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 ... Covering Philly Sports Illustrated shines the spotlight on two of our city's teams, citing big changes for the better. Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens are all smiles in the big picture, as an inset on the Phillies features Jimmy Rollins' photo. "Turmoil, What Turmoil?" the Eagles story asks. The piece on the Phils, titled "Look Who's Playing Tough," says they're "no longer the same torpid, good-but-not-good-enough Phillies." Read Don Steinberg's story. Talk to him about it at noon in our chatroom. Take our sports poll on whether this will jinx the teams. Or start a discussion here. Think these teams really have changed?
