Q: My girlfriend is bisexual and occasionally sleeps with other women, and I'm cool with that. But she just asked me if it's OK if she sleeps with another man. I'm not sleeping with anyone else. I just haven't felt the need. I'm not OK with her sleeping with a man. I'm thinking about telling her, but I don't want her to feel like I'm taking her freedom. Mia: Dude, if you don't want her to sleep with another guy, you're going to have to walk. It's not your place to try to be her prison warden.

The 76ers did a horrible thing Wednesday night - they defeated the Detroit Pistons. Why horrible? Because the Sixers are supposed to have tanking fever. Yet, they have a dilemma. General manager Sam Hinkie purposely constructed a bad team with the hope of securing one of the top picks in June's NBA draft. However, his players have refused to adopt a losing mentality, and the Sixers have won three of their past six games. Now their schedule really isn't conductive to losing.

RON HEXTALL said he wouldn't scrap the Flyers' young talent at the trade deadline and he was true to his word. That doesn't mean, however, that all of them will be around when the prospects already in the system and those who will join them via the draft develop into NHL players. In fact, one of the determinations facing Hextall this summer is who qualifies as young and who doesn't. Who still has unrealized potential and who has done as much as they're going to do in an NHL uniform?

INDIANAPOLIS - The convergence of the Eagles' talent evaluation and character evaluation could be put to the test with Washington cornerback Marcus Peters, who fits many of the prerequisites for a top prospect - except for the fact that he was dismissed from his team last season. "They want to know the character," Peters said of NFL teams. "Am I a hothead? Which is false. I made some immature decisions . . . and I learn from them and I grow as a man. " Peters, who is 6 feet and 197 pounds with 31½-inch arms, is among an impressive group of cornerbacks in the first round who fit the prototype that the Eagles seek.

All the potential candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination are on record favoring the traditional definition of marriage: one man, one woman. So far, though, most are not talking much about it. Same-sex marriage has become a much more complicated issue for Republicans since 2004, when master strategist Karl Rove helped put gay-marriage bans on the ballot in key states to boost the party's base turnout and help reelect President George W. Bush. Voters, including many Republicans, have become more open to allowing gay men and lesbians to wed, and the right is now recognized in 36 states.

OVER THE COURSE of the next few weeks, Chip Kelly will look at every pass Nick Foles threw this season and last. He will break down his mechanics and his decision-making and his accuracy and his pocket presence and everything else that game film can tell a coach about a quarterback. At some point, he will examine the evidence and come to a conclusion as to whether he thinks the Eagles can one day win a Super Bowl with Foles as their quarterback. There's no way to know that for sure, of course.

Whatever he decides, whenever he decides, Chip Kelly will shrug when he makes the announcement. He will either say, "Nick Foles is our starter. Mark Sanchez is our backup. The starter is ready to go, so he's back in there. " Or he will say, "We feel like Mark has played well enough to keep the job right now. Having Nick ready if something goes wrong is a great situation to be in. " And then he will shrug, as if saying anything other than that would be silly. We'll find out soon enough, maybe as soon as Monday, although even if Foles is cleared to return to practice this week, Kelly would be content to let that drama play out for a few more days.

When Theatre Exile opens playwright Lucas Hnath's darkly topical Red Speedo on Wednesday at its Studio X headquarters, it's not the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd that will be most noticeable. Rather, the pungent scent of chlorine and the splashing of pool water will predominate. Set designer Colin McIlvaine has created a locker-filled training area complete with the edge of an Olympic-sized pool (18 inches deep; no swimming) for Hnath's caustic tale of doping and the moral dilemmas at its heart: How far would you go for the ultimate win?

BOSTON - Chris Pronger is rapidly approaching the 3-year anniversary of his last NHL game, on Nov. 19, 2011. He has not put on full hockey equipment in 1,055 days. There is no question, not even in his mind, that his playing days are over - his illustrious career cut short by concussion-like symptoms. Yet, Pronger remains on the Flyers' roster. His contract does not expire until June 30, 2017. Since suffering his eye injury on Oct. 24, 2011, when he took a high-stick from Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski, which contributes to his symptoms, he has continued to collect the $26,950,000 remaining on his contract.
