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.

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.

Fifty-three thousand people packed Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday night, and it wasn't for the Birds. It was for North Philadelphia-born and raised comedian Kevin Hart, who became, according to his people, the first stand-up comedian to sell out a football stadium. The show was the culmination of Hart's What Now Tour, which has been called the most successful comedy tour in history. Hart's jaunt began in April, and included three sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden among other storied halls.

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.

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.

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.

Somber and Kenny Chesney are typically mutually exclusive terms, particularly at the country music superstar's concerts, which are usually non-stop, feel-good events. But halfway through Chesney's show Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, the vibe changed from celebratory to solemn when the dynamic entertainer offered a shout-out to Folcroft Police Officer Christopher Dorman, who was shot seven times Friday morning, allegedly by a career drug and weapons offender. Chesney thought that Dorman, who is expected to make a full recovery, had died.

For almost the entire time that Jurgen Klinsmann has been part of the American soccer landscape, he has yearned for the kind of occasion that Lincoln Financial Field hosted on Saturday. And not just since he took the helm of the U.S. men's soccer team five years ago. Even before then, as a studio commentator on ESPN's coverage of the 2010 World Cup, he was firing broadsides at aspects of the American soccer system he didn't like. In the same stadium that hosted Klinsmann's first game as U.S. coach in 2011, his longtime dream came true.

Jurgen Klinsmann insists the U.S. men's team won't be playing not to lose, even though barring a miracle, anything but a loss Saturday night will enable the team to advance to the Copa America quarterfinals. When the United States meets Paraguay at Lincoln Financial Field, the math to advance will be simple. The Americans (1-1) would earn a berth in the quarterfinals with a win and would be eliminated with a loss. A tie almost certainly would enable the United States to advance.

Clutching his head in his hands, Edinson Cavani doubled over in front of the goal in the 89th minute. The Uruguay forward had just watched his shot veer right of the goal and with it likely La Celeste's hope of advancing out of the Copa America Centenario's group stage. With star striker Luis Suarez sidelined by an injury, Uruguay looked lost in its 1-0 defeat, unable to capitalize on opportunities to get on the scoreboard and incapable of overpowering a Venezuela team that entered the tournament as a considerable underdog.

As the game clock neared zero, Tufts attack John Uppgren fired the tying shot toward the net. Colin Reymann snatched it, the buzzer sounded, and his teammates sprinted toward the Salisbury goalie in celebration. "I'm not sure who had the ball. It happened so fast. . . . I just kept my hands high," said Reymann, who was named the game's most outstanding player. "Next thing I knew, it was in my stick. " As Salisbury celebrated a 14-13 victory, its first title since 2012, Tufts walked off the field quietly, having been denied its third straight NCAA Division III championship Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.
