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."

Cut, Outta Here, Sayonara 

Howard Eskin buried T.O. in more ways than one.

Just as expected: "The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have terminated the contract of WR Terrell Owens."

This story isn't over, though. Gonna be interesting to see who'll pay him what. To hear how much he'll finally say about how the Eagles treated him. To see if, as an opponent, who he'll hurt more -- the Eagles or his new team.

What's this?? Check out what happened in Dallas: The Cowboys have cut receiver Keyshawn Johnson, to avoid paying a $1 million roster bonus. Could it be this opens the door for T.O. in Dallas?

You Hope T.O. Goes to the Cowboys?
