NOW THAT Mr. Bush has secured a devout conservative as chief justice and nominated the largely unknown Harriet Miers, the loyal GOP majority can sit back and watch the magic. There will be magic - it has been over 50 years in the works, but the minority of ideologues still smarting from the injustices of the New Deal have finally gotten what they want. The question that remains is whether the rest of the Americans who voted for this conservative "revolution" are ready for what they apparently voted for. Chief Justice Roberts kept his views largely hidden from view, especially concerning the issue that the average socially conservative voter holds dear - abortion.

Los Angeles Lakers general manager Jerry West planned to meet today with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's attorney to continue negotiations for a new two-year contract, The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday. The newspaper said that Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's oldest player at age 40, might be considering signing for another two seasons despite his talk of retirement following the 1987-88 season. The Times, quoting sources with the team, said the Lakers were attempting to negotiate a deferred compensation deal with Abdul-Jabbar that could run across some roadblocks since NBA rules stipulate that teams only can defer 30 percent of a player's contract.

Union defender Sheanon Williams was among the most improved players in Major League Soccer last season.

Chad Johnson got a minimum one-year contract extension yesterday as part of a reworked contract that substantially increases his pay and could keep him with the Cincinnati Bengals through 2011.

Cam Neely and the Boston Bruins shook hands on a new deal, but not before Red Sox doctor/part owner Arthur Pappas jumped in with his rubber hammer, tongue depresser and X-ray machines to help finalize the deal. Neely signed a two-year contract with the Bruins yesterday that provides an automatic extension for a third year if his oft-injured knee holds up. He could earn upward of $8 million over the three years. Neely, 30, has spent 10 of his 13 NHL seasons in Boston. The star right winger said he hopes to stay with the Bruins for the rest of his career, which was nearly cut short by a series of leg injuries in the last few seasons.

Mike Strahan, the New York Giants' All-Pro defensive end, got the contract extension he wanted. Edgerrin James, Lamar King and L.J. Shelton, three of the NFL's unsigned first-round draft choices, continued to maneuver. Strahan, the defensive end whose 29 sacks the past two seasons are the most in the NFL, signed a four-year, $32 million contract yesterday that could make him the NFL's highest-paid defensive player. Only Dallas cornerback Deion Sanders will make more than Strahan, averaging $10.3 million annually.

On the first day of the 1936 Democratic National Convention, 10,000 Philadelphians gathered by lamplight near Independence Hall as the Liberty Bell tolled to mark the convention's start. "The soft ring of the ancient tocsin spanned a century and a half before those early patriots who fought and died to create the first modern Republic and 700 principal officers of city, State and Nation who last night applauded appeals to defend that Republic against foreign ideas of returning to kings and dictators," the Inquirer reported.

Update: On Monday afternoon, Cox reported to Eagles minicamp. THERE'S A good chance that by December, nobody will remember whether Fletcher Cox showed for mandatory minicamp. The team's most dominant player is going to play for the Eagles this season, probably with a new long-term contract, but possibly on the $7.799 million option year from his rookie deal, with some accompanying hard feelings. But this is not December, and Cox's presence or absence Monday at NovaCare is the biggest issue on the late-spring horizon.

WHEN A professional athlete gets a shiny, new contract with set-for-life guaranteed money and then goes out and plays like a basset hound on Xanax, the natural reaction is to think cause and effect. The natural reaction is to think that once he got the new contract, the player - consciously or unconsciously - changed. He lost the hunger and the drive that helped him excel. He became fat and happy. Which brings us to Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks. Last August, Kendricks signed a four-year, $29 million contract extension with the team.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Five teams, including his current employer, have placed Bobby LaFromboise on waivers in the last 22 months. So the lefthanded reliever has learned that six stellar Grapefruit League innings are merely that, and nothing more. But, in a spring in which the Phillies have invited two dozen relievers to camp and offered a handful of jobs, the smallest of adjustments could pay dividends. Like LaFromboise's moving his feet to the other side of the rubber to accentuate the movement on his sub-90-mph fastball.

Malcolm Jenkins is known as someone who likes to take charge, so it should come as no surprise that the Eagles safety's new five-year deal was negotiated at his urging. After completing the second year of a three-year contract, Jenkins told his agent he wanted to remain in Philadelphia beyond 2016. "If the feeling is mutual," Jenkins said, "I'd love to get something long-term. " The feeling was mutual. Jenkins, 28, agreed to a five-year deal on Monday that could keep him in Philadelphia through 2020.

The Eagles continued a commitment to locking up their young talent to long-term deals on Tuesday night when they agreed to a five-year contract with defensive end Vinny Curry that could keep him in Philadelphia through 2020. The deal will pay Curry $46.25 million with $23 million guaranteed, according to a league source. Curry was set to become a free agent next month, so this deal ensures the 27-year-old, 2012 second-round pick is off the open market. He will discuss the new deal during a news conference on Wednesday.

WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.
