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 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. "Tonight, we established a new low for our team," Plank said. "This was certainly the worst game of the season for us. I'm just disappointed.

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.
