NEW YORK - Even at a time of joy and celebration, there is sadness. Even when he is laughing and smiling, there are tears. Bittersweet? Definitely. After 28 years of waiting, Claude Humphrey finally is where he belongs, finally is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But the love of his life wasn't there with him on Saturday night when he got the news, and she won't be there with him in July when they unveil his bronze bust in Canton, Ohio. Sandra Humphrey, Claude's wife for more than 45 years, passed away in July.

Andrew O'Neill wasn't seriously considering Sacred Heart University. But an old teammate and a new friend changed his mind. O'Neill, a senior at Washington Township who was a first-team All-South Jersey selection by The Inquirer as an all-purpose offensive player, committed to Sacred Heart on a football scholarship earlier this week. O'Neill also had an offer from Wagner. He made his decision after visits to Wagner and Sacred Heart the last two weekends. "It just felt like the right place for me," O'Neill said of Sacred Heart.

Calling in Thursday morning to a Philadelphia sports radio show, Gov. Christie gave his first live interview since the George Washington Bridge controversy erupted three weeks ago. But the Republican governor faced no questions on Angelo Cataldi's show on 94 WIP Sportsradio about the allegations that have clouded the start of his second term. The hosts said ground rules were set and the conversation with Christie, which followed a discussion with a Playboy model about Friday's Wing Bowl, would stick to sports and the Super Bowl.

Long before Corey Johnson had the nickname "National," before anyone called him "the commissioner" or the "Godfather," he was a boy in Logan with a stack of white pages and a razor blade. Johnson would pore through the pages of the phone book until he found the name he was looking for: Carmichael , Campbell , Harris . He'd slice it from the pages, careful not to let the edges curl up, and paste it to the back of a miniature football player with his mother's nail glue.

NEW YORK - Michael Vick all but made it official yesterday. He wants to be a starting quarterback in 2014. That isn't happening with the Eagles. So Vick will hit the free-agent market in March. This is not stunning news, but when the 2013 Birds broke camp for the last time a little more than 3 weeks ago following their first-round playoff loss to New Orleans, Vick was still keeping the door open a crack, even as teammates visited his locker stall for farewell hugs. It seemed possible that if nobody wanted to sign him as a starter, Vick might be amenable to backing up Nick Foles again, given their strong relationship.

Shawnee senior Anthony DiOrio, The Inquirer's South Jersey Offensive Player of the Year, has committed to Dayton University on a football scholarship. DiOrio's father, former Cherokee star Rob DiOrio, played at Dayton in the early 1980s. "He didn't push me, but he's happy I picked his alma mater," Anthony DiOrio said Friday. DiOrio committed to Dayton on Thursday night, he said, adding that he was recruited as the team's "Flyer," a defensive position that is a kind of rover - part linebacker, part strong safety.

STATE COLLEGE - James Franklin was perched above the Beaver Stadium press room, watching his newly hired assistant coaches address the Penn State media for the first time. The new leader of the Nittany Lions wanted in on the action. "How many points are we going to score this year?" Franklin inquired abruptly from above to his offensive coordinator, John Donovan. "As many as it takes to win," Donovan quickly replied. The camaraderie among Franklin and his staff was evident yesterday, as 10 new assistant football coaches were introduced.

So Penn Staters, you're still ticked at Bill O'Brien for bolting to Houston after just two years - but perfectly fine with James Franklin's leaving Vanderbilt after three seasons and poaching every Vandy recruit he can get? It's natural if that, in fact, is exactly how you feel. That's certainly Franklin's position. Franklin makes it clear that he doesn't really buy into the idea that his recruits are actually going to a school for a particular education only available at that school.
