The game was there to be taken and, inexplicably, Hersey Hawkins would not take it. The game was there to be grabbed by the throat and, inexplicably, Hersey Hawkins would not grab it. It was a night that cried for The Hawk and, inexplicably, he was unable to answer the cry. In recent seasons, when Charles Barkley has been unable to create Barkleymania, The Hawk has been the 76ers' next-best answer. He would take his textbook jumper, step out and launch his deadly three-point shot, drive doggedly to the basket and score inside or draw fouls.

Norm Eggen did it again! For the fourth straight year, which in this case is "since the beginning of time," Norm and his talented crew from the "Old Country Deli" won top honors, "People's Choice," at the Fourth Annual San Luis Obispo Rib Cook-Off. Ribs, barbecued ribs, are big in San Luis Obispo. They are served by the thousands every Thursday night on Higuera street when the street is blocked off between Osos and Nippomo. Local farmers bring in pickup loads of fresh produce and set up stalls along both sides of the street.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told the Daily News he did not tell anyone from CBS that he actually had three broken ribs, and not the torn rib cartilage the Eagles announced after Vick was sandwiched between two Redskins defenders Oct. 3. During yesterday's broadcast, announcer Jim Nantz said Vick gave that account of the injury during a Saturday conversation. "I never said that," Vick said following his postgame news conference. In the long run, it might not matter much - torn rib cartilage is a pretty big deal, no less signficant than broken ribs.

Add defensive end Greg Townsend to the list of injured Eagles. Townsend is nursing sore right ribs - the result, he says, of being kicked while on the ground in a scrum during last Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. And, incidentally, the cast that defensive end William Fuller will wear to protect his right thumb is smaller than the cast Andy Harmon has been wearing for the past seven games. Fuller has an unusual fracture under his right thumbnail. He is probable for the Falcons game.

New York Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano has two broken ribs, a result of a car accident several weeks ago that he did not tell the team about until Saturday. Pavano, who has not pitched in the major leagues since June 2005 because of shoulder, back, buttock and elbow injuries, is scheduled to make a rehabilitation start tomorrow for triple-A Columbus. General manager Brian Cashman said yesterday that Pavano had made three rehab starts with the rib injuries. Barry Bonds' personal trainer was on his way back to jail after being held in contempt of court for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the San Francisco slugger.

Charlie Garner's season is over. The Eagles placed the running back on injured reserve yesterday, 18 days after he suffered two broken ribs in a game against the New York Giants. Garner became the fifth Eagles player to go on IR since Dec. 1. Fullback Mike Reed was promoted from the practice squad to take Garner's spot on the roster. Reed became the seventh player added to the 53-man roster this month. Garner was hampered early this season by a severely sprained ankle suffered in the preseason.

Tim Tebow had no real shot at playing against the New England Patriots. The New York Jets' backup quarterback has two broken ribs, and coach Rex Ryan insisted Tebow still could've played, but he had no intention of putting him on the field Thursday night unless it was an emergency. Apparently, a 49-19 blowout didn't qualify. The Jets found out 2 days before the game that Tebow's sore ribs were actually fractured when results from an MRI exam and CT scan were released. Tebow was active for the game, but Ryan kept him on the sideline.

Charles H. Gray, 85, of Mount Airy, a biology teacher and owner of the Rib Crib, a barbecue spot in Germantown that became a Philadelphia landmark, died Wednesday, May 6, at Einstein Medical Center after a series of strokes. Since opening the restaurant 47 years ago, Mr. Gray had played host to such figures as former President Bill Clinton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the actors Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks, and the singer Patti LaBelle. Neither they nor the locals who lined up on the sidewalk outside the restaurant at 6333 Germantown Ave. could get enough of his sizzling-hot baby back ribs with homemade sauce - or of Mr. Gray.

