Gloucester Catholic headed to Las Vegas this week in search of quality competition. On Thursday, The Inquirer's top-ranked baseball team found it, when Bishop Manogue of Reno, Nev., scored in the bottom of the seventh inning to hand the Rams their first loss, 3-2, in the Bishop Gorman Easter Classic. Gloucester Catholic's aggressiveness on the basepaths resulted in a 2-0 first-inning lead, without the benefit of a hit. After Pat Kane was hit by a pitch, Brett Tenuto walked, and both advanced on a double steal.

THE EAGLES WILL get to the Super Bowl this season! The Eagles will win the Super Bowl!! They will win another one within the next 5 years!!! Who says so? Chad Lewis says so, and here's a guy who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, doesn't curse and doesn't feel an ounce of bitterness that the last time the Eagles got to the Super Bowl he caught the touchdown pass in the NFC Championship Game that sent them on their way, but broke his foot on the play, shattering those boyhood backyard dreams.

Eagles tight end Chad Lewis experienced his best and worst moments in last year's 27-10 NFC title win over Atlanta. Lewis caught two touchdown passes, but also suffered a sprained left foot that not only sidelined him for the Super Bowl but also took about 10 months to heal. He rejoined the Eagles on Nov. 9, and in five games has three receptions for 39 yards. Lewis, 34, spoke recently about his comeback and his experiences away from the football field. Question: After such a difficult injury, how are you feeling?

The news earlier in the week that Eagles running back Brian Westbrook is out for the season with a Lisfranc sprain is under review. On Tuesday, the Eagles made the announcement that an MRI exam revealed that Westbrook had a Lisfanc sprain in his right foot and would be sidelined for the final four games of the regular season. Baltimore foot specialist Mark Myerson, who examined Westbrook after the initial announcement, now has a different interpretation of the running back's ailment.

Donovan McNabb, Terrell Owens and Brian Westbrook. They were the Eagles' version of the Big Three at the start of this season. Now, like the team's playoff hopes, they are all gone. Westbrook became the third and final player from that trio to check out of the 2005 season yesterday when an MRI exam revealed that the running back has a Lisfranc sprain of his right foot. He suffered the injury on the Eagles' first offensive series of Monday night's disastrous 42-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at Lincoln Financial Field.

The last time the Eagles played the Atlanta Falcons, Chad Lewis was right in the middle of the action and the celebration. Thanks in large part to his two touchdown catches in the right corner of the north end zone at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles finally cleared the NFC championship game hurdle that they had stumbled on the previous three seasons. As it turned out, of course, it was a bittersweet moment for the Eagles' classy veteran tight end. The first TD catch, an amazing tightrope-walking grab, will be part of team highlight reels 100 years from now and still draws viewing requests from his friends and neighbors back in Utah.

Chad Lewis still has a locker with a nameplate on top of it and a collection of No. 89 jerseys hanging inside at the Eagles' NovaCare Complex. The veteran tight end revealed last week that he also still has a burning desire to play the game of football, and, even though he's an unemployed free agent at the moment, it's hard to imagine him playing anywhere other than Philadelphia. Just back from a visit to China with NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, Lewis was in Baltimore on Friday to visit Mark Myerson, the foot specialist best known for his operation on wide receiver Terrell Owens' ankle last season.

The Eagles signed tight end James Whalen to a two-year contract yesterday, but it doesn't necessarily signal that veteran Chad Lewis is about to retire. In fact, a league source said yesterday that the Eagles are convinced that Lewis, 33, is determined to return from the Lisfranc sprain of his left foot that he suffered making his second touchdown catch in the team's Jan. 23 NFC championship victory over the Atlanta Falcons. With Lewis recovering from the foot surgery and fellow tight end L.J. Smith undergoing back surgery recently, the Eagles felt as though they needed at least one healthy tight end on their roster even at this early stage of the off-season.

THANK YOU, Eagles. Not only for the way you played, but also for the way you carried yourselves off the field. This was a team the entire family could - and did - get behind. In my house, lined up on the sofa on Sunday night, we made some memories. It was just the way you hope it would be: me with my three sons, 4, 7 and 9. It's funny how things come full circle. Just as I did 30 years ago (then in homage to Roman Gabriel), my boys were each wearing No. 5 jerseys.
