Saudi Arabia had a 10-page special supplement published in the Washington Post Monday morning touting the country's many assets. It missed at least five. Their names are Faud Amin, Majed Mohammed, Saeed Al Owairan, Abdullah Al Dossari and Mohammed Al Deayea. Never mind that Saudi Arabia lost to the Netherlands, 2-1, in front of a less-than-sellout crowd of 52,535 at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium here Monday evening.

The event was the European Little League championships, featuring teams of 11- and 12-year-old boys. Saudi Arabia beat Israel 50-0. The match was believed to be the first of its kind between the two nations, which are officially at war with each other.

Operation Desert Sneed has begun, and while it may not be the easiest of missions, it figures to be a lot of fun. John Sneed, fired as Cal State Fullerton's basketball coach after a four-year career that was at times exhilarating, often exasperating, but mostly frustrating, has experienced a renaissance of sorts since becoming Saudi Arabia's national team coach in June.

Former Cal State Fullerton basketball Coach John Sneed has signed a two-year contract as coach of the Saudi Arabian National team, Sneed said Monday. Sneed coached the Titans for four years, including an interim year. His contract was not renewed after the end of last season. Fullerton was 55-59 including 12-16 last season under Sneed. "It's a little different," Sneed said about his new job. "It's all going to be new to me. It's a different challenge."
