The SEPTA schedule for tonight's Union game

Since it's a weeknight game, there is quite a bit more service to PPL Park than there is on a Saturday or Sunday. It's particularly worth noting that there is an express train that leaves Center City just after 5:00.

Unfortunately, I won't be at PPL Park because of other work obligations (you may have noticed one of them displayed rather prominently on Philly.com over the last two nights). But I'll be paying attention as best I can, and there will be plenty of coverage from Marc Narducci in the Inquirer and Kerith Gabriel in the Daily News.

Here's a follow-up to the story I linked to yesterday with new accusations of corruption in the World Cup bidding process.

As I was perusing the AP photo wire last night, I came across this picture of FIFA president Sepp Blatter. As a way of lightening the mood a bit ahead of tonight's Union game, I figured it would be fun to have a caption contest.

I don't have any prizes to give out, but I'm sure you all can come up with some good one-liners. Fire away.
