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."

McNabb Dunks! Will Call T.O. for Free Book
Worried about McNabb's physical or mental state? Check out two video clips on the Eagles website. During a charity basketball game, his no-look alley-oop pass sets up a Darnerian McCants dunk, then McNabb adds a jam of his own. He even wrestles an opponent on the floor. That sports hernia? In a post-game video interview, in which he sounded reassuringly relaxed and mature, the QB said: "Well, it's getting better. It's still not 100 percent ... But if I had to play now, I'd definitely play." You'll recall that he had surgery in early December to fix the abdominal injury that cut his season short. McNabb had no harsh words for Terrell Eldorado Owens either. Donovan called his snippiest critic a "great athlete," and responded when asked if he'll buy T.O.'s book with laughter and a quick quip: "I'll call him and see if I can get it for free." He's happy Jon Runyan is coming back, and likes the addition of receiver Jabar Gaffney.
