Dave Stockton, the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, filled out the 12-man team yesterday with his two wild-card selections. Chip Beck, had been considered a given. But 48-year-old Ray Floyd came as a surprise. Floyd, who served as non-playing captain two years ago, was chosen over veterans Tom Watson and Tom Kite. "It's the only part of the job I have not liked at all," said Stockton, via a conference call. "I think he's the best putter of the three. I tried to look at everybody honestly.

Radical's latest offering is quite a wild "Ryde. " Indeed, "Ryder on the Storm" is the type of book that changes direction constantly and has more layers than an onion. Just when you feel you have the story and players figured out, everything gets turned upside down. Indeed, the first issue has a whopping 52 pages of story and writer David Hine expertly makes use of every one of them. The result is a horror story worthy of Steve Niles , a crime story worthy of Christos Gage and dialogue worthy of Brian Michael Bendis . There is also a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a riddle.

When Edward Ryder was released from prison 3 1/2 years ago, the singer-trumpeter figured that by now he would be tasting the sweet life. He would have found a steady job. Maybe he would have cut an album. Maybe reveled in fame and comfort. Unrealistic dreams, perhaps. But if Ryder fantasized in rainbows, it was for spending half a lifetime in dungeons - 20 years for a murder he and others say he did not commit. As things turned out, Ryder's life in North Philadelphia has been a patchwork of part-time, low-level jobs.

It was a matter of money, pure and simple, that led investigators to the suspect in the World Trade Center bombing. Mohammed A. Salameh wasn't willing to walk away from the $400 security deposit on the rented Ryder van allegedly used in the bombing on Friday. The 26-year-old suspect kept telling the rental agency here that the van had been stolen, and he returned repeatedly to ask for the money. Yesterday morning, when he came back for a third time to haggle over the deposit, undercover FBI agents were waiting.

For Henry Ryder, the beginning and middle are just as fun as the end. Each spring for more than 25 years, the economics professor at Gloucester County College has overseen the start of the planting season at the college's community gardening site in Sewell, and he has been there until the last vegetables are harvested late in the fall. To an economist, the plots, which are rented to anyone wishing one, make a heck of a lot of dollar sense. After all, Ryder said: "Where else can you get 600 square feet to plant whatever you want for $20?"

Haverford High had more than just pride at stake as it took the field against Strath Haven Saturday in a Central League showdown. The Fords, coming off a 27-0 loss to Springfield the previous week, were looking to show their true form. It also was homecoming for Strath Haven, an occurrence not lost on Haverford's two-way standout Mike Rodgers. "You don't know how great it was that it was their homecoming," Rodgers said. "It's always great to ruin a homecoming. " Haverford High succeeded in spoiling the event for Strath Haven, with the Fords rebounding from an 8-0 first-quarter deficit to score 37 straight points for a 37-15 victory over the Panthers.

Britain's 99-year-old Queen Mother was unable to attend the annual Remembrance Sunday service in London yesterday in honor of Britain's war dead because of a chill. Not to worry. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said it was nothing serious and "at 99, I think she can be forgiven. " The mother of Queen Elizabeth usually stands on a balcony overlooking Whitehall on Remembrance Sunday to watch the laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph memorial and the procession by former military veterans.

If you have read the financial news pages casually in recent years, you might think that not much was left of IU International Corp. by now. After all, this is the big Philadelphia-based conglomerate that since 1979 has sold or spun off to shareholders no fewer than eight major subsidiaries. Even though it still uses the initials IU, which once stood for International Utilities, it no longer owns any utilities. Neither does it own the mining and shipping companies that were mainstays of its business, nor does it have Ryder/P-I-E, once the largest of its numerous trucking subsidiaries.

