PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Pilgrims from all over the world are pouring into town for this weekend’s Papal event, and some are making the pilgrimage the old-fashioned way…on foot.

Last Sunday, more than 20 youngsters embarked from Baltimore on a spiritual journey like no other. Led by Father Jack Lombardi, they’ve walked 12 to 15 miles each day:

“This is day six and we have two more days after this and everybody’s doing well,” he says. “Got some tired people, but pace ourselves and we’ll make it to the Papal Mass in Philadelphia.”

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia man has been sentenced to life in prison in the shooting death of his caseworker and the wounding of his psychiatrist, who returned fire with his own gun to end the siege at a hospital complex last year.

Fifty-year-old Richard Plotts, of Upper Darby, pleaded guilty but mentally ill to first-degree murder, attempted murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

He was sentenced Friday in Delaware County Court to a mandatory life term on the murder count and an additional 15 to 30 years on the other counts.

Philadelphia 76ers shares a light moment with teammate Moses Malone 
#2 while resting on the bench during an NBA game in 1985 at The 
Spectrum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s amazing to think that two Hall of Fame big men were once patrolling the Sixers front court together. Moses Malone, who established himself as one of the best big men in the league took a young rookie under his wing and helped to make him into one of the best big men in the league.

That rookie was Charles Barkley. What the two developed was more than a teammate relationship. In fact, it transcended that as well as mere friendship. Malone became like a father figure to Barkley.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – SEPTEMBER 20: Jason Witten #82 of the 
Dallas Cowboys makes a catch for a first down and is tackled by 
Jordan Hicks #58 of the Philadelphia Eagles during the second quarter 
of a football game at Lincoln Financial Field on September 20, 2015 
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
 
The wounded Dallas Cowboys hobbled into Lincoln Financial Field, missing receiver threat Dez Bryant and starting guard Ronald Leary, and downed the Eagles rather easily, 20-10, in a shocker Sunday in a game that wasn’t even that close.

The loss dropped the Eagles to 0-2, and going back to last season, it marked their fifth loss in the last six games, while Dallas improved to 2-0 and placed itself in a strong position in the NFC East.

Sam Bradford and the Eagles offense had problems all afternoon. The Birds never crossed midfield and had minus-3 yards rushing in the first half. Bradford received little protection in completing 23 of 37, for 224 yards and a touchdown—with two interceptions. Eagles’ fans showed their displeasure by beginning to leave with 5:24 left in the third quarter, when the Cowboys’ Sean Lee intercepted Bradford in the end zone—a pass in which Bradford seemed to be throwing more to Lee than anyone wearing white.

Moses Malone, basketball player who excelled at the offensive rebound, dies at 60

Moses Malone, basketball player who excelled at the offensive rebound, dies at 60

Moses Malone Dies at Age 60
.
 











The NBA Hall of Famer won 3 MVPs and made 12 consecutive All-Star games.

Here's some bummer news to likely start your day with. NBA Hall of Famer Moses Malone passed away in his sleep at the age of 60. He was in Norfolk, Va. where he was set to play in a golf tournament:
 

 
 Moses Malone, a three-time pro basketball MVP and one of the sport’s most ferocious rebounders, died Sept. 13 at a hotel in Norfolk, Va. He was 60.

Det. Jeffrey Scott of the Norfolk police department confirmed the death and said there was no indication of foul play. Mr. Malone’s body was discovered after he failed to report to a celebrity golf tournament in which he was scheduled to play.

A 6-foot-10 center who made the leap from high school to the pros, he was nicknamed the “Chairman of the Boards” and was the National Basketball Association’s career leader in offensive rebounds. He led the league in rebounds per game for five straight seasons from 1980 to 1985 and was part of the Philadelphia 76ers’ 1983 NBA championship team.

Mr. Malone was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001 and attended the induction ceremonies for the year’s class this weekend in Springfield, Mass., before returning to his native Virginia.

His staggering statistics across 21 seasons and 1,455 professional games included 20.3 points and 12.3 rebounds per game in his combined American Basketball Association and NBA careers. He holds NBA records for offensive rebounds in a career (6,731), season (587) and game (21).
 
“With three MVPs and an NBA championship, he was among the most dominant centers ever to play the game and one of the best players in the history of the NBA and the [old] ABA,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said.

Drafted in 1974 by the Utah Stars of the ABA, Mr. Malone went on to play for eight NBA clubs and was the league’s MVP in 1979 and 1982 while playing for the Houston Rockets.

