TURIN, Italy -- This one was for the old guys, the group that ripped away the "chicken Swede" label their predecessors had born and proved that Swedes could win battles in the corners of an NHL rink and any corner of the world. It was for Mats Sundin, 35, the first European player chosen first overall in the NHL draft, in 1989. For Peter Forsberg, 32, who has given his spleen and his knee cartilage in service of his hockey career. For Nicklas Lidstrom, 35, a defenseman of quiet brilliance and big-game performances.

Passersby could count the number of protesters on one hand - literally - who showed up to sound off about the deadlock in the presidential race at a 1 p.m. rally at the Fallon Federal Building in downtown Baltimore yesterday. Christopher Forsberg, 32, and his wife, Cassandra, 25, of Mount Washington called the turnout "depressing" after they found they made up 40 percent of the rally, which was loosely organized through the Internet. "I think ramming [the results] through is not good for the country," said Christopher Forsberg, a Ralph Nader supporter whose sign, attached to a snow shovel, read "What is Bush Afraid Of?"

Two Philadelphia sports teams returned home last week. Despite wondrous performances by its nationally renowned star, the first split two games before tepid crowds. The second arrived in glory with the best record in its league and played before another guaranteed full house. And that's about how it has gone all season for the 76ers and Flyers in Baltimore's sports-crazed neighbor to the north. The Sixers boast one of the biggest national stars in Allen Iverson, but have struggled to break .500 and attract fans.
