The Eagles’ Unbelievable Win

Plus outgoing U.S. Rep Patrick Murphy gets his own triumph, more jobs for NJ, the $1 million donation to a city school from a Main Line couple, and more of what Philly's talking about this morning

Eagles Beat Giants. They were losing. And then, just like that, they won. Or, maybe, Michael Vick won. Let’s just say this: The Scoop picked one hell of a game to watch at McMenamin’s. [700 Level, CSN]

Patrick Murphy’s Gay Rights Victory. The U.S. Rep and Iraq war veteran recently lost his bid for reelection in Bucks County, but on Saturday Barack Obama called him as he was leaving a Flyers game to let him know about the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Cool. What Murphy and other local pols think of the vote at the link. [Inquirer]

New Jersey Jobs Growth. The state gained almost 10,000 private sector jobs in November. A fact that’s either “encouraging” or “statistically insignificant,” depending on who you ask. The Scoop’s sure the people with new paychecks just see it as a good thing. [WSJ]

Gambling Away. That revoked Foxwoods license could go to another part of PA … or nowhere at all. [CBS3]

Chris Christie On 60 Minutes Last Night. The NJ governor was part of the news show’s piece on states that are taking drastic measures to cut spending. He said, “The day of reckoning has arrived.” So much for holiday cheer. [Fox29,]

Main Line Couple Gives $1 Million to City School. James and Agnes Kim have already given a ton of dough to Philadelphia’s Gesu School, but they’re not done yet. [Main Line Media News]
