Dempsey on the Jersey Shore

February 19, 2010

I’m a big fan of the television show “Jersey Shore” on MTV (but Smallville is still my No. 1).  Some of the things that those guys did and said were unbelievable.  For example, DJ Pauly D. put charcoal on a gas grill and almost burned the house down as a result.  Is it possible to be that unfamiliar with the […]

I’m Back

January 28, 2010

I’m back.  I took a little break because the Eagles season ended with a lot of disappointment and the St. Joe’s Hawks basketball season looks worse than a Mike “The Situation” hook-up at the Jersey Shore.  I wanted to take a little time to let my feelings kind of cool down so that I could write a column with a […]

Dear Joe…

November 30, 2009

Last week the Eagles played the Bears and won.  That was what I expected.  I didn’t expect that we would have to come from behind to win the game though.  The game last week and what I think should have been or could have been done differently is not what this week’s column is about.  No.  It is about something […]

Wake Me Up When the Real Season Starts

October 16, 2009

The calendar says that the NFL’s regular season began six weeks ago.  As an Eagles fan it still feels like the pre-season. Why?  Well, our starting quarterback got injured in the first game of the season against the Carolina Panthers who are now 1-3.  Not a good team.  So, then our back-up quarterback looked like a capable back-up quarterback in […]

Wildcat…Old Joke, Wrinkle Cream or Both?

September 25, 2009

I was at the Eagles game last Sunday where the wildcat formation was unveiled in a regular season game for the first time.  Actually, depending upon who you ask, the wildcat was used nine times according to various reporters, or 12 times according to Eagles head coach Andy Reid.  The exact number of times the formation was used isn’t really […]

NFL Wrap-Up – Week 1

September 15, 2009

Titans 10 Steelers 13 A tough defensive game that went into overtime and was finally won when Ben Rothlisberger orchestrated the game winning drive.  Troy Polamalu became the latest victim of the Madden curse.  One down, and one to go, now. Eagles 38 Panthers 10 Looked like the Panthers were going to dominate the Eagles when they scored on their […]
