VIJAY SINGH sued the PGA Tour yesterday for exposing him to "public humiliation and ridicule" during a 12-week investigation into his use of deer-antler spray that ended last week when the tour dropped its case against him. The lawsuit was a surprise, and so was the timing - the day before The Players Championship, the flagship event on the PGA Tour held on its home course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., where Singh has honed his game for the last...

NEW ORLEANS - Smiling, even laughing, at questions about a report linking him to a company that purports to make performance-enhancers, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Wednesday he "never, ever took" the stuff. Lewis described himself as "agitated," not angry, that the Sports Illustrated story has become part of the Super Bowl-week prelude to Baltimore's game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The magazine said Lewis sought help from a company that says its deer-antler spray and pills contain a banned product connected to human growth hormone.

THE PLOT thickens. On the day after Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis denied using deer-antler spray, golfer Vijay Singh said he did. The spray, manufactured by Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS), contains IGF-1, a performance-enhancing substance banned by Major League baseball and the PGA Tour. On Tuesday, Lewis denied a Sports Illustrated report that he had purchased the spray from SWATS co-owner Mitch Ross to hasten his recovery from a torn right triceps he suffered in October.

IMAGINE AN ELK whose antlers sprawl upward and outward like a 10-story apartment building. Then imagine there are inhabitants of those antlers - birds and squirrels and people who built a child's tree house and left it there. Now try to see yourself wearing "The Elk With Antlers That Never Stopped Growing," a piece of 21st-century art jewelry that encircles your head and neck like a whimsical bramble bush. To witness this 3-D fairy-tale object and others equally fantastical, head to the Philadelphia Art Alliance for "Legends," a show of visionary jewelry made by 25-year-old Emily Cobb, who designs her works with CAD (computer-assisted design)

A Doylestown man hunting elk for the first time bagged the largest elk of the state season, weighing about 930 pounds. "There are only 18 tags, and I was lucky to get one," said William Zee, referring to the lottery for licenses to hunt antlered elk. The Pennsylvania Game Commission also issued 38 licenses for antlerless elk. Zee, who usually hunts whitetail deer, said he took his rifle and bow on this hunting trip. He shot the elk Nov. 1 in Goshen Township, Clearfield County.

BOISE, Idaho - A woman was able to escape an attack by a mule deer after a passer-by and his daughter fought off the buck, grabbing the antlers and striking it with a hammer until it fled, state wildlife officials said. Sue Panter was on a stroll near her home in rural southeastern Idaho when the buck attacked, raking her body with his antlers and goring her legs, officials said. Michael Vaughan and his 17-year-old daughter, Alexis, spotted the struggle early Friday and tried to intervene, the state Department of Fish and Game said in a statement on Sunday.

If John Ford were alive and working today, he'd probably want Explosions in the Sky to score the soundtracks to his movies. The director known for his long deep shots of the American prairie's wide open vistas in epic films such as Stagecoach and The Grapes of Wrath would have loved the Texas instrumental quintet's provocative brand of lonely but lively ambience - the likes of which were on grand display at the Tower Theater on Sunday night....

The Antlers and opening act Little Scream each filled the large upstairs "sanctuary" area of Philadelphia's First Unitarian Church with climbing, skyward-driven sounds Wednesday. Under the high ceiling of the edifice (dating from 1796), which vaults majestically over the church space (complete with pews for seating), an adjective such as soaring seems practically mandatory if at all applicable to music played therein. The set from the Antlers, showcasing their second album, Burst Apart , amply justified such description.

Of all the '80s-inspired acts to come from the class of 2003-05, Birmingham, England's Editors had it the hardest. They weren't as flashy as their contemporaries such as Franz Ferdinand. They weren't as political as Bloc Party or as poppy as Kaiser Chiefs. Editors didn't even have quite the same danceable robo-disco thrust as the others. What Editors did have was an impressive dedication to Joy Division's bleak, atmospheric brand of post-punk with a vocalist and lyricist (baritone Tom Smith)
