A Friday night celebration had a nice ring to it for the Loyola men's lacrosse team. One with 34 jewels, in fact. The Greyhounds received their NCAA championship rings Friday for beating Maryland, 9-3, on May 28 in Foxborough, Mass. In addition to the jewels, the bands feature a large Loyola "L" in the middle. "This is an opportunity tonight to remember the journey this team went on," coach Charley Toomey said before presenting the rings. "This is a time to remember the successful team this was. " The Greyhounds handed out team awards before the ring ceremony.

He was one cog in the Ravens' wheel of fortune, a role player who fit nicely on the most grudging defense in NFL history. Robert Bailey played one season in Baltimore and helped the Ravens win a championship. The team's nickel back - the fifth defensive back inserted on obvious passing downs - Bailey recovered a fumble in a 34-7 victory over the New York Giants in the Super Bowl in January 2001. Earlier, in the Ravens' AFC title game victory over the Oakland Raiders, he intercepted a pass.

8 p.m. [ESPN] You can be cynical and make a joke about how Paul Pierce (right) was crying when the Celtics got their championship rings because his was a size too small and it was hurting his finger. Or you can appreciate just how much the NBA title meant to him and how he's going to let the likes of Chicago rookie Derrick Rose know that he fully intends to raise another banner in Boston.

Tom Marechek collects national lacrosse championship rings the way some people collect baseball cards. "I have a nice little shelf in my little trophy room that has 11 national championship rings on it," said the high-scoring Bayhawks attackman. "Not a bad collection, huh? The only reason why I'm playing is to win championships. I love championships. I just love it. I'm very competitive. I love competition." This weekend in Boston, Marechek will be out to put championship ring No. 12 on that neat little shelf as the Bayhawks (10-2)

Believe in Magic Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel Kobe Bryant is great but hardly the greatest Laker of all time. The title has to come from the Showtime era because that always will symbolize the franchise. Magic Johnson is No. 1 on this list. He redefined the point-guard position, brought Hollywood to basketball and is still the face of the organization. Most important, Johnson always will be more beloved by fans in Los Angeles than Bryant.

WASHINGTON - On paper, those guys wearing the purple and gold uniforms certainly look like the Los Angeles Lakers and, goodness knows, they have the gaudy championship rings - three of them - to suggest they are the genuine article. But through the first week of the new season, these Lakers, who arrive in Washington for their annual meeting with the Wizards tonight, don't much resemble the team that laid waste to the NBA the last three years. The proof of that lies in the fact that Los Angeles, which lost its first two games of the season for the first time since 1990, was actually beaten the other night by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

PHILADELPHIA - The last domino hits the table with a loud clack, and boyish baseball prodigy Miguel Cabrera bursts out of his seat to celebrate a winning play. Two teammates laugh at his enthusiasm. Another stalks away, feigning anger in defeat, only to return moments later to start another game. It is three hours until first pitch, and baseball's next big thing is throwing his weight around the Florida Marlins' clubhouse, but it's not what you think. The 21-year- old slugger already is on the brink of superstardom.

Colts legend Art Donovan never thought he'd get his ring back. The cherished keepsake of the 1958 NFL championship game — often called "the greatest game ever played" — was stolen from a Hong Kong hotel room in 1977. Donovan assumed it was gone forever. But 34 years later, the ring has been returned to its rightful owner after it showed up for sale on the Internet. A Howard County police detective followed up on a tip and found the ring, engraved with the defensive tackle's name and jersey number, listed for $25,000 on Craigslist.

LOS ANGELES — LeBron James was the king. The injured, hobbled Kobe Bryant was merely a member of his court. James received his second consecutive MVP trophy a week after Bryant scored 12 points in a playoff game against the Thunder, his lowest postseason output in six years. He looked like a guy who had logged more than 44,000 minutes in more than 1,200 games. Fast forward to now, an NBA reality check in which the Cavaliers have been eliminated and Bryant is four victories from his fifth NBA championship while playing some of the best basketball of his career.
