Smarty rains on the Wachovia party

Talk about an event being trumped by a horse. Once again our beloved city has been hypnotized by another sports hero on the brink. Channel 10 devoted nearly a quarter of their newscast to "Smarty Jeones"

This is normally the territory of the Flyers and Eagles. But this year our neighborhood tweens have been standing on the corner coercing people to honk for ... St. Joes? I haven't seen that hysteria for Smarty, but the 500,000 attendees of the Wachovia Bike Race will barely get a mention on the local news.
