Tony Soprano lives. But for how much longer? In a provocative ending sure to be loudly debated for days, HBO's The Sopranos concluded its six-season run last night leaving viewers up in the air as to the fate of the New Jersey crime boss. The final scene featured Tony (James Gandolfini), his wife, Carmela (Edie Falco), and son, A.J. (Robert Iler), in a restaurant where they were about to be joined by the last member of their family, daughter Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), when the screen went black and the credits started to roll.

PHOENIX -- When Connecticut's Kevin Freeman grabbed the bounding ball and flung it high toward the America West Arena rafters, frustration and the burdens of high expectations went with it. Connecticut can dance. And smile. And proudly wear the look of a team that just reached the other side.It is over. The underachieving label for Connecticut; the season, the dream for Gonzaga. Connecticut tripped Gonzaga, 67-62, yesterday in a doozy of a game in the West Regional final. And now Connecticut (32-2)

The man who won $2.5 million playing Jeopardy! was finally tripped up by a question about taxes. Ken Jennings' record-breaking run as Jeopardy! champion came to an end last night, when the boy wonder who seemed invincible missed two Daily Doubles and then incorrectly answered the Final Jeopardy clue. The audience gasped, but Jennings held himself together and offered a wide, maybe even relieved grin. The ending was anti-climactic in a way, since the news had been all over the Internet since Monday, including an audio clip of Jennings' final Final Jeopardy.

NEW YORK - In 20 years of playing tennis at the U.S. Open, so much has changed for Andre Agassi - his clothes, his hair, his attitude, his wives. In many respects, the world has watched him grow up and now grow old here, watched him evolve from a cocky, brash teenager into a philosophical family man. But over the course of so many Septembers, one thing about Agassi has never changed. His face, and especially his eyes, have never been good at helping him hide his emotions. This is especially true in big moments, in both good times and bad, and as a result, one needed only to look at Agassi's face yesterday to understand his match against Roger Federer in the U.S. Open men's singles final.

LAS VEGAS - Anne Arundel accountant-cum-poker phenom Steve Dannenmann has a seat at the table. That's the final table. The one that began last night at the World Series of Poker's main event in Las Vegas and where the winner gets $7.5 million. The marathon No-Limit Texas Hold 'em World Championship began nine days ago and has claimed most of the game's greatest players, sometimes with cruel turns. On Thursday after the 5,619-player field had been reduced to 27, defending champion Greg Raymer was bounced in 25th place when his pocket kings were beaten by a flush on the final card.

INDIANAPOLIS - The mistakes came early and late. Steve Smith fumbled the first pass Joe Flacco threw. Torrey Smith dropped the last one, a sideline opportunity that would have kept the Ravens' comeback hopes alive, if only for a little longer. In between, the Ravens defense accomplished much of what they wanted against the NFL's highest-scoring team, only to watch their own offense falter repeatedly. A 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts before an announced crowd of 65,258 at Lucas Oil Stadium was a definite missed opportunity for the Ravens, who did all the things that they avoided doing during their three-game winning streak.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis waited nine seasons, 1,365 games and 5,966 plate appearances for his first postseason at-bat. The 30-year-old admits he was rather nervous when he stepped to the plate around 6 p.m. Thursday before a soldout, screaming, orange-towel waving crowd at Camden Yards. “Absolutely, I'd be lying if I told you no,” Markakis said. “That is part of the game, part of the job. It's a matter of controlling your emotions and staying within yourself on the big stage.” Markakis watched three pitches, two balls and a strike, before taking his first hack, smacking a 93-mph fastball from Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer straight back to center field for his first postseason single - and the Orioles' first hit of the 2014 playoffs.

We are going to get the bar going a lot in the next few weeks. There will be lots of things to discuss. Lots of predictions for you to share. Much has been made about what the Orioles' roster for the American League Division Series will look like. I'd imagine we'll know at some point today, though Buck Showalter doesn't have to submit it until Thursday morning. Honestly, I think it's pretty set. To me there are only two spots that are unclear. That's because I believe Kelly Johnson, T.J. McFarland and David Lough are going to make the roster.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series.

But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.

TORONTO - We've reached the final game of the regular season, and we still don't know the Orioles' opponent in the American League Division Series. Both the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals lost Saturday night, so Detroit goes into the final day of the regular season with a one-game lead. If the Royals win and the Tigers lose today, the teams will play a Game 163 on Monday to determine the AL Central winner.  Before you ask, we also still don't know the start time for the first two games of the ALDS at Camden Yards.

Yesterday is a day that Mathieu Therres will not soon forget. The Dundalk native had barely advanced to last night's AST Dew Tour Panasonic Open skateboard park final , finishing last among 12 qualifiers Thursday night. To say he stepped up his game in the finals would be an understatement. Therres, 21, finished fifth after an impressive performance in front of a rowdy crowd at the Camden Yards sports complex. Therres, who goes by the nickname "Gumbie," was as surprised as anyone that he did so well.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter plans to give his relievers some work on Saturday and Sunday, with a three-day layoff looming before the playoffs start, so it's unclear how deep Gonzalez will go. “Obviously, Toronto will have something to say about that, but it won't be a normal outing,” Showalter said....

NEW YORK - When the Yankee Stadium crowd began chanting New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's name after his final at-bat Wednesday after a routine groundout - trying to coax the future Hall of Famer out of the dugout - Orioles manager Buck Showalter knew it wasn't happening. It wasn't the right time. “He had a tough at-bat, a ground ball back to the pitcher,” Showalter said, “I told a couple of our guys, 'He ain't coming out of the dugout. Just watch.' That's all you need to know about Derek because it didn't fit in the context of what was [happening]
