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."

Caravan to Canton for Reggie Induction, Eagles Game? 

ROAD TRIP! WIP's Anthony "The Cuz" Gargano proposed one yesterday that's hardly a crazy idea if you know the fanaticism of Eagles fans. On Saturday, Aug. 5, in Canton, Ohio, Reggie White, legendary Eagles and Packers defensive end, will be posthumously inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And guess which team's playing there the very next day? That's right, the Eagles. They'll take on the Raiders in the yearly Hall of Fame Game exhibition. Get the picture? Recall how Philly fans caravaned to last year's Super Bowl? Well, why not another pilgrimage, led by the author of A Sunday Pilgrimage, a reminiscence of that Jacksonville journey? A caller even suggested a goal: 92 vehicles for N0. 92 (the number White wore).

Sounds "cool de la," as Ant might say, except for one problem: Getting in. Although tickets for Saturday's ceremony go on sale at 11 this morning (go to Profootballhof.com or call 1-800-913-9788), "a very limited number of tickets are expected to be available for public sale," with details merely promised "soon" on the site.

Wait, here's a possible solution: Travel packages available through the Eagles website. And they're caravan-compatible, since airfare's not included.

Perhaps Gargano will elaborate on his game plan this morning. His radio show on WIP (610 AM), also available via the Internet, begins after 10 a.m.

Pedal faster!
