“They’ve shut down Market Street, man!!!
“ESPN and ABC, that is.
“Four huge tractor-trailer trucks loaded with TV gear and accessories – including tenting [sic] and a nice gas grill – have totally blocked off the 500 block of Market Street (with cooperation from Philly police) to unload and setup [sic] for coverage of Saturday’s Temple-Notre Dame football game.”
Jonboy, get a life! We have rapid transit in Philly.
I can’t remember when ESPN came to Philly for much of anything since the Phillies won the World Series in 2008.

I had the opportunity to watch five national championships for my alma mater, Nebraska. I doubt Temple will reach that height.
But I think the Owls can beat Notre Dame. I will not take solace in a loss if Temple doesn’t do well. Football is about winning and losing. Nevertheless, I also don’t take solace when the hacks fail to take pride in what the Owls have accomplished. The team is 7-0 for the first time in history and slammed down Penn State for the first victory in four decades.
I am Temple Proud!
