Up until Monday, it was possible to understand what Sam Bradford was doing after the Eagles moved up in the draft to take Carson Wentz and essentially relegate Bradford to his spot on the menu as yesterday's potatoes. Even if you didn't agree with Bradford when he stopped attending team activities and requested a trade, at least the rationale made some sense. We can debate forever the notion that a guy who worked to come back from three serious surgeries might not have the resolve to compete, but there was no getting around the fact that his chance to be the long-term starter here had been seriously diminished.

THE DESCRIPTION is perfect, given the occasion. Longtime journalist Franz Lidz likens his childhood friend Arn Tellem, the iconic sports agent, to a traditional Jewish dish. "What separates him from others is he's kind of a gefilte fish in a sea of sharks," Lidz says. Tellem and Lidz, friends since the age of 9 at Belmont Hills Elementary School in Bala Cynwyd, are among seven notables who will be inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday at the Gershman Y, 401 S. Broad St. Tellem, who graduated from Haverford College in 1976 and Michigan Law School in 1979, has a client list that includes Chase Utley and Yu Darvish in baseball and Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook in basketball.

When the dot.com boom crashed in 2001 and the easy money dried up, Guyana native Jonathan Brassington and two colleagues quit their venture capital-backed Philadelphia firm and set up their own small company: LiquidHub. They designed it to be self-funding - with cash from clients, not bets from investors - and went to work upgrading Internet services for some of the region's biggest companies. Today, LiquidHub is big enough, profitable enough, and growing fast enough to welcome investment from around the world.

* DEVIOUS MAIDS. 10 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime. * DROP DEAD DIVA. 9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime. * CROSSING LINES. 9 p.m. Sunday, NBC10. IT MAY BE summer, but television doesn't want to see you break that Sunday night habit. "Game of Thrones" is on hiatus, somewhere beyond the Wall, and after this weekend AMC's "Mad Men" goes away until next year, leaving viewers to argue about whatever it was they just saw and to ponder, I don't know, the Deeper Meaning of Bob Benson.

THE CLIENT LIST. 9 tonight, Lifetime. "A MOTHER WILL do anything for her family," according to Lifetime's promos for "The Client List. " I wasn't aware Jennifer Love Hewitt had children. And so, while I'm not prepared to judge the unidentified woman or women whose "true story" supposedly inspired this tale of small-town prostitution in a bad economy, I will say that for Hewitt, playing a woman who's long been judged for her physical attributes and turns to them for an income when the going gets tough might not be the smartest career move.

The chants of "Rauuuul" that began in April at Citizens Bank Park will perhaps forever shield Raul Ibanez from hearing boos from Phillies fans. But after a dynamic beginning with the Phils, Ibanez has struggled for months. "In the first half of the season, we talked about him being MVP; he could do everything," said manager Charlie Manuel, who rested Ibanez last night against lefthanded starter Wandy Rodriguez in favor of righthanded hitter Ben Francisco. Manuel said that Ibanez would return to the lineup today.
