Mention Major League Soccer and you think of one name: David Beckham. Or maybe two: David Beckham and Victoria Beckham. The blockbuster signing in January instantly elevated the league's profile among average Americans, but it also cast a mountainous shadow over what was the league's busiest and arguably its most productive offseason. There are several other big-name player signings, one new team, two new stadiums, a new landmark television deal, new sponsorship deals, new full-time ... [full story]

CHICAGO - To revisionist historians and illogical-leap theorists, Eddy Curry is a godsend. If only the Bulls had a low-post scorer such as Curry, the theorists muse, the NBA Finals would be on Chicago's June calendar. If only the Bulls had kept the kid, the historians say, they wouldn't have needed to throw silly money at old man Ben Wallace - and they might be on the cusp of a new dynasty. And if only ...

Eric Wynalda has called Los Angeles Galaxy general manager (and former national-team roommate) Alexi Lalas a "liar." He said U.S. national coach Bruce Arena "screwed up this World Cup" moments after elimination last summer and demanded his immediate dismissal. He said potential Arena replacement Juergen Klinsmann is "not a good guy." He once said Freddy Adu was playing so poorly that "he may really be 14." And now he has rattled a stick in the ...

It’s a little known secret, but the blanket of the black-eyed Susans draped over the shoulder of the winning horse in the Preakness Stakes is actually made of Viking daisies. While the black-eyed Susan is the state flower of Maryland, where the race is run at Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, black-eyed Susans don’t bloom until June. Instead, the 18-inch-by-90-inch blanket is made of daisies with a black spot lacquered in the middle, a ... [full story]

Fishing experiences can range from both the pleasure that comes from catching a fish to the pain and frustration that comes when "the big one" gets away. For every successful fish story you might hear at the boat ramp, there are probably many more tales anglers left in disbelief as the fish of their dreams breaks their line -- never to be seen again.   Ken Cook is the 1991 Bassmaster Classic champion and a 14-time Classic ...

A 3/4 moon hung in the sky over the eastern end of the reservoir in early afternoon. An osprey flew overhead, keeping a sharp eye on the chilly water for its next meal. A river otter lifted its head above the water about 30 yards from our boat, checking us out. A coating of snow still lay on the summit of Lookout Mountain in the distance. I accompanied Mike Lunn and his chocolate lab Lulu ... [full story]

It's tough being the top of the food chain: All your food gives you problems. It's not uncommon to see a blue jay chasing an owl, or swallows ganging up on a hawk, or - as our image captures  - a red-winged blackbird routing a much larger snail kite. Such overt discrimination is called mobbing and is practiced by many smaller birds against the very ones who could easily turn and snatch a couple of them ...

The next Car of Tomorrow test isn't until April 21 in Phoenix but teams got no rest from the new machine this week. Many drivers tested it at Richmond, Va., site of the May 5 COT event earlier this week. "I think the car is going fairly decent right now," said Greg Biffle after the morning session on Tuesday. "This is going to be a big deal here to see how it turns. You know, ... [full story]

CANTON, Ohio - It's fun to debate whether the Cleveland Browns should make a run at David Carr. Up front, we hear they have virtually no interest in the No. 1 overall pick of the 2002 draft. Kinda shades the debate, but ... are they making a mistake? One NFL man with strong knowledge of Carr tells us he's still sold on the 27-year-old QB. "He's going to make it," the source said. "He reminds ... [full story]

Figuratively, golf saved Alice Harcourt's life the first time nearly 20 years ago. She was a workaholic mother in a blended family of nine until she picked up the game at age 44. She was so competitive, so driven, so impassioned by the game, golf became her life. There wasn't much time for work after that, and Harcourt became one of the most decorated female amateurs in San Diego County history. The Fallbrook, Calif., resident ... [full story]

  Solid contact is a key factor in good putting. For solid contact, the putter head needs to strike the ball at the lowest point in the arc of the putting stroke.  Proper setup is critical here.  There are three basic putting styles and by understanding which one best describes you, it makes it easier to ensure you are setting yourself up for the best possible putting stroke:Weight forward:  If you tend to set up to ...

The impish antics of brothers Brian and Marcus Giles have added mirth to a San Diego Padres spring training that is soon to end. Even General Manager Kevin Towers is not exempted from the fun, as he discovered Wednesday upon entering a clubhouse bathroom. A few seconds into the task, Marcus Giles, the burr-headed, 5-foot-8 second baseman Towers signed in December, peeked into the room to ask Towers how he was doing. Such yuks have ... [full story]

CHICAGO - When the game's most critical moment arrived for Jason Michaels on Wednesday afternoon, he wasn't afraid of losing. He wasn't afraid of slamming into the wall. He was, however, afraid at just what joy-crazed Grady Sizemore might do when he arrived on the scene. "My heart was stopped for a second, then I just started screaming," Sizemore said after Michaels' basket catch just before hitting the left-field fence preserved Cleveland's 8-7 victory over Chicago. "I ... [full story]
