The late Sabol, a Moorestown resident, co-founded NFL Films and is credited for changing how fans watch and understand football.
New Jersey is one step closer to memorializing a Moorestown man who changed how America watches football. The state Senate approved a resolution naming Oct. 2 as Steve Sabol Day. Sabol is the late president and co-founder of NFL Films, based in Mount Laurel. Sabol died in September 2012 after an 18-month battle with brain cancer. Sabol’s NFL Films captured football action on and off the field as no other. Sabol helped humanize football, and its players, to the nation. While his footage used techniques—slow motion, extreme close-ups—that viewers previously didn’t see, Sabol’s storytelling was at the heart of his clips.

Runners are being encouraged to bring as little as possible with them this year.
Following the backpack bombings at the Boston Marathon two weeks ago, runners in this year's Broad Street Run in Philadelphia won't be able to tote their gear in a backpack, race organizers announced in a mass email to participants Monday. Taking a page from the Transportation Safety Administration's playbook, race organizers are mandating runners use clear plastic drawstring bags, which will be handed out at the expo Friday and Saturday, to stow their gear this year. “You are strongly encouraged to bring as little as possible with you to the start of the race,” race organizers said in the email to runners. “All items brought into the start area are subject to search and/or confiscation.” Race organizers only indicated backpacks would be …

Philadelphia's runners are showing support for Boston with their socks.
As the nation recovers from aftershocks of the Boston Marathon bombings, people are finding ways to support the city that lost so much. From Facebook posts to charitable donations, Bostonians-at-heart are rallying to show support for Beantown. In the City of Brotherly Love, one popular way to show the love is apparently through one's socks. According to a recent Philly Mag blog post, many area sporting good stores are stocking up on red socks. Why? Because runners converging on Philadelphia are preparing to show they care. Those participating in the Broad Street Run, slated for Sunday, May 5, are planning to wear red running socks to show love for Boston, whose major-league baseball team is the Red Sox. Philly may be home to the most …

The New Jersey State Senate president said the national attention being paid to Rutgers over the scandal is an embarrassment.
New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney said the national attention being paid to Rutgers University over the behavior of basketball coach Mike Rice has given the school a black eye. The state senator, whose office is located in West Deptford, appeared on the ESPN program Outside The Lines Wednesday afternoon to discuss the dismissal of the coach. Sweeney was frank in expressing his disappointment that Rice was not terminated in December 2012, when the tapes depicting the coach's apparently abusive practices surfaced. "Once you have something like that presented to you, there's no gray [area]," Sweeney said. "You don't have to do much of anything except take action to resolve the problem." Sweeney said it was "troubling" that the …
A video of Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice surfaced, showing Rice yelling abusive and profane language and shoving and kicking players. The coach came under national scrutiny.
After less than a day of deflecting a storm of bad press surrounding head basketball coach Mike Rice's coaching methods, Rutgers University Athletic Director Tim Pernetti has confirmed that Rice has been fired. "I am responsible for the decision to attempt a rehabilitation of Coach Rice," Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti said in a statement. "Dismissal and corrective action were debated in December and I thought it was in the best interest of everyone to rehabilitate, but I was wrong. Moving forward, I will work to regain the trust of the Rutgers community." Rice, 44, who has coached the Scarlet Knights since 2010, was captured on tape verbally and physically abusing players. He spat curse words and insults at them, plus kicked and …
