Tiger Woods hasn't taken over the entire world, as his dad once implied he would. But this weekend, starting today, he takes over the capital of the free world. He's hosting a golf tournament at Congressional that's a combined tribute to the Washington community, the troops and his newborn daughter, Sam. And to his father, Earl. The tourney's official name is the AT&T National, but the better name would be the Tiger's Dad Memorial. Woods spoke at length to reporters Tuesday, and in every answer, it seemed, was the thread of his father's influence: on his upbringing, his discipline, the commitment to charity, his respect for servicemen - Earl was a Green Beret - and his new family responsibilities.

HERNDON, Va. -- Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs found something to laugh about in almost everything yesterday.That's how it is four days before the NFL college draft, when your team has its first first-round pick since 1983.And that's how it is when the coach says the team isn't really hurting at any one position."Last year, we needed defenders so badly we were talking them up among ourselves, making them out to be better than they were," Gibbs said. "But this time, I don't think we have a glaring need.

Joe Flacco is in the midst of a whirlwind season, from unexpectedly being handed the starting quarterback job to leading the Ravens' improbable run to the playoffs. But the stoic 23-year-old rookie from the University of Delaware is approaching the biggest game of his brief NFL career with a matter-of-fact shoulder shrug. "It's just another game," he deadpanned. Flacco's calm demeanor, which has been as much an asset as his strong arm in the Ravens' remarkable turnaround season, will be tested today against the Miami Dolphins.
