I am writing in reference to the decision to give Cleveland the honor of playing home to the rock-and-roll Hall of Fame, when we know Philadelphia is undoubtedly the birthplace of rock-and-roll. I urge all Philadelphia musicians who believe that Philadelphia is the birthplace of rock-and-roll to withhold their material from Cleveland and for Philadelphia to establish a rock-and-roll museum here. I urge people to call or write to city officials, radio stations, musicians, etc., and give their support to this issue.

The AFL has wanted to create a rival for the Soul since the team joined the league in 2004. It once put Dallas in the same division, hoping to mimic Eagles-Cowboys, but that didn't work. There was a brief period when the Soul and the New York Dragons used to fight each other before exhibition games, but that fizzled out when the New York franchise folded. Currently, Cleveland is the villain of choice among Soul followers. A rivalry needs animosity (which the Soul and Gladiators share)

The Denver Nuggets won their ninth straight game with a 111-103 victory Saturday night over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The all-star guard picked up his fourth foul with five minutes remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading by 72-61.

THE CLEVELAND Gladiators got under the Soul's collective skin before the game and stayed there long enough to ruin Philadelphia's home opener, 68-62. A game that was supposed to be further affirmation of the strides the Soul has taken in burying last year's mess deep in the litter box instead revealed some clumps. Cleveland quarterback John Dutton threw nine touchdown passes, but it was the Soul's lack of discipline that had head coach Doug Plank fuming afterward. "Tonight, we established a new low for our team," Plank said.

Never mind that Cleveland has been most famous in recent years for rivers that are so polluted they catch fire and the reek from Lake Erie that's severe enough to singe the eyebrows - just wait until 2080. While New York City will be parched, Iowa and Nebraska will be a desert, and Miami will be fighting the ocean in its streets, a new study shows that Cleveland will be one of the "garden spots of tomorrow. " In the Great Greenhouse of the next century, as predicted by scientists studying the effects of pollution on global weather, Cleveland will have a balmy climate and plenty of water.

The Cleveland Gladiators got under the Soul's collective skin before their game and stayed there long enough to ruin the team's Arena Football League home opener, 68-62, on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. Cleveland quarterback John Dutton threw nine touchdown passes, but it was the Soul's lack of discipline that had head coach Doug Plank fuming afterward.

SOUL DEFENSIVE back Rayshaun Kizer, one of the team's leaders, did not mince words when asked about tomorrow's road playoff game against the best team in the league. Kizer does not care that Cleveland went 17-1, that they didn't lose a game at home and that they beat the Soul twice. He even brushed aside his own team's 30-point loss to Pittsburgh a week ago, chalking it up to self-destruction caused by internal pressure. "We know that we're better than them," Kizer said. "It's a good matchup on paper, but we're better than them.

How long ago does last year's All-Star Game seem to Curt Schilling? Back then, the Phillies were about 700 games under .500. Back then, the Schilling-to-the-Indians trade rumors were flying. Back then, he was in Cleveland, wearing a Phillies uniform, being treated as if he were Rocky Colavito. He got a standing O before the game from 44,000 people. He got a sales pitch from his limo driver about the greatness of Cleveland. He was The Man. And yesterday, on the day before his second All-Star Game, he was just another guy. "I didn't even get a limo from the airport this year.

There was a time in this city when everyone knew the name - and not just those who drank his family's famous beer. He raced in the Indianapolis 500, got into fistfights with cops, flew a Wright brothers biplane, and joined Pancho Villa's rebellion in Mexico. He was a rogue, a draft dodger and a fugitive. And 50 years ago yesterday, he died a madman. Grover Cleveland Bergdoll, heir to one of the city's greatest beer empires, never worked in a brewery. But the so-called Playboy of the Eastern Seaboard was surely the most notorious character in Philadelphia's long, sudsy beer history.

The Jan. 16 NFL playoff doubleheader began in New England with 11 consecutive Tom Brady throws and ended in the Arizona desert with a series of spectacular pass plays. Overall, during that pair of pitch-and-catch victories by the Patriots and Cardinals, the four quarterbacks combined to throw the ball an astonishing 177 times. In the NFL of 2016, those games were hardly aberrations. The just-completed regular season was the pass-happiest in history. Teams averaged a record 35.7 throws a game, which led to league passing records for average completions (22.5)

THE SLIMMED-DOWN Arena Football League announced its schedule Thursday and among the highlights was a reduction from 18 games to 16. The Soul's first game is April 1 at Cleveland and the home opener is 10 days later against Jacksonville, which upset the Soul in last year's conference championship game. Quarterback Dan Raudabaugh and leading receiver Ryan McDaniel are two of the Soul's key pieces under contract for 2016. "I fully expect for us to be there again at the end," said John Adams, the team's chief operating officer.

76ers coach Brett Brown said it was one of the best things he had heard in a while. Jahlil Okafor approached Brown in the locker room Monday after the team's loss to Cleveland. The rookie center told Brown that he wanted to become a better defensive rebounder. Okafor had grabbed just one defensive rebound in the game. He wanted his coach to help him improve. "You just want to hug him right there and then on the spot," Brown said. "Anybody that has that mind-set to truly want to do it, that's the starting place - to be able to make hits, follow flights of balls, and understand the logical place that balls will come off based on the angle they were shot.

Second in an occasional series on the 100th anniversary of the Phillies' first pennant. The late-inning drama that produced the Yankees' 3-2 win in Game 3 of their 1950 World Series matchup with the Phillies was enough to occupy the sportswriters in Yankee Stadium's press box. The strange visitor seated in a back-row corner hardly crossed their radar. Some of those who noticed the old man were spooked. His right ear was missing. His face was an angry red, his scowl embedded. A thick shock of white hair was as disheveled as the clothes he wore.

IF FAMILIARITY breeds contempt, the Soul and Cleveland must really hate each other by now. After a decisive win in Cleveland over the weekend, the Soul (15-3) will turn around and host the Gladiators (8-10) this Saturday at 5 p.m. in an AFL playoff game at the Wells Fargo Center. It will be the teams' fourth meeting this year, and the seventh in just the last two seasons. The Soul won the first three meetings this season, while Cleveland won all three last year - including a playoff game with a field goal at the buzzer.

AT THE END of the day, Trump gonna Trump. You were expecting anything else, America? Don't be "stupid" . . . like our nation's leaders. The much-anticipated first televised Republican presidential debate last night in Cleveland - the prime-time main course with surprise front-runner Donald Trump and his top nine rivals - was even more about the New York billionaire than an episode of his former reality show "The Apprentice. " Whether you're part of the majority of Americans who disapprove of Trump, his insult-flavored style of infotainment politics and his hot-button remarks about immigrants, or the 20-plus percent of GOP voters who revel in his lack of "political correctness," the short-fingered vulgarian of Manhattan real estate did not disappoint at the Quicken Loans Arena.

Shave the head. Go all Daddy Warbucks on us. Maybe croon a little "Tomorrow. " The sun'll come ooout to-Morrow ! Think about it. Takes away every hair joke, provides a stark, lasting visual and flat out steals the show. What could anyone else on stage do or say to command any attention or post-debate chatter?
