Here at phillysportsblogs we take pride in our original content, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have appreciation for some of the other talented publications in the area. Today begins what will be a regular post on this site titled “The talk of the town”. It is a sampling of some of the better sports topics being discussed in Philadelphia.

Momentum keeps building as Phillies sweep Marlins – Phiting On

“Get out your broomsticks.  Tonight, Roy Halladay and the Phillies completed a three game sweep of the Florida Marlins, giving them their first sweep since the Padres series (Aug 27-29) but also giving them their 6th straight series win.  The Phillies dominated the series from the first game, outscoring the fish 23-10.  Even better news?  The Braves lost again to the Nationals putting them a full three games behind the Phillies for the NL East lead”

Road loss to San Jose-

“A battle of the goalkeepers resulted in another painful away defeat for the Union.  Knighton, starting again in place of Seitz, came up huge to stop a number of blistering attempts by the Quakes, but his counterpart at the other end of the pitch did the same.  The difference between the two was an artful header by Chris Wondoloski, bonked in perfectly from an Arturo Alavez cross in the 69th.”

What will Birds do if Vick wins –

“It was as if he hit a replay button on the “Michael Vick Experience” – that roller-coaster ride of highlight films that once made Vick the NFL’s highest-paid quarterback. To be honest, it was a glimpse from the past many thought could not be seen again. Apparently, Vick, who missed two full seasons while in prison on charges related to his dogfighting operation, still might be able to play a little bit.”

Week Two Preview: Detroit Lions –

“The Eagles take their battered squad on the road for the first time this week to take on the Detroit Lions. Both teams will be looking to pick up their first win, and if you go by the Dononvan McNabb rule book, one of them will get it. Today we look at some of the Lions team stats after the first week as well as looking at their impact players on both sides of the ball.”

Pronger on ice for first time since playoffs -

“Chris Pronger, still rehabbing his right knee, stepped onto the ice at Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., Wednesday for the first time since Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. “I didn’t fall, so I have to say it’s pretty good,” Pronger said after the short session, which lasted about 15 minutes. Pronger underwent arthroscopic surgery to his knee in late July.”
