    Long story at the Washingtonian over the weekend about how David Gregory,the former anchor of NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday-morning news snow, lost that gig. But it’s got a few insights into how Comcast operates — and specifically how it tries to win influence when it goes about the hard work of influence to people who can do things like (say) decide whether its merger with Time Warner Cable might go through. There’s all the usual stuff about lobbyists, donations to minority-advocacy organizations, and the like. Then there’s this: Comcast also had an even more personal…

  • Flyers Goalie Makes History in Comeback Win

    Flyers goalie Rob Zepp became the oldest goalie to win his NHL debut since 1926 as the Philadelphia Flyers rallied for a 4-3 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets last night. Zepp turned 33 in September. The Flyers trailed, 3-1, in the third period, but a pair of goals from Vincent Lecavalier — just his third and fourth of the year — tied it for Philly. After Claude Giroux knocked the puck away from the Jets’ Dustin Byfuglien, Jakub Voracek scored just 10 seconds into overtime to give the Flyers their first overtime win since October 28th. Zepp, 33,a career minor leaguer, made his first…

    By Joseph Santoliquito PHILADELPHIA, PA (CBS) — Look at the line of toes, and you’ll notice something each time St. Joseph’s Prep coach Gabe Infante addresses his players before and after games and practices. To a player, their feet are almost perfectly aligned from one end to the other, all one inch off the yard line the team stands behind. It’s those little things that Infante stresses to his team, the minute details that cover everything from standing together after games, to Olamide Zaccheaus immediately knowing to fall in the end zone after intercepting a desperation pass that…

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It is understandable why Chip Kelly was not in the best of moods on Monday. After watching his team get eliminated from playoff contention over the weekend, Kelly has to field questions in his weekly news conference about his team’s December debacle. Three straight losses have put the Eagles out of playoff contention, leaving one meaningless game remaining against the Giants on Sunday in North Jersey. Just don’t tell Kelly the game is meaningless. “Let’s get that straight,” said Kelly. “We’re going there to win the football…
