Welcome to the No-Lose Season for Jeffrey Lurie, even though some would portray 2012 as the most perilous for the Eagles' owner in the recent history of the organization. After watching the team fail to win a playoff game for three straight seasons, after betting the limit on quarterback Michael Vick, and after putting the head coach on notice that this is truly a make-or-break situation in his tenure here, Lurie certainly will be watched closely. The television cameras will peer into the luxury suites to catalog every cheer and every grimace.

Kemp Carr believes Winslow Township can be one of the best football programs in South Jersey. "It's time to wake the sleeping giant," said Carr, who has been hired as Winslow Township's new coach. Carr turned Penns Grove into a South Jersey small-school power during 10 seasons as the Red Devils' head coach. His 2012 team went 12-0, won the South Jersey Group 1 title and set a state record for points with 621 (a per-game average of 51.7). Carr hopes to create the same kind of success at Winslow Township, which is a Group 3 program in football.

IF THERE IS one thing that won't surprise Union head coach Jim Curtin and technical director/assistant coach Chris Albright, it will be the high expectations placed on them by the team's fan base. Not too long ago, Curtin and Albright were on the other side of the fence, demanding commitments of excellence from the management of the Eagles, Flyers, Phillies and Sixers. Curtin is from Oreland and in 2001 became the first Villanova player taken in the Major League Soccer draft, by the Chicago Fire.

NEWARK, N.J. - Superstar forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the New Jersey Devils and the sports world Thursday, retiring from the NHL to return to his native Russia. In leaving, the 30-year-old Kovalchuk walked from $77 million left on the 15-year contract that he signed with New Jersey in 2010, including guaranteed annual salaries of at least $11 million over the next four seasons. The Devils announced the stunning news Thursday afternoon, saying that the 30-year-old Kovalchuk had alerted general manager and president Lou Lamoriello earlier this year that he wanted to return home with his family after 11 seasons in the NHL. "Gentlemen, this wasn't a decision made by the New Jersey Devils," a testy Lamoriello said at the end of a conference call held less than an hour after the retirement was announced.

A LITTLE bit of down time will come now for some in the 76ers' organization, as many players take a break after summer-league preparation and games, and coaches refresh their batteries with vacations. There will be workout sessions and pickup games at PCOM with various players, but for the most part there is some calm before the storm that is training camp. Of course, there is the impending surgery on Joel Embiid's right foot, which should be any day. Sources have confirmed to the Daily News that the navicular bone in his right foot was rebroken . There is the continued rehabilitation of Tony Wroten's surgically repaired partially torn right ACL, an injury similar to one he suffered playing high school football in 2009.

At Circle M Farms in Salem, grower Santo Maccherone has trouble containing his enthusiasm these days. His peach trees - covering more than 100 acres - are absolutely laden with fruit. "The peaches are happy, I'm happy, and the people eating them are happy," he said with a laugh. A "consistently cold winter," cool bloom season, and plentiful rain have created the right conditions for a strong crop, said Maccherone, president of the New Jersey Peach Promotion Council, a nonprofit organization of growers, shippers, wholesalers, and associated industries.

One of the few benefits for a baseball organization with a long history of failure that has been interrupted only occasionally by brief fits of competence is that it is very difficult to set team records for futility. God bless the Phillies, though. They're taking a run at it. Since the team began playing, a stretch of a mere 133 years, the Phils have won two lonely championships and had only 58 winning seasons. That's a lot of losing. They lost at least 100 games 14 times, including 1941, when they set the franchise mark of 111 losses with a team that had Cy Blanton and Si Johnson in the starting rotation and nothing but sighs coming from the stands.

Only 7 percent of men are high-fashion customers. That means only a sliver would even think about donning one of the ankle-length trouser and blazer suit combos that Allentown-bred designer Thom Browne debuted Tuesday on New York Fashion Week's spring 2016 runways. And it's likely that even fewer guys would consider slipping into an all-white culotte outfit that Public School designers Dao Yi-Chow and Maxwell Osborne are forecasting as one of next summer's must-have guy trends.

LAS VEGAS - It was an obvious question, one that most 76ers fans would like to hear answered: How does Joel Embiid's being sidelined change Jahlil Okafor's role heading into the season? "It doesn't," Okafor said. "My role is to dominate. I'm one of the centerpieces of this team. So my role is the same. " Okafor was held out of the team's NBA Summer League game against the Boston Celtics Sunday at the Thomas & Mack Center so he could rest. He had better cherish his time off. The role for the third overall pick in the NBA draft will be greater than most fans envisioned days ago. Embiid, selected third in last summer's draft, will have a second surgery on his right foot and is expected to miss all of next season, the team announced Saturday night after The Inquirer reported the news earlier in the day. One source said the franchise is concerned that this setback is career-threatening.

LAS VEGAS - Suddenly, the 76ers find themselves with more questions in their frontcourt. Joel Embiid, selected third in last summer's draft, will have a second surgery on his right foot and will miss all of next season, the team announced Saturday night after an Inquirer report earlier in the day. Sources said the team will decide whether the surgery will take place in North Carolina or at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. "A collective decision has been made that the best approach to promote full healing would be to proceed with a bone graft of the fracture site," general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement.

If it were anyone else taking on the winds, rain, and lightning of Thursday night for an outdoors show, the first of the summer season at Dell Music Center, it would have been a washout. This, however, was Patti LaBelle, Philadelphia's first lady of R&B, who is still going strong at 71, 52 years into her career. The opening act was supposed to be local trombonist Jeff Bradshaw's large band, featuring Najee and Kenny Lattimore, but they did not play. LaBelle came on early at 9:45 p.m. and proceeded to warm the chilly audience with a piercing, nuanced voice that raged and seduced.

When the Philadelphia Union concludes its Major League Soccer season in October, it's likely to be the team's last game in Chester's PPL Park. Don't fret, fans. The venue doesn't change. Only the name of the stadium. PPL Corp., the Allentown energy company best known for its electric utility, last month formally spun off its competitive power-generation business into a new company called Talen Energy. The new company, also based in Allentown, includes PPL's retail energy business, which marketed power under the brand name PPL Energy Plus.

Four days after accepting the Phillies' interim managerial position upon Ryne Sandberg's abrupt resignation, Pete Mackanin accepted a bigger role from the front office on Tuesday. Mackanin, 63, will serve as the team's interim manager for the rest of this season. It's the third time he has performed such a role: He did so in 2005 for the Pittsburgh Pirates when Lloyd McClendon was fired and in 2007 for the Cincinnati Reds when Jerry Narron was let go. "I think it's got to be a record: three different teams having this title, interim manager.
