Sam Bradford's stalemate with the Eagles ended Monday when the disgruntled quarterback reported to the team's offseason program after skipping the last two weeks. Bradford was unhappy after the team's trade for the No. 2 overall pick to draft Carson Wentz. He skipped voluntary workouts and wanted to be traded. The Eagles have said they want and expect Bradford to remain in Philadelphia, and with no apparent alternative, Bradford returned to the team. "I'm excited to be back on the field today with my teammates and coaches," Bradford said in a statement through his agency.

One month has passed since the Eagles drafted Carson Wentz, and the honeymoon period for the No. 2 overall draft pick remains in effect. Wentz started his third week of organized team activities Tuesday. He continues as the third-string quarterback, and he's enjoyed the discussions about football, schemes, and "life" in a quarterbacks room that includes starter Sam Bradford and second-stringer Chase Daniel. Wentz said he has felt welcomed in the locker room, and that is different from what he heard often happens when a player enters the NFL. "So far, it's been great," Wentz said.

The football players at Conestoga High School had a nickname for the rituals they performed each week, according to prosecutors. No-Gay Thursday. Some players avoided the locker room that day, when players considered certain sexual behavior permissible. The hazing at the elite Chester County public school, routinely ranked near the top academically in national ratings, escalated into assault one day last fall, authorities said Friday. Three seniors, including a team captain, grabbed a freshman they didn't like, who was trying to leave the locker room during a hazing ritual.

By Marc Bookman Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin was suspended on Dec. 22 by the Court of Judicial Discipline for his part in the email scandal engulfing the commonwealth. His defense was telling. "Perhaps my demeanor was 'one of the boys,' " he told the court. "But what I sent was to people who were 'one of the boys.' It was in the locker room. " Lawyer Samuel C. Stretton, a purported expert in legal ethics, supported the locker room theory of defense. "There isn't a judge alive - or a man alive - who hasn't looked at pornography or laughed at an off-color joke," he said.

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"?

Someday, Mike Shinske might take up golf. Someday, he might buy himself a set of clubs and settle into a weekend routine of a relaxing 18. Someday, he might look back and laugh at his reaction at this time last year when a well-meaning doctor suggested he might want to take up the sport. "Golf?" Shinske remembers saying in the hospital room. "I hate golf. " In time, Shinske might grow to appreciate the challenge of chasing that little white ball around the course. For now, he'll stick with lacrosse.

MY FIRST TIME was on a late winter Saturday evening. The details remain hazy. Two of my high school friends from Baltimore were at Villanova and had been telling me I needed to get up to Philadelphia to see a Big 5 doubleheader at the Palestra. I got on a bus from College Park, Md., one Friday afternoon and somehow ended up on a train out to the Main Line. The next night, the first game, a k a the prelim, was already on when we got to the Palestra. Villanova was in the second game.

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.
