Fitness and Wings

News Item: Pat Croce Named Commissioner of Wing Bowl

Sort of strange, I'd say, that WIP would name Croce, the acclaimed fitness guru and former president of the 76ers, to preside over its annual bacchanal of gluttony. (I covered the event last year.)

Such a job would seem to go against everything Croce stands for, as a health-and-fitness maven. And even more strangely, the previous commissioner of the event was the famously overweight former baseball umpire Eric Gregg, who died of a stroke earlier this year. So you can expect the organizers to remember Gregg in a dignified manner, before the contestants begin the wing-eating contest.
