NINE-YEAR-OLD Tommy "TJ" Ramos doesn't have a broken heart, his ticker just marches to its own beat - like Dallas Stars hockey player Rich Peverley's heart. Luckily, both guys - who have the same genetic heart condition called CPVT - were surrounded by their teammates and quick-thinking men with CPR skills when their irregular heartbeats led to sudden cardiac arrests during sporting events. TJ, a Philly kid who plays baseball and hockey, got a chance to meet Peverley's teammates yesterday morning before their game against the Flyers.

ON THE SURFACE, it seems like a marriage made in free-agency heaven. The Eagles, as you may have heard, need a ball-hawking cover safety. And as luck would have it, Jairus Byrd, one of the league's very best ball-hawking cover safeties, is expected to be available on Tuesday when the 2014 free-agent signing period commences. Byrd, 27, wants ridiculous money. He's reportedly looking for a deal that will pay him in excess of $9 million a year. But the Eagles have more than enough salary-cap room - $24.1 million - to accommodate him. Chip Kelly also knows the guy pretty well.

IT'S THE TIME of year when gyms are packed with fitness enthusiasts working hard to stay in summer shape. And while it's great to see people embracing an active lifestyle, what isn't always great is their gym etiquette. Apparently, some have lost their manners along with their love handles. These are the 12 categories of gymgoers that I consider to be the dirty dozen of locker-room louts. Some of what they do is gross, some just rude. It would be better if everyone remembered that one Golden Rule, both in and out of the gym. 1 EQUIPMENT HOGS They "hold" an elliptical machine or a spin bike for a friend who's not there yet. Or they put clothing or water bottles on equipment to "save" it for their next set. Can you say "selfish"?

"My parents were immigrants, and my father worked in a factory. That's why I appreciate Temple's populist mission so much," George Edberg-Olson said in 2000. "I'm not a wealthy man, but clearly Temple University enabled me to progress in my life. " The occasion was the 2000 opening of Edberg-Olson Hall, Temple's football training headquarters at 11th and Diamond Streets, for which he contributed $1 million of the estimated $7 million construction cost. On Monday, Dr. Edberg-Olson, 84, a former professor of Spanish at Temple, died of complications from Alzheimer's disease at the Artman Lutheran Home in Ambler, where he had resided for the last five years.

IF ASKED now to name his favorite television show, Mike Capriotti goes with "NCIS. " That won't be the case some Friday night this winter.

A zoning dispute over whether a two-story locker room at 8900 Hawthorn Lane can be used as a classroom was left unsettled by the Springfield Zoning Hearing Board this week. The property is owned by Michael Singer of Lower Merion and has been leased to La Petit Enfant Day Care since September. The day care center operates out of a classroom building on the property. Day care officials have sought to expand into the two-story building, which is behind the classroom building.

RE SOLOMON Jones' column on Ines Sainz: Great article. I couldn't agree more. Women have every right to be in a locker room, however, there has to be some professionalism on their part. I have seen too many pictures of this particular reporter wearing tight jeans and half shirts. She looks great, but this isn't a fashion show. Keep up the good work - I look forward to reading more.
