I travelled to Atlantic City this week to appear on the popular Harry Hurley talk radio show on WPG, which stands for World’s Play Ground, a leftover moniker from a time gone by. Since I had to be up early in the morning, I was put up in Resorts International.
My father was born and raised in Atlantic City, but I am not an “AC guy,” meaning I don’t gamble and I have a family. Ocean City is my shore resort of choice. I’m not certain anyone in the area chooses Atlantic City for the summer or for the week, just for the night or a wild weekend. But I checked and found there was a pool at Resorts and so I brought the wife and kids. They could stay safe poolside, while I made my radio appearance, and then we would head to Ocean City for the rest of the day.
At least that was the plan.

And here’s a similar situation on 11th Street between Spruce and Pine.
First, the Phillies made no trades at the deadline. Then Cliff Lee went on the DL. All hope is not lost — there’s still another trade deadline at the end of August for players who clear waivers — but it’s fair to say baseball fans in Philadelphia are a might grumpy this morning.
They’re as raw and sore as Cliff Lee’s elbow, one might say.
