A couple of weeks ago, the major independent European basketball publication ran a headline heralding the first triple-double this season in the Euroleague, the elite professional competition that has been the source of starters for several playoff-bound NBA teams. The triple-double came as a surprise to me, the editor of the official Euroleague Web site, until I read more closely. The player in question indeed had scored 27 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, but his numbers after that were clearly single-digit.

A couple of weeks ago, Greece and Turkey nearly went to war over a 10-acre bunch of rocks in the Aegean inhabited by feral goats. The only thing that stopped the warships of these two NATO allies from opening fire - on each other - was a rescue mission by Assistant Secretary of State Richard C. Holbrooke, the same man who rescued the Europeans from their Bosnia mess by negotiating a Balkan peace. But Holbrooke is retiring from public service next week to rejoin the private sector.

Players from the United States and Canada prevailed by 6 1/2-5 1/2 over Europe in the wrap-up of the two-day Seventh Senior Women's Invitation Match yesterday on the East Course of Merion Golf Club. North America now has won all seven meetings with Europe in the series. This year's victory was made possible by the 3-1 lead established by North America in Thursday's foursome matches (alternate drive and alternate stroke). Yesterday, Europe won four of the eight singles matches and halved one. Dorothy Porter of Riverton won the No. 4 singles match for North America by 2 and 1 over Emma Villacieros De Garcia-Ogara of Spain.

The NHL is importing too many European players and will be unable to call itself a North American league for much longer, says the president of the International Ice Hockey Federation. IIHF president Rene Fasel said he wants to see the NHL become more selective in pursuit of Europeans. "Almost half of the NHL is composed of European players," Fasel said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press. "The NHL is losing its North American identity, and at the same time, Europe is losing all its great talent.

They never had a chance. We invited the Europeans to the Breeders' Cup a decade ago and a trickle became a flood by Saturday's ninth Breeders' Cup at Gulfstream Park. The Europeans were winning and threatening to dominate America's greatest day of racing. But they had no chance Saturday. The Europeans encountered conditions that are uniquely American, surfaces with which they were not familiar. The main track was rock hard; it produced two Cup speed records, tied two more and favored horses with early speed with few exceptions.

No way. Europe couldn't win the Ryder Cup. Most everyone said so. The British bookmakers made them 5-2 underdogs. The Europeans hadn't won this biennial competition since 1987, which was also the only time they had been victorious on United States soil. They didn't have one of their best players, Jose Maria Olazabal, who was a late withdrawal because of a toe injury. And one of their giants in the last decade, Seve Ballesteros, has been a shell of his once-imposing self.

The Bush administration yesterday began an investigation that could lead to trade retaliation against the 12-nation European Community in a dispute over the sanitary conditions of U.S. meatpacking plants. The trade inquiry had been expected as a way for the U.S. government to bring pressure on the Europeans to reach some sort of agreement on American demands that Europeans slash the huge subsidies they pay to farmers. That dispute has stalled a four-year effort to overhaul the global trading system.

  AUGUSTA, Ga. - Led by some of the greatest players of their day, such as Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, and Jose Maria Olazabal, Europeans used to win the Masters fairly regularly, a remarkable feat considering that they made up a low percentage of the field. From 1980 through 1999, European players captured the year's first major 11 times in 20 tries, with people theorizing about everything from short game to course management at Augusta National to the influence of the Ryder Cup as the reasons.

Watch the 17th. The hole could win or lose the Ryder Cup. It is the 511-yard par 5 redesigned four years ago by Seve Ballesteros, the European captain. And it is a killer. The Americans were complaining about it after two days of practice. Ballesteros shook off criticism of his man-made monster. "If you don't like it," he said of the 17th, "it's only because you don't know how to play it. You should have your match won before you get to 17, and you won't have to worry about it. " Even a perfect tee shot can get golfers in trouble.

Two University of South Carolina researchers have unearthed on Parris Island what appears to be the oldest European-style pottery kiln in North America. If the discovery holds up under scrutiny - and experts believe it will - archaeologists who study the colonization of the Americas might have to re- evaluate their theories about the role of Spanish settlements in the Southeast. Until now, historians and archaeologists had believed much of the 16th- century pottery found in North America had come from Europe or sites in Central and South America.

