SAN DIEGO -- With seconds ticking down to the start of Race 3 yesterday, as Paul Cayard tacked around to try to pin New Zealand early over the line, he made an urgent cry to his port trimmer:"Speed, Bill! Speed!"It was a dramatic moment for Cayard and both teams as they fought one of the toughest prestart duels yet in the America's Cup.But less than half an hour later, it was as clear as it had been in the two previous races: "Speed" is an element that the Young America boat just cannot deliver to Cayard and his crew.

For Edward Norton making movies isn't just about giving a dynamite performance. It's about collaborating on a piece of entertainment that reflects his view of the world — and pulls that off without preaching to the audience. He leaped into stardom just 14 years ago as a choirboy accused of murder in the tricky thriller "Primal Fear. " But he set the tone of his career with 1999's "Fight Club," in which alienated Gen Xers got in touch with their inner primates via bare-knuckled scraps.

There's embarrassment and shame in this admission, but you need to know: We forgot about Woody Sauldsberry. He was the NBA's Rookie of the Year in 1958, just the second black man to win the award. He played for four NBA teams and later the Harlem Globetrotters. Retirement wasn't always easy. Diabetes claimed one of his legs and had its sights set on the other. When Sauldsberry died last year in Baltimore, there was no obituary in the next day's newspaper and no old highlights aired on that night's SportsCenter.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Wonder why, for the first time in 149 years, there was no American boat in the America's Cup race here? Look no further than bearded, California yachting guru Doug Peterson. Described in the official race program as "the hottest America's Cup designer," he has almost single-handedly scuttled U.S. chances in the past two Cup competitions. First, he was a lead designer of the New Zealand boat, Black Magic, that brought the Cup to Auckland in 1995 by defeating veteran U.S. skipper Dennis Conner, 5-0, in San Diego.

TURIN, Italy-- --I clutched the baseball jersey in my hand and looked at the manhole cover near my feet. All around me, cars were zipping by without a second thought to what I was doing, how I was altering the course of history, how I was saving the Orioles' franchise from ruin. I paused for a bit and let it all sink in. The rain was still coming down, rolling off my head and finding the cracks in the ground. These cracks formed small streams, and they all funneled to the same place just a few inches from my soaked feet - the Gates of Hell.

You may think I'm crazy for saying this, but you can almost see the music coming out the speakers on this record. It's like a movie," says Diego Garcia, the lead singer and chief songwriter for Elefant. Calling from a tour stop in Gainesville, Fla., the artist is talking about The Black Magic Show, the latest and second album by the New Wave-influenced New York quartet. Elefant, which plays the Ottobar on Tuesday, achieves a more atmospheric sound on the new CD. The production, overseen by Don Gilmore, who has worked with Linkin Park and Avril Lavigne, is fuller than that on the group's well-received 2003 debut, Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid.
