Vince Papale, St. Joseph’s University Hall of Fame Inductee

Interesting to see who St Joseph’s University is inducting into its Athletics Hall of Fame tomorrow, October 16: The roster includes Vince Papale (class of 1968), whose story was told in the movie, Invincible. While the move tells the story of his improbable football career with the Philadelphia Eagles, the story of Mr. Papale’s cross-country and track achievements at St. Joseph’s University (where my son now attends) in Philadelphia is less well known. Among the many sources that fill in some of these blanks, one of the more interesting I have now seen is at Chasing the Frog.

Congratulations are due as well to the other notable inductees to Saint Joseph’s University’s 9th Athletics Hall of Fame Celebration:

John Butz ’66, Baseball
Bill Campbell, Sportscaster
Tony Costner ’84, Men’s Basketball
Renee Hykel ’01, Women’s Rowing
Christina Kowalski ’00, Softball
Michael McDermott ’97, Golf
Susan Moran ’02, Women’s Basketball
Tom Pippet ’73, Men’s Soccer

Welcome to Netting It Out, a new blog by Bob Eastman. The goal of this blog will be to offer up and comment on the best of the ideas and new insights circulating in the blogosphere, the social and traditional media, and anywhere else that an intriguing, fresh (or freshly stated) idea or interesting insight can be found.Look for your news elsewhere – Netting It Out holds no ambitions to being a news portal. Rather, Netting It Out will be on the look-out for the story-behind-the-story, the new idea, the article, the trend, the new piece of research, resource or link that compels you to want to think, and to read more.

Netting It Out will not ask a lot of time from you – we will not be assaulting, beating, and trampling the proverbial “dead horse”. We will however try to give you a nugget of an idea or insight that we hope might just make you stop somewhere in your day, and think just a little bit.

Many of the ideas and models discussed here will come from the the value chain, supply chain, business, and technology realms, that permeate so much of life today and where there are so many interesting emerging innovations and ideas. Our primary mission however will be to be interesting and compelling wherever the idea or construct or model or story comes from.

Netting It Out hopes that you find the content compelling, and that you feel invited to contribute and discuss. Netting It Out will not, of course, be perfect, or always right, and for that I will apologize in advance, and beg your assistance in setting Netting It Out and the record straight. Game on.
