Russ Buller was having a heart-to-heart talk with his younger brother, Jordan. A former high school all-state quarterback, Jordan was struggling academically in college. Russ told his brother he was letting an opportunity slip away, that he needed to re-focus and apply himself, in the classroom and on the football field. Jordan listened during the drive in their Lake Charles, La., hometown, then turned the pressure back in Russ' face. "What about you?" Jordan said. ... [full story]

It is a single number buried in a 14-page report from the World Anti-Doping Agency, but it is another strong indication that major league baseball players are continuing to pop amphetamines and other banned stimulants despite the introduction of testing last year. Urine samples in Major League Baseball's anti-doping policy are sent to a Montreal lab for analysis. And because the Montreal lab is accredited by WADA, it is required to submit all positive test ...

The overall grade on Dale Earnhardt Jr. as a driver is still incomplete. We know he can win races. But championships? Everyone believes Junior is a better driver than the cars supplied by his late father's team. But no one knows for sure. Soon we will find out.

MALIBU, Calif. - "Hi, Greg, this is your uncle." It is what, according to three-time Tour de France champion Greg LeMond, the voice at the other end of his mobile phone said Wednesday night. And it is what made Floyd Landis' doping arbitration hearing, heretofore a tedious exercise in isotopes and chromatograms, take a dramatic left turn into surreal terrain Thursday. In a matter of minutes, a case about urine tests from Stage 17 of ... [full story]

Inasmuch as the Yankees' pitching staff has more leaks than the Lusitania, the Rocket's return to baseball's richest, winningest and most tradition-conscious team may be less significant competitively than it is culturally. When the most ... [full story]

CHICAGO - What a shame. Just when the season was getting really good, it was over. The Chicago Bulls made the great Detroit Pistons sweat, made them work, made them deal with adversity. But the Bulls couldn't make them go back to The Palace of Auburn Hills for a Game 7. The Eastern Conference finals ended in six games, with Detroit winning 95-85 Thursday night, and the Bulls only could watch dejectedly as the Pistons ... [full story]
