The brothers banged on the door loudly to get the attention of a security guard and finally pulled the property’s fire alarm.
The hotel says that the guard didn’t not open the door because the Lewis brothers were behaving belligerently and that he saw Lamar Lewis with a pocket knife.
The Lewis’ were charg...

Can Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy supersede his outstanding performance in 2011? You bet your buttocks he can!

There are plenty of reasons as to why McCoy will improve upon his breakout season last year where he ran for 1,309 yards, rushed for 17 TDs, averaged 4.8 yards per carry and tacked on 315 yards receiving and three more scores.

Today is Friday the 13th, the day made famous by horror movie icon Jason Voorhees of the Friday the 13th movie franchise. Since the Philadelphia Eagles should be in for a “killer” season, I thought it would be fun to take a look at how the two compare to one another.
Yes, I will shamelessly admit I’ve seen every single Friday the 13th movie, including “Freddie vs. Jason”...

2012 NFL Season Preview for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Let me preface the following post by saying that I think the Eagles will win the NFC East, and also win a playoff game. I’m not going any further than that. I’m not predicting a Super Bowl like a lot of other homers are doing around here, but I think the Eagles will be leaps and bounds better than last season, which I guess isn’t really saying much.
That being said, there...
