Donald Trump Gets A Philly Cheesesteak At Geno’s.

I really like to know what kind Donald Trump got.  Now, I guess he couldn’t hang out and eat it with all that Secret Service around.   This is at 9th and Wharton people.  Trump had a rally in Chester tonight. Geno’s Steaks Adopts English-Only Ordering Policy!

Cira Centre South, Philadelphia, PA.

The skyline of Philly is looking so different. I remember back in the day when no building in the City which would rise above this statue, William Penn above City Hall.  That ended on March 1987 construction of the One Liberty Place skyscraper, which exceeded the height of William Penn’s statue atop Philadelphia City Hall.  But I do miss the old Post Office at Market across from 30th Street.

Via University of Penn

The 49-story, 730-foot FMC Tower fronting Walnut Street will offer panoramic views of the Schuylkill River, Center City and Penn Park. The mixed use tower will house the global headquarters of the specialty chemical company, FMC Corporation. The University of Pennsylvania will be a major office tenant leasing 100,000 GSF for administrative offices. The tower’s upper most floors will contain 260 extended stay luxury apartments, operated by a.k.a Korman Suites. An amenity floor bridges these uses and includes a spa and fitness center, private room for entertaining, and a conference center. The lobby level will feature an upscale restaurant.

ESPN College Game Day Arrives In Philadelphia.

I was an undergrad at Temple mid to late 70’s. We had a great Football team back then. Almost went to the Liberty Bowl if we would have beat Cincinnati one year. There was the Garden State Bowl in 1979. Two trips to Japan to play Grambling and Boston College. There wasn’t any cable or Internet back then. Times have definitely changed.

I would have been there on Market Street today. Whoot, Whoot!

Looks like Chip Kelly’s gameday play card made it, S8. These signs are a marketing genius. Hire Temple Grads.

Go Temple Owls Beat Notre Dame. I am a proud alumni.

J.C. Dobbs on South Street has closed.

I spent many University days down there. Awesome music but it is a sign of the times unfortunately.

Via Philly.com

The Legendary Dobbs – which traces its South Street lineage to the mid-1970s when it was the hippest street in town – took to Facebook to announce its shutdown:

 The Legendary Dobbs is unfortunately closed and all future events are canceled, due to circumstances beyond our control. If you have purchased a ticket on line, your purchase will be refunded. If you are a promoter and have paid a deposit to hold a date, your deposit will be refunded. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

NFL Philadelphia Eagles Win 27-7 Vs New York Giants.

I rushed home from a killer spin class, then picked up a Domino’s pizza.  Returned home, placed ESPN on and watched the Birds win vs. Giants 27-7.  But the G Men made the first TD.   Then the Eagle’s defense got fired up especially DeMeco Ryans.  They are awesome. Our offense still needs work, can’t have all those interceptions Bradford.  I still believe in the long term you will not go deep into the playoffs without a solid O ( that includes the O line b/c the game is won at the line of scrimmage) but defense wins you Superbowl’s.

Fly Eagles Fly.

Pope Francis, Mass On Parkway, Philadelphia, PA.

Pope Francis stated,

Holiness is always tied to little gestures. These little gestures are those we learn at home, in the family; they get lost amid all the other things we do, yet they do make each day different. They are the quiet things done by mothers and grandmothers, by fathers and grandfathers, by children. They are little signs of tenderness, affection and compassion. Faith grows when it is lived and shaped by love. Our families — our homes — are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life and life to become faith.”

I ask you to pray for me,”Don’t forget!”

I will not Holy Father.

JFK Stadium, Philly Remembers.

Now, stands the Wells Fargo Center in it’s place as it was demolished in 1993.

It hosted Rock concerts, Pro football teams, everything that was special in Philly from 1926.

My last venue there was The Amnesty Concert, Sept. 19, 1988.

Pierre Robert of WMMR lists this as the #3, Top 5 Philly Stadium Concerts of All Time. I agree as there was  Sting, Tracy Chapman, Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel rocking it together with collaborations among each other. So special.
