  • Del. Peeping Tom Sketch Looks Like Drake, Many Others

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:18 am
    Police in New Castle County, Delaware, are looking into reports of a peeping Tom. Cops say a neighbor saw a man walking in a woman’s backyard in Eastburn Acres (near Stanton). The witness says he was in his early 20s and about 6-foot-4. She had seen him looking into the woman’s windows before. Last night, they released a sketch. In order to bring more attention to the police sketch of this man, and get an easy post on an August Thursday afternoon, I decided to ask my followers who it looks like. It’s amazing the breadth of the answers I received! My favorite answer was:…
  • Pilots Warned About Design of Jet in Lewis Katz Crash

    Dan McQuade
    21 Aug 2014 | 10:21 am
    Gulfstream has warned pilots about a safety device that does not work as expected on its Gulfstream IV jets. The jet’s design is supposed to prevent pilots from engaging engines for takeoff power if wing and tail control panels are locked. But according to the letter obtained by Bloomberg News, that can be thwarted in some situations. A Gulfstream IV was carrying Inquirer co-owner Lewis Katz and six others crashed earlier this year, killing everyone on board. The NSTB says pilot error may have contributed to the crash. The Gulfstream jet that crashed in Massachusetts reached a speed of…

    Although the Taney Dragons lost last night in the Little League World Series, the TV ratings were still high. Taney’s game against Mountain Ridge of Las Vegas became the highest-rated LLWS broadcast in the history of ESPN. SI writes: For comparison: The 3.4 rating ESPN received tops CBS’ final-round rating (3.1) for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational​ last Sunday, as well as that night’s Yankees-Red Sox broadcast (1.7). Additionally, the LLWS broadcast drew 10 times the number of viewers that the Angels-Red Sox game got on ESPN2 at the same time. Locally, the game did…
  • Are Good Phillies Teams Good for Newspapers?

    Joel Mathis
    21 Aug 2014 | 8:23 am
    Our pal Randy LoBasso has an interesting cover story this week at Philadelphia Weekly, suggesting that when the Philadelphia Phillies play poorly — as they are this season — there are economic ramifications: For many of Citizens Bank Park’s workers, it’s simple trickle-down economics: pay rises and falls with the team’s fortune. These workers, who vend beer section-by-section, aisle-by-aisle, are paid based on tips and commission. Poor teams mean fewer fans. Fewer fans means less product moved. Less product means less pay—and as the team gets worse, for lots of these workers,…

The incident happened on Aug. 20 around 7:30 p.m. Two juvenile females, ages 12 and 13, reported they had been fishing at the river area located at East Ferry and River Roads. While at that location, the girls saw a black pick-up truck drive up and down East Ferry Road multiple times. At one point, the victims say, the vehicle stopped in the area and the driver exited the truck while clearing his throat loudly. It’s believed this was to get the girls’ attention. The victims then…

  • Fantasy Football Trends: Johnny Manziel’s Influence On Drafts

    21 Aug 2014 | 2:40 pm
    By Andrew Kahn You don’t need to be a fantasy football guru to know you shouldn’t draft a back-up quarterback. This is especially true if the back-up in question failed to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job. With that in mind, Cleveland Browns rookie Johnny Manziel is certainly overvalued by fantasy owners. Manziel, the No. 22 pick in the draft, will not be starting on Week 1. And yet, according to, he’s been drafted in 52 percent of paid leagues so far. His most common landing spot is the 13th round, so maybe owners are taking a flyer on the former…

    Not surprisingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers didn't hold up their team charter flight for Le'Veon Bell while he was having blood drawn following a marijuana possession arrest. So not only did Bell, the team's second-year starting tailback, get charged with marijuana possession and likely a DUI (that's why he was having blood drawn), he had to book a flight, go through security with the common folk and squeeze into a regular airline seat on the way to Philadelphia for the team's preseason game on Thursday. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette confirmed that Bell wasn't on the team charter…

The Colts gave up a first-round pick to acquire Richardson from the Cleveland Browns in 2013. The pick, 26th overall, was used by the Browns in May to select quarterback Johnny Manziel. In return, Richardson averaged 2.4 yards per carry, admitting he never had a full grasp of his role or the playbook as Donald Brown emerged as the No. 1 back down the stretch for the AFC South champions.

Byrd, the top free agent acquisition by New Orleans this past offseason, was cleared for contact this week, allowing him to practice at full speed and with no limitations for the first time since signing a six-year, $56 million contract in March. ''I feel good, thank God.'' Saints coach Sean Payton said coaches are eager to see Byrd on the field in a game situation this weekend.

Adam Wainwright will try for a major league-best 16th win Friday night as the Cardinals open a three-game road series with the Philadelphia Phillies. St. Louis (69-57), winner of four straight, used Thursday's off day to bump Wainwright (15-7, 2.40 ERA) ahead of Shelby Miller and better align its top starter with future NL Central matchups.

    If it seems like Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is losing his grip this week, it's because he actually has lost his grip this week. Twice. First, during Monday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Utley lost his bat after fouling a pitch off , sending it helicoptering past the pitcher's mound. Then on Wednesday afternoon, Utley literally tossed his bat at a pitch from Mariners left-hander James Paxton, and this time he not only made contract, but also somehow kept it fair and turned it into an RBI. Ultey seemed to be fooled by Paxton's knuckle curve, which is the breaking…
