Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.Maybe it’s time the Eagles put out an all points bulleting for Andy Reid. It’s kind of hard to believe the team has allowed this much time to go by since Jeff Lurie announced he was bringing his head coach back without any word from Reid.

I Don’t Get It: Other than the Major League Baseball’s Mid-Summer Classic, you can put all-star games in this category. Any game that’s based on physically colliding with other players is pretty much going to be just a shell of itself in an all-star format. No one is going to risk getting hurt.

Today’s Upper: Another huge fundraising effort yesterday for the backers of Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast. They’ve now raised $1.23 million.

Phil, please keep those daily number columns coming. I look forward to seeing them each morning and miss them when you are too busy to post. They always provide good information and insight. And, like you, I am a Philly phanatic. Phillies since I can remember, maybe 1955. Eagles since at least 1960. Warriors - oops. Sixers since they came to town. And my favorite team, the Flyers. 10 to 12 games a season thanks to a friend. And we had the pleasure of seeing the Winter Classic in a section that was close to 50% Rangers and Flyers fans. It was a lot of fun and we got along well with each other.

Why couldn't those guys at Geno's get along too?

Phil, please keep up your daily number column. It is insightful and interesting.
Like you, I am a Philly phanatic. Phillies since I can remember maybe 1955. Eagles since at least 1960. Warriors - oops. Sixers since they came to town. And my favorite team the Flyers. Kind of wish they had chosen Phlyers. 10 to 12 games a season at the center. And this year we went to the Winter Classic. We had a section that was about 50% Ranger and 50% Flyers fans. We had a great time and got along well. Why couldn't those guys at Geno's followed suit?

Thank you for your columns.
