About 10,000 people, including townspeople, family members, dignitaries and fellow aviators, crowded into a small church in Udine, Italy, for the funeral of the three Italian air force pilots killed in Sunday's air show disaster in Ramstein, West Germany. The coffins of Lt. Col. Mario Naldini, Lt. Col. Ivo Nutarelli and Capt. Giorgio Alessio were borne in a solemn procession through Udine, which is only 12 miles from the Rivolto air base, headquarters of Italy's Tricolor Arrows aerobatics team.

Daniel Fonseca made his World Cup debut a dramatic one and lifted Uruguay into the second round. The 20-year-old substitute headed in a long free kick by Alfonso Dominguez with only seconds to go for a 1-0 victory over South Korea at Udine, Italy, on Thursday. Uruguay had to win to advance for the first time in 20 years. "I looked up and thanked God," Fonseca said after giving Latin American teams a five-for-five record in qualifying for the second round this year.

No one would dare make a chair from beads, theater ticket stubs, plastic forks or wheat stalks. Unless it's a miniature chair such as those in George Beylerian's collection. Beylerian is a design and marketing consultant in the home and office furnishings industry in New York. His first miniature came by way of a trade promotion during a trip to Italy in the mid-1980s.

We laugh when we hear that Central Asian nomads drink kumiss, a sort of wine made from fermented milk. Ho ho, we say, bet you can get really hammered on that yogurt beer. Well, some weeks ago the Swedish newspaper Expressen reported that a farmer opened his barn and found his 2,500 pigs staggering, fighting or passed out. Their feed, milk residue from a nearby dairy, had fermented into kumiss, more or less.

Another one jumps the pond. U.S. defender Carlos Bocanegra completed a three-year deal with Fulham on Tuesday and joined four other Americans who play regularly in England's Premier League. Bocanegra, 26, a former All-American at UCLA, was transferred for free from the Chicago Fire of Major League Soccer. He is a two-time MLS defender of the year. "I have seen Carlos play and I could see that he has great potential," Fulham Coach Chris Coleman said.

When Lamar Odom arrived last June as part of the Shaquille O'Neal trade, there were those who said he would fill the role of Scottie Pippen, while Kobe Bryant would be like Michael Jordan. It hasn't quite happened that way, with the Lakers fighting for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference and Odom still trying to find his way in the team's pecking order. Odom is averaging 15.6 points and a team-best 10.

Raffaele Scarano sips his red wine, a satisfied smile breaking out under his thick mustache. It's not any old table wine he's drinking, but a special selection with labels bearing images of some of the 20th century's most despised figures. Scarano is partial to the label adorned with a picture of his hero, the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

In a nice change of pace since Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the Lakers added a player. And then another. At the end of a week in which Shaquille O'Neal stalked off and a handful of others chose to become free agents, the Lakers drafted Slovenian point guard Sasha Vujacic and Providence power forward Marcus Douthit with the 27th and 56th picks in Thursday night's draft.
