Want to get an eyeful of David Beckham's bum? How about the hot soccer star picking a wedgie, twice? Beckham does that and much more in the new commercial for H&M David Beckham bodywear directed by Guy Ritchie. Marc Atlan was creative director on the commercial, shot on location in Los Angeles. It features Beckham clad only in green underwear running around the streets of Beverly Hills in pursuit of his robe, which has been caught in a car door and is being dragged along. He leaps over fences, races down the street, kicks a soccer ball, swims the length of a pool and jumps over a car hood, all while wearing nothing but his knickers.

"Obviously, he's had a phenomenal career up to this point," Philbin said before a Thursday evening Make-A-Wish Foundation auction at Miami's Sun Life Stadium.

Last Wednesday at the Santa Monica market, rivulets of sweat coursed down the brow of Ron Cornelsen, a stone fruit grower from Reedley, and it was only 9 a.m. The previous day it had been 107 degrees in his orchard, and the monsoonal humidity made things so miserable that he had to pay his workers a 30% premium to harvest under such brutal conditions, he said. Even worse, after an unusual late downpour last week, much of his crop dropped from the trees and developed brown rot when it warmed up. When the heat takes such a toll on both humans and produce, it's time to appreciate those growers, like Cornelsen, who get up at 3 a.m. and drive in from the Fresno area to sell personally at farmers markets.

USC defensive linemen intend to turn up the pressure when the Trojans play Saturday at Oregon State. USC ranks seventh in the Pacific 10 Conference with only 22 sacks. But there could be more opportunities against a Beavers offensive line that includes several walk-ons and former walk-ons and gives up nearly three sacks a game. The Trojans' much-maligned pass defense, ranked 116th among 120 major college teams, could certainly use a strong game from the line. "We've talked about it," defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said.

The Golden Calf A Novel Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov Translated from the Russian by Konstantin Gurevich and Helen Anderson Open Letter: 336 pp., $15.95 paper From 1928 to 1932, the Soviet Union carried out the first Five Year Plan, initiated the disastrous policy of collectivization and strengthened the gulag.
