Juan Calcagno was hoping that one of his favorite players, Argentine striker Carlos Tevez, would be coming to Baltimore on Saturday with Manchester City to play Inter Milan at M&T Bank Stadium. But Tevez is at home, resting after Argentina's run to the World Cup quarterfinals earlier this month in South Africa. Though disappointed that his countryman won't be playing, Calcagno is planning on driving up from Bethesda with his son, Santino, to see the game. "My 6-year-old got totally crazy about this World Cup. He didn't know anything about the game before that.

Organizers will announce Friday at 10 a.m. that Manchester City from the English Premier League will face Inter Milan of Italy's Serie A League in a friendly soccer match July 31 at M&T Bank Stadium. The announcement of the event was delayed earlier this week. The game will be played less than three weeks after the end of the World Cup in South Africa. Last July, AC Milan played Chelsea at M&T Bank Stadium before a sold-out crowd of 71,000. Soon after, a $100,000 feasibility study to examine the financial viability of building a soccer stadium in Baltimore was approved.

SOTOGRANDE, Spain -- They were either unknown in the United States, untested in the Ryder Cup or both. But apparently the rookies on this year's European team at Valderrama Golf Club are undaunted, underrated or both.Whatever the reason, they have greatly outplayed their American counterparts in the 32nd Ryder Cup.Through the matches completed before play was suspended by darkness last night, the European rookies were a combined 5-1-2 compared with 2-5-1 for the Americans playing in their first Ryder Cup. They have played a big part in Europe taking a 9-4 lead.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Corey Pavin has long built his reputation as golf's little big man, the scrawny guy with the huge heart, a player whose toughness more than equaled his talents.After what happened this summer at Shinnecock Hills on the final hole of the U.S. Open, and after what happened yesterday here at Oak Hill at a crucial moment of the 31st Ryder Cup, Pavin is building something else.His legacy.His 18-foot, downhill chip-in for birdie from the rough behind the 18th hole ended a tense, 5 3/4 -hour struggle with Nick Faldo and Bernhard Langer in the day's final match, giving Pavin and Loren Roberts a dramatic 1-up victory.

SOTOGRANDE, Spain -- The predictions of a rout in the 32nd Ryder Cup at Valderrama Golf Club are coming true. There is one minor hitch: The highly favored U.S. team finds itself on the wrong end of this potential blowout.After finishing the rain-delayed and darkness-suspended Friday matches yesterday morning trailing by a point, the Americans unraveled like the inside of an old golf ball in the fourball matches and continued their surprising free fall in the foursome matches later in the day.The result was a shocking 9-4 deficit of those matches completed, meaning that the U.S. team must win 10 1/2 of the remaining 15 points between the three matches that were not finished last night because of darkness forced by an earlier rain delay and the 12 singles matches scheduled for today.

STRAFFAN, Ireland -- As far as Ryder Cup celebrations go, the one the European team staged yesterday at The K Club was hardly a model of restraint. Not that it mattered, of course. Sergio Garcia flipped his visor backward and emptied an entire bottle of champagne over his head. Henrik Stenson donned a fluffy green and white wig. His shirt soaked with champagne, Padraig Harrington draped himself in an Irish flag and waved it to the crowd. Paul Casey and Robert Karlsson clinked their magnums of champagne together and showered each other with the stuff.

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The European team has come a long way since winning its first Ryder Cup in 1985. Not only did the team that arrived last week as underdog leave again with the gleaming gold trophy, but it also found a place in the record books. With an 18 1/2 -9 1/2 victory yesterday in the 35th Ryder Cup over an American team that was as uninspired as it was overrated, the Europeans equaled the mark for the largest point differential since the competition expanded beyond Great Britain and Ireland in 1979.

SOTOGRANDE, Spain -- They took different roads to get there. The Americans used their entire 12-man roster. The Europeans changed one golfer from the morning four-ball to the afternoon foursomes.In the end, they wound up in the same place yesterday after the first day of the 32nd Ryder Cup, dead even at three matches each and dead tired after a long adventure at the Valderrama Golf Club."It's been a long day," European captain Seve Ballesteros said. He was weary but certainly not disappointed by the way the competition turned out.It began with a 100-minute delay brought on by a torrential morning storm that was the first rain the Costa del Sol has seen in three months and the first recorded September precipitation in a decade.
