There is loyalty, and then there is loyalty. When it comes to the Flyers, Ed Weinrott and Joe Sahina fall in the latter category. No, they aren't behind-the-scenes men who were part of the ownership group that spent $2 million to bring the team to Philadelphia 50 years ago. But they took a chance on the Flyers in another way. Both are among a small group of fans who have had season tickets since the Flyers played their first game at...

At the Major League Soccer draft this month, there was a lot of talk about how the expansion Philadelphia Union had sold 9,000 season tickets, and some of the conversation went like this: If those sales - sufficient to fill half the stadium - are the base for crowds of, say, 17,000 a game, then they represent a major accomplishment. If those 9,000 turn out to be most of the people who go to the games, then pro soccer is going to struggle in Philadelphia. Again. So what constitutes - and will constitute - ticket-sales success for the Union, now two months from their first game?

A New Jersey man who shot a flare across the field and into the stands at the conclusion of the Eagles-49ers game Monday night has been arrested. Police yesterday said Robert Sellers, 29, of Cable Drive, Toms River, faces a number of charges, including arson and propulsion of missiles. Meanwhile, another Eagles fan said he was assaulted by five men at the game because his friend was wearing a New York Giants jacket, said Sgt. Frank Vanore, of South Detectives. Scott Reader, 37, of Maple Shade, N.J., told KYW NewsRadio that his ankle had been shattered by the beating and that he cannot work.

RE THE Feb. 11 letter on Jon Bon Jovi and the Philadelphia Soul: What really blew our minds was that "Mr. Know-It-All" Stephen Cornell said that Jon Bon Jovi, the Philadelphia Soul arena football owner, hasn't really been a celebrity for more than a decade. We hate to inform him, but for the last 20 years, Bon Jovi has been a part of the music, movie and TV worlds. He and his band have had sold out tours and sold many records. Through all this, Jon has remained a wonderful family man and father.

GATHER 'ROUND, kids, and let me tell you a story about what used to be called professional football. Once upon a time, a team called the Frankford Yellow Jackets became the Philadelphia Eagles. I'd go to the games with your great-great-grandfather and great-grandfather. We had season tickets for 30 years. But the owners got greedy. They kept raising the ticket price until the average parents couldn't afford to take their kids to the games. Paying obscene salaries, they put more and more mediocre players on the field.

Add another ticket option for Phillies fans: The Three Game Pack. Tickets for individual games don't go on sale till Feb. 16, but this morning the club started selling three-ticket sets that include one of 13 desirable dates. Fans then have to select two other games, almost all of them scheduled for weeknights. A Summer Saturday Pack, for example, could include one of the following: the June 2 game against Miami, June 23 against Tampa Bay, July 7 against Atlanta, July 21 against Atlanta, Aug. 4 against Arizona, or Aug. 11 against St. Louis.

HISTORY MIGHT show that Andy Reid's Eagles hit rock bottom at 2:15 p.m. Thanksgiving Eve, when Jeff Maile, of Lansdale, went on Craigslist and offered a "great trade" for fans who couldn't stand to watch the team take the field again: His leftover Halloween candy in exchange for tickets to the Monday night game against the Carolina Panthers. "I have 23 Snickers bars (fun size), 5 Snickers Almond bars (fun size), and an unopened bag of Charms Blow Pops (assorted flavors)," wrote Maile, 44, who runs a company that does Internet marketing.

The Phillies are a bust on the field, but they are showing signs of life in another area: selling tickets. The last-place team listed three games in May on the e-commerce site Groupon with lower-than-normal prices. The team would not disclose how many tickets it sold, but did say that 70 percent were bought by new customers, who are now in the Phillies database. The team has also used "variable" pricing for several years based on the game's importance. With the prices set before the season, the same seat costs more if the game is against a marquee team or on a prime weekend than it would for a mid-week game against a lesser opponent.

ALLENTOWN - Blue-and-black boa around his neck and plastic pigskin hat covering his eyes, Mike Hollenbach leaned over the 5-yard line. "Let's hit these guys hard today," Hollenbach bellowed as Soul players warmed up in front of him. "We're going to play hard today. " Walking the sideline, Ron Jaworski laughed as he shook Hollenbach's hand. "Keep the noise down, my brother," joked Jaworski, the former Eagles quarterback and Soul owner. Hollenbach knows the Soul's owners, players, and coaches.

MONTREAL - Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere has a special bond with his grandfather, Denis Brodeur, a Montreal native who moved to Florida when he was younger. It was his grandfather who bought him his first pair of skates when he was 3 years old, coached one of his youth teams, and used to bring him to the Florida Panthers games with his season tickets. So you could understand why "Ghost" felt a little nostalgic Friday to play his first NHL game in the city where his grandfather grew up. "I know he'll be watching [on TV]

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married three years. It has been rocky since year two. She's a great mother to our kids, especially the one who is medically challenged. We have broken up twice so far, and are now back together. However, because of my job, we live in different states. Bottom line: I'm no longer sure this is the right relationship for me. She goes to school full time while I work a ton of overtime to support two households. We hardly see or spend time with each other.

Sunday's win over the Pats felt more than awesome. But aside from that stray pre-Christmas miracle, you might think the Eagles Pep Band's mission is difficult right about now. You might assume this sad 5-7 football season has zapped the zest from the foursome tasked with leading thousands of tailgaters in rousing pregame renditions of "Fly, Eagles, Fly. " Can't be easy getting a disappointed fanbase to join in a jubilant fight-song sing-along ....

ALLENTOWN - It appears Flyers fans have bought into general manager Ron Hextall's rebuilding plans. The Flyers' season-ticket base remains stable even though the team is coming off a season in which it missed the playoffs for the second time in three years - and Hextall was unable to make any major offseason moves because of limited cap space. The Flyers, their farm system greatly improved under Hextall, have sold 16,000 tickets per game, a slight drop of about 500 tickets per game from the previous year.

"This is one of the most-connected facilities in the NFL," if use of smartphones and iPads at Eagles games is any sign, says Charles W. Berger , pointing to wireless switches embedded under the stands at Lincoln Financial Field. Berger, a Willow Grove native, is chief executive officer of Extreme Networks , a San Jose, Calif., company with yearly sales of $600 million. It built the free WiFi system at the stadium last season, with project manager PCM Inc. "They put in 30 miles of cable in 90 days, building a bridge to our fans," said Anne Gordon , the Eagles vice president who oversees digital media.

LANGHORNE Military deployment is hard on the soldiers who serve around the world and on the families back home who worry about them. So, this year, the Phillies made a big deal for Upper Darby native Joe Andreacchio and his girlfriend, Corrie Gorman. On Friday morning, three days after Andreacchio, 29, a sergeant with the 333d Engineering Company, Army Reserve, out of Reading, returned from a nine-month tour of Afghanistan, the Phillies paid him a special visit. As he chowed down on a breakfast of bagels and coffee at the house of Gorman's parents in Langhorne, Andreacchio was shocked to see a crowd gathering in the front yard.
