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."

Talk About It, Talk About It ... Phils Need a Nickname The '50 team was the Whiz Kids. The'93 squad was dubbed the Wheeze Kids. Take my poll offering a few choices for this team.

Pictured: Ramon Martinez getting congratulated after his grand slam. Story.
