One of the most debated topics throughout the WWE Universe is John Cena's character and the notion that many want him to turn heel. I think the term “heel” -- when talking about change that many want from John Cena -- is misleading. Before we explore the idea, let's first clearly define the term "heel. " At the very core, as many of you surely already know, a “heel” is someone the fans hate, a "bad guy. " JJ Dillon once told me in an interview a definition that I like to use -- someone that is not as good and/or talented as the “babyface” in the ring, so he needs to cheat to get the upper hand in a match.

The way things have gone this week in Baltimore, it would not be a tremendous surprise if news broke tomorrow that Francis Scott Key plagiarized "The Star-Spangled Banner. " Four days after the shocking Ray Rice elevator video placed Charm City in a very uncharming light , Major League Baseball announced on Friday that Orioles corner infielder  Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games after testing positive for an amphetamine. The suspension is a major blow to the Orioles, who are heading toward the postseason already without star players Manny Machado and Matt Wieters, and a second national embarrassment for a city that remains at the center of the NFL's domestic abuse scandal.

Vickie Guerrero uses words such as "quiet" and "homebody" to describe herself. She spends a good portion of her time at home in El Paso, Texas working in her scrapbook studio and hanging out with her 16-year-old daughter. However, the mere sight of this quiet homebody at Verizon Center Sunday night and 1st Mariner Arena Monday night is guaranteed to send thousands of spectators into a raucous frenzy of jeers. And she'll be loving every second of it. Guerrero, who performs as one of the vilest — and unlikeliest — villains in WWE, will be among the pro wrestling stars appearing Sunday at the Capitol Punishment pay-per-view in Washington and Monday at the Monday Night Raw broadcast in Baltimore.

The timing couldn't have been much worse for offensive tackle James Hurst when he broke his left leg during North Carolina's bowl game in late December. As a senior last season, Hurst was projected by draft analysts to land in either the second or third round, until he got hurt. Because of the injury, Hurst could not play in the Senior Bowl or participate in the NFL scouting combine. And he still wasn't 100 percent by his pro day workout this spring. If not for that unfortunate set of circumstances, Hurst probably would have been drafted instead of being signed to a free-agent deal by the Ravens this week.

Q: I jog regularly and play golf as often as I can. Recently, I've been feeling pain on the bottom of my heel. Any suggestions?A: You may have plantar fascitis, one of the most common injuries among recreational tennis players, golfers and joggers. Other, less frequent causes of pain on the bottom of the heel include a small crack in the heel bone, a pinched nerve or a swelling in the cushioning pad underneath the heel.The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that runs from your toes, along the bottom of your foot, and attaches to the bottom of your heel.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- You remember Mark McGwire.Big, redheaded guy, huge shoulders, could hit a ball farther than just about anybody not named Jose Canseco. Liked to bang forearms. Ask your granddad about him.Because after two frustrating, injury-hampered seasons, the Oakland first baseman is back hitting homers -- and doubles and singles, too. He'll face the Orioles' Kevin Brown, Mike Mussina and Arthur Rhodes in the three-game series that begins tonight.Foot and heel problems have forced him in and out of baseball so often that it's hard to believe he's only 31.On Sunday, McGwire extended his hitting streak to 18 games, and he's among the league leaders in homers, RBIs, on-base percentage and slugging percentage.

PURCHASE, N.Y. -- In fulfillment of pessimistic prophecies that Latrell Sprewell was bad news about to happen, the New York Knicks learned last night that their controversial new headliner will miss from three to six weeks of this 12-week NBA season with a stress fracture in his right heel.Team physician Norman Scott said that after X-rays and a CAT scan failed to show a break, an MRI late yesterday revealed a "microscopic fracture of the heel [calcaneus bone]." Scott said no surgery is required, but Sprewell will be fitted with a removable cast called a "walking boot."

With Russian troops amassed along its border and Kremlin-backed separatists in control of major cities in eastern Ukraine, the government in Kiev is facing the gravest threat to its survival since the breakup of the former Soviet Union a generation ago. Unless the U.S. and its allies can convince Russian President Vladimir Putin to step back from using the unrest there as a pretext for military intervention, it looks more likely than ever that eastern...

After No. 10 Johns Hopkins pulled within two goals of No. 6 North Carolina at 10-8 just 1 minute, 53 seconds into the fourth quarter Saturday, the Tar Heels' Joey Sankey hung up long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino in front of the net and stood behind the cage for about two minutes. Blue Jays fans screamed for a stalling call on Sankey, but officials - sticking to a recent rule change - did not assess the stall until Pellegrino stepped out of the crease. As the 30-second shot clock wound down to zero, Sankey scored off a pass from senior attackman Pat Foster (Boys' Latin)

They host a pair of ranked teams in No. 12 Albany and No. 7 Maryland the next two weeks.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- If progress is measured in small steps, infielder Jeff Reboulet has inched forward a little more. Projected as the Orioles' starting second baseman on Opening Day, Reboulet informed manager Ray Miller yesterday that his painful left heel had improved enough that he could appear in consecutive games. "He asked me about the situation, where we were at," Reboulet said. "We're moving along. I guess you have to start somewhere, right?" Reboulet started Monday's loss to the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie and "came out of it pretty good," Miller said.
