Shortly before the start of what would be his final season coaching the Chiefs, Herm Edwards called a meeting for many of his best young players: Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles, Glenn Dorsey, Brandon Flowers and others. Perhaps sensing he wouldn't be their coach much longer, Edwards told those players that the Chiefs eventually would be built around them. "They were going to be the foundation of this football team down the road, and I told them that," said Edwards, now an analyst on ESPN.

You've just bid $255 on a black Chanel suit and $168 on a vintage Cartier ladies wristwatch, when you see it: a Judith Leiber purple rhinestone clutch "circa 2000s." The current bidding price for the tiny evening bag by the famous designer is $670, with 10 hours to go. You must have it. But can you afford it? If you have to ask, maybe you shouldn't be shopping on www.portero.com, a Web site that dubs itself "eBay for the affluent." "There has been an explosion in the online market, but luxury has not grown as quickly," says Michael Sheldon, founder and CEO of the company, which has offices in Manhattan, Scarsdale, N.Y., and Greenwich, Conn.

THE TROUBLE with three-day weekends, such as this one, is that they often morph into three-day home-repair projects. Just ask the guys and gals who work at area hardware stores and home-improvement centers. They know that when some of us are faced with extra leisure time, especially on winter weekends, we are overcome with an urge to tackle "the project." Seconds after draining our morning cups of coffee, we are grabbing our measuring tapes and hightailing it to the store searching for supplies and advice.
