Michael Phelps continued his global mystery tour this week with a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to film his newest Subway commercial with soccer legend Pele.

The list of Brazilian soccer legends began with the incomparable Pele, who as a 17-year-old led his country to the first of five World Cups in 1958. It has continued, nearly unabated, for a half-century. Now, it's Neymar's star turn. The 20-year-old striker, who in his short career has made a habit of scoring goals against the U.S. whenever the two countries meet, lived up to his advance billing Wednesday night with a goal and two assists in leading Brazil to a 4-1 victory over the Americans in front of 67,619 fans at FedEx Field.

NEW YORK -- In another life, Tori Amos' "Professional Widow" might have been a Led Zeppelin tune.Just listen to the way the opening notes growl, scraping up through the blues scale with the same jackhammer insistenceas "Black Dog" or "When the Levee Breaks." It's precisely the sort of fist-pumping power riff Jimmy Page would play -- except that Amos plays it on harpsichord."My musicians were dying to put guitar on this," Amos says, smiling smugly. Even bassist George Porter wanted to join in, take the heavy-rock route, and ride the power of the riff.

HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii -- Today's nomination for worst job in America: mail carrier to the volcanoes.Six days a week, mail sacks bulging with slivers, chunks and sometimes bricks of lava are dragged into the ranger station on the edge of Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world.More lava is the last thing this moonscape of a place needs, and more work is the last thing the rangers need. But still the lava comes -- all of it returned to the source, more or less, by star-crossed tourists desperate to lift the "Curse of Pele."

In a way, there's a lot of Led Zeppelin in the Tori Amos phenomenon. It isn't so much that Amos grew up idolizing the British heavy rockers (though she did) as it is the way her relationship with her audience and critics mirrors theirs. Led Zep, remember, was roundly dismissed by the reviewers, who called the band's music pretentious, overblown and muddled by mysticism -- charges that were also leveled at Amos' latest, "Boys for Pele."But in both cases, what the critics missed in their analysis the fans felt in their hearts.
