The first three picks the Eagles made in the NFL draft, including their second- and third-round selections, have Chip Kelly's imprints all over them. The two players the Eagles took on Friday night - Stanford tight end Zach Ertz and LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan - played on two of the three teams that beat Oregon in Kelly's last two years there. And while Kelly never faced Oklahoma during his four seasons as Ducks head coach, tackle Lane Johnson, the Birds' top pick, played in an up-tempo offense that ran almost as many plays last season as Oregon's.

"I KNOW MOST of the police officers in town," said comedian Wanda Sykes , loving the simple life of Media. "Not because I've been arrested," she clarified, "but because it's a small town. " Sykes, who is performing at the Borgata on Friday and Saturday ("I'm always excited for Atlantic City," Sykes said. "The audience comes to have a good time. They're there, they're happy there and they're little bit drunk. "), splits her time between L.A. and Delaware County. Sharing Sykes' bicoastal lifestyle is her wife and their two children, who often come up in her act. Sykes said she likes her dual life of living in a sprawling urban center like L.A. and the quieter environs of Media.

IN MARCH, Jamaal Jackson couldn't even hang from a pull-up bar. In March, Todd Herremans weighed 275 pounds.

There, they enjoyed - or, endured - not only exotic workouts but also strict, tailored diets that even monitor vitamin and mineral intake.
