Believe it or not, some things are better left untouched by technology: "Monopoly" is one of them.Case in point is the new CD-ROM game, "Monopoly: World Cup France 98 Edition," now available from Hasbro (www.hasbro- interactive.com) for $30.Much in this classic game is the same - the object, the game rules, the four corner spaces and their functions. Victory still belongs to the player remaining after all other players have gone bankrupt.A lot is different, too. Most notably, the World Cup theme.

Maryland has pulled out of the Jimmy V Classic against Villanova on Dec. 8 because of "scheduling issues," according to a news release from ESPN. The Terps, who were replaced by Illinois, will take part in the event in 2016. Not playing Villanova takes a major opportunity at a Top 50 win off the table for the Terps, who are scheduled to play Virginia in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge at Comcast Center the week before and also have possible matchups against Iowa State and Arizona State at the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

"Corril Slayer" Developer: Pure Bang Games Platform: PC Score: 9/10 Fear is a primal and essential component to the human experience. Fear keeps us safe, alert and cautious. It also freaks the ever living hell out of us. “Corril Slayer,” an 8-bit-style throwback from Baltimore's Pure Bang Games, plays on fear in a masterfully accessible way. You see, “fear” and “horror” are two different things altogether. This reviewer checked out of horror back in 1999 when the first “Silent Hill” game was released.

They are college football's forgotten team in 2005, overshadowed by the 500-pound gorilla that sits atop their conference, uncertain about their bowl future when it comes to the Bowl Championship Series. Truth be told, how many of us know that Oregon is 10-1 and No. 8 in the country? The feeling around Eugene these days is not as bad as it was in 2001, when the Ducks finished No. 2 in the rankings after the regular season and had to watch undeserving Nebraska get demolished by Miami in the Rose Bowl in the BCS national championship game.

Some of the best games of the 100 played between Army and Navy: 1890: Navy 24, Army 0 WEST POINT, N.Y. -- This game was the first athletic competition in any sport between the academies. Cadet Dennis Michie (pronounced Mikey), although he had no permission, devised a plan to bring Navy to New York for a football game. Because his father was a professor at the academy, Michie used his influence to help gain the approval of the academic board and the superintendent. In the game, Red Emerich scored 20 of Navy's 24 points (touchdowns were worth four points)

DURHAM N.C. - More than most of the players on the Maryland men's basketball team, junior guard Dez Wells has a sense of the game's history as well as his own program's place in it. On Saturday night, he left Cameron Indoor Stadium after a 40-minute game that, even in defeat, put an exclamation point on what was of the sport's greatest rivalries. Wells and his teammates were upset that they had lost to Duke, 69-67, but understood that it was simply part of what made many of the Terps-Blue Devils games what are now commonly called “instant classics.” Wells is confident that this one will be recalled someday, too, even though it came in what has been an otherwise forgettable Maryland season.

A small piece from the rivalry in this year's NCAA women's lacrosse championship found its way to Towson's Johnny Unitas stadium, the site of Saturday evening's Under Armour Lacrosse Classic. A Maryland graduate and senior attacker from last season, Alex Aust was on one sideline coaching the South. Across from her was the North coach Kara Cannizarro, who led North Carolina with four goals in the 13-12 triple-overtime thriller over Aust and the Terps in May. And it was Cannizarro's group who came away victorious again as the North defeated the South, 18-16 in the high school showcase of girls lacrosse players.

The goal horn got quite the workout Saturday night. After 137 shots and 52 goals, the South prevailed, 28-24, against the North in the highest-scoring Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic ever. For 27 minutes, not much separated the two boys squads at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium. Back and forth they went, goal after goal. The teams were tied at 4 through one quarter. They were even at 8 with four minutes remaining in the second quarter. Neither team had led by more than one. Then the South bombarded the North with six goals in four minutes, a game-seizing onslaught that held up to give the South the victory.

"Don't be a stranger" -- Peggy Olson I went to a wedding a few weeks ago, and the conversation at my table, as it often does, turned to "Mad Men. " A few guests were very adamant about Season 5; "lackluster" and "disappointing" were the most commonly used words. I've been back and forth about this season, but have always thought there has been more good moments than bad. After last week's glaring misstep, I was getting worried. But tonight's beyond-excellent episode, which ranks right up there with episodes "The Suitcase" and "Shut the Door.
