Frank Olivo, the Santa Claus who got pelted with snowballs at the Eagles game that winter day in 1968, died Thursday, April 30, at Kindred Hospital Philadelphia-Havertown. Mr. Olivo, 66, of Glenolden, had battled heart disease, diabetes, and other ailments for 25 years, and had been seriously ill since mid-January. A South Philadelphia native, Mr. Olivo, known as "Frankie," was a barber, worked for years in the casino industry in Atlantic City, sold cars, and was in the mortgage business.

JUST AS FANS started to get good and worked up about the Eagles' inactivity in the early hours of free agency, the team dropped a load of signings on the reeling Twitterverse. Five new Eagles joined the roster, though they weren't the splashy, top-of-the-market guys some fans always seem to want, in the face of solid evidence that trying to build a winner that way doesn't work. The signings reflected what general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Chip Kelly said in the weeks leading up to the opening of the market: The Eagles need players, as they transition from the Andy Reid era to new systems.

1 Steve Van Buren. The best ever. How do you judge? How do you cross eras and compare? Just what is universal, what is the tipping point, what is the criteria for such an honor as being named the best ever for a franchise that has existed for more than seven decades? Championships. When it comes down to it, the game of football is about winning championships, and no one was more instrumental in bringing not one, but two championships to the city of Philadelphia than Steve Van Buren.

FOR MORE than a few of the 75 players on the Eagles' roster, tonight's game at the Jets will be the last time they will pull on a football jersey, the end of something they've devoted their lives to since they were in elementary school. That is a serious and solemn thing, even as we roll our eyes at the idea of having to watch a preseason game minus starters, to be contested at least partly among men who will never play a down in the NFL. The cutdown to the regular-season roster limit of 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday looms.

JORDAN MATTHEWS was ticked. He had run the sideline pass route cleanly, but the ball arrived a little late and a little high, and by the time he jumped and extended all of his 6-3 frame to haul it in, a defensive back was upon him and there was no room to run. And thus, no first down. So, as Matthews ran from the field, the sound of his frustration carried out across the practice fields of the NovaCare Complex. Carried, literally, into the streets. "That's nothing," he said after the second day of minicamp had come to an end. "That's just competing.

Training camp begins in July.

PRETTY WOMEN in high-heeled, rhinestone-trimmed sneakers girl-tossing a pink football to each other. That's what I halfway expected to see the night I went to watch Philly's lingerie football team do some off-season conditioning. Boy, did I have it wrong. If they started out in makeup, they'd sweated it off by the time I got there. In fact, there was nothing the least bit glamorous about the Philadelphia Passion players I saw at 7 Deuce Sports, in Medford, N.J., last week. The women, whose team is part of the recently renamed Legends Football League , were hitting it hard, to the point that a few were hobbling.

The Eagles' plan for handling the Riley Cooper situation became clear Tuesday. There is no plan. There never was. The team acted quickly to fine Cooper for his videotaped racist threat, then ducked low and hoped it would all blow over. The assumption that Cooper went to some kind of sensitivity training or counseling program appears incorrect. The Eagles excused him from team activities on Friday so he could "seek assistance. " Coach Chip Kelly said there was no timetable for Cooper's return.

Former Eagles wide receiver Irving Fryar and his mother went on trial Tuesday on charges they conspired to defraud six banks in South Jersey and Philadelphia as part of a $1 million mortgage scheme. If they are convicted of the conspiracy and theft-by-deception charges lodged against them, they could face five to 10 years in prison and up to $150,000 in fines, according to the state attorney general, whose office is handling the contentious case in Mount Holly. Fryar, 52, of Springfield, Burlington County, arrived at the courthouse dressed in a bold pin-striped suit and a tan hat. His 74-year-old mother, Allene McGhee, a retired school bus driver from Willingboro, wore a blue-and-white polka-dot dress.

IT IS JULY and the NFL sleeps - except for the police blotter stuff, and the anticipation for a ruling about Tom Brady, and the confirmation that NFL teams share north of $7 billion in national media income every year before they sell a ticket or even turn on the lights. OK, the NFL never really sleeps, even when the entire league is on vacation. And so, it isn't such a surprise that the Eagles have made some news without doing anything. This is the report: that new quarterback Sam Bradford, he of the ever-healing ACL, is not planning to sign a long-term contract extension before the season begins.

ISSUE | ARTS ECONOMY Cultural learning Yes, Philadelphia needs more arts jobs to "enrich the lives of all Philadelphians," as an Inquirer editorial noted ("A need for more arts jobs," July 20). And it isn't much of a stretch that many of the artists enriching our lives will get their start in the city's public schools, and that the audiences who fill the galleries and concert halls begin their love of the arts in grade school. That's why continuing to remove the arts from the School District curriculum certainly won't add to the enrichment of our lives.

INSTEAD of leading today's column with more unsavory Bill Cosby stuff (see below), let's congratulate the 2015 honorees of The Kennedy Center Honors, which celebrates its 38th year in December by honoring six big names instead of the usual five. While it's true that the honorees have gone from mostly high culture to mostly mainstream pop culture over the decades, reflecting the country's changing tastes in the arts, this year's group is impressive: American rock band the Eagles , singer-songwriter Carole King , "Star Wars" filmmaker George Lucas , actress and singer Rita Moreno , conductor Seiji Ozawa and actress and Broadway star Cicely Tyson . Each has enjoyed lengthy, ground-breaking careers.

SARAH Martinez-Helfman, the longtime executive director of the Eagles Youth Partnership, will step down from her post to take over as president of the Samuel S. Fels Fund, the Eagles announced yesterday. Martinez-Helfman has been in charge of the Eagles charity since its inception in 1995. Among its programs for children in the Philadelphia area are the Eye Mobile, Book Mobile and annual playground building. "There was nothing she wanted more than to see the smile of the child who could see better or the child who was able to play on a newly constructed playground," Eagles president Don Smolenski said in a statement.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. - Brandon Boykin doesn't want your pity. So, a broken leg dropped him from the first round to the fourth and cost him $5 million? "It might be the best thing that ever happened to me," Boykin said. So, the Eagles won't move him from nickel cornerback after he outplayed big-name outside corners Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams? "I don't think I've entered my prime," said Boykin, entering his fourth season.

BESSEMER, Ala. - If, behind every good man there's a good woman, then what stands behind a grown man? Because Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis was asked how he would describe linebacker DeMeco Ryans. "He's a grown man," Davis said. "He's very secure with himself. He's a natural leader because of that security. People who are calm under pressure - people tend to follow those guys. [The moment] doesn't get too big for him. He settles people down who are kind of losing their mind.

THE EAGLES yesterday signed guard John Moffitt to a one-year contract and released guard Cole Manhart. The 6-4, 319-pound Moffitt was drafted by Seattle in the third round in 2011 and last played in the NFL two years ago with Denver. Moffitt, 28, who played collegiately at Wisconsin, signed a four-year contract for nearly $3 million after the Seahawks drafted him. He started 15 games over two years in Seattle before a 2013 trade to Denver. He retired in November of that year.

STEVE WEATHERFORD is the punter for the New York Football Giants. He's worked in radio and TV and does a lot of philanthropic work, focusing on children, health and fitness, and family. Seems like a nice man. He now also knows how to backpedal. On Friday, on WFAN's "Boomer and Carton Show," he took shots at Eagles quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford and coach Chip Kelly. "I'm the biggest Tim Tebow fan in the world," he said. "I mean, who wouldn't want their daughter to date a guy like that?