SOME PEOPLE dream of sun-kissed beaches or mountains in the moonlight or other pleasant scenes. Charles Gray dreamt of a barbecue pit. You see, Charles, a longtime biology teacher in Philadelphia schools, had this vision: a barbecue restaurant so outstanding that it would become a Philly landmark and draw celebrities, politicians, and other movers and shakers to its precincts. Struggling through problems attendant to starting a new business - such as lack of money - Charles finally realized his vision.

A FORMER Philadelphia assistant medical examiner told a Common Pleas jury yesterday how 10-year-old Charlenni Ferreira suffered a wrenching death. The Feltonville girl, who died Oct. 21, 2009, had five fractured ribs, most of those injured within a month of her death, testified Marlon Osbourne, who had conducted Charlenni's autopsy when he worked in Philadelphia. Two of those ribs were broken about two to four weeks before her death, and then rebroken about a week before she died, while they were still healing, Osbourne testified at the murder trial of Margarita Garabito, 48, Charlenni's stepmother.

Malik Muldrow has bought some extra time in the pocket. He plans to make the most of it. Muldrow, a senior quarterback at Lindenwold, has been dodging defenders on his way to every major school record in passing during a four-year career. But this time was different. This time, Muldrow didn't avoid a sack and find an open receiver down the field. This time, Muldrow escaped the apparent end of his career to return to the Lions in near-miraculous fashion and set his sights on a record set by the Colonial Conference's most famous former quarterback.

LULA MAE FLOWERS might have stood just 5 feet tall, but you didn't want to get her riled up. One way to really bring out Lula Mae's combative nature was to do or say anything against her family. "We must be very clear that if you tried to harm her family - especially her boys - this 5-foot lady would single-handedly make you regret that decision," her family said in a tribute. Other than that, Lula Mae was a loving and nurturing woman, a cook whose pigs feet and barbecue ribs were family legends, and a shopper whose devotion to finding a bargain kept storekeepers on their toes all over the city.

BEING A PRESSER in a dry-cleaning store doesn't sound like a job many people would covet - the long hours, the pressure, the steam, the heat. Elizabeth Young loved it. She did piece work for Eagle Cleaners for 10 years and Bell Cleaners for 33 years. Breaking her ankle in a misstep at Bell at about the age of 65 didn't discourage her. After healing, she was right back at work. "I had to encourage her to retire," said her grandson, Robert McCray, which meant he had to practically drag her away.

A sore rib kept centerfielder Ben Revere out of the starting lineup for the first time this season, when the Phillies played the Miami Marlins on Friday night at Citizens Bank Park. Revere, who said he hurt the rib making one of two diving catches Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers, was replaced by Tony Gwynn Jr. "I got a little sore rib right now, but it is really nothing serious," Revere said before the game. "I want to take a precaution, but I will be fine. " Revere pinch-hit in the seventh inning and grounded out to short.

Hooray, it's the holidays! And you'll find no "Bah humbug!" here. We're caught up in the festivities of the season. If we're lucky there'll be just enough snow to dress Bucks County in winter white. The little river towns along the Delaware look downright Dickensian - big stars and bells strung with twinkling lights hang from every lamppost, people hurry through their errands, while others stroll and peruse shop windows decked out with bling. There are even carolers on street corners singing the old favorites.

After Sean Couturier missed a gaping net in the first period Tuesday night, linemate Matt Read couldn't help teasing him when they went to the bench. By the time the Flyers returned to the ice for the second period, Read turned his needling to encouragement. " 'Coots', you're due," Read told him. "You're going to get one tonight. " Read couldn't have predicted the one Couturier got: a 90-degree flip from the goal line off Ottawa goalie Rob Lehner. It ended a career-long, 25-game goal-less streak for Couturier.

Labor Day weekend marks the last of our Friday night summer suppers for friends and family at Canal House, our cookbook publishing studio along the Delaware and Raritan Canal in Lambertville, N.J. These suppers have become a tradition, thanks in part to Fireworks Friday, the spectacle launched from a barge anchored in the Delaware River south of the green iron New Hope-Lambertville bridge. The display is equal to any you'll see on a Fourth of July. We're already licking our chops for this year's finale.
