Bill Campbell talks the Sixers season, Kyle Kendrick’s success and Albert Pujols’ struggles.
I can’t remember seeing or broadcasting a better comeback than the 76ers staged last Friday night against the Celtics.

The Super Bowl usually gives us something to remember. Seven weeks ago the New York Giants were 7-7 and today they sit atop the National Football League. This game XLVI, except for the Manning family, didn’t provide us with many thrills.
Since this is Super Bowl week, it would seem appropriate to write about the National Football League and the men who coach its teams.
Joe Paterno always said that football kept him alive. Like the rest of us, he didn’t want to die.
