Are you scratching your head as to what to do for Mom on Mother's Day this coming Sunday? Tired to doing the same old dinner thing year in and year out? Well fear not, I have just the solution. How about taking Mom to a Phillies game?

The stars are aligned as the Phillies will play at home against the Braves this Sunday night at 8:00 P.M. Yeah I know it's a Sunday night game and you'll get home late, but it would be a wonderful gift for Mom. Take her out for a quick bite to eat at Talk of the Town across the street for a cheesesteak, then head on over to the game.

You can find Phillies tickets for the (May 8th) Mother's Day game on stubhub or even ebay. Plenty of tickets are available. Just search "phillies braves may 8." And, while you're at it, buy Mom some Phillies gear at Modell's or the official Phillies.com fan shop.

Rashard Mendenhall is the latest NFL player to make a fool of himself on Twitter after tweeting about Bin Laden and 9/11 today. First, Mendenhall opined on Twitter about how he finds it disturbing so many people celebrated Osama Bin Laden's death and why there's so much hate for him.

Really? You wonder why there's so much hate for a mass murderer who killed thousands of people? If you even have to ask this, then you're clearly not operating with a full deck.

As if that wasn't a dumb enough statement, this rocket scientist fired off a tweet about how he has a hard time believing a plane could bring down a skyscraper demolition style. Thus, he exposed himself as a 9/11 truther.

Mendenhall has outdone the likes of Santonio Holmes (told a fan to kill himself) and Adrian Peterson (compared the NFL to slavery) with his dumbass tweets. Holmes' tweet was pretty bad because he had the cajones to tell a fan to kill himself on Twitter. But, Adrian Peterson topped Holmes by having the temerity to liken millionaire athletes to slaves. However, Mendenhall's blows both of these idiotic statements out of the water for obvious reasons. Mendenhall should also realize how intertwined sports are with patriotism. That alone should be enough of a deterrent to refrain of such assery. 

He tried to cover his ass by deleting the comments on his Twitter page, but they are already all over the internet. He must be really foolish if he thinks they'll just go away.

Once again another blockhead proves that some professional athletes should keep their opinions to themselves.

I will start this off by disclosing that I am by no means a runner. Never have been,Broad Street Run 2011. Photo courtesy of Facebook. perhaps never will be. I have only run in one competitive race in my life, and I was anything but competitive.

However, yesterday I embarked on a ten mile journey of sweat, determination, and honor that truly left an immediate imprint. It may have been my legs and lungs that were put to the test, but it is my heart that emerged victorious. No measurement of time, training, or endurance could equate to the pride I felt with each passing stride.

From my perspective, the sights and sounds of the 32nd Annual Broad Street Run  in Philadelphia were those of great honor and overwhelming delight. It was a comfortable and gorgeous Sunday morning, just shy of sixty degrees at race time. I had trained and set goals, but in my mind I knew I needed to relish the experience of the race. I just didn’t know to what extent the experience itself could carry a somewhat novice runner such as me.

I now truly believe the character and popularity of the Broad Street Run stem from its format and layout. A point-to-point race, it is the largest 10-miler in the United States. Most runners begin the race by taking the SEPTA subway from Pattison Avenue in South Philly to the starting line near the Olney Transportation Center. From there, it is a ten mile haul to the finish line, and the only realistic option is to get there on your own power. There is no loop to the finish; that is, you never return to the starting line. The course itself is almost entirely flat, making it very appealing to the runner. But it is the added incentive of those standing on the course’s edges, cheering and waving and motivating each runner that made this race feel special.

A day later, I already cherish the memory of how I felt when I heard the first echoes of encouragement stream from the cement sidelines. People mightily shouted and applauded as the runners passed. I remember feeling grateful that those great people of our city- you know, the one with the constantly questioned, “so-called brotherly love”- were displaying such great love and support. It made me proud to be a product of the Greater Philadelphia area.

There were a few key moments that stick out in my mind. First, I vividly remember one woman yell out after the first mile, “Only nine miles to go! Keep it up!” I laughed and appreciated the sentiment, a feeling of positive energy that would seemingly carry over for much of my race. I also remember the feeling as the sidewalk bands played the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Woman” and “Satisfaction," the latter coming as I swooped my way around City Hall and realized that more of the race was now behind me. But perhaps the pinnacle was the echoing of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger," which I fuzzily believe occurred somewhere around mile seven. It was truly a Rocky-like moment that made me want to finish the race by scaling the steps of the Art Museum (which sadly is too far away and would require far too much stamina).

Essentially though, the playing of the bands and the cheer of the patrons were just the icing on the cake. Seeing Governor Rendell cheering on the runners and giving high-fives and words of encouragement confirmed just how much this race means to the city of Philadelphia.

Finishing the 2011 Broad Street Run was a great personal accomplishment and it means a great deal to me. I feel blessed, honored, and privileged to have participated in such an event. Yet, if there is one thing that leaves an indelible mark from this single experience, it is this feeling of brotherly love and support, great pride and unity.

Clearly, the Broad Street Run means as much to this great city as it does to its participants.

President Obama's birth certificate (long form version) was released today, thus proving that he's an American citizen and putting to rest any conspiracy theories. He addressed the press and said "We do not have time for this silliness." I couldn't have said it better myself.

Yet, the birthers and tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorists are still not satisfied. Barry Soetoro, (his code name according to birthers) they allege still has plenty of questions to answer.

In fact, the Barry Soetoro web site alleges that Obama's birth certificate is a forged document. The writer of the blog post "Admin" alleges that "finally got his wish today when Obama had some really good forger make up a fake long form “real” birth certificate." Wow. How eloquent. Gee I wonder if you think the Israelis and President Bush launched missles into the Twin Towers as well?

President Obama is in a catch 22 - damned if he does and damned if he doesn't if you will. If he continues to ignore the birthers and media whores like Donald Trump, then he's hiding something. But, if he addresses the hoards of conspiracy theorists, then he's obviously forging it to shut them up.

Then there's the majority of us who aren't lunatics with this obsession. We say President Barack Obama and the goons say "Barry Soetoro." 

Kudos to President Obama for taking the high road and not engaging the troglodytes any further. He is tired of the "silliness" brought about by this, but these silly people will insist on carrying on with their charade.

It's time to relax for a few days Philly. Your Philadelphia Flyers have defeated the Buffalo Sabres in game seven tonight by a 5-2 score. The Flyers survived a brutal series in which they were shut out by Ryan Miller twice. And, they won a series despite starting three separate goalies during a playoff series, becoming the first team to ever complete the feat.

More surprisingly it wasn't the nail-biting game we've come to expect from the orange and black. They led the game the entire way and didn't look back from their 1-0 lead in the first period.

Brian Boucher stopped 25 shots and the Philadelphia Flyers advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 5-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres in Game 7 of their first-round series on Tuesday night.

It remains to be seen who the Flyers will face in round 2.
