THE Eagles have done GREAT this season! The NFL cried like a little girl about security concerns - so the Philadelphia police were tasked with protecting the stadium, both teams and the fans. Then we have rocket scientist Arlen Specter whine that he thought it was overkill - this from the man who 40 years ago claimed with other stooges that a "single bullet" can ricochet 27 times through two different people, killing both? The police did a great job, and the fans loved it. Veterans Stadium belongs to Philadelphia - not the state, not the NFL, not "the viewing community.

With Justin Allgood's trade to the Tulsa Talons on Tuesday, Soul quarterback Ryan Vena has the first-string spot all to himself as the team moves into the second half of its Arena League schedule Saturday night in Cleveland against the Gladiators. "To be honest, I still feel like I'm earning it," Vena said. "I want to go out there and prove not only to myself, but to my coaches and teammates, that I'm worthy of the position. I really just want to go out there and lead us to wins.

Coming off their worst loss, playing with an injury-depleted roster, and staring down the double-barrel of the league's most prolific passing attack, the Soul took the field for last night's game at the Wachovia Center knowing one thing. Win, or they could kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. Yet with their inaugural Arena Football League season on the line, the Soul (5-8) put on a performance only a mother could love. Las Vegas, which had won just once in six previous road games, made itself right at home in the Big House with a 63-35 victory.

The Gladiators Pee Wee A ice hockey club was hoping for respectability last month when it participated in the 13th annual Spartan Spring Tournament in St. Catherine's, Ontario. But after four games against bigger and older players, the Gladiators came home with much more. The team, which trains out of the Coliseum in Voorhees and Hollydell Ice Rink in Washington Township, came home as a division champion in the high-profile tournament. In addition, two of the Gladiators won individual titles in the skills competition and another took second place.

CLEVELAND - Soul coach Mike Hohensee had enough players to finish the Soul's 59-41 loss to the Cleveland Gladiators Saturday night . . . but it was touch and go for a while. The Soul's Brandon Perkins, Larry Brackins and Damian Walker were sent to the locker room in the closing minutes of a game that got uglier with every tick of the fourth-quarter clock. Gladiators star defensive back Joe Phinisee and another of his teammates also watched the waning seconds from the locker room as tempers rose even if the scores didn't.

IF THE ARENA LEAGUE is a steppingstone, then all Cleveland quarterback Shane Austin needs to get to the NFL is a few more games against the Soul. Ditto for his favorite receiver.

Austin tied the AFL record with a staggering 11 touchdown passes, the last one came with a heavy dose of luck as three Soul d-backs and a Cleveland receiver banged into one another.

The AFL has wanted to create a rival for the Soul since the team joined the league in 2004. It once put Dallas in the same division, hoping to mimic Eagles-Cowboys, but that didn't work. There was a brief period when the Soul and the New York Dragons used to fight each other before exhibition games, but that fizzled out when the New York franchise folded. Currently, Cleveland is the villain of choice among Soul followers. A rivalry needs animosity (which the Soul and Gladiators share)

IT WAS A LITTLE noisier at Soul practice on Wednesday morning and the coaches couldn't have been happier. Wide receiver Donovan Morgan was back for his first day of on-field work since fracturing his left wrist on April 1. "Sitting out was very difficult," said Morgan, who chatted up and encouraged teammates as usual during Wednesday's preparations. "It was like seeing your troops go to battle and you're not able to go out on the front lines and be there with them. I'm one of those guys that wants to be on the front lines with my troops and lead the way. Sitting on the sidelines was killing me. " Morgan, a team captain, had 23 catches and eight TDs in two-plus games before getting injured.
