Zachary "Zach" Lederer used to say he was "living the dream. " Even as his physical health deteriorated in the final year of his life, he told others he felt fantastic. Hundreds of people gathered Friday afternoon to remember the former manager of the Maryland men's basketball team, who died March 11 of brain cancer. The 20-year-old inspired cancer patients across the globe with his signature pose of pumping his fists with flexed biceps - a move that the crowd gathered at the Church of the Resurrection mimicked together in the pews during his memorial.

Zachary M. "Zach" Lederer's personal struggle and determination to survive brain cancer gave hope and inspiration to people across the world. The University of Maryland, College Park student and manager of the men's basketball team became known for "Zaching" - a muscle pose he made when he was recuperating after surgery. Mr. Lederer died Tuesday of the disease at his parents' Ellicott City home. He was 20. "We had a great bond. … It really hurt me seeing him hurt so bad," said Maryland basketball player Nick Faust, who was a freshman when Mr. Lederer started as the team manager.

Three prominent poker players participated in a Capitol Hill news conference yesterday voicing objections to proposed federal legislation that would ban Internet poker, along with other types of online gambling. Howard Lederer, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Greg Raymer, who all have affiliations with online poker Web sites, discussed two anti-Internet gambling bills, particularly one being pushed by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican. Goodlatte's bill, which faces a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee today, would expand a federal law that already prohibits sports gambling.

BOSTON - What then should be her epitaph? What final handle should we choose for the woman who was our adviser-in-chief? Sensible from Sioux City? Eppie Lederer died on Saturday, taking Ann Landers with her. The two were, after all, inseparable. For nearly half a century, Lederer/Landers made sense the way other people make cars or computer chips. Sense, however, was a much rarer product, harder to fashion and always in demand. In her newspaper office, in her apartment, in her bathtub, Ms. Lederer answered letters one decade after another until cancer finally did what few editors dared - ended her column.

Despite the success of the taped ESPN World Series of Poker telecasts, there is a question about whether audiences will be satisfied with getting their fix of flops, turns and rivers delayed over months, or if they will demand more immediate gratification. Say, with live poker. Professional player Howard Lederer believes that TV poker will have to take the leap to live broadcasts, despite potential pitfalls such as long stretches of boring hands and the unpredictability of how long a game will last.

COLLEGE PARK - The pain, Dez Wells said Saturday, is familiar. It is personal. The Maryland wing lost a cousin to cancer when he was 14 years old. She was only 7. Zach Lederer, maybe the most famous student manager in Maryland basketball history, is older than that, but the anguish in College Park was no less intense, the end to come no less unsettling. The 20-year-old Ellicott City native, whose strongman pose and indomitable spirit in the face of brain cancer spawned a viral homage , was taken off life support Friday night, family members said.

Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon sat next to freshman basketball manager Zach Lederer today and said: "God touches you in a lot of ways and he's touched us with Zach. " Lederer, who is battling brain cancer, appeared with Turgeon in the Comcast Center media room wearing a gray Maryland sweat suit. After surgery on Jan. 25, Lederer said the "plan is six months of chemo and then two-to-four and maybe zero months of radiation. " Lederer, 18, said 'Zaching' began when he flexed his muscles coming out of surgery, and his father took a picture.

The first tackle that Zach Lederer absorbed on the practice field this year was so violent that it left the rest of the Centennial High School football squad wondering about his health. But it was a hit the 17-year-old senior said he needed to take, to prove to himself that his recovery was complete from a brain tumor that could have killed him. "My teammates said, 'Man that was a hard hit,'" Zach recalled. "And I said, 'If that was a hard hit, I'll be fine.' It was a great thing because it got all of my fears out of the way. " Despite concerns from his parents and one of the best doctors in the world, Zach decided he wanted to become a full-fledged member of the Eagles during his senior year after serving as the team's manager.
