Michael Gramlich has played golf with the same three guys at Old York Road Country Club "about 100 times," but had experienced nothing like what happened to his usual foursome during a recent round. Gramlich, 41, a sales executive from Ambler, recorded a double eagle at the 525-yard, par-5 ninth, holing out a 4-wood from about 225 yards. But the rest of the group did something almost as remarkable. "It was just funny," Gramlich said Friday. "And the funniest thing about the hole was that John said he had the hardest par he's ever had to make, getting up and down out of a bunker.

Federal authorities have in their possession a spiral notebook seized from former Pete Rose associate Mike Bertolini that is said to list wagers he placed for Rose on Cincinnati Reds games. Rose has consistently denied that he bet on any baseball games. Sources say the notebook contains lists of bets placed by Bertolini for Rose with a New York bookmaker. "The government has the notebook," said Bertolini's lawyer, Nicholas De Feis. "It's considered evidence at this time, and I'm not going to comment on what's in it. " Baseball officials hope to get custody of the notebook when the government's investigation of the baseball memorabilia industry ends.

Abbas Kiarostami's Where Is the Friend's Home? has the feverish urgency of a child's dream - one of those anxiety-ridden pipsqueak nightmares about forgetting your homework, or showing up in your second-grade classroom without any clothes. Shot in a rural Iranian village - a snaky maze of dirt alleys, white stucco houses and flapping clotheslines - this sweet little film tells the story of an 8-year-old boy's panicky peregrinations, as he attempts to return a schoolmate's mislaid notebook.

A notebook left in a West Philadelphia parking garage where a special-education student was raped Monday led police yesterday to charge a 17-year-old University City High School student in connection with the attack. The suspect, whose name was being withheld by police because of his juvenile status, was arrested late Wednesday night at his West Philadelphia home and charged with rape, indecent assault and related offenses. The victim, also 17, was described as having the intellectual capacity of a fourth grader.

Judging from the sound of pocketbooks clicking open and tissues being passed in the darkened theater the other day, a lot of people started to lose it when James Garner cried. It's not just that his character in The Notebook - the loyal companion of a woman with Alzheimer's - is so decent and true. It's also that Garner, whose laid-back persona has charmed the public since Maverick bowed on TV in 1957, is such a beloved American figure that watching him stuff his knuckles into his mouth to hold back sobs just about breaks your heart.

THE SUSPECT in the Colorado shooting rampage tried unsuccessfully to call his university psychiatrist nine minutes before he opened fire during a "Batman" movie premiere, defense attorneys revealed in court. James Holmes placed the call to an after-hours number at a hospital at the University of Colorado, Anschutz campus, where psychiatrist Lynne Fenton could be reached, defense attorney Tamara Brady said. It wasn't clear why he called Fenton, and she wasn't immediately available to talk with him. Holmes, 24, is accused of opening fire during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," killing 12 people and injuring 58 others.

A toll-free tip line set up for O.J. Simpson's defense was receiving 100 calls a minute, his attorney Robert Shapiro said yesterday. AT&T would not release the number of calls. "This is done totally outside our office. . . . This is totally O.J.'s thing," Shapiro said, adding that a message on the hotline had been changed to delete a referral to Shapiro's office for legal representation. Another Simpson attorney, LeRoy Taft, on Wednesday announced the hotline and a $500,000 reward for information leading to the "real killer or killers" of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.

The first time Wim Wenders put on a jacket by Yohji Yamamoto, a trendy Japanese designer whose clothes are marked by a dark, monastic simplicity, the feeling was profound: "The jacket reminded me of my childhood and my father," Wenders says, recalling the unwavering rightness of the fabric and cut.

To many, Saturday's cancellation of the Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball might have seemed like a tragedy on par with, say, learning that dinner at your Great Aunt Dotty's got nixed - being spared a social convention that long ago passed into the realm of obligatory or quaint. Even the name of the annual white-tie-and-tail event - a ball, for goodness' sake - stirs visions of something very 19th-century. The promenade up Broad Street from the Academy to dinner and dancing at the Bellevue seems like a spectacle captured in a steel engraving circa 1885.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jason Peters doesn't know who his new head coach will be, doesn't know who will be coaching the offensive line. But if those guys have any sense, Peters will be back for an eighth season as the Eagles' left tackle at age 34, Peters said. "I want to be here. I still got gas in the tank," said Peters, who made his eighth career Pro Bowl and his sixth as an Eagle, despite being in and out of games with injuries all season. Would Peters consider moving inside to guard, where he'd have more help and spend less time trying to pass block in space against players 10 years younger?

I DON'T THINK any reporters who cover the Eagles know Jason Peters well. It's kind of odd, given that Peters has made the Pro Bowl as an Eagle six times, as much as Donovan McNabb did, but the best left tackle in franchise history makes himself available in the locker room sporadically, and he doesn't make small talk. Over the years, Peters has been revered as an Eagles cornerstone, first for Andy Reid, then for Chip Kelly. His judgments, when offered, have been taken as gospel. Peters isn't one to try to drown the truth in a torrent of rationalizations or excuses.

THE FIRST two seasons of Chip Kelly coaching the Eagles and Bruce Arians running the Cardinals, the teams seemed pretty evenly matched, and they played that way - the Eagles winning 24-21 in 2013, after building a 24-7 lead, and the Cards winning 24-20 last year on John Brown's 75-yard touchdown catch from Carson Palmer with a minute and 21 seconds remaining in regulation. The Eagles went 10-6 both seasons. Arians' Cards were 10-6 and 11-5. Things look different this year, though, as the 11-2 Cards visit Sunday night, not having lost since an Oct. 18 visit to the Steelers.

IT WASN'T as splashy as last week, when the Eagles' special-teams scored two touchdowns at New England, one on a blocked punt and another on a punt return. But the kick and punt teams again were a critical part of an Eagles victory Sunday over the Bills. The big moment was Bryan Braman's recovery of Marcus Thigpen's punt return fumble, which gave the Eagles the ball at the Bills' 37, eventually setting up Nelson Agholor's 53-yard touchdown catch, good for a 14-7, second-quarter lead.
