The chant began the instant the Colts' placekicker set foot on the field. From deep within Memorial Stadium, football fans growled his name in near-ritualistic delight. RAAAOOOOL ... RAAAOOOOL. Raul Allegre would save the day, they swore. Often, he did. Four times as a rookie in 1983, Allegre booted game-winning field goals for the Colts (7-9), who boasted his right leg and little else on offense. The Mexico-born kicker accounted for 112 points, or nearly half of the team's output that year, its last in Baltimore.

HAVANA, Cuba -- The economics minister uses phrases like "developing our human capital" while citing ways that the government is battling to improve daily life for its people. Meanwhile, a key student leader worries that Cuba's youth might be lost to the lures of the flashy consumerism thriving in much of the rest of the world. These are interesting days in communist Cuba. While top leaders remain committed to socialism, there seems to be something of a debate going on in Cuba about the island's future.

The Yankees clubhouse, a coolly professional space after wins and losses alike, was giddy about Raul Ibanez's theatrics on Wednesday night. "You can't script something like that," New York outfielder Nick Swisher said. "Talk about a huge momentum shift in our favor. And man, we're excited to get back here tomorrow and try to close out the series. " Swisher gushed about Ibanez's professionalism in waiting around all game, only to pounce on the first good pitch he saw "In situations like that, it's such a stressful time, trying to go out and put quality at-bats together," Swisher said.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Would a "perfect storm" help resolve the tedious Fidel Castro illness-and-succession saga gripping Cuba? At a recent forum on the island's future, specialists suggested that - contrary to some hopes after the Cuban dictator first took ill - essentially no possibility presently exists for a post-Castro collapse. That is, unless a perfect storm develops. Now, I have to admit that I would be very pleased if Mr. Castro would wither away and a freer Cuba would emerge. For too long, the island's people have been denied self-determination and subjected to the whims of a crusty communist who refuses to accept that the "best" days of his movement and philosophy lie behind him. But so many questions swirled around Mr. Castro's health crisis at its onset that it was impossible to determine if he was actually indisposed.

For most ordinary mortals, the celebration of an 80th birthday would be little more than a sobering milestone. But for those following the remarkable life and seemingly endless rule of Fidel Castro, who becomes an octogenarian today, his descent into frail old age has significance far beyond the boundaries of his beloved Cuba. The recent news that an ailing Castro, the world's longest-serving dictator, had "temporarily" handed over the reins of power to his brother, Raul, sent reverberations through the Western hemisphere.

Fidel Castro has made official what seemed inevitable since he disappeared from the spotlight 18 months ago following surgery. His resignation as president of Cuba is the end of an era, but it should also mark the beginning of a new relationship between Cuba and the U.S. This transition of power in Cuba comes with more of a whimper and not the bang with which Mr. Castro led the revolution nearly half a century ago that transformed his country from an...

The Orioles knew that duplicating their regular-season success at Yankee Stadium wouldn't be easy - that beating the Yankeesin October in their home ballpark would take an extra level of resiliency. Now, after a heart-breaking, 12-inning, 3-2 walk-off loss to the Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Division Series, they will need to reinvent an entirely new brand of Oriole Magic to keep their season alive. The Orioles were just two outs away from taking a commanding 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.

In his first public declaration as acting president, Raul Castro said he has mobilized tens of thousands of reservists and militia to defend Cuba against a potential U.S. threat. "We could not rule out the risk of somebody going crazy, or even crazier, within the U.S. government," he said in an interview yesterday in the Communist Party newspaper Granma. Under the headline "No enemy can defeat us," the 75-year-old Cuban defense minister lambasted President Bush's efforts to derail a peaceful succession of power in Cuba and boasted that "absolute tranquillity is reigning in the country."

HAVANA -- It was a side of Raul Castro that Cubans rarely see. Known as a dour, distant and austere general, Cuba's interim leader spoke Wednesday evening to hundreds of university students about his youth, his leadership style and his older brother, the ailing Fidel Castro, whom he described as "irreplaceable." After remaining mostly in the shadows since Fidel Castro ceded power to him in late July after undergoing surgery, Raul Castro explained in the nationally televised speech that, unlike his older brother, he is a man of few words.
