The Daily Numbers - March 26

The Daily Numbers: 0 goals scored by the Union last night in their debut in Seattle. They were blanked, 2-0.
522 charges filed against Aston District Judge David Murphy. He’s expected to be arraigned on Monday.
0 arrests made so far in the brutal stabbing death of an Upper Chichester mother in her home.
200 registrations, how many kids need to be registered for next year at St. Joseph’s School in Collingdale to keep the doors open.
1 guilty verdict and 1 not guilty for Susan Finkelstein, the woman accused of offering sex for World Series tickets. She was acquitted on the more serious charge of prostitution, convicted on the minor attempted prostitution charge.
1 year maximum sentence, though it’s much more likely she will get probation. Finkelstein also is appealing.
28 cell phones stolen and then sold by a Common Pleas Court clerk in Philadelphia. She pleaded guilty.
1 woman shot when she tried to break into a home in the city’s Rhawnhurst section. She picked the wrong house. A deputy fire chief was asleep inside.
12 percent property tax hike now on the board in Philly, as an alternative to increase in the tax fee.
107 million dollars, how much the trash fee would raise for the city each year.
2 racial incidents now being tied to a teen who took to the PA at a South Jersey Walmart store and asked all black people to leave the store. He’s now believed to have done something similar just after Christmas.
100 students in Haddonfield, N.J., who may have had their information hacked on the district’s computers. Officials say it was part of a plot by a small group of kids to change grades.
8 men being sought in a wild series of home invasions that started in Yeadon and ended in a shootout in West Philadelphia.
2 powerful Democrats lining up behind state Sen. Anthony Williams’ bid for governor. He’s being backed by Mayor Michael Nutter and state Rep.
Dwight Evans.
2 goal lead in the third period coughed up by the Flyers, who wound up losing in OT.
0 for 16 for the orange and black on the power play in the last 4 games.
Not good.
6 losses in their last 7 games for the Flyers, who are clinging to a playoff spot by a thread.
2 runs surrendered by Phils’ starter Kyle Kendrick as he continues his push for the 5th starter’s job. Jamie Moyer will pitch tonight.
8-7 win for the Phils over Brett Myers and the Astros yesterday. Myers left the game with a groin strain after covering first on a ground ball.
Sounds familiar.
36,000 people who showed up in a driving rain to see the Union make their debut in Seattle. Lots of them were from this region.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.The Eagles, including Andy Reid, seemed to have done an about-face on the question of Donovan McNabb. Now they need to pull the trigger.
Everyone knows they can’t simply come back with the same old song next year. Reid isn’t going anywhere. McNabb likely is.
*
I Don’t Get It: Somebody know who killed Dana Felts in her Upper Chi home. It’s time for them to come forward with what they know.
*
Today’s Upper: Kudos to the Union. A lot of people never thought they would ever see them take the field. They did just that last night in Seattle. In June they will open their new stadium in Chester. Now they just need to score a goal.

Quote Box: “It’s such a shame. This stuff shouldn’t be happening.”
- Brian Bernard, neighbor of Dana Felts, the mom who was fatally stabbed in her Upper Chichester home.

It was kinda fun watching some of the Union's soccer game. I'm not a fan of the team name and logo but I like the jersey.
I think I'd look real cool in one of their shirts.
You'd think some store in Chester would sell them. Besides online, I saw that Dick's had some hats and shirts when I was in the Christiana store last week.
When I wear my Barcelona team shirt that I purchased during a visit to Spain I always get comments from folks.
Let's see how long it takes for folks to comment on my Philadelphia Union gear.
