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."

The Most Overrated Thing in Sports ...
... is saying who's over- or under-rated. Allen Iverson made an ESPN guy's all-overrated team last week, because while A.I.'s "almost universally considered among the top five or so players in the league," gee, he's maybe only top ten. C'mon. Everyone knows Iverson's undersized, isn't a defensive force, has been knocked for not passing enough, and just got snubbed for the Olympic team. So who's buying that "top five" characterization? More like he's top five for taking abuse. Also on the list: the Sixers' Kyle Korver. Again, who's been raving?
