You've got to love a contest whose primary rule is "you heave, you leave," one whose participants have nicknames like "Sloth," "War Pig," "Worm Eater" and "El Wingador. " And love it people do. So much so that today's Wing Bowl VII, SportsRadio 610 WIP's wing-eating contest, will be held at the spacious First Union Spectrum for the second straight year. From its humble beginnings in the lobby of the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel, the eating binge had close to 8,000 spectators last year and they very well could top that number today.

Owen Hibberd, Conestoga's sensational 98-pound junior, tried to view his 2-2, 3-0 overtime loss to Harry S. Truman's Dan Bing in Saturday's night's Southeast Regional Wrestling Tournament finals in a positive light, but he wasn't successful. "The loss will probably make me more ready for states," he said after his first setback in 33 outings. He considered what he had just said and swallowed hard. "One thing a loss does is jolt your mind," he finally he announced, staring straight ahead.

Google's bound to boggle some minds today. Gone is that familiar clean, white home page. A colorful photographic image is plastered across the background instead - a la Microsoft's year-old search engine Bing. Don't like that particular picture? You have lots of options - except for one. You can choose from a gallery of alternate images. You can log in and upload your own photo, using a new feature introduced last week. But want the old logo on a white page back?

A key defense witness in the murder trial of Thomas W. Hawkins Jr. transformed a Montgomery County courtroom into a science classroom yesterday, explaining to the jury that there was no DNA evidence linking Hawkins to the sexual assault and death of his 14-year-old niece. But David H. Bing, a forensic expert who runs CBR Laboratories in Boston, said he could not rule out that Hawkins had strangled and stabbed Andrea Thomas on June 4, 1989, in her West Pottsgrove home. And during cross-examination, Bing acknowledged that he and his office had made several errors in compiling the report on which Hawkins' attorney had based his defense.

It sounds like the opening line of a bad joke: A mime, a dance teacher, a personal chef, and a print-shop owner were having lunch one day . . . But they, along with about 150 other businesswomen, really did get together one recent Tuesday to eat chicken and asparagus and celebrate the 16th anniversary of the Women's Referral Network of Chester County. "The reason I like this group is, yes, we socialize and have lunch, but then it's bing, bing, bing, let's get things done. This is business, man!

Zinka Milanov, 83, a leading dramatic soprano for the Metropolitan Opera for 28 years until her retirement in 1966, died Tuesday. A spokeswoman at Lenox Hill Hospital said she had had a stroke and had been hospitalized since Saturday. The Yugoslavian-born singer signed her first Metropolitan Opera contract for $75 a week in 1937 and was the company's most prolific Aida for the next 28 years. She brought timbre and pianissimo to that role 86 times - 49 in performance at the Met and 37 on tour.

So there were the Phillies, late on a gloomy Sunday afternoon at the Vet, watching their season flash in front of their eyes. They were showing all the signs of a team on the brink of nervous collapse, and now their hopes seemed to be ending before their fifth game did. It's not possible, of course, to be knocked out of the pennant race one week into the season. It just seemed that way. Four losses to open the season had put the Phillies on edge. Also on the edge. And now, with the arrival of the defending world champeen New York Mets just 48 hours away, a seemingly secure three-run lead against the Chicago Cubs had vanished with breathtaking swiftness.

With less than 20 seconds left in his 98-pound quarterfinal match with Emmaus' Glenn Kepic, Conestoga junior Owen Hibberd stumbled. At that instant, his chance to win a state championship slipped away. Kepic pounced on Hibberd and forced him to spend the next several seconds on his back. Just like that, a match that had been deadlocked, 4-4, and seemingly headed into overtime, became a 9-4 Kepic victory. Suddenly, Hibberd was thrust into the consolation bracket, where he remained for the duration of the 1986 Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Wrestling Championships - commonly known as states - at HersheyPark Arena.

