Live from the heavens, it's Saturday football

It's Penn and Villanova on on a great day to be at Franklin Field.

Live from the heavens, it's Saturday football

What´s the score down there?

Greetings from the place that really created the Curse of William Penn.

Okay, the press box at Franklin Field isn't that high off the ground. But it's a long walk up, and if you don't believe me, ask all the other reporters in the press box who've been complaining about it for years.

And if you don't trust the media at all, that's what this election is all about, right?

(Yes, that was sarcasm.)

Anyway, it's a great day to be outside. Sunny and a bit breezy, but still warm enough for most of the fans (and media) to be wearing shorts.

We're just a few minutes away from kickoff of the 13th meeting of the Villanova and Penn football teams. Join me in the chat window, and let's get this thing going.
