Venturing where no sportswriter should ever go, England's Ian Stafford stepped into the ring with Roy Jones Jr., the light-heavyweight champion of the world. Why? "I was intrigued to know what it was really like to feel the nerves of a pre-fight boxer," Stafford wrote in the British edition of Esquire magazine, "to be hit, over and over again, and to withstand the pressure." He found out soon enough.

 JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. - Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was covered in blood when he walked back to his base in southern Afghanistan after a nighttime attack that left 16 civilians dead, and samples from his clothing have been positively matched with blood found at the scene of the shootings, an Army investigator testified Thursday. Christine Trapolsi, a DNA analyst at the U.S. Army Criminal Investigative Laboratory, said she identified the blood of four people on various parts of Bales' pants, shirt, boxer shorts, gloves, boots and weapons.

Valentine's Day is one of the most celebrated, most gift-oriented holidays of the year. It's also one of those days when the adage, "It's the thought that counts," really doesn't cut it. As we see it, when buying a Valentine's gift for that special someone, it's almost got to be perfect. A can opener probably won't do, but a cappuccino machine might.

How my daughter enjoyed the President Clinton paper doll and outfits in the Jan. 10 issue ("The First Wardrobe"). She sat on the couch for two hours cutting out the clothes and having a fashion show. My husband and I couldn't stop laughing. In an age when so much in the news and in politics is depressing, seeing Clinton in his boxer shorts brightened our day. How does the President feel about 10 million people seeing him in his boxer shorts--or should I ask how Mrs. Clinton feels about that?

It's popular these days to have a love-hate relationship with Facebook ... or maybe just a hate-hate. The IPO was underwhelming, and no one likes the new timeline or that annoying ticker that flows to the right of the screen. People worry about how their personal information is being stored and used. They even made fun of Mark Zuckerberg for being flummoxed by an ATM during his honeymoon. But you can't say a bad thing about Facebook to me. Nothing will convince me it's not the best thing ever.

POP MUSIC The South African rap trio Die Antwoord so perfectly upends every au courant collision in urban, electronica and world music today that, well, larger forces seem at play. The band's founder, Ninja (a.k.a. Waddy Jones, a longtime rap- and art-scene veteran in Johannesburg), is a leonine, flat-topped MC covered in crude prison-style tattoos who's frequently onstage in little more than "Dark Side of the Moon" boxer shorts. The band's producer, DJ Hi-Tek, is a rotund and mute beatsmith fond of marijuana-themed bandanas and cutting tracks on his "PC computer" that he uploads to the "interwebs worldwide.

AT THE risk of over-sharing, I have a confession: My job got me hooked on high-priced underpants. For most of my adult life I've been perfectly happy with the same standard-issue, boldly patterned, $14 J. Crew knickers I've always worn, the ones festooned with hamburgers, tiki drinks, mermaids and deck chairs in the summer, snowmen, Christmas trees and Santa Clauses in the winter.

Layering is the latest variation in the ripped-jean look. Through the unbelievably tattered jeans so chic these days, one can catch a glimpse of lacy stockings or patterned leggings. Like other hip girls, Lisa Herbert of North Hollywood has cultivated a whole look. "If I'm going out at night to a club," she says, "I usually wear fishnet or black lace stockings underneath. If I'm just doing day stuff, or if it's cold out, I usually wear black and white striped leggings underneath."

Doing the skivvy shimmy is Vaughn Lowery, 28, the star of a Kmart commercial for Joe Boxer shorts.
