DURBAN, South Africa — Despite its European title, the record-tying 35-match unbeaten streak it carried into last summer and the No. 1 world ranking it had four months ago, Spain somehow manages to sneak up on people. Vicente del Bosque , the team's unexcitable coach, promises the long-overdue recognition of others won't change Spain. "We will try to keep our eyes wide open and not be blinded by success," he said Wednesday after a 1-0 semifinal victory over Germany.

Spain might have seen its reign as an international soccer power come crashing down in the first two weeks of the World Cup last month in Brazil, but its potential as a major factor in women's golf was in sharp focus the past few days at the LPGA's inaugural International Crown. The Spaniards, who arrived at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills last week with confident games and rather anonymous profiles, left Sunday carrying the glistening silver trophy and wearing the four individual crowns for their victory in the eight-country, 32-player event.

A Maryland man is suing British Airways over an intended flight to Spain that ended up taking him to the West Indies. In court documents, Edward Gamson said he booked a first-class flight from Washington Dulles International Airport to Granada, Spain, via London last September for him and his partner. But he said British Airways instead put the two on a flight to Grenada, an island in the Caribbean, some 4,000 miles from his intended destination. Gamson said he did not realize the error until the flight had departed London and was already over the Atlantic en route to the West Indies.

One of my favorite parts of a vacation is learning about a new city or country's literary tradition, and visiting places where it was forged. A highlight of my recent stay in Spain was a trip to Genada's Alhambra, a spectacular Moorish palace that dates to the 13th Century as a royal residence (and has sections that are even older). I had bought a copy of Washington Irving's "Tales of the Alhambra" at a second-hand bookshop in Madrid, and spent several days reading the remarkable stories, including a recollection of boys who baited fishing rods with flies and tried to catch sparrows from the castle towers.

WHO CAN FATHOM the dark corner of the human heart that could conceive of the series of bombings on Spanish trains yesterday? Somewhere, at this moment, the sponsors of these attacks, which killed more than 190 early-risers on their way to work, are undoubtedly finding satisfaction in their success - and how can that be? Spaniards are asking themselves the same questions that Americans faced after 9/11. President Bush expressed his nation's sympathy for the Spanish people yesterday, and appropriately so. In a very real and wrenching way, there is a solidarity among countries that have gone through the horror of mass murder.

Apparently it is possible to have too much success. At least that's the opinion of Vicente del Bosque, who has seen Spanish soccer achieve unprecedented levels of success in recent years. The national team has won the last two European Championships as well as the 2010 World Cup. On the club level, three Spanish teams — Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid — went down to the final weekend before deciding this season's La Liga winner. And all three teams reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, with Real Madrid and Atletico meeting in last month's final.

Yesterday in one sentence: They were draws in the scorebook, but Mexico beat Brazil, 0-0, and South Korea beat Russia, 1-1. What's on tap: Australia vs Netherlands, noon, ESPN; Spain vs. Chile, 3 p.m.; ESPN; Cameroon vs. Croatia, 6 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: I said yesterday would decide Group A, and it did in the sense that Brazil decided they didn't terribly want to take control of the group. The goalless draw with Mexico leaves both teams on four points, and a draw today in the Croatia-Cameroon game leaves the juicy possibility that all four teams could finish on four points and create the kind of silly chaos only the World Cup can provide.

Yesterday in one sentence: World Cup officiating is probably going to be brutal and will ruin the tournament for some, no matter how deserved Brazil's 3-1 win was . What's on tap today: Mexico vs. Cameroon, noon, ESPN2; Spain vs. Netherlands, 3 p.m., ESPN; Chile vs Australia, 6 p.m., ESPN2. What you'll see: All eyes are on the Spain-Netherlands game, a rematch of the 2010 final. Spain has only reloaded since then, while the Dutch find themselves in something of a transitional phase.

Welcome to week six of what has been the most boring season of "The Bachelorette" ever. If Des were smart she would demand 25 new guys and a do-over. Des and her merry band of metrosexuals are off to Barcelona, Spain, which according to Des is the perfect place to fall in love -- so were Munich and Atlantic City, but we all know how those cities worked out in the love department. The guys sit semi-circle and drink beer while they wait for Chris Harrison to arrive. Brooks looks like something out of the Crayola fall collection in burnt orange pants and a cranberry hoodie.
