Bronka Sundstrom, 77, became the oldest woman to climb Mt. Rainier, completing her ascent in 19 hours. "I just never thought I could do it," Sundstrom said. "I'm an old lady." Guide Jason Edwards found inspiration in her effort. "What she did was incredible, and that's what I wrote in the summer register," he said. "People like her prove that life doesn't stop at any given age. It stops when you give up, and she hasn't given up." OK, so what does Bronka plan for an encore? Mt. Whitney?

Jamie McCourt has testified that she would never have signed away her right to a share in the Dodgers, but on Thursday a Boston lawyer flatly denied she ever told him that. "She never indicated that she wanted ownership interest in the Dodgers or that she was willing to take on the risk" financially, said Larry Silverstein, who drew up the controversial 2004 marital property agreement that makes the Dodgers Frank McCourt's sole property and the couple's many homes Jamie's.

Timothy Goebel is but a youngster, only 19, still a green underclassman when it comes to this odd exercise on ice that is more a political science than a sport.

You can make it impenetrable, invulnerable, immune to any approach, no matter how noble, provided you sit at the judges' table--also known in figure skating as the Moat Around The Status Quo. Thursday night at Gund Arena, Goebel received a hard lesson in siege strategy during the men's short program at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
