HOUSTON - Waving American flags and space shuttle toys, hundreds of people lined the streets and crowded the airport Wednesday as they watched the space shuttle Endeavour touch down in Houston on its way to be permanently displayed in California. For many, the experience was bittersweet, tinged with an aftertaste of having been cheated of something they believe should have been theirs. Houston has long tied its fortune to a mix of oil and NASA. Astronauts train in the humid, mosquito-ridden city.

If you want to try out for the Philadelphia Soul, the city's new Arena Football League team, you can travel to Memphis this weekend. Or go to Houston the next. Or just be a little patient. The team announced yesterday that it has scheduled tryouts in both of those cities for this month - and expects to have one in Philadelphia sometime next month, time and place to be announced. Team officials said they chose Memphis and Houston because the cities are at the center of football-playing hotbeds, the mid-South for Memphis, the state of Texas for Houston.

The 76ers could be a landing spot for Houston Rockets center Omer Asik in a trade, CBSSports.com reported Sunday night. The Rockets could make point guard Jeremy Lin and Asik available in trades as they pursue free-agent center Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. Houston is expected to sign Howard, meaning Asik would become expendable. New Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie was an executive with Houston for the last eight seasons. Last summer, the Rockets signed Asik to a three-year, $25.1 million deal when he was a restricted free agent with the Chicago Bulls.
