THE OTHER DAY, my oldest daughter, Adrianne, told youngest daughter, Eve, that she had a boyfriend. Big mistake. Not only did Eve tell us that Adrianne had a boyfriend. She told us his name, rank, Social Security number, height, weight, and Facebook alias. But before you think ill of her, it's not Eve's fault. She was born talking. When she was a baby, she would sit on the bed making strange, word-like sounds while watching Letterman. We called it her late night talk show.

On the eve of Rafael Palmeiro's expected return from a 10-day suspension for steroid use, the players union and Major League Baseball are dealing with another problem - an epidemic of rumors about which next big name will be suspended. Faced with a swell that was becoming a storm, baseball and the players' union took what they called an "unusual step" yesterday - issuing a joint statement in the hope it would quash the rampant speculation.

There are many ways to cross the threshold into 2015, from gala affairs to quiet romantic dinners. But on New Year's Eve, nothing beats a gathering of people of all ages, sharing a toast of something sparkling. Old friends and new, parents alongside children, together between past and future. Sparkling, flaming, fancy, and formal can be had in many a venue, or evoked with simple gestures at home. Light all the candles you can find. Create a centerpiece with glittery ribbons and mirrored balls.

DON'T CALL IT a comeback. After releasing her first album in nine years last spring, Philly-born rapper Eve has another project: a sitcom. The sitcom, slated for the 2014-15 pilot season on ABC, is reportedly a multicamera interracial romantic comedy. Eve is no stranger to being in front of the camera. She starred in an eponymous UPN sitcom that lasted from 2003 to 2006, playing a fashion designer named Shelly, despite the fact that the show was called "Eve," which seemed rather silly.

THE BEYONCE lip-synching controversy shouldn't be a controversy at all, according to Philly girl Eve . "Why are people making such a big deal out of it?" she said to our colleague Jenice Armstrong. " At this point, if you need to question this girl's talent, you should just stop. You should really just never listen to music. We all know the girl can sing. We all know she's a perfectionist. " Eve, who recently agreed to be a spokeswoman for the Philly-based Big Brothers, Big Sisters mentoring organization, added that "this was a huge moment in history for America and for her. Why not dot all the i's and cross the t's when you know that at any drop of a dime, if somebody asks you to blow, you can blow.

In an era of fashionista rappers with gangsta attitude, such as Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks, it's awesome — even necessary — that Eve make her return. At 33, Philly's self-proclaimed "pit bull in a skirt" can show up any of her imitators. She proved as much during an intimate (200 people) gig Wednesday at Fishtown's funky Kung Fu Necktie. From her earliest days as one of the Ruff Ryders to her own pop-hop hits ("Who's That Girl?") and a klatch of smash collaborations with Gwen Stefani, Eve was always the queen of swagger.

Philly's first lady of rhyme, E-V-E, has been lying L-O-W. But now it's time for Eve to start showing her face and those signature paw-print tattoos. What better way to get back in the mix of things than to throw a party in her favorite city? In celebration of her 22nd birthday, the only female in the Ruff Ryder camp is throwing a high-profile bash at the Franklin Institute from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday. "She's very excited because this is her first really official birthday party in Philly since she became a successful recording artist," said her father, Ron Wilch.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers took some criticism for releasing Tony Wroten on Christmas Eve. However, that wasn't their intent. They decided to cut the backup point guard in order to create a roster spot to complete the trade for Ish Smith from the New Orleans Pelicans. They just never intended for it to happen Thursday. The Sixers wanted to make the trade on Saturday, the day after Christmas. However, the Pelicans pushed to make it happen on Thursday. As a result, Wroten received the bad news Thursday while the Sixers were on the trade call with the Pelicans.

Last week, just days after signing a lifetime deal with Nike that figures to earn him more than a half-billion dollars, LeBron James tweeted a recipe for kale cake to his 25 million followers. Where to begin? Whatever their implications for the future of sports - not to mention humanity - the details in that sentence, coming to light so close to the holidays, got me thinking about a somewhat more obscure professional athlete and a favorite Christmas sports memory. In this Age of Irony, Christmas remains the last bastion of earnestness, the only day when sentimentality is not just permitted but demanded.

I can still remember the day my daughter, Eve, promised to take me to Paris. I was sitting at the kitchen counter, and she was telling me of her dreams. It's something she's always done because, from the time she could talk, Eve has been a dreamer, and I have been her kindred spirit. Eve's dreams are painstakingly specific: a pink Infiniti convertible; male and female shih tzus; shopping sprees funded by her job as a lawyer; a corner office with a view. However, this dream of Paris is different from the rest.

I have learned a critical piece of fatherly information through my various clandestine sources and underground networks. This is not the usual scuttlebutt about my kids getting home 3 1/2 minutes late from school. Nor is it the average news I gather through routine spying. This is more than finding an ugly text message, or learning that my children viewed a forbidden movie on Netflix. This is big news, dear reader; news I've been preparing for since the day my daughter was born.
