Re-creating the role of Mitch is William Gray Espy, who portrayed Mitch from October 1979 until March 1982.

Just about every mother gives herself to her children, but Jennifer Iannone can say she literally gave a piece of herself to her son. And that act has saved her baby's life. Iannone, 26, of Newark, Del., donated a piece of her liver yesterday to her 3-month-old son Matthew, who has a rare blood clotting disorder. "She said it would only increase the bond between them," said her husband, Jason. Dr. Stephen Dunn and Dr. Adele Casas, both transplant surgeons at St. Christopher's, performed six hours of surgery yesterday morning to remove the left lateral segment of Iannone's liver.

Pennsylvania state police suggested Monday that 21-year-old Matthew R. Royer, missing since leaving Rhode Island on Thursday, might have decided on his own to detour from returning to his Montgomery County home. "While it may be a voluntary move on Matthew's part, we are still expending all resources in this investigation to locate Matthew," said Trooper Morgan Crummy, a spokeswoman at the Skippack barracks. As that possibility took shape, his mother made a tearful plea for her son to contact his parents.

WHEN THEY approached Susie and Brent Celek about getting involved in trying to build a Miracle Field in Northampton Township, a safe, smooth baseball surface for kids in wheelchairs, it felt like deja vu, all over again.

"My brother Matt built obstacle courses and other games for us to play. And he always designed them so that Matthew could play, too. He'd choose the sides for balance, matched the young kids with the older kids.

On Oct. 9, 2010, in the fourth quarter of Vanderbilt's 52-6 victory over Eastern Michigan, Jordan Matthews caught a pass from a quarterback named Jared Funk. It went for 35 yards, and it was the first of Matthews' 262 receptions at Vanderbilt - the most of any player in Southeastern Conference history. On Sunday, in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 29-10 victory over the Browns, Matthews caught a pass from a quarterback named Carson Wentz. It went for 16 yards, and it was the latest of Matthews' 159 receptions with the Eagles - the most of any player through 33 games in franchise history.

Jordan Matthews never missed a football game in his life until he sat the entire preseason with a knee injury. All along, he was confident he would return for the season opener. And in the days before the Eagles host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the coaches can comfortably prepare knowing they will have their No. 1 wide receiver back on the field. Matthews' return bolsters a wide receiving corps that lacks experience - and production - outside of Matthews, who fell three yards shy of 1,000 yards last season, when he led the Eagles in receiving.

Kickboxer lives! A reboot of the classic 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme film, the film Kickboxer: Vengeance is hitting select theaters this weekend (and will be available on Video on Demand as well). The story, about a man avenging his brother's death, remains largely the same. However, although Van Damme has a small role in the reboot, the rest of the cast is decidedly different. Alain Moussi replaces Van Damme as Kurt Sloane. Van Damme portrays Master Durand, Dave Bautista plays the villainous Tong Po, the late Darren Shahlavi portrays Eric Sloane, Gina Carano plays Marcia, Georges St.-Pierre plays Kavi, Sara Malakul Lane portrays Liu and Matthew Ziff plays Bronco.

But none of them ever prevented him from answering the bell. "I had never missed a sporting event," the Eagles wide receiver said.
