Every car window washed, every aluminum can plucked from the street kept the Ford family one shaky step from a homeless shelter. For the first time, Ron Ford had no regular job and no home. But he and Lydia, married for 19 years, were determined--and desperate--to stay out of a shelter. So every day for a year and a half, the family from Detroit scraped up the $60 they needed for food and a hotel room. "We were spinning our wheels until we had no more rubber on them," Ron Ford said.

Randy White has graduated from Manster to just plain man, which was bound to happen when he grew out of his 20s. At 34, White must step aside for the newest Dallas Cowboys defensive phenom, someone named Danny Noonan.
