At some point, I tweeted about how I only root for Peirce College, the school located on the 1400 block of Pine Street in Center City Philadelphia. (“Go Fighting Misspellings!” I wrote.) Somehow, that led to me interviewing the president of Peirce College a few weeks later.

At some point, I tweeted about how I only root for Peirce College, the school located on the 1400 block of Pine Street in Center City Philadelphia.
