A public relations firm representing prospective Minnesota Viking owner Reggie Fowler issued a revised fact sheet on Fowler on Wednesday after questions were raised about the accuracy of an official biography. Fowler's original bio claimed he played in the NFL, the Canadian Football League and in the Little League World Series and implied that he earned a business administration and finance degree from the University of Wyoming.

To many people, Reggie Fowler is more than the potential future owner of the Minnesota Vikings. They consider him a role model, a soft-spoken pioneer who could be mere weeks away from becoming the first African American to buy an NFL franchise. The Arizona entrepreneur was introduced at the team's headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minn., this week after reaching an agreement to buy the Vikings from Red McCombs for a reported $625 million to $635 million, pending approval from the league.

Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler agreed to buy the Minnesota Vikings in a deal that would make him the NFL's first black owner. Fowler declined to say how much he would pay for the team. Published reports and a rival bidder, Minnesota Timberwolf owner Glen Taylor, put the price at about $625 million. Owner Red McCombs had the team on the block since 2002. Taylor had offered about $600 million, though some of that money was contingent on a stadium being built.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. That is the assessment of CNNSI.com's Stewart Mandel, who wrote that USC should be wary of its Nov. 19 game against Fresno State, which should field its best team since the 2001 squad that opened its season with victories over Colorado, Wisconsin and Oregon State. "At least in terms of returning players, Fresno may be the toughest foe on USC's schedule," Mandel wrote.

The NFL received a powerful -- if predictable -- endorsement Friday in favor of putting a team back in Los Angeles. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger gave a thumbs up to the idea after meeting in Sacramento for an hour with NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who stopped in on his way to Hawaii for the annual league meetings. "A Los Angeles NFL team means good jobs, increased tourism and economic growth for California," the governor said in a written statement.

Zach Parise's penalty shot was stopped with 1:25 left, but the United States clinched a spot in the quarterfinals of the World Hockey Championships by tying last-place Ukraine, 1-1, Monday at Innsbruck, Austria. The Americans trailed, 1-0, until defenseman Brett Hauer scored a power-play goal 2:45 into the third period. The penalty shot was awarded after Ukrainian goalie Kostyantyn Simchuk was called for delay of game when he intentionally knocked the net off its moorings as the U.S.

The Philadelphia Eagles released Freddie Mitchell on Friday, cutting ties with the wide receiver after four seasons in which he never lived up to his promise as a first-round draft choice.
