It is High Noon in the Heartland, on the day in May that we set aside for remembering, and also for the worshiping of speed, which accounts for those 33 land missiles disguised as cars lined up in 11 meticulous rows, three across. The grandstands are massive, stretching out to the far, flat Indiana horizon, and the air is heavy and fat with the smell of gasoline and adrenaline and anticipation. There is the singing of "Back Home Again in Indiana," a paean to sycamores and the Wabash, and to little green apples, and then 33 drivers, wiry and small with no nerves and flame-retardant suits, shoehorn themselves into their land missiles and await the word, wait to be waved on their way, wait for this thunderous command, the most recognizable in sports: "Gentlemen and Ladies, start your engines.

INDIANAPOLIS - IndyCar hit the jackpot with the Indianapolis 500: a record number of lead changes, a thrilling final dash for the trophy, a popular podium finish and 500 miles of racing under a blistering sun. "What a tremendous race. We couldn't have asked for anything better for our marquee event," IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said Monday. That's the hard sell for the attention-starved series. Despite good racing, strong story lines and colorful characters, IndyCar can't seem to grow its fan base.

No doubt scouts are still talking about an impressive group of defensive backs who took the field Tuesday as the NFL scouting combine ended in Indianapolis. According to NFL.com, evaluators saw standout performances that enhanced the value of several top prospects at the cornerback position. Dee Milliner of Alabama, the top-rated corner, answered questions about his speed and quickness with a remarkable 4.37-second effort in the 40-yard dash. Tyrann Mathieu of LSU also impressed with a time of 4.5 in the 40.   "Me time" for Nnamdi Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha ate lunch in his car during practices instead of eating with his teammates last season, WIP-AM (610)

Eagles fans take note! Those of you who are dying to get a shot at having Peyton Manning in midnight green read on. Those of you shrewd enough to realize that a free-agent Manning might wind up in Washington can skip down to the next note. Because the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that "Manning and the Colts are done. " Citing sources involved in the Colts' recent GM search, La Canfora says the decision to part ways with Manning was made "weeks ago, well before this public squabble between the quarterback and his owner [Jim Irsay]

  LeBron James dropped to the floor in Miami, holding the back of his head and then staggering a bit when he reached his feet. A few moments later, he was fine. And a few moments after that, the Miami Heat had complete control of Game 1 against the New York Knicks. James scored 32 points after shooting 10 for 14 from the field, and the Heat rode the strength of what became a 32-2 run to easily beat the Knicks, 100-67, on Saturday, striking first in the series between clubs that waged classic annual battles from 1997 through 2000 and are meeting for the first time since.

NEW YORK - Andrew Luck knows exactly where he's heading, and so does Robert Griffin III. For the rest of the college stars preparing for the NFL draft Thursday night, the anxiety is building. Nobody is looking forward to the green room at Radio City Music Hall.

INDIANAPOLIS - Notre Dame wideout Michael Floyd, at 6-3, 220, could be the big, strong receiver the Eagles and other teams covet. If the Eagles are able to address linebacking in free agency, and if they really don't intend to hold onto DeSean Jackson after all, suddenly, a wideout at 15th overall in the first round sounds very plausible. Floyd came to the NFL Scouting Combine with some 'splainin' to do about three alcohol-related incidents in his past. Floyd was asked this weekend what he wants to show teams about himself, in interviews.

INDIANAPOLIS - All things being equal, LeSean McCoy would rather have been in Philadelphia yesterday. Breathing the same air as the hated Giants - who will face the Patriots Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI and are bunking just a half-block away from where the Eagles running back received the FedEx Ground Player of the Year award - wasn't easy. He could have taken a rain check like FedEx's Air Player of the Year winner Drew Brees. But McCoy felt he owed it to the Eagles to be there and represent the organization the right way. "It's bigger than that," he said.

Buffalo's Jim Kelly scored on a 1-yard rollout for the game's only touchdown, and Dean Biasucci of Indianapolis kicked two field goals last night as the AFC defeated the NFC, 15-6, in a sloppily played Pro Bowl. The game, which began in 83-degree heat, was marred by 10 turnovers - five for each team. The two teams showed how much timing they were lacking after only five days of practice. The game was more of a defensive duel. End Bruce Smith of Buffalo, named the game's most valuable player, had five tackles and two sacks to lead the AFC. The Eagles' Reggie White had seven tackles and one sack for the NFC. "It was the hardest-hitting Pro Bowl I've been in," said Rams guard Dennis Harrah, who got in a fight early in the game with AFC nose tackle Bill Maas of Kansas City.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis wants to become the first major city to replace its entire fleet with electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in a move the mayor says is designed to reduce U.S. reliance on foreign-produced fuels, city officials said Wednesday. Mayor Greg Ballard signed an executive order Wednesday mandating the city to replace its current sedans with electric vehicles. The city will also work with the private sector to phase in snow plows, fire trucks and other heavy vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, and it will ask automakers to develop a plug-in hybrid police car as one doesn't yet exist.

INDIANAPOLIS - The field is set for the Indianapolis 500. And, more importantly, it's full. On an otherwise ho-hum day of qualifying, nine cars made the field on their first attempts, ending any potential last-minute drama and assuring the May 27 race would start with a full field of 33 cars for the 64th consecutive year. Things went almost as smoothly Sunday as race organizers could have expected. For the first time since 2004, there were no bump attempts - taking away the intrigue of last year's enthralling finish when Marco Andretti bumped his way into the race by knocking out teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay on the final four-lap qualifying attempt of the month.

INDIANAPOLIS - Roger Penske's strategy beat Michael Andretti by inches Saturday - 9.168 inches, to be exact. In the closest pole duel in Indianapolis 500 history, Team Penske sent points leader Will Power onto the track with two minutes left in the Pole Day shootout - a shrewd move that prevented three Andretti drivers from taking one last shot at the pole and preserving it for his own guy, Ryan Briscoe. It was a remarkable finish to a wild afternoon. Briscoe was the surprise winner of his first Indy pole with a four-lap average of 226.484 m.p.h.
