Your wedding inside the Linc? Why not? The Eagles announced yesterday that Lincoln Financial Field will be available to host special events, such as corporate events, banquets, trade shows, product launches and even weddings. Since its opening in 2003, the stadium has been available for only a small number of events each year, mostly for charitable causes. The Eagles said areas from the 45,000-square foot SCA Club to the locker room could be set up for specific events.

After 10 seasons at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles are investing $125 million to renovate the stadium during the next two years. The privately financed project will include a seating expansion, two new high-definition video boards, upgraded amenities, WiFi installation, imagery of great moments and players throughout team history, and two new connecting bridges for the upper concourses. The project was started in 2010 and has included research of season-ticket holders, the season-ticket advisory board, and focus groups of fans, as well as surveying architectural firms that have built stadiums since Lincoln Financial Field opened.

IN FEBRUARY 2012, the Eagles started the process of revitalizing Lincoln Financial Field to give fans a better in game experience. More than 2 1/2 years and $125 million later, the renovations are "99 percent complete," according to team president Don Smolenski. All of the work will be done before the Eagles' home opener on Sept. 7 against Jacksonville. The in-game experience at the Linc, which opened in 2003, will be much more modern, an upgrade that was much needed, Smolenski said.

The Eagles are bringing some of the living room to Lincoln Financial Field. As part of its $125 million revitalization of the stadium, team officials said Wednesday, they are putting $25 million worth of high-definition TV displays, including two huge video walls in both end zones, into the 11-year-old stadium. The team also will install 2,000 linear feet of digital "ribbon boards" between seating levels for out-of-town NFL scores and fantasy football statistics, and 1,200 wall-mounted TVs on the concourses and other areas.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers junior cornerback Logan Ryan said that he bled Eagles green while attending Eastern High in Voorhees, and that is another reason Saturday's game at Lincoln Financial Field against Temple will have a special significance. It's not just because Rutgers (6-0, 3-0 Big East) and Temple (3-2, 2-0) are unbeaten in conference play. It's also because Ryan has seen his share of football at the Linc. "It's going to be a dream come true," Ryan said about playing at the Eagles stadium.

The Eagles' newest player is a real powerhouse. The stats are electrifying: On a recent sunny day, this bulky unit churned out 21,033.7 kilowatt hours, nearly enough to power two average homes for a year. Yes, the long-awaited solar panels and wind turbines at Lincoln Financial Field are up and running. More than 11,000 panels have been positioned atop the roof, over some of the parking spots, and armoring the side of the building along I-95. Those are the workhorses.

The Temple Owls have their own locker room, complete with cherry-red metal lockers, at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple's 2003 schedule scrolled on the electronic boards during a media open house at the new stadium yesterday. Yes, it looks as if the Owls will play their home football games at the Eagles' new stadium after all. The two sides have agreed to the basics of a deal, a source familiar with the negotiations said. There were some details to work out, and they are holding up an announcement, but it would be a shock if Temple played its games anywhere else this year.

The U.S. bid committee hoping to stage the World Cup in 2018 or 2022 sent initial letters last week to public officials and stadium operators of 70 potential sites in 50 markets for soccer's showcase tournament. Among those contacted was Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles' interest in hosting matches is unclear, but the stadium has been used for international soccer events in the past and will host a CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal doubleheader July 18. Six of the stadiums used for the 1994 tournament were contacted, including Soldier Field in Chicago; the Cotton Bowl in Dallas; the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando; the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

AS Roma made itself at home in Philadelphia this past week while Inter Milan camped in Washington. The Giallorossi climbed the Art Museum steps and posed like Rocky. They held semisecret training sessions just off the Schuylkill Expressway at Penn's Rhodes Field. Charismatic manager Rudi Garcia held court at the Ritz- Carlton. The home advantage, however, did not extend to game day. Inter spoiled the party with a 2-0 victory in front of 12,169 at Lincoln Financial Field. The barnstorming clubs from Italy's Serie A met as part of the International Champions Cup. Both teams were eliminated from the tournament later in the day when Manchester United beat Real Madrid.

THEY HELD a soccer match at Lincoln Financial Field a few weeks before the first Eagles game in 2003. In the restaurant business, this would be called a soft opening. Don Smolenski, who was the Eagles CFO at the time, and team president Joe Banner headed out into the concourse to check things out. They discovered a rather sizable problem that showed why soft openings are a good idea. "For the soccer game, we realized that our signage was confusing," recalled Smolenski, now the team's president.

