INDIANAPOLIS -- For Chris Long, the potential No. 1 pick in this spring's NFL draft, the keys to success dangled from the janitor's belt loop. They unlocked the door to his high school weight room. Long, you see, took nothing for granted. Yes, he's the son of an NFL legend. Yes, his body was evolving from gangly to gargantuan. Yes, he had enough raw athleticism to throw down a 360-degree dunk in a game, never mind that basketball was merely his other sport. He still needed those keys.

INDIANAPOLIS - Kyle Long might never match what his father or brother has done in the NFL, but the Oregon offensive lineman is pretty proud he's gotten this far. As the son of Hall of Fame defensive lineman Howie Long, and the younger brother of St. Louis defensive end Chris Long, the No. 2 overall pick in 2008, Kyle took a bumpy, circuitous route to the scouting combine. That included a failed attempt at a baseball career and a battle with addiction, making an accomplishment such as an invitation to the combine that much more meaningful to him. "I fought my way back, and I'm standing here today as somebody who's at the NFL combine," Long said Thursday, the first day of player evaluations at the six-day annual event.

NEW YORK -- It's called the NFL draft, but it's almost like a high-stakes game of lining up dominoes. The first one is in place -- the Miami Dolphins made Michigan tackle Jake Long the No. 1 overall selection -- and the rest will begin falling today, when two of the seven rounds take place. According to the NFL, more people will be watching the draft than the NBA playoffs when the two events are being aired at the same time.

NEW YORK -- An NFL draft day that started Long (Jake) and Long (Chris) wound up being very deep for USC. A school-record seven Trojans were selected in the first two rounds. That eclipsed the previous mark of five, set in 1968 and 2006. USC Coach Pete Carroll envisioned this type of NFL payoff when he took over the football program before the 2001 season.

Mom affixed the name tag to my pressed rayon shirt and wetted down my cowlick. I kissed her on the cheek and set off on this World Cup soccer assignment. . . . kicking and screaming. I didn't want to meet the new kids. Like most Americans, I considered unworthy variants of football not flanked by the words National and League. I expected to grow sick and tired of soccer and, initially, this was the case.

Reporting from Milford, Conn. — There are generally two types of sports talk shows: loud and louder. And then there's Dan Patrick. The former ESPN anchor who along with Keith Olbermann helped establish the cable channel in the cultural zeitgeist through their dry wit and repartee, has carved out a second act as host of a sports talk show that relies more on brains than brass. Broadcasting on radio and simulcast on television for three hours every weekday morning from a converted apartment here known as the "man cave" Patrick — backed by his four sidekicks, "The Danettes" — has created a hit that has become an important stop not only for athletes but actors, musicians and the occasional super model.

Immigrants from an obscure corner of Mexico are changing heroin use in many parts of America. Farm boys from a tiny county that once depended on sugar cane have perfected an ingenious business model for selling a semi-processed form of Mexican heroin known as black tar. Using convenient delivery by car and aggressive marketing, they have moved into cities and small towns across the United States, often creating demand for heroin where there...
