John Terry, England's former captain, has quit the national team, saying his place on the squad was untenable. Terry, Chelsea's 31-year-old defender, is facing a lengthy ban if the Football Assn. finds him guilty of racial abuse against Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand, who is black. Terry, who is white, was cleared of similar charges in court. “I am making this statement today in advance of the hearing of the FA disciplinary charge because I feel the FA, in pursuing charges against me where I have already been cleared in a court of law, have made my position with the national team untenable,” Terry said.

Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand refused to shake hands with Chelsea defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole before their English Premier League game Saturday in West London, continuing a feud that began last season. Terry, who is white, was accused by Ferdinand, who is black, of racial abuse during a game last season. Terry went to trial and was acquitted of the charge. Cole, who is black, testified on his teammates' behalf during the trial. Saturday was their first meeting on the pitch since the Terry's acquittal in July.

Corrie Sanders , the South African southpaw who knocked out Wladimir Klitschko in one of the most stunning upsets in heavyweight boxing, died early Sunday in Pretoria, South Africa, after being shot by robbers at a restaurant during a family member's 21st birthday party. The former World Boxing Organization and World Boxing Union champion was 46. Police Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said three armed men entered the restaurant Saturday night in Brits, in South Africa's North West province, with the apparent intention to rob it and shot randomly, hitting Sanders in the hand and stomach.

So what if John Terry had an extramarital affair with a French-born lingerie model? Any red-blooded male who has seen photographs of Vanessa Perroncel would surely understand. So what if she was the girlfriend of a teammate? Is it anyone's business but those involved? Did tens of thousands of breathless words have to be put on paper or uttered on the air worldwide over the last few days and weeks about the Chelsea and England captain's alleged dalliance? Apparently, the answer is yes. The world in 2010 can't get enough of salacious gossip and rumor, especially if the stories have basis in fact.

Last week was the week that Ashley Cole broke his ankle, Ryan Giggs broke his arm and Sepp Blatter broke his own record for inane remarks. This week is the week that John Terry returns from what must have been an interesting few days with his unhappy but likely soon-to-be-very-rich wife in Dubai, and the European Champions League returns from an all-too-long hiatus. Where to begin? Perhaps, given the fact that Vancouver will be in the headlines for only a couple of weeks before the Canadian city again fades into international obscurity, Blatter is the place to start.

LIVERPOOL, England -- At first blush, John Terry's racism trial looked like much ado about nothing. But it could turn out to be worse than that. Because though the case leveled at the former England national team captain was meant to stamp out racism in the sport, it may unwittingly be having the opposite effect. Terry, a defender for European champion Chelsea and one of the more controversial players in the English Premier League, was acquitted by a British court earlier this month of racial abuse.

With Jon Purdy's thoughtful, well-crafted "Reflections in the Dark," Mimi Rogers follows "The Rapture" and "Bulletproof Heart" with yet another striking, distinctive screen portrayal. After a brief but crucial prologue, we encounter her elegant, highly intelligent Regina, arriving in a prison holding cell for her final night before facing the electric chair, having been convicted of murdering her husband, Terry (John Terry).

Bryce Harper, the 19-year-old rookie outfielder for the Washington Nationals, continues his march toward the record for the most home runs in a season by a teenager in the major leagues after hitting his 19th on Friday night. Harper, possibly the most-hyped player to come along since Ken Griffey Jr. more than two decades ago, drove in the Nationals' only run in a 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves with a homer into the left-field stands in the sixth inning. The opposite-field shot moved him into second place overall and No. 1 all-time among National Leaguers, ahead of New York Giants slugger Mel Ott, who hit 18 homers as a 19-year-old in 1928, his third season in the majors.

Chelsea is reportedly in negotiations with West London rival Queens Park Rangers over protocol for pregame matters, including the obligatory handshake between all team members, in the wake of Chelsea defender John Terry's racial abuse trial over a heated exchange he had last season with QPR's Anton Ferdinand, who is black. The two teams meet Saturday in an English Premier League game. Chelsea is currently atop the EPL standings with three consecutive wins to open the season. QPR is near the bottom of the 20-team standings with only one point for a draw, but it did defeat Chelsea, 1-0, in an FA Cup game earlier this year.

Marriage between word and music has never been simple, and is seldom stress-free. Take melodrama. I'm not sure what caused its meaning to change over the years. In the 18th century, melodrama was the genre of spoken word accompanied by — and elevated by — music. Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt and Richard Strauss were melodramatists. Now Oxford English Dictionary defines melodrama as "a crude appeal to the emotions. " But call it what you will, the genre in its original sense has never lost its effectiveness or appeal, as Aaron Copland's lasting "Lincoln Portrait," with its stirring orchestral score joined to Honest Abe's magnificent words, attests.

Tampering apparently is perfectly acceptable in England. Either that or the English have decidedly different rules about how and when soccer players under contract to one team can be approached by another team and asked to jump ship. John Terry is a good case in point. The captain of England's national side and of Chelsea in the English Premier League will be playing for the Blues against Inter Milan in a friendly international at 8 tonight at the Rose Bowl.
