Although "tea party" activists and other conservatives claim kinship with the founding fathers and the Spirit of '76, their emerging strategy for the November elections has more in common with the Spirit of '94 -- the year Republicans ended 40 years of Democratic dominance on Capitol Hill. Conservative strategists centered the 1994 Republican campaign on a "Contract with America." This year, GOP leaders in the House have pledged to issue their own, updated version of that agenda, which is widely credited with having helped Republicans focus their message and win a historic victory.

Zack Greinke's six-year deal with the Dodgers could be worth as much as $158 million, according to a person familiar with the details of the contract. But it's unlikely Greinke will collect the full amount, as it would require him to win six Cy Young Awards and be traded. Greinke's contract is guaranteed for $147 million. He will be paid a signing bonus of $12 million in several installments from this month to February 2014. His annual salary breakdown is as follows: 2013: $17 million 2014: $24 million 2015: $23 million 2016: $24 million 2017: $23 million 2018: $24 million Greinke's base salary in 2018 will increase to $26 million if he pitches 1,000 innings in his first five years of the contract.

Quarterback Tony Romo signed a six-year, $108-million contract extension with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday. That means the 32-year-old quarterback -- who turns 33 next month -- with only one playoff victory for “America's Team” could be the Cowboys' gun-slinging starter under contract until 2019. “I think it's just exciting more than anything that you know you're going to be here the rest of [your] career,” Romo said in a video interview on the Cowboys' official website .

A bidder for a lucrative media contract at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday accused a former airport commissioner of conflict of interest because of his involvement with a joint venture recommended for the work. In a formal protest, Clear Channel Airports leveled the conflict allegation against Alan Rothenberg, chairman of Premier Partnerships, which has joined JC Decaux Airport Inc., and Time Warner in a bid to handle indoor advertising, sponsorships and other media opportunities for LAX. Rothenberg, a prominent businessman and former sports executive, resigned as president of the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners in late 2010 after serving five years.
