Post by Jason Plotkin Some call it fate. Others call it destiny. Luck, even. Me? I’ll go with a great $20 I never spent. It started at the media gate. Penn State reporter Frank Bodani and I were in Philadelphia to cover the game between PSU and Temple last Saturday. We had walked almost the […]
Post by Jason Plotkin People around me were angry. What should have been a routine groundball, ended in screaming during the Susquehanna League baseball playoff game between Conrads and East Prospect on Saturday in East Prospect. Spectators around me claimed that the first baseman for Conrads did not have his foot on the bag for […]
Video: Excited local fans watch the Women’s World Cup soccer final An international game, that isn’t American football, can be hard to illustrate with local fans in York County.

Memories: Half asleep at graduation from Gettysburg College after covering a late night fatal in Bonneauville, the time my news editor went home, sat down on the couch and shot himself in the head (a week after I left) the Gettysburg Times. The majestic hotel pictured here completely in flames after an arsonist lit it in three places at once in the basement while I still had no clue how to cover a fire. The Gettysburg Times building was across the street at the time.