LAS VEGAS – So who is Kristaps Porzingis? Last summer, the 7-foot-1 power forward, with guard-like skills, received a lottery-pick guarantee from the Orlando Magic if he opted to remain in the 2014 draft. Porzingis instead withdrew his name and played another season for Baloncesto Sevilla of the Asociacion de Clubs de Baloncesto in Spain and was named Eurocup rising star for this past season. With that extra season of development, the 19-year-old believes the time is right to start his NBA career.

As European and North American diplomats are inching toward new global free-trade deals, trade representatives from countries including Italy, Germany, Britain, Poland, the Netherlands, and Sweden visited Philadelphia on Nov. 6 for a tour of business sites. They were eager to learn more about importing cheap gas and other fuels and raw materials from Pennsylvania and other states. "How many of your countries import gas from the Soviet Union?" asked Michael Krancer , a former Pennsylvania environmental secretary.

GAMES HAVE been called off for lots of strange reasons. A fire at Comiskey Park caused by the demolition of disco records led to the White Sox forfeiting a game in 1979. Bad turf at Veterans Stadium caused a preseason game against the Ravens to be canceled in 2001. Part of the roof flying off the Spectrum forced the Flyers to flee to Quebec in March 1968. Fans stampeded old RFK Stadium, forcing a premature end to the Washington Senators' very last game in D.C. in 1971 And there was even a Honeymooners episode called "Game called on account of marriage.

The overwhelming belief is the 76ers are going to be the NBA's worst team. But based on two preseason games in Europe, it still might be fun to keep tabs on their maturation process. The Sixers push the ball, attack the rim, and keep defensive heat on opponents. "I'm very proud of my teammates for playing hard and playing tough," veteran guard Evan Turner said Tuesday after a 103-99 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. "Any time you do that, you give yourself a chance to win night in and night out. " But the Sixers roster wasn't built to win night in and night out. The team has only six players with more than two years of NBA experience.

MANCHESTER, England - The 76ers will tell you the trip to Europe was beneficial. Michael Carter-Williams developed into a team leader, and the Sixers bonded during the six-day trip. Players who were strangers weeks ago were laughing like lifelong best friends in Bilbao, Spain, and Manchester. "This has proven to be a real good exercise for us," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before Tuesday's 103-99 preseason loss to Oklahoma City at Phones 4U Arena. "It has been a positive experience.

THE 76ERS broke from their 5-day, eight-practice training camp yesterday at Saint Joseph's to embark on a 6-day Europe trip that will include a pair of games and a few practices. Watching players leave the locker room at Hagan Arena following the final workout, there was no denying a plethora of sore bodies were departing the gym. Spencer Hawes tweaked a knee and missed a couple of days, though he said he'll be ready to play in the team's first preseason game on Sunday in Bilbao, Spain, against a FIBA team.

In terms of foreign aid, it felt like a bit of role reversal Friday at the University City Science Center. An audience of science center reps, scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs heard about funding opportunities, not from their own country with an eye to expanding globally, but money coming from the European Union. That's right: The 28 countries that make up the European Union have put up 70 billion euros, or more than $90 billion, to promote science and research aimed largely at bolstering Europe's position in the world but also with an eye to tackling issues of global significance as well, such as climate change.

Campbell Soup Co.'s announcement Monday that it is in final negotiations to sell its European business offers further evidence of chief executive Denise Morrison's resolve to shift the Camden company into faster-growing markets. The soup and sauce brands in the proposed sale include Liebig and Royco in France, Erasco in Germany, Blå Band in Sweden, and Devos Lemmens and Royco in Belgium. The business generated about $530 million in revenue in fiscal 2012. Campbell's total revenue last year was $7.7 billion.

SLIGO, Ireland - President Obama this week will visit a European continent deeply worried about its economy, the worsening conflict in Syria, and the uncertain direction of American leadership abroad in the fifth year of his administration. As he arrives Monday in Northern Ireland for his first trip to Europe in two years, Obama will be confronting the diplomatic fallout from his actions and inaction on some of the most urgent concerns of his European counterparts. His long delay in more aggressively supporting Syria's beleaguered opposition forces - a move his administration announced in the form of expanded military aid on the eve of his visit here - has frustrated the leaders of France and Germany.
