AS KOBE AND SHAQ headed to the most stupid divorce in NBA history, it turns out that they had nothing on Carlos Boozer and his sports agent, Rob Pelinka. Gather round, friends - if you revel in scenarios that plummet the reputation of sports agents further down the food chain. By reneging on a good-faith deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for $41 million and instead accepting a $68 million deal with the Utah Jazz that they were only in position to negotiate thanks to Cleveland's trust, Boozer and Pelinka have done the unimaginable: They've made Alex Rodriguez and Scott Boras look like poster children for Athletes for the Ethical Treatment of Sports Team Owners.

Four years ago, Republican F. Vernon Boozer breezed unopposed to a new four-year state Senate term -- his popularity never questioned, even as a moderate in a conservative district.But Tuesday night, after 17 years in the upper chamber, Boozer, 63, lost the GOP primary for his 9th District central Baltimore County seat to a political opponent who had never run for public office.What happened? Some say nearly everything.Low turnout, complacency by Boozer, redistricting, gun control, abortion, needle exchanges and even Boozer's talent for dealing with General Assembly Democrats converged to boost Dr. Andrew Harris, an obstetric anesthesiologist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, to a 54 percent victory, observers say."

FACED WITH A CHOICE between ideological, right-wing leaders and conventional, middle-road Republicans, GOP officials in Maryland have wisely picked proven centrists to re-shape the party's Senate caucus.First, Republican senators unanimously elevated Sen. F. Vernon Boozer of Baltimore County to the post of minority leader, replacing the late Sen. John A. Cade. Then Anne Arundel County's Republican Central Committee overwhelmingly chose former county executive Robert R. Neall for Mr. Cade's vacant Senate seat.

Bulls forward Carlos Boozer has a broken right hand that will require surgery, and he is expected to be out eight weeks, the team announced Sunday. Boozer suffered the injury on Saturday during the Bulls' day off. According to team sources, Boozer tripped over a bag in his house and fell. The team says Boozer broke the fifth metacarpal bone in his hand. He was evaluated by team physician Brian Cole and hand specialist Marc Cohen . The Bulls signed the two-time All-Star forward to a five-year free-agent deal worth about $75 million this summer after missing out on LeBron James , Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh . Last season, Boozer posted 55 double-doubles, good for third in the league, and was one of just 10 players who averaged a double-double at 19.5 points and 11.2 rebounds in 78 games.

They lived in the same apartment complex as rookies and Christy even sold Boozer his Great Dane when they were in New York. Looking back on their seven years together, Christy remembered Boozer, the Hawks' powerful, record-breaking halfback, as an accessible star that was friendly to everyone … so long as any encounters took place off the field.

Klima, as an ineffective legislator and right-wing ideologue. Klima dismissed Boozer's criticism, suggesting he is bitter from his primary loss to Sen. Andrew P. Harris four years ago.

Veteran Baltimore County Republican state Sen. F. Vernon Boozer was knocked from his seat after nearly two decades last night by a conservative, anti-abortion physician who painted him as too liberal.The decisive loss in the 9th District was the most dramatic upset in yesterday's lightly attended primary elections, and the most bitter contest in the county this year, as evidenced by Boozer's concession speech last night."I'm not going to call my opponent. Normally I would. The stuff you read about crossed the lines -- needle exchange, partial birth abortions and the rest of the scurrilous stuff you read," Boozer told a shocked group of supporters at a somber Cockeysville banquet hall.

Halfway through its first season, Baltimore's amphibious boat tour attraction, Discovery Channel Ducks, is shy two boats and expected to fall short of projected ridership by as much as 40 percent. Production delays in refurbishing the World War II vintage Army vehicles that traverse both land and water have forced the Baltimore operation to make do with three boats rather than the promised fleet of at least five, according to Kathleen M. Boozer, general manager of the operation. That lack of equipment has limited daily ridership to 720. "We know now that we won't be able to reach projections," Boozer said.
