Competition for Specter-Sestak

8:45 a.m.: And now for a sports commentary. OK, so the NHL bigwigs probably weren't locked into the Specter-Sestak primary. But about the last thing we needed tonight was a Flyers playoff game.

Yet that's exactly what we got. Rain won't have any effect on Flyers fans. I hope they all hit the polls before they head for South Philly. The Flyers game is scheduled to start about 55 minutes before the polls close.

And that's not all. The South Philly sports complex will be jumping. Across the street at Citizens Bank Park, Roy Halladay will be taking the mound for the Phils as they go for their fifth straight win. Last night they crushed the hapless Pirates, 12-2. Of course, the Phils might get rained out. But this is only a two-game series, so they likely will sit around for awhile trying to get it in.

And if all that was not enough, the Sixers will make a little news tonight. No, they're still not ready to name their new coach. Tonight is the NBA Draft Lottery. The Sixers have the No. 6 spot in the lottery. The odds of the Sixers winding up with the No. 1 pick weigh in at a dismal 6 percent. Getting into the top three? About 21 percent. Getting exactly where they are sitting, with the No. 6 or 7 selection? 70 percent.

Maybe Specter should head to the Phils game again tonight. He was there last night and the Phils rolled to a huge win.

So what do you think is the biggest contest of the night, Flyers-Canadiens or Specter-Sestak?
