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...
'My Name Is Terrell'
Yesterday's T.O. apology show reminded me of NBC's My Name Is Earl, about a man with a long list of people he's wronged. Alas, T.O.'s try to fix his karma was just as fictional as Earl's. (Eagles said, sorry, too little, too late.) Story with links to video.

Too bad the press conference wasn't more like The Apprentice with T.O. saying to hot dog agent Drew Rosenhaus: "You're fired!"

The best moment was when the rep-ruining rep was asked, "What have you done for him other than get him kicked off the team, at this point?" T.O. couldn't help smirking at that one.

And I can't help thinking of other TV shows related to all this Eagles melodrama.

General Hospital. Injured-riddled team is lead by much-MRI-ed Donovan McNabb.
The Biggest Loser. Coach Andy Reid gets trimmer by 40 pounds and one musclebound malcontent.
Numb3rs. Cap-wizard Joe Banner cuts pricey Corey Simon and T.O., but gives Brian Westbrook and David Akers more dough.
RosenHouse Tale of a man whose medicine helps put a career into a coma.
I Want to Be a Hilton Owner Jeffrey Lurie aspires to have a "gold standard" franchise with class and "multiple championships."
Extreme Makeover: Eagles Edition Remodeling galore that's not always necessary and not always pretty.
And, of course, Lost. Lost players. Lost games. Lost opportunities. Lost joy.

Stay tuned. A string of victories and maybe we'll have The Amazing Race.
