Naked City : ArticleRunning Numbers
100 Probable percentage of, oh, let's call it "Irish," in WMMR's resident deadhead Pierre Robert when the Grateful Dead played the Spectrum on St. Patrick's Day 1992. And by "Irish," I mean something green. (Hint: not green beer and not shamrocks.)
2 Number of rehearsals per week required of women on the Eagles' cheerleading squad, which will hold open-call auditions March 18 in the East Club Lounge at Lincoln Financial Field. Please, please, try out. For if there is no one to lead, there will be no cheers. (And no one to show close-ups of before commercials.)
90-8 Halftime score of the Sixers' blowout of the Cincinnati Royals March 19, 1971.
4 Number of second-round upsets, out of four games, in this year's Atlantic 10 basketball tournamenta first in conference history.
0 Number of full performances by The Roots shown in Dave Chapelle's Block Party. But Philly still got reps from Jill Scott and ?uestlove, who, in between drumming for every act, offered one of the more memorable quotes: "Our audiences don't look like us." I wouldn't be so sure, 'love. I've been mistaken for you plenty.
