Time once again for "The Amazing Race," or as I called it last week, The Dream Crushing, Boyfriend Eliminating Hour of Depression. I've got something that will perk you up this week: Spain! Barcelona! Beaches! It's a magical place where even the demons and devils are happy. The Twins leave the previous Pit Stop at 2:55 a.m., which is the first middle-of-the-night departure time we've seen in a long time. They catch a 6 a.m. flight to Barcelona. The Chippendales get a 7:20 a.m. flight, and they mention that they don't know who the fourth team is, because they never saw them.

Cal Ripken Jr. likes to joke than he and Andre Agassi have a lot more in common than the fact that they're both bald, retired athletes. They're both passionate about raising money and creating opportunities to help kids reach their potential. In fact, Agassi is someone who has inspired Ripken in many ways during his retirement. Friday at the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation's 7th Annual Aspire Gala, the Orioles Hall of Famer sought to honor the tennis legend for his work in education, and at the same time raise money for his own charitable foundation.

Congratulations to the U.S. Davis Cup team for bringing the cup back from France by beating the Swiss team in the finals last weekend. (Congratulations, too, to the gallant Swiss, for getting to the finals and doing so well with a two-man team.)

If they weren't who they are, I'd doubt they could do it, and I'd roll my eyes when I heard quotes such as, "It's going to change what people strive for when they become pro athletes. It'll change how people think about pro athletes." At first, Athletes for Hope seemed like another one of those concepts that sounded nice but probably wouldn't succeed. Its mission is to help athletes make better contributions to their communities and to match corporations and volunteers with civic-minded athletes.

NEW YORK -- For 21 years at the U.S. Open, he had left them cheering. Yesterday, Andre Agassi left them crying. Standing and crying, no less. The inevitable had happened. At age 36, he was playing in his last pro tennis tournament. He had won here twice during a career that made him rich, famous and, in the latter years, a sort of legendary ambassador of good sport and good will. He came here with a disc injury in his back that would have most grown men crying for their mommies. Despite that, he had won first- and second-round thrillers, both long and physically taxing matches.

WASHINGTON -- Andre Agassi sat in a comfortable chair inside a white tent at the William H.G. Fitzgerald Tennis Center yesterday afternoon with sweat sliding down the side of his face. The white-hot sun combined with the bright lights of a dozen television cameras made the setting less than comfortable for the sport's veteran star, who is retiring after the coming U.S. Open. But Agassi, his clean-shaven head glistening, showed no sign that he even noticed, as he patiently answered questions about his career and his last appearance at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, a tournament he has won five times in 16 previous appearances.
