On any given day during the last several seasons you might have found five or six Eagles sprawled out in their locker stalls catching some midday zzzzs. In most cases, the players would build themselves a makeshift bed with pillow, their heads covered with a shirt or some other piece of clothing, their outstretched legs obstructing passage through the narrow lockerroom at the NovaCare Complex. There were other places to sleep - the lounge, the trainer's room - and, it seemed, plenty of opportunities for exhausted players to nap under Andy Reid.

It's always been known that President Reagan was in touch with stars, but up until now many Americans had thought that just meant poolside chats with Charlton Heston and Old Blue Eyes. Now it turns out the President, via Nancy Reagan's astrologer, was in touch with the real stars. This information could help explain a lot. Future historians need not wonder why Mr. Reagan once had himself sworn in as California's governor at midnight. It wasn't because he was having trouble sleeping, it wasn't because he was shooting for the evening news in Tokyo.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not have time to read books and magazine stories about what's going on in the world today. But you'll experience it firsthand. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stick around the warm people. Avoid extremists regardless of which extreme they are on. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you give in at the first sign of fatigue, backing off becomes a tendency. Keep going so that you will know what you are capable of. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You live and love according to a set of principles.

JEREMY RENNER is an overnight sensation 20 years in the making. His movie career began in 1995 with a role in "National Lampoon's Senior Trip" and he moved between movies and TV shows (guest spots on "CSI," "Angel," "House") over the next dozen years. A starring role as the creepy, cannibalistic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the 2002 movie "Dahmer" didn't make him a household name nor did his own short-lived network TV series "The Unusuals. " But then came his Academy Award-nominated performance in "The Hurt Locker," and BANG!

The Dallas Stars knew they had to contain St. Louis' Pierre Turgeon, Keith Tkachuk and Scott Young. But Marty Reasoner? Reasoner, who played nearly as many games this season in the minors as he did the NHL, set up the Blues' first goal and scored the next two as visiting St. Louis beat the Stars, 4-2, last night in the opener of the second-round series. "I don't think Dallas was too worried about me," said Reasoner, who played in only one of six games in the first round.

The Dallas Stars are rounding into playoff form and they sent that message to the rest of the league with a 5-1 victory over visiting Ottawa yesterday. "It's a statement that we're not as bad as everyone thinks," Stars captain Derian Hatcher said. The Stars lead the Pacific Division, but have struggled to perform at the level that carried the team to the Stanley Cup finals the last two seasons. The Stars are 5-2-1 in their last eight games. "We're trying to send a message to ourselves that we're a good team that can compete against anybody and everybody," Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said.
