When University of Missouri All-American defensive lineman Michael Sam came out publicly in interviews over the weekend, he put himself in a position to become the first openly gay player in the National Football League - if, as expected, he's chosen by a team in the May draft. Professional team sports are among the last arenas of public life to embrace openly gay people, and the NFL is expected to be a particularly tough culture to challenge. Sam is brave to go public in advance of the NFL draft, when his announcement could potentially harm his standing and drop him down a few notches.

It wasn't a short, sweet, four-game, two-week trip to college basketball's grand stage. It wasn't as simple as winning two games in Philadelphia, two more in Arizona, throwing on some hats, doing a few dances, grabbing a trophy and moving on to Detroit. But Connecticut, single-minded and tenacious, is back in the Final Four for the third time. On Saturday afternoon at cavernous University of Phoenix Stadium, the top-seeded Huskies outlasted No.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas finally played somebody, the somebody was Missouri, and that ended all the "Rock Chalk" title talk. It took until Nov. 24 to find out that No. 3 Missouri, not No. 2 Kansas, was probably the Big 12 Conference school you needed to throw your arms around. Missouri dominated most of Saturday night's eagerly awaited battle at Arrowhead Stadium, then survived a frantic fourth-quarter rally to hold off Kansas, 36-28.

When they named a University of Missouri sports arena after their daughter, billionaire Wal-Mart heirs Nancy and Bill Laurie pronounced themselves "very proud" parents. But this week, they found themselves stripping Paige's name from the building -- after accusations that she paid a roommate $20,000 to do most of her course work at the University of Southern California.

Even the harshest critics agree it could have been worse. The billionaire basketball fans who put up $25 million to build an arena for their beloved University of Missouri Tigers could have named the complex after a pet. Or one of their many horses.

The men and women who came of age during the Great Depression and served in World War II have only recently been given the accolade "The Greatest Generation." That they did not give themselves such a name is itself an indication of how modest and matter-of-fact they had been about their sacrifices and heroism. But even in the midst of an all-out war, not everyone gets to be a hero. A.E. Hotchner was an entry-level lawyer in a St.

With only three days left until she tied the knot, Jane Edith Wilson was going to have one last wild night as a single woman. The Conga Room? A male strip show? Nope. Wilson, a 36-year-old Los Angeles actress-comedian spent her waning minutes as an unattached woman gripping a large neon ball and bowling with seven friends. On a recent night at Jillian's Hi-Life Lanes in Universal City--a cross between a retro bowling alley and ritzy bar--the bachelorette party was well underway.
