Drexel midfielder Nick Saputo is much more at home doing the dirty work of collecting ground balls rather than scoring goals. But as halftime approached Sunday in Drexel's clash with neighborhood rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament, the sluggish Dragons trailed the Quakers, 6-4. Saputo helped provide the shot in the arm the Dragons needed, scoring two of the Dragons' three goals in the final 17 seconds of...

DREXEL'S lacrosse team was flying high after its 16-11 upset win over city rival Penn in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. It was, and is, a big moment for the Dragons, who are in their first postseason in school history. Even though they are excited about advancing, they know there is more to accomplish. "We are excited," head coach Brian Voelker said. "Obviously, it was a big win, and we want to keep this thing moving. I think it is exciting to be here, but we don't want to be satisfied.

AS SOON as Drexel's lacrosse team concluded practice on Tuesday, Nick Saputo made his way off the turf field. He hit the showers, and traded in his helmet and jersey for a green button-down shirt and khaki pants. The junior midfielder was on his way to his co-op job at Sunoco in South Philadelphia. It is not the average day for a 21-year-old, but it is why he chose Drexel. After freshman year, Drexel co-op students alternate 6-month periods of full-time study and full-time employment with university-approved employers.

DENVER - One of his teammates jabbed at him for his robotic, unemotional answers to the media's questions. Another picked on his sense of fashion. But John Mayberry Jr., who wore an ascot with his suit as he boarded a plane out of Denver bound for Los Angeles, took it in stride. Everyone is allowed to have a little fun at his expense when it comes after a victory, especially a victory that was preceded by two defeats in which the Phillies scored a total of two runs at the hitter's haven that is Coors Field.

Since the Eagles once again aren't playing in the Super Bowl, we have another chance to celebrate the cuisines of other teams - without feeling the least bit disloyal. The heritage, population, and climes of both coastal Seattle and mile-high Denver are a great starting point for some fresh and healthful dishes. And it seems too close after making the New Year's resolution for a healthy diet to revert to the worst of the junk-food habits of game day. So, why not draw inspiration from the cities of the two franchises who will be facing off for Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday?

NEWARK, N.J. - Winston Justice wasn't traded unknowingly to the Colts two years ago. He said that the Eagles called him one March day and asked him if he wanted to play elsewhere. "They called and asked, 'Do you want to be traded?' It wasn't like they traded me," Justice, now a Broncos tackle, said this week. "They were like, 'Do you want to do this, like, before we do this? Are you sure?' So it was like they gave me a choice to do it or not. " He said yes and was dealt to Indianapolis for an exchange of sixth-round draft picks that jumped the Eagles ahead 15 spots.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's laugh rang from his corner of the Denver Broncos locker room after Friday's practice, just as it did during his two seasons with the Eagles. Former Eagles coach Andy Reid used to say that "every day is a good day for DRC. " But the team suffered from more bad days than good days when Rodgers-Cromartie was in Philadelphia. Rodgers-Cromartie's smile is for good reason this season. He signed a one-year deal in Denver during the offseason and has become an integral part of the Broncos' defense.

DENVER - Steve Downie and Max Talbot, forwards who were traded for each other on Halloween, had different perspectives when they faced their former teams on Thursday night at the Pepsi Center. Downie, a winger who returned to the Flyers' third line on Thursday, downplayed his return to Denver. He played across three seasons with Colorado but got into only 33 games. "Injuries," Downie said before the game, when asked to characterize his tenure with the Avalanche. "It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. I never really got to show what I could do, but at the same time, it's over with.

DENVER - Things were certainly out of whack last night at the Pepsi Center. In the first 15 minutes of play between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets, there was a total of 22 fouls called. For two teams who like to play at a quicker pace, the refs had them playing in mud early on. The Sixers, usually horrendous at covering the three-point shot, limited the Nuggets to just one make in their first eight attempts. Meanwhile, the Sixers drained half of their first 14. Both teams had been struggling recently to score, a big reason why Denver had lost seven in a row. But the Sixers scored a season-high 68 points in the first half, also yielding 56. Strange happenings, indeed.

DENVER - Second-year forward Arnett Moultrie is getting very close to suiting up for the 76ers for the first time this season after having been sidelined since training camp following ankle surgery in September. For him to get some minutes, Moultrie must get his timing back and get into game shape. If he is to get minutes, perhaps even extended ones, coach Brett Brown said the 23-year-old will have to get rid of the stigma attached to him. "He's looking just like he should be looking, he's looking really out of place in relation to timing and fitness," Brown said.
