Brazil must be one party-happy place right now. Its soccer team won the World Cup. Helio Castroneves won the Indianapolis 500. And today at 4 in Toronto, Cristiano da Matta has his second chance this season to tie the Championship Auto Racing Team's record for consecutive victories in that open-wheel series. Da Matta, in fact, was so happy when Brazil won the World Cup he and the rest of the Brazilian CART drivers shaved their heads in the style of team star Ronaldo (a shaved head except for the forward third)

Lil Shelton, the long-time coach of the No. 2 Severna Park field hockey team, doesn't like being ahead by one goal late in a game. "It makes me nervous," she said. But Monday, with sophomore Liz Matta in goal, she didn't have to worry. Under pressure, Matta, who made 11 saves — at least five of them in the last nine minutes — was exhilarated by the challenge being brought by a determined Garrison Forrest squad, and held on to lead the visiting Falcons to a 2-1 victory. The win improves Severna Park's record to 3-0, while No. 3 Garrison Forest drops to 2-1. Adding to the excitement was the fact the game matched two long-time successful programs.

Ohio State basketball coach Thad Matta recently shocked some germ freaks by invoking the legendary three-second rule during a game. After accidentally spitting out his chewing gum, Matta scooped it off the floor and popped it back into his mouth, explaining that it hadn't been on the ground long enough to be contaminated. But just how germy was that sticky gum? And was Matta better off because he picked up his gum in three seconds rather than five? Researchers who have actually looked into the three- to five-second rule say, "Nope, sorry."

Roberto Echaurren Matta, 91, a Chilean master of surrealist painting and sculpture, died Saturday in a hospital in Civitavecchia, near the Tuscan town of Tarquinia, where he lived in a convent. Chilean President Ricardo Lagos said Mr. Matta's death "represents the passing of one of the last major figures of painting in the 20th century." Mr. Matta's images of cosmic creation were true to surrealist ideals, although his imaginative use of color and sense of humor made his work difficult to classify.

There is a small reprieve for those looking to find tickets to the Ravens-Denver Broncos playoff game Sunday. Denver returned about 200 tickets that will go on sale today at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. It is one of the few ways a person can get a ticket. The Ravens sold all 2,500 general public tickets on Dec. 21 in 18 minutes, guaranteeing their first playoff game in Baltimore would be a sellout. "If you don't know one of the players and you want to go, you're in trouble," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' vice president of public relations and marketing.

DAYTON, Ohio - For Xavier coach Thad Matta, the realization came early. On Saint Joseph's first possession, Delonte West got the ball 15 feet from the basket, squared his shoulders and launched a jump shot that hit the front rim. Hard. Matta did a double-take. In the teams' previous meeting two months ago, West made all 12 of his field-goal attempts, including three from three-point range, and all six free throws en route to a 33-point performance. Twenty-two seconds into the rematch, in a quarterfinal game of the Atlantic 10 tournament, the standout junior was 0-for-1.

Joel Brown has a lot going for him at Ohio State. The former Woodlawn High national indoor 60-meter hurdles champion is an All-America track athlete in the Big Ten, and he isn't taking his once-in-a-lifetime ride for granted. "The Big Ten defines the true meaning of college athletics," said Brown, who is a senior in the classroom but a junior in track eligibility for the No. 12 Buckeyes. "I was fortunate Ohio State gave me an opportunity to come here. When all this [track career] is over, I might just come back to Baltimore and be a coach."
