Not players. Not coaches. Not fans. Under "NFL KICKOFF!" the cover of Maxim magazine gives top billing to "CHEERLEADERS ON TRAMPOLINES. " Featured in photos are only four airborne dancers - and one is from the Eagles. She's Ivelisse Rivera, 22, dental assistant, Hammonton High grad, Atlantic County resident, and three-year veteran of the Bird's sideline squad. Two years ago, another Eagles enthusiaser, Janelle Stangl, appeared in Maxim, sporting little more than an Eagles towel.

IF YOU'RE a subscriber to Maxim mag, your Czech is in the mail. And she's not happy about it. As angry-model week continues, Czech babe Veronica Varekova says the new Maxim unlawfully uses her photo on its cover. The pic - featuring Varekova in stockings, high heels and naked from the waist up . . . not that there's anything wrong with that - was taken for a British GQ feature on Victoria's Secret last year. Afterward, photo agency Corbis sold the photos to Maxim. Varekova says she was never told of the sale and says she learned of the Maxim cover five days ago. "They put me on the cover without my permission," she told the Associated Press yesterday.

Having dinner at Maxim's is like having dinner at your grandmother's house - assuming that your grandmother can cook. The food is comforting, the chicken soup is real, and the service is informally attentive - you feel taken care of, not waited on. This glatt kosher restaurant, a fixture on Route 70 in Cherry Hill since 1993, owes its down-to-earth cheerfulness and tasty cuisine to chef/owner Eti Cohen. Cohen, a native of Jerusalem who is of Turkish and Moroccan descent, has been in the restaurant business for 24 years - first in Israel, then in New York and finally in Cherry Hill, for the last six years.

"Happy 2000, rich American consumer! I am sharing your credit card number with the world!" How would it feel to log on to this e-mail message from a computer hacker somewhere east of the Volga? Uh-oh, looks as if you got more than you bargained for when you ordered that Dave Matthews CD online for Christmas. For as many as 25,000 credit-card customers of the Connecticut-based online retailer CD Universe, that scenario came unhappily close to true. The hacker "Maxim" didn't write CD Universe customers personal e-mail notes, but he did indeed post their account numbers on the Internet after a $100,000 blackmail ploy failed.

Who is the right one? Kate Upton . Penélope Cruz . Eva Longoria . Who's the sexiest of them all? There's a pop-cult cacophony, with mags naming different women as the year's best in, um, being a woman. People mag crowned Sports Illustrated bombshell Upton, 22, at its inaugural awards show in Beverly Hills. Maxim went with the more mature and bookish Longoria, 39, who tells the mag about earning a master's degree in Chicano studies. "Back in high school I really was the chameleon.

Years of observing the peaks and pratfalls of public officials have led me to a bit of wisdom that I now offer, along with its corollary, to President Clinton: If you're going to be in trouble no matter what you do, you might as well do the right thing. Had I thought to offer this advice sooner, it might have spared the President a good deal of anguish, confusion and political and personal embarrassment. In short, it might have helped him minimize the damage of the Lani Guinier affair.

The Hollybush Festival opened its seventh summer season at Glassboro State College on Saturday with The Merry Widow, Franz Lehar's operetta of sloshy sentiment and musical refinement that rarely fails to leave an audience humming even before its conclusion. This predominantly professional production, with a few Glassboro students, added its own allures of agile, choreographically inclined direction and a musically vivacious cast. Operetta, like the Broadway musical, strews a path of thorns before the opera singer.

Maxim disses Sarah Jessica Anybody could pick Charlize Theron as the Sexiest Woman Alive. But picking the unsexiest one is a lot harder. Or so the folks over at Maxim magazine think. But the boy-o mag didn't shrink from the task. The unfortunate winner is . . . Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker. Carrie Bradshaw, Parker's character, is supposed to be a man magnet and a fashion standout, but Maxim uncharitably labels her "Barbaro-faced," which some might consider a slur on the late, lamented local equine hero.

From the cover of the October-November issue of King magazine, actress Meagan Good pouts her lips, juts her camisole-clad bosom, and casts an alluring gaze. On the cover of this fall's Fuego, the quarterly magazine's second issue, Colombian actress Paola Rey also stares enticingly at prospective buyers. She holds her cascading hair back with one hand and tucks the other ever so slightly in the folds of her saffron strapless swimsuit. Only creative angles and dainty pieces of clothing separate these photos and the more explicit ones inside from the photos in these magazines' X-rated counterparts.

