Presidential Debate, Monday Night Football, and the Baseball Playoffs

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

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.
News Headline:  Tonight's Presidential Debate 

Tonight's Presidential Debate (the third and final one in the series) is important to watch. It involves foreign policy, which always has an impact on everyday life in the United States.

I don't care whether you support Barack Obama, or Mitt Romney. I do care if you think Monday Night Football, or Game 7 of the National League Championship Series is more important. THEY ARE NOT.

I'm a sports' fan who loves baseball and likes football. I'm watching the debate live and in its entirety. While sports has been a very positive influence in advancing civil rights in our society, both of these games don't matter when compared to this debate and the upcoming election. 

P.S. The debate will be over by 1030pm, so you will still be able to catch the important moments in those games anyway. ;-)

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.

Classic Headline Topic: Three Flyers' Legends

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: 

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.
