Heroes in Philadelphia

I just watched the season finale of Heroes — ya gotta love DVR — and I was just thinking, if the final battle happened in Philly, where would you do it? Love Park has irony written all over it. The Art Museum steps is gorgeous, even classically cool, but it’s gotten typecast from Rocky. I used to run at Belmont plateau and I can tell you it has an awesome view of the city. Good vs. evil duking it out with the glittering skyline in the background….

In the middle of 30th Street Station would be cool if you didn’t have to worry about those pesky witnesses.

Anyway.

    Did you run x-country at a Phila area high school?
    I recall running once at Belmont, during my brief time on the Central x-country team-great view.

    Yup. Archbishop Ryan, class of ’87. My clearest memory is standing at the starting line in the cold wind and misty rain, and every runner — from every team — yelling at the coach to fire the gun already, because he had a jacket on and we didn’t.
