In case you were wondering just how long it had been since the Flyers thrilled their fans the way they did Tuesday night, it was 19 years. The Flyers had not won a seven-game series on the road since beating the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1, in Pittsburgh on April 29, 1989. They had never won a seven-game series in overtime. Last night, Danica Patrick visited the Late Show With David Letterman . When she walked on stage at the taping it was to the tune of "Used to Be My Girl," a reference to the fact that the IRL driver used to be with Rahal Letterman Racing.

TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team has played once at home this season. The unbeaten Owls trailed in that one for a little over 38 1/2 minutes. In their three on the road, they've been behind for a total of just under 7. Nobody ever proclaimed this stuff has to make perfect sense. "I love being on the road, I don't know why," senior linebacker Tyler Matakevich said. "Don't get me wrong. Playing in the Linc is great, but going to another team's stadium and having an opportunity to show them how good of a team we are . . . Of course, to just hop on the bus and go right down to the hotel to relax and get ready for the next day works, too. " Whatever.

A squabble over a road in Schuylkill Township has all the nasty ingredients of a suburban tale gone sour: anxious township officials, quarreling neighbors and lawyers talking about lawsuits. Alvin and Barbara Clemens moved to Schuylkill Township in the late 1960s. They were like many other young couples - interested in raising a family away from the daunting problems of the city, living life their own way, at their own pace. The only thing not average about the Clemenses was the fact that, relatively speaking, they were very secure financially.

Just how looong have you been in your car the past week? Was last Wednesday's, or Monday's, or yesterday's commute twice as long as normal? Join the crowd. Three times? Poor you. What a mess these dinky little snows have been. Saturday's 12-inch dump was one thing. People were smart and didn't go out. The snowplow crews did their work. Crisis averted. But come Monday, when all we got was a dusting, it seemed as if the whole region seized up, just like the week before.

Collecting and disseminating information about business travel has become one of the growth industries of the late 1980s. That's not surprising, since spending on all travel and entertainment by American companies and individuals is climbing steadily. It now tops an estimated $95 billion a year, according to American Express Co.'s 1988-89 Survey of Business Travel Management. But given all the unhappy news about the traveling life, from overcrowded airplanes to bland hotels and meals, there are some genuine surprises in a recent study of business travel, put together by Hyatt Hotels Corp.

Bishop Eustace has had an interesting week of practice as it prepares for the Tournament of Champions. The Crusaders have been without three of their top players - center Jill Norton, guard Anne Shovlin and forward Lisa Busciacco - who are on their senior trip at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The players are so dedicated that they will return early from their trip to play in the Tournament of Champions. Coach Annette Reiter said they are flying home a day early and are expected to land at 11 a.m. tomorrow.

Haddon Heights boys' basketball coach Butch McLean always has played an up-tempo game, and doesn't plan to change things this year. That might be hard to believe after Heights scored one of the wackiest wins possible to open the high school basketball season Friday. The Garnets beat Haddon Township, 35-34, in a Colonial Conference game of extremes. Heights stormed to an 11-0 lead after just 50 seconds. In the third quarter, the Garnets were outscored by 12-0; they took just six shots and committed six turnovers.

The Bristol girls' basketball team lost a game last week, but it remained in the battle for first place in the Bicentennial Athletic League. The Warriors fell to host Gwynedd-Mercy Academy, 46-32, Wednesday. The Mustangs stand alone atop the league at 5-0, 10-2 overall. "We got our shots, maybe not as many as we normally do, but they have good defense," Warriors coach Jack Wichser said. "We got 51 shots. The problem was we only made 13 field goals. The Warriors' usually reliable outside shooters, junior Kelli Brandt and senior Cindy Faight, combined to hit only 2 of 23 shots.

WASHINGTON - Going into this week, the Saint Joseph's Hawks had won true road games this season in New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Rhode Island. The road warriors added another geographical note on their résumé Wednesday night, building an 11-point, first-half lead and cruising to an 84-66 win in the nation's capital against George Washington in an Atlantic 10 Conference contest between NCAA hopefuls. The score wasn't even that close, as the Hawks (20-4, 9-2 A-10) led by 23 points with 3:21 left on a night they shot 64 percent in the second half, 57 percent overall, and made only five turnovers.

Meriwether Falk, 32, of Portland, Ore., lived in Istanbul, Turkey, in summer 2012 and now has moved there to teach writing and language arts at a private high school. But during that summer, she learned an invaluable lesson about women traveling solo. She had been staying in what she called a "cheap hotel in Izmir" when, she says, "I was awakened by a phone call in the middle of the night, some man saying, 'Sexy, let me in.' " She hung up, but the next thing she knew, she heard a key turning in the door.

The message was familiar, but the turf was different. And to hear Gov. Wolf tell it, that's because the legislature's Republican majority - which has so far rejected many of Wolf's budget priorities - are divorced from life outside the Capitol. "I want to be where reality actually is," he said during an afternoon news conference in front of Downingtown Middle School. "We have a choice to make. That's what my budget is about, and I came here because I think I can make that statement more clearly in front of real people than I can in Harrisburg.

A FULL 30 YEARS after "Thunderdome," George Miller returns with a new "Mad Max" and shames any recent movie that claimed to be either fast or furious. "Mad Max: Fury Road" crushes most recent action films under its monster truck wheels, and reminds us what eyeball-scorching marvels his movies were when first we saw them in 1979 and '80. First there was "Mad Max" and its leather-and-mohawk punk energy, which, even in the form of dubbed VHS, made all other biker movies look like commercials for Can-Am trikes.

If the 76ers had their druthers, they certainly would prefer playing the remaining six of their final seven regular-season games at home. But, as they prepared Sunday for a Monday game against the Orlando Magic, the reality for the Sixers is that six of their final regular-season games are on the road. The Sixers (31-28) have backed themselves into a corner mostly because of their shoddy play at home. After dropping a 95-89 decision to the Nets at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, the Sixers, who began the season by winning 12 of their first 14 home games, have lost 11 of their last 18 games at home.

PITTSBURGH - It ended with Peter Laviolette and Pittsburgh Penguins assistant coach Tony Granato face-to-face, standing on top of the boards, with the Flyers coach holding a broken stick he had just smashed on the glass partition separating the teams. On the ice in front of them, Wayne Simmonds was tangling with the Pens' Deryk Engelland despite wearing a visor over a black eye swollen to the size of a grapefruit. Twenty feet away, Pavel Kubina was chucking knuckles with Matt Niskanen.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Back on the road in the playoffs, the Texas Rangers won again. Colby Lewis outpitched All-Star David Price, Mike Napoli hit a go-ahead, two-run homer and the defending AL champions survived a shaky night from the bullpen to hold off the Tampa Bay Rays last night, 4-3, in Game 3 of their American League Division Series. The Rangers' fourth straight ALDS road win matches the third-longest streak in major league history and gives Texas a 2-1 lead heading into Game 4 today.

TAMPA, Fla. - In 2006, a Villanova team that ended up in the Final Eight came to South Florida and won by three points, in the first-ever meeting. Two years ago a Wildcats squad that would get to the Final Four returned to the Sun Dome and was up two with a little more than a minute to go before putting it away at the foul line. This time, the Wildcats managed to make things a little easier on themselves. If you ignore the fact that they were ahead by three with 10 1/2 minutes remaining.
