THE CARDINALS looked a bit sluggish and self-satisfied in their 23-20 victory over Minnesota on Dec. 10, but having last weekend off ought to have restored their fire. They have won seven in a row, and they've also won their last four road games. They've scored more points in road games (222) than any other team in the league. The Eagles won at New England a couple of weeks ago, and if you can do that, theoretically you can do anything, but they just might need a couple of special-teams touchdowns and a pick-six, as they had against the Pats, to stay close to the Cards.

John Carpenter Bowen Sr., 87, of Huntingdon Valley, a retired chemical engineer, died Tuesday, April 14, in the medical center at Rydal Park, a senior community, of complications from an earlier surgery. Born in Bristol, he was the son of Charles and Beatrice Bowen. The family moved to Moorestown, where Mr. Bowen became active in the Boy Scouts. He achieved the rank of Life Scout and was elected to the Order of the Arrow Brotherhood by members of his troop, his family said in a statement.

THE PICK This will be the Eagles' biggest win of the season, if they can pull it off, and I think they can. Seattle, after scuffling a little there for a while, is healthier now, and back to being really, really good. But the Seahawks are 3-3 on the road, 2-2 outside their time zone. And as good as Marshawn Lynch is, the run is what the Eagles' defense does best. Even without DeMeco Ryans, they would much rather you run at them than go deep against Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams all day. I'll be surprised if Seattle churns out a whole bunch of points.

WHEN ALMETA Scott Bowen cooked, she always included what she believed to be the most important ingredient: love. That undoubtedly was why the meals that emanated from her kitchen always tasted so good. She put a dollop of love in every dish, because Almeta not only loved to cook, she loved the people who sat down at her table, her extended family, friends and neighbors. They got a spiritual jolt with every course. The fact that she lived to 104 was a gift from God, she felt.

LIKE MANY basketball fans his age, 76ers rookie K.J. McDaniels grew up watching the San Antonio Spurs flirt with dominance in the NBA year in and year out. The 21-year-old admired the obvious stars, such as David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. He probably focused a little less on the team's defensive stopper and surely never paid much attention to the wild-eyed, hyper assistant coach. But Bruce Bowen and Brett Brown probably will figure prominently in the career of Daniels, whom the Sixers selected in June with the 32nd overall pick.

The stunning move by a commencement speaker at Haverford College on Sunday to use the celebratory occasion to lambaste students who had protested against another speaker drew a standing ovation from some but also sharp criticism. William G. Bowen, former president of Princeton, called the protesters' approach both "immature" and "arrogant," and the subsequent withdrawal as a speaker of Robert J. Birgeneau, former chancellor of the University of California Berkeley, a "defeat" for the Quaker college and its ideals.

In a surprising move, a commencement speaker at Haverford College on Sunday used the celebratory occasion to deliver a sharp rebuke to students who had mounted a campaign against another speaker who had been scheduled to appear but withdrew amid the controversy. William G. Bowen, former president of Princeton and a nationally respected higher education leader, called the student protestors' approach both "immature" and "arrogant" and the subsequent withdrawal of Robert J. Birgeneau, former chancellor of the University of California Berkeley, a "defeat" for the Quaker college and its ideals.

The Rev. Joseph D. Bowen, 83, pastor emeritus at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Abington, died of a heart attack Sunday, Nov. 17, at St. Mary Manor in Lansdale. In September 1989, he was appointed the church's pastor and served 16 years before becoming pastor emeritus in June 2005. During his tenure, he worked to build an addition to the parish elementary school, and when finished, it was named in his honor. "He enjoyed interacting with his flock," said his brother, Paul. Father Bowen had planned to help out at the church in retirement, but a stroke in 2004 made that impossible.

IT'S NEVER a good idea to hang out in a police department's parking lot if you have outstanding arrest warrants. Or, say, half a joint sitting on your car's dashboard. Three people learned that lesson the hard way Wednesday, when Cherry Hill officers, checking on suspicious vehicles in their own lot on Mercer Street, found two wanted people in one car and the marijuana in another car. Just before noon, officers checking out a suspicious car parked in the Police Administration Building's lot discovered that two of the four occupants had outstanding arrest warrants.
