I AM A FAN of the Winter Olympics, and I was shocked, saddened and disgusted to hear the sarcasm, disdain and borderline racial comments in the voice of U.S. Olympic speed skater Chad Hedrick, whose discontent with teammate Shani Davis was blatantly obvious during his interview with the press. It appears that, since Davis didn't participate in aiding Hedrick in his quest to match or break former U.S. speed skater Eric Heiden's record of five gold medals, he was disloyal and undeserving of being a teammate.

RE PAUL Hagen's Feb. 21 article "Outta Here": The only thing that seems consistent from year to year with the Phillies is the broadcast booth. So, Mr. Montgomery, please leave the broadcast team alone and put the new guy at the end of the line. Not Larry Anderson. And while you are at it why not give Harry Kalas the life time contract he deserves and be done with it. If you mess around with the broadcast booth there might just be a lot of fans OUTTA HERE!!!!

THE 2006 WINTER OLYMPICS have been one big belly-flop here in the good old U.S. of A. NBC and the rest of the news media across the country have done their best to drum up interest in the snow sports. But we the audience just don't seem to be cooperating. And neither are members of our too-frequently disappointing Olympic team. Television viewership is down 36 percent compared to the Salt Lake City games in 2002 - although it could get a significant bounce tonight as the women's figure skating competition begins.

CHARLIE WI felt a lot better walking off the golf course compared with his last round. Coming off a final round at Innisbrook in which he made a 13 on one hole, Wi hit an 8-iron over the water to 6 feet for birdie on the 18th for a 6-under 66, giving him a share of the lead with Jason Dufner on Thursday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Fla. Tiger Woods, a six-time champion at Bay Hill, shot a 69. In another tournament:...

ARIES MERRITT stunned Chinese great Liu Xiang in the 60-meter hurdles and the United States cemented a record gold-medal haul at the world indoor championships in Istanbul. "We psyched up everybody, including myself," said U.S. captain Bernard Lagat, who won his own gold in the 3,000. "We came together as a team. " The Americans' 10 golds were two better than the previous record. And several times, the toughest competition an American faced was another American. No other country had more than two golds.

Fred Funk went from wearing a pink skirt on the third hole to walking away with nearly all the money in the Skins Game yesterday in La Quinta, Calif. "Wow," Funk said in disbelief on the 18th green, where he won the final $550,000 and six skins, for a total of $925,000 and 15 skins in his first try. Funk had a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th, then clinched the record-setting victory when Tiger Woods missed an 8-foot birdie putt. Funk, 49, became the oldest Skins Game winner, and took all $700,000 available yesterday.

Sounds like 2006 all over again. Shani Davis stirred up another dispute with U.S. Speedskating over team pursuit just 2 days before the start of the Winter Olympics, saying he decided not to enter the event because he felt pressured to be part of the national program. Davis skates on his own without any financial support from the U.S. governing body, largely because of a testy relationship that seemed to be getting better. "I don't have any obligations to U.S. Speedskating.

Todd skipped the quad, yet soared to his sixth U.S. Figure Skating Championships title. Making it even sweeter, Todd Eldredge is headed for his third Olympics, hoping to grab the medal that has eluded him. Despite not attempting the quadruple jump that has been the bane of his otherwise brilliant career, Eldredge used surpassing artistry to beat defending champion Tim Goebel in Los Angeles last night. They were tied after the short program, but Eldredge won the free skate with his spins, footwork and just enough guts to pull off eight triple jumps.

Shani Davis and Maria Lamb won individual titles at the U.S. Long Track Allround Speedskating Championships yesterday in West Allis, Wis. Davis, who captured the title for the third straight year, won the 1,500 meters in 1 minute, 47.73 seconds, a Pettit National Ice Center record. Davis broke the old mark of 1:47.85 set by Norway's Adne Sondral in a World Cup meet in 2000. Chad Hedrick won the 10,000 in 13:43.28. But Davis, who finished second, edged him in points for the title.

THE OTHER DAY, Alpine skier Bode Miller came to the defense of a zealous and somewhat insensitive interviewer who brought up his late brother and made him cry on national television. The day before, two-time defending gold medalist Shani Davis placed much of the blame of his disappointing races in Sochi on himself, cooling at least temporarily the searing criticism of both the controversial new racing suits worn by the U.S. team, and USA Speedskating - which delivered them late and minus adequate testing.

Guan Tianlang of China won the Asia-Pacific Championship in Bangkok on Sunday, making the 14-year-old the youngest player to qualify for the Masters. Guan closed with a 1-under 71 at Amata Spring Country Club, needing a par on the 18th hole to beat Pan Cheng-tsung of Taiwan. Guan, an eighth grader who weighs 125 pounds, couldn't reach the par 4 in 2 shots. He chipped to five feet and made the putt. Guan will be the youngest player at Augusta National in April. He easily surpasses the mark set by Italy's Matteo Manassero , who was about to turn 17 when he played in 2010.

The Americans pulled one stunner in team pursuit, then another. When the upsets were done, Chad Hedrick was assured a fifth Olympic speedskating medal heading into retirement, and Jennifer Rodriguez had a shot at one more before she hangs up her blades. Hedrick, 32, teamed with three teenagers to lead the U.S. to a pair of victories yesterday in Richmond, British Columbia, including a shocker over Sven Kramer and the top-seeded Dutch in the semifinals. The Americans advanced to face Canada in today's final, which means Hedrick will capture gold or silver in the final race of his career.

VANCOUVER - It happened Wednesday. The 2010 Winter Olympics lit up like a slot machine and started spitting out medals for the United States. Lindsey Vonn, Shani Davis, and Shaun White won gold medals as the U.S. team won a record six total medals in a single day. The next day, Evan Lysacek took the first men's figure-skating gold for the U.S. team in a generation. Just like that, the brash, loud neighbors to the south had officially crashed Canada's long-planned coming-out party.

The controversies that follow Shani Davis never seem to catch up with him. Neither do his speedskating competitors. The first African American to win an individual Winter Games event four years ago, Davis repeated last night, his blistering finishing sprint giving him a second straight 1,000-meter gold medal. Korean Tae-Bum Mo, who had won the 500 earlier, was second. American Chad Hedrick, Davis' onetime antagonist, took the bronze. "Four years ago I was on the offensive," Davis said.