Mr. Malone joined the 76ers the following season and added his third MVP award while leading the 76ers to that championship after making his famed “Fo’, Fo’, Fo’,” prediction that the Sixers would win their playoff series in four-game sweeps.

He wasn’t far off: The Sixers lost just one game in that postseason before sweeping the Lakers in the NBA Finals, with Mr. Malone winning the finals MVP award after averaging 26 points in that postseason.

Mr. Malone’s death comes shortly after the passing after another 76ers center, Darryl Dawkins.
Moses Eugene Malone was born in Petersburg, Va., on March 23, 1955. He was raised by his mother, a nurses’ aide and food-plant worker, in poverty.

After high school, he was poised to enter the University of Maryland but instead signed with the Utah Stars in the third round of the 1974 draft. He was among the first basketball players to enter the professional leagues straight from high school.

He also played for St. Louis before being selected in the ABA dispersal draft by Portland, which traded him to the Buffalo Braves.

Mr. Malone would go on to play for the Houston Rockets, the 76ers, the Washington Bullets (from 1986 to 1988), the Atlanta Hawks, the Milwaukee Bucks and the San Antonio Spurs, ending his career in the 1994-95 season.

He was a 12-time All-Star and was chosen as one of the league’s 50 greatest players. Malone finished his NBA career with an average of 20.6 points and was a four-time selection to the All-NBA first team.

In 2005, he returned to the 76ers as a consultant and briefly as an assistant coach.

His marriage to Alfreda Gill, with whom he had two sons, ended in divorce. A list of survivors was not immediately available.

Van Stone News Feed: Dual celebration for Yeadon judge- Philadelphia Tribune by Nathaniel Lee

For full story go online to Philadelphia Tribune Duel celebration for Yeadon Judge
 
It was a big day for Justice W. Keith Williams II of Yeadon, who celebrated a double anniversary at his home on Fairview Avenue in Yeadon on Sept. 5.
During the celebration attended by sharply dressed friends, relatives, colleagues and dignitaries, Williams celebrated the dual occasions of both his 50th birthday and his 20th year in legal practice.

Williams enjoy a comfortable living in his spacious home with a pool in a quiet Yeadon community but the judge began his life journey in Southwest Philadelphia where he lived until the age of 15.

“It was a great experience learning field, it built a lot of character and I think growing up in Southwest [Philly] I was able to develop the tenacity you need to be successful,” he said.

“Thank God my parents moved to Yeadon when I was 15, it was like I went to sleep and woke up in ‘The Cosby Show’ back in the early ‘80s,” he said.

Williams described that time in his life as “fabulous.”

“I think having that combination of inner-city experience but also going to a great school was a great opportunity, it was like pulling two worlds together and I think it made me the person I am today.”

Moving from Southwest Philadelphia to Yeadon, though only a short distance from one another geographically, seemed like worlds apart culturally.

“It was a culture shock in many ways, the music was different, the schools were different,” Williams said. “I found myself having to catch up, I found myself having to dig a little deeper to compete academically.”

But the graduate from Lincoln University who later attended North Carolina Central Law School did just that and, upon graduating, passed his bar exam on the first try and went promptly into business practicing law.

“When I came back home I realized there was a need for an attorney in Yeadon,” Williams said. “I saw the tides turning a little bit.”

Prior to going away to college, Williams said the racial makeup of Yeadon was around 80 percent white and 20 percent Black. When he returned things had changed significantly.

“When I got home I realized that tide was shifting, in a good way,” he said. “We were able to maintain a great community and we just got more African-American professionals and so I saw that opportunity and I took it.”

Williams opened his law office on Church Lane in Yeadon and said from that point on, he never looked back.

During that time, Williams ran for the office of District Judge of Yeadon and won adding to his already burgeoning list of personal accomplishments and said that one of the things he desired to do was to help youth.

One of the ways that Williams helps youth is through supporting the work of the Yeadon Education Athletic Association (YEAA).

“We are a nonprofit organization and right now we have soccer and basketball for ages five to 18,” said Leon Howard, who began working with the association after moving from Lansdowne to Yeadon and coaching soccer and basketball.

“That’s my ministry, serving the youth,” Howard said.

In lieu of giving gifts, those attending Williams’ celebration were asked to donate to the YEAA as a means of supporting the organizatoion’s work.

Also in attendance was Yeadon’s Mayor Rohan K. Hepkins who called Williams a very fair and consistent judge.

