Denver billionaire Philip F. Anschutz on Thursday recouped at least some of the money he has invested in Major League Soccer by selling the MetroStars to Austrian businessman Dietrich "Didi" Mateschitz in a deal worth an estimated $50 million. In announcing the purchase, Mateschitz said the team would be renamed Red Bull New York, after the energy drink company he founded, which has sales of more than $1.5 billion a year.

On the cover of the daily "Incident Action Plan" for the Station fire is an unusual warning: "No energy drinks." Even though firefighters expend a tremendous amount of energy, officials said high levels of caffeine in many energy drinks can be dangerous. "It's been a concern," said Nathan Judy of the U.S. Forest Service. "When they drink those things, it dehydrates them." Judy said that during a previous fire some years back, a firefighter consumed four cans of Red Bull in one day and went into diabetic shock.

NEW YORK--Nearly all sports documentaries follow a rise and fall pattern, sometimes changing up the sequence but rarely the elements.  The good ones, though, manage to follow the formula with style and depth. It's easy to make the case that the Tribeca Film Festival world premiere "McConkey," a new documentary from a group of directors working for Red Bull's media arm, falls in the latter category. The profile of the extreme-sports pioneer Shane McConkey is both remarkable to look at and, at a screening I attended, didn't leave a dry eye in the house.

Parents might start hearing more about Red Bull during pediatrician visits. Researchers at the University of Miami have reviewed the literature on energy drinks -- caffeinated beverages such as Red Bull, which sometimes also contain herbal supplements -- and their effects on children. It's no great surprise that they found that the products, many of which have three times the caffeine of a cola and some of which have five times more, might be quite harmful to kids. Their results were released by the journal Pediatrics on Monday.

Brian France has his share of critics, but it was hard to dispute NASCAR's chairman when he once observed that cheating in stock car racing has "been going on forever. It will go on forever." Even though France and other NASCAR officials have tried to stamp out cheating with tougher penalties -- especially with the Car of Tomorrow now being driven in the top-tier Sprint Cup Series -- the rules violations just keep on coming. The latest: the No. 83 Red Bull Toyota driven by Brian Vickers.

The Formula One championship race became more crowded atop the standings when Ferrari driver Fernando Alsonso claimed victory in the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on Sunday. Reigning series champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull finished fourth to remain atop the standings, but he's only three points ahead of Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen, who finished second in Shanghai. Alonso is now third in the series standings while Sunday pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, who took third, is in fourth place.

Coca-Cola Co. said it is not in talks to acquire Corona-based energy drinks maker Monster Beverage Corp., despite rumors to the contrary that caused Monster's stock to spike on Monday. A Wall Street Journal story that said Coca-Cola had its eye on buying Monster caused shares of the smaller company, which have nearly doubled in the last 52 weeks, to spike more than 27% from Friday's $65.53 close to $83.31 around noon in New York. But Monday afternoon, Coca-Cola issued a statement denying the report.

DO your kids enjoy the box more than the toy that came in it? Then they might appreciate the possibilities of a new drink bottle conceived by noted industrial designer Yves Behar. Chubby knobs make it easy for little hands to hold the new Y Water. After the vitamin-infused beverage is consumed (or spilled), the 9-ounce plastic bottles can be refilled, recycled or, better yet, played with.

Andy Roddick's softest shots made the biggest impact Sunday. He kept Tomas Berdych out of rhythm by hitting delicate backhands, loopy forehands and changeup first serves. By the ninth game, Berdych was so flummoxed that he lost track of the score. There was no confusion about the final result: Roddick beat Berdych, 7-5, 6-4, to win the Sony Ericsson Open at Key Biscayne, Fla. It was Roddick's fifth title in a Masters 1000 tournament — one level below the Grand Slams — and his first since 2006.
