Reuben Frank totally clowns his hapless co-worker, Tim Panaccio. I don’t know anything about hockey, but I know Panoch is a joke.
One of the most popular themes of last year’s 76ers (other than “God, they suck”) was “Pity poor Thaddeus Young.”
The power forward was a consummate professional, and pretty much the only veteran presence on the team able to handle the basketball by the time the year ended.

And here we are. The five greatest back-up catchers since 1994 based on completely arbitrary criteria. Away we go. Continue reading
