ACCIDENTS happen, but when it's a $30,000 mistake — it's perfect High and Inside fodder. Such is the case after the father of a current player on Alabama's football team tripped on the rug that displayed the Crimson Tide's reward for winning January's BCS National Championship. The coveted crystal football was jarred off its stand and shattered following Alabama's annual A-Day game on Saturday, according to a university spokesperson. The football- ­shaped trophy, awarded by the American Football Coaches Association, is made of Waterford Crystal and valued at $30,000.

For years, the Lower Merion High School athletic department has been an unofficial custodian of the district's hallmarks in student achievement, stockpiling trophy after trophy and plaque after plaque in the glass cases lining the halls outside the boys' gym. But the task has gotten, well, a bit burdensome, especially for the overflowing display cases. So department and school district officials have decided to offer some of the awards to whoever wants them. "The bulk of the awards are individual awards that were either never presented to people or the people didn't take them," athletic director Thomas D. McGovern said Tuesday in explaining what was going to be given away.

The Ryan Howard off-season awards tour is all but complete - as is the Phillies first baseman's haul from his MVP season. Last night, Howard rounded out his collection of hardware in style, officially receiving the Kenesaw Mountain Landis National League Most Valuable Player trophy, the award voted to him by the Baseball Writers Association of America after his breakout 58-home run, 149-RBI campaign in 2006. Surrounded by family, manager Charlie Manuel and a large contingent of Phillies front-office personnel, Howard was presented the plaque at the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America's 84th annual dinner by no less than Tony Gwynn, an outfielder who is scheduled for induction into the Hall of Fame this summer.

I'M GRATEFUL to Steve Rosenberg. He denied my son a trophy. Nine-year-old Michael Jr. is a terrific boy. And he plays sports with a pretty high level of concentration and effort. But when it comes to his most recent baseball season, his team's efforts weren't worthy of recognition. He had a terrific coach in a volunteer named Joe Katz. Most guys coach because they have a son on the team. Katz did it because he loves the game and wanted to teach the fundamentals. And every week his team got better.

Wayne Gretzky accepted a trophy commemorating his third NHL All-Star MVP award, then went out and looked the part. Gretzky reached another goal-scoring milestone and set up Adam Graves for a pair of first-period scores last night as the New York Rangers beat the visiting Vancouver Canucks, 8-4. Gretzky scored his 1,071st goal as a pro, tying him with Gordie Howe for total career goals combining regular season and playoffs in the NHL and...

THIRTY-FIVE YEARS seems like a long time, doesn't it? Since the Flyers last won a Stanley Cup in 1975, the famed trophy has been awarded 33 times to 13 franchises in 12 cities. (There was no champion in 2005, because of the lockout.) There have been 1,405 names engraved on the Cup since '75, according to legendsofhockey.net, not counting the name of Bazil Pocklington, who had his name crossed out. Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington had his father's name included when he submitted the list to the NHL in 1984.

A prized trophy won by Seabiscuit, one of thoroughbred racing's greatest champions, has been recovered after turning up on an Internet auction site 50 years after it was stolen in a California burglary. The original thieves remain unknown, and FBI officials said it appeared no one would be charged with a crime. Efforts to find the trophy, one of several awarded to Seabiscuit during an amazing turnaround career, began last year and triggered an FBI investigation that stretched from New York to California.

Larchmont might have had only one individual winner Thursday at the South Jersey 1-meter diving championships, but it still got the trophy it was after: the one that goes to the team champion. Host Larchmont scored 45.5 points at the meet, just ahead of second-place Deer Brook (43.5) and third-place Barclay Farms (42). Larchmont's sole winner was Daniel Curcio, who won the 9-and-under boys' novice division with a 91.50. Four Larchmont divers finished second: Josh Bryan in the boys' 9-and-under Junior Olympic division, Seth Korona in the boys' 16-18 novice division, J.T. Mulholland in the boys' 12-13 Junior Olympic division, and Jen Stearly in the girls' 14-15 Junior Olympic division.

Three weeks ago, Leonard Fournette had the Heisman Trophy in his grasp. The Louisiana State sophomore was a lock to win college football's most prestigious award, as much a certainty as Donald Trump saying something outrageous at his next campaign stop. But then, the season continued. After a first half that saw him rush for more than 200 yards in three consecutive games, Fournette has been unable to find the holes. He gained just 31 yards on 19 carries in the marquee Nov. 7 matchup against Alabama - a 30-14 loss - and managed 91 yards in last week's loss to Arkansas.

