However, student reporters are having their trips funded; in one case, a writer from La Salle had $8,000 raised to allow her to make the trip and cover the team. It's like the NCAA doesn't consider campus newspapers or players' roots when they're organizing the schedule.
On the other side, La Salle's opposition Wichita State got a surprise visit from Tim Tebow, who taught them a valuable lesson about achieving success and popularity and how it can all disappear the instant everyone realizes you possess no fundamental skills whatsoever.
FLYERS ASK YOU TO PLEASE REMEMBER THAT OTHER, SUCCESSFUL SEASON
Now, the last place, 13-16 Flyers may not be your first choice for immortalization this year. But that's why the statue is going to be a seven-foot tall monument of Bobbly Clarke and Bernie Parent hoisting the Stanley Cup, one of the most gratifying and beloved moments in Philadelphia sports history, rather than a statue of Claude Giroux being less effective without Jaromir Jagr.
Hmmm. I had my money on the next Flyers statue hitting the scene to be Todd Fedoruk getting knocked out by Colton Orr. There goes $20.

The newest trailer for Brad Pitt's World War Z shows there's no place on earth where we'll be safe from zombies when the time comes. But we'll mostly not be safe in Philadelphia, where part of the movie was filmed.
