The legend, Jim Brown, stopped by Syracuse for homecoming to talk Orange athletics.

Jim also stopped by Cleveland to see his beloved Browns. A statue of the NFL Hall of Famer (also US Lacrosse Hall of Fame, class of 1983) is being unveiled today.

The long-awaited, eight-foot bronze work by local artist David Deming is the first statue of a Cleveland Browns player in Cleveland. It has been quietly in the works for months in a Lakewood studio and foundry. The Browns commissioned the statue in February, and it is expected to be the first of several, though none other has been announced.

Another great Chris Hogan lacrosse article. This one is especially awesome since it hits the rare Hopkins, Rutgers, & Patriots trifecta.

Legendary international lacrosse player and N.C. State Wolfpack four-time All-American, Stan Cockerton, entered the N.C. State Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday.

What’s Up, Philly?

Is Philly a 24-hour city?

At the time, five U.S. cities — New York, Boston, D.C., San Francisco and Chicago — were considered the vanguard, while Philly was relegated to the frumpy nine-to-five pile. And our city remains there in the eyes of most people who care about this topic — despite the renaissance of Center City over the past 20 years.

However, consider this: Philly is one of just three American cities to offer 24-hour subway service. (We even beat London to that marker.) Research shows that Philadelphia has twice as many 24-hour drugstores as Boston or San Francisco. And Center City is a near-ideal mix of residential, retail and office buildings.
