On the morning of my appearance before an Iranian Revolutionary Court, where I was convicted on a fabricated charge of espionage, I heard the chant "Death to America!" from the world beyond my prison window. The chant, and the associated stereotype of Islamic Iran, was quite different from what I heard in Section 209, the grim area of Evin Prison where political detainees are beaten, tortured and held without charge. As Americans, my friend and cellmate Shane Bauer and I were denied contact with Iranian inmates during our imprisonment there.

I recently took my 12-year-old to the Shane's Inspiration playground at Griffith Park. Why would a preteen want to go to the park when she is into rock concerts, the mall and talking on the phone? This "boundless" playground is new and has made site accommodations for all children with disabilities to play with nondisabled peers. This was the first time she could experience a swing on her own and wheel to it, due to the lack of sand. For years playgrounds were only a place we could look at. Thank you to the city for recognizing the need for all children to play.

What happened to Shane Mosley? Good question, says his father and trainer, Jack, who has seen his talented son move from dazzling lightweight prospect to frustrated contender to a long, bizarre stay in boxing limbo. Better question: What hasn't happened? "We were sitting in a restaurant a while ago, and we asked the waitress if she knew who Shane Mosley was and she said, 'No,' " Jack Mosley said. "And then we asked if she knew Vernon Forrest, and she says, 'Yeah.' Oscar De La Hoya? 'Yeah.'

Coliseum Cowboys, doing the six-gun chop. Texans. Ex-Texans. Wanna-be Texans. Everywhere you looked, California cowpokes. Bumper-to-bumper in their cars, rump-to-rump in their seats. They came from Thousand Oaks, where the Dallas team once trained, and from a thousand other towns. Came to form a crowd that--at 91,505--was exactly 300 greater than attended the Raiders' first two home games. "Had to be half our crowd," said Nate Newton, a 303-pound Cowboy buckaroo. Half, Nate?

World Series MVP David Ortiz needed encouragement to keep from shaving his beard this season. Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino struggled just to grow his. Neither of them had a problem with ridding themselves of the facial hair Monday during a charity event to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The so-called shave-off was sponsored by Gillette, which donated $100,000 to the One Fund. Bushy beards became a signature look for the champs this year after outfielder Jonny Gomes and first baseman Mike Napoli encouraged the rest of the team to stop shaving during spring training and throughout the season.

BOSTON - At the end of the fourth inning Wednesday night, the Boston Police Department issued a statement reporting that the bars in the Kenmore Square area were filled and telling people without game tickets to leave the area. The sense of anticipation wasn't lost on a community ready to celebrate the Red Sox's first World Series clinching at Fenway Park since 1918 and completely rid themselves of the pain of a last-place finish in the American League East in 2012. The early celebration was understandable after the Red Sox pounced on rookie Michael Wacha for six runs in the first four innings and relied on the strong pitching of John Lackey to cruise to a 6-1 victory and top the St. Louis Cardinals four games to two in the best-of-seven series.

  Shane Mosley is the only man to have fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, so there might be another man to ask about Saturday's super-fight than the former three-division world champion from Pomona. Mosley, 42, now preparing for an Oct. 23 fight in Australia against Anthony Mundine, let Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 knockouts) use his Big Bear Lake home boxing ring to train in advance of the bout against Mayweather (44-0) at MGM Grand. Alvarez beat Mosley by decision in May 2012, and Mayweather Jr. also beat Mosley unanimously after getting rocked by him in the second round of their May 2010 bout.
