PHILADELPHIA, PA. — For many sports fans, the only time they pay attention to track and field is every four years, during the Summer Olympics.
If you live in the Philly area, like I do, that arc may be reduced to a yearly occurrence as you can't help but be influenced by the Penn Relays at historic Franklin Field.
One of the local newscasts, ABC's Channel 6 Action News, even interrupted their Philadelphia Eagles NFL draft coverage on Thursday night to report that a Villanova women's team had won an event at the historic competition.
For a city that likes to snub its nose at college sports, it was a truly remarkable event.
