Seven days before the opening ceremony and George Fitch already detects something missing from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Namely, fun. The last time the world's grandest sporting event touched down on Canadian soil -- at Calgary in 1988 -- Fitch assembled the Jamaican bobsled team, a hobbin', bobbin', T-shirt-sellin' crew that became an overnight sensation and, in time, a Disney movie. "People really liked us," Fitch said. "They saw this was good, this was what the Games were all about."

Re "The Eagle Has Landed," editorial, Oct. 13: The mighty bird hasn't landed, it has crashed. The new Times eagle looks more like a parrot. In fact, it looks worse than the old Times-Mirror corporate logo, and that was hideous. I can't imagine what inspires you to keep fooling around, trying to improve a sacred symbol of our Times. Wilson Locke Paradise, Calif. I don't mean to diminish the commendable symbolism you ascribe to The Times' eagle masthead; however, please don't overlook the fact that the quill upon which the eagle perches is on top of the sword.

Laura Marling always had an epic in her. Even from her earliest teenage recordings, such as her 2008 debut, "Alas, I Cannot Swim," her songs had the stuff of myths - suicide, revenge, impossible love. With "Once I Was an Eagle," she's finally made a record that matches the magnitude of her vision, and puts her well ahead of almost any twentysomething singer-songwriter peer working today. The early word on "Eagle" is that Marling recorded the bulk of the album's vocal and guitar parts in a single day. That's a neat talking point, but all it really suggests is that these songs arrived so fully formed in her mind that it took only a few takes apiece to nail them.

I doubt Thomas K. Arnold attended the evening Glenn Frey concert at the Del Mar Fair as he indicated in his article ("Ex-Eagle Frey Can't Fly Solo," July 9). I believe that he attended the afternoon performance, on the same day. I heard negative comments regarding the afternoon concert. Even so, a friend and I were killing time after working at the fair and decided to attend. Well, surprise, surprise! I want to report that there were few comments from Glenn Frey at the evening show.

Tiger Woods has stormed back into the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a six-under-par 66 on Saturday during the third round at Bay Hill. The former No. 1 player in the world can reclaim the top spot for the first time since October 2010 with a victory on Sunday. He just happens to be a seven-time champion at Bay Hill, so the odds are very good he will be No. 1 when the new rankings are released Monday. Woods moved into the lead on Saturday with an eagle at No. 16. You can watch him hit his approach shot and make a 20-foot putt in the video below.
