It was breakfast time, and Iowa Hawkeyes defensive coordinator Norm Parker sat at a table trying to explain the challenge of stopping Georgia Tech's triple option. Parker waved his cup of morning coffee. "This is the quarterback," he said. He grabbed a jug of orange juice. "That's the fullback," he said. An empty glass became a defensive end, and a water bottle became a linebacker. Soon Parker was pushing the containers around, trying to contain the Yellow Jackets.

THE CELTICS relied on their veterans to help them win the matchup of the NBA's two hottest teams. Paul Pierce had 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists and the Celtics extended their winning streak to seven games with a 118-114 triple-overtime victory over the visiting Nuggets on Sunday. Boston's win also ended Denver's winning streak at nine games. Pierce made a tying three-pointer in the second OT to make it 107-107 and extend the game. "I mean, that's what great players do. I would love to tell you I had something to do with it," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said.

CHRIS McNEAL freely admits he was always a pretty bad shooter. He cannot offer, however, stories about games when he missed maybe 11 of 13 attempts or thumped three-pointers off the sides or top of backboards. "Since I wasn't good at threes, I hardly ever took them," he said. "Almost all my shots came off drives. " McNeal, a 6-1 junior, is now a starting wing guard for Episcopal Academy's basketball team and Saturday at Neumann University he drained five of seven shots from beyond the arc as the Churchmen bested Malvern Prep, 64-47, in the opening game of the Inter-Ac's annual let's-get-the-league-play-started-party called the Dan Dougherty Tripleheader.

Federal officials warned this week that "nightmare bacteria" - including the deadly superbug that struck a National Institutes of Health facility two years ago - are increasingly resistant to even the strongest antibiotics, posing a growing threat to hospitals and nursing homes nationwide. "It's not often that our scientists come to me and say we have a very serious problem and we need to sound an alarm," Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told a news conference Tuesday.

Melissa Kelly certainly doesn't look threatening. She's barely 5-foot-4, so it might be easy to take her lightly as a softball player. But then the game begins, and Kelly becomes a threat. A threat at the plate, a threat on defense, and an unbelievable threat on the base paths. A sophomore, Kelly did not have a spot on the Norristown varsity when the season began. The Eagles opened at the Perkiomen Valley tournament March 18. That day, Kelly was one of three players who had been on the junior varsity last season who were brought along so coach Jim McCarthy could see them in game situations.

Training discipline for throwing the shot, the javelin or the discus? How about appearing in Swan Lake? Oxford senior Irish McGhee - the Hornets' triple threat in track and field's throwing events - credits her training in ballet and gymnastics with her success in the throws. "The technique is comparable to ballet and gymnastics," she said. "Balance is everything. You have to stay under control. Your agility is very important. You have to be tight with your body and move gracefully.

Former Eagles quarterback King Hill, 75, who after an all-American career at Rice spent 12 years in the NFL, mostly as a backup, died Saturday of cancer, according to the Houston Chronicle. Mr. Hill, who was known as a triple threat, had two interceptions playing safety, scored the tying touchdown, and kicked the winning extra point when Rice ended No. 1 Alabama's 19-game winning streak with a 7-6 victory Nov. 16, 1957. The Chicago Cardinals drafted him No. 1 overall in 1958, and he was acquired by the Eagles in 1961.

Personally, I find it puzzling to call cheerleading anything but a sport. It requires strength, stamina, coordination, gymnastic skills and the grace of a classical dancer. It's hard work, baby. To be a pro, you need intelligence, beauty and exceptional athleticism - plus dedication, determination and discipline. Just ask Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Michaelaann Guaracini. New to the 38-member squad, the 22-year-old Vineland, N.J., native was a cheerleader at Villanova University until she graduated last spring.

WHENEVER HE WANTED John Mellencamp. Mercury. It's a shame John Cougar Mellencamp isn't an idiot. At his disposal is everything he would have needed to sustain a career as a likeable dunce. He can blam out scores of catchy, re-tread Stones riffs, scribble lots of cheeky lyrics about the joys of pounding the Posturepedic. Unfortunately, Mellencamp has a brain. So for the last eight years (and four albums) he has forsaken his possible career path as another Bryan Adams, and opted to pitch himself as a serious-minded triple threat: World Observer, Life Chronicler and Hayseed Advocate Extraordinaire.

CHEERLEADING isn't a sport and cheerleaders aren't athletes, right? Aren't they just a bunch of cute girls with hot bodies, shaking their butts and setting women back a hundred years by reinforcing gender stereotypes? Personally, I find it puzzling to call cheerleading anything but a sport. It requires strength, stamina, coordination, gymnastic skills and the grace of a classical dancer. It's hard work, baby. To be a pro, you need intelligence, beauty and exceptional athleticism - plus dedication, determination and discipline.

SO FAR THIS WEEK, President Obama has been called potentially "worse than Nixon" on freedom of the press issues, been accused of running an administration guilty of "outrageous, totally inexcusable" conduct, and has endured calls for the proverbial head of his handpicked attorney general, Eric Holder. Rush Limbaugh's at it again? Not exactly. During arguably the worst news cycle of his 52 months in the Oval Office, Obama suffered those verbal broadsides from liberal commentators and journalists such as the lawyer in the 1971 Pentagon Papers leak case and from Carl Bernstein, the reporter who helped break open Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal.

When his career was still in its formative stages, Wallace Bentley Hussong had a choice between Freud and football. He opted for the couch, and practiced psychoanalysis in Camden County for nearly a half-century. Dr. Hussong, 93, of Merchantville, died Tuesday, Feb. 19, at his home, having never taken the road measured in yard lines. But from high school through college, the semipro Camden Zuni Indians, and an Eagles practice squad, he was a triple threat - quarterback, receiver, and kicker.

I'LL HAVE ANOTHER got post 19 of 20 in the Kentucky Derby and 9 of 11 in the Preakness. Completing the outside, away-from-traffic posts, the colt going for the Triple Crown on Saturday in the Belmont Stakes drew post 11 of 12 Wednesday morning. "Being in the 11-hole, we're able to see how the pace sets up," trainer Doug O'Neill said. "If they're crawling, we'll be hopefully leading the crawl. And if they're flying, we'll be sitting in behind the horses flying. " I'll Have Another was made the 4-5 morning line favorite.
