Every step brings pain as the stooped man totters across the tiny apartment. Han Chang-wha, 77, used to be extraordinarily fit. His life was once all about soccer. His life now is all about survival. Han played on Korea's first World Cup team in 1954 in Switzerland; he is one of five surviving members from that squad. But 48 years later, nobody seems to remember him, including his government. After his playing career ended, Han coached amateur soccer teams for six or seven years, and then took a staff position with the amateur league.

Young Caitlyn McFadden regularly sat quietly and obediently in class, one elementary school teacher observed. Just once, though, she wanted to see her student, a future Maryland lacrosse star, let loose. “I remember something her fourth-grade teacher said to me once,” said McFadden's mother, Mary Clare “M.C.” McFadden. “'I wish she would just get up and run down the hall screaming!'” But that sort of behavior never has been in McFadden's character. As the midfielder makes her second Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup appearance with Team USA when it opens play Thursday against England in Oshawa, Ontario, McFadden's coaches from her decorated career say subtlety is her most notable trait.

The U.S. women's national lacrosse team is glad to have Cookie on their side. After the squad's practice Monday morning at the UMBC Soccer Stadium in preparation for the Federation of International Lacrosse Women's World Cup, which begins next week in Oshawa, Ontario, it's easy to see why. Cookie is a menacing presence. At 5 feet 10, Cookie - also known as Kristen Carr - is the tallest player on the American squad, towering over her teammates by an average of about five inches.

Some prominent name is about to get left out. More than one, really. It might be Paul Casey or Luke Donald, even though both are ranked among the world's top 10 golf practitioners. It could be Justin Rose. Or Miguel Angel Jimenez. Or Edoardo Molinari. All have won big tournaments in the last three months. Could it possibly be three-time major winner Padraig Harrington? Certainly you can all but write off Sergio Garcia. "It's a headache," European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie said recently.

FedEx should hold fate Jeff Shain Orlando Sentinel It depends on how Tiger Woods performs at the FedEx Cup playoff opener in two weeks. If he can't play his way into the second event — he'll need to make up at least eight places in the standings — then his troubles are too many for my risk/reward meter. Woods hasn't had a top-20 finish since tying for fourth at the U.S. Open. Meanwhile, here's a list of Americans with at least three top-20s in that span who aren't on the roster: Nick Watney, Sean O'Hair, J.B. Holmes, Ryan Moore, Vaughn Taylor, Matt Bettencourt.

At least not for those still in the running for this year's U.S. Ryder Cup team.It will also have to do with who earns the last of 10 automatic spots for the 12-man team going to Valderrama in Spain next month, and who puts himself into contention or eliminates himself from consideration as one of captain Tom Kite's two picks.Kite will introduce his choices at a news conference here tomorrow.

Same song and dance George Diaz Orlando Sentinel I would take everyone to see "Les Misérables," because, after all, aren't the French a bunch of pathetic, miserable boors? I'm just a rubbernecker at this point, so I have no idea how an implosion of this magnitude can happen. But I suggest that the French soccer federation folks are walking around their offices as emperors with no clothes. They've hired a coach no one wants to play for and who will be fired as soon as France is eliminated from the World Cup — quite possibly today when the French face host nation South Africa.

Who says drinking games can't be taken seriously? Flip cup, a game typically played in college frat houses, steps into the limelight Saturday when the Recher Theatre hosts the annual World Series of Flip Cup. Flip cup is an international sport, apparently. Now in its fifth year, the World Series of Flip Cup is a chance for aficionados to showcase their drinking- game prowess. In the game, teams of six players compete to see who can chug a cup filled with beer or water, set it on the edge of the table upside down and flip it upright with one hand.
