Yesterday wasn't exactly the greatest day for the New Yor Giants of the NFL.For instance, things started going downhill when it was learned starting quarterback Phil Simms has a bad elbow and will miss at least one game.That means Jeff Hostetler is in the starting lineup and Simms may go on the inactive list.A while later, coach Ray Handley, not the most popular fellow with the press anyway, had a run-in with two photographers.To top it off, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, deemed by some as the best player at his position in football history, said he's calling it a career after this season.

WILLIAMSPORT -Catching his breath every few moments, Jim Adenhart explained to the hushed crowd that the greatest day of his life was when his 9-pound, 3-ounce baby boy was born. Then, in detail, he relayed his final conversation with his son last week, after Nick Adenhart had pitched the greatest game of his brief major league career. Father and son were in a hotel together in Southern California when the Los Angeles Angels rookie right-hander, 22, asked his father whether it was OK if he went out with friends for a little while to celebrate.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt thinks the winner of this weekend's Atlantic Coast Conference men's tournament will be more of a survivor. Maryland coach Gary Williams thinks this weekend will be a fan's dream. On paper, the ACC's featured gathering at Greensboro Coliseum looks like a special event in this, the league's last nine-team party. Each of the league's top five seeds is a Top 20 team. Just below them is sixth-seeded Maryland, which has beaten two of them and been involved in countless other close ACC contests.

SEVENTY-FIVE years ago today, at 11 o'clock on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the guns ceased their thunder, the earth stopped shuddering and an eerie silence descended on the Western Front. The world war (not yet known as World War I, of course) was over.The Baltimore Sun compared it to the seventh day when the Prophet Joshua marched seven times around the walls of Jericho until the walls came tumbling down:"It was a victory of the spirit that would never admit that might makes right or that brutality and savagery could triumph over humanity . . ."

Washington.-- On January 1, some people still shoot firecrackers, and most take the day off.With speeches, parades and aircraft flyovers, we celebrate Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, the birthdays of Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. We throw parties to mark events as silly as April Fool's Day, and we have just used forests of trees to commemorate the bombing of Pearl Harbor.Not one of those occasions is as important to Americans as today -- and not one in a hundred of us realizes why: On this day 200 years ago, the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution went into effect following ratification by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Henry Gunther of Baltimore died at one minute before the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - the last soldier killed in the four-year insanity of World War I. This Veterans Day 2008 marks 90 years since the armistice of 1918 and the deaths of Henry Gunther and nearly 3,000 other men - American, British, French, German - whose senseless loss in the final hours form the ultimate metaphor for the bloody lunacy of "the war to end all wars."...

YesterdayTrack: It was the greatest day in the history of U.S. Olympic track: five events, nine medals, four of them golds. Carl Lewis won a gold medal in the long jump -- his third gold medal in three Olympics. Dave Johnson was a study in courage, finishing third in the decathlon while competing on an ankle with a stress fracture. Kevin Young broke Edwin Moses' 9-year-old record in the 400 meter hurdlers. Gail Devers fell on her last hurdle and lost a certain gold. Gwen Torrence ran a race instead of her mouth as the United States won both the men's and women's 200 meters.

OK, so I was assigned to watch and blog about the "Jersey Shore" in Italy season premiere. While I initially believed this was a pointless assignment, I now take back those words. On tonight's episode, no fewer than 10 signs of the apocalypse were revealed.  10) Snooki shared her knowledge of European geography.  9) Snooki's dad volunteered to be a male stripper.  8) Eight of 10 Twitter trending topics in Baltimore were Jersey Shore related.  7) Snooki and Sammi decided to get fake breasts together.  6)

ISRAEL'S PAROLE BOARD put humanity above justice in paroling Alan Goodman on condition he leave the country for eight years. He had served 15 years of a life-plus-40-years sentence. Such convicts in Israel normally do not receive parole before 24 years.Politically, the Oct. 26 decision was harmful to Israel's peace with the Palestinians. It gave the impression that the Netanyahu government takes Palestinian life lightly. It was a snub to Palestinian sensibilities. This may not have been intended, but was achieved.
