An E-Z-Go golf cart, a Yamaha grand piano, some Lladro figurines. It's the stuff of two long and remarkable lives - the lives of Bob and Dolores Hope. He lived to be 100, she 102, and together they hosted more than six decades' worth of presidents and stars at their Toluca Lake and Palm Springs homes. On Sept. 20 and 21, Julien's Auctions will sell more than 600 items from the Hopes' two homes, a collection including antiques, memorabilia and personal property from his show business career and their political and philanthropic work and golf avocations.

MEDINAH, Ill. - U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III will take some flak for benching Team Terrific (Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley) in favor of Team Tiger (Woods and Steve Stricker).

Now 55, the music industry veteran from Cave Creek, Ariz., was arrested following a concert in Maine for high-jinks many might consider appropriate for his, ahem, advancing age.
