Today The Fightins featured a blog I happened to stumble upon the other day on my own, and it has some fantastic stuff, namely the drawing of Cliff Lee riding a unicorn that I saw on The Fightins. It also has a great drawing called “Summer of Love,” which seemed to have been a big project for the author in the off-season, as well as even a drawing of Kanye West, of whom I may have mentioned before that I am a fan. Here are some pictures of the aforementioned below; click to enlarge and then definitely check out AlrightMike to see the rest of this talented “drawer’s” collection of work:

My favorite interview so far of the “festivities,” which, by the way, are being broadcast as “The Spectrum’s Final Show?” So far that one is a runaway, won by none other than Dr. Erving:

Broadcaster: “Is watching this sad for you Dr. J?”

Dr. J: “No.  Uh, no.  Really, I’m just cold out here right now.”

I echo your sentiments Julius…

And, obviously, the post couldn’t be complete without:

The following “serigraphs,” which, it turns out, are merely “print[s] made by the silk-screen process,” were produced by the award-winning design and illustration studio of Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers as part of  “From Sea to Shining Sea,” their most recent series of posters which beautifully depict eight of America’s most remarkable cities.

Here are (of course) my two favorites:

Presumably, this was during the Flyers’ excruciating loss to the Atlanta Thrashers last night, who managed to blow a two-goal lead going into the 3rd period for the first time in 24 games; luckily, two “Green Men” made watching video from the game worth it:
