It looks like an NHL arena. It actually looks nicer than most NHL arenas, big without being cavernous and modern without being stark. It sounds like an NHL arena. It rocks with the cheers of nearly 9,000 fans at each hockey game, more than attend some games in Hartford and Washington. Then why isn't Bradley Center home to an NHL team? Although Milwaukee seems to have everything a professional league could want, major league hockey has passed it by.

Andre Agassi righted himself quickly enough to defeat Juan Carlos Ferrero of Spain and give Andy Roddick the year-end No. 1 men's tennis ranking. After a miserable 1 1/2 sets, Agassi began finding his strokes and rallied to stun Ferrero, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, Wednesday night in the Tennis Masters Cup at Houston.

Expansion hockey, the downside: Tampa Bay General Manager Phil Esposito didn't look like a proud father in June as he stood on the stage in the Montreal ballroom where he had rummaged through the scrap heap known as the NHL's expansion draft.

Maybe the pacifier-toting, diaper-clad fans in Quebec were right about the Philadelphia Flyers' Eric Lindros. More and more, it seems that hockey has found its first, truly nasty star player, a boor with major marquee appeal.