With a paragraph-long dispatch to Instagram on Sunday, Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison launched the latest salvo in the never-ending debate better known to laypeople as the Sociology of What's Wrong With Kids Today. The matter at hand? Two slick trophies awarded to Harrison's 6- and 8-year-old sons, just for participating. "I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned," he captioned in a photo of the trophies before returning them to the track club whence they'd come.

MY SINCERE wish is for Ivan Provorov to blossom into a bona fide NHL star, so successful that he someday wins the trophy awarded by the NHL each season to its most valuable Russian player. I like the Flyers' top pick, like his heady game and grit he displays for an 18-year-old. I like the poise with which he already conducts himself on and off the ice. But that's not really why I want him to win the award. It's the award's name: the Kharlamov Trophy. Yes, that Kharlamov.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - LPGA Hall of Famer Juli Inkster will turn 55 next month. So what was she doing tying for seventh in her most recent start, at last month's Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout, a week after coming in 15th at the Swinging Skirts Classic in San Francisco, her best finish since a 15th at last June's U.S. Open? Isn't women's golf mostly supposed to belong to teenagers these days? So maybe there's a time warp going on. "I love competing," Inkster said at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, where the 54-hole LPGA ShopRite Classic tees off tomorrow on the Bay Course.

THE FIRST thing Nick Schultz does whenever he walks into the Flyers' locker room after a game or practice is to swap his helmet for a black, flat-brim hat - pulled low over his eyes. He jokes it makes him fit in with a younger team. It also conveniently hides his receding hairline, though he didn't mention that part. Aside from Vinny Lecavalier, Schultz has played 214 more NHL games than the next closest player on the Flyers' roster. He arrived in Philadelphia without another game guaranteed, signed as a spare defenseman last summer.

PICKING THE Flyers' 2015 winner of the Barry Ashbee Trophy for best defenseman is like shooting darts: just hit the board. It's impossible to be wrong. The award will be handed out 2 weeks from tomorrow for the 39th time, yet following extended runs by Kimmo Timonen (five) and Eric Desjardins (seven), it has rarely been tougher to decide on a clear winner. The last time the Flyers were this putrid, in 2006-07, it was also a tossup. Derian Hatcher won out over Joni Pitkanen in a season in which the Flyers dressed a total of 17 defensemen for games.

IS IT ME, or has there not been nearly as much Heisman Trophy hype this November? Maybe it's because a bunch of the guys who were up there in August aren't around anymore, for whatever reasons. And the fact 2013 winner Jameis Winston - largely because of serious off-field issues - likely won't get nearly as much love this time doesn't help. Right now, it's Marcus Mariota's hardware to lose. And he might well have been the favorite coming into the season, despite not finishing in the top 10 last year.

With three minutes left in the game, Beth Lynch spotted it. Across the field at Wissahickon High School on Saturday evening, a fold-up table stood on the track just off the turf. On top were a compressed umbrella, a partially filled water bottle, and a set of medals with red, white, and blue ribbons attached to them. But what caught the eye of Unionville's head coach was a shining gold trophy that rested at the table's center. "There's the trophy," Lynch recalled telling her assistant coach.

BACK IN August, with hockey training camps and the buzz of the season still too far away to grasp, NHL Network re-aired the clinching game of the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. There was John LeClair, named to the all-tournament team, going up against a young Eric Lindros in his prime. The pre-high-definition footage seemed almost grainy compared to today's standards. But when the horn sounded in a stunned Molson Centre in Montreal, with the United States erasing a 2-0 deficit late in the third period against Canada, the cameras caught an unforgettable image.

ON A SOLEMN DAY usually reserved for locker cleanout and one last team excursion to Atlantic City to drown a long season, Claude Giroux did one better yesterday. Giroux earned himself a trip to Las Vegas for the NHL Awards. The Flyers' captain was announced as one of three finalists for the Hart Trophy, awarded to the NHL's most valuable player, along with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf. The winner will be announced June 24 at the Wynn Las Vegas. "To be nominated is a great honor," Giroux said in a statement.
