The flags had been fluttering in the sultry breeze. And as
Williams looked up, all but two suddenly went limp.

That's what we call business as usual for the man who won his 13th major at the tender age
(in golf years) of 31.
If ESPN's bracketology is to believed, it sounds like a bad omen for our college basketball teams.
In the latest version of March Madness brackets, only fifth seed Villanova is an NCAA Tournament player from the city. Even Penn is left out, as Cornell is projected to get the Ivy League's bid.
The top seeds are projected to be North
Carolina, UCLA, Memphis and Louisville.
We'll take the "over" and presume more than one city team finds its way in.

Thought you would like to know this: Former Rangers goalie Mike Richter, 40, of Flourtown, completed his first Ironman competition, according to the New York Times
. Last month at Lake Placid, N.Y., he swam 2.4 miles, cycled 112 miles and ran 26.2 miles in 12 hours, 49 minutes, 10 seconds.
"Sports, in its best light, is about challenging yourself and improving yourself as a person," Richter said. Well put, indeed. *
