Friday's editions included a Q&A with Notre Dame Junior midfielder Jim Marlatt. Due to space constraints, here are some more answers from the Clarksville native and River Hill graduate that did not make the cut. How does a guy from Clarksville and River Hill end up in South Bend, Indiana? There was definitely some interest in staying closer to home. I have four younger siblings, including a little brother I'd love to see a little bit more often. But I think the balance between academics and athletics, just how well they take care of their athletes and making sure they do well in school are what really attracted me there.

The future of Ottawa's 118-year-old Canadian Football League franchise was in doubt yesterday after Elliot Maisel, a Mobile, Ala., beer distributor, withdrew his offer to purchase the Rough Riders.Maisel agreed to buy the Riders last week and keep them in Ottawa at least two more seasons. But he apparently had a change of heart when a league audit of the team turned up new creditors and a fiscal liability of $2.5 million.Despite a league announcement that Maisel pulled out, Baltimore owner Jim Speros said he believes Ottawa will have a team next season -- and that Maisel will be the owner.

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. -- Nearly a hundred years after the last shots were fired, admirers of Theodore Roosevelt are gearing up to fight a new battle of San Juan Hill.If they win, Roosevelt will finally get the Medal of Honor he was denied after his Rough Riders helped capture the Cuban hill and turned the volunteer officer into a national hero.Roosevelt's commanding officers nominated him for the nation's highest military honor soon after the Spanish-American War, but the Army balked. Some say it was because his gallantry wasn't extraordinary enough.

Nothing is more bully than war, "Rough Riders" would have us believe, and no man was ever more bully than Theodore Roosevelt. His mythic charge up Cuba's San Juan Hill is rousingly dramatized in TNT's four-hour miniseries, which, unfortunately, overstays its welcome by at least a third.This dream project for writer-director John Milius ("Red Dawn," "Conan the Barbarian"), for whom macho has provided a way of life and a paycheck, so oozes with testosterone that your TV screen may start sprouting facial hair.

Many years later, Theodore Roosevelt looked back on his "great day," July 1, 1898."It was a lovely morning," he wrote, "the sky a cloudless blue, while the level shimmering rays of the just-risen sun brought into relief the splendid palms which here and there towered above the lower growth. The lofty and beautiful mountains hemmed in the Santiago plain, making it an amphitheater for the battle."No mention there of the suffocating tropical heat, the mud, the confusion, the abominable slop that passed for rations, the stink of death and hasty latrines.
