site, The700Level. Enjoy the Holidays! Have a great rest of the week and I hope to see you this Holiday Break! C
