Historic World Series' Game + Another Flyers' Departure

My brand new eBook: Readers Who Have No Time for Words is now available.

These stories were specifically written for people who like to read, but don't have much time to do actually do so. Humor, horror, mystery, adventure, travel, sports and a few selected stories are all wrapped inside this mini-tome. Thank you for considering this download.
Headline Topic: World Series

Thrilling win by the San Francisco Giants over the Detroit Tigers in the first game of the  World Series. 

Pablo Sandoval's historic 3-home run night and Justin Verlander's surprising effort and Barry Zito's good start all led to that Giants' home win. Can they take Game 2?

Headline Topic II: Scott Hartnell + Three Flyers' Legends

Scott Hartnell's decision to play in Finland is just the latest sign that the NHL lockout will drone on endlessly.

In the meantime, Flyers' fans have said that they like my retro features. Best to think about the good old days right now. :-)

Each of these Flyers' legends (Brian Propp, Dave Poulin and Tim Kerr) deserved their own feature article:

Here is a link to the story about Propp: 

News Headline: Presidential Debates are Over, Now...

If you are an undecided voter after all this time that must mean that you are undecided about voting - rather than about voting for either President Obama, or Governor Romney (or a third party candidate).

All I ask, is that you do vote. Don't feel like your vote doesn't count. Don't think that you don't know enough to cast your opinion in a formal way and don't forget about the state and local elections wherever you live. 

Whoever you choose, for any office, makes you a part of the election process. 

You matter and you count.

Baseball cards

For those of us who are old enough to remember
When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.
Recent Headline Topic: Eagles' Move

I interviewed Juan Castillo for a feature How Concussions May Be Linked to ALS - Part 1 that I wrote about former Patriots and Eagles' fullback Kevin Turner.

Juan spoke very highly of Kevin and of everyone who we referenced on that day. I also enjoyed speaking to him about his own football career. He is a personable, honest man. I wish him all the best in his life and career moving forward. 

Recent Headline Topic:  Hope for Phillies' Darin 'Babe' Ruf 

Seeing Darin Ruf hit numerous home runs out of a Double-A park in Reading was thrilling. Seeing him hit his first major league home run, during the first game that he started in left field for the Philadelphia Phillies was priceless (to coin an advertising cliche.)  

Will he actually develop into a major league player? Could that happen by next season? No one knows the answers to these questions, but personal stories have always drawn me to this specific game.

Here is my feature article about him.

Classic Headline Topic: The anniversary of Pete Rose's 4,192 hit.

Pete broke Ty Cobb's hit record on 9/11/85. The man was unique in the annals of baseball history. 

For those who are interested, my recent feature comments on Rose's time with the Phillies and the complex feelings that many of us have about his gambling issues:
Phillies' great Mike Schmidt, Pete Rose, and baseball justice

Recent Headline Topic: Tony DiLeo 

The hiring of DiLeo as GM promotes from within and represents another feel-good move that the newest Sixers ownership group has made. 

With Doug Collins seemingly likely to continue to have strong influence on this team, all signs remain positive for the resurgence of this basketball franchise.
