My Kansas City Star duties have me in Philadelphia this weekend for the Olympic gymnastics trials at the Wachovia Center. The last time I was in this building was for the 2000 Final Four. That's when UConn coach Geno Auriemma made a wisecrack remark about the neighboring cheesesteak places called Geno's and Pat's, joking that one was all shiny and cool-looking and the other old and dilapidated.
