WHAT WERE they thinking? Is the U.S. Olympic Committee, and conspirator Ralph Lauren, so clueless of American consciousness that they didn't know producing USOC-authorized gear in China would be a gut-punch to most Americans? When it was learned the "Made in China" label would be found in the Team USA apparel in the opening and closing ceremonies, it even awakened the dwarfs in Congress, creating a rare bipartisan moment when zany opposites such as Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner would blast away at the same target.

Even though he was released just before leaving for the Goodwill Games, Upper Dublin grad and University of Richmond junior Sean Gavaghan has no regrets about spending part of his summer as a pitcher for Team USA. "It was a bittersweet experience," Gavaghan said . "I would have loved going to the Goodwill Games because the team was just really starting to come together. But at the same time, it was a very tiring schedule. We were either playing or traveling every day. I felt like I got a fair chance to pitch, but I was happy to be home, too. " While playing for Team USA, an Olympic development squad sponsored by the United States Amateur Baseball Federation and based in Millington, Tenn.

THIS IS NOT the final passenger list. It's more like the 30 guys who got called to the gate to see whether their names will be selected off the standby list. Some guys have no doubts they will be in first class, others are pretty sure they are booked for coach, and about five to seven will be sweating bullets for a little bit longer, while USA national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann determines who will make the final 23-man World Cup roster that must be submitted to FIFA by June 2. For now, however, being among the 30 players invited to the pre-World Cup Camp that begins tomorrow at Stanford University means you still have a shot at making the roster for the trip to Brazil and the 2014 World Cup. That will make for an interesting stay in Palo Alto, Calif., as there is time for players to perform their way onto and off the USA final roster.

The members of Team USA, many of whom were making their outdoor season debut in a year in which they hope to end up in Rio de Janeiro performing at the Olympics, came through Saturday with five wins out of six races in the Penn Relays' USA vs. the World competition at Franklin Field. Fair or not, most of the attention on the 17th annual program featuring the world's top professional sprinters focused on the race the United States did not win - the men's 4x100 meters, where No. 3 runner Tyson Gay and anchor Isiah Young could not get together on the race's final baton exchange.

Clark Donatelli was anxious. He had just gone through a torturous practice at the old Olympic ice hockey rink in Lake Placid, N.Y., but his motor was still running in high gear. Donatelli is like that. He chatters. He cackles. Need to find him? Follow the noise. He was the acting captain for much of Team USA's tuneup tour, and it's easy to see why. The guy is definitely intense. He is also proud, and, after four long years, he's tired of defending the underachieving 1988 U.S. Olympic team.

The Haverford School, last year's undefeated and consensus No. 1 team in the nation, had three players selected to the U.S. men's under-19 national lacrosse team. The Fords, who finished 26-0 last season, are the only high school in the nation to have three players on Team USA. In all, five Philadelphia-area lacrosse players were selected to the 25-player team. Current senior midfielder Dox Aitken, who has committed to Virginia, and former Fords defenseman Noah Lejman, now at Penn, and midfielder Drew Supinski, now at Johns Hopkins, are to represent the defending Inter-Ac champions on the national team.

MANHEIM, Pa. - Spectators arriving for last week's finale of a three-game women's field hockey series between Team USA and visiting Chile were met by the pungent scent of manure from the farms surrounding the Spooky Nook Sports complex, a facility as massive as it is both oddly named and located. But by the time those fans had made the long trek through the 700,000-square-foot facility, which its operators claim is America's largest indoor sports center, and reached the outdoor hockey field's grandstands, the aroma had vanished.

The intense spotlight of the NCAA tournament can swallow up even the best freshmen unaccustomed to playing in such pressure-packed games when an error can end a season. It had to be even hotter for Villanova freshmen Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges given all that was on the line for the Wildcats last weekend in Brooklyn. For Brunson and Bridges, however, their coolness in the heat was noticeable. The first two rounds for them merely came down to next game, next game. Now it's on to the Sweet 16 in Louisville, Ky., and a South Regional semifinal against Miami, which is - you guessed it - next game.

TORONTO - Being a part of Rising Star Challenge on Friday night was nice. But 76ers post players Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor view the experience as a stepping-stone to where they want to be: playing in an actual NBA All-Star Game. "Depending on how hard you work will depend on how soon you get there," Noel said. For now, the duo will have to settle for being recognized as two of the league's top young American-born players. The game at the Air Canada Centre featured first and second-year players from the United States against a team consisting of first- and second-year players from around the rest of the world.

DREXEL The Dragons had high hopes for Ahmad Fields, but the 6-foot-5 sophomore wing has played only three games because of a knee injury. A transfer from Utah who sat out last season, Fields played in the opener, missed 10 games, played two more, and has been idle since seeing 18 minutes in a Jan. 2 loss to Elon. Coach Bruiser Flint said that Fields won't be redshirting this year, and he hopes Fields will be back at some point. The Dragons have missed him. "We thought he would be a big part of things," Flint said.

UNION MAJORITY owner Jay Sugarman said he was not necessarily out to please his fan base when he hired former U.S. national team player Earnie Stewart on Monday to be the team's sporting director. But having a person with a high national and international profile for creating success doesn't hurt. "We certainly hope the fans embrace Earnie," Sugarman said of the man who will take control of the Union effective Jan. 1.

REVENGE WAS always the easy narrative for the United States at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. When the tournament started a month ago, Team USA had no guarantee that it would make the final, much less face Japan, the team that beat it for the title four years ago. With powerhouse teams like Germany, France, Brazil and Sweden in the field, a rematch of the 2011 final was not something many would have counted on. Ultimately, however, there...
