Tiger Woods will consider the possibility of joining the European Tour after changes are made to membership qualification. The European Tour is expected to announce soon that participation in the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, and Seve Trophy will count toward the 13 events needed for tour membership. Woods said he last looked into joining the European Tour in 2000, when the requirement was 11 events. Woods would be only two or three events short of the 13 if the list includes the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, four majors, four World Golf Championship events, and appearances in either Abu Dhabi or Dubai.

For a lot of self-styled soccer purists, there is no choice. Brazil must win today's World Cup final against Germany or the entire monthlong tournament will have been a tainted affair. The idea of Germany, a three-time champion, taking the tournament again wouldn't normally be so bothersome. But even in its own country, the German squad is considered substandard, its players good at one offensive task - getting their heads on free kicks. It is without dispute that the Germans also have a great goalkeeper.

"Ahn has flatly denied Perugia's offer to fully join them," Ahn's agent, ePlayers, said in a statement yesterday.

America will never warm up to the World Cup, say some. Not the way the rest of the world does. Here, folks are too used to thinking that we're apart from the rest. Different. Better. Soccer may be "the world's game," but it ain't ours. Well, bag that. Can you say globalization? This is no longer "only" the world's game; it's our game, too. Starting today, 32 teams from all over the globe convene in Germany and start butting heads for boasting rights as world champ. Whistles blow for the final match on July 9. Why still speak of soccer as a "new" sport?

Carlos Bocanegra put the Americans ahead in the 21st minute off a Landon Donovan corner kick, but Brazil tied it with an own-goal off defender Oguchi Onyewu in the 33d after a shot by Kaka.

The racks and shelves at By Brazil, a shop tucked onto Castor Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia, overflow with yellow-and-green hats, horns, flags, stickers, and soccer jerseys. But roughly three weeks from the opening game of the FIFA World Cup in Sao Paulo, Brazil, owner Lindolfo Neto was glum. "How are we going to spend millions building stadiums, and our people don't have hospitals or schools?" he asked. "I'm not excited for the World Cup in Brazil. " What should be a time of passion and excitement for Brazilians in the Philadelphia area has been tempered, they say, by the civil unrest in their homeland over the billions of taxpayer dollars being spent on the most expensive World Cup in history.

The University of Connecticut admitted that its men's basketball program committed major NCAA recruiting violations and has imposed its own sanctions, including two years of probation and a loss of one scholarship for the next two seasons. The university said the evidence does not support the NCAA allegation that coach Jim Calhoun - who has won two national titles with the Huskies - failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance. In a report released Friday, the school acknowledges its basketball staff made impermissible telephone calls and text messages as cited by the NCAA in a May report that followed a 15-month investigation.

Wow, work a mention of Ronaldinho into a High&Inside column and correct the spelling of Samuel Eto'o in a story and you get pulled off the copy desk and made into a Page 2 half-head talkin' 'bout the Worl' Cu'p. Guess Cohen couldn't afford Kyle Rote Jr. I'm just an average American soccer fan - there are more of us than you'd think, it just takes learning the secret handshake and complicated lingo such as "yellow card," "nil-nil," and "Shep Messing. " This means, of course, that I usually have little idea what strategy or tactics are being employed, I just know that it's all wrong - unless it results in a win, in which case it's what I thought they should have been doing all along.

  When it rains, it's Florida The Phillies and Marlins started off Friday night's game in Miami with a rain delay, which was probably no surprise to Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez. After waiting out a rain delay of 1 hour, 17 minutes in the middle of an 8-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night, Gonzalez waxed philosophical about the meteorological: "That's the stuff you have to deal with here. [Both teams] lost our starters and had to go the bullpen. You try to push it, because nobody wants to lose their starters, but you can't control Mother Nature - not yet anyway.

Shawn Johnson added a gold on floor to her all-around title at the world championships yesterday in Stuttgart, Germany, and fellow American Nastia Liukin steadied herself on the beam to take her first individual gold of the meet and make up for her disappointing fall in the all-around. "I'm still a world champion," Liukin said. "Yeah, it's not as big or prestigious as the all-around, but a world champion is a world champion and I'll never lose that title. " This medal, along with her somewhat disappointing silver on bars and the U.S. team's gold, give Liukin nine medals to tie her with Shannon Miller as the most decorated American gymnast in the history of world championships.
