Moreno signing tops weekend headlines

The Phillies claimed RHP Edwin Moreno off waivers from the Texas Rangers. Aside from that, the Philadelphia sports world has been whisper quiet.

Eagles march on to Jacksonville!
OK, so Edwin will have to wait until spring to get some press. Tough town.

Starting Monday, BPF will pepper in some unconventional thoughts about Super Bowl XXXIX, along with commentary on the Phillies offseason.

The big news is the Eagles finally did it, and for many of us, Sunday marked the team's biggest accomplishment in a lifetime of waiting. Now they face a New England team that's absolutely stone cold. The Patriots don't make mistakes. On the field, it starts with quarterback Tom Brady and the perfection spreads through the ranks. On the sidelines, Belicheck can work you over like Bobby Fischer.

For Andy Reid and the Eagles, this is the ultimate test and I'm glad they'll be matched against the league's standard-setter. I’ll talk more about the task at hand some time tomorrow. Until then, good luck trying to find stories about the game, because from now on, it's all Edwin, all the time.

Media darling Edwin Moreno
