As Tom De Angelis will be doing the cooking tonight, he must first take inventory of the kitchen. He's got hot sausage, for which he ventured all the way back to the old neighborhood, 11th Avenue in Bensonhurst. He's got the fried eggplant. And the pasta fagiole.Everything's set. De Angelis is ready for a family feast tonight here in Saddle River. There'll only be one problem, though, and that will be getting his son-in-law to eat."Lemme tell you about him," says Tom De Angelis, a retired New York City detective.

News item: Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said during Wednesday's "State of the Ravens" news conference that quarterback Joe Flacco is the key to his team's chances of developing into a Super Bowl champion. My take: If this were simply a statement of fact, it would rank on the revelation scale somewhere between "ice is cold" and "you can find my blog - The Schmuck Stops Here - at baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog," but it was pretty apparent that Bisciotti was sending a message to Joe Cool and Co. that he isn't going to be satisfied with the second round of the playoffs every year.

ALBERTVILLE, France -- Herschel Walker is sliding far faster than anyone imagined at the Winter Olympics but not in a bobsled.The NFL's ambassador to the North Pole has seen his credentials downgraded from heavyweight to dead weight. An athlete with overall skills beyond those of 99.99 percent of humanity has been sent home, rejected by the U.S. rocket squad by a driver who didn't like what he was seeing in his rearview mirror.This requires some serious attitude adjustment. No matter how humble Herschel is in interviews, clearly he decided at an early age that there wasn't a snowball's chance in Wrightsville, Ga., he would ever be cut from any team involved in running, jumping, lifting or shoving.

Earlier this summer, the Supreme Court told the state of Georgia it relied too heavily on race in creating congressional districts. In drawing a new map, race cannot be the predominant factor, but politics can be.And politics can be a potent force. The Georgia General Assembly convenes today in special session to undertake this political mapmaking, a task that is certain to affect similar cases in North Carolina, Texas, New York and Louisiana.At stake are three congressional districts with sizable black populations and eight predominantly white, Republican-voting districts.

DALLAS -- The blow struck by the Honorable Herschel Walker, against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday eve, was quietly toasted by a secret cell of hardliners.They are not in disguise, these diehards. They are easily identified by flowing gray beards, confused expressions and a habit of lurching when arising from a lounger. Confronted with anything newfangled, they utter the code word: harumph, and if they are outside, they will spit.Each wears a medallion emblazoned with the number 34 worn by Mr. Earl Campbell.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The San Francisco 49ers learned the hard way that you can't keep a good receiver down.Anthony Carter, his left knee within inches of the turf, bounced off safety Johnnie Jackson and turned a short pass into a 46-yard touchdown yesterday, sparking the Minnesota Vikings to 17-14 victory.Jerry Rice caught two touchdown passes, but Carter -- who also made a diving catch to set up Herschel Walker's go-ahead score and a 32-yard reverse that helped the Vikings run out the clock -- was the big-play receiver.

Herschel Walker, acquired by the Minnesota Vikings in a blockbuster trade last year, said he's frustrated and confused over his role in the offense and the criticism he has received on all fronts. His agent, Peter Johnson, said the trade was a "terrible waste" for Walker and the Vikings."I don't know how long I'll play the game," Walker told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I want to do what's best for the Minnesota Vikings, because they gave up a ton to get me. But since I've been there, all they've done is act like I'm in the way. This is upsetting to me because I have no idea what's going on anymore.

Minnesota Vikings running back Herschel Walker got his first taste of riding down a bobsled run yesterday.Walker and driver Brian Shimer covered the 1,430-meter Olympic bobsled course at Lake Placid, N.Y., in 1 minute, 2.03 seconds, about five or six seconds off what is considered a good run.Walker said he wasn't out to break any records, but rather to get experience in the sled and on the refrigerated track."
