Forget trading Allen, and other things

This blog has promoted keeping Allen Iverson several times, but it's notable that The 700 Level has joined into the fray. After his most recent back-to-back games of at least 40 points and 10 assists, how can anyone legitimately argue the Sixers would be better without the man? They can't. He is the lifeblood of this franchise, and will be until the day he decides to retire. I, for one, hope that is in a Sixers uniform.

The Forward, one of the oldest American Jewish newspapers, wrote an interesting piece about Tony Soprano and his relationship with Jews. It's worth a look, if only for the insight that Tony picking the Italian Dr. Melfi as his therapeutic outlet has hindered his growth as a person. This is very subtle in the show, but Melfi does cow-tow somewhat to Tony's mob presence.

TVSquad has found a clip of a real-life Simpsons intro. It's quite good.

Finally, Mike Drago, Reading Phillies beatwriter, has the story about Keith Bucktrot getting released by the Phillies. It's a tough story to read, because injuries hampered his ability to perform in the higher levels. Drago made reference to Bucktrot's attitude, which is hard to read because we never know the real story unless someone from the team or the player says it, and we end up relying on innuendo and rumor. Good luck to Keith.
