Asked last spring why he was leaving the business world and returning to hockey, Herb Brooks reportedly said, "There's only so much toilet paper you can sell."Though Brooks now says the quote is a little more colorful than his actual words, it's a line that might be repeated often if his new job as coach of the American Hockey League's Utica Devils becomes his springboard back to the NHL.Or it might fade into oblivion, as did this former legend in the making when his coaching career stalled after he was fired by the New York Rangers and Minnesota North Stars.

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - Coach Herb Brooks said he was seeking a basketball-like transition game from the U.S. men's hockey team. Last night, he got the Los Angeles Lakers. Given the open ice of the international game (15 feet wider than the NHL) and Olympic rules that allow long passes, Brooks was in his element. The coach of the 1980 USA gold-medal Olympic team, Brooks made his return behind the Olympic bench look like a solid choice in a 6-0 victory over Finland at the E Center. It was only a pool play game that will be used for seeding purposes when the tournament moves to the "playoff round."

It's no surprise to find a doctor at the golf course ... except if it's midnight New Year's Eve. Yet, that was Dr. Ant Gear's tee time at North Island Manawatu Club in Wellington, New Zealand, as he attempted for the second year in a row to become the first person in the world to complete a round of golf in the new millennium. "I wanted to make sure I had both years covered in case someone gets picky about which is the true millennium," said Gear, referring to worldwide confusion about whether a millennium - or a century or a decade - starts with a year ending in the number 0 or the number 1. "Just to be safe," Gear once more raced around the course with a luminous golf ball, a 3-iron and a light strapped to his head.

In many sports, players troop off the field at halftime, get a drink of water, listen to a coach's speech, maybe have a smoke and then go back out for the second half. In hockey, there are two intermissions and the coach doesn't always have a lot to say. So what do the players do?According to Capitals defenseman Paul Cavallini, hockey players -- who put on more equipment than just about any other athlete -- spend much of their time between each period taking off and putting back on their equipment.

The game of golf seems to be a popular, reoccurring theme for Hollywood movie makers over the years, whether as part of a drama or comedy, or simply as the background setting in dozens of films. Caddyshack and Happy Gilmore quickly come to mind as entertaining comedic golf films; Tin Cup was an entertaining underdog story; and nearly every movie made by the golf-loving Farrelly Brothers contains a few golf scenes. The Legend of Bagger Vance and Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius represent recent more serious, dramatic portrayals of a fictional and a genuine golfing marvel, respectively.
