STUART, Va. -- New Winston Cup fans may not be aware of Glen and Leonard Wood, whose roots are deep in NASCAR history. But for longtime followers, the Wood Brothers are every bit as well-known as the Petty clan, Junior Johnson and the Allisons -- Bobby, Donnie and Davey. Glen and Leonard Wood are the soft-spoken Virginians whose family business turned out to be owning race cars. They are celebrating 50 years in the sport this season, having compiled records that still stand: 80 superspeedway victories, 53 500-mile wins, 87 superspeedway poles and 26 superspeedway races won from the pole.

World Cup coverage showed Western bias against ArgentinesAs an avid soccer fan, I have been most disappointed in the recent World Cup coverage. No wonder the Spanish-speaking network Univision attracts many who speak no Spanish.The Sun's wire service story of the England vs. Argentina match was depressingly biased ("Agony for England," July 1). Granted, England has greater appeal to the American viewer. I only wish that American reporters were equally candid.On Univision, it is out in the open: Commentators root for Latin American squads.

I want to express my sincere appreciation to Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens for being a positive role model and representative of the team. I am an active duty Army officer assigned to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. On Sunday, I took my son, an avid Ravens fan, to see Baltimore dominate the St. Louis Rams. I promised my son that we would wait after the game to see the Ravens players and try to get an autograph. While only a few of the Ravens players took the time to talk to the fans, Mr. Reed was the true standout class act!
