Rick Davis, Salsa general manager, is expected to be named coach of the American Professional Soccer League team this morning, a source familiar with the situation said Tuesday. Davis, a key figure in efforts to build U.S. interest in the sport since the 1970s, would neither confirm nor deny that he would be presented as the Salsa's second coach in a news conference today at the club's training facility at Cal State Fullerton.

As Sen. John McCain's top presidential campaign advisor, Rick Davis has worked for almost a year without compensation, telling reporters that the sacrifice shows his dedication to the cash-strapped Republican. He also took a protracted leave from his Washington lobbying firm to distance himself from ethical questions. But in the eight years since Davis first managed a McCain campaign, his relationship with the Arizona senator has been a lucrative commodity.

When Rick Davis stepped to the mound Feb. 6 at Arizona, ranked second in the country, he was the best-kept pitching secret in college baseball. Davis, a senior right-hander from Upland, had been a shortstop a year before for Cal State Dominguez Hills. But he beat Arizona, 2-1, striking out 12. The outing elevated him in the eyes of major league scouts, and the next time he threw, his parents counted at least 10 radar guns aimed at their 22-year-old son.

King Hussein of Jordan is regarded as a good friend of the United States, but that doesn't change the fact that he runs a very tough regime where independent political expression is sure to invite official notice and trouble. Like Britain, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan defines itself as a constitutional monarchy. Unlike Britain, its monarch is closer to being a dictator than a figurehead, while such constitutionalism as may exist stops well short of encouraging open and free debate.

Can you imagine a football fan who doesn't know who Joe Montana is? Who never heard of Red Grange? Or, the Four Horsemen? Who thinks Notre Dame is a cathedral in Paris? Who thinks the Green Bay Packers sell meat? That the Miami Dolphins perform at Sea World? There's about 500 million of them. They have never seen a forward pass or a zone defense. When you say "football" in most parts of the world, you mean it. You are talking about a game that is played only with the feet.

When 70,000 soccer fans knew of her birth before her father, it probably was just a matter of time before Esperanza's Leigh Ann Davis ended up on a soccer field. Fifteen years ago, her father, Rick Davis, was the starting midfielder for the New York Cosmos. With their first child on the way, Rick's wife, Kelly, moved to California to be with her parents while she awaited Leigh Ann's appearance. Rick stayed in New York, smack in the middle of the North American Soccer League season.

So our boys in faded denim stars and adidas stripes are up against it, right? Backs pressed to the Rose Bowl's outer barbed-wire security fence. Facing mighty, and mighty agitated, Colombia today, with Gheorghe Hagi the Great and the Romanian empire on deck Sunday. Easier for the Americans to find a needle in Carlos Valderrama's haircut than to win either one of those games and advance to the World Cup's second round, no? Clearly, these are times that try men's soles.

When Rick Davis stepped to the mound Feb. 6 at Arizona, ranked second in the country, he was the best-kept pitching secret in college baseball. Davis, a senior right-hander from Upland, had been a shortstop a year before for Cal State Dominguez Hills. But he beat Arizona, 2-1, striking out 12. The outing elevated him in the eyes of major league scouts, and the next time he threw, his parents counted at least 10 radar guns aimed at their 22-year-old son. "He's a pretty good-looking prospect," said Dodger scout Bobby Darwin.
