Kim Jong Il, the 69 year old dictator of Communist North Korea, died on Saturday. The state run network said Kim died of "overwork" while "dedicating his life to the people."

There was no independent confirmation of the circumstances reported by the government, which routinely touted the seemingly mythic achievements of the "Dear Leader" during his lifetime. They did say, He suffered a heart... Read More

The first ground was broken in 1969, but construction was halted and restarted many times through lawsuits and court actions. The western suburbs were in... Read More

Andy Reid said he's confident Vick would start against the Jets Sunday even though Vick watched practice from the sideline this week.

The Eagles are still clinging to playoff hopes despite a 5-8 record. They’ll need Vick to be sharp this week against one of the toughest defenses in the NFL.

Vick showed plenty of rust against the Dolphins. He completed just 15 of 30 passes and threw another interception. But he still made enough plays to help lead Philadelphia to... Read More
