Flyers forward Brayden Schenn will have a hearing with the NHL's player safety department on Tuesday for a hit to the head of Washington's T.J. Oshie on Sunday. Oshie, who fought Schenn in the previous game, went to the locker room but later returned to the ice. The Capitals won the game, 1-0, and eliminated the Flyers, four games to two. If Schenn is suspended, it will carry into the 2016-17 season. Schenn can become a restricted free agent, but the Flyers are expected to re-sign him.

DeMarco Murray had a chance to address a sensitive issue head-on Tuesday after the Eagles' walk-through practice in preparation for their Thanksgiving game against the Lions in Detroit. Instead, the team's top running back opted to slide out a side door before the locker room opened to reporters. It was a similar on-field maneuver by Murray two games ago against Miami that created the issue, which eventually resulted in a searing comment from an anonymous teammate on Sunday after a blowout loss to Tampa Bay. On the final play of the first quarter in the Dolphins game, the NFL's 2014 rushing champion took a handoff on the right hash mark from quarterback Sam Bradford and ran about 15 yards to his left in order to pick up the 1 yard he needed for the first down.

The players had to laugh. It was the first thing they noticed when they walked into the visitors' locker room at Paul VI. "We don't know who did it or why it was there," Alexis Santarelli said. "But somebody drew a picture of Mickey Mouse on the board in the locker room. " "It was like he followed us home," Elizabeth Radley added. The Bishop Eustace girls' basketball team didn't literally expect to bring Mickey Mouse back with them from a recent holiday tournament in Disney World.

LeSean McCoy and DeMarco Murray are about as different as running backs can get in the NFL, both on and off the field. One runs like an improvisational jazz musician with unpredictable results. The other methodically reads the notes and plays them as written. Their football styles are an extension of their personalities. McCoy is capricious. He is often gregarious but can turn inward on a dime. He can be brutally honest, sometimes to a fault. Murray is introverted. His words are measured, as is his demeanor.

COLIN KAEPERNICK is trending on several fronts. Even the Guv is weighing in. Ed Rendell, the football-crazy politico who writes a column for the Daily News' weekend edition, told Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 that the Eagles should consider trading for Kaepernick. "One thing is clear, Sam Bradford is not, in my judgment, the quarterback of the future for the Eagles," Rendell said. "What I would like to see us get at the end of the year, I'm told that San Francisco is going to be looking to trade Kaepernick, and I think, in Chip Kelly's system, Kaepernick could be the perfect quarterback because he can run. " The 49ers' quarterback reportedly has been labeled a loner for constantly wearing his headphones in the locker room.

"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.

MEXICAN TV sportscaster Ines Sainz has a smoking-hot body, the kind most women would kill for, and the type of job that being easy on the eye is a career requirement. But that doesn't mean she was asking for trouble when she showed up in the New York Jets locker room in painted-on jeans. When you stop and consider her vavavavoom image and that she got her position in part for being eye candy for TV Azteca's male viewers, Sainz was doing her job. For her, dressing in provocative clothing is as much a part of how she earns her living as her interviewing skills.

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.
