Michael Gramlich has played golf with the same three guys at Old York Road Country Club "about 100 times," but had experienced nothing like what happened to his usual foursome during a recent round. Gramlich, 41, a sales executive from Ambler, recorded a double eagle at the 525-yard, par-5 ninth, holing out a 4-wood from about 225 yards. But the rest of the group did something almost as remarkable. "It was just funny," Gramlich said Friday. "And the funniest thing about the hole was that John said he had the hardest par he's ever had to make, getting up and down out of a bunker.

Federal authorities have in their possession a spiral notebook seized from former Pete Rose associate Mike Bertolini that is said to list wagers he placed for Rose on Cincinnati Reds games. Rose has consistently denied that he bet on any baseball games. Sources say the notebook contains lists of bets placed by Bertolini for Rose with a New York bookmaker. "The government has the notebook," said Bertolini's lawyer, Nicholas De Feis. "It's considered evidence at this time, and I'm not going to comment on what's in it. " Baseball officials hope to get custody of the notebook when the government's investigation of the baseball memorabilia industry ends.

Shot in a rural Iranian village - a snaky maze of dirt alleys, white stucco houses and flapping clotheslines - this sweet little film tells the story of an 8-year-old boy's panicky peregrinations, as he attempts to return a schoolmate's mislaid notebook.

Judging from the sound of pocketbooks clicking open and tissues being passed in the darkened theater the other day, a lot of people started to lose it when James Garner cried. It's not just that his character in The Notebook - the loyal companion of a woman with Alzheimer's - is so decent and true. It's also that Garner, whose laid-back persona has charmed the public since Maverick bowed on TV in 1957, is such a beloved American figure that watching him stuff his knuckles into his mouth to hold back sobs just about breaks your heart.

A toll-free tip line set up for O.J. Simpson's defense was receiving 100 calls a minute, his attorney Robert Shapiro said yesterday. AT&T would not release the number of calls.

This is totally O.J.'s thing," Shapiro said, adding that a message on the hotline had been changed to delete a referral to Shapiro's office for legal representation.
