After a false start last month, spring skiing has truly arrived in the mountains of California, and the timing couldn't be better. In the Southland, there's more than adequate snow for at least the next couple of weeks through Easter, meaning skiers and snowboarders should be able to take full advantage of the various spring break periods--and pick up a partial suntan along the way. Special events are scheduled at almost every resort from Big Bear to Mt.

Prince Naseem Hamed entered the Madison Square Garden ring Friday night in a shower of confetti and to loud music and spotlights. His entrance was nearly as spectacular as his fourth-round victory over Kevin Kelley. Each man was knocked down three times in a wild fight that ended when Kelley was counted out at 2:27 of the fourth round.

Top three jokes making the rounds here about Ross Rebagliati, the smokin', tokin', busted snowboarder from Canada: "O Cannabis!" "He was going for the gold, the Acapulco Gold." "Welcome to Fast Times at Nagano City." Of course, drug usage in sports, of any kind, is very serious business, not to be taken lightly, no laughing matter. And did you hear the one about Rebagliati getting caught because they found crumpled Ding Dong and Doritos wrappers stuffed inside his snow boots?

Those traveling to any of California's major ski areas during the holidays can be sure of one thing: a white Christmas. Therefore, in an effort to determine which area is exhibiting the most holiday spirit, I made some calls, sent some e-mail and opened some press releases, and came to the conclusion that, if I were taking a family on a skiing vacation for Christmas vacation, I would go to Lake Tahoe.

A Salt Lake Winter Olympic scandal involving a controversial figure skating decision, an internal investigation by the International Skating Union and a Chinese judge suddenly and mysteriously taking ill? How quaint. No under-the-table freebies? No behind-closed-door gratuities? Just an old-fashioned squabble over who really won the pairs gold medal, coupled with accusations of political back-scratching and bloc voting? It's enough to make you misty-eyed, and you don't even have to be Canadian.

A test at the 1996 Olympic trials showed that Slaney had high levels of testosterone. USATF said it fully supports the outcome of its hearing panel and will vigorously oppose any efforts to overturn the decision.

There is one in every crowd, especially when that crowd is a scrum of cold and cranky sportswriters vacuum-packed into the holding cell at White Ring arena they call the figure skating "mixed zone." While waiting, and waiting, to see if Elvis Stojko might limp by for a word about Canada's latest failed attempt at winning the men's figure skating gold medal, one wise-guy scribe began singing to the tune of "O Canada": "We're NUM-ber Two!" Oh, Canada, 0-for-the-Olympics, still.
