Kip Patton caught the pass and immediately turned upfield. He shrugged off an attempted tackler and turned on the jets before finally being tackled on the Tulane 5-yard line. All told it was a 43-yard completion, showing both the big-play ability and improvement in the 6-foot-4, 241-pound tight end from Norristown High. It was one of the Owls' many highlight plays from a 49-10 win over visiting Tulane on Saturday. "I caught the ball and felt somebody hit me and bounce off and it was a great feeling," said Patton, whose 5-0 Owls host Central Florida (0-6)

NO ONE can say they didn't see this coming. "Blurred Lines" singer Robin Thicke and his beautiful actress wife, Paula Patton ("Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," "Idlewild" and "Precious"), are calling it quits after nine years of marriage. Thicke, 36, and Patton, 38, met when they were teenagers - long before either of them had even the first glimpse of fame - but between a music megahit, Miley twerking, film-set rumors and Emily Ratajkowski 's "Blurred Lines" video breasts, that's a lot for a marriage to stand up to. Patton has also appeared in Thicke's music videos, including "Lost Without U" and "Love After War. " She was the inspiration behind most of his music, and she appeared on the cover of his 2003 debut, "A Beautiful World.

Chris Patton appeared to be thoroughly enjoying himself in the 1989 U.S. Amateur and the crowd at Merion Golf Club loved him for it. The 300-pound self-described "country farm kid" from South Carolina impressed with his self-deprecating humor, his homespun personality, and his game. You figured that after Patton swept through six matches to win the championship and the Havemeyer Trophy that you'd be reading about him on golf pages for years to come once he completed his senior year at Clemson.

So when I heard that a Princeton University snob had written an op-ed in the school newspaper urging that female coeds need to find husbands before they graduate, I was, like, oh no she didn't . Addressing "the daughters I never had," 1977 grad Susan A. Patton wrote, "For most of you, the cornerstone of your future and happiness will be inextricably linked to...

Patton, 53, a former state prosecutor, yesterday was sentenced in Bucks County Court to serve three to 23 months in the county prison.

It was a mystifying pedestrian death - one that initially confused police investigators, triggered a seven-month grand jury probe, and left little decisive evidence behind. In the end, that evidence was not enough to convict lawyer Richard Patton of vehicular homicide in the death of his girlfriend in a Newtown Township parking lot. A Bucks County jury yesterday acquitted Patton, 52, of the most serious charges in the April 26, 2007, death of Heather Demou. Demou, 34, died of head injuries when she fell from the side of Patton's moving pickup truck after the couple had argued outside La Stalla, a restaurant in Newtown.
