Jeff, thanks again for your intrepid pursuit of the ejected fan's side of things. The guy wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary - loud, yes, obnoxious, yes - but not violating any stricture printed on the back of his ticket. It was a weird, unique experience, watching a ref stop a game just to kick out a loudmouth. Lighten up, Francis.

Wonderful post, Andrea. I will consult with your dad when I visit More Perreca's on Friday.

FYI To the hoop fans who believe "Hal Lear" should have been "Hal Greer", Fran McCaffery said "Hal Lear." He was a Philly guy who helped Temple go to the Final Four in 1956. As one reader helpfully pointed out, Arizin was misspelled by me.

You just Wally Pipped your way out of a sweet gig, buddy boy. "Aw ... Pauly, won't see him around no more."

Thanks, Joe. Couldn't resist the Dolphins remark, could you? Just wait 'til next time.

I'll still cover the race in some capacity, probably write a column and some notes and/or sidebar after I get done running. We always double-team it, so someone, probably Bob Weiner, will be there at the finish (way ahead of me).
I've covered the Corporate Challenge a few times on days when I also ran the race. Your story suffers for having missed seeing the winners come across the line, but I've found that runners are pretty good at describing what they just went through. Of course, the gap between me and the winners will be much greater after a 15k than it is after a 3.5-mile race.

Not to be picky, but it wasn't a sidewalk. The cement, though, was quite wet (and deep).
And no, fearless is not correct. Let's just say that my left foot was dutifully following orders from the block of cement that kidnapped my cerebral cortex.