Notice how sibylline, even pythonic (perchance parlous?), the heavens looked yesterday? A prophetic cinematic convergence, once derailed by (no doubt) satanic forces, is about to happen: Fellow Aussie titans Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman, who were slated to star in the now-defunct Eucalyptus, will finally engage each other in a thespian pas de deux in a yet-to-be-titled film helmed by fellow countryman and cinematic giant Baz Luhrmann, whose prodigious baton inspired Kidman's lovely turn in Moulin Rouge.

PHOENIX - Asking the same question several times in different ways, to see whether the responses remain consistent, is a tactic used in police interrogations - at least the ones we see on TV cop shows. It also happens more or less by accident whenever a group of at least three dozen reporters encounters a subject willing to stand and talk for nearly 40 minutes. Jeffrey Lurie didn't say why he wasn't available to talk about the Eagles' front-office restructuring from the time of the Jan. 2 announcement that Eagles coach Chip Kelly was taking charge of personnel until lunchtime yesterday, outside the Arizona Biltmore hotel at the NFL meetings.

LeSean McCoy walked off the field in Landover, Md., on a Monday night last September just 1 yard shy of the most rushing yards he ever recorded in a game. McCoy knew little about Chip Kelly's offense before Kelly arrived, but he marveled after the game, Kelly's first as Eagles coach, at the amount of space available to make plays. His 31-carry, 184-yard opening act realized his potential in Kelly's offense - and satisfied Eagles fans and fantasy football owners. He finished the season as the NFL's leader in carries (314)

When Orangetheory Fitness was pitched to me last fall, I was intrigued. I thought it might be a workout program based on my favorite fruit, a citrus-powered way to a better body. Turns out Orangetheory Fitness, which began in Florida, is a new type of high-energy, high-intensity circuit training that aims to burn a large number of calories during and after the session. Orange refers not to the fruit but to an exertion zone equivalent to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate.

Lise Funderburg teaches creative writing at the University of Pennsylvania; her latest book is "Pig Candy: Taking My Father South, Taking My Father Home. " On a recent Wednesday morning, the sun-flooded basement of Mount Airy's Allens Lane Art Center buzzed with activity. As students arrived, volunteers pulled unfinished projects off shelves, setting onto long work tables the hunks of clay that had been molded into reclining nudes and cats and devil masks, slip-cast sculptures and hand-formed coil pots.

Patriarch Maxim of Bulgaria, 98, who weathered a revolt over his communist-era ties to lead the Balkan country's Orthodox Christians for more than 40 years, has died. The patriarch died of heart failure early Tuesday at a Sofia hospital where he had been for a month, the Holy Synod said in a statement. Orthodox Christianity is Bulgaria's dominant religion, followed by more than 80 percent of the country's 7.4 million people. Maxim was the church's leader for more than four decades, bridging the country's transition from communism and withstanding efforts to oust him by the new democratic government and rebel priests who saw him as a communist stooge.

ALONG WITH the Super Bowl and  World Series, the Olympics are a major motivator for sales of new TVs. And this week, some retailers are making the buying  easier — slashing set prices and throwing in extras. Gizmo Guy believes bigger is always better in a TV screen, so aim for the largest size you can fit in your space. And if the TV comes with 3D capability, so much the better. More than 200 hours of the Olympics will be carried in 3D by the likes of Comcast, DirecTV and Verizon FiOS.

THE NET at the other end of the ice was empty. With the game on the line, the Flyers clinging to a 3-2 lead with 1 minute, 34 seconds remaining and Pittsburgh's most lethal weapons just a few feet to the side of Ilya Bryzgalov, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette sent out a player he knew could win an important defensive zone draw. No, it was not Claude Giroux, who leads the Flyers with a 51.1 faceoff win percentage. It was not Danny Briere, who is next in line - or even rookie Sean Couturier, who has played in last-minute nail-biters.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - With a fortunate bounce and a flawless goalie, the Vancouver Canucks are heading back to Boston with the chance to hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time. Maxim Lapierre scored on a carom off the back boards with 15 minutes, 25 seconds to play; Roberto Luongo stopped 31 shots in a stirring shutout after getting pulled from his last game; and the Canucks moved to the brink of their first NHL championship with a 1-0 victory over Boston in Game 5 on Friday night.

TOP PLAYERS spend a lot of time talking about maximizing value - getting the most out of a hand. Sometimes skill and luck create an extreme example, such as this pot played by Michael Gracz at the World Poker Tour's $10,000-buy-in Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic at Las Vegas' Bellagio in 2010. With blinds at $100-$200 plus a $25 ante, accomplished pro Jared Hamby raised to $575 from the hijack seat. Action folded to Gracz, who had 5-7 of diamonds in the big blind.