“He doesn’t take sides, he just renders justice according to the law and he calls it fairly,” Hepkins said. “He’s been very supportive of our borough and our law enforcement and he is very fair and consistent judge.”

Despite his accomplishments, Williams stated he wants to give back to youth.

“One of the things that I thrive on is trying to mentor youth,” he said. “I want to make sure that I’m that role model so when kids walk along Church Lane and they see my office it’s something tangible for them to aspire to.”

Williams stunned in US Open semis by Vinci, Slam bid ends

Williams stunned in US Open semis by Vinci, Slam bid ends 


AP Photo
Serena Williams reacts after losing a point to Roberta Vinci, of Italy, during a semifinal match at the U.S. Open tennis tournament, Friday, Sept. 11, 2015, in New York.
  
NEW YORK (AP) -- For Serena Williams' first 26 matches this year at major tournaments, no deficit was too daunting, no opponent too troublesome, no victory too far from reach.

She was unbeaten and, seemingly, unbeatable, nearing the first Grand Slam in more than a quarter-century. All Williams needed was two more wins to pull off that rare feat. And yet, against an unseeded and unheralded opponent in the U.S. Open semifinals, she faltered. Her pursuit of history ended, oh so close.

In one of the most significant upsets in the history of tennis, Williams finally found a hole too big to climb out of, losing 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 on Friday at Flushing Meadows to 43rd-ranked Roberta Vinci of Italy.

"I don't want to talk about how disappointing it is for me," Williams said at the start of a briefer-than-usual news conference. "If you have any other questions, I'm open for that."

Vinci had never before played in a Grand Slam semifinal; Williams owns 21 major titles. In four previous matchups, Vinci had never taken a set off Williams.

"Every so often," Vinci said, "a miracle happens."

How little faith did even she have? Vinci said she booked a flight home for Saturday, the day of the final.

But Vinci's unusual style, full of slices and net rushes and volleying skills she honed while winning a career Grand Slam in doubles, kept Williams off-balance enough to cause problems and prevent the 33-year-old American from becoming the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to win all four major tournaments in a calendar year.

As Williams quickly left the scene, hopping in a waiting black SUV and taking off, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, was explaining to reporters what he called "a bad day, clearly."

He said he could tell before the match that something was off.

"She was very slow. There was no movement with her lower body, so she was in bad positions to be aggressive and play her attacking game," Mouratoglou said. "She couldn't find it today. You don't wake up the same way every day. Some days you feel good, other days you don't feel good. That's life. Usually she finds a way, and today she did not."

Williams had been pushed to the limit before - this was her 12th three-setter in a major this season - but had managed to win titles at the Australian Open on hard courts in January, the French Open on clay courts in June, and Wimbledon on grass courts in July. And she had won five matches on the U.S. Open's hard courts over the past two weeks.

This time, for once, the No. 1-ranked Williams could not pull it out, undone by 40 unforced errors, twice as many as Vinci, including four double-faults. That negated the impact of Williams' 16 aces, including one at 126 mph.

"I thought she played the best tennis in her career," Williams said about Vinci. "She played, literally, out of her mind."

Vinci next faces another Italian making her Grand Slam final debut: 26th-seeded Flavia Pennetta, who eliminated No. 2 Simona Halep 6-1, 6-3 in another, if less-unbelievable, surprise.

The men's final Sunday, in contrast, will be No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 2 Roger Federer in their record-tying 42nd career matchup.

Pennetta, 33, and Vinci, 32, have known each other since they were kids, growing up in towns about 40 miles (65 kilometers) apart on opposite coasts of Puglia, a region in the southeastern heel of Italy's boot-shaped peninsula. They used to meet in local tournaments in their early teens, then paired up to win a French Open junior doubles in their late teens.

Now, all these years later, they will face each other in a stadium in New York with a Grand Slam trophy on the line.

"We'll be as tight as violin strings, both of us," Vinci said.

She gave a thumb's up while noting in English that "an Italian wins, for sure," then pointed to her chest and whispered in Italian, "Me, let's hope."

An intriguing story line, to be sure, but nothing compared to what Williams was chasing: a perfect Grand Slam season.

After all, not only was she 26-0 at those tournaments this year, but her winning streak at majors was 33 matches, because she won last year's U.S. Open. If she had managed to win a fifth consecutive major title, Williams would have raised her total to 22, equaling Graf for the most in the Open era, which began in 1968, and second-most in history behind Margaret Court's 24.

