After waiting for roughly 40 years, the NFL great finally made the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.
Dave Robinson’s Saturday went from anxious to deeply depressing to exhilarating, all within a matter of moments. Hunkered down in his hotel room in New Orleans, the former Moorestown football standout and all-time great NFL linebacker watched as the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee announced the names for the 2013 class. Hall of Fame classes are usually limited to four or five players, Robinson said, so when they got to number five and he hadn’t heard his name, he figured he’d been passed over again. (He was up for induction the first time around in 1989, but missed the cut.) “I said, ‘Well that’s it. You’ve had it,’” he recalled. And then he heard his name—second-to-last ahead of defensive tackle Warren Sapp—and, “All of a …

A local fan starts a petition to bring back retro jerseys for the Birds.
Do you miss them? Did you love the Philadelphia Eagles so much more when they were in a kelly green jersey? Many fans have come to dislike the new "midnight green," black/charcoal and white design. Perhaps it is the dismal last season, or maybe it just is a longing for yesteryear, but some fans have decided to do something about it. According to an article on philly.com, "Cranekicker," a local twitter personality, has started a petition to bring back the kelly green uniforms of the past. The Eagles had donned the kelly green (with silver eagles' wings on the helmet) uniforms from 1973 to 1995, according to the Eagles year-by-year history. Cranekicker has written a petition to Eagles' owner Jeffrey Laurie to ask for the official team …

The Cinnaminson lacrosse program, established in 2009, is more popular than ever, thanks to the hard work and dedication of some Cinnaminson parents.
In 2009, three Cinnaminson moms - Terri Caruso, Brenda McLaverty and Deb Wojcik decided to get the lacrosse ball rolling, literally, and formed Cinnaminson's Lacrosse Program, CLAX. Teams were organized for both boys and girls in grades 3 through 8. Their main goal was to introduce the sport to Cinnaminson’s young athletes and families. Wojcik was a lacrosse player and her children played in high school and college; McLaverty’s sons were both interested in playing and convinced their mom that Cinnaminson needed a lacrosse program. Caruso took part because of her son John's interest in lacrosse. "He had been playing in Mount Laurel since 5th grade, because there was no team here in Cinnaminson," Caruso said. "Although he has never played…
