WE DON'T know where Chip Kelly will settle now that he's the Eagles head coach. What we do know is that he doesn't like to be cooped up.
When Kelly coached at the University of Oregon he resided in a 6,300-square-foot house in north Eugene. Most of the homes in the development were built on single lots. Kelly's house, which according to the Oregonion is worth $1.1 million, was built on a double lot. According to the report, it has six bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths and an indoor basketball court.
You ain't gonna find that in South Philly.
No word on whether Kelly will sell or rent the house. Either way, he'll have to do a little landscaping.
According to the Register-Guard newspaper, based in Eugene, someone - a Ducks fan? - damaged the front lawn by driving a truck over it after Kelly jumped to the NFL.
In a somewhat related story, the domain name FireChipKelly.com is for sale.
"Make me an offer," writes the site's owner.
Don't laugh. Eagles fans might be lining up to buy it after a few seasons.
Too pucking cold
You might have seen this coming.
The Williamsport (Pa.) Outlaws, a minor league hockey team that played all of its home game outdoors, has folded due to attendance problems.
Did someone forget to tell them that it gets cold outside at this time of year?
On Wednesday, Don Kirnan, the commissioner of the Federal Hockey League in which the Outlaws play, said the league will assume ownership of the team for the remainder of the season. The Outlaws will play their final 15 regular-season games on the road.
The Outlaws skate on a rink atop Bowman Field, which is used by the Class A Williamsport Crosscutters, a Phillies minor league affiliate.
Kirnan said the Outlaws averaged between 200 and 300 fans a game.
