Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie married Philadelphia resident Tina Lai in a private ceremony this weekend. Lurie, 61, announced last July that he and Christina Weiss Lurie were getting divorced after 20 years of marriage. Lai will have no official role in the Eagles organization. The wedding was attended by family and close friends. "I am happy and excited as Tina and I begin our lives together," Lurie said in a statement. Lai, 39, is from a family that owns restaurants in Philadelphia, including the Vietnam Restaurant in Chinatown and the Vietnam Cafe in University City.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie tied the knot this weekend with Tina Lai in small ceremony. Lai, who was born in 1973, took over managing Vietnam Restaurant in 2008 from her brother, Benny Lai , but no longer works at the Chinatown staple. (Seriously, summer rolls to die for over there.) "We're very excited for Tina and Jeffrey," said a rep for the family, who also owns Vietnam Cafe in West Philadelphia, adding that they would like to keep the matter personal. Lai is the youngest of eight siblings.

This is a post from Rich Hofmann's blog, The Idle Rich, on Philly.com HIS OFFICE? Your office? "His office," Jeffrey Lurie said. "When Andy and I talked, especially about these kinds of things, it was usually in his office. I just thought you showed respect by doing it that way. " It was coming up on 9 o'clock on Monday morning. That is when the Eagles' owner took the walk down the hall, the walk that he had been dreading. Out the door, down the hall, into a common area and then over to the football side of the NovaCare Complex.

"You won't hear me talking about this during the season. . . . I don't like situations to become sideshows. It's just not my style. I'll reflect and analyze afterwards, and that's what I've always done. " - Jeffrey Lurie, Aug. 30, 2012 One man's situation is another's sideshow it would seem, but after what took place Monday night in Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles' season is officially only one bearded lady and one sword swallower from any given summer night in Wildwood.

Here's a proposition for Jeffrey Lurie, something that should add a little incentive as he sets out to hire a new head coach for the Eagles. The way things have turned out, Lurie is competing for a coach with longtime friend and colleague Joe Banner, who now runs the Cleveland Browns. That competition goes a long way toward explaining the veiled insults and revisionist history Lurie wove into his news conference Monday. Meanwhile, Andy Reid's search for a new job has led to interviews with Kansas City and Arizona, two places where the owners are not exactly perceived as gold-standard material.

PHOENIX - Jeffrey Lurie's presence at the Eagles private workout with top quarterback prospect Geno Smith last week was conspicuous because the team owner rarely takes part in such excursions. Lurie said Monday it was the first time he's attended a scouting trip since 1999, when the Eagles selected Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick. That is revealing for two reasons. It shows the importance of the Eagles' No. 4 overall pick, the earliest they've picked since nabbing McNabb.

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

Christina Lurie leaves the Eagles conference room at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia, then turns and has one final thought. "Give a plug for Inside Job ," she says. Inside Job is the most recent documentary that Christina and Jeffrey Lurie, the owners of the Eagles, have executive-produced through their documentary film company, Screen Pass Pictures. They are filmmakers by trade. Jeffrey Lurie made three movies - V.I. Warshawski , Sweet Hearts Dance , and I Love You To Death - before leaving Hollywood to buy the Eagles in 1994.