In an era when audiences are hungry for performers who wield musical thunderbolts, you don't quite know what to say when encountering someone who can play Zeus, but doesn't. Outside the door of a practice room, you hear power unleashed as pianist Lars Vogt runs through the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 in preparation for that night's concert with the New York Philharmonic. In Europe, Vogt is known as one of the leading pianists of his generation. But in Philadelphia, and much of the rest of North America, this young German bear cub of a pianist is known for the discretion of his chamber music artistry, as in last season's recital with violinist Sarah Chang at the Kimmel Center.

No one pays me to watch Scandinavian TV. With more than 400 scripted shows a year to watch in the U.S., I'm goofing off every time I click on a series with subtitles and Nordic accents. But I can't help myself. It's not just fear of missing out, although I hated waiting for the U.S. remake of Forbrydelsen , which here became AMC's The Killing , only to be told the Danish original was better. What we don't get in a remake are the differences in the way societies view everything from marriage to murder.

In a Northeast Philadelphia apartment nearly 40 years ago, Irv Slifkin and his movie-mad pals pioneered an American pastime: binge watching. "We had a continuous film festival," recalls Slifkin, 59, describing how a trunk-size, top-loading VCR, a console color TV, and a stack of newfangled videotapes kept people couch-bound for a long weekend. These days, Slifkin lives in Delran, writes and lectures about movies - "I've seen thousands, too many to count" - and does screenings at Philadelphia-area venues such as the Moorestown Library.

The final hours for Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny, a former America's Junior Miss scholarship winner from South Jersey, began when she left a New York City bar in the wee hours last Oct. 4 with HBO producer Marc Johnson, who had offered her cocaine, authorities said. A cab brought them to a building on West 16th Street in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, where Johnson's longtime friend - and alleged drug dealer - James Holder lived in a third-floor unit, federal authorities said. It was in this building that emergency responders later found Cerveny, a 38-year-old dermatologist and married mother of three young children, unconscious in the first-floor doorway.

A weird thing happened on television Monday. On a single night, three series - the CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin and Syfy's The Magicians - all mentioned the Bechdel test. Named for cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who shares credit with her friend Liz Wallace, the test rates works of fiction: If a piece includes two women, preferably with names, who talk about something other than a man, it passes. It's tougher than it sounds - I'm not sure all the shows that referenced it could pass it most weeks.

Question. Although I've never had any problem with classical addictions such as alcohol or narcotics, I've struggled with procrastination, tardiness, perfectionism, and being overweight. I've often felt a vague affinity with the term "addictive personality," as that is how I feel when immersed in a good book, TV series (Netflix is a binge-enabler), interesting website, or meal. The enjoyment of the moment turns into 10 or 20 or more because the next is so tantalizingly available.

Mary Ciammetti teared up in her Conshohocken living room as she showed the video of her youngest son. It's been a little more than a year since he died of alcohol poisoning, despite his Temple University roommates' frantic attempts to save him with CPR. There was Christian Ciammetti having a bath in the kitchen sink at 16 months, then wearing a suit at First Communion. In his high school football uniform, with his girlfriend, at graduation, on skis, posing with a big fish he'd reeled in. Then the music - Avicii's "Wake Me Up" - stopped, and the images played silently: A refrigerator with empty liquor bottles and a red Solo cup. An unmade bed. A hospital room, with Christian tethered to a mesh of tubes and IVs. And finally, Christian lying in a casket in a red flannel shirt, dead at 20. He had been a junior, a young man with dyslexia who shined through his major, landscape architecture.

Since America's response to its grotesque gun violence is more guns, it's hardly surprising that in the face of a campus binge-drinking epidemic, more colleges have decided to sell alcohol at sporting events. Having already ceded authority over their athletic programs to boosters, shoe companies, and TV networks, university presidents have more recently been busy surrendering to powerful brewers. "One of the main issues confronting universities is alcohol abuse," West Virginia University president Gordon Gee said earlier this year.

'Undateable' live The business model at NBC still works best when people watch shows when they're on, which is one reason the home of "Saturday Night Live" is so interested in live anything lately, from musicals to the possibly mistitled "Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris. " As "Undateable" returns for a third season tomorrow with a one-hour premiere, it's expanding last season's live-episode experiment to the whole season.
