The play is not the most intriguing or intricate in the Eagles' thick, green offensive notebook, but it has worked all three times: Keith Byars takes a pitchout from Randall Cunningham and lofts a touchdown pass over a baffled defense. Why does this trick play keep working? Does the defense think Byars will run the ball? Is it some kind of misdirection play? Is it the gloves? Byars, the nominal running back who probably would have made the Pro Bowl if there were a most-versatile category, has not run much this season - only 29 times in 14 games.

Diverting Trick or Treat lives up to its name by being a movie that both metalheads and the membership of the Parents Music Resource Center can thrash to. No, it's not a splatter movie in the harrowing tradition of Halloween. As directed by Charles Martin Smith (the American Graffiti nerd turned environmentalist in Never Cry Wolf), Trick or Treat is a teen-music thriller under the influence of Stephen King. At its best, this cautionary tale of a heavy-metal fan haunted by his satanic idol recalls Carrie and Christine.

Ever the sucker, I took him to Party City just as other kids were hitting the streets to troll for candy. Though the shelves were plucked clean by the time we got there, my son managed to find the last Spider-Man shirt and hat. Then we set out for his real Halloween mission - getting stuffed.

On the second-half kickoff, North Penn called a trick play against Pennsbury that looked awfully similar to the "Music City Miracle" that the Tennessee Titans used to beat the Buffalo Bills in an AFC playoff game 15 years ago.

That set up a 14-yard touchdown run by Nick Isabella that proved critical in the Knights' 27-20 road triumph Friday night at Falcon Field. "That's the first time we used it all year," said Henley, a speedy sophomore receiver and free safety.
