When Reggie White left the Eagles last year to sign a free-agent contract with the Green Bay Packers, the All-Pro defensive end said his departure had nothing to do with Philadelphia or Eagles fans. He also promised to return, with the intention of giving back to the community that had supported him for so many years. Yesterday, White started that process. Back in Philadelphia for the first time since he signed with the Packers, White delivered a sermon at the Greater Exodus Baptist Church in North Philadelphia, and announced the formation of his National Society of Nehemiah Unity Movement, a religious organization designed to address the problems of America's inner cities.

If Reggie White had to play 16 games a season against Tootie Robbins, he would be more likely to have his name on a missing person's report than a plaque in Canton, Ohio. The Hall of Fame-bound White has put more offensive linemen out of work than random drug-testing. But every time he faces Robbins, he vanishes from the face of the earth. Robbins regularly made White's life miserable twice a year when he was with the Phoenix Cardinals. And he made it miserable again yesterday by shutting him down in the Eagles' 27-24 loss to Green Bay. White was invisible for most of the 28-degree afternoon.

REGGIE WHITE was the closest thing to invincible that the National Football League has ever seen. There wasn't a player who could stop him or an injury that could keep him off the field. As his 198 sacks and 13 Pro Bowl appearances clearly prove, he was the best defensive lineman who ever played the game and a lead-pipe cinch Hall of Fame inductee when he becomes eligible in 2006. Sadly, White's trip to Canton will be posthumous. The 43-year-old former Eagle died yesterday in North Carolina.

From a personal perspective, the year - as well as the decade - is ending on a positive note for Reggie and Ann. The husband and wife are young professionals with a lot of potential. Reggie was just given an executive position at a local bank, and Ann, art director for a New York retailer, is looking forward to a promotion. They drive a four-year-old car and are buying a house in a well-kept middle-class neighborhood. But as much as life for them appears bright, the spirit of this holiday season has been muted by a single event.

Reggie's face is tender and full of pride as he looks at his sister, Shanel, and his brother, George. They live in a foster home, and Reggie lives in a group home and today they are at the Adoption Center. Picking up the book Pinocchio, Reggie begins to read and Shanel rests her cheek on a blue rubber ball and listens. George hangs over his shoulder and prompts him when he pauses over the pronunciation of a long word. "They have unshakable faith that they will be adopted together because they want it so much," their social worker says, "and they look forward to their visits with great joy. " George, 8, Shanel, 3, and Reggie, 10, came into foster care in 1990, with abuse, deprivation and neglect in their background.

After Pepper was all done with her tricks and had finished mugging for the camera, she was pooped. So this little piggy went to nap, tucked into a tiny bed by "Mom," aka Becky DiNolfi - a bed complete with sheets, shams and a comforter. "Go night-night now," DiNolfi cooed to the snorting 50-pound mass of black-bristled potbellied pig. "Pepper, go night-night. It's time for sleepies. " Pepper promptly went night-night, while her older sister, Reggie, opted to snooze on DiNolfi's lap in the living room.

Buddy Ryan's acerbic style has been hard to swallow for many Eagles, but yesterday the new coach received a dose of his own medicine. In a bristling response to comments made by Ryan last week, the agent for veteran linebacker Reggie Wilkes charged that the coach had acted in a "malicious" and "dumb" manner and had tried to "steal the spotlight" from other members of the organization during the team's minicamp in Tampa, Fla., last week....

NEW YORK - Perhaps not since Cheltenham High's Reggie Jackson heard his name chanted by Yankees fans has a Gotham crowd yelled the name "Reggie" over and over again. But former 76er Reggie Evans got that treatment Tuesday night at the Barclays Center as the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets handled the Sixers, 104-83. A Sixers forward from 2007 to '09, Evans pulled down 24 rebounds and scored 17 points to help the Nets to an easy victory in a game they led for all but 18 seconds of the first quarter.

Former Yankees great Reggie Jackson is selling the jersey he wore when he hit three home runs against the Dodgers in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, earning him the nickname "Mr. October. " Jackson told Bloomberg Radio earlier this week that he would use the proceeds to make significant donations to family members, as well as his Mr. October Foundation for Kids. With New York up three games to two, Jackson homered on three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers in the 8-4 win at Yankee Stadium.

Reggie the best A nice remembrance of the greatest Eagle of all. For those too young or not around during the reign of Reggie: It's not all hype to build up the image. Everything stated here is just a small glimpse of this great player. . . . My still-favorite memory was the 11 sack destruction of Troy Aikman in Dallas by that great Eagles D. It was Al Davis who famously said, "The quarterback must go down. And he must go down hard. " That game is what he meant! DelawareRiverRat Philly.com/Sports   Thanks for the article celebrating not only a great player, but a truly wonderful human being as well.

REGGIE JACKSON, as far back as his days at Cheltenham High School has had an ego the size of his boyhood 19027 ZIP code. Sometimes when a person of such conceit says something that others deem offensive and stupid, the blabbermouth should be just told to shut up and go home.   Jackson, in a recent Sports Illustrated interview, said what some folks deemed as disparaging remarks aimed at Alex Rodriguez, Gary Carter, Kirby Puckett, Jim Rice, Phil Niekro, Bert Blyleven and Don Sutton.

NEW YORK - The New York Yankees have told Mr. October to stay away this summer.

The Hall of Famer will lay low for several weeks, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because there was no formal announcement.

The latest flare-up in which a Hall of Famer called out a possible future Hall of Famer over performance-enhancing drugs involves a couple of guys in pinstripes. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, former Yankees great Reggie Jackson called Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez's numbers tainted and hinted that the slugger does not belong in the Hall. "I think there are real questions about his numbers," Jackson said. "As much as I like him, what he admitted about his usage does cloud some of his records.

BEFORE cellphones, before the Internet, it was on a Thursday evening exactly 20 years ago when the phone hanging on the kitchen wall began to ring. It was the office. Jerome Brown was dead. You do this job long enough and you become numb to stuff. The news is bad, yes, but an impending deadline becomes the most powerful anesthetic. You gather your thoughts for a few minutes, if you have a few minutes, and then you start typing. There isn't any other way. That night was one of the hardest, though.

EVEN WHILE HOBBLED by severe kidney disease, which required weekly dialysis treatments, Reggie Schell was out on Cecil B. Moore Avenue passing out leaflets or holding up signs, relentless in his pursuit of justice for black people. The former leader of the Black Panther Party in Philadelphia, Reggie was never deterred from working for the cause of equality for black people, the mission that had consumed him since the '60s - driving him to join demonstrations, work to get out the black vote and to get involved in other efforts to improve the community and the lives of his people.

Love them or hate them, the Eagles' draft picks on the defensive line usually have been memorable. They have been stars who set standards of Eagles excellence. They have been colorful. They have been busts of historic proportions. They have been hated and loved and have died tragically early. They are rarely boring. Start at the top, with Reggie White, who was taken in the 1984 supplemental draft and became one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history. He made seven Pro Bowls with the Eagles and six with the Green Bay Packers after leaving as perhaps the most sought-after free agent in NFL history.
