Two weeks have passed since Real Madrid made its brief stopover in Los Angeles, where it dismantled the Galaxy at the Home Depot Center before heading for the Far East. In that time, the Galaxy has played two games, won neither, made no coaching changes, signed no new players, shown little sign of doing either and pretty much puttered along in a business-as-usual mode. Small wonder then that the Major League Soccer club remains largely out of the news, invisible even in its own city.

A replica of the schooner America, winner of the 1851 race around the Isle of Wight that became the America's Cup, will sail into San Diego at about 1 p.m. today. The Spanish-owned boat will be moored at the Southwestern Yacht Club at Point Loma through the end of the competition in May and will participate in a parade of Cup boats in San Diego Bay on March 1. The boat, built by Goudy and Stevens in Rhode Island in 1967, is 104 feet, 5 inches long, with a 22-10 beam and an 11-6 draft.

Some things about our nation's capital are eternal: stately monuments, infighting, wilting summer humidity, confounding street grid and, mysteriously, hotels by and large unbecoming of the most powerful capital city on Earth. The monuments are as grand as ever, the politicians are still politicizing and the grid hasn't changed, but this fall travelers have something to celebrate besides the end to mugginess: a host of new lodgings that add allure to a D.C. stay. Hype and hoopla envelop the W Washington D.C., which opened in June with mod rooms and a swank bar overlooking the White House and the National Mall.

The French Open of peculiarity ended with a twisting, turning train-wreck of a finale, featuring not one, not two, but several massive reversals, and tears. It left Guillermo Coria of Argentina a broken man in every way -- physically, mentally and spiritually. And he won the first eight games, the first two sets and had two match points in the fifth set. His countryman, Gaston Gaudio, had looked as if he might be lucky to claim a game.

As children lofted soccer balls in MacArthur Park and ice cream vendors passed with bells ringing, a dozen Latino parents and the Real Madrid girls' soccer team crowded around an unfamiliar silver Airstream trailer earlier this week, full of questions. A Honduran immigrant, Miguel Velasquez, emerged and explained in Spanish to the group that the trailer is part of StoryCorps, a Brooklyn, N.Y.
