Sports Rumblings: Grand Returns

PHILLIES>>> It seems that the lockout has hurt the Flyers none, as fans turned out in droves for the first day of training camp. Now these are the people we don’t get, people so crazy that they’ll watch practice hockey. [NY Daily News]

>>> Andrew Bynum, who to this day has never stepped on the court in a Sixers uniform, is eyeing a return/debut for around the All-Star Break. He’s been cleared to run, but he hurt himself bowling so who really knows. [Sports Illustrated]

>>> And any Phillies news is good news as we get closer and closer to Spring Training: Dr. Michael G. Ciccotti, the chief of sports medicine at the Rothman Institute and head team physician for the Phillies, has been elected as the 2013 president of the Major League Baseball Team Physicians Association. Okay, so it’s barely Phils news … we just need the season to start. We’ve got less than a month until pitchers and catchers report. [Philadelphia Business Journal]
