What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Charlie & the Win-Late Factory You don't have to believe, and you have every right to fear getting your hopes up. But if you've been snubbing the Phillies, you've missed some moments of sheer magic. Two ninth-inning homers to win Friday night! And yesterday's win puts the Phils just a game back of the Astros for the wild-card spot, as the Mets come to town tonight. Roll the dice. Risk disappointment. It's do or die, and why can't this team will come through? Dare to get excited? Going to a game?