THE INTERNATIONAL golf insanity begins Friday, known as the Ryder Cup, despite its lack of affiliation with any truck rental company. Its namesake, who began as a discount seed distributor, would be delighted to see that the competition has outgrown its charter; that is, to promote golf intercontinentally. He also likely would be alarmed to see how little the essence of the competition has changed since its charter was fulfilled. Samuel Ryder got his name on the Cup because he was a major sponsor of the competitions, which, generally, were money-losers in the "BT" (Before Tiger)

U.S. captain Tom Watson said he would be foolish not to consider Tiger Woods as one of his three wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup, a decision that ultimately would be based on Woods' words instead of his actions. Watson has said all year he wanted Woods on his team if he was healthy and playing well. Even though Woods is injured and not playing for the next month, Watson wouldn't rule him out Monday. "I can't assess his medical condition and I honestly can't assess how he's playing," Watson said.

MICHAEL RYDER scored in the first and third periods, and Kari Lehtonen came within 3.4 seconds of a shutout in the Dallas Stars' 2-1 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday night in Detroit. Lehtonen made 39 saves, but allowed Damien Brunner's first career goal in the final seconds. Ryder had already added an insurance goal with 14:26 to play. Detroit's Jimmy Howard had 30 saves - including 16 in the second period - to keep his team in it. Jaromir Jagr went without a point for Dallas for a second straight game after posting two goals and two assists in the season opener Saturday.

Every new year in golf is shrouded in mystery like the clouds over Molokai across the channel from Kapalua, Hawaii, where the PGA Tour gets under way with the Tournament of Champions on Friday. Here's what to look for in the new season: European captain. The Americans went back in time by picking Tom Watson as Ryder Cup captain. Does that mean Europe needs to answer with a larger-than-life figure for its captain? There have been suggestions that Colin Montgomerie would return over Darren Clarke or Paul McGinley.

THE BEST RYDER CUP in history is over. It was thrilling; it was unexpected; it was a bookie's nightmare, an all-time comeback, an upset for the ages. The undermanned European squad's Sunday comeback from four points down was better than the uncomfortable Belfry tie in 1989; better than the War by the Shore in 1991, a jingoistic embarrassment at Kiawah Island; better than the United States' four-point comeback in 1999, forever tarnished by a premature celebration. What did we learn this year?

MEDINAH, Ill. - Erasing some of their worst Ryder Cup memories, the Europeans wore the image of Seve Ballesteros on their sleeves and played their hearts out Sunday at Medinah Country Club to match the greatest comeback in history and head home with that precious gold trophy. Europe got its payback for 1999 at Brookline, when the Americans roared back from the same 10-6 deficit. This rally was even more remarkable, carried out in front of a raucous American crowd that began its chants of "USA!"

MEDINAH, Ill. - Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley helped stake the U.S. team to its biggest lead in the Ryder Cup in more than 30 years. Ian Poulter, eyes bulging and fists shaking with every clutch putt, at least gave Europe a lot of momentum over the final frantic hour Saturday at Medinah. Right when it looked as if the Americans were a lock to win back the cup, Poulter birdied his last five holes to win a crucial point and keep everyone guessing. Steady chants of "USA! USA!" gave way to snappy serenades of "Ole, Ole" as both sides trudged to the team rooms in darkness to prepare for 12 singles matches on Sunday.

MEDINAH, Ill. - The question used to come up every other year when the Americans began looking ahead to the Ryder Cup. "Who's their Peter Baker?" Europe always had at least one player the Americans didn't know anything about until losing to him. Baker played in only one Ryder Cup, going 3-1 in 1993 and winning a singles match against Corey Pavin, one of the toughest golfers to beat in match play. Those days are gone. As golf has expanded its borders, the Ryder Cup no longer has any mystery guests.

THE RYDER Cup. There's really nothing quite like it. Forget its distant cousin, the President's Cup. That's more like golf's version of a soccer friendly. It's still a competition, but much less contentious. Over the years, the Europeans and Americans usually have left the impression that they really want to beat the snot out of each other. At least for this one weekend every 2 years. Guys who've won majors contend the Ryder Cup is more pressurized. Because you're not playing for yourself.
