George Washington slept here, in South Philadelphia. Dozed in Center City, Chestnut Hill and Mount Airy, too. These days, Washington is sleeping in a one-room, $154-a-month apartment in Germantown. Shares it with two birds, one concrete dog, a half-dozen plants, hundreds of seashells and a tankful of fish. Barring any last-minute change of plans, it's in his little apartment, surrounded by birds, plants, fish, seashells and one fake dog, that George Washington will observe his 70th birthday tomorrow, Washington's birthday.

Just in time for the birthday of the Father of our country comes an exciting new book: George Washington: A Life (Henry Holt, $35) by Willard Sterne Randall. And where it differs from previous books is how alive it makes Washington seem, especially in his formative years. "As a young man," Randall says, "Washington was raw ambition. " Randall, 55, initially dreaded the thought of doing a book on Washington, he says, because "I thought he was so dull. For a couple of years, I had a very hard time getting excited about him. I just thought, 'OK, he was a soldier, OK, he was president, OK, he had false teeth.

IT'S NOT too often a football team holds a get-together in the stands. On the road, no less. But as Germantown hosted George Washington Saturday in a Public AAAA Gold game, a sizable number of Haverford School players, perched high behind Germantown's bench, were among the spectators. "It was more like a practice," James Chakey said. "That was how the coaches looked at it. The majority of us came from taking the SATs. We didn't have much knowledge of Washington before that game.

WITH LESS than 2 minutes remaining in Archbishop Ryan High's 21-0 Thanksgiving takedown of George Washington, Samir Bullock, the Raiders' star running back, broke the huddle with a shoe untied. Perhaps his fingers were numb from the frigid cold and windswept conditions at Mickey Young Memorial Stadium, or maybe his offensive line was just taking care of its guy. Senior right tackle Joe Hansbury took a knee and did the loop-swoop-and-pull duties. "I was standing there and saw his shoe was untied," said the 6-3, 280-pounder from Somerton.

George Washington's football players oozed so much intensity yesterday, perhaps they thought the "M" on their opponents' helmets stood for "Media. " Maybe the Eagles pictured every Jules Mastbaum Tech player popping open a note pad, or sitting in front of a computer terminal to pound out a story. The newspapers did not lose Public North football games by scores of 39-0 to Abraham Lincoln and 44-6 to Frankford in consecutive weeks. But in the aftermath, some sports writers lost the respect of Washington coach Ron Cohen.

The land is not particularly unusual. The 4.6 acres include a ridgeline, slope, wooded area, and open ground. What gives the tract value is the history that unfolded around it on Jan. 3, 1777, when Gen. George Washington helped rally American soldiers and turn the tide of battle against the British outside Princeton. Now the once-privately owned parcel is part of Princeton Battlefield State Park. Its acquisition for $850,000 will be marked at 10 a.m. Sept. 16 during public ribbon-cutting ceremonies at the Colonnade, on the north side of Mercer Street in the park.

Quinton Rose, a 6-foot-5 combination guard from Bishop Kearney in Rochester, N.Y., has become the first Temple basketball recruit for the class of 2016. Rose told Scout.com that he had visited Temple and George Washington. A Temple source confirmed the commitment. "His strength is his IQ and his versatility," said Allen Rubin, a recruiting analyst for the Hoop Scoop website. "He is a good defender. His mid-range shot is good, but I would say his three-point shot is something that needs improvement.

Tucked away in a leafy corner of Bucks County, the Moland House commemorates 13 stressful days that George Washington and his Continental Army spent there during the Revolutionary War. It also recalls another bygone era: when Washington and Harrisburg had more money to fund historical preservation. The government programs that two decades ago helped salvage the 18th-century farmhouse - it had become a teenage hangout, replete with spray-painted pentagrams - have been gutted since the economic downturn.

Last Sunday Temple was as deflated a group as one could envision after the Owls found out they were the 69th team in a 68-team NCAA field. Fast-forward after two NIT wins, including a 90-77 triumph Sunday over George Washington at the Liacouras Center, and the mind-set is completely different. While Temple may never get over the NCAA snub, the Owls have put things behind them and have earned a final home game in Wednesday's NIT quarterfinal. Temple (25-10) will host the winner of Monday's game between Texas A&M and Louisiana Tech on Wednesday at a time to be determined.

The worn and delicate newspaper under careful watch inside Deptford Township's municipal building - an inked record that has survived since the presidency of George Washington - does not mention the Gloucester County town. Yet those who know the events of Jan. 9, 1793, understand that a small story tucked inside, about a "majestic" hot-air balloon flight, has Deptford written all over it. On that day 222 years ago, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Blanchard left Philadelphia for the sky in a spectacle that attracted the nation's first commander-in-chief and future Presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe.

It was about this time a year ago when La Salle began its improbable run in the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs. Last season's runner-up finish started with a victory at Southern. This year, the Explorers hope their triumph Thursday night at the same locale is the start of something special again. Behind stingy defense and offensive efficiency, La Salle overwhelmed George Washington, 73-44, in a District 12 seeding game to earn the third and final seed in the AAAA state playoffs. "We were definitely a little worried coming in, just because there's a lot of pressure on us," senior forward Dave Krmpotich said.

IT WAS ABOUT this time last year when La Salle started its improbable run in the Class AAAA state playoffs. In fact, last season's runner-up finish began with a seeding-game victory at Southern High. Now, the Explorers hope last night's triumph at the same locale is the start of something special Part 2. "We were definitely a little worried coming in just because there's a lot of pressure on us," said senior forward Dave Krmpotich. "We made a deep run in states last year and if we didn't even make it this year it would've been a knock on us. But we just tried to get out there, play our game and we weren't going to let this be our last high school basketball game.

Two thoughts refused to leave Sammy Foreman's mind on Friday. The first concerned the mortality of his high school basketball career, while the other helped him stave off its unwelcome end. The Martin Luther King High senior guard was important in helping the Cougars fend off George Washington, 59-46, in the Public Leauge Class AAAA final. "Today was either: win, or lose and I'll never play another high school basketball game again," Foreman said. "I just didn't want to lose.

If George Washington senior Jerome Blume were a cartoon character, he would probably be running up and down the court with a lightbulb flickering above his head. The 6-foot-5 forward notched his third straight double-double Thursday with 14 points and 14 rebounds in Washington's 67-61 win over visiting Boys' Latin. "I think the lightbulb went on the last couple games," Eagles head coach John Creighton said. "He's a freak athlete, and when he wants to, he can take over a game.