RAHEEM BROCK (Dobbins Tech) and Dan Klecko were teammates on the defensive line at Temple for a couple of seasons at the turn of the century, and then again with an Indianapolis Colts team in 2006 that won the Super Bowl. So now maybe it's only right that they're part of the six-person class being inducted into the university's Athletics Hall of Fame, a group that also includes the late football coach Ray Morrison (1940-48). They'll be introduced - along with field hockey's Michelle Murawski (1997-2000)

As part of its effort to improve the student-athlete experience, Temple unveiled the newly renovated Nancy and Donald Resnick Academic Support Center on Monday.

Located on the ground floor at McGonigle Hall, the area houses six private student services rooms for tutoring, peer mentoring and private study; 10 new offices for advisers and learning specialists; an expanded computer lab with 36 computers; and a seating capacity that has gone from 34 to approximately 100.

Jason Peters slipped on sweatpants and a tarpaulin-size green T-shirt Tuesday, then turned to face the group of reporters who had gathered at his locker. Next to him, DeMeco Ryans had dressed and was stepping away from the scrum, making for the door, as he said to Peters, "Got to answer the question, buddy. " Peters did. He'll forever be a folk hero around here for what he did Sunday, for seeing Washington nose tackle Chris Baker flatten Nick Foles with a gratuitous blindside hit to the ribs and for reacting as he did: chugging 10 yards to Baker and sending a right hand toward his head.

The actions and reactions were every bit as boisterous as anticipated. It was great theater with the kind of better-than-fiction plots that professional sports so often provide. After it was over, however, DeSean Jackson was subdued. He was not leaving Lincoln Financial Field with the one thing he had hoped for. "I think it was a great game," Jackson said in what was an exact description of the Eagles' wild, 37-34 win over the wide receiver's new football team from Washington. "Credit to the other team.

Although there was no game on the schedule last week for the Temple Owls, little changed about their preparation. They practiced all last week as if they had a game, and on Monday they turned their attention to Saturday's opponent, Delaware State, at Lincoln Financial Field. "We spent the open week really just trying to get better and prepare for Delaware State," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "We are focused on playing a good football team. " Temple (1-1) looks to bounce back after a 31-24 loss to Navy in its home opener on Sept.

ONCE UPON a time, it was enough just to go to a stadium to watch a game. But that notion is as outmoded as the rotary telephone. Today, it's all about the "game-day experience. " To that end, your Philadelphia Eagles spent the offseason completing a two-year, $125 million improvement project at 11-year-old Lincoln Financial Field. Some of the money went to adding 1,600 seats in three of the stadium's four corners and constructing bridges connecting the upper concourse. In addition, 1,300 new video screens were placed throughout the Iggles' South Philly nest, as well as larger video monitors in several other locations in and outside the Linc.

After the hardest year of his football life, Jeremy Maclin couldn't have taken an easier route to redemption. Nick Foles had fooled the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense with a play fake; LeSean McCoy had thrown a timely and vital block to fend off an oncoming defensive end; and Maclin was alone in the center of Lincoln Financial Field. Here it was, the fourth quarter of Maclin's first game since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last July, and now all he had to do to score the decisive touchdown in the Eagles' 34-17 victory Sunday was to wait for Foles' pass to land in his hands.

Matt Barkley did not create a backup quarterback controversy in his first start in an Eagles uniform. But if the 37-7 win over the New York Jets in the preseason finale Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field was an opportunity for the Eagles to measure the progress of the 2013 fourth-round pick, they can be encouraged by his improvement. The Eagles sat almost every starter and a few top reserves, leaving the game mostly for determining the final spots on the 53-man roster before it must be set Saturday at 4 p.m. "[Friday]

Buddy Ryan coached and lived in Philadelphia for five years, long enough for his son, Rex, to understand that, despite all the stereotypes to the contrary, the core of the city's sports culture isn't bitterness. It's sentimentality. So Rex Ryan, the New York Jets' head coach, did an interesting thing Thursday night in an otherwise uninteresting football game: He started Michael Vick at quarterback and left him in for one play. Vick took the field, pantomimed throwing the football once, and handed the ball off to running back Daryl Richardson.
