Good morning, Philadelphia. Today we're taking a look back on Chris Christie's Jersey legacy and a look towards this weekend's Women's March. But before we do, check the weather: forecasts show the Philly region getting a little snowfall this evening.
Yesterday Sixers fans gathered at the Wells Fargo Center for a Martin Luther King Day matinee against the Toronto Raptors. The Sixers came out on top, largely thanks to star center Joel Embiid's dominance in the post; he had a 34 point game.
But the win wasn't without struggle: There were two altercations, the final one leading to Sixers point guard Ben Simmons and Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry both being ejected with seconds left in the game.
It was the second straight game that Simmons got into an altercation with a player originally from North Philly. After yesterday's game he said, "So maybe it's a Philly thing."
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, thousands pledged their time to community service yesterday, including groups that filled Girard College to volunteer their time.
And over at West Philadelphia's Shepard Recreation Center, dozens joined a workshop to learn the processes for getting a criminal record expunged or sealed. Now participants hope to reverse their fortunes and get a second chance with a clean record.
He may be leaving today, but Christie had one last move to make: he sweetened the pension of former Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd, a key political ally, on his way out.
