Joseph Deal loved adventure. Richard Poch seemingly spent nearly half of his life in or around a plane. On Sunday, the men, both certified pilots, boarded a small, single-engine craft at the Brandywine Airport in Chester County as part of a routine flight review conducted every two years to test a pilot's skills. They traveled not even half a mile before their plane abruptly crashed. "Joe was a kind soul and a wonderful man," Deal's family said in a statement Wednesday, after police publicly identified the men as the pair killed in the early-afternoon crash.

THE SOUL reworked its roster and, for one game at least, also changed its luck. Ryan McDaniel made an acrobatic touchdown catch with 12 seconds left as the new-look Soul opened the season with a 70-63 win over host Orlando. A year ago, the Soul lost a half-dozen games in the closing seconds and stumbled to a 9-9 record. The team responded by turning over the lineup with 14 new players on the 25-man roster. McDaniel, one of the holdovers from a year ago, had 10 catches for 150 yards and three touchdowns.

When the Soul were eliminated in the first round of the 2014 Arena Football League playoffs, the loss solidified the front office's belief that it was time for change. In the two previous seasons, the Soul had reached the ArenaBowl but failed to win the title. Last year, they were an aging, 9-9 team, one headed in a direction no one liked. So coach Clint Dolezel and his staff embarked upon a massive retooling effort, the goal being to make the Soul younger, more athletic, and once again a legitimate ArenaBowl contender.

JOANNE AND Nicole DeGuio have scoured Needle Park in Kensington. They've knocked on pimps' doors and handed out condoms to prostitutes, all in the hopes of finding whatever information they can about their missing loved one, Amanda. Amanda DeGuio, 25, is Joanne's daughter, Nicole's little sister and a heroin addict. She was last seen at her Drexel Hill home in June. Amanda's addiction kept her away from home before, but she'd always call and check in on her mother, her sister and her two young daughters, ages 3 and 5. But that hasn't happened this time.

IN THE REALM of arena football, what the Soul did this offseason was comparable to the Eagles' trading LeSean McCoy. Following a mediocre season and first-round playoff loss, the Soul traded Derrick Ross, easily the best fullback in franchise history and largely considered to be the best the AFL has ever known. Traditional running backs are called fullbacks in the arena league. In return, the Soul received a stud linebacker - sound familiar, Eagles fans? - in this case Beau Bell, who was first-team all-AFL for Los Angeles last year.

  LYNNE ABRAHAM'S campaign trumpeted a very favorable internal poll yesterday showing the ex-district attorney leading the mayor's race by 16 points. A lot of that comes from Abraham's unparalleled name recognition among the field of six vying for Room 215. Early polls ahead of heavy TV advertising don't measure much more than that. Mayor Nutter around this time eight years ago was barely a blip on the chart. Still, it's better to be ahead than to be behind. Rival Doug Oliver , who has less name recognition than anyone, parodied the Abraham poll by releasing a (fake)

WIDE RECEIVER Marques Colston will be entering his 10th year with the Saints. He is in the red zone of his football life and he's at peace that his playing days are numbered. "Me being on the back end of my career, I know the transition [is inevitable]," said Colston, who joined the ownership group of the Soul this offseason. "They're going to show me the door sooner rather than later. " Colston, 31, had been the owner of a minor league arena football team that played in Harrisburg the last 3 years.

While the Eagles look for a wide receiver to replace Jeremy Maclin, the Soul have found one. Marques Colston, the New Orleans Saints' all-time leader in four receiving categories, won't be playing for the Soul anytime soon. Instead, the 10-year veteran, who joined the Soul as an ownership partner last fall, will be closely involved with the team. "With me being on the back end of my career, I know they are going to show me the door sooner rather than later," Colston, a seventh-round draft pick out of Hofstra, said of the Saints.
