CHICAGO - Barry Bonds certainly has the right to hoard remnants of every steroid he "accidentally" has used, every piece of body armor he has donned and every mirror he has smooched. And I certainly have the right to deny him - and the Baseball Hall of Fame - Home Run Ball No. 756 if I catch that sphere-shaped winning Lotto ticket. What's his is his, what's mine is mine and ne'er the twain shall ... [full story]

Many historians consider the Seven Years' War the first truly global conflict, and when it ended in 1763 representatives of the world's most powerful nations gathered in Paris to carve up the planet. France essentially gave most of modern-day Canada to the British in exchange for control of Guadeloupe, a group of five tiny islands and a 4,800-foot volcano on the eastern edge of the Caribbean. Nearly 2 1/2 centuries later, it makes perfect sense. ... [full story]

  Professional Golf Tips: Use hybrid clubs when chipping Many players are not comfortable with the long chip shot, where you have a lot of green to work with and you need to clear just a bit of fringe before landing the ball on the green and letting it roll to the hole.

Plumed in flaming orange and black, the male Baltimore oriole bows low to an olive-brown female, his tail spread and wings slightly raised in a courtly curtsey. His whistling, flutelike voice serenades her in rich, melodic tones, and the flashy blackbirds pair to breed.Preferring a home with a view, they fashion a distinctive hanging nest, woven from plant fibers and suspended from the twig tips, high in a tree. Affixing just a single fiber at ... [full story]

You must remember this: Tom Brown acted properly when he chose to put the title of his book, "As Tom Goes By," in the present tense. At 84, his romance with tennis is continuing. As he notes in the foreword, " ... the sentimental things apply." They do for Brown, who in the work he has done with Lee Tyler, his longtime female companion, relives another time in tennis, when there was no money in ... [full story]

In other words, one did more than swing the bat. The game involved defending - and even running. It rewarded those who at least attempted to do everything. Not everyone was Willie Mays, of course, but flaws also were part of the beauty of a ... [full story]

CHICAGO - Human beings simply can't do what Derrek Lee did. After missing nearly a week's worth of games with neck spasms, mere mortals do not step up to the plate and hit game-clinching grand slams. A producer would have thrown such a script back into a screenwriter's face, saying: "Get this hokey, unrealistic claptrap out of here! And I want the 'Oceans 117' script on my desk in the morning!" Hokey or not, Lee ... [full story]
