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.

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.

Michael T. Dolan is a writer from West Chester The sound of stone and gravel crushing under tires signaled my escape was at hand. The small lot sat empty, as it usually is, and the trailhead stood in front of me, waiting patiently as it always does. The asphalt road, with its winding path to the impatient world I was running from, lay behind me. I stepped out of the car, and soon my feet touched unpaved earth. My solitary sentence began. Such prison breaks have become increasingly necessary for my soul, as day by day it seems this extroverted world into which I was born grows more and more extroverted, thriving on ever-increasing noise, exposure, activity, and connectivity.

As soon as pro-immigration demonstrators were cleared from the Broad Street ramp of the Vine Street Expressway on Tuesday morning - including four hauled off in handcuffs - other advocates assembled five blocks away at City Hall to get out the vote against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. "From his promise to create a deportation force, to calling immigrants rapists and killers, Trump has shown he stands squarely against us," said Lizet Ocampo, Latino vote director of the People for the American Way, a national progressive advocacy group that headlined the City Hall speak-out.

HOUSTON -- Phil Booth sat at his locker, answering all the questions. Did Booth have any idea he would be answering these exact same ones for the rest of his life? That the name Phil Booth will always conjure an April night in Houston, 2016? His shots will always fall. Villanova always wins. Just outside a locker room inside NRG Stadium were six life-size action photographs of Villanova Wildcats, the same men inside the room. The players themselves had looked a little wide-eyed at those photos.

A tractor-trailer burst into flames along the Pennsylvania Turnpike Tuesday morning after crashing near an empty toll plaza at the Old Delaware River Bridge Interchange in Bucks County, creating a mammoth traffic jam that persisted into the afternoon. No injuries were reported. Authorities said the truck hit a traffic attenuator or 'shock absorber' positioned in front of the Bristol toll plaza around 9:15 a.m. The impact caused the truck - which was carrying electrical supplies but nothing hazardous - to catch fire, officials said.

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.
