Summer vacation did not change coach Doug Pederson's plans at quarterback. Sam Bradford is still atop the depth chart, and Carson Wentz is still expected to be inactive for the season opener and potentially through the season. Both quarterbacks were on the field Monday for the Eagles' first day of training camp practice, and it started a 48-day march to prepare Bradford for the season opener while developing Wentz as the future franchise quarterback. "Going into September 11th, you know, Sam's the guy," Pederson said.

Sam Bradford finally enjoyed a healthy summer. He was not sequestered in a training room rehabilitating a torn knee, like he did the previous two summers. An elusive break in his schedule allowed Bradford to spend time with teammates, focus on building the rest of his body - and even get married. Bradford begins his second training camp with the Eagles on Monday as the unequivocal starting quarterback, but with his career in Philadelphia likely expiring after this season. Yet all the attention devoted to Bradford's employment has overshadowed what's otherwise been the dominant story line of Bradford's career: His health.

A REFEREE'S whistle blew once, twice, then three times. Players jutting out their chests and grimacing were separated by teammates. Omar Strong, the short, spirited guard for City of Gods, looked over at his team's bench as he decompressed. Phil Goss stood at the bench, staring toward Strong with a preternatural calm, his hands open and pushing towards the Gallagher Center hardwood. Calm down. City of Gods, Goss' team in The Basketball Tournament, had a 13-point lead over Team F.O.E.

Great summer sci-fi/horror Many odd things happen in Netflix's new offering Stranger Things , as the title would suggest. But something eerie might happen to you as you watch the 1980s sci-fi/horror pastiche: You'll turn on the first episode and mysteriously find yourself sitting in the same spot on your couch eight episodes later, never having moved an inch. It's made to be binged, not just because each episode ends with a chilling cliff-hanger, but because it's like watching an extended Spielberg movie, and what's summer without a little Steven?

OK, WE'RE DEEP into summer fun, and you probably abandoned your 2016 exercise and nutrition resolutions months ago, right? If that's the case, here's a midyear resolution refresher to get your routine back on track. First of all, go easy on yourself! Without a doubt, it is difficult to maintain perfect discipline. We're only human, and being human means we're going to fail sometimes. I say, no problem - in fact, I encourage you to become a cheater. That's right, I said it. Forget the guilt trip and build cheating into your routine.

DEAR ABBY: With summer here, many families will do at least some traveling, which involves spending significant amounts of time in the family car or truck. I'd like to remind your readers that it is now illegal in many states to leave a child, a disabled person or a pet unattended in a vehicle for ANY length of time. The reason is that temperatures inside a vehicle - especially with the windows rolled up - can rise to dangerous, even deadly, levels very quickly. Tests by the National Weather Service have shown that when it's 80 degrees Fahrenheit outside, the interior of a vehicle with the windows rolled up, or just cracked open, can reach 123 degrees within 60 minutes!

IT HAS BEEN a long, quiet summer. During the school year, a city in the midst of a historic run of athletic ineptitude at least gives you something to watch. Coaches get fired, general managers get replaced, players explode. But at least there's some noise. In the summer, the sound the city makes is one of silence. You walk into a bar and see TNT reruns playing on the television. Only when you check the internet do you remember there is a baseball game being played. With this in mind, let's take a moment to thank any or all of the deities or karmic energies in which we believe.

LAS VEGAS – The 76ers capped their NBA Summer League play with a win, defeating the Miami Heat, 74-66, Friday night in a consolation game at the Thomas & Mack Center. "I just wanted to finish with a win," said Simmons, the first overall pick in the last month's NBA draft. "So I came out here aggressive and I tried to take over the game. " Ben Simmons finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and six turnovers after missing the past two games to rest. The 6-foot-10, 243-pound point forward once again dazzled the crowd with his playmaking ability.

LAS VEGAS - The NBA Summer League is winding down, and the 76ers will soon go their separate ways. So far, it appears as if Ben Simmons is as talented as advertized. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, while not a finished product, has so far justified being the 24th overall pick in last month's NBA draft. T.J. McConnell has shown why the Sixers hold him in such high regard, but Nik Stauskas once again has struggled to display the consistent shooting touch the Sixers thought they were acquiring in a trade with the Sacramento Kings last summer.

MARGATE, N.J. - Lobster, challah, hollah! Ten things I learned at the Margate Community Farmers Market: 1. There's lobster in those waters off Atlantic City. Not only are people freaking out over the Caribbean-blue waters at the Jersey Shore this summer (due to drought conditions resulting in less storm water runoff plus a whole lot of phytoplankton), but there are lobsters! In fact, fisherman Patrick Irwin, 42, says he catches the lobsters that many people are eating in New York City and Philadelphia restaurants 12 miles off Atlantic City's Delta Basin on Maryland Avenue.
