Phil Rizzuto, a Yankees broadcaster for 39 years, a member of the Hall of Fame and perhaps the most popular announcer in New York, has quit his job. Rizzuto's decision stemmed from him not being allowed to attend the funeral of Mickey Mantle. At the behest of station executives at WPIX-TV, Rizzuto stayed in Boston and broadcast the Yankees-Red Sox game. He left the booth after five innings, too distraught to continue, and left the stadium. "After I saw the funeral on television, I said, 'This is terrible.

Comcast SportsNet swung and missed last year in its first attempt to reconfigure its booth for Phillies telecasts. After clumsily disposing of Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews, the suits at Comcast decided upon Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs, two members of the 2008 World Series championship team, as their replacements. Brian Monihan, the Comcast SportsNet president, never provided a public explanation as to why he thought the change needed to be made, but he did say, "I hope these guys have very long careers and are successful together.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno has been looking forward all season to coaching an entire game from the sideline as he slowly recovers from injuries to his shoulder and his pelvis. They are the result of a collision with wide receiver Devon Smith early in preseason practice. However, following a near accident during Saturday's game against Iowa, Paterno could be returning to the press box for the foreseeable future if not for the rest of the season. As he had in the previous two games, Paterno coached against Iowa from the sideline in the first half then headed to the coaches' booth in the press box for the second half.

Sitting in a corner booth at PYT as the lunch-crowd hum blended with the thump of some '80s dance tune, Tommy Up laughed and clicked to refresh his e-mail. "You rock!" read the latest, No. 2,105. "Proud of you," went another. Then, this flattery: "Everybody needs a boss like you. " A pastor from Delaware passed along his approval. So did a cabdriver from Illinois. Alexander Grover sent "encouragement from Boston. " "The response has been insane," Up said, talking about his decision Monday to post on Facebook a photo of a receipt that showed Eagles running back LeSean McCoy tipped 20 cents on a $61 lunch.

Do not - repeat - do not eat before attending the Philadelphia International Women's Show. You will want to save all available tummy space for free samples. The price of admission ($7 at the door) buys access to seminars - a new one every half hour, to beauty and fashion shows sponsored by J.C. Penney, scheduled through the day, to cooking demonstrations, to medical screenings and to a veritable shopping mall created inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center. And the reason they hand out shopping bags at the Women's Show is because so many of the exhibitors pass out free samples, discount coupons, recipe booklets and health tip brochures.

Margaret Schifter has made more fudge for the Devon Horse Show candy booth over the years than anyone else - nearly four tons of it. "I've made 7,858 pounds since 1977, when I started keeping records," Schifter said. "Everything smells chocolate. My house smells of chocolate. My clothes smell of chocolate," Schifter said. "Deliverymen come to the door and say, 'Oh, this is where the smell comes from.' " Schifter, who has five children, got involved with the horse show because of her daughter.

When the state set up lottery concessions to sell tickets, it never figured that the underworld would move into one of its booths to share in the take. But the booth inside a doughnut shop at Chelten and Chew avenues was going both ways last Sept. 7. Customers could play the state lottery or the illegal lottery, according to Assistant District Attorney Joseph Wolfson. Yesterday, Municipal Judge Barbara S. Gilbert convicted two men of running an elaborate illegal lottery from the booth.

Stanley M. Booth seems not to have thought that he could spread himself too thin. At Gloucester City High School, he taught math from 1965 until he retired in 2000, while also teaching adults in the subject in night classes from 1970 to 1980. "We had some neighbors" who were dropouts, his wife, Jacqueline, said, "and he talked them into going back to get their high school diplomas. " It was typical of a man who, she said, had known success early. Mr. Booth had been a star basketball forward at what is now Rowan University, scoring more than 1,000 points, his wife said, and in his graduation year, the Sportsmen Athletic Club of Gloucester City named him its Sportsman of the Year for 1965.

PITTSBURGH - Phil Booth Sr. went to nearly all of Villanova's games this season to watch his son play as a freshman for Jay Wright on one of the best college teams in the country. Wright caught a glimpse of the father here and there, but the two didn't have a conversation until after the NCAA tournament bracket was announced Sunday. "I grabbed him and said, 'Hey, you are the best parent in the world,' " Wright said. " 'Anybody else, with a kid as good a player as yours and only getting 16 minutes a game, would have been bitching and complaining all year.

I HAPPENED to be walking out of the gym at the same time as Villanova coach Jay Wright after his team had crushed Seton Hall on Feb. 16. On the way to our cars, as we talked about Villanova's season, he mentioned how they were trying a model for success that included juniors and seniors starting while freshmen and sophomores get minutes and get better. Call it "Four and Done. " Wright specifically mentioned freshman Phil Booth as a player who really gets what they are trying to do. In fact, the coach had talked about Booth at his news conference that night, saying he's never had a player with such obvious ability so readily accept the limited role he had been given.

BEFORE THE endless mornings and afternoons of summer basketball games for AAU athletes, Phil Booth Sr. was thinking differently. He sat in his old car years ago, his budding son beside him as they drove through different parts of Maryland. The middle-aged Northeast High and Coppin State star dropped off his son at the concrete playgrounds of Owings Mills or Pikesville or even back at his stomping grounds at Coppin State. Booth Sr. was attempting to mold his son in the ways the late John Hardnett had molded him. The father was trying to shape the next "Philly-tough" guard, even though his family now lived 100 miles from the City of Brotherly Love.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Mike Schmidt, the Hall of Fame third baseman, will broadcast 13 Phillies games for Comcast SportsNet this season, as the network continues to overhaul its announcing talent. Schmidt, 64, will work every Sunday home game. He will team with Tom McCarthy and either Jamie Moyer or Matt Stairs in a three-man booth. Comcast replaced Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews in January when it agreed to a TV rights deal with the Phillies worth more than $2.5 billion. "Michael Jack Schmidt is one of the iconic names in Philadelphia Phillies history," Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia president Brian Monihan said in a statement.

ONE OF THE FEW negatives I have discovered in my quarter of a century as a sports journalist is that the job has taken away some of the enjoyment I used to have when I just watched the games for fun. I grew up listening to legendary Baltimore Orioles and Colts radio voice Chuck Thompson, but left Maryland not too long after he retired in 1987, the same year I graduated from the University of Maryland. From then on, sports became a career, not so much a source of entertainment.
