A Cincinnati-bound businessman was stopped at Philadelphia International Airport and a terminal section was evacuated yesterday when officials detected what appeared to be a hand grenade inside a carry-on bag. They were wrong. Ninety minutes and a police bomb squad later, the culprit was found: An ordinary can of shaving cream. For a moment under the X-ray scanner at a security checkpoint to Terminal C, the cylinder and its plastic spout uncannily resembled an explosive, authorities said.

The Bishop Eustace softball team concedes that the road to the state Parochial A title was rough. But the Crusaders made it look, oh, so easy. Over the four tournament games, Bishop Eustace outscored its opponents, 31-1, ending with Saturday's 8-1 rout of four-time defending state champion Immaculate Heart. "This championship is very sweet," Bishop Eustace coach Mike Sacca said. "Last year, we had the revenge game against Mount Saint Dominic to win Parochial B, and that was great.

Tuesday's attempted pieing of Rupert Murdoch during his testimony to the House of Commons was an outrage. As it was meant to be. It was also a failure. The assailant, stand-up comic Jonathan May-Bowles, or "Jonnie Marbles," got more shaving cream on himself than on Murdoch. He was restrained by bystanders, including Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng, who has emerged a heroine, a stand-up woman. May-Bowles has emerged with shaving cream on his face. (He was charged Wednesday with "behavior causing harassment, alarm or distress in a public place.

DON'T LET HIM HAVE A SET OF GINSU KNIVES Ronald T. Williams' world is a dangerous place. As he tells it, the convicted three-time killer has been injured by hair conditioner, yogurt, a TV set, shaving cream and a pain reliever. But a New York City judge doesn't believe any of it. He dismissed the inmate's product-liability lawsuits and ordered Williams' computer confiscated. "If plaintiff were to be believed - and he is not - every consumer product to which he has been exposed has caused him serious bodily injury," U.S. District Judge John S. Martin Jr. wrote Monday.

Shaving cream "pies" will continue to be a staple in the Phillies' clubhouse for at least the next two seasons. Utility infielder Tomas Perez signed a two-year, $1.3 million contract yesterday. Perez is the self-appointed "pie-thrower" who shoves a paper plate full of shaving cream in the faces of unsuspecting Phillies when they are on camera after a game. The 28-year-old native of Venezuela will be paid $500,000 in 2003 and $700,000 in 2004. He received a $100,000 signing bonus.

On a blustery, bitter Friday night last fall, hate came crashing through Patrick Morrison's living room window. "I came downstairs and I felt a draft, and I saw these two things that looked like stones or rocks on the floor," Morrison recalled yesterday. "I was in a state of shock. " The window was shattered. His front door, covered with eggs. And his family, frightened. All because Morrison, who is black, had recently moved onto a block in mostly white Burholme in Northeast Philadelphia.

Rain didn't melt the wicked witches of the Main Line - or any other tricksters - this Halloween weekend. Although some localities reported less Halloween-related criminal mischief because of the weather, the pranksters were out in full force in other areas, smashing windows and hapless pumpkin faces and tossing eggs at traveling cars. The bulk of the mischief occurred late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. In Haverford Township, police found eight juveniles in the stairwell of an apartment house at Kathmere and Darby Roads about 9 p.m. Saturday, armed with six dozen eggs, a bottle of ketchup, a can of spray paint, a can of lighter fluid, bars of soap and shaving cream.

LOOKING TO drum up interest in her new music career (or not), Lisa Marie Presley is going the route of many a shapely and ambitious young woman: Playboy. But Presley isn't baring her body. She's baring her soul as the July Playboy Interview, the dumbed-down former home of statesmen and serious thinkers. And no, she never saw ex-hubby Michael Jackson in bed with a child and has no reason to believe he's a child molester. Some other Presley nuggets: On Graceland: "How many people have a family grave in the back yard?

His face and head covered in shaving cream and his first home run ball stashed safely away, Jason Heyward stood in front of his locker and beamed. "I had a blast," he said. He stole the show on Opening Day. Minutes after catching the ceremonial first pitch from Hank Aaron, Heyward hit a three-run homer in his first major league at-bat to spark the Braves to a 16-5 opening win yesterday over Carlos Zambrano and the visiting Chicago Cubs. Heyward, the rightfielder who also had a run-scoring single in the eighth, was 2-for-5 with four RBI. "It was the first of many career highlights for him," said Atlanta's Chipper Jones.

WHAT IN THE NAME of Murderers' Row have the New York Yankees done to the macho madness of the walkoff homer celebration? When did the Bronx Bombers turn into the Ballet Russe? How can the pinstriped paragons of power gender-bend a ritual thumping of the game-winning hero at home plate? Transform him into a blushing bride, his teammates into box-out bridesmaids? This is the team Charlie Manuel wants to meet in the World Series? Said so before the season started, which is like spitting into the wind or tugging on Superman's cape.

The hairier things get for the Flyers during the NHL playoffs, the closer they will be to winning the Stanley Cup. The most grueling tournament in professional sports begins tonight and the success of the 16 teams involved can be measured by the length of the whiskers on the skaters' faces. Many players go unshaven until they are eliminated. "I started [growing a beard] in New York, so it's almost a week now," Flyers winger Simon Gagne said yesterday as he scratched the growth on his neck and prepared for tonight's game against Pittsburgh.

A Coatesville woman raising money and supplies for Hurricane Katrina victims was arrested yesterday and charged with an unrelated fraud. Police said Rachel A. Ortega, 34, who told the West Chester Daily Local News in a story on Sunday that she planned to shelter 40 evacuees from the Gulf Coast at her Downingtown gym, defrauded the Downingtown Holiday Committee of $500 in April. "We felt very concerned that any monies given to house the evacuees would not reach the evacuees" because Ortega probably would not be available to run the program, Downingtown Police Lt. Steven Plaugher said.

Andrew Selke prefers Aveda body wash, Bulgari soap, and Paul Mitchell shampoo. And he's not averse to a paraffin hand dip once in a while. But this former housepainter doesn't consider himself a metrosexual. "I've had people tell me that my hands felt like a baby's," said Selke, 38, who now works as a concierge at a Center City five-star hotel. "And I'm a guy who's spent some time doing manual labor. " Inspired by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and covetous of their girlfriends' high-end moisturizers and shampoos, regular Joes like Selke are breaking out of the Barbasol rut as never before, and they're setting sales of men's skin-care products on fire.

The Phillies stormed out of the dugout and charged toward Tomas Perez. Finally, a little payback. They quickly mauled Perez and threw several congratulatory punches to his body before they tossed him around and dragged him into short right field for even more tough love. Perez walked away with his jersey unbuttoned and his limbs still intact. He didn't seem to mind. "I had to take it for the team," said Perez, who hit a single to left-center field in the 11th inning to drive in the winning run in a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Expos.