"I never felt that pressure to win here," Williams insisted. "I said that from the beginning."

Her older sister Venus - who pushed her to three sets in the quarterfinals - was in her guest box, and rapper Drake, a pal, was in Arthur Ashe Stadium, too, Friday.

Williams, who clinched the year-end No. 1 ranking despite the loss, grabbed six games in a row to take the first set and go ahead 1-0 in the second. Suddenly, though, Vinci broke to go up 3-2 in the second. When Vinci served out that set, Williams headed to the sideline, cracked her racket against the ground and flung it behind her chair, drawing a code violation warning from the chair umpire.

Vinci noticed.

"I saw she was nervous," Vinci said, "and that helped me."

As the third set wore on, Williams became more and more demonstrative, leaning forward, shaking her fists and screaming, "Come on!" after four points in a row during one stretch. Vinci showed emotion later, closing a spectacular 18-stroke exchange with a volley winner, then cupping her ear with a hand, before pointing to her chest and waving both arms at the spectators, encouraging them to yell for her, too.

That point ended with Williams on a full sprint, stumbling a bit as her momentum carried her to the sideline, where she bent over, chest heaving.

The crowd responded to it all with a standing ovation.

Williams never was able to get back in front. She let a 2-0 lead in the third set slip away, in part by double-faulting on break point to make it 2-1. Williams double-faulted again a few games later, when Vinci broke for 4-3, a lead she did not relinquish.

"I mean, I made a couple of tight shots, to be honest," Williams acknowledged, "but maybe just about two."
 
If that's truly all it was, that's all it took.

Eagles Part Ways With Tim Tebow

Eagles Part Ways With Tim Tebow

PHILADELPHIA, PA – AUGUST 16: Tim Tebow #11 of the
Philadelphia Eagles warms up prior to the preseason game against the
Indianapolis Colts on August 16, 2015 at Lincoln Financial Field in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Tebow Time has expired in Philadelphia. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly announced the team’s 53-man roster on Saturday and it did not include quarterback Tim Tebow.

Tebow was hoping to make a return to the NFL after spending two years away from the league. Chip Kelly and his high-speed offense seemed like the proper attack for Tebow to make a return, but that was not the case.

Tebow finished the preseason with 286 passing yards on 36 attempts. He completed 58.3 percent of his passes and threw for two touchdowns.

He also added a rushing touchdown to go along with 82 rushing yards.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Tim Tebow made Matt Barkley expendable.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, clearing a roster spot for Tebow after he won a preseason competition for the No. 3 quarterback job.

Arizona sent a conditional seventh-round draft pick to Philadelphia for Barkley. A person familiar with the deal said Barkley has to be on the roster for six games for the Eagles to receive the pick in 2016. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because that part of the trade wasn't announced.

Barkley provides depth behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. Logan Thomas and rookie Phillip Sims were competing for the No. 3 job. Sims already tweeted that he was released.

The Cardinals were 6-0 with Palmer as their starter last year and 5-6 without him, including a playoff loss to Carolina. Stanton was 5-3 and Ryan Lindley was 0-3. Palmer missed three games in September and the final seven games after tearing his left ACL in mid-November.

Tebow outplayed Barkley in the preseason and will play behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez unless coach Chip Kelly makes a surprise move this weekend.

Tebow was 11 for 17 for 189 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the New York Jets on Thursday night. Barkley was 4 for 9 for 45 yards and one interception.

Tebow last played in a regular-season game with the Jets in 2012. He was cut by New England in training camp in 2013. He worked as a college football analyst on the SEC Network last year, but got another chance to play in the NFL when the Eagles signed him in the offseason.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner led Florida to the national championship his junior season and was a first-round pick by Denver in 2010. He started 16 games during two seasons with the Broncos, including a playoff victory over Pittsburgh in January 2012. Tebow was traded to the Jets after Denver signed Peyton Manning.

"It's a blessing to be able to play the game that I love," Tebow said after the final preseason game. 

"Sometimes when things are taken away, you realize how much you really love it, and sometimes you love it more after that. So it's not necessarily coming back, but the time away that makes you love it more."

Barkley was a fourth-round pick in 2013. He completed 30 of 50 passes for 300 yards and four interceptions in four games.

Barkley is the career leading passer in Pac-12 Conference and Southern California history. He had 12,327 passing yards and 116 touchdowns for the Trojans.
